RPESJC is the Retired Public Employees of San Joaquin County, an all-volunteer non-profit organization originally incorporated in 1999. RPESJC was organized in response to the desires of former employees of San Joaquin County and those on the threshold of retirement to preserve and promote the general welfare of retired employees of San Joaquin County.
The purpose of RPESJC is to:
This message is to provide an update on the San Joaquin County (SJC) redistricting effort. As you may be aware, the County is in the process of redrawing the boundaries of the five supervisorial districts. Redistricting takes place every 10 years after the federal census, when district boundaries for federal, state, and local elected offices are redrawn to reflect new population data and shifting populations. District lines can shape a community’s ability to elect the representative of their choice, so it’s important to get it right. That’s why residents are encouraged to provide input on what kind of boundaries should be drawn to best represent their community.
We are hoping you can continue to share this information with your email lists, so that we can broaden our outreach to all the residents, municipalities, and community groups within San Joaquin County. Here are some resources to learn more and get involved.

Schedule SJC representatives to present to your community group
SJC has a redistricting group who are well-versed about the redistricting process and are available to meet with any community groups to explain how they can participate in the process by drawing proposed lines for their districts. If you would like to arrange for a SJC Redistricting Group Representative to present virtually or in-person to your group, please send an email to firstname.lastname@example.org.
How to participate in redistricting and stay informed
SJC encourages county residents to participate in the process, including drawing their own districting boundaries online and submitting them to the county for consideration. To learn more about the redistricting process and ways to get involved, including a complete schedule of meetings, visit the SJC redistricting website.
In addition to the webpage, SJC is providing information to county residents through an array of channels. To stay up to date with the latest information, we encourage you to sign up for email updates, and follow SJC on Facebook and Twitter. We will also be reaching out to local media, and community-based organizations and partners throughout the process.
As always, you can contact us at email@example.com with any questions about the redistricting process. Thank you for your help in spreading the word about this important process, and we look forward to your participation.

DIGITAL COVID-19 VACCINE RECORD
The California Department of Public Health rolled out the State's vaccine digital verification system in June. Anyone can get access to a digital version of their COVID-19 vaccination card on their smart-phone if they need to show it to a business or other venue. To access your digital vaccine record, go to myvaccinerecord.cdph.ca.gov, where you will enter your first and last name, date of birth, and the email or cell phone number associated with your vaccine record. You will be asked to create a 4-digit PIN. Click on the link and enter your PIN. You will then be able to see the QR code and the same information that appears on your paper vaccine card. The link to the QR code is valid for 24 hours. However, to avoid having to obtain a new QR every time you want to scan it somewhere, screen-shot the information once the digital record is received to have it available on your phone.
Have you received your vaccination yet? If not, here are two websites to help you book yours:
