The 2010 Census: February 24, 2010

Every 10 years the U.S. aims to pinpoint the changes in our nation’s communities by collecting information that will be used to help us determine how you're represented in Congress and what kinds of government services you find in your community.  This includes infrastructure as well as services such as senior centers, schools, hospitals and job training centers. It is important that residents of the western Wisconsin understand the importance of being counted in these decisions. That is why I encourage you to participate in the 2010 Census.

No matter your age, race, or ethnic group, you have a voice and it deserves to be heard. This year marks one of the shortest census forms in history, asking only 10 questions that require less than 10 minutes to complete.  A few minutes of your time will ensure that your community receives the resources it needs.   

Please keep a look out for your 2010 census form, which should be mailed or delivered to your home this March.
