Plans Being Made To Boost Participation In 2020 Federal Census


Strategies are being developed at the local level in Massachusetts and other states to raise awareness and motivate people to respond to the 2020 Federal Census.

Among the local elected officials, municipal planners, and community leaders there is concern about obstacles to getting a correct population count.

WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill spoke with Allison Curtis, a staff member at the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission.  She is a co-coordinator of the Pioneer Valley Complete Count Committee.

The record-setting tenure of Springfield Mayor Domenic Sarno. The 2011 tornado and its recovery that remade the largest city in Western Massachusetts. The fallout from the deadly COVID outbreak at the Holyoke Soldiers Home. Those are just a few of the thousands and thousands of stories WAMC’s Pioneer Valley Bureau Chief Paul Tuthill has covered for WAMC in his nearly 17 years with the station.
