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.

Something from the Walker Matthews and Legree Days

 There were other very good reasons for 200 police from Eastern PA to show up unexpectedly at a Coatesville City Council meeting but I believe Richard Legree’s alleged influence in Coatesville’s government and it’s Police Department was the primary reason the police showed up.

I’m just including this in my blog because some people think that Richard Legree was wonderful. They are still around; they still hold public positions of consequence.

Richard Legree was for many years the Chairperson of Area 14 of the Chester County Republican Committee. I believe that in his day Legree had a great deal of influence in the CCRC and also in County Government.

I began to advise people in September of 2005 that Legree wanted control of the Coatesville PD as Chief or a new position that I thought might be called “Director of Public Safety”. The actual position that was allegedly to be created for Richard Legree turned out to be “Deputy Supervisor of Operations”.

Very few people thought there was even a possibility of Richard Legree's involvement in the Coatesville Police Department until Lt. Fitzgerald of the Philadelphia PD made his job interview  with then Coatesville City Manager Harry Walker AND Richard Legree public. After checking up on Richard Legree Fitzgerald said there was no way Legree would be part of his Police Department. I think it is very, very significant that Fitzgerald also said that he wanted control over his Police Department. After that Lt. Fitzgerald was rejected and William Matthews got the job as Coatesville’s Chief of Police.

This is one woman’s opinion and comments on Richard Legree and Legree as a potential leader of the City of Coatesville Police Department.  I recorded it of the air of WCOJ Radio; “The Big Show” with Robert Henson. “That man” the woman refers to is Harry Walker:

Allen Davis of the Chester County Reporter had a very good article about a “contentious” Coatesville City Council meeting on March 26, 2007:

I don’t know what Robert Henson is doing right now. Chester County lost WCOJ and Mr. Henson’s show in 2008. It was a great asset to Chester County. We miss him.

I did find some Podcasts:
