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.

City of Coatesville Authorities, Board, Commissions, and Committees

 It’s that time again when people for Authorities, Board, Commissions, and Committees in the City of Coatesville’s government are being considered. 

In the past with the fights over "Saving our Farm" and some politically inclined people that I think represented the drug dealer community made it physically dangerous for some people to be part of a City of Coatesville, Authority, Board, Commission or Committee. See:


I think, I hope, that the influence of the drug business among Chester County public officials as it pertains to Coatesville is waning. And when the economic development of our long put off revitalization of Coatesville finally begins it will be much harder for street dealers to operate in Coatesville. I think that the "drug community" will do it's damnedest to put people on Coatesville Authorities, Boards, Commissions and Committees in an effort to stop economic development but I think the "drug community" does not have the clout it once had in Chester County politics. And most importantly I think that ordinary non-drug dealer connected people can serve their community without much worry about threats. 

If any person serving Coatesville on an Authority, Board, Commission, or Committee feels threatened call Tom Hogan at the Chester County District Attorney's office right away. Let him decide what to do about it. 

In 2010 former Coatesville City Councilman Karl Marking (wish he was still there) put a thorough accounting of the Authorities, Boards, Commissions, and Committees detailing total number of seats/alternates, term lengths, residency requirements. Most but not all positions require residency within the City of Coatesville. This document is useful for term limits and requirements but it is not up to date.

As to who is currently serving and what positions are open refer to the City of Coatesville website and look through the individual Authorities, Boards, Commissions and Committees. There are a considerable number of vacancies.
