Just saw the best example of how local issues have an international component.
Fairfax County (Virginia) sent out a tweet today encouraging everyone in the country to fill in and return the 2010 census forms along with a link to see the full message.
One line in the attached notice tells the underlining reason all local communities should encourage full participation in the census
It’s important that everyone fills out their census form because our community gets millions of dollars for schools, roads and other programs based on census data.
But that's not what grabbed my attention.
Further down in the notice is a list of telephone numbers the Census Bureau operates for different languages.
- English: 1-866-872-6868
- Chinese: 1-866-935-2010
- Korean: 1-866-955-2010
- Spanish: 1-866-928-2010
