Also attending was Aurora police Chief Kirsten Ziman.
She represented the victims of the workplace rampage coming upon a year ago in Aurora.
On Feb. 15 of last year, Gary Martin opened fire at the Henry Pratt Company in Aurora – killing five of his coworkers and injuring five officers.
“I realized the magnitude of the event and who I’m representing,” Ziman said.
Ziman attended the State of the Union speech as a guest of Rep. Bill Foster (D-Illinois).
