Spotlight on Wasilla, AK Log Homes

I have a confession. Prior to Senator McCain announcing his surprise running mate, Governor Sarah Palin, I’m not sure that I had ever heard of the town Wasilla, Alaska. I know I’ve seen the name, but it did not register consciously with me. Additionally, I would have never been aware that Wasilla was electing a new mayor prior to Wasilla being thrust into the national limelight as Governor Palin’s home town.

What does this have to do with the subject of ‘log homes’?  Good question – glad you asked… the owner of Elkhorn Log Home Builders, Greg Koskela, is running for mayor of Wasilla (Mrs. Palin’s old job). He joins four other candidates vying for this position and he was a former Wasilla Planning Commissioner. Now that we know that mayor of Wasilla’s job is a stepping stone to the White House, this election is now national news. Read the rest of the story here.

If Mr. Koskela wins this mayoral election and follows in Governor Palin’s footsteps, we could someday have a log home builder in the White House. In the future, instead of teaching 3rd. graders about former Presidents that were born in log cabins, we could be teaching them about Presidents who build log cabins! 

Maybe I’m rushing things a little…
