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.

Washington state cracks the door on its economy giving some businesses a boost. But the Director of the state's COVID-19 Health System Response Raquel Bono tells host Joni Balter it will clamp down if the number of coronavirus cases spikes in the weeks ahead. Bono emphasizes, "we want to avoid increasing risk to others who may not be as capable of fighting this off." She also explains the current challenge regarding testing. Speaking as a former Navy surgeon, she answers the question about whether six feet of social separation really enough? And, as the coronavirus first emerged, former Washington Governor Gary Locke says the Trump administration was slow to act, "the W.H.O. sounded the alarm, many other countries around the world responded, the United States did not." Locke also comments on his puzzling appearance in an anti-Joe Biden ad and what it reveals about longstanding stereotypes. Plus, he updates Washington's participation in the current U.S. census.
