He probably works at srs or is retired from the plant. But he does seem to know a great deal about the mox facility.

CAB & contractor influence

The CAB used to choose their own members but DOE took control of that little democratic effort. SRS officials filter member applications and really don't want those who know too much or who ask productive questions, unless they are affiliated with a contractor. The last chairman of the CAB was on the board of the contractor-funded Citizens for Nuclear Technology Awareness, a clear conflict of interest that harmed the CAB's reputation. Hopefully SRS officials learned something with that problem and will stay away from placing those who are affiliated with a financial interest on the CAB. Membership needs to be real citizens not affiliated with DOE or contractors. Keep it that way and the CAB can do its job properly.
