We’re excited to support the Best of Lawrence contest this year, and in particular the computer repair category.  Last year, we had some huge concerns about the contest.

The Journal-World recently that Lawrence had the “best tax growth in the state.”  While much of this was due to construction, I’m glad we played a small part in that.

UPDATE:  See our support and the changes for the 2017 voting.  We’re glad the Lawrence Journal World listened to our concerns and revamped the program for 2017.
