Lt. Governor Bysiewicz to visit city as part of census tour

New London — Lt. Gov. Susan Bysiewicz, leading the state’s census awareness campaign, will visit the city on Wednesday to hold a news conference to speak about the importance of an accurate census count.

The news conference starts at 11 a.m. at the New London Senior Center, at the corner of Mercer and Brainard streets.

“We have so much to lose unless everyone is counted. The distribution of federal funds, grants and support to States and Cities are based on census data. Seniors, children, families, schools, hospitals, business's, non-profit organizations, police and fire, roads and bridges are all impacted,” Mayor Michael Passero said in a statement announcing the event.

The census count starts on March 12.
