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.

He introduces himself as "...a three-time cancer surviving, fully blind, Iranian American from a mixed religion, immigrant family." Lt. Gov. Cyrus Habib shares personal stories and reveals his humorous side during a lively conversation with host Joni Balter. Habib describes his "coolest" moment serving as acting governor, a role he's assumed a lot lately! He reveals who he supports for president, whether he'll run for governor and remembers fondly the person who first taught him to advocate for himself. Plus, the region's top two law enforcement leaders discuss police reform, recruiting, the recent Lake City shooting, and the homeless crisis. Seattle Police Chief Carmen Best says, "We are not going to arrest our way out of homelessness." She said responding to the crisis requires a collaborative multi-disciplinary approach. King County Sheriff Mitzi Johanknecht - whose office is a partner in the effort - praised the many organizations, nonprofits and government agencies working to help solve the problem of homelessness.
