RALEIGH -- Chris Bulla of Asheboro has been hired as an agricultural marketing specialist with the N.C. State Fair. She will be in charge of promoting and marketing the James B. Hunt Horse Complex and the three other horse facilities operated by the N.C. Department of Agriculture and Consumer Services.
