Each video to focus on a different hard-to-reach community for Census 2020
Census 2020 is coming, and Westchester County Executive George Latimer kicked off the County’s 2020 Census Campaign to ensure that every Westchester County resident is counted. Latimer was joined by local municipalities who have their own Census Complete Count Committees, Census advocates, community-based organizations, college students and more at Pace University, to stress the importance of a full and complete count for the 2020 Census.
Included in the County’s efforts to promote the Census is a robust public awareness campaign in both English and in Spanish, which includes a series of public service announcements (PSA’s), each one focused on a different target audience for the Census. The sixth PSA focuses on how the Census impacts our business community.
The sixth PSA features Executive Director of the Westchester County Office of Economic Development Bridget Gibbons, President of the Westchester County Association Michael Romita, Advocacy and Community Liaison Shari Rosen Ascher and President of the Business Council of Westchester Dr. Marsha Gordon. Much of what helps our local businesses thrive are the kinds of services Census funding can provide, such as infrastructure, affordable housing and educational programs. We can’t have economic opportunity for all Westchester County residents unless we know who is here, so everyone needs to be counted in the 2020 Census.
