We are citizens of Grand Junction who take exception to how our 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 is a partisan political group wearing a chamber of commerce suit.
