Ten years ago i wrote the following to the Mayor and City Council of Baltimore. Not one person responded. Perhaps they were too busy thinking of the next office for which they were going to run then to help the needy children of Baltimore.
To The Mayor and City Council of Baltimore:
I respectfully request that you consider establishing a Generous Juror Program in Baltimore City. This program will cost the City nothing and will benefit the needy children of the City.
Similar programs have been successful in Calvert, Howard, and Prince Georges County (See Attachment)
I recently was called to Jury Duty in Baltimore City. When I asked if I could donate my Jury Duty Payment back to the City, I was told that this is rarely done in Baltimore City for lack of a Generous Juror Program. I thank you and the needy children of Baltimore City thank you for any consideration you give to this matter.
