From the Marin Chapter of the California Grand Jurors Association:
Marin County needs you to be a member of the 2014-2015 Civil Grand Jury. What is the Grand Jury? The Grand Jury is a watchdog body of 19 members committed to helping County and City government. This is not a criminal Grand Jury. It is a civil Grand Jury empowered by the judicial system to conduct investigations and submit solutions to a wide range of problems.
What can you gain by serving on the Grand Jury? You will benefit by working collaboratively with a stimulating, thoughtful group of people committed to making government more efficient and accountable. You will investigate areas of concern. You will meet our County leaders. All in all you will make a difference through meaningful public service.
What does it take to be a good juror? Ask yourself these questions. Can you cooperate with others toward a common goal? Are you a good listener? Can you keep secrets? Can you ask thoughtful questions? Can you commit to working 20 hours per week for a year? If you answered “yes” to all of these questions, and you are a U. S. citizen as well as a resident of Marin County for a minimum of one year and are at least 18 years of age, you have what it takes to be a member of the Marin County Civil Grand Jury.
