Keeper of the Bay: “An Individual can make a difference”
Written by Will Houston, Times-Standard   

Humboldt Baykeeper’s Jen Kalt is one of nine women featured in the Times-Standard's Monday Magazine, a new publication celebrating local women in business. 

 

Kalt says that the lack of enforcement of many environmental laws in Humboldt County is “severe” and criticized decision makers who she said have “enabled” businesses to operate outside of those laws.

 

“I think that’s an injustice to the people who believe in running their business in ways that follow the laws and protect the environment and community,” she said.

 

“Industries come and go, but the bay and rivers, if we destroy them, they’re gone forever.”

Reviled by some as an agency that mires development in a tangle of regulatory red tape, the commission is revered by others as a last protective stand for the state's 1,100-mile-long stretch of shoreline.

 

 

In the upcoming months, the North Coast's seat will be coming up for appointment after voters handed the current representative, Del Norte County Supervisor Martha McClure, a resounding defeat in June.

 

That means the door is swinging open for supervisors, mayors and city council members from the counties of Humboldt, Mendocino and Del Norte to throw their hats into the ring.
