Below is one page of the Pat Seller's "Coatesville Recorder". There were six issues of the "Coatesville Recorder" Some issues had six pages. All issues were four color, printed on a laser printer. There were enough printed each issue for every household in Coatesville plus extra issues. I estimated the cost of printing, not including the cost of distribution, to be somewhere between $30,000 and $60,000. Who paid for this? Did taxpayers pay to have them printed at Hennessey's Office?
Hennessey's staff was deeply involved in "Mosaic Partners LLP" scam to put a fake company onto Coatesville's "Flats" brownfield. I believe it was designed to go bankrupt and then sell to Andrew Lehr's, Harry Walker's and Al Baxter's Florida Power and Light to build a gas fired electric power generation station in the center of Coatesville.
Disbarred Attorney Leslie Smallwood of Mosaic Development Partners, LLC allegedly has long time connections to several people in the Coatesville area and possibly to several politically connected to Coatesville through now deceased attorney Michael T Whitlow. Whitlow was her partner in the court action for “knowingly misappropriating clients’ trust funds in the amount of at least $139,500” for which she was disbarred.

Coatesville RDA Joe DiSciullo, “I will say this, as far as the negotiations with the power company; I WAS STUNNED TO FIND OUT THAT THE CITY SOLICITOR AND MR. WALKER HAD BEEN TALKING TO THE POWER COMPANY AND MR. O’DONNEL WAS NOT INVITED TO TAKE PART. THAT WAS EYE OPENING TO ME!”
Allegedly Andrew Lehr blurted out “we can’t do that” when the RDA wanted to proceed with Robert McNeil and Penguin Industries offer to buy the Flats. Lehr allegedly told the RDA in executive session that Walker and he were in serious negotiations with the power plant executives and that revealing it in public would be a breach of confidence.
I believe that those negotiations were blatantly illegal and that Lehr and Walker had no authority to make a deal in secret with RDA property.
Mr. Walker is correct in stating that, "I did not talk to power company officials in my office." The alleged discussions with power companies took place at the "Whip Tavern in Southern Chester County".
The money in a community power generation plant is not from the taxes they would pay. Tax benefits to communities from these power plants are negligible. The real money flows through a public / private power authority that must be formed so that the power company can sell electricity on their competitors lines.
