Marin Grand Jury Application Deadline Extended

Applications are now being accepted through April 20.

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.
