Grand Junction, Colo. (KKCO) – Grand Junction City Council candidates debated the future of arts, culture and heritage on Tuesday night.

Various cultural groups, such as the Grand Junction Symphony, the Western Colorado Botanical Gardens, and the Art Center, put on the candidate forum at the Whitman Education Center.

Members wanted to ask the candidates about the role the council will play in supporting the arts and culture.

"It's interesting to hear how each of them sees the city and the community, supporting the future growth, and I’m glad they had the opportunity to share that with the people that attended," says Peter Booth, Director of the Museum of Western Colorado.

Organizers of the event say that the arts and culture have a big economic impact on the city, and that’s why it's so important to know each candidate's view. The election for City Council is April 2.
