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.

Today’s Daily Local article about abolishing paid firefighters

There is an article in today’s Daily Local News concerning the referendum to abolish the paid firefighters in Coatesville proposed by Miss Patsy Ray and Harry Walker.

City council rejects firefighter referendum

I wrote about a proposed referendum to abolish paid firefighters on December 6, 2009:

“Walker wants paid firefighters out…


We are much safer now that the paid firefighters have some control in Coatesville. But I think that there are still many unanswered questions concerning the volunteer officers in Coatesville and the pandemic of arson fires here.

The Philadelphia Inquirer:
"(Coatesville Fire Chief) 'Johnson reported 295 in 2007, while union records show 733. When the union discovered the difference, it complained to city officials, but nothing was done, Poulson said. 'Fire-suppression services are in complete disarray,' Poulson said of Coatesville, adding, 'It's like the perfect storm for an arsonist.". Richard G. Poulson is the attorney for the city's 13 paid part-time firefighters and four full-time firefighters." From "Hiring practices, management of Coatesville Fire Department criticized" -Philadelphia Inquirer
