Approaching 100 days on the job, Mayor Ed Murray joins host Brian Callanan for his first appearance on Ask the Mayor and the first episode of the show to feature a live audience. The program opens with a Q&A covering a range of city issues including rideshare caps, the creation of a parks district, neighborhood crime, universal preschool and more.
The second half of the show focuses on raising the minimum wage. The co-chairs of the mayor`s Income Inequality Advisory Committee -- Howard Wright, Seattle Hospitality Group CEO, and David Rolf, president of SEIU Healthcare 775NW -- join in the conversation.
