2020 CENSUS- IMPORTANT TO UNION BEACH - PLEASE FILL OUT YOUR CENSUS INFO - EVERYONE COUNTS!!!

Federal funding for social programs, transportation, public safety, and health insurance are directly tied to the census, as is New Jersey’s representation in congress.

It includes what residents will, and will not, be asked, and assures them that their responses are protected by law. We thank you for sharing this participation. In New Jersey, everyone counts!
MESSAGE FROM MAYOR SMITH
Hello Friends, We are experiencing something in our lives that most of us have never seen before and I am hopeful that we will not see again in our world for a long time to come.
As your Mayor, I am very proud of the residents of our wonderful little town for taking the precautions that are strongly recommended by doctors and scientists along with local, county, state and federal officials to reduce and eventually eliminate the spread of Covid-19. It is important that we all take this virus seriously since none of us are immune. We keep hearing the term “social distancing” and how important that is to keep from spreading this virus. I know how hard it is to keep following that directive, but it is necessary and your continued cooperation is so important in this fight.
