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.

  1. Jim - how can we talk about redevelopment or parking issues or fiscal responsibility when every month we have another story about something as terrible as death of another dog? This City needs to work on it's base. Rawlings reminds me of Chief Matthews back in the day. Totally clueless to how to lead and in the end get the same result. When you build your home you emphasize that the base (i.e. basement the flooring the structure) must be sound. For if you don't - then there is no guarantee it will be structurally sound. Same logic here. While I think Chief Canale is a nice guy it's time to bring in Chainsaw Al. To me this is another example of the broken window theory. The reason why this happens is unfortunately the killing of this dog and others (ask Jeff Loprinzi how he was treated on the killing on his dog) is there is no fear that they will be caught in my opinion. The same reasons why cars blare their music, race their motorcycles down main-street, ride mini bikes all through town is because there is no fear that they will be cited, arrested, or pulled over. I don't care if the CPD has 100 officers or 10 it all starts at the top about setting the expectation. You bring a Philly Police Commission Ramsey type in and believe me it wouldn’t happen on their watch.
    Does anyone find it ironic that City Council talked about a public relations person to come in when if they actually hired person who could do the job we wouldn't have this issue. Isn’t that what the City Manager is supposed to do? The reality is that the City is going to have to overpay for someone to come here but once they do they will immediately see the results. At this point hire Barry Cassidy to come in the interim – you get a manager and a RDA Executive Director. Further what does Kirby Hudson actually do to be honest? I can’t tell you other then attend luncheons and write long winded overviews of what he did. So remove the assistant City Manager as well. You can’t tell me Cassidy couldn’t make a difference immediately? Bring a real office mgr in a real HR Mgr in watch how fast things start to get done. Further from a CPD standpoint what about Officer Ollis as an interim Chief. Listen I don’t know check down list on how it works on how it should go, all I know is that he simply gets it and is fully involved in the community. He talks and walks the walk. I don’t see any other CPD out doing clean ups on their own dime or attending City Council meetings. Then go out and advertise the position in the proper why and let him interview. I mean if you can let Jim Lentz do it then why can we not do the same? In the meanwhile changes have to be made immediately.
    In summary simply put - you get what you pay for. Coatesvillians need to demand the Borgota/Revel and instead of the Motel 6 you're paying 2.5 more for. You want change – then start demanding Chainsaw Al and Mike Keenan instead of the Doug Moe’s and you’ll start seeing progress. Furthermore if people don’t like my viewpoints that’s fine – but my question to them is - ok then what’s your idea then? Talk’s cheap.
