37. Raymond H. Boone 

Richmond Free Press Editor

A crusading, old-school newsman, Boone mostly eschews the Internet in favor of his bully pulpit, the Richmond Free Press’ weekly print edition. Behind the scenes and in print, editor Boone remains someone who city politicians — and U.S. Senate candidates (such as George Allen) — would be wise not to cross. Boone also has stepped up his criticism of Mayor Dwight Jones (No. 1) in the last year. Most recently, the Free Press has been a key voice in the city jail debate, stepping in to scrutinize the minority record of a contractor selected to build it.
