Here is the list of speakers we have invited to participate in the Community Workshop on September 27th. Like the others invited to participate, each has expertise in certain aspects about nuclear power that will produce the kind of balanced perspective the City Council and the Public is seeking. Our expectation is that they will have equal time to present their points of view. If all are allowed to speak for fifteen minutes (or ten minutes each, with five minutes allowed for rebuttal from opposing views), that would take the first 1.5 hours. The remaining time would likely be sufficient for the public to ask questions.
