October 18, 2019 - Fort Wayne Mayor Tom Henry today welcomed members of the Fort Wayne Complete Count Committee to their first meeting. The Committee is a group of volunteers appointed by the Mayor and charged with ensuring the community’s Census 2020 count is as complete and accurate as possible.
Comprised of key community leaders representing Fort Wayne’s diverse populations, the committee will partner with federal officials and grassroots leaders to create strategies for informing all residents about the 2020 census, which begins on April 1, 2020. Members of the committee are listed on the following page. Palermo Galindo, the City’s Community Liaison, is the staff to the committee.
“Getting an accurate census count is critical for the City of Fort Wayne,” said Mayor Tom Henry. “Federal dollars needed to support our residents, schools, roads and more are allocated based on our population as determined by the Census. I urge every resident to complete their Census form so that our community will receive our fair share of federal funding.”
