NAPA COUNTY CASH
dedicated to truth and transparency
Once a website dedicated to sharing campaign contributions with the public in order to follow the money, Napa County Cash took a turn when Napa County Supervisor Alfredo Pedroza's land deal was made public, something he never intended for the public to know, which can be found on the Vinedos AP & Alfredo Pedroza page. Through this issue and looking into Alfredo Pedroza's connections, several more subjects have come to light and can be found on the Napa Uncensored page. Although we refrain from personal opinion, in this case we will say that we strongly believe many of the subjects highlighted on this site are interconnected.

One win for Napa County Cash is that the Napa Valley Register has begun taking the issue of campaign contributions more seriously and in October 2022, they reported that the total sum of campaign contributions by all candidates had reached the $1M mark. Should elections for relatively small districts cost this much?
HOW NAPA COUNTY CASH CAME TO BE
We have known for some time that many of our policies are influenced by those who donate the most funds toward political campaigns. This is true throughout the world and Napa is not immune. Craving a more level playing field where our elected serve us in the way intended, we wanted to show the public exactly who has been giving the most funds to our local elected with the hope to encourage more people to understand local politics and maybe even get involved.
Napa County Cash has taken information from the public access portal HERE of Napa County's campaign contributions and has listed them in a format that is easy to read and understand the timelines of donations.
Some individuals may have donated as independent individuals as well as through their business name or names. In these cases we have done our best to research and list these together to reflect the facts. Current rules set forth by the FPPC allow for this, so long as each individual and each business minds the cap of $4,900.
Always, we welcome the public to connect any dots we may have missed. We are a volunteer driven page passionate about democracy. It cannot be stated enough: these are public records and if the dates you seek are not available, it is your right to request them from Napa County.
Finally, a big thank you to our supporters who have donated funds which have contributed to research tool acquisitions, the website and other resources vital to this work. Thank you.
