Moore County ranks #1 in Census responses

LOCAL NEWS We’re number one. We’re number one.

In this upside down world we’re all collectively living in right now, we could use a bit of good news. According to Metro Mayor Bonnie Lewis, the Census Bureau informed her on Thursday, that Metro Moore County leads the state of Tennessee in the number of completed 2020 Census responses. More precisely, we’re barely number one. Loundon County in East Tennessee (46.7 percent) and Williamson County (46.5 percent) are right behind us.

So you know what that means, right? You’ve got time on your hands today. Fire up those laptops and head on over to the 2020 Census website and fill yours out. You should have received a postcard or mailer in the past several weeks that offers you step-by-step instructions as well as a personally identifying number.
