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.

They’re coming home on Wednesday

Those trees, those steel trees that were left standing after the Twin Towers of the World Trade Center fell.
Those trees, most of those trees, were made here in Coatesville at Lukens Steel Company.
They will be coming from the City of New York Port Authority to the City of Coatesville on 28 flat bed tractor trailers.
The line of trucks carrying those steel trees will be about a mile long.
It's almost like a very long funeral procession. 

As Coatesville City Councilperson Ingrid Jones said: “They’re coming home”

Listen to Ted Reed City Manager of the City of Coatesville:

City of Coatesville City Council President Ed Simpson:

“This Wednesday we have a very historic moment coming to the City of Coatesville. The steel trees that were manufactured by Lukens Steel and were part of the World Trade Center are coming back home.
It’s a moment in history that no one, no US citizen that was around for it will ever forget.
And we should be proud and honored that they felt that it was good to bring it back home. I appreciate the effort and I think we all appreciate the effort that the Greystone Society, what they have gone through to bring it back to the City of Coatesville.
Hopefully we can take the next step. This is only the first step. Our next step will be to work with Greystone to make a monument or shrine to the lives that were sacrificed during that day and remind this that freedom isn’t free. There’s a cost to it.
Hopefully we can take it to the next step to turn this into something very, very positive for the City of Coatesville.
But, it’s going to take help from the whole community.
Wednesday is going to be a historic day; it’s going to be Coatesville’s chance to shine and hopefully we can make it to the next level.”
