Congratulations Rick on your new positon--you will be missed at the Alameda County Fair. Thanks for always trying to improve the quality of the entire fair each and every year. Thanks for always recognizing the dedicated service of our United States Military Forces by having a Military Appreciation Day each year. Also for your bold move to go to only one show per night at 7 P.M. which turned out to be a good move for the fair and for the show attendees as well. Again good luck to you up in Sacramento in your new role--looks like I will have to make a trip this summerto the California State Fair to see how you are doing--no doubt that you will introduce good changes there too.

So sorry to see him go. Big shoes to fill. Our 17 day Alameda County Fair has been in top 10 county and STATE fairs in the country numerous times in recent years...first class, clean, good vendors, entertainment, all around.
As a local maybe he can mentor for us.

Sorry to see Rick go. He has had a huge positive impact on the Alameda Country Fair.
I was amazed to read that the 26 Directors on the Alameda County Fair Board. That sounds like a classic case of government run amok. All sorts of efficiencies would result if that number were reduced to 9.
