Jim Tatum is hanging up the keys to his tractor.
In what he described Friday as a âwin-win situationâ for himself and the Eastern Sierra Tri-County Fairgrounds, Tatum announced he would be vacating his post as fairgrounds CEO at the end of the month to free up critically needed funding.
According to Tatum, he has accepted the position of deputy Public Works director with the County of Inyo.
