Fitzgerald appointed to Complete Count Committee
Gov. Tony Evers on Monday, Feb. 10 announced his appointments to serve on the 2020 Census Complete Count Committee, including District 13 State Senator Scott Fitzgerald.

The committee was created through Executive Order #55 and is tasked with educating Wisconsinites on the importance of completing the 2020 census, developing outreach strategies to reach hard-to-count communities, and identifying and reducing barriers that impede participation in the counting process.

Fitzgerald’s State Senate District includes portions of the Town of Bristol.

“In 2010, Wisconsin had one of the highest census turnouts in the nation and we need to make sure that we are a leader once again,” said Evers. “That said, we’ve got our work cut out for us. It’s estimated that Wisconsin’s hard-to-count population is over 600,000, so the work of this committee cannot be taken lightly. I look forward to working with these dedicated individuals to ensure Wisconsin has an accurate and complete count in the 2020 Census.”...

Ken Notes: With the current national political climate it is going to be very difficult to get an accurate count of our farm labor in the State. To be honest we need to establish federal regulations to deal with this. I would like to see a farm labor adoption program that creates a "legal status" for farm labor.
