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.

Road Cycling League Coatesville Classic July 4th Weekend

There is an article in today’s Daily Local News about the Coatesville City Council’s discussion of the National Velodrome Group’s offer to least 105 Harmony Street. 

The article is here:

Coatesville likely to lease property to velodrome group

The National Velodrome needs a place to store materials for bike races and the Harmony Street building is a natural site. Where the material for the races is stored is not that significant but the races are.

The Western Chester County Chamber of Commerce has been involved in the Ice Cream Festival in the past. I made a comment at the March 28, 2011 City Council Meeting that a friend who is a Chamber member said the Western Chester County Chamber wants to  have all hands on deck for the 4th of July events. Because, the "Coatesville Classic" bike races are developing into a very big possibly national event.
I think it probably will be a larger event for Coatesville than the Steel Trees was and remember that event had international interest.
Although the events over the 4th of July may involve a large number of spectators the people involved in the race are some of same people that do the Philadelphia Bike race and I think it will go smoothly.

The 12 mile road racing cycling event will involve a number of other
municipalities. It's going to be a very big Fourth of July weekend in
Coatesville. It's still in the planning stages.
