That's the ticket

Re "O.C. Fair ticket policy under review," May 16

Orange County Fair Chief Executive Becky Bailey-Findley is wrong when she says that appointed board members aren't paid for their service. Clearly, they pay themselves with thousands of dollars in concert tickets that do not belong to them. Have any of the board members paid income taxes on these tickets?

Until board members are elected at the local level -- instead of being appointed by the governor -- it seems that political cronyism will continue to thrive at the Orange County Fair.
