Greater City Providence

Be counted

Seriously people, if we don’t all get our forms in, Worcester might get more forms in than us. We can’t let Worcester be the second biggest city in New England, that would be a disaster!*

The Mayor has a lot of other reasons for filling out the form besides being better than Worcester:

If your form is sitting on your counter, unfilled out, fill it out and mail it in. It takes literally 10 minutes, less if you can count fast. Or get your form at City Hall or a community center or call the numbers above.

* Not that there’s anything wrong with Worcester

  • Is it just me, or should those words/the signs be in the local languages, and not in English only?

  • If you can’t figure out which number to call by knowing what people call your language in English you have bigger problems than not knowing to fill out your census.

    I would say that there is plenty wrong with Worcester. It just isn’t a terrible place or anything like that.
