I am pleased to announce that I have joined forces with various non-profit organizations to bring awareness of the Census while hosting numerous Census Day Festivals throughout Osceola County in the coming months. The Census is so important because it happens ONLY ONCE every TEN years, and it helps with funding some of our resources, which include healthcare, education, housing, other services and so much more!
My office will be working closely with County Staff and other agencies to ensure that everyone is counted! Efforts are ramping up in Florida and other states, and my goal is to target an accurate count. I look forward to seeing everyone at my Census events. Make Osceola Count!
