Commissioner of Public Lands Hilary Franz
Last summer, wildfire smoke caused Seattle to have the worst air quality in the world. Wildfire season has returned, and it’s off to an unprecedented start. This year, more than half of the fires have broken out west of the Cascades, according to Hilary Franz, Washington’s commissioner of public lands and head of the state Department of Natural Resources which manages nearly six million acres of public lands. Franz will discuss the region’s wildfire readiness, the impacts of climate change on forest health and efforts to bridge the state’s partisan divide through environmental policy.

Civic Cocktail: Homelessness discussion & Mayor Murray
3/2/201658:11

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.
