Jeni Burns is known in Charleston, W.Va., as the owner of the popular Ms. Groovy's Cafe and Catering Company. She is also an outspoken advocate for clean water and co-founder of the West Virginia Sustainable Business Council.
In an op-ed for the Charleston Gazette about the Clean Water Act, she writes:
"I own a catering company. As a result I have to fill out endless paperwork and I have to open my doors to all kinds of inspectors who are charged with the task of making sure I’m doing everything I’m supposed to do to keep the community safe.
Those inspectors are my second set of eyes. The rules my industry live by make sure that my community stays healthy.
I don’t want to poison anyone. So what if I have to do a little extra paperwork.
