“We are very disappointed the replacement VA medical center in Aurora has been plagued by mismanagement, delays and cost overruns.  Under new leadership, the VA working with the Army Corps of Engineers and KT have put this project on the right path.  We still need to hold those responsible for these problems accountable, but it’s imperative the project keep moving forward for our veterans.”

“It’s very disappointing that at the last minute the Republicans seem to be stalling the effort to give the authority and the money needed to keep this project going. For all of the legitimate and deserved criticism of the VA, Republican Committee Leaders are now taking out their anger on Colorado veterans.”

“This is foolishness.  The project must get finished.  Further delays will only increase the cost of the project.  Time is of the essence.”
