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.

Republican Wild Dogs run loose in the PA House. 3 more yrs. of GOP Wild Dog dung on the PA House floor. UNLESS

It’s 3 more years of cleaning Republican Dog dung from the PA House floor. 

The GOP Wild Dogs will continue to crap on the Statehouse floor indefinitely  unless….

Democrats show up on election day. 

Not only Election Day on November 8, 2016. That election is a guaranteed high turnout, and big win Election for Democrats in Pennsylvania. 

The elections that really count for Pennsylvanians are in 2017, 2018 and 2019 Those elections will decide the makeup of the PA House and PA Senate:

Reapportionment, Redistricting, And Electors 

"The census has a profound impact on the way that our nation chooses its leaders...  

Under Title 13, U.S.C., the Secretary of Commerce is required to submit the state population totals to the President within nine months of Census Day. Title 2, U.S.C. then requires the President to submit the apportionment to the Clerk of the House within five days of the convening of a new Congress.
After the states receive the number of districts allowed per state, it is their responsibility every decade to draw the boundaries of those districts in their states. This process is called “redistricting.” In some states, the legislature is responsible for redistricting, while in others, independent commissions set redistricting plans. 

Both reapportionment and redistricting directly impact the local, state, and national leaders voted to serve in office because of the politics involved in redistricting in each state. For example, many states, led by the majority party, have drawn districts in such a way that opponents to the majority party are sequestered in just a few districts, leading to district maps that are skewed towards one party. In effect this has lowered or even eliminated the competition for seats in the House of Representatives, which has impacted the competition of House seats nationally. This process is called 'gerrymandering”.
