Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 4th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government. Derek is passionate about access to public lands, Rural Utah and State's Rights.

It may feel like the world is closed in our current daily lives but the cogs of local government continue to turn. We will look at some of the numbers for the economy, what help is available and look at how Tooele County is coordinating with their business community; to not only survive the economic impacts of the COVID-19 pandemic but ways to innovate how business gets done.

ABOUT THE COUNTY SEAT: The County Seat is a public affairs program about the functions and issues of county elected officials and county government in UTAH. The County Seat is designed to provide the essentials to being an informed and engaged citizens in what we view as the most important level of government to daily life, county government. Topics range from the life of a ballot to the wild horses on public lands. The majority of Utah’s 29 counties are rural with a concentration of urban issues along the Wasatch Front. This dynamic lends an interesting twist to the show where we highlight a number of rural issues that the majority of Utahns may not be as familiar with. #CountiesMatter #CoutySeatS10E16
