GRAND JUNCTION, Colo. (KKCO) -- Grand Junction City Council members vote to withdraw from the Grand Junction Area Chamber of Commerce at the council's meeting Wednesday night.

The motion was made by Councilor Jim Doody and passed in a 4 to 2 vote.

Councilor Bennett Boeschenstein was the first to second the motion and stated the chamber has become too political and one-sided. He questions why they didn't have to file an expenditures report for money spent on campaigns.

Currently the council contributes $6,000 a year in tax-payer money to the chamber.
