Carmel Valley resident named new president of Del Mar Fairgrounds board

By Joe Tash

Frederick Schenk, a San Diego attorney and Carmel Valley resident, was elected president of the board of the 22nd District Agricultural Association, which runs the state-owned Del Mar Fairgrounds, at the board’s meeting on Tuesday, Oct. 8.

Schenk was appointed to the board in 2011 by Gov. Jerry Brown.  He also served a previous term on the 22nd DAA board under former Gov. Gray Davis. He was the board’s vice president until his election as president on Tuesday.

The board elected David Watson, a land-use attorney, as vice president.  Watson was also appointed by Brown in 2011.

Schenk replaces Adam Day as board president.  Day has headed the panel for more than two years, moving up from vice president on the eve of the 2011 San Diego County Fair, when Brown dismissed three fair board members, including then-president Barry Nussbaum.

During Day’s tenure as president, the 22nd DAA worked to mend fences with its neighbors and environmental agencies, settling lawsuits with the cities of Del Mar and Solana Beach and the Sierra Club over its master plan, and reaching an agreement with the California Coastal Commission over alleged coastal act violations.

“You have been a tremendous advocate for this district,” Schenk told Day as the gavel was passed at Tuesday’s meeting.  Day will continue serving as a board member.
