Find out why Les loved Chris too. Chris Fuselier is an accomplished restaurateur and community leader. During the pandemic, he’s battled with Governor Polis and Mayor Hancock. And Chris is not afraid to rip Donald Trump when necessary. And it is necessary. Les was the same way. Chris describes their political journey together.
Chris discusses MLB’s disastrous lockout and the fate of downtown Denver. The brave leadership of Ukraine President Zelensky, a lawyer, is saluted. Disparaged is Russian President Putin, also a law school grad. Find out why Chris thinks Les would’ve been a great lawyer.
Jessie Shapiro, age 35, is a well-spoken talented son of Les. A successful LA musician and aspiring screenwriter, we get a sampling of Jessie’s songs, and a lot of loving memories of his father Les Shapiro. This interview will make you appreciate Les and contemplate his anti-Trump activism.
