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.

March 14, 2011 Coatesville City Council Meeting Matt Baker

This recording is from the March 14th Coatesville City Council Meeting:

Matt Baker brought up the issue of the City’s contract with the SPCA.  Chief Canale said that their letter (SPCA) said they are increasing the fees because of the economic troubles that they were going through from $35.00 to $65.00. The Chief has indicated that he is looking into alternatives.
Matt, “Mr. Molina, the last time I was here I brought up a garage that’s basically collapsed on Lumber Street between 4th and 5th. Can we get an update on it?”
Mr. Molina, “That’s under enforcement. Notices have been sent out, I could email you those possible citations issued.”
Matt, “I ran the PA Docket list on the owner of the properties; he’s never been cited on this.”
Mr. Molina, “I’ll check on my staff.”
Matt, “537 Cedar, I also pulled up the records for Mr. and Mrs. McCain and there have been no citations on their property either.”
Mr. Molina, “That’s correct. I can give you an update on that property. We’ve been trying to locate the owner who’s.. we finically realize is in a nursing home. And since we weren’t getting any response since this violation has gone out, I requested Harry Troupe to… conduct an estimate of what it would cost to…secure the property and to remove all the rubbish. In that process, (the contractors) ran into the owner’s daughter and we were able to establish a contact. I requested that (the contractor) continue to conduct his estimate of what would be entailed in the process of sealing and removing the rubbish from the property and requested a meeting with Ms. McCain who subsequently contacted her mother and we the meeting about two weeks ago. And that was the first contact we had with one of the owners. Per our discussion we gave Ms. McCain the mother an opportunity to remove the rubbish and address some of the issues concerning the property. If not we would be taking enforcement action with her up to and including proceeding with sealing and securing the property at that point. I would have to have the interim City Manager and the City Council to review the cost estimate so we can proceed with the work…”
Matt, “1255 East Lincoln Highway, where are we on this? Because the reason I ask that is, it’s time sensitive because I pulled up the docket on that, I looks like William F. Bailey is the gentleman who owns the property. There hasn’t been a citation since June 25th.”
Mr. Molina, “That’s correct, that’s correct as I indicated, we stopped going after Mr. Bailey because he didn’t appear in court and we had felt that warrants would be issued. In the interim I asked Mr. Wagner to issue tickets every other week until the matter’s addressed. The other option is… to proceed with certain actions…
Matt, “I would suggest talking to Judge Hines because the docket clearly says there should be a bench warrant; but yet the case is closed. So it needs to be reopened and then a bench warrant can be issued and the constables can go out and pick him up.”
