Support Governor Palin At SarahPAC

ANCHORAGE, Alaska – Alaska Governor Sarah Palin accompanied Franklin Graham, son of American icon and evangelist Billy Graham to the Alaska Native communities of Russian Mission and Marshall Feb. 20 to deliver boxes of food to village residents. Graham heads up Samaritan’s Purse, a Christian evangelical mission-based relief organization.
Among the many people who came to meet Palin and who sought to speak with her was Nicholas Tucker, the man whose letter to a local newspaper describing dire conditions in his home village of Emmonak set off a flurry of concern for Alaska’s rural residents.
His January letter described families who had to choose between heating oil or food, and parents who passed up meals to feed their children. In response, donations have been coming into rural Alaska since, and the state has sent commissioners to confer with village residents on untapped state aid. Sen. Mark Begich, D-Alaska, called on the BIA, which offered monetary assistance.
In a video by Alaska Newspapers Inc., Tucker can be seen speaking first to Alaska Lt. Gov. Sean Parnell. Though there have been copious news stories over the last few weeks spotlighting Tucker’s letter, Parnell evidently believed the elderly and softspoken Tucker was a blogger.
