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.

Chester County won't be able to plop more Section 8 housing into Coatesville like $6M Roymar Hall

The New York Times 
The End of Federally Financed Ghettos 
"The Supreme Court issued an important ruling last month when it reminded state and local governments that the Fair Housing Act of 1968 bars them from spending federal housing money in a manner that perpetuates racial segregation. 
Last week, the Obama administration took an even more important step — one that has already changed the decades-long discussion about how to combat residential segregation. It rewrote the rules under the provision of the act that requires state and local governments to “affirmatively further” housing goals by making real efforts to cope with the cumulative results of the discrimination that confined black Americans to ghettos in the first place. 
For the new rules to be effective, federal officials need to make clear that local governments can lose federal housing aid if they persist in dumping subsidized housing into depressed, racially isolated communities instead of putting more of it in integrated areas that offer better schools and job opportunities. 
The fact that it has taken nearly 50 years since the law’s passage for these common-sense changes to materialize is all the more distressing, given that federally sanctioned housing discrimination has played a central role in racial ghettoization. 
The Fair Housing Act was intended to break down historic patterns of segregation. But it was undercut from the start by federal officials, including presidents who believed that segregation was the natural order of things. With the threat of sanctions almost nonexistent, many state and local governments confined subsidized housing to poor minority neighborhoods and found it quite easy to hide these wrongful practices behind ineffective, vaguely worded rules and loose oversight…. 
The rule is a warning for governments and nonprofit housing developers that have an interest in building as much subsidized housing as quickly as possible and that have been roundly criticized for building too much of it in depressed areas and speciously calling the process “revitalization.” Builders will no longer be able to take the path of least resistance, avoiding better neighborhoods out of fear of not-in-my-backyard crusaders."

The allowance for Section 8 housing is a fixed amount and is the same anywhere in Pennsylvania. 

Coatesville has the lowest real estate values in Chester County and the lowest cost rental housing.  So most Section 8 housing is here. 

Section 8 housing was designed to allow low-income people to be integrated into middle class areas. 

Reagan saw to it that low-income people were segregated into ghettos thus making it much easier for organized crime to prey on poor people to run their narcotics industry.  

In Pennsylvania a qualified family can get a subsidy of $1234.00 for a 3-bedroom apartment. If Reagan didn't cut that in half it would be $2,468 and a low-income family could live in almost any area of Chester County.    

In Chester County I believe there are links between Section 8 housing (HUD), landlords, (some of those landlords non-profit organizations) and the organized crime drug business in Chester County.

Chester County Commissioners, State Rep. Hennessey and HUD proudly spent $6 million refurbishing Roymar Hall, a Section 8 apartment building in Coatesville.

I believe there is an effort to keep real estate values in Coatesville low, to concentrate low income people, especially black low income people in the City of Coatesville and sustain the illegal drug industry in Chester County, PA. 

Mimi Wealer of the CYWA gave a presentation about Roymar Hall.

Chester County is mighty proud of what they’re doing for us here in Coatesville.

Mimi Wealer of the CYWA got Six million dollars to put into rehabilitating a property that’s worth Six hundred thousand dollars.

All of this money was spent without any input from the City of Coatesville City Council or any of its residents. In fact the CYWA and County said that it was rehabbing an apartment building to be rented at market rates.

How nice of the County and the CYWA to surprise all of us in Coatesville and concentrate most of the Counties low income Section 8 housing in here.  

They were surprised and shocked to find that we in Coatesville had some concerns that the CYWA was putting more Section 8 poor County residents into Coatesville, instead of say; Tredyffrin Township.

It is after all, Six Million Dollars worth of Section 8 housing and we know that the lower classes don’t like to mix with the upper classes in say, Tredyffrin Township. The lower classes might even think that’s discrimination if they were mixed in with the upper crust.  And we all know that the County would not discriminate by income or race.

There are a variety of income levels. There are twenty four apartment units. One bedroom is five hundred fifty nine dollars.  The top level 3 bedroom apartment is capped at eight hundred dollars rent.  All of it section 8 housing. It’s County, State and a lot of Federal Stimulus Money.

It’s all government money for the taking. Right?

I am sure that all of the Six Million Dollars is in good hands.
