Year in and year out, Mesa County citizens have been the largest supporters of the Museums of Western Colorado (MWC). Thanks to a 1974 ballot initiative, Mesa County voters expressed their desire by a 5 to 1 margin that the county should help fund what is now the Museums of Western Colorado. While a specific amount of money was not designated, for the most part the County Commissioners have honored this vote. Despite the County’s ongoing economic struggles, our current commissioners have been very supportive of the MWC. We are pleased that the Commissioners understand the invaluable role that the Museums of Western Colorado plays in Discovering, Preserving, and Sharing our unique local heritage!
Please send a thank you note to each of our commissioners—Commissioner John Justman, Commissioner Scott McInnis, and Commissioner Rose Pugliese—telling them how much you appreciate their ongoing support of the MWC. While you are at it, let them know what you value most about the Museums.
