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.

“I will be the first to tell you that I am so mad right now that I am seeing red…” COATESVILLE CITY COUNCIL PRESIDENT ED SIMPSON:

“We had a presentation this evening that confirmed what everyone else was expecting.
That basically we weren’t told about it. For whatever reason, I don’t know if the City knew.
We were told that it was going to be a just what it was, an apartment building.  
Well it’s not an apartment building.
It’s low income housing, more low income housing.
Which we didn’t know about.
Obviously the County knew about it, they gave a Million dollars.
But we didn’t.
And we approved the plan.
We approved everything.
But we didn’t know about it.
And I don’t understand how everybody else around here, the County, the State could give them money.
And we don’t know about it.
It’s unbelievable that they’re going to spend Six-Million-Dollars on a piece of property that appraised as Six hundred thousand dollars.
But it’s going to be another apartment building.
For weeks we have been asking…
You have to meet eligibility requirements to get in there.
The gentleman stood up here and said that we have everyone in there. It didn’t matter what your income was.
Now if you make over fifty five thousand… you can’t get in there.
Why didn’t we know about it?
Did we know that this was going to be low income housing?
Six Million Dollars for a Six hundred thousand dollar property.
and we didn’t know about it.
The County gave them a million dollars the state gave them how much?
And we didn’t know about it.
I don’t understand how we could not know about it.
We’ve had citizen after citizen after citizen come in here for I don’t know how many weeks and ask about it.
And we keep saying, no it’s no it’s going to be the same.
But it’s not, it’s not.
We can’t continue to be embarrassed. I’m sick of it…
We made some changes around here. And we made some promises to the people of this community.
And I can tell you that I am going to sit up here week in and week out and fulfill those promises and obligations that we made to those citizens.”

  1. It was printed in multiple newspapers that Phfa had given money towards the roymar hall reno. The money from phfa is actually federal money from the stimulus package. The rules require phfa to disperse the money( use it or lose it). I had the "privilidge" of walking through roymar just weeks after it was vacated, it was disgusting. Health hazard! So if you are worried about roymar being a dumping ground, stop worrying, it already was!
