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.

Two Republican bills in Pennsylvania Legislature would eleminate schools as polling places. Many Chester County Polls are at schools, including 3 polling places in the City of Coatesville.

GOP bill would eliminate Coatesville’s 2nd Ward, Coatesville Ward 4-1 and Coatesville’s 4-2 polling places.  All heavily Democratic polling places. CASH HS, South Brandywine & North Brandywine Elementary. Many other Chesco Polls also on GOP chopping block.

Bills seek to limit schools as Election Day polling locations in Pennsylvania


“The township made national news following the 2008 presidential election, when some voters were forced to wait literally all day in pouring rain in order to vote. Many voters had to leave without casting their votes, disenfranchised by inadequate polling facilities.

Despite numerous warnings before the election that the cramped polling place would cause problems, the County Board of Elections had refused to change the location of the polling place – a tiny community center that could accommodate only two lines of voters, a small number of privacy booths, and a single ballot scanner.  And even after the 2008 fiasco, the Board of Elections rejected a petition to move the polling place to the campus of Lincoln University, where it had previously been located for years.
