2020 Census

Each decade the United States government fulfills its constitutional duty to count each and every person living in the country by conducting the Census. The importance of the Census should not be underestimated. The results and accuracy of the Census will decide how and where $700 billion in US federal funding is allocated (including funding for municipalities, schools, and hospitals) and will determine Congressional representation among the states. If you have not already, please complete your Census today.

Completing your Census will help in having where we work and live receive vitally needed funding.

Tuesday, June 23 NYS Primary

New York’s Primary Day is Tuesday, June 23.  This election is important as New York State deals with a growing budget deficit that impacts funding in general and to our facilities where we work.
