Complete Count Census Committee

Members of the Fort Wayne Complete Count Census Committee met for the first time Oct. 18.

A group of volunteers appointed by Mayor Tom Henry is charged with ensuring the Census 2020 count is as complete and accurate as possible.

The Fort Wayne Complete Count Committee met for the first time Oct. 18; the community leaders represent Fort Wayne's diverse populations, according to a statement from the mayor's office. Black, white, Hispanic and Burmese community members are on the group. They come from a variety of groups including the courts, schools, hospitals, Muslim and Christian faiths and nonprofits, including for the aged. They will partner with federal officials and grass-roots leaders to create strategies for informing all residents about the census, which begins April 1, 2020. Palermo Galindo, the city’s community liaison, is the staff representative on the committee.
