Gov. Brown's Delayed Decision on Fairgrounds Has Both Sides Seeing Victory
For those who didn't want to see the Orange County Fairgrounds sold to Facilities Management West and potentially repurposed, it's a positive that the sale has been put off this long. The goal was to get through the Schwarzenegger administration, and it has. But incoming governor Jerry Brown, viewed as sort of the savior of the land, is asking both sides to hold up so he can assess the deal from every angle.
To those who opposed the sale of the land to FMW, holding off the sale until Brown took office was believed to be the goal. It was believed that Brown opposed the sale, and therefore, once Schwazenegger was gone, the sale would be off.
