Three of five seats on the Napa County Board of Supervisors are up for grabs this year. The results could have major implications in a county known worldwide for its wine industry. The winning candidates will have to tackle controversial issues such as how and where agriculture can expand in the county, how to support the workforce, and how to protect the environment amid demand for housing and commercial development. We’ll talk about the election and Napa’s future.
