BROWNSVILLE – Rio Grande Valley congressmen Filemon Vela and Vicente Gonzalez partnered up to encourage South Texans to complete the Census through a public service announcement, said the press release from Congressman Gonzalez’s office.
Both Gonzalez and Vela encourage TV stations in the South Texas region to run the PSA.
While the national response to the 2020 Census is nearly 61 percent, the majority of counties in South Texas are at 40 percent or less.
The release said an accurate count of the Rio Grande Valley is integral in ensuring South Texas receives the necessary funding to support hospitals, schools and the building of our roads and bridges.
You can complete your census online here or by phone at 844-330-2020 or 844-468-2020 for Spanish.
