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: Attorney General Bob Ferguson & Secretary of State Kim Wyman
Civic Cocktail: Attorney General Bob Ferguson & Secretary of State Kim Wyman

Washington Attorney General Bob Ferguson explains his rationale behind 58 lawsuits against the Trump administration. He tells host Joni Balter, "There are many times the administration does something that I think is not the right way to do something." Ferguson's challenges cover a wide range of issues including immigration, environmental protections, 3-D printed guns, the border wall, and DACA. Currently, the Attorney General's office is also investigating possible price gouging related to the coronavirus. Concerns about COVID-19 also have Secretary of State Kim Wyman urging voters not to lick the envelope on their election ballots, as a precaution. And with the state's presidential primary just around the corner, election security is top of mind. Wyman describes it as a race with no end, as security experts keep up with operatives trying new schemes to hack the system. She explains what's being done to keep this state's election firewalls secure.
