Chicago – July 14 , 2020
Stunned response greeted Chicago mayor’s launch of “Census Cowboy.” The cowboy is a man on horseback who will be visiting the 10 communities with the lowest response to the US census to encourage them to take part.
“Giddy up, Chicago. I’m calling on the Census Cowboy to help improve our Census response rates across Chicago,” Mayor Lightfoot was quoted. Lightfoot compared him to the comic book character Batman, a crime fighting vigilante.
