|Info||Todd Palin became the First Gentleman of Alaska when his wife, Governor Sarah Palin, was sworn into office on December 4, 2006. In this role, he has been a strong advocate for improving workforce development and vocational training in the state. |
Mr. Palin has worked for nearly 20 years as a production operator in the oil fields on Alaska’s North Slope, and he also is a lifelong commercial fisherman in Bristol Bay.
Mr. Palin was born in Dillingham, located in western Alaska, where he gained an appreciation for Alaska’s cultural heritage and traditions from his Yup'ik grandmother. These traditions and the state’s rugged outdoors have played an influential role in the life of the Palin family. Since 1993, the first gentleman has participated every year in the Iron Dog race—the world’s longest snowmachine race (spanning 2,000 miles, from Wasilla to Nome to Fairbanks). To date, he has won the championship four times.
A dedicated community volunteer, Mr. Palin also devotes his time and efforts in support of youth sports, coaching hockey and basketball.
The Palins were married in 1988, after college, and they have four children—Track (who enlisted in the U.S. Army on September 11, 2007); Willow; Bristol; and Piper. In his free time, the first gentleman enjoys fishing, flying and spending time with his family.
