Message from Mayor Tom Barrett and
Common Council President Willie Hines, Jr.
Dear Fellow Milwaukeeans:
The census is on the horizon. April 1, 2010 is Census Day – the deadline for all households to complete and return their census questionnaires. It is very important that every person living in Milwaukee be counted.
The importance of ensuring that every resident is counted has far greater ramifications than just completing an accurate count of the population of the United States. The census is the basis for the allocation of billions of dollars of federal, state and county funds. It also determines the districts of the state legislature and the number of seats that Wisconsin will have in the United States Congress – directly affecting our representation and the state’s voice in our government.
When your census form arrives in March 2010, please fill it out and send it in right away! Also, tell your family, grandparents, aunts, uncles, friends, co-workers and neighbors that they all need to stand up and be counted. Milwaukee’s future is in our hands!
Mayor Barrett and Common Council President Hines
We must all do our part to achieve a complete count in the upcoming census!
“It is time for us all to stand and cheer for the doer, the achiever - the one who recognizes the challenge and does something about it.”
— Vincent Lombardi, Head Coach
Green Bay Packers, (1959-1967)
Milwaukee's Future Is In Our Hands and We Need Your Help!
