A challenge that counts in more ways that one pits the city of Jamestown against Valley City.
Valley City Mayor Dave Carlsrud and members of their local Complete Count Committee (CCC) traveled to Jamestown to issue a challenge to Jamestown and Mayor Dwaine Heinrich.
The competition will pit Jamestown against Valley City to see who can get more residents to respond and get counted for the 2020 U.S. Census beginning March 12th.
The “losing” city’s mayor will have to wear a baseball cap promoting the “winning” city (e.g., “I Love Valley City”) at the next televised city meeting.
The challenge is the first of its kind in North Dakota.
