Napa’s HHS Director to Step Down

Howard Himes, who has served as the Health and Human Services Agency Director for Napa County since 2014, is retiring this summer. Himes will step down on July 13.

“This is not the end of my working career,” Himes said. “It will be just taking another journey in a different way.”

He plans to take a few months off before figuring out his next move. The county will have Chief Probation Officer Mary Butler man ship in the interim until a permanent successor is chosen.
