During our fourth JoCo on the Go podcast episode, we’re discussing the upcoming 2020 Census. This episode includes a conversation with Deputy Regional Director of the 2020 Census, Dennis Johnson who discusses why the Census is done and how to ensure you’re working with a real Census worker. Providing Johnson County-specific details are Karen Wulfkuhle and Chris Schneweis who lead the committee that is tasked with coordinating county efforts, in partnership with the region, to encourage participation in the Census. They discuss why Census participation is key to ensuring adequate federal funding makes its way to programs and services that impact you. They also provide important information about the ways you can be counted. Look for more information about Johnson County’s Count Me in JoCo educational and outreach campaign at www.countmeinjoco.org.
