Haslem wants to be Governor. But he doesnít Pay his bills!
Have you noticed the new product cooler structure at the end of the Pilot Oil Company building in Lenoir City? Well Mr. Haslem the owner of Pilot Oil Company has not completely paid for that work.
Last April, I was contacted by a man who stated that he was with the Pilot Oil Company, and asked if I could fabricate some steel and provide on site welding services. So, we agreed on total cost and he asked that I start work as soon as possible.
When I arrived at the job site the
workers were using a Pilot bobcat and dump truck. Also I check and Pilot
Oil Company is a licensed general contractor BC # 56468 in the State of
Each time I was contacted, he would
say he is with Pilot. I had no reason to believe I wasnít working for
Pilot. Not until it was time to get paid. Pilot clams that Mr. Tom Pope
was a contactor. (My cell phone voice mail says something else.) I hired
a lawyer, filed for a lien and took Pilot to court. The other day, Judge
Russell ruled in favor of the Pilot Corporation based on a technicality,
on how the paper work was filed. Keep in mind that Mr. Haslem owns the
Pilot Oil Corporation and is running for governor for the State of
Tennessee. Representatives of Pilot Oil Company have not disputed that
the work was done, and they have no problem with the quality of the work
that was done. All Pilot Oil Company says, is that they are not going
to pay me.
