That's the basic message, albeit with a "goddamned" thrown in, from County Commissioner Deborah Kafoury, who called up this afternoon because she's concerned that "some of the folks who are reading your publication" might not be turning in their census forms. Multnomah County's current turnout is 63% in the census.

Mercury readers?! I get it. You've got "bands" to go see. But in January this year, only 31% of 18-24 year olds voted. And they're concerned about 18-29 year olds getting their census forms returned. So, yeah.
