Denver voters will have a chance next year to create a seven-member UFO commission that will study visitors from space. A proponent of the idea, Jeff Peckman, succeeded in getting enough signatures to place an initiative on the ballot.
Peckman made the news a year ago when he held a news conference to release images of what he said is an alien peeking through a window at a home in Nebraska.
Denver City Councilman Charlie Brown says a commission would be a waste of time and money. Its estimated cost is $100,000. Peckman claims it will be funded all by gifts and grants.
Meanwhile, he contends a commission will get “The federal government … to come clean on what they know,” to help open secret UFO files.
