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.

Like Kirby Hudson said it’s possible that Coatesville’s $1.5 M train station improvement grant might not there.

Acting Coatesville City Manager Kirby Hudson speaking at the April 11, 2011 Coatesville City Council Meeting, he was answering a question about grants:
“Now one of the things that has not been touched yet was going back to when Congressman Gerlach came and he got, it was a grant. Let me take that back. It was an earmark that was then turned into a grant for the renovation of the train station. That has not been touched yet because the project hasn’t gone.” 
And 2 ½ minutes later:
“Right now what we’re working on right now with the State, hopefully the money will be there; because there are all sorts of cuts going on now. Would be the redevelopment of the Fleetwood Street area and train station.”
I'm guessing that the cash for the train station grant came from rail transportation so:
This is the business side of the $38 Billion Democratic cave in to Republican tantrums, I mean demands:
Here are the rail transit cuts from that document above in Millions:
Railroad Safety Technology Compared to FY10 Enacted -$50 Compared to FY11 Request $0
Rail Line Relocation and Improvement Program Compared to FY10 Enacted-$24 Compared to FY11 Request $10
Amtrak - Capital and Debt Service Grants Compared to FY10 Enacted-$78 -Compared to FY11 Request $128
High Speed Rail Compared to FY10 Enacted-$2,900 Compared to FY11 Request -$1,400
We just have to wait and see if the money is there or if the tea partiers sunk our train station.
To garble a quote from “The Treasure of the Sierra Madre” Republicans don’t need no stinking public transit. They use personal jets and helicopters.
