Dirty local money

For those who don’t know, the Chabad of Aspen Jewish center on Main Street was funded by Roman Abramovich, a Russian oligarch who is good friends with Vladimir Putin and helped get him into power back in the ‘90s. He also owns millions of dollars worth of property in Pitkin County. Taking money from this billionaire who has blood on his hands is disgraceful.
