LUBBOCK, TX (KCBD) - Most of us have received the envelope in the mail asking us to fill out the 2010 Census.
So far about 50 percent of folks in Lubbock County have participated. In Texas, that number is about the same, so for the other 50 percent, of folks that have yet to mail the form in,
Consider this: It took me about one minute to fill this form out and another minute to put it in the mailbox. And that is time very well spent considering what's at stake.
You see our representation in Washington is based on population. And of course our population is measured by how many participate in the census.
Then consider the landmark decisions being made in Congress right now; decisions that will not only affect our lives, but the lives of our children and grandchildren. Then ask yourself if you have the two minutes it takes to fill out and mail this form.
Wednesday is census day. Do your duty to keep our voice in West Texas just as strong as our convictions.
We want to know what you think. Voice your opinion by e-mailing us at firstname.lastname@example.org or write us at:
