I am very pleased to announce that the 2018-2019 Civil Grand Jury was awarded the “Best Grand Jury Report” for its report “Wildfire Preparedness: A New Approach” by the California Grand Jurors’ Association at their Annual Conference last week. A committee, chaired by Pat Randolph, the Foreperson of this jury, submitted the proposal for nomination this summer. The submittal process is a lengthy and arduous task and the committee competed with several other excellent submissions.
The report’s recognition and presentation of the unprecedented danger posed by wildfire and the specific recommendations made, became the foundation for the proposal to form the JPA referendum that was passed by over 70% of Marin County voters.
I have attached the CGJA’s press release below covering the details of the reward.
Please join me in congratulating the 2018-19 Grand Jury for achieving this important award for recognition of their work.
Tom Borden President, MCCGJA
