New Josephine Co. Fairgrounds Manager

GRANTS PASS, Ore. – Josephine County has hired a temporary fairgrounds manager, following last week’s sudden resignation of Manager Wes Brown.

On Wednesday, commissioners formally approved the hiring of former Fair Board Member Mary Groves to run the fairgrounds until a permanent replacement can be found.

Groves resigned from the fair board before her new appointment. She was hired through a temporary employment agency.
