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.

Today doesn’t look like the day before a presidential primary election.
In a 25 minute drive around the City of Coatesville area I found only 2 Republican political signs on a prominent Republican supporters lawn in South Coatesville.
Our Coatesville Democratic Committee Chair Khadijah (Jackie) Alamin had a series of political signs on her and her neighbors lawn in Coatesville.
That was it.
Maybe Bernie Sanders won’t win at the Democratic Convention but one thing is clear. Bernie Sanders has energized the Democratic Base like no one since Franklin D. Roosevelt.
Still even on the Democratic side, at least in Coatesville, there seems to be not much energy in this election compared to say 2008.
However not much energy is a gross understatement for the Republican Side.
The Republicans are feeling Donald Trump’s burn. But not the good kind of burn. The RNC is desperately trying to put out the fire Donald Trump started before the GOP is a total loss.
Scott Walker was the Koch Network's pick for president.
In this video from 2012 you can hear various Chester County Republicans saying what a wonderful man Scott Walker, Governor of Wisconsin is:

Now it seems the Koch brothers prefer Hillary Clinton to Donald Trump.
