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.

"Property Rights and Responsibility"

Property Rights and Responsibility
 All private property rights are completely dependent on the community. We maintain a right to our land only because we can record a deed at the county courthouse, which is supported by the community. We enforce our property rights through a legal system supported by the community. Our property would be worthless without roads and electric and telephone lines built by the community. We are safe and secure in our homes because of police and fire departments organized by the community.
 Just as the community makes it possible for us to enjoy our property, each community has the right – the obligation, in fact- to ensure private property is used in ways that will benefit the long –term public interest.
 Save Our Land Save Our Towns by Thomas Hylton
 I very highly recommend reading: “Save Our Land Save Our Towns” by Thomas Hylton. It’s in all our Libraries. There is also a videocassette “Saving Pennsylvania, Save our Lands Save our Towns” in our libraries. "Saving Pennsylvania, Save our Lands Save our Towns" was a PBS Television special program. 
Also see:
“Save Our Land, Save Our Towns was founded by Tom Hylton to facilitate change — change in private attitudes, change in public policy. Through education and advocacy, the non-profit champions the use of:
• regional planning 
• growth boundaries 

• traditional town design 
to protect rural areas and encourage the redevelopment of cities and towns that house people of all ages, races and incomes.”

 Also keep in mind that virtually all land use law in the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania  is decided locally by municipalities and school boards. What is left over are State Parks and State Forests and National Parks and Forests; State and Federal roadways and Defense Department Property. That comes to about 4,000 different government organizations deciding all land use in Pennsylvania.
