Mayor Ed Murray sits down for a one-on-one with host Joni Balter to discuss equity and growth, policing, education and the city's homelessness state of emergency. What's the most important thing Murray will do as mayor? Are city policies pricing people out of Seattle? Will the feds provide more funding to address homeless and housing crises in Seattle and other cities? Then, Murray joins a panel discussion on homelessness, its causes and solutions with Daniel Malone, executive director of the Downtown Emergency Service Center; Seattle City Councilmember Mike O'Brien and Cindy Pierce of the Neighborhood Safety Alliance.
