Marin County needs you to be a
member of the 2013-14 Civil Grand Jury.
What is the Grand Jury? It 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.
