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:
Dear RPESJC Members,
The RPESJC Board is excited to announce that our monthly luncheons will resume on Thursday, July 8, 2021 from 11:30 - 1:00 at the Italian Athletic Club. The same great food is expected at the previous price of $16 per person. Speakers are currently being lined up, and a $1 donation to Haven of Peace will again be requested in exchange for a raffle ticket to participate in our marble game and drawing for other prizes we may have.
NOTE: Reservations will now be required for monthly luncheons. Do so by calling RPESJC at 209-466-8556 or by email to email@example.com. Your reservation must be received by Monday, July 5th, August 9th for the August luncheon, October 11th for the October 14th luncheon, and November 8th for the November 11th luncheon. Walkups without reservations might not be accommodated. RPESJC must guarantee payment for the number reserved, so please be sure to attend if you make a reservation.
Board members are also working to secure venues and caterers for a picnic and holiday party this year. Save the dates of Thursday, September 9th and Thursday, December 9th for those two events. If we are able to make them work, event registration forms will be included in the August and November issues of Cattails, respectively. We hope to return in 2022 to a full slate of casino and baseball trips and other fun activities that we have always enjoyed.
It has been a difficult year of isolation and loss. As seniors, we are particularly vulnerable to the worst consequences of COVID-19. For our own protection and those still unprotected around us., only fully vaccinated people will be allowed to attend RPESJC functions at this time.
We look forward to seeing you.
Bill Mitchell, President
San Joaquin County (SJC) is beginning the process to redraw the boundaries of the county’s 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 wanted to reach out because we want you to be aware of the redistricting process, timeline and how to get more information. We also want you to understand how members of the community can get involved, including how to submit testimony and even draw their own redistricting map. Here are some resources to learn more and get involved.
Join our outreach workshops.
We invite the public to attend any of the three scheduled Redistrict Advisory Committee (RAC) outreach workshops. Here are the details on how to join each of the workshops:

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 will provide 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.
