Clayton Reviews

Clayton is where I was raised at. It doesn't have much, but we make the best of it. A few people talk down on us because we don't have nothing there for real. But we have a lot smart and intelligent people to come from our small town. Brilliant people that could go as far as they want to.

Our town is drying up. There is no industry. Local government officials do not want new industry. Our town consists of 6 Attorney office 2 banks 1 grocery store and 3 gas stations. Compared to the rest of the country we might was well be a 3rd world country.
Crime is now a big issue here.
