What can you say about Gallipolis ohio? Is it a good town to live in? What kind of people live there? Is there jobs? Are young people moving away to find jobs? How involved is the Law Enforcement in the communities? Do people feel safe walking the streets? Do you feel your children are safe to play outside? What are commissioner's doing to attract jobs? Are new business's coming in? Question's like this is what citizen's should be asking and if the right people are in office to represent GALLIPOLIS OHIO?
DO YOU FEEL SAFE AND SECURE??????

1.)No. 2.)Junkies, Welfare lifers, and rednecks. 3.)No there "is" no jobs unless you're related to and/or doing someone that influences hiring. 4.)Uh, I think we have the D.A.R.E. program. 5.)If you turn your pockets out and carry a taser, yes. 6.)See answer to 5. 7.)Hiring their relatives and mistresses 8.)No, unless you count fast food joints, rent-to-own centers, and check cashing establishments.

I left there years ago, The town was a stagnant cesspit even then, The city police at the time harrassing teens, pulling over women just to get their phone numbers,I thought briefly about going back but people I know up there talked me out of it, I hear there is nothing for kids to do there but get in trouble and party.The job situation has been pretty bad since the 80,s and progressively gotten worse from what I gather. Even back then you had to know someone or be sleeping with someone to get a decent job. It is a sad thing it has gotten so bad, Gallipolis is such a pretty town rich in history, I actually miss the river and the friendly people who live on it,

The towns major problem is everyone sitting around moaning about how awful it is. Whenever you actually bring up doing something people either shut up or start coming up with excuses.

Agree with Cokie.No jobs unless you "know" someone.(did you know Kyger Creek changed their policy about relatives!) 50 years and absolutely NO BLOOD RELATION!! Now,without letting us peons know,the policy is changed and guess who gets hired!!COMPANY PEOPLES RELATIVES!! Makes me wanna puke!

Why are you on Topix complaining about your town of choice? If you don't like it, leave. It's that simple. There is an entire world out there just waiting for you. I knew at a young age that there wasn't much opportunity in Gallipolis. I left at the day I turned 18. I moved by myself to an area that offered more than I ever expected. And no, I don't mean Huntington. lol I love visiting, but know that I will never be able to live back in Gallipolis. Maybe after retirement.

i think kids getting in trouble because there is nothing for them to do is an excuse for bad parenting.

Gallipolis is a great place. There are many places way worse off than here. And the jobs are the same everywhere. It's Who you know!... It's not just here!
