LANCASTER – Darren Parker has been appointed to the 50th District Agricultural Association, Antelope Valley Fair Board, Gov. Jerry Brown announced Thursday.

“I am very excited and honored that the governor would appoint me to the fair board,” said Parker. “This is my third appointment, either in the county or in the state, so I am honored by the fact that I am probably one of two people who have been appointed by republicans and democrats.”

The position does not require senate confirmation and there is no compensation, according to Governor Brown’s announcement.

Parker, 51, is also the chairman of the Antelope Valley Human Relations Commission and has been a partner at the Parker Group since 2009. Parker worked at AT&T from 1979 to 2009, serving in multiple positions, including network operations manager.

Parker’s appointment to the AV Fair Board was announced Thursday, but Parker said he was notified of the appointment earlier this week and is looking forward to the challenge.

“I very much look forward to being part of what I hope to be a very diverse group of leaders that will be serving the fair board that reflect the entire community of the Antelope Valley,” Parker said.

    Agreed. This is yet another power grab by Parris and his cronies. It is truly sickening to watch and very disheartening to see how few people seem to even see this happening in front of their own (apparently closed) eyes.

    This is how liberty dies…

    …ALL I HAVE TO SAY IS LOL!!!!!!!!!!!
    WHAT A BUNCH OF FOOLS!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!

      Maybe you should pay more attention before blindly applying quotes on another subject. The comments that you quoted are in relation to a different body, not the one that this person was just appointed to.
