Madison Reviews

I have lived here my whole life and I love it, but we definitely have a drug and poverty problem that the city has done nothing to fix. Our schools are falling apart. No one is able to find a job and a lot of people turn to using/selling drugs in order to make money. I would love to see the town of Madison the way it use to be.
