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.

Governor Wolf's budget would cut CASD taxes almost by 1/2
A 48% decrease in Coatesville Area School District property taxes. The average decrease in taxes $2,217.
The money comes from a tax on natural gas drillers. Gov. Corbett gave his driller friends and contributors a free ride in Pennsylvania. Pennsylvania is the only state that does not tax drillers.
