Adams Responds to Decision to End Census Count Early
CHARLOTTE – Today, Congresswoman Alma Adams (NC-12) released the following statement on the court decision to end the Census count early on October 15:
“North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District, which includes Charlotte, is the most diverse congressional district in the Carolinas – and it’s the district that has the most to lose from a Census undercount,” said Adams. “The Trump Administration’s decision to end the Census early, and the Supreme Court’s acquiescence to that decision, could deprive cities like Charlotte and counties like Mecklenburg of critical federal funding and proportional representation in Congress and in the North Carolina General Assembly. I strongly encourage every Charlotte and Mecklenburg County resident to complete their Census as soon as possible – the current deadline is today.”
Congresswoman Alma Adams represents North Carolina’s 12th Congressional District (Charlotte) and serves as Vice Chair of the House Committee on Agriculture. Additionally, she serves on the House Financial Services Committee and the House Education & Labor Committee, where she serves as Chair of the Workforce Protections Subcommittee.
