Sulphur Mayor urges residents to return Census forms

The following is a press release from the City of Sulphur:

Mayor Chris Duncan would like to remind the citizens of Sulphur that the deadline for the mail participation process of the 2010 Census is Friday, April 16, 2010.  The Census Bureau has announced that the national Mail Participation Rate is now at 67 percent.

Currently, the Mail Participation Rate for the State of Louisiana is 51% - 60%.

Mayor Duncan encourages those who have not mailed their forms to please do so.  If 2010 Census forms are not mailed by Friday, it is likely that a census taker will visit homes in Sulphur to ensure that we are accurately counted.  If you have not received a 2010 Census Form, please call 1-866-872-6868.

Census data is used to reapportion seats in Congress and assure proper district representation in state and local governments.  An accurate count will help ensure the people in the City of Sulphur are fairly represented in all levels of government.  Mayor Duncan issues a challenge to everyone in Sulphur to take 10 minutes to participate in the census by answering the 10 question census form.  Together, we can create a better tomorrow for ourselves, our family and our community.
