A man who once tried to push through a proposal requiring Denver to implement stress-reduction programs has another initiative on the ballot. This one would use grants, gifts and donations to create a commission aimed at helping prepare Denver residents for potential encounters with extraterrestrials.
City Clerk and Recorder Stephanie O'Malley told Jeff Peckman in a letter Monday that he had collected the required 3,974 signatures to get the proposal on the ballot Aug. 10.
In 2003, Peckman pushed a ballot initiative that would have required the city to implement calming methods. Voters rejected it.
