In the first episode of Sentinel Interviews filmed in-studio, host Charles Douglas sits down with Kirk Girard, Community Development Services Director for the County of Humboldt, to discuss the controversial role he plays in regulating development in the area. Girard digs into the tug-of-war between conservationists and business interests in the General Plan Update process, and also gets into his record in private industry and what motivates him to pursue an agenda of simultaneously stimulating economic development while protecting natural resources.
