I would like to respond to Ange Crawford's letter in today's Gazette-Times. Thank you, Ange, for finding my mistake. In my quote, I meant and should have said that every community member or every resident needs to be counted. I am sorry I was careless with proofreading the draft of my quote and regret contributing to any understanding that the census counts only citizens. The census counts all community members.
