MKE Mayor Challenges 2020 Census Results

MKE Mayor Challenges 2020 Census Results

Milwaukee wants a recount. 

Mayor Cavalier Johnson yesterday formally challenged the results of the 2020 Census.  That count showed Milwaukee lost about 16 thousand-people over the last decade.  The smaller headcount means less of everything from representation in Congress to fewer federal dollars.  Johnson says he wants to ‘set the record straight.’  The 2020 Census put Milwaukee’s population at just over 577 thousand people.  Johnson and others say the city’s population is much closer to 594 thousand people.  There’s no word just how long the challenge may take, or when Milwaukee may get a recount.
