Dear Colleagues,

CAPS is proud to have one of our own – David Miller, a Department of Toxic Substances Control Senior Environmental Scientist (Specialist) and CAPS Board Member – serving as one of only 13 members on the CalPERS Board of Administration.  This year, David is running for reelection to the Member-At-Large Position A seat, and he needs your help.  We ask that all Unit 10 members please sign and submit a Nomination Petition (capsscientists.org/wp-content/uploads/2021/04/Nomination-Petition-Member-At-Large-Seat-A.pdf) to help David Miller reach the 250 valid CalPERS member signatures that are required to ensure that he appears on the ballot.  Signing a petition is easy and will only take a few minutes. 

Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, CalPERS has adopted emergency regulations allowing non-original signatures on the Nomination Petitions, but is still requiring those signatures to be a copy of your original signature (e-signatures are not accepted).  

To submit your valid Nomination Petition for David Miller, please print the linked form, fill out your full name, provide the last four digits of your Social Security number, give the agency where you are employed or retired from, and sign the form indicating you endorse David’s nomination.  Please return the form to CAPS by scanning and emailing it to or fax it to (916) 442-4182.  CAPS will send forms to CalPERS by the May 13th deadline, so please take the time to fill out and return your form today or as soon as possible. 

Please note that your name and the last four digits of your Social Security number are being sought by CalPERS only for the purpose of verifying your CalPERS membership against their database.

If you have any questions or need help filling out and returning your petition, please reach out to CAPS at or call (916) 441-2629.  CAPS and David thank you in advance for your help.
