7th US Congressional District of Colorado - Ed Perlmutter and Rick O'Donnell

Question from Rob Medina - Mr. O'Donnell, in a transportation survey done by the City of Golden you responded that you will "fight for appropriate federal funding and involvement." To some people this could mean you might provide special earmarks for a beltway and circumvent DRCOG and local decision making. If elected would you agree not to circumvent the local decision on the beltway, or would keep earmarks as an option? (334KB)

Question from Rob Medina - Mr. Auburn, you made a promise as commissioner that you would listen to citizen's concerns. Regarding the beltway the Modified Combined Alternative plan was published by CDOT last June. It is highly likely that this document that this the precursor for the Draft EIS. Considering the significance and the availability of this document to you, and you promise to listen to citizens, why have you declined and avoided meeting with CINQ a citizens group that opposes the beltway?(313KB)
