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: Senator Murray & Gary Locke
Civic Cocktail: Senator Murray & Gary Locke

Washington Sen. Patty Murray doesn't hold back while discussing the latest capers of the Trump White House. She tells host Joni Balter what she really thinks about EPA Chief Scott Pruitt and Education Secretary Betsy DeVos. Since Murray took office in 1992, the number of women in the U.S. Senate has quadrupled. She says as a group they often cross party lines to find solutions. On the question of impeachment, Murray had a two-word answer. Also, a man who's worn many political hats shares his thoughts on the U.S. census controversy and international trade. Former governor, U.S. Commerce Secretary and U.S. Ambassador to China Gary Locke gives his take on the census citizenship question and why tariffs are hurting many of our closest allies. And, remember the viral photo of Locke and family carrying their own luggage in China? He shares a few humorous anecdotes about that experience as well.
