May 31, 2009 Synopsis of Governor Palin's Accomplishments

Governor Palin presented Purple Hearts to war heroes at a VFW Post 10252 in Anchorage, AK.

Governor Palin wrote Op-Ed piece defending her veto of $28.6 million in poisoned stimulus funds.

The Governor made 17 appointments to boards, commissions, and councils.

Investor's Business Daily wrote an editorial supporting Governor Palin's pro-drilling, pro-domestic energy development positions.

Governor Palin urged Obama to follow a peace through strength methodology regarding North Korea and urged that the missile defense budget in her state not be cut.

The Governor celebrated Juneteenth Day at Z.J. Loussac Library in Anchorage, Alaska on May 22, 2009. There she was presented with a copy of Charles A. Taylor’s “Juneteenth: A Celebration of Freedom,” by

Reverend Ronald Myers. Juneteenth is a holiday commemorating the end of slavery in the United States. The holiday originated in Texas in 1865.

The 13th ethics complaint against Governor Palin in Alaska's system was summarily dismissed for lack of merit. The complainant became a critic of the Governor's after being denied a state job she had applied for. Half of the complainant's eight allegations mirrored those filed by left-wing bloggers and Democrat operatives -- complaints which were already dismissed, also for lack of merit and substance.

The Governor requested a federal disaster declaration for Alaska's flooded interior on May 26, 2009, pursuant the preliminary damage assessments she requested on May 21, 2009.

Governor Palin signed nine bills on Memorial Day in Compeau's, Fairbanks and North Pole. The Governor also issued a proclamation declaring May 25, 2009 to be Memorial Day and recited the proclamation at the

Fairbanks bill signing event. In Alaska, all holidays are established via gubernatorial proclamation.

Governor Palin, on May 21, 2009 signed six appropriations bills and as documented in the prior distillation, requested preliminary damage assessments a federal disaster declaration for Alaska's flooded

interior. That day -- the same hand that signed those appropriations bills and sought the preliminary damage assessments -- also wrote a thank you note to this author thanking him for his support. Several

others, this author knows also received hand-written personal notes -- done that day.

From the foregoing, we see that in 10 days, Governor Palin signed 15 bills, made 17 hiring decisions, and on one of her busiest days was up late at night hand-writing thank you cards to her supporters.
