A representative of the regional U.S. Census Bureau, Terry Campion, Partnership Specialist, will be in Brighton on Saturday, January 9, 2010 at 11 a.m. to speak about the 2010 census and recruit people to work on the census. The general public is invited to attend the meeting which will be at Livingston County Democratic Party headquarters, 10321 E. Grand River, Suite 600, Brighton.
The 2010 census will determine how many representatives Michigan sends to Congress and how funding from the federal government will be allocated to states. It’s vital that every person in Michigan be counted so that the state gets its fair share in these tough economic times.
The 2010 census also offers people a chance for paid employment. Campion will discuss the process of applying for a job with the census.
Campion also will speak about the history of the census, why certain questions are asked on the census forms, steps census officials will take to assure that every person is counted, and ways that the general public can help.
There will be opportunities for questions. Coffee and tea will be served. The office is located in the Fonda Office Center on the north side of Grand River, approximately one-third mile east of U.S. 23. If you have questions, call Donna Anderson at 248-719-0112 or 810-229-4212.
