Press releases & proclamations from the Alaska Governor's Office


Click here for 58 full quotes from Sarah Palin in the book Press releases & proclamations from the Alaska Governor's Office.
OR click on an issue category below for a subset.
Following is a collection of materials released from the Alaska governor's office while Sarah Palin was governor. The collection includes press releases, proclamations, and public reports, attributable to Gov. Palin.

We at OnTheIssues.org consider the pundits to be ridiculous when they assert statements like, "Gov. Palin has no record and is therefore an unknown." All public officials have substantial paper trails -- as we demonstrate here. The pundits REALLY mean "We are too lazy to look up Gov. Palin's record." Yes, it takes substantial digging, but that is the pundits' job.

We similarly located a substantive record from Gov. Palin's election race in 2006:

Gov. Palin fought hard for her governor's seat -- she unseated the incumbent Republican, Frank Murkowski, in the primary, then went on to beat a former Governor, Tony Knowles, in the general election. Palin won her seat the hard way -- beating TWO governors -- and accordingly deserves credit for her electoral skills.

Whether you plan to vote for Palin or not, read her record, rather than fall into the pundit's trap of self-imposed ignorance.

-- Jesse Gordon, editor, OnTheIssues.org, Sept. 2008
