I hope that his list includes helping with prisoners who are returning homeless...
ANNE C. MULKERN reporting from WASHINGTON, D.C. - Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper came to town for the U.S. Conference of Mayors, and he brought his wish list for Colorado's congressional delegation.
Hickenlooper met last night with Democratic Sen. Ken Salazar and lunched today in the congressional dining room with Rep. Diana DeGette, a Denver Democrat. ("We just had a salad,'' Hickenlooper said.)
He talked with Democratic Reps. Ed Perlmutter of Golden and John Salazar of Manassa, and will meet soon with Republican Sen. Wayne Allard.
His priority list included water issues, help with the homeless, programs for returning Iraq and Afghanistan veterans, and help with airport upgrades.
"There's a long list,'' Hickenlooper said.
The city is asking for $13 million to fix runways at the airport, and $500,000 to build shelters for the returning veterans at risk for becoming homeless.
