Supporting a friend

Dear Editor:We have known Bert Fingerhut and his amazing wife, Caroline, and daughter Hannah since April 2001 when we moved next door to them. Although we were never privy to Bert’s personal business practices, we can, however, attest to what a tireless advocate for the environment he has been. He is nationally recognized as one of the foremost champions of preserving wild places and a committed steward for the preservation of the Grand Canyon. Numerous local and national charitable organizations received the generous support of Bert and Caroline.Bert has admitted his guilt, taken responsibility for his actions, is paying a large fine and is facing a prison sentence. His criminal actions are inconsistent with the Bert Fingerhut we know as a brilliant, kind, gentle and decent man. We will continue to consider him and his family as friends.Blanca and Cavanaugh O’LearyAspen
