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.

Now that Democrats have regained control of the U.S. House, what impact will it have on legislation and the president's agenda? U.S. Rep. Pramila Jayapal (D-Seattle) tells host Joni Balter the wave of women elected is a clear rejection of the GOP's divisive politics. But Jason Rantz, morning host of AM 770 KTTH, says the House takeover is simply history repeating itself. He also says any talk of bipartisanship is just that, talk. And Seattle University political science professor Marco Lowe says the midterms are already forgotten, and attention is now focused on 2020. Also, they're beloved by many, but how do we save our southern resident orcas from extinction? Stephanie Solien, co-chair of the state's killer whale task force, says the most immediate benefit may be to quiet the waters around the pods, increasing their ability to find food. Makah Tribal Chairman Nate Tyler says the heartbreaking sight of an orca carrying her dead calf for 17 days was her way of telling the world the ecosystem is severely out of balance. He says the time to take bold action is now.
