Palin on Running Wasilla: “It’s Not Rocket Science”

WASILLA, Alaska– I’m here at the Mat-Su Frontiersman‘s offices flipping through their print archives. I was curious about what then-Mayor Sarah Palin said at the time about giving her top managers a loyalty test and eventually firing her chief of police.
I’m reading an article from October 1996, in which a reporter named Laura Mitchell Harris asks Palin about her intentions for a shake up. How would she effectively run a city without experienced leaders? “”It’s not rocket science,” Palin said, “It’s $6 million and 53 employees.”
Note: A big thank you to the Frontiersman for opening their newsroom to me!
Update: Internet access is a bit tough to come by here, so I update frequently on twitter via phone.
