grasstops

The leaders of a group or community (in contrast to the "grassroots"—the common people). A: "If we really want to enact change in our neighborhood, we need to get the support of the grasstops." B: "Well then, let's go present our proposal at tonight's town meeting." The grasstops have totally ignored our petition—now what should we do?
