Advocating for


30 years of Serving, Supporting, and Helping Napa


My mission is to create conditions that allow you to be successful in Napa by serving, supporting and helping each of us experience fulfilling lives. Our City should work with and for all residents to help each one attain their personal goals. We ALL matter and as such, each of us deserve representation at every level. My life and actions speak loudly to this belief. Government in Napa should fully embrace:

  • Commitment to residents
  • Collaboration with all levels of government
  • Compassion for those that need help


My vision is a community where all people can work and live to become their ‘best self’. Where each individual voice is heard. Each of us matter. Each is unique. Each is important.

Top 20 Reasons to Vote for Doris for Mayor!

#17 Doris will fight against tax increases

Just this week, Napa escaped a proposed new sales tax increase.

You can rest well knowing that Doris has fought against any tax measures that have appeared on ballots since the ’70s & as Mayor, she will continue to fight for your dollars.

“Government needs to learn to live in their lane and cut taxes to the people. California is one of the highest taxed states in the USA. It’s a shame people move out of California daily because of this.”


Doris has always been an advocate for less taxation:

✅ In the 1970s, Doris was an active and ardent supporter of Prop 13, working in Los Angeles helping gather support

✅ She worked with other Napa leaders to help create the “Napa County Taxpayers Association” as a watchdog searching for & exposing hidden taxes

✅ Doris is outspoken against Prop 15, which is the ‘split roll’ attack on Prop 13

✅ Recently Doris met with Senator Dodd’s staff and, alongside NAACP, helped deliver hundreds of signed petitions against Prop 15

✅ Just a few weeks ago, Doris loudly opposed Napa’s recent poll about the proposed sales tax increase. It cost our city $40,000 to find out that citizens aren’t ready for a tax increase.


Why does this matter in a race for Mayor? Doris will make choices that are best for your pocketbook! You can trust her to fight to keep taxes low!


If you stand with Doris in opposing unnecessary tax increases, vote Doris Gentry for Mayor!
