    pretty alarming that the Clerk’s office’s costs for the retirement contribution is 18.5% of payroll, Plus 1/4 of 1% 0f tax collected . The employees’ portion is 8.5%. Seems high but it is a better retirement than Social Security.

    Kind of a back handed compliment….but she is one of the craziest lawyers in town….so she might get sumten done….but…then she is what she is

    There are many well known and respected SEO agencies across the industry. If you have a great product that somehow never seems to get the attention that it deserves, it may be that by creating a landing page and a campaign to drive traffic to that page is all you require, rather than a full website build and optimisation of every page on the website. Search engines take time to consider your page quality and all the other aspects of your page when you update something.
