Designated deputy director John Mitchell, the number two person in the incoming management structure at Los Alamos National Laboratory, drew a tough assignment Monday night.
More than 150 retirees filled the hall at the University of New Mexico-Los Alamos, with one primary concern - but not a subject Mitchell could talk much about.
He appeared as a spokesperson for the Los Alamos National Security (LANS) team, to listen to concerns of the retiree community and answer questions about the transition to new management and the future.
"I am here to talk about the best way your interests can be observed, and ours, as time goes on," he said.
