I first got involved at Hanford when I started working for Westinghouse Hanford in 1979 while the Hanford site was in production mode. At that time the Fast Flux Test Facility (Breeder Reactor) was being commissioned. As the mission has changed to cleanup, I have stayed at Hanford.
As a worker, I am concerned about worker safety and cleanup activity decisions. As a Washington state native, I feel continued momentum and regional support is important to ensure the site is cleaned up. My long-term personal interests are future land use and long-term stewardship of the Site and the ALE Reserve.
