Seattle CityClub Civic Cocktail: Mayor Jenny Durkan + Paul Guppy
June 3, 2020 @ 5:30 pm - 7:00 pm
Seattle CityClub is excited to present its last Civic Cocktail until September and will head into a summer break with big names discussing big issues affecting our city, state, and region. Join us June 3 for a free, live Virtual Civic Cocktail with Seattle Mayor Jenny Durkan and Washington Policy Center VP for Research Paul Guppy.
Durkan, Seattle’s mayor since her election in 2017, will discuss how the Emerald City has navigated COVID-19, what it takes to maintain a quarantine in a city of more than 750,000 people, and recovery and mitigation efforts like grocery vouchers, rental assistance, and getting masks to those in need.
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 state’s economy.
The event, hosted by respected journalist Joni Balter, is Wednesday, June 3, from 6 – 7 p.m.
There is no cost to join, but attendance is limited so please register in advance (register here).
Special thanks to CityClub’s regular Civic Cocktail partners Comcast, Tom Douglas Restaurants, Crosscut, KUOW, and the Evergrey.
