Derek Dowsett is the Producer of the County Seat. Now entering his 11th season of the program, he has received what he considers a "Crash Course" in County Government.

There is a growing disconnect in the United States between urban and rural communities. The current narrative coming from rural communities is economic struggle and urban communities are being identified as the center of economic development. It’s a story that isn’t true and it will take leadership to change the story currently playing out in rural Utah.

The good news is that the tides are turning and there are exciting changes coming to rural communities throughout America and those changes will help strengthen all of our communities. As you will find from our conversation with Chuck Fluharty, Director, Rural Policy Research Institute RUPRI.
