Those were the marching orders I got from Troy Henry when I asked him about his claim that he was THE President of United Water.
Ok...I took him up on it.
Henry Consulting is currently being sued by their minority business partner, B3, in a joint venture they partnered in called Infinity Fuels, LLC. Infinity Fuels owns eight Shell gas stations in New Orleans and more in other metropolitan areas such as San Francisco and Detroit.
B3 v Henry Consulting
While there are multiple issues against Henry Consulting, including charges by B3 that Henry violated the terms of their contract by going behind their back and soliciting business in other markets independently of Infinity, the primary concern for voters is that B3 is possibly suggesting that Troy Henry misappropriated Infinity's funds and Infinity clients' funds into his mayoral campaign...up to the amount of $395,000.
Here B3 has filed 6 loans Henry gave his campaign as an exhibit:
As well as his personal financial disclosure for his mayoral run:
The specific charge is leveled here in item 22 of Count One: Breach of Contract and Bad Faith:
I contacted the campaign today and requested that they please respond to me so I could ask them about the lawsuit and allegations. I did not receive a reply. I have been in contact with the campaign since my first post but I have no comments from them on the record.
I would like to ask them about this issue, specifically the following questions:
1. Does Mr. Henry plan on complying with the subpoena and providing the financial transactions which prove that he, personally, provided the campaign funds as opposed to the funds being drawn from Henry Consulting, or from Infinity Feuls?
2. Can Mr. Henry verify the source of the funds...the 6 loans amounting to $380,000?
3. Are his campaign reports accurate and did his treasurer sign his last campaign financing report?
4. The 6th and largest loan, $180,000, was not listed in his original campaign finance report which was released after the loan was made. Why?
Now, on top of these financing issues, Henry's personal financial disclosure which is listed in the lawsuit shows a very curious source of income for Henry Consulting:
Ok...I was lambasted for listing the previous contract with the City, which went unpaid, as proof that Henry Consulting had any contracts with the city. I subsequently posted a correction.
But this is a financial disclosure which clearly states a payment from the City...this is not just a contract. Am I wrong again in concluding that Henry Consulting was paid $9,000 from the City of New Orleans?
Or maybe this was paid without an actual contract?
