After stating multiple allegations - including mismanagement of funds and poor communication, the families turned towards Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper and encouraged him to take action.
"Governor Hickenlooper, you came and grieved with our families," Tom Teves, the father of victim Alex Teves said. "You pledged 12 times that 'We will remember.' Are you man who's true to his word, or were they just words?"
After the press conference Tuesday morning, Hickenlooper sent out a response via email that read:
"Everyone involved is trying to do the right thing in a very difficult situation. We understand the frustration shared today by victims' families. That's why we have been advocating for them to have a greater voice in the process. We have also actively supported the 7/20 Recovery Committee to improve communication and the ongoing distribution of assistance. Families have received money and other services through the great generosity of others. They will receive more. A meeting is scheduled for Friday between families and the 7/20 Recovery Committee. We will continue to listen and do all we can to help ensure families get the support they need."
