Why did new Mayor Palin fire the police chief and librarian of Wassila?

Palin said in letters she wanted a change because she believed the two did not fully support her administration…. Palin refused Friday to detail her complaint … saying only that “You know in your heart when someone is supportive of you.”

Political loyalty above all else! Look into your heart! If that doesn’t sound like four more years of the same, I don’t know what does.

*Looks like the librarian stayed but the police chief went.
