I am not sure if you know but the 2020 Census is happening right now and the county needs you as ambassadors to spread these three key points. Is your pen or pencil ready? (PAUSE) Ok, let’s go!
The Census is Safe, It’s Easy and It’s Important!
The Census is Safe. The Census is only used to count how many people live in your area so your family and friends can have the best resources for years to come. Can everyone say Safe? Great!
The Census is Easy. One person can complete the census for everyone living in the house and it takes 10 minutes or less to complete. The Census can be completed online, on the phone or by mail. The Census is in many different languages so everyone can complete it! Can everyone say Easy? Awesome!
Lastly, the Census is Important. Information from the Census provides the basis for distributing more than $675 billion dollars, which helps fund schools, hospitals and many other programs that we need especially during this pandemic. Can you say Important? Outstanding!
In 2010, the County lost $363 million dollars and we can’t afford to do that again. To complete the Census online, please head to my2020census.gov or by phone call 844-330-2020. We are currently a 61.5% and our goal is 85%. With your help we can get it and show the world that you are Proud to Be Counted!
