Harold Moskowite, a former Napa County supervisor who represented two different districts at separate times died Saturday at age 91.
Moskowite represented the 4th supervisorial district including the Berryessa area from 1977 through 1988. He later moved to the city of Napa and represented the 5th District from 2005 through 2008.
“You cannot accomplish beating two popular incumbents without being an incredible workhorse,” state Sen. Bill Dodd, D-Napa, said on Monday. “That’s just what Harold was, he worked very, very hard for the people in Napa County.”
Dodd served on the Board of Supervisors with Moskowite during Moskowite’s final term.
“It was straight talk,” Dodd said. “He would say it like it is. While sometimes that could be frustrating for some, it was refreshing for others.”
Harold Moskowite retired from supervisorial politics in 2008 at age 82.
Moskowite died Saturday morning in his Napa home after a brief illness.
