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.

Barry Cassidy Presentation Coatesville RDA Meeting May 21, 2012

Barry Cassidy's presentation to City of Coatesville RDA MAY 21, 2012

Above is a recording of Barry's closing statement. (About one minute)

This is a transcription of that closing statement: 
“I see the housing as your problem. I clearly see that you need you need newer housing programs… That is a proven system that works that has training and back up. You could have local people, people from Coatesville learning how to do this from people from St. Louis or people from Philadelphia or people from wherever that have been through the same thing. It's almost like a support group, in a way in terms of technical assistance.”

This is from his handout at the meeting. The entire document is below:
“I believe that Coatesville has a housing problem, which needs to be addressed through a formal program. I would suggest a Neighborhood Housing Services (NHS) style program.  I would recommend that government and foundation grants be secured to hire tenant counselors to create homeownership opportunities. The homeownership effort would work parallel with a home improvement program to enable the current homeowners to improve their residence.”

This is a recording of the entire presentation. It’s 27 minutes:
