Welcome to the Coatesville Dems Blog
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.

Number of Arsons?
When the new administration took over the fire reporting system moved into the hands of the volunteer firemen. There is alleged to be poor recording of fires or in some cases no reporting at all.
It is alleged that in 2007 the reporting was about 60% of actual fire department activity.
I believe the Sunday that Walker, Matthews and Johnson did declare an emergency they only did so under extreme pressure from Governor Rendell.
Last night I asked District Attorney Joe Carroll if he knew that there were 27 fires by August or September of last year; would he or Governor Rendell have demanded that Coatesville declare an emergency? His answer was yes.
I have heard that even with the 15 or so number of arsons the city was acknowledging; the DA, State and ATF repeatedly offered help to the city and that help was refused.
