MILFORD (FOX 19)-- Clermont County leaders want you to visit the Eastgate Mall Sat. January 16 to take part in a 2010 Census pep rally.

Leaders believe you should want to be counted because it impacts where federal money goes.

For example, since the last census, federal money has been spent on construction projects along routes 32 and 125.

State rep. Joe uecker (R-OH 66th house district) says that a study shows for every person who doesn't take part in the census their area could lose $2,000 in federal funding.

The census pep rally starts at 2 Saturday.

At the event you can also apply for census jobs in your community.
