Gov. Jerry Brown reappointed two longtime California Mid-State Fair board members and named a new one, according to recent news releases.

Chris Darway of Arroyo Grande and Dee Lacey of Paso Robles will remain on the board as president and vice president, respectively, said fair CEO Michael Bradley. The board oversees the state’s 16th District Agricultural Association, which operates the fair.

“We’re just thrilled that both Dee and Chris were reappointed,” Bradley said. “They’re great leaders and highly respected.”

Lacey first joined the nine-member board in 2001, and Darway became a member in 2005. The board positions are unpaid and do not require state Senate confirmation, according to the releases.

Joining the board is Krista Sabin of Paso Robles. She is an attorney at Ogden and Fricks LLP in San Luis Obispo.

This year’s fair will be held July 19-30 at the Paso Robles Event Center, 2198 Riverside Ave.
