Being a citizen of Costa Mesa, the home of the Orange County Fair, it
troubles me why Costa Mesa's county fairgrounds are singled out from
all other county fairs in California. If we're going to sell one,
let's sell them all.
And it makes no sense to move it and have to reinstitute someplace
else and take away our tax revenue. Plus it's a beautiful fairground;
it's a wonderful fair. I just attended it several times and had the
privilege of volunteering at a couple of the booths. It's a hometown
fair. It belongs in Costa Mesa and there are many other sources of
revenue. It's just one more thing to muddy the waters instead of
dealing with the real problem of the tax-revenue sources in
So I hope they will drop this idea right away and move on to more
The fairgrounds should not be sold. What a joke. Now Irvine wants
our fairgrounds. If houses or businesses were built on the fairground
property, who would work or live there with an increasing amount of
air traffic flying over? We should keep our fairgrounds.
