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.

The Redevelopment of Coatesville has begun.
In spite of the Walker Administration’s foot dragging Coatesville is getting a hotel. The earth is moving for the Marriot Hotel land and the Brandywine Riverwalk has begun.
Redeveloping Coatesville will eventually bring a gross reduction of illegal drug sales in Central and Western Chester County.
I believe that we had political resistance to the redevelopment of Coatesville from those who benefited from the drug business here. Political resistance from those on the take from the drug business is fading and the advocates of Coatesville’s redevelopment are beginning to take root.
I don’t know if Mr. Jaramillo’s projects will turn out exactly as proposed but I do think they will be successful. He is at the ground floor of the development of the last large municipality in Chester County that has not had a major redevelopment. And I think Coatesville will soon be the hot spot in development on the RT. 30 corridor.
We are still in the biggest recession since the Great Depression but Chester County and Southeast Pennsylvania did not sink very much into that recession. I think this area will also be one of the first areas in the USA to begin recovering. That recovery may have begun.
Because of its location along the RT 30 corridor between Exton and Lancaster; Coatesville is in the path of development. The transportation options of a major rail line, a business travel airport that will soon have direct international capability an option for a second North to South passenger rail line and short links to interstate highways make Coatesville unique in Chester County.
The Coatesville Police Department has already recovered from the Legree/Matthews days and the streets are safer here.
The new government taking over in January only has to implement the internationally recognized plans and vision for Coatesville set in motion by the Janssen/Krack Administration, Bart Blatstein, Carl Chetty and Don Pulver. And hire a competent City Manager to bring those plans to life.
Once the drag of the drug business stops and the pressure from legal business takes over; Coatesville will be in position to be the business and cultural center of Chester County. Mr. Jaramillo did indeed make a good investment.
Coatesville can be the major international business spot in Chester County. It can be a smaller version of the Manayunk/Conshohocken area with easy access to rail and road transit and office to aircraft 10 minute access to international business jet travel.
