Long Beach. Mayor Bob Foster and leaders in the Cambodian community will be gathering Wednesday to tell local residents about the importance of standing up and being counted.

The Cambodian Complete Count Committee and the mayor will meet at 11a.m. at Mark Twain Library, 1401 E. Anaheim St., to explain the importance of every resident in the city being count for the 2010 U.S. Census.

Several communities, including Cambodians, have historically been undercounted in the Census. Because government money for programs that help Cambodians are often based in part on the number of residents, city officials want residents to make sure they respond.
