MINEOLA – It cannot be overstated how important it is to all residents in Nassau County that we are fully counted in next year’s Census. An undercount means less money for our schools, our roads, our law enforcement, and so much more.
That’s why I established Nassau County’s Complete Count Committee, a working group of over 30 non-profit, labor, faith-based and community organizations working together to overcome barriers to achieving a full-count. Nassau County will continue full-steam ahead in our efforts to ensure we are fully counted. We will continue to engage our immigrant communities, and all of our hard-to-count communities, early to educate, assure, and motivate them to be counted.
Long Island residents know that we send more in tax dollars to Albany and Washington D.C. than we get back in funding. We simply cannot afford an undercount. The 2020 Census is our chance to get it right and to ensure we’re getting our fair share for the next ten years.
