Jeddo, PA Mayor Clyde Warner Searching for Census

Aired April 6, 2000 - 1:38 p.m. ET

THIS IS A RUSH TRANSCRIPT. THIS COPY MAY NOT BE IN ITS FINAL FORM AND MAY BE UPDATED.

LOU WATERS, CNN ANCHOR: And then there's Jeddo, Pennsylvania, where folks would gladly fill out their census forms if they had any. So far, none of Jeddo's 121 residents has received a questionnaire, short, long or otherwise and they're feeling a little left out. Granted the town is easy to miss, it takes up a total of six acres, roughly 80 miles north of Philadelphia.

The mayor is Clyde Warner and we have got him on the line with us.

Mr. Mayor, feeling a little left out, are you?

MAYOR CLYDE WARNER, JEDDO, PENNSYLVANIA: Little bit.

WATERS: How did it all happen? You're watching TV, you notice the census forms have been sent out, and you didn't get any.

WARNER: Well, some people were asking me about it, and I myself hadn't received one. A lot of the people I talk to and some of my wife's friends hadn't received any and I hadn't realized how widespread it was until a couple of days before the deadline.

WATERS: And so then when you realized how widespread it was, it was up to you to contact the Census Bureau I understand.

WARNER: Yes, I did. I contacted the Census Bureau, and they said they had a few options on what to do about it, but more than likely they would probably send their field reps to our town to go door-to-door.

WATERS: Did they say why you didn't get the form? Were they confused? or is it just something about your town?

WARNER: I don't know if it's a mix up in addresses because one person did get one, but it was sent to the wrong town and had the wrong zip code, so...

WATERS: Oh, my.

WARNER: I don't know if it could be a mixup with the addresses or what happened.

WATERS: So how long did it take you to get through to the Census Bureau? WARNER: I got through rather quick.

WATERS: Really?

WARNER: Yes.

WATERS: So you figure the whole thing has been resolved now?

WARNER: I feel it will be resolved within the near future.

WATERS: Well, we're glad. How many of you are there to be counted there in Jeddo?

WARNER: Well, it's conflicting. You have a report of 121. I have a report of 135. I am not sure. Hopefully, we'll find out this time around.

WATERS: I guess that's what the census is all about, eh?

WARNER: Exactly.

WATERS: OK, Mayor Clyde Warner, Jeddo, Pennsylvania, thanks so much.

WARNER: Thank you.
