Dan Maes is not a good businessman; he can’t even manage a small campaign staff
Dan Maes' performance during his campaign has shown that he doesn't know much about government, he can't even sell himself, he tells tall tales and embellishes his resume, he doesn't think it's important to pay for parking tickets and doesn't work very hard to comply with campaign finance regulations. Over time, it also has become clear that he doesn't know how to recruit strong staffers or keep them, and his operation is chaotic. Yet, he claims that he has the business experience needed to fix the state's budget and the talent and credibility required to sell new employers to move to Colorado? I don't think so.
