I have lived in Washington Court House almost my entire life. I have went through the public school system here and I spent my entire adult life here. I would like for there to be more sit-down restaurants and more things for families to do. Maybe a movie theater, and to bring back the city pool. All we have currently is a bowling alley and the YMCA. I would love to see more community events, street fairs, etc.

I overall enjoy Washington Court House. It is a nice small town and was a good place to grow up. The town has grown in the past few years and has gotten more options for restaurants and shopping. I had a great experience with the Miami Trace School District and enjoyed my time there. However, Court House has recently struggled with the drug epidemic. The people of Court House need to get help, but most cannot afford it. Court House needs some more options to help those in need. Overall, Court House is a great place, but just needs more services.
Community Action is a corrupt organization in Washington Court House. Headed by Bambi Baughn, Jeff Woda paid Bambi cash under the table in order to let The Woda Group in on a Community Action property.
