Happy President’s Day! Yes, we are mostly sitting home and watching the snow and the Winter Olympics in Vancouver. Thinking of President’s Day, how would you like for your vote for the next U.S. President count less than the vote of someone in another part of the country? A failure by you and a lot of your neighbors to participate in the U.S. Census and the population used to apportion congressional districts and Electoral College will err against you. Check out this blog post, Why the Census matters to small town entrepreneurs, that describes how participation in the census is important for rural communities like Hickman County, Tennessee.
How do you participate? Complete the survey accurately. For more information, check out the 2010 U.S. Census website.
You can help out even more if you or someone you know wants a job. The U.S. Census is hiring people to help with completing an accurate count. Representatives are using the Hickman County Career Center for local applicant screening. For more information, call 1-866-861-2010.
