Sarah & Alaska: A lifelong kinship
Sarah Palin is a passionate voice for energy independence, fiscal responsibility, and a safe, secure America. She served as both the first female and the youngest governor of Alaska, and was the Republican Party’s first female vice presidential nominee.
When she was just 3 months old, Sarah moved to Alaska when her parents were hired to work in Skagway. Sarah’s father, Charles, was a science teacher and track coach. Her mother, Sally, was a school secretary. Sarah grew up in Wasilla, and prior to her election as governor she was elected to the Wasilla City Council and then served two terms as the mayor/manager of Wasilla. Sarah also served as chair of the Interstate Oil and Gas Compact Commission and the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Commission.
As chief executive of America’s largest state, she built a record as a reformer who cast aside politics-as-usual and pushed through changes other politicians only talked about, taking meaningful steps toward energy independence, passing bipartisan ethics reform, and facilitating the biggest private sector infrastructure project in U.S. history. And while revitalizing public school funding and ensuring the state met its responsibilities to seniors and Alaska Native populations, Palin also beat the political ‘good ol’ boys club’ at their own game.
She has five children, several grandchildren, and resides in Wasilla with her son Trig.
