Some thoughts on those who have made a difference.

Jerry Asher – Sergeant Major, US Army, retired. Full time Electric Vehicle (EV) activist/promoter. Jerry has given gobs of his time to the EV cause, but this last year 2008-09, Jerry and his team, including me, have staged the Plug in Hybrid Electric Vehicle (PHEV) All Across America(3A), see www.phev3A.com, educational tour, educating people about PHEVs one town at a time. Jerry also has a ready joke, which makes his a great wing-man for the FunRun.

Jo Reyes. Ace mechanic and the major builder of the BugE electric motorcycle. Jo is also co-owner, with Charlie, of the Green Commuter bicycle shop where we sell and service electric bicycles and regular bicycles, e-scooters, one e-motorcycle and an occasional electric car.
