With Census deadline approaching local leaders ramp up efforts to collect responses

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Sept. 30 deadline is quickly approaching for the 2020 Census, and because of a lackluster response there are continued efforts in place to encourage more residents across Central Florida to get their responses in as soon as possible.Orange County Mayor Jerry Demings held a news conference Wednesday morning to raise awareness for people to participate in the Census.

He said the county’s self reported rate is now at 63%, but it needs to be higher. He’s been working with pastors and community partners to try and change that.“I just want our community to do the best job that we can do to increase the numbers, and therefore increase the probability that we will get our fair share,” Demings said.
