Former N.M. Gov. Bill Richardson joins AMP electric car board

AMP Holding Inc. has added former U.S. Secretary of Energy and former New Mexico Gov. Bill Richardson to its advisory board.

During his tenure as governor, Richardson focused on clean energy, education, public safety, environment, transportation and health care initiatives. During that time, he made New Mexico a Clean Energy State and established a Renewable Energy Transmission Authority.

“Bill brings extensive knowledge and a strong base of experience in the clean energy and transportation area,” Steve Burns, AMP CEO, said in a statement. “He is deeply respected for his environmentally conscious accomplishments and insights, both nationally and internationally, and we feel AMP will benefit from this very special Advisory Board addition.”

Richardson also served for 15 years as a representative for New Mexico’s 3rd Congressional District and in 1997 represented the U.S. as ambassador to the United Nations under President Bill Clinton. In 1998, he was unanimously confirmed by the U.S. Senate as Secretary of the U.S. Department of Energy.

“I am pleased to join AMP Electric Vehicle’s Advisory Board,” Richardson said in a press release. “In manufacturing Workhorse(R) alternative fuel trucks, AMP is a leader in the fleet EV category. I look forward to working with this industry pioneer to help accelerate the manufacturing and widespread use of new alternative fuel fleet vehicles.”

AMP (OTC BB: AMPD), a manufacturer of alternative fuel vehicles, is based in Cincinnati.
