“We get one chance every ten years to make sure that our community is accurately counted, but we need everyone to participate so that we receive our fair share of funding for hospitals, schools, roads, and other critical infrastructure,” said Freeholder Carmen Rodriguez. “If you have not yet completed the Census, please make time today to do so. Completing the Census takes just a few minutes, it’s extremely easy, and the information you share is protected and only used for the purpose of counting the population – your information is never shared with other agencies.”
