Late last year, attorney Frederick Schenk – a partner with San Diego-based plaintiffs’ law firm CaseyGerry – was elected by the Board of Directors, 22nd District Agricultural Association (San Diego County Fair Board), to serve as its president. Schenk, a longtime Carmel Valley resident, was previously vice president of the Board of Directors, and now serves as president for two years. He has a long-time association with the San Diego County Fair Board, and had been appointed previously to serve on the board by former Governor Gray Davis, serving from 2002 to 2006, and was also vice president of the board in 2006.
From running for elected office to volunteering on various boards, Carmel Valley’s Ray Ellis spends much of his time looking for ways to give back to the local community and greater region.
A San Diegan since 1987, Ellis ran for the San Diego City Council in 2012. Although incumbent Sherri Lightner was re-elected to the District 1 seat, Ellis has found other ways to serve San Diego.
