Peoria Mayor Bob Barrett

There are two reasons I believe Luke Air Force Base is at more risk now than it was during the base selection process for the F-35.

Sequestration and BRAC, which is Base Realignment and Closure.
The Department of Defense (DoD) has announced that it will seek two rounds of base closures, one in 2015 followed by another in 2017. Apparently DoD wanted to do a BRAC last year but that was stymied by Congress, who just happened to be up for reelection.

Ron Sites at the CapitalFCP has enjoyed a relationship with Luke that is so unique, mainly due to the fact that we have been given the opportunity to bring successful prototypical programs to Luke that no other military installations are able to accomplish.
