63% of District 25 has already participated

WASHINGTON, DC-Today Congressman Mario Diaz-Balart (R-FL) encouraged his constituents to take part in the U.S. Census.   63% of District 25 has already done so. 

“The betterment of our nation and communities depends entirely on your civic engagement and activism, and that is why your participation in the Census is so critical.  By taking 10 minutes to answer 10 questions, you can make a difference in funding and representation for our community.  I encourage you to do your part by mailing back your Census this week so that you and your family can be counted,” said Diaz-Balart.  

The U.S. Census takes place every ten years and determines the amount of federal dollars allocated to the State of Florida and the amount of representation our community receives. The Census is completely confidential and takes 10 minutes to complete 10 questions.  
Diaz-Balart took part in the following activities supporting the Census:

•    Voted in favor of H.Res 1096: A resolution encouraging individuals across the U.S to participate in the Census and designates March as     Census Awareness Month.

•    Participated in Telemundo/NBC’s Hazte Contar! (Be Counted!) PSA awareness campaign.

•    Participated in the Telemundo/NBC’s Hazte Contar! Capitol Hill Forum as a guest panelist.

•    Joined Voto Latino (Latin Vote) in their efforts to promote the importance of the Census in a Capitol Hill awareness event.
