State government.

Gov. Sarah Palin appointed William B. Carey to the Ketchikan Superior Court. Carey has served as a private-practice attorney in Anchorage since 1990, specializing in criminal defense in Southeast. Rebecca Hilgendorf, a licensed nursing home administrator, was chosen director of the State Department of Health and Social Services' Senior and Disabilities Services. She began her career with the department 26 years ago. David Cote was appointed director of Alaska Pioneer Homes. Cote has worked for the State as a social services program coordinator and officer.

In 2008, Palin created a rural subcabinet to study migration patterns and energy costs in rural Alaska. Subcabinet members will propose possible changes for improving life in Bush Alaska. Attorney General Talis Colberg is chairman, and other members are: Commerce Commissioner Emil Notti; Bill Hogan, Health and Social Services commissioner; Click Bishop, Labor commissioner; Craig Campbell, Military and Veterans Affairs commissioner; Larry Hartig, Environmental Conservation commissioner; Larry LeDoux, Education commissioner; Joe Masters, Public Safety commissioner; and John Katz, director of the Office of the Governor in Washington, D.C.

Palin appointed retired Superior Court Judge Karl Johnston, an Anchorage resident and sport fisherman who fished commercially for salmon in the 1980s, to the Alaska Board of Fisheries.
