I admit it, I love the political dances going on in Colorado right now.
The Denver Metro Chamber doesn’t take positions on candidate campaigns so I have the luxury of watching the expert political maneuverings in the senate and governor races and enjoying the exchange of political and policy views from both sides of the aisle.
I am also enjoying that I personally have made the decision to not get involved in the campaigns, as the Chamber works closely with elected officials regardless of their political leanings…so no checks from me this year!
When Governor Ritter announced he would not be running for office, I received a flurry of phone calls about whether the mayor would enter the race. It was great to be able to say “I don’t know” and “that’s not my job anymore”.
I wish all the candidates well and hope that the races are about good public policy.
Let the games begin!
