NGVAmerica, Industry Leaders Endorse Rick Perry for Secretary of Energy
This week, NGVAmerica commended the announcement that President-elect Donald Trump has nominated Rick Perry, the former Gov. of Texas, as the next Secretary of Energy. As a leader in domestic energy production and job creation, he has fostered an era of greater energy independence in Texas.
“Governor Rick Perry is a strong choice to serve as our next Secretary of Energy,” said Matthew Godlewski, President of NGVAmerica. “He understands the potential of America’s domestic energy resources and the many benefits of using more clean-burning natural gas in transportation. NGVAmerica looks forward to collaborating with Governor Perry on smart policies in building an energy plan for America’s future.”
In addition, Clean Energy Fuels Board Member John S. Herrington (former U.S. Secretary of Energy during the Reagan Administration from 1985 to 1989), and CEO Andrew J. Littlefair gave their strong endorsement to former Texas Gov. Rick Perry for nomination as the Secretary of Energy.
“I have known Governor Perry for many years and he is an excellent choice for Secretary of Energy,” said Andrew J. Littlefair, president and CEO, Clean Energy. “His 14 years of leadership in Texas and his knowledge of the energy industry will give us the right energy plan to move our nation forward. Governor Perry was instrumental in driving new energy technologies in Texas, including wind, solar and natural gas, and I’m confident he will continue to push for comprehensive domestic energy production.”
NGVAmerica looks forward to its continued work with the Department of Energy under Gov. Perry’s leadership.
