Mr. Curtis has been a national response radiological counterterrorism field deployment team leader on the Nuclear Emergency Search Team (NEST) and the radiological Consequence Management teams for 15 years. As a radiological expert, Steve has deployed to field missions all around the world in support of DOE and DoD in response to counterterrorism incidents and scientific experiments. Mr. Curtis has been intimately involved in Yucca Mountain as an academic pursuit, having attended his first public meeting in 1981.
Currently, Steve is president of Alphatech, Inc. which is a company formed to expand technology to fight the counterterrorism war currently being waged worldwide. He conducts outreach as a speaker on nuclear science and engineering. He is especially interested in helping Nevadans realize their economic future through high-tech business development, especially related to “things nuclear”.
Mr. Curtis holds a BSEE and a Masters Degree in Health Physics and is a past president of both the Nevada Section of the American Nuclear Society and the Lake Mead Chapter of the Health Physics Society.
Robert J. Halstead is the Executive Director of the Nevada Agency for Nuclear Projects. He has been tasked with carrying out Nevada’s duties and responsibilities under the Nuclear Waste Policy Act.
Mr. Halstead has 38 years’ experience, and it is his duty to study the Yucca Mountain site and assess its suitability as a repository for high level radioactive waste and spent nuclear fuel.
Should the site be licensed by the Nuclear Regulatory Commission (“NRC”), it will be his job to construct and operate it.
Three new representatives will join the Las Vegas City Council on Wednesday. The last time so many new members joined the body was in 1941, said Chief Deputy City Clerk Stacey Campbell.
In Ward 1, former city employee Brian Knudsen will replace three-term former Councilwoman Lois Tarkanian. Former state Assemblywoman Olivia Diaz will assume the seat in Ward 3, previously occupied by two-term former Councilman Bob Coffin. Former state Assemblywoman Victoria Seaman will fill the vacant Ward 2 seat most recently occupied by former one-term Councilman Steve Seroka.
