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.

Voters “simply want to be affiliated with a party which better represents their values”
A Republican elected official who tries to distance themselves from that “base” is quickly cut off from party support.
The problem is that most Republican voters and most voters of any party do not go along with Rush Limbaugh and Glen Beck. It is a quagmire that the Republican Party is not able to free itself from.
There is a post on the Chester County Democratic Committee’s website titled “The New Chester County Democratic Party”.
There is a prescient statement in that document:
“Fueling that early growth were many voters changing their party registrations from Republican or independent. Republicans claim they will get many of these voters back, but we came to know many of these people through door-to-door calls and at the polls. With few exceptions, we found they simply want to be affiliated with a party which better represents their values.”
Chester County is not exceptional; a switch from Republican to Democratic Party because the voters “simply want to be affiliated with a party which better represents their values” is taking place nationwide.
