Public Corruption in Chester County, PA

I believe an unlikely mix of alleged drug trafficking related politicos and alleged white nationalist related politicos united to elect the infamous “Bloc of Four” in the abysmal voter turnout election of 2005. During their four year term the drug business was good again and white nationalists used Coatesville as an example on white supremacist websites like “Stormfront”. Strong community organization and support from law enforcement, in particular Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll has begun to turn our community around. The Chester County drug trafficking that I believe centers on Coatesville continues and I believe we still have public officials in place that profit from the drug sales. But the people here are amazing and continue to work against the odds to make Coatesville a good place to live.

Unique Transparency Program Uncovers Problems with Voting Software

There are often questions about ballot counting in Chester County. Recounts are lengthy and tedious but sometimes reverse the election result. A solution like this one from California could help us here:

"Unique Transparency Program Uncovers Problems with Voting Software"

"That program, the Humboldt County Election Transparency Project, was launched by Carolyn Crnich, who has been the county's registrar of voters since 2002. She created the project with help from a dedicated group of volunteers that included former Green Party presidential candidate David Cobb, an employee of the Humboldt County district attorney's office named Tom Pinto, and three citizens, Kevin Collins, a commercial fisherman, and Parke Bostrom and Mitch Trachtenberg, two technology experts who had a strong interest in finding a way to ensure the integrity of elections. They've documented their project on http://humtp.com/ to help educate groups in other states and counties who may want to replicate the project"
