There are too many high paying jobs in the county now. Need to cut a few of these jobs and it would be for several common men's jobs. People are hurting for jobs but there is no industry here. Officials don't seem to want new industry as long as they draw their salaries. There are lots of people who need jobs.

The main means of transportation in our town is by car. Buses run only to transport school children. No other means of transportation is available
Businesses have a hard time in our town. There is not enough industry to provide jobs for people so there is not an adequate supply of money to support local businesses.
