I mostly agree with the Daily Local Editorial:
I think the plan is actually a plan for local builders with connections to some Coatesville City Council members to develop in Coatesville. But I don't know of any local developers that are qualified to do a large construction project.
I understand that some people make ends meet by selling drugs, but I don't support it. I don't agree with people like former Coatesville City Council President Patsy Ray who defended her convicted drug dealer friend in a letter to judge Riley; "I can confirm that (Murray) is a woman of great integrity, (and) is extremely dedicated to her family and neighbors ... I have not seen anything wrong with her behavior," A few of Coatesville's churches allegedly are at least partly supported by money drug dealers put in the collection plates to demonstrate their service to the community. You don't take from the hand of the devil. You especially don't take from the hand of the devil if you are a minister of God.
Now most people in Chester County don’t work in the same community they live in. I think the jobs for Coatesville residents in Coatesville is a red herring. Just like the calls for a supermarket in Coatesville, a small town too small for a supermarket.
