Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan will discuss how the Emerald City has navigated COVID-19, what it takes to get a city of more than 750,000 to stay at home, and Seattle's recovery and mitigation efforts like grocery vouchers, rental assistance, and getting masks to those in need.

Paul Guppy, VP of Research for the pro-free-market Washington Policy Center, works extensively on tax policy, public finance, and other fiscal issues. He'll be discussing the economic impacts of COVID-19 and the importance of re-opening Washington's economy.
