In preparation of the 2020 census, Carolyn Tepe, Partnership Specialist of the United States
Census, provided Council with background and the impact the census has on federal, state, local,
and tribal governments. Ms. Tepe explained the different job opportunities that the 2020 census
has available. She asked that Council assist in providing a training space, advertising, and create
a committee to prompt the community members to respond.

Mr. Hickman asked if it was difficult to fill the positions and Ms. Tepe replied it is a challenge at
times and background checks are performed.

Each year, census results determine how $675 billion in federal and state funds are distributed. That money goes to schools, roads and hospitals, among many other things, based on populations those places and things are serving.

One reason the census is performed is to determine how many congressional seats each state has.Census Day will be April 1, although people will be able to fill out responses through an online tool beginning March 23 into moving into July.

If the question of citizenship is added to the 2020 Census, the numbers will be skewed, Many minorities (documented or not) will understandably be afraid to fill it out. One only has to look at US history during WWI and WWII to understand why.

Dawg, you have given me a thought. I’m retired, could use a little walking money. Might throw my hat in the ring. Say $2000.00 for a six hour day, port to port, plus mileage. I would like the position to ferret out the noncompliant to the 2020 census.
