Police Union Endorses Sedgley for Napa City Council

Retired Napa firefighter Scott Sedgley, 60, has earned the endorsement of the Napa Police Officers Association, according to an announcement from union president Paul Paniagua.


The Napa Police Officers Association has endorsed the candidacy of Scott Sedgley for a seat on the Napa City Council, according to an announcement (attached) from union president Paul Paniagua.

"The NPOA membership believes that Mr. Sedgley has the experience and knowledge to be an effective council member," Paniagua wrote, citing Sedgley's nine years as a trustee on the Napa Valley Unified School District Board of Education, four years on the city Parks and Recreation Commission and 22 years as a captain with the City of Napa Fire Department.

Sedgley is running in a field that includes newcomers Alex Pader and Alfredo Pedroza and incumbent Jim Krider, whose term expires this year.

The four are vying for two seats, Krider's and that of Mark van Gorder, whose council term is also up at the end of the year and who is challenging Napa County District 2 Supervisor Mark Luce in November.

I've met Scott informally before he ever declared his candidacy. He seems to have a good head of his shoulders and should be a welcome addition to the Napa City Council.

Yes, we met him with a stretcher in the Register newsroom after we had to call 911 one day long ago when an editor was taken ill. I was so confused to see him turn up, because I had just started covering the school board and didn't yet know one of the trustees was also a fire captain.
