Watch: Glenwood City Council candidates answer student questions
The Post Independent, in partnership with a Colorado Mountain College photojournalism class, interviewed the six candidates running for two contested Glenwood Springs City Council seats, up for grabs in the April 2 municipal election.
Led by instructor Joseph Gamble, students researched the current expectations and concerns of local residents, including affordable housing, short-term vacation rentals, construction projects, and the proposed streets sales tax.
All candidates were asked the same questions, and were filmed in their preferred locations over the last several weeks.
