Cultural Affairs Sec. Ashman to Join Peace Corps.

With only 11 days left in his term, we still don't know about the future plans of Gov. Bill Richardson and most of the key figures of his administration.
But, we just found out about one. Cultural Affairs Secretary Stuart Ashman, shown in the center of this photo playing guitar for an event in the Capitol Rotunda last year, will join the Peace Corps.

From the news release:

In his new role with the Peace Corps, Ashman will serve as a consultant, analyzing the work that Corps volunteers carry out on small business development activities supporting artisans in three Latin American countries.  The goal, says Ashman, is to “determine the feasibility of focusing on these arts activities as a benefit to communities in those countries.

Ashman, appointed by Richardson has been secretary since August 2003.
