Clark County Reviews

I live in the town of Marshall. It is one of the safest feeling areas I have ever lived in and I have moved a lot in my life. Very family oriented. However, there is very little diversity and even less job opportunities. I drive 30 minutes to work and it is the closest location for my career field.
