  • Boysko Bulletin (4/1/2020)

    Wednesday, April 1, 2020

    We are seeing the best in our community and I am so proud of everyone. Just here in our district, we have residents who are working to get donations of PPE on a large scale.  We are seeing large research companies working with smaller laboratories to increase testing. Neighbors are holding evening porch time to build a sense of togetherness. Teachers are holding “parades” for students - caravanning through neighborhoods in their cars. We are also seeing communities of faith holding vigils for people around the globe. The members of our community care for others and are making a difference. Thank you for being a part of it!

    Many people are stating it clearly and  I agree: we all need to stay home, physically keep our distance from others, and take this very seriously. I am so grateful to our medical professionals, first responders, our grocery store and pharmacy employees and other essential employees who absolutely must keep working. Let’s protect those people by mitigating the risk we as individuals pose to them.

    The U.S. Constitution requires a census every 10 years to count every person living in the United States. Each person who isn’t counted in the 2020 Census could result in their community losing $2,000 in funding per person; that’s $20,000 per uncounted person over a 10 year period.
