Palin Puts Wasilla On The Map

Real Estate Agent with Valley Market Real Estate

Governor Palin

John McCain just shocked America by choosing our governor and former Wasilla mayor as his Vice Presidential running mate.

All of a sudden, people all over the world are talking about Wasilla.  They are even pronouncing it correctly.  No more Waseea. 

Almost everyone I met today is excited about her candidacy.  Most of the people in this area voted for her as governor and still support her.  I think she still has an approval rating in the high 80s.

Our home phone started ringing early this morning.  Reporters were calling for my wife Grace who is a delegate to the Republican National Convention.  She is in New York state visiting relatives before heading for Minneapolis tomorrow for the convention. 

I’m not sure how this is going to change our little community.  Wasilla is already one of the fastest growing communities in the Alaska.  I guess we will wait and see.

Until then…GO SARAH.

Hi Rich,

I haven't retired, but I have a hard time keeping one blog going let alone two.  I'm not that fast of a writer.  What got me going is that I received an email from an active rain member berating me for not blogging about Sarah Palin.

Marty, I'm in Florida and think very highly of Sarah. I think she will go far. Wasilla will do well for years to come.
