From the Philadelphia Inquirer:
He is a lawyer of choice for those who want to do business with state government.
He heads three politically powerful agencies, and sits on the board of another.
He has influence over Philadelphia’s port, its Convention Center, and its tourism industry. And he is a major ally and fund-raiser for the Democratic candidate for governor, Dan Onorato, a law school classmate.
But until this summer, John H. Estey may have been the most well-entrenched power player the public had barely heard of.
Now, though, Estey finds himself at the center of several public controversies – most notably the ongoing furor over waste and insider dealing at the Delaware River Port Authority – that together raise the question: Has this partner at Ballard Spahr politically overextended himself?
