SACRAMENTO, Calif. (AP) — Gov. Jerry Brown is free from jury duty.

   Spokesman Gil Duran says the governor called Alameda County Superior Court for an update Wednesday morning and was told his jury pool was not needed.

   In 1981, during his second term as governor, Brown served as foreman of a Sacramento jury that acquitted a man of malicious mischief.

   Duran says the Democratic governor was working in the San Francisco Bay area Wednesday so he could be close to the courthouse if needed.

  2. Ray says:

    Maybe we should relieve him of his governorship.

    Funny how California elects a man who did nothing for California as a two term governor before, and as a failed mayor of a big city. It is not the politicians you have to blame it is the people who put them in office. I am waiting for California’s economy to boom again and flourish as I was promised, instead it seems to be getting worse. Texas had an economy that was in the toilet now it is booming, ONE MAN CAN MAKE A DIFFERENCE, but it depends on the man. All California is getting now is more stupid meaningless laws and job killing regulations, higher taxes are on the way.

    Can’t do any worse than Schwarzenegger

    He did what any other citizen is expected to do. I am sure as governor that he could have found a reason to excuse himself from jury duty. He did not.

    From where I see it Oakland is much better than it was 40 years ago or even 20 years ago so if one wants to blame him .then give him credit.

    This year he said like it is. The state needs increased revenue and cuts. The State of California will not get full recovery unless we do both cut and increase revenues. Already the revenues to government are below what is sustainable for the services required for a modern society. I have watched governors from Earl Warren. He ranks among the best.

    Nationally we have followed a Pied Piper and are heading for doom. Tea Party policy that gives tax cuts and services to the wealthy and taxes and no services to the middle class will lead us to doom. Business is the biggest recipient government welfare. The tax cutters gave us tax cuts for the wealthy that resulted in no job increase, two wars on credit and the financial meltdown. So quit blaming Jerry Brown and look for some real solutions.
