Lake Berryessa News Endorses Diane Shepp

"From a practical perspective, Pedroza will be hard to beat. He has the endorsements of almost all of the local political and business leaders which some may regard as a negative.

Coalition building was emphasized by both Shepp and Malan - a coalition is probably the only way to beat Pedroza. Practical politics says that perhaps Malan should withdraw from the race and throw her support to a coalition to elect Shepp.

Diane Shepp has much broader experience and vision than Malan, and significantly more time in the trenches than Pedroza. On balance, based on the needs of the Lake Berryessa community, the Lake Berryessa News endorses Diane Shepp for Supervisor."

Shepp Wins NapaVision2050 Endorsement for District 4 Supervisor

PRESS RELEASE January 3, 2016

The Board of Directors of Napa Vision 2050 officially endorsed Diane Shepp for Napa County Supervisor, District 4, at its December meeting.
“Shepp’s platform is consistent with the mission and goals of Napa Vision 2050,” stated Dan Mufson, President Napa Vision 2050, “which is to advocate for responsible planning to insure the sustainability of the finite resources of Napa County”. Napa Vision 2050 coalition was created by community and environmental groups from throughout Napa County, with the goal of combining their resources and experience in support of one another and the environment. Over the past year, we have advocated for more balanced growth at Napa County’s Planning Department, Planning Commission, and Board of Supervisors’ on a number of projects dealing with water availability and quality; air quality, affordable wages, land-use compliance, and traffic congestion.

Mufson continued, “Shepp has the proven leadership skills, experience, knowledge and ability to tackle these and other issues facing Napa County. She gets the job done.”

“I am more than pleased to accept the endorsement of Napa Vision 2050”, Shepp stated. Shepp has lived in rural Napa County for over 30 years and shares the same concerns as Napa City residents and Napa Vision 2050. “I believe it is the job of government to protect the health, welfare and safety of its citizens. As County Supervisor I will protect our agricultural-based economy, our watersheds and open space. I will promote needed investment in infrastructure, livable wages, a robust job market and affordable housing. Together we will preserve and ensure a more vibrant, economically sustainable community and quality of life in Napa County now and for our County’s future”.
