Complete Count Committee

Response collection for the 2020 Census concluded on October 16, 2020. On behalf of the Cuyahoga County Complete Count Committee and Co-Chairs Executive Armond Budish and Jerry Sue Thornton, we thank you for completing your census and for your continuous efforts to get Cuyahoga County residents counted.

On behalf of the Cuyahoga County Complete Count Committee Co-Chairs Executive Armond Budish and Jerry Sue Thornton, we thank the Subcommittee Chairs for their never-ending dedication to educating residents about the importance of the census getting residents counted.

Cuyahoga County established a 2020 Census Complete Count Committee (CCC) to ensure an accurate count in the 2020 Census. A CCC is made up of a broad spectrum of government and community leaders from education, business, non-profits and other community organizations. Our CCC subcommittee members are trusted voices in their respective communities and industries. Members will develop and implement a 2020 Census awareness campaign to encourage residents to respond to the 2020 Census.
