With 5 of the 11 advertised “Executive” members at $6000/yr being banks, it makes one wonder how or why the Chamber feels compelled to interfere in City affairs except to have a heavy hand to influence the City Council through election capture. With a mission statement to “represent business and promote a vision of economic growth” there is nothing there that supports the Chamber’s direct interference by soliciting, developing, and supporting candidates except to move the City in the direction a small influentual group desires.. If there is an ounce of truth that the Chamber has been meddling in City elections by loading candidates, the people of this county are putting themselves at risk. Mesa County is being eyed as the next Weld County for oil and gas drilling. If you think the Chamber will put the public first over profits, go to Weld county, breathe their air and drink their water and delude yourself.
