Ken Korkia started working as a technical assistant to the Rocky Flats Cleanup Commission in 1990, and he was later hired as staff coordinator for the Rocky Flats Citizens Advisory Board. In this interview Korkia talks about developing a comprehensive awareness of what went on at Rocky Flats, and he details some of his contributions as an advocate for public participation in the cleanup process. Much of the conversation centers on access to information as well as the understandability of information. Korkia describes how citizens’ voices and concerns get represented – or ignored – in budget priorities for Rocky Flats.
