Managers appointed for new census office

CONCORD ó The U.S. Census Bureau has appointed managers for a new 2010 Census office at 280 Executive Park Drive, Suite 160.
The new managers, all area residents, are:
– Phillip Gregory, local census office manager;
– Anthony Blackburn, assistant manager for field operations;
– Seth Brewer, assistant manager for quality assurance;
– Carmen Jorge, assistant manager for administration;
– Cedric Clark, assistant manager for technology.
The Concord office supports 2010 Census operations in six counties: Anson, Cabarrus, Montgomery, Rowan, Stanly and Union.
Five offices opened in 2008 to carry out operations to prepare for the census in the state. They are located in Asheville, Charlotte, Fayetteville, Greenville and Greensboro.
The Concord office is one of 10 new local census offices in North Carolina, bringing the total number to 15.
The managers bring a wealth of experience to the 2010 Census.
Gregory recently retired as the American Cancer Society’s associate vice president for North and South Carolina and regional director. Gregory has served as pastor in the United Methodist Church and as executive director of Union County Community Action.
U.S. Marine Corps veteran Blackburn comes to the Census Bureau from Daniel, Inc., where he trained and supervised production staff and lead operators. Blackburn also worked for NLD Computers as a technician.
Brewer worked most recently with Siemens Business Systems as a quality and operations manager. Brewer, a U.S. Air Force veteran, specialized in desk-side service and IT consulting.
Jorge came to the Census Bureau in December 2008 and was involved in recruiting for address canvassing and payroll administration. Jorge worked in administration for three construction companies in southern California.
Clark joined the Census Bureau in 2008 as an office operations supervisor. Clark served in the U.S. Air Force during Operation Iraqi Freedom.
Census counts are used to determine the number of congressional seats for each state, the shape of legislative and local government districts, and how more than $400 billion in federal funds is distributed annually to communities across the country.
April 1, 2010, is Census Day, the reference day for collecting census information from every household in America.
Census questionnaires will be mailed or delivered in mid-March.
The North Carolina offices will close after census operations end in 2010.
