County display at the Capitol gets makeover

Susan Eggman’s legislative aide Christian Burkin let me know today that San Joaquin County’s display in the corridors of the State Capitol has been given a makeover.
Every one of California’s 58 counties touts its resources, attractions and features with their own display in the Capitol corridors, he said.
The project to update the display dates back to late-2013, when Eggman noticed the display was looking a little worn and dated.
The display, managed by San Joaquin County, had not been updated for at least eight years, according to Burkin, and no funding had been allocated for its maintenance.
Eggman’s staff worked with then-San Joaquin County Agriculture Commissioner Scott Hudson to create an advisory committee that included representatives from other elected officials in the county, as well as the SJC Board of Supervisors.
The group came up with some design principles, which were eventually brought to life by the Modesto-based Never Boring Design. the company was one of several that were considered, Burkin said.
The update cost about $7,000, borne by the county, and reflects San Joaquin’s combined urban and rural character. he said. It also incorporates the port, agriculture and the importance of the Delta.
