No. G is getting it from their directory, which is based on the ODP. They're ignoring the meta tag for your page, and not using a snippet from the text. They might stop doing that at some point, but for now, forget about correcting it on the Google end of things.
With regard to the lack of an active editor in your ODP category (if I understood you correctly): Why don't you try asking for advice in the WW "Directories" forum (forum17) on how to deal with that. There are meta editors above the category editors.
