Hickenlooper Says He’s A ‘No’ On Pinon Canyon Expansion

If residents of Southeastern Colorado don’t support the expansion of the Army’s Pinon Canyon training facility, gubernatorial candidate John Hickenlooper said Saturday he doesn’t support the expansion either, The Pueblo Chieftain reports. “With the way (the expansion) was presented, I’m a ‘No,’ ” the Denver mayor said in an interview before the Pueblo Democratic party’s St. Patrick Day’s fundraiser, held at the Union Depot. “Unless there is a deal embraced by the residents of Southeastern Colorado that they feel is better for their community, it’s hard for me to support it. I don’t think the military is so foolish that they want one part of the community to thrive at the expense of another.”
