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.

Twenty eight people attended a Democratic Meeting at my home on Saturday afternoon, February 28, 2009.

It included the nine Democratic candidates currently running for Coatesville City Council. And Chester County District Attorney Joseph W. Carroll.

There are four positions on the Coatesville City Council up for the Spring Election.

We have a problem, but it is a wonderful and a stunning problem to have. The candidates decided, on their own, to run for office. And there are too many candidates. Those nine Democratic Candidates need to decide among themselves who is going run and who is going to step aside and support those candidates.

Chester County Democratic Committee Chair, Michele Vaughn led the meeting. PA 13th Legislative District Representative Tom Houghton, United Steelworkers Union representative, Dave McLimans; CCDC Secretary, Adam Thomas; Tom McCann, candidate for Chester County Clerk of Courts; Phila Bach, Organizer, Working Families Win and Fern Kaufman were in attendance.

Chester County District Attorney Joe Carroll began our meeting by addressing our gathering.

He stated that from a law enforcement view the Coatesville Administration had to change. Joe believes that Coatesville cannot sustain another four years of the current administration.

Joe said that he would support any candidate Democratic or Republican who he thought would bring about the needed change to get Coatesville back on track.

What I wrote in my previous post "Did tampering with the Coatesville PD present the opportunity for arson in Coatesville?" is my synopsis of part of Joe's presentation on Saturday.
