    Brazoria-County has been home to me for the past 15 years now. I have enjoyed living in this county because I feel safe and welcomed. I would like to see one change within the job opportunity aspect. Brazoria-County is home to many industrial facilities such as Dow Chemical, BASF, SI Group, and many more. I would love to see possible growth for everyone not just those who have family within these companies get hired. Equal employment with a a requisitions to be employed would be a nice change to Brazoria-County.
    Review Brazoria
    Small, tight nit town. I talked to numerous people and they really love where they live and didn't have many negative things to say. We could use more support from the state for roads and town updates but the community itself takes good care of itself and is a very safe place to raise a family.
    The overall experience in Brazoria County is genuinely nice, it is not the Houston lifestyle or fast life style that most want. But, in my opinion it is home, I would do it all over right here again and again. Generally you will hear the phrase "it takes a village to raise a child." What better "village" is there than your home town? Brazoria is perfect to me, and my child. Everyone is friendly with one another and we watch out for one another, something you would not see in a bigger city. I love my home and will continue to stay here to watch it grow as I do with my own family.
