Will Del Mar Buy The Fairgrounds?

I just listened to your newscast and I am amazed at what I heard. The small City of Del Mar is going to buy and control one of our county's regional treasures. The same city that has to keep its parking meters running on weekends and holidays because it can't balance its budget without them. The same city that blocks access to the public beaches by closing its roads on holidays because its residents don't like the traffic on "their" beaches. If this sale goes through we will eventually lose our fair, our horse races and all the other large events that go on at the fairgrounds. The land maybe located in the City of Del Mar, but it is not the sole property of that city, The fairgrounds are a San Diego County treasure and should not be allowed to be sold to a small group of small minded politicians who only care about their interests. I am also surprised that you took a call from an individual who obviously did not know anything about the way the Fair Board operates and let him speak his piece, but did not take a call from anyone against the sale. If the fairgrounds are to be sold to anyone, it should be put to a vote of the people of San Diego. The people who use the fairgrounds and enjoy the events that are held there. Not some small elite group of politicians.
