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.

It looks like we are getting an Animal Control Officer in Coatesville.
Coatesville City Council President Ed Simpson, “Our number one goal here is… to protect the citizens of this community. .. With that, we need to give them public safety number one…Police and Fire Department…One of the things we have been talking about is the Animal Control Officer…”
Coatesville City Council Vice President Karl Marking, “Remember last summer when there were kids cutting themselves with chain saws. Beating them (dogs) to death. You can’t get veterinary care for your animals unless you have a license anymore in the State of Pennsylvania. Anytime you see an animal without a license you know it’s not getting shots. It’s not getting shots for rabies. They become a public health hazard…”
Ed Simpson, “Chief Canale, his assessment pointed out the fact that we could bring parking enforcement….”
Ed Simpson, “That’s the bottom line; we have to protect people of this community…With the loose pit bulls walking around… The basic services, we need to get back to the basic services. Mr. Wilkinson’s (Public Works) department has been cut, and cut, and cut and cut year after year. And other parts of the city, they keep getting bigger and bigger and bigger…Our streets are deplorable.
It’s not going to happen anymore. The bottom line is we need to get back to giving the basic services that they need… It seems like we’re a little top heavy, to me…We just need to sit down and say where have we gone wrong.”
Coatesville Police Chief Chief Canale, “It’s true that in my opinion it’s a full time job…There are so many issues dealing with animals and cats… to gain compliance from the residents…you have to actively pursue it… and that’s a full time position.”
Ed Simpson, “I don’t know about you but, it’s something that I am willing to move on fast.
Karl Marking, “Spring is already here.”
