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.

Harry Walker was there in Newburgh, NY

I think the worst, I hope the worst is behind us in Coatesville. Things don't seem to be so good  in the City that employed Harry Walker before he came to Coatesville. 

“The city put its hope last year in Lester Spellman, a music marketing guru from the Philadelphia area, for the first eight months of the year. Then officials fired him, claiming he failed to meet expectations. But it came months after Spellman admitted making an unauthorized $380,000 wire transfer to the embattled Savoy nightclub.
Spellman's ouster paved the way for his replacement, Harry Walker, a man whom the city was already paying $50,000 for a strategic plan for economic development. Two weeks after he got the job, Walker was fired, but the city continues to pay his tab for the consultant work.
The flip-flopping did nothing to advance Newburgh's growth, the city's political minority agree. At the end of the year when all the shouting was done, the city was left with one completed project – a fast food restaurant on Broadway.”
