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.

Wild West Whiteland

Something was missed in the Daily Local News article about township buildings. They are township buildings in two rural townships and one in a heavily populated suburban area with residential, commercial, light and heavy industrial development.  West Marlborough is rural.  Pocopson is rural with a twist of Federal, State and County tax supported residents.  There is something about a new public works garage in West Goshen Township. 

If West Whiteland Township tried West Marlborough or Pocopson Township management style the township residents and businesses would have been bulldozed by developers. It would be “Wild West Whiteland” for developers to "shoot up the town" and take anything they want.

West Marlborough Township and Pocopson Township elected officials and township staff basically have nothing to do apart from pot hole filling and so there is no reason for a staff and maybe sometimes no reason besides a social get together to even have a township meeting. No reason for a staff or a township building right now. Things could change if a large landowner in one of those townships decides to sell to an international developer or large regional developer. Maybe they are ready for the onslaught of developer’s lawyers that would descend on their townships. More likely they are not ready.

Pennsylvania’s Municipalities Planning Code was written in part with “assistance” from real estate developers lobbyists, but it does have protections for ordinary citizens.  The Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code is a confusing labyrinth to navigate. Just remember that large developers bring experienced Municipalities Planning Code "navigators" with law degrees. My advice for Pocopson and West Marlborough Township supervisors or for that matter any Pennsylvania municipal officer is to keep current on the Pennsylvania Municipalities Planning Code.
