Voter not swayed by Palin's nomination Last Friday, the choice for the 2008 Presidential election became more difficult for many Alaskans with the introduction of Governor Sarah Palin as John McCain's running mate.

Former Mayor Begich left us with a $17 million budget deficit. He departed to D.C. smelling like a rose, leaving our city in the hole. Furthermore, he was well aware of this deliberate shortage.
