CityClub March Civic Cocktail
Special guest Mayor Ed Murray will join us for March's Civic Cocktail to discuss his priorities for Seattle in 2015 with host Joni Balter. In his first year, Seattle’s mayor pushed for big changes in our community: he won passage of a $15 minimum wage, helped find a new police chief and won the approval of a universal Pre-K program. What's next for Murray and our city?
Later in the program, a panel of experts will talk about Gov. Jay Inslee's proposed energy-related taxes and environmental policy initiatives in light of climate change. Yoram Bauman, The World's Only Stand-up Economist; Rod Brown, Co-Chair of the governor's Carbon Emissions Reduction Task Force and Cascadia Law Group partner and The Nature Conservancy's Mike Stevens will give insight into the governor's proposed green initiatives and what they mean for tax payers and the community.
A panel of journalists will join the discussion including KUOW's Ashley Ahearn, Crosscut's Knute Berger and KCTS-9's Enrique Cerna.
Civic Cocktail - presented by Seattle Channel, Seattle CityClub and Crosscut - offers a night of networking, civic conversation, Tom Douglas appetizers and a no-host bar. Join us for another round of drinks, eats and smart talk!
