Rick Perry, the current Governor of Texas, will be in San Francisco to discuss how his state is leading the way for America in creating energy independence by producing crude oil and electricity in many forms, including natural gas, coal, nuclear, wind, solar, bio-fuel and hydroelectric generation. In a recent letter to President Obama, Governor Perry wrote that the current federal policies will “incapacitate – and possibly eliminate – critical sources of energy while stifling job creation and threatening American energy policy.” Governor Perry has been in public office for over two decades, including 14 years as governor. He served in the US. Air Force and is a graduate of Texas A&M University. He will discuss energy and his ideas on other political issues of the day, including his experiences as a Republican candidate on the 2012 presidential campaign trail and his view of the road ahead.
