Jessamine County Reviews

1 review
I really do enjoy our small town. The schools that my children attend are filled with forward thinking teachers and there is a lot of activities for kids to join. I however do not like the overwhelming influence of heroin in our city. It has become a major problem and seems to be taking over the streets. I wish to see a clean up in the community as a whole. As a future social worker, I hope to reshape the town I was lucky enough to call home.
