2010 Census hits Wrangell

WRANGELL The 2010 Census has finally reached Wrangell. The Census kicked off earlier this year in the tiny Inupiaq town of Noorvik. Since then, it has made its way down the state and eventually it will make its way back to the Lower 48. The Southeast, along with the rest of the state, will be paying close attention. With the population declining over the last decade, the region is on the verge of losing representation in the Alaska Legislature and funding for certain projects. KSTK's Tony Gorman had a chance to talk to Census Bureau Specialist Laverne Lamoureux and local representative Dave Wilson about the importance of the Census and its process.
