Gov. Jerry Brown recently appointed two labor leaders and a newspaper owner to serve on the Orange County Fair Board.
Added to the nine-member board, which governs the state-owned fairgrounds in Costa Mesa, are Sandra Cervantes and Robert Ruiz, both of Irvine, and Bao Nguyen of Garden Grove. All are Democrats.
The three replaced Joyce Tucker, Kristina Dodge and Ali Jahangiri. Tucker and Dodge had been on the Fair Board since 2006. Jahangiri started in 2010.
