Sacramento, November 3, 2019. Lloyd Bell, Brentwood, has been awarded the prestigious statewide Angelo Rolando Service Award by the California Grand Jurors' Association (CGJA). This award is made annually for outstanding service to the association locally and statewide. It was given at CGJA’s annual conference in Sacramento on November 3.

Bell served on the Contra Costa County Grand Jury for two terms: 2010-11 and 2010-12 (the latter as foreperson). He then joined CGJA’s Contra Costa chapter, becoming its president.
