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.

Death spiral for the city business/boost for drug dealers

“In the short run, this costs the city some money, and we will probably have to tap into the trust fund,” Councilman Jarrell Brazzle said. “But in the long run, we are to save a lot of money from this.”

OK, I know the officers involved in the "early retirement" are some of the same officers involved in the alleged goofy sex scandal thing. However if you cut back police and lose taxpaying residents it's a death spiral for the city. In the short run and the long run Coatesville will lose property owners that pay taxes. They will be leaving for a safer place to live. It has already started.

What can make a difference in the city budget is the National Velodrome and the Hotel adding to the tax base allowing us to hire more police 

What will make a difference in the city budget as far as hiring police is a big Democratic across the board national win and a renewal of federal assistance to local police. 

The immediate effect of losing police officers again is a boost for the drug selling business and the violent crime that goes with it.

The important stuff, the meaningful stuff for the City of Coatesville is happening at the Redevelopment Authority. I believe the City Council and City staff continue to screw the city with petty crap like firing the Finance Manager because she allegedly found that 2 city council members ran up large unpaid city trash bills. City Council meetings usually consist of scheduling public events and complaining about finances. The Redevelopment Authority is where important stuff happens. 

Summer's coming. If you haven't already done so it's time to consider carrying a firearm in Coatesville.
