The leading representative in the city.
Jebediah Cornfield is the most influential man in the city. He plays the middle ground where other politicians go to extremes, and therefore is usually the deciding factor in hotly contested proposals.
Jebediah invited the party over for a small bruncheon, where he rewarded them with their choice of a number of gifts. Although the party took the gifts, they really didn’t like him and laid out plans to bring him (and his corruption) down.
