Secretary of State Wayne Williams told the founders of “Together We Count” that he is committed to their efforts in getting residents to respond to the 2020 census.
The former El Paso County commissioner said he understands how important that information is for local government because a number of funding formulas – for transportation and human services, for example – are based on census data.
“We want people to be citizens when it comes to voting, but we still want an accurate census,” Williams said. “As a commissioner, I was active 10 years ago encouraging people to participate in the census, and I’m happy to do that again.
“We want Colorado counted.”
