Who We Are

people

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 invariably recruits and financially backs bad — sometimes even horrifically bad — candidates for office. Moreover, the Grand Junction Area chamber engages in activities that harm our city. It bullies and and offends citizens and engages in activities that stick a finger in the eye of locally-owned businesses.

If you are thinking of joining the Grand Junction Area Chamber, please read this site first.  The chamber’s activities over the last few years have created enough anger among Grand Junction citizens that joining it could actually be detrimental to your business. The very existence of this site is evidence of that.
