Letter to the Editor:
The Wisconsin Supreme Court has designated September as Juror Appreciation Month.
The Lincoln County Circuit Judges, Clerk of Circuit Court and court staff would like to take this opportunity to extend our sincere gratitude and appreciation to past, present and future jurors. Your contributions are greatly appreciated by the Court. Jury service has been a vital aspect of our government for over 200 years. Jury duty, along with voting, is one of the primary means by which citizens participate in the work of our government. We value your time and commitment to our justice system.
In 2014, a total of approximately 1,500 jurors were summoned for jury duty in Lincoln County. In 2015, to date, approximately 1,125 jurors have been summoned to serve.
We would also like to thank the many private companies, government agencies, small businesses, school districts and all those who encourage and support their employees when they are called to jury service. In honoring the excellent service and commitment of citizens who perform jury duty, we hope to reinforce public confidence in the jury system, improve communication with jurors and employers and disseminate an important and positive message about jury service.
Your local courts depend on your service. Thank you for your service!
With sincere gratitude,
Jay R. Tlusty
Lincoln County Circuit Court, Presiding Judge
Cindy L. Kimmons
Lincoln County Clerk of Circuit Court
