Clean Cities Honors Outstanding Coalition Coordinators

October 1, 2010

The U.S. Department of Energy (DOE) honored and celebrated the work of a dozen Clean Cities coordinators and a Clean Cities subcontractor at the 2010 Clean Cities Coordinator Leadership Retreat in Rapid City, S.D.

Kevin Herdler of St. Louis was named Clean Cities Coordinator of the Year. Herdler has been involved in Clean Cities since the program's beginning, when he served as a fleet director for a county government in Atlanta in the mid 1990s. He joined forces with St. Louis Clean Cities (SLCC) in 1998 and became its coordinator in 2001. With Herdler at the helm, SLCC reduced the region's 2009 petroleum use by 3.3 million gasoline gallon equivalents and reduced greenhouse gas emissions by 28,600 tons.  

DOE also congratulated the six other nominees for Coordinator of the Year and thanked them for their outstanding work and dedication to petroleum reduction. The nominees included Mark Bentley of Alabama Clean Fuels Coalition, Barry Carr of Central New York Clean Cities, Colleen Crowninshield of Tucson Clean Cities, Chuck Feinberg of New Jersey Clean Cities, Stephanie Meyn of Puget Sound Clean Cities, and Greg Newhouse of San Diego Clean Fuels Coalition.  

Several Clean Cities coordinators also received acknowledgement from DOE for making exciting new progress in their regions. The following individuals received the Clean Cities Outstanding Regional Rising Star Award:

DOE also trained the spotlight on Stacy Noblet of ICF International, who manages the Clean Cities Technical Response Service. Noblet's superior ability and willingness to provide top-notch technical assistance earned her the Clean Cities Special Recognition Award, not to mention kudos from all the Clean Cities coordinators.  

Four Clean Cities coordinators were also honored by producers of the PBS television program MotorWeek, a weekly automotive news show for consumers. The program has featured the petroleum-reduction accomplishments of several Clean Cities coalitions. Producers gave the Outstanding MotorWeek Clean Cities Success Story Award to the following coordinators:
