REDDING, Calif. - The Shasta Board of Supervisors unanimously voted to censure Supervisor Leonard Moty during a meeting Tuesday morning.

A grand jury recommended that Moty, who is facing a recall effort, be censured in May after he took advantage of his position as a political leader.

Moty used his special access to evacuation zones in order to refuel his generators at his home during the 2018 Carr Fire, according to the grand jury report.

The grand jury found Moty “infringed on the rights of others” by using county resources for his own benefit.

Moty took multiple trips to his neighborhood instead of affected areas.
