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.

During a wide-ranging conversation with host Joni Balter, Gov. Jay Inslee discusses renewable energy, saving the beloved orcas, a fiscal surprise for lawmakers, and, of course, climate change. He says all the reports that the planet is in trouble are NOT true. "Planet Earth is going to be okay; it's just humanity that's the problem." And, we continue to talk politics with the two state party chairs. The head of the state Democrats, Tina Podlodowski says activating the grass roots has been key to its success. She also says the people of this country are being neglected by the president. State Republican Party Chair Caleb Heimlich disagrees. But he says it's important to have a dialogue and agree to disagree, so long as we treat each other with dignity and respect. Heimlich also reveals a few GOP prospects that could someday seek higher office.
