Help Doña Ana County Get a Complete Count
This year, 2020, the government will be conducting the national census, mandated by the Constitution every 10 years. The census uses population to calculate a wide range of funding for everything from roads and fire stations, to Medicaid and school lunches, and New Mexico receives 8 billion dollars for these and many other services.
The census needs to count everyone who resides in the country, regardless of their status. Because of our very rural population and the many unincorporated communities like colonias, New Mexico is a notoriously hard state to count.
KTAL has received a contract from Dona Ana County to produce messages in English and Spanish informing people about the census and how important it is for everyone to participate. Thanks to some excellent volunteers, including Raul Esparza Jr., Marisol Diaz, Shirley Baca and Marty Racine, the first batch of spots will begin airing in February.
KTAL is doing its part to help raise the population count in the state through our messages, which we hope will encourage people to fill out their forms online or mail them in by Census Day, April 1.
Eye on Government Keeps You Informed on the Important Local News
What’s going on in our local Las Cruces and Dona Ana County governments? Get caught up by tuning in to Eye on Government, a one-hour program airing every Friday morning at 8 a.m.
Host Walt Rubel will bring you up-to-date on the week’s news, starting with a review of the top stories of the week from the Las Cruces Sun-News and the Las Cruces Bulletin. Walt then goes into a report on the week's meetings by the Las Cruces City Council and Dona Ana County Commission. He often wraps up the show with an interview with a community leader and expert. Walt has worked in Las Cruces since 2002 and brings nearly 40 years of journalistic experience to this timely and informative program.
Besides Friday mornings, you can also hear Eye on Government rebroadcast on Saturday mornings at 12:00 am and you can hear past episodes on our archive page.
