Commissioner Collie Invites All to February Luncheon

02/04/2020

Bernalillo County commissioner Jim Collie would like to invite you to the next Brown Bag Neighborhood Luncheon, on Wednesday, Feb. 19, from noon - 1 p.m., at the McKinley Community Center, 3401 Monroe NE.

The speakers in February will be Bernadette Miera, Special Projects Coordinator-BernCo Community Services Division, Kristina Nelson, Albuquerque/Bernalillo County Complete Count Census Coordinator, and Veronica Arzate de Reyes, New Mexico Partnership Specialist-Dallas Region, U.S. Census Bureau.

The United States Constitution requires that every 10 years the U.S. Census Bureau count every person in the nation. A complete and accurate count of our population is essential because this count is used to distribute billions of dollars in federal funds to Albuquerque and Bernalillo County. The city and county will lose $3,000 per uncounted person per year, which translates to $30,000 for one person over the 10-year census period. The Census count also determines the boundaries and number of representatives allocated to communities in the House of Representatives, the state legislature, and a number of other elected bodies.

Bernalillo County and the City of Albuquerque are committed on ensuring a complete count of people of all ages who live in the city or county in the upcoming federal Census. Bernadette, Kristina and Veronica will discuss the plans and programs that will be used for obtaining an accurate count, how you or your organization can help with the count and, if you are interested, how to apply for the temporary jobs that will be available with the Census.

Bernadette will also give an update on the progress of the Tiny Home Village planned for SE Albuquerque.

This is a Brown Bag lunch. You bring a sandwich and we will provide the beverages. An RSVP to jhartley@bernco.gov is appreciated but not required.
