BLACKS ARE AMONG HARDEST GROUP TO CONTACT FOR U.S. CENSUS

The upcoming census in 2020 could result in Illinois losing one congressional seat due to all residents, such as blacks, not being counted. That is what U.S. Census Bureau officials said at an August 5 community meeting in Country Club Hills, which was hosted by U.S. Rep. Robin Kelly, D-2nd, whose district includes many south suburbs. A census office for the south suburbs will open next year in Matteson, according to Kelly.
