Sarah Palin Bio

business leaders and entrepreneurs Biography - Information

Sarah Palin is best known for her role as Alaska's first female governor and as John McCain's choice for running mate for the Republican Party for the 2008 presidential election.

Sarah Palin was born on February 11, 1964 as Sarah Louise Heath in Sandpoint Idaho. At the age of three months, Palin's parents, Charles, a science teacher, and Sarah, a school secretary, moved her to Alaska where she spent her childhood hunting moose before school and running small races with her family.

As a young adult, Palin attended Wasilla High School where she helped lead the school basketball team to a championship in 1982. Her intensity on the team and focused discipline earned her the nickname "Sarah Barracuda". Two years after her championship match, Palin entered and won the Miss Wasilla beauty contest, allowing her to enter into the Miss Alaska pageant where she won second place and a college scholarship. Palin used the scholarship to attend the University of Idaho where she majored in communications and journalism and minored in political science.

After graduating with her bachelors in 1987, Sarah Palin returned to Alaska and married her high school sweetheart, Todd Palin. Shortly thereafter, Palin began working as a sports reporter for an Anchorage television station before diving into politics by joining the Wasilla city council in 1992. She served on the council until 1996 when she challenged the incumbent mayor of the city and won.

After swearing in as mayor, Palin began making radical changes to the city. She fired the police chief and library director, cut her own salary, cut property taxes by 40%, and increased sales taxes in order to pay for a new hockey rink and sports arena. While some citizens were stunned by her actions, she managed to win over voters and was re-elected as mayor in 1999 and later became president of the Alaska Conference of Mayors.

Sarah Palin unsuccessfully ran for lieutenant governor of Alaska in 2002 and lost to senator Frank Murkowski who later appointed Palin to the Alaska Oil and Gas Conservation Committee. She served on the committee until 2004 when she resigned to protest the "lack of ethics" within the committee and filed former complaints against two high-ranking Republican officials.

In 2006 Palin decided to run for governor on a platform of education, public safety, and transportation. She won by less than 8% of the vote. At the age of 42, Palin became Alaska's first woman governor and the youngest in the state's history. She consistently held high approval ratings among voters, as high as 90% according to some polls.

Palin's environmental focus has ranged from oil and gas resource development and higher taxes for oil companies to creating a group of advisors to determine the best steps to reduce greenhouse gases in Alaska. She has created new laws to allow a natural gas pipeline in the state's North Slope which negated previous laws and she has proposed giving some of Alaska's surplus oil revenue back to the consumers to offset rising energy costs. Sarah Palin has also spoken against the idea of listing polar bears on the endangered species list, siting the conflicts with gas and oil development in the region.

While in office as governor, Palin has taken steps to limit spending, increase oil and gas development, and reduce corruption in the Alaskan government. She has become well known for firing and replacing individuals who have expressed corrupt behavior.

In August of 2008 John McCain, the Republican Presidential nominee, announced Palin as his running mate for the upcoming election. They lost to Barack Obama and Joe Biden.

Sarah Palin and her husband have five children, the youngest born only four months prior to Palin's acceptance of vice presidential running mate.

I might add that in small towns, we don't quite know what to make of a candidate who lavishes praise on working people when they are listening, and then talks about how bitterly they cling to their religion and guns when those people aren't listening. (talking about Barack Obama at the Republican convention speech in 2008)
