Napa Investigates Audio Recording of County Staff Meeting

Napa County supervisors say the leaked recording of a county staff meeting has raised legal and ethical concerns and is doing damage to staff morale. Now, they’re calling for a full investigative report into the matter.

The meeting occurred on July 27, one day before then County Executive Officer Minh Tran was released by the board. On the recording, Tran discusses his employment status with the county.

Supervisor Belia Ramos believes whoever recorded the meeting likely violated the law. 

Unfortunately, Supervisor Diane Dillon doesn’t believe the investigation will yield much.

“Frankly, I anticipate there isn't going to be any reportable news," Dillon said. "And that will mean we really do need some policy around it can't happen, hopefully, again.”
