The City Council selection process


Congratulations to Mary Luros, our newest Napa City Council Member.

For those of you that were following this, she went off at 10 to 1 odds.  Far better than where she started 🙂

The Napa City Council spent a beautiful Saturday working hard to pick a new member for the City Council.  It was a good process and they should be commended. While five of their top six choices were wise, considered and expected, the choice of Dorris Gentry as a finalist, particularly over candidates that actually put themselves out there and ran for the seat, specifically Derek Anderson and Jose Hurtado, is a true slap in the face.

What we really learned today is that we have some great newcomers to our political process, Mary Luros certainly, but also people like Elba Gonzalez-Mares and Melissa Patrino.   If anything, it tells us that the future of City of Napa politics is in good hands and that should make us all feel very good!!
