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.

“Building One Pennsylvania Public Meeting: Advancing an Agenda for Regional Change”

Update, bus available-below
 “Martin Luther King Jr. writing from Birmingham Jail said, "We live in inescapable networks of mutuality."

Well, we have spent a long time in active disregard for that observation. We have assumed we could be saved by one more shopping mall, one last office park, one less multi-family apartment building.

The jig appears to be up. The nations unmistakable demographic movement toward a non-white majority makes escape from the network impossible except for the very rich and undesirable as it relates to our most cherished ideals.

We're running out of land and natural recourses to run to or to use up.

The gating of our communities has only cost us more. We can no longer afford ourselves. 

We can't do it alone. We have little choice but to do it together and I believe we can."

“There's an old saying that there's not a Republican way to clean the streets or Democratic way to clean the snow and I think the same is true for the kinds of problems that confront our state. 

Pennsylvania has; and this is going to sound harsh,  for too long been a reform backwater.  Too long we have followed too many states and too many communities in making the kinds of fundamental change that will improve the lives of our citizens. 

And so the challenge is, you can do it; do you have the energy, the enthusiasm and the commitment to make the changes that matter?"
