Denver Voters Reject Alien Initiative
Voters in Denver, Colorado opted against a commission to track UFOs on election night.
Jeff Peckman's proposal, known as initiative 300, would have set up a commission to monitor aliens and a website to allow members of the public to report UFO sightings.
The proposal asked voters to "adopt an initiated ordinance to require the creation of an extraterrestrial affairs commission to help ensure the health, safety and cultural awareness of Denver residents and visitors in relation to potential encounters or interactions with extraterrestrial intelligent beings or their vehicles?"
Over 80 percent of voters rejected the idea.
Peckman said the U.S. government was tracking alien sightings but refused to make the reports available to the public.
"It's better than what we thought. This was always about engaging the voters and getting them involved. These things can take time," he told the Denver Post.
According to a website that supports initiative 300, "Over 400 government, military, and intelligence community witnesses have testified to their direct, personal, first-hand experience with UFOs, ETs, ET technology, and the cover-up that keeps this information secret."
In 2003, Peckman tried introducing a mass stress-reduction measure to Denver. Voters also rejected this proposal.
