Dennis Herrera and David Chiu Request Multiple Languages in Next U.S. Census Letter

Wednesday, August 19th, 2009

Since the whole point of the U.S. Census is to count people, wouldn’t it make sense to try to send out letters that people can generally read? Like, how about “Cantonese or Mandarin” (hey, aren’t they the same thing?) writing, for instance?

That’s what San Francisco City Attorney Dennis Herrera, Board of Supervisors President and District 3 Supervisor David Chiu, and Vincent Pan of Chinese for Affirmative Action¬†were asking at City Hall yesterday.
