I was thrilled to receive the little blue postcard calling me to jury duty. In the 35 years I have lived in Pierce County, this was my first summons.
A recent tour of the County-City Building revealed calls to jury duty receive less than a 10 percent positive response. How can a democratic court system function without the support of its citizens?
Justice may be blind, but more Pierce County residents must open their eyes and say yes to this vital civic obligation and privilege.
