Ask the Mayor: Episode 6


In this episode, Mayor Greenlaw is joined by Fredericksburg’s Community Development Planner Susanna Finn to answer questions about completing the census. Plus she highlights some recent events in the city.

Census funding determines distribution for funds in health programs like Medicare and Medicaid, funding for the schools including the lunch program, other social and housing programs like the city’s home repair program through the Community Block Grant and more.

Census statistics are used to determine the number of seats each state holds in the U.S. House of Representatives. They also determine how we draw our ward districts in the city, and they inform how billions of dollars in federal funds will be allocated by state, local and federal lawmakers annually for the next 10 years. It is estimated that every person counted in the Census will bring $20,000 to our community.

Complete your census online at or by calling 1-844-330-2020.
