Supervisor Gromack Encourages Residents to Complete and Mail Back 2010 Census Form


(New City, NY) – March is Census Awareness Month and Clarkstown Supervisor Alex Gromack is reminding Clarkstown residents to complete and mail back the 2010 census form.  Today, the U.S. Census Bureau distributed the 2010 Census to more than 130 million people across the nation.      


“The 2010 Census is critically important to the future of Clarkstown,” said Supervisor Gromack.  “The data collected will determine funding for local services and our representation at all levels of government.”


Last year, Supervisor Gromack signed the “2010 Census Partner Proclamation” as part of the Town’s commitment to collaborate with the U.S. Census Bureau to help ensure a full and accurate count in 2010.  The Town also arranged for Census representatives to provide information at a number of events and meetings throughout the town, including senior clubs and civic associations. 


The Census Bureau has estimated that it will take ten minutes to complete the form.  Starting on May 1, 2010 the Census Bureau will dispatch Census Representatives to those households that have not returned their questionnaire by mail.  If you do not receive a questionnaire in the mail please contact the Town Clerk’s Office by calling 639-2010 or stopping by at 10 Maple Avenue, New City. 


Some important facts to know are:

  • Residents’ responses to the 2010 Census form are kept safe and confidential by law and are not shared with any other government agency. 
  • The Census Bureau will not contact you by email and the form cannot be completed online.
  • Census workers are trained to do business outside the door so be wary of people trying to enter your home.
  • Do not give out your social security number or financial information, such as bank account numbers.


“I hope our residents will make every effort to be counted and return their questionnaires,” said Supervisor Gromack.


If residents have questions about the Census questionnaire, please call 1-866-872-6868 or visit
