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.

“South Street Culture”

I had no idea before we moved there but the area around Schwenksville, Skippack, Limerick and other parts of Northwest Montgomery County was settled by some of the people of the “South Street Culture” from Philly long ago. They grow their own.

Up in that area you hear talk about the new homes being built and the newcomers that move in. I think the primary difference between the newcomers and the locals is that the newcomers don’t get high every night. It’s purely an unscientific assessment but I believe that a large chunk of the “establishment” in local government, civic organizations, fire departments and such in that area grows their own marijuana at home, for personal use only.

It might be hard to convince high school kids in the area to not use drugs when they know their granddad smokes a joint when he comes home from his township supervisors meeting.

And everybody that has ever been to the “Philadelphia Folk Festival” on the Pool Farm in Schwenksville knows that unless you carry your own personal air supply it’s impossible to not get high. If the air is calm there is sort of a marijuana smog.

In some places people come home from work and have a beer. In Upper MontCo they have a joint.

I’m not passing judgment on the use of marijuana it’s just that when we talk about legalization let’s keep things real.
