August 1, 2019: Connect NY: Ensuring an accurate Census count

New York State may lose 1 or 2 Congressional district seats after the next round of redistricting. Why should you care? Because every person counted means more federal money for things like housing, Head Start, the school lunch program, college loans and more. Coming up on this special Connect: NY on The Capitol Pressroom, we’ll discuss what the state and the City of Syracuse are doing to “get out the count” with a group of experts.

Jeffery M. Wice, Senior Advisor at NY Counts 2020

Sharon Owens, Deputy Mayor of the City of Syracuse

Nicholas J. Simons, Project Coordinator at the Rockefeller Institute of Government

Fabiola Ortiz Valdez, Manager of Member Engagement in Central New York at the New York Immigration Coalition

Richard Tobe, New York State Director of Special Intergovernmental Projects
