Wading into Waste


As a relatively new member of the Hanford Advisory Board, I have spent the past year observing and learning from my HAB peers.  Much like the Hanford Site, the HAB is complex; it has its own culture, history and norms.  Granted, these are precisely the traits that make the board unique, but I’ve needed some time to feel as though I could meaningfully contribute.

Don’t get me wrong, I haven’t been completely silent.  Much to my surprise, my first comment as a board member landed me in a local newspaper! I’ve also shared my views on improving public involvement and questioned whether I, as a Public-at-Large representative, was comfortable endorsing a letter that would have supported waste storage exploration in another state (a state that surely has citizens who did not want the waste in their communities).
