Richardson Campaign Press Release - Richardson Campaign Launches New Hampshire Grassroots Environmentalist Initiative

November 08, 2007

MANCHESTER, NH-- The New Hampshire for Richardson campaign today announced the formation of Granite State Environmentalists for Richardson and released the names of more than fifty of the group's members, who are environmental leaders, activists, and entrepreneurs from across the state.

The Granite State Environmentalists for Richardson group will focus on grassroots voter outreach, informing New Hampshire voters about Governor Richardson's bold vision for combating global warming and eliminating our nation's crippling dependence on foreign oil. These ideas are the focus of Governor Richardson's new book, Leading by Example: How We Can Inspire an Energy and Security Revolution.

Laura and Gil Richardson, not related, of Benton Flats are founders of Empowered Homes LLC, a business that renovates and retrofits homes for efficient and renewable energy use. Their own home is completely "off-the-grid," meaning that it is completely energy self-sufficient.

"Energy is a true umbrella issue that impacts our health, our environment, and our economy," Laura Richardson said. "Governor Richardson has a bold plan to move our country toward energy independence. Having been a governor, congressman, and Energy Secretary, he can support his ideas with a clear record of real accomplishment."

Governor Richardson has been named an Environmental Leader of the Year by the National Environmental Trust, the National Wildlife Federation, and Vanity Fair magazine. The Sierra Club and the League of Conservation Voters have called his energy plan the most aggressive proposed by any Presidential candidate.
