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.

Coatesville RDA February 22, 2010 Velodrome-Hotel

Posted by Picasa

John Pawlowski had a question concerning surveyor’s flags at the Marriott Courtyard Coatesville Hotel site.
Rob Barry gave a brief update: “I received an email today from Pulver Group. They are out on site. As you probably noticed there is a job trailer on the site. There will be a second one coming, hopefully on Thursday. The steel is being delivered to the site to begin construction of the hotel project. The concrete subcontractor is scheduled to begin work tomorrow.”
John Pawlowski suggested that: …we contact the Daily Local News and ask that we can have a photographer here as some of that steel is being delivered. This is a monumental thing for Coatesville.” 

Coatesville RDA Executive Director Rob Barry explains the Community and Redevelopment Grant Sub-recipient Agreement for additional studies for the Flats property.
There was a discussion and vote for a cooperation agreement with ArcelorMittal Coatesville for the Brandywine Dam for repair or to get grant money for the removal of the dam. I noted that the dam is a liability for City of Coatesville because “Those low head dams, they kill people on a fairly regular basis.”

RDA Chair Joe DiSciullo:  “Three items related to the Velodrome are being taken off the agenda because there are additional changes and modifications to that agreement being worked on and it was not ready for tonight. So we’re going to extend their option to buy until March and by then we should have something. Our next meeting is March 21st .  Watch the paper we may have a meeting between now and then, hopefully there will be another special meeting called before that and then we’ll proceed with some of the items we had deleted from our agenda.”
