About Civic CocktailCitizen University TV

Civic Cocktail - presented by Seattle Channel and Seattle CityClub - offers a night of networking, civic conversation, Tom Douglas appetizers and a no-host bar. 

Wed., Nov. 4 | 6 p.m.

Join us November 4 for our final Civic Cocktail of 2020! We begin with former Republican WA Attorney General Rob McKenna. Joining him is a prominent Democrat (soon to be announced), and together they'll discuss the election results from the night before. Will there be a clear mandate? Where do the parties go from here? How might they work together after this long election season?

In our second segment, we'll focus on the positive in a conversation with Pastor Don Mackenzie and Imam Jamal Rahman, from the Interfaith Amigos. These men come from different faiths but work together in friendship and goodwill in our community. They'll offer healing thoughts as we continue to navigate these challenging times. Join us for this conversation to kick off your holiday season.

Civic Cocktail: Gen. Barry McCaffrey & New City Councilmembers
Civic Cocktail: Gen. Barry McCaffrey & New City Councilmembers

Despite growing terror threats and recent conflicts with Iran, retired four-star General Barry McCaffrey tells host Joni Balter the U.S. has never been more secure. He uses historical context to justify his claim saying it's highly unlikely our naval or air forces will run into anyone who is even remotely a competitor. MCaffrey also discusses Seattle's vulnerability to a North Korean attack, plus the damage done by President Trump to our defensive alliances. Then, meet the four new members of the Seattle City Council. Tammy Morales, Alex Pedersen, Dan Strauss, and Andrew Lewis share their thoughts on the downtown crime problem, a proposed countywide tax, the Third Avenue transit corridor, and how they feel about "Seattle Kraken" as a potential name for the city's future NHL team!
