Gov. Palin Picks Pam Pryor for Spokeswoman

According to Mike McCarville, reporter for Tulsa Today, Governor Palin has chosen Pam Pryor to speak to the media on her behalf (McCarville, 2009, ¶2-3).

"A member of [Governor] Palin's team in 2008 says that Pryor today is '[Governor] Palin's 'go-to girl. If Sarah has a doubt about anything, she talks to Pam. If Sarah wants to do something, she talks to Pam. Pam is a solid lock in [Governor] Palin's future.' " (McCarville, 2009, ¶4).

McCarville devoted the remainder of the article Ms. Pryor's biography and credentials.

Ms. Pryor "was named one of the 100 most powerful women in Washington by Washingtonian Magazine" (McCarville, 2009, ¶7). She has a solid background in college teaching and instruction, and broadcast media having been TV news anchor and reporter, as well as having a radio talk show in Oklahoma City (McCarville, 2009, ¶5). Ms. Pryor was Congressman J.C. Watts' press secretary (McCarville, 2009, ¶6), was responsible for GOP House communications (McCarville, 2009, ¶7), has had several public relations and communication clients under her consultancy including the RNC (McCarville, 2009, ¶8-9), and is a solid evangelical (McCarville, 2009, ¶10-11).


A leader is ultimately only as good as his or her reports. Governor Palin understands this fully and has a solid track record of making sound hiring decisions. This could not be more clear than when she held office and made 123 appointments during her final seven months. It was in fact, Governor Palin's hiring decisions that permitted her to leave office knowing that her vision and agenda would continue on. Her hiring decisions are why the decision to leave was prima facie brilliant. The choice of Ms. Pryor to serve as a spokeswoman is yet another example of a sound hiring decision made by a seasoned executive and Transformational Leader.
