|James Whitney, cat and Shelby Edwards|
I first met Whitney and his partner Shelby Edwards a few years ago, when they experienced several problems with a facade grant for their Hamilton Street property. They did considerable research, enough to rival the investigative reporting at a major newspaper. Their work managed to piss everyone off, including CACLV's Alan Jennings, the CACLV board and Peter Lewnes, their Main Street manager. The research done by Whitney and Edwards, which I chronicled in several stories, exposed more than a bit of self-dealing. They are relentless advocates of good government.
In the story below, you'll see Whitney's inaugural story.
