The man behind plans for a huge resort at the confluence of the Colorado and Little Colorado rivers may not be familiar to most Navajos, but he’s well known in his home community of Scottsdale, Ariz.

Lamar Whitmer, 56, of Fulcrum Group and Confluence Partners LLC, is a close advisor to Scottsdale Mayor Jim Lane and a regular at Scottsdale City Council meetings.

He was accused by local newspaper columnist Robert Leger a few years back of using public comment time at the meetings for “over-the-top” attacks against politicians who didn’t share his views.
