Grand Jury supporters gathering signatures

(Continued)

CLAREMORE —

Once empaneled, a grand jury’s inquiry is not limited to the items or individuals listed in the petition.
Cox said a number of the people signing the petition have shared personal stories of why they are supporting the grand jury.
Petition organizers are working to make sure anyone that wishes to participate has an opportunity. This week petitions will be available for the public at the Rogers County Fair at the Claremore Expo Center.
Additionally, the petition headquarters, located near Atwoods in Claremore, is open from 8 a.m. to 8 p.m. Monday thru Saturday and Sunday from noon to 5 p.m .
Drive-through signing opportunities are hosted weekly with the primary location of J.M. Davis near First Street across from Napa Auto Parts and Carls Jr. in Claremore.
Organizers will host a garage sale Saturday at the petition headquarters to collect donations to offset the cost of fliers, booth rentals, banners and other supplies.
The petition is an effort raised by citizens for citizens and is funded by the citizens of Rogers County, according to Cox.
The group is looking to raise money to keep the drive moving forward.
Anyone interested in donating items for the garage sale can drop them off by 8 p.m. on Friday, according to Cox. Any items not sold will be donated to area charity organizations including the domestic abuse shelter, he said.  
Petition organizers would like to make sure the public understands the effort in Rogers County is separate from a grand jury petition in Owasso.
Officials reported Tuesday the grand jury petition drive in Owasso delivered about 10,000 signatures to the Tulsa County Court Clerk.
