We are citizens of Grand Junction who take great exception to the way the Grand Junction, Colorado Area Chamber of Commerce is being run. The Grand Junction Area chamber is not your normal chamber of commerce. Unlike other small-town chambers, the Grand Junction Area Chamber does not exist to help local small businesses. Instead, it acts more like a partisan political group. It lobbies for detrimental policies and recruits and financially backs horrifically bad candidates for office, some of whom are even criminals. Moreover, the Grand Junction chamber engages in activities that harm our city. It bullies citizens and bypasses locally-owned, small businesses to take its own business out of town. How bad does the chamber have to get before its members or board take action to make it better?
