A Fair question to raise
I’ve written before on this blog how important I believe it is to preserve the Orange County Fair for generations to come.
Recently, I met Guy Lemmon, one of the principals of Facilities Management West, a private firm who had the winning bid to purchase the fairgrounds property. Even though the appellate court has struck down the sale, I wrote about my impressions of Lemmon and how I believe he also has the best interest of the fair at heart, and the Daily Pilot, my former newspaper, published it. You can read my op/ed piece here.
I’d love to hear your impressions too. Mine is just one idea. But we need to do something. The state is bankrupt and we can’t just dismiss something as bad because it is a private enterprise.
