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.

Also understand that if you want “something done” in Chester County Democrats can’t help you. The Republican Party however, has been solidly entrenched Chester County since about 1856. And the political power structure here in Chester County is very slowly changing.
I believe that there is a quiet war going on among Eisenhower Republicans and extremist leaning Republicans in Chester County. Unfortunately I believe that Extremist Republicans now hold a majority in the Chester County Republican Committee.
I believe that in the past certain people have had what I call “protected person” CCRC status that follows them into our court system. Richard Legree Jr. and Clayton Ayers Jr. are in my opinion two examples of that “protected person” syndrome. Mark Ethan McFall may be an extreme example. Mark Ethan McFall former owner of McFall's Towing in Valley was alleged to have Chester County Republican Committee connections and Philly and Delco organized crime connections that extend into Chester County. Some allege that it is the reason that he “got off easy” so many times in the past. I’m not sure but I think that the publicity over the suicide of one of his alleged victims in New Jersey along with his many arrests here may have overwhelmed the “protected person” status of McFall in Chester County Republican circles. Some people have also hinted that McFall may have traded information for special considerations. See:
”Prison for owner of tow-truck business”
Some evidence of that “Quiet War” in Chester County may be the school board elections in the Borough of West Chester.
The involvement of “Chester County ACTION” and Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School (PALCS) may be a manifestation of that “Quiet War”.
Einstein Academy virtual school had its charter revoked for financial mismanagement and failure to provide services. Dr. James Hanak was the CEO of the Einstein Academy. Dr. James Hanak is now the CEO the Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School.
Pennsylvania Leadership Charter School board members and past members include:
John Wingerter Republican committeeperson; Chief Academic Administrator, PALCS
Shannon Royer, former Republican committeeperson and West Chester Borough Council member, candidate for state legislature
Andrew Lehr, Republican candidate for West Chester Borough Council, 2007
Terence Farrell, Chester County commissioner and Republican committeeperson.
