I live in Jefferson City, Missouri, the state capital, so job availability is a bonus and many people are employed through the state. With that being said, the state tries to balance the budget and unfortunately, most of the job cuts are with the state.

Centertown, Missouri is on the outskirts of Jefferson City. I am just 6 minutes away from any store, restaurant, or shopping that I would want to visit.
