On Tuesday, Governor Jerry Brown announced two additional appointments to the Orange County Fair Grounds governing board. Brown appointed Democrat Ashleigh Aitken, the lawyer who represented opponents of the 2010 attempted sale of the Orange County Fairgrounds, and Republican Stan Tkaczyk, a retired top executive from Huntington Beach-based Rainbow Disposal.

The Voice of OC reports:

Like other recent Brown appointees Nick Berardino and Gerardo Mouet, both Aitken and Tkaczyk have expressed an interest in public ownership and improving operations and profitability.

The shake-up continues. We hope that additional transparency and accountability follows.
