Mike Richter's next career move might be into politics
Three years into retirement, Richter, the father of three children, is almost as busy as he was in his puck-stopping days. He's in his third year at Yale, majoring in Ethics/Politics/Economics. He's on the board of RiverKeeper, an environmental organization dedicated to protecting the Hudson River. Democratic insiders in Westchester County, where Richter and his family lived through the latter part of his career, have made it known that they consider Richter, a registered Democrat, an attractive candidate.
"People mentioning that is a testament to how few good people are in office," Richter said, laughing. Still, he doesn't discount the possibility.
"I've left my plate open to see what's out there, what's possible," Richter said. "One of the reasons I wanted to go back to school was to expand those possibilities."
Hmm intresting, he is a good public speaker, but he just keeps going and going lol. I remember listening to his interviews and he would just keep going on and on, Sam and JD would have to cut him off half the time.
