Sarah Palin, not down for skateboarding

…I found an article about Sarah Palin giving Wasilla skaters the run around when they tried to get a public park built ten years ago.

She told them Wasilla couldn’t afford it and then they found out she was planning a multi-million dollar hockey complex. So they formed a committee and attended city council meetings until she agreed to match funds with them if they raised a certain amount of cash. When they raised the money she backed out of the deal.

Skaters don’t know how to give up, so they kept going to city council meetings and bothering Sarah Palin until she finally caved in. Ten years later, the skatepark is still going strong. And there’s a video about it on youtube:

…good small town values.
