Virtual Civic Cocktail with Town Hall Seattle 5/6: Raquel Bono + Gary Locke
May 6, 2020 @ 6:00 pm - 7:00 pmFree
Coronavirus is changing every aspect of day-to-day life, but the 24th United States Census remains underway. Come talk COVID, the Census, and the impact of both on Washington state with Raquel Bono and Gary Locke at Seattle CityClub’s free, live Virtual Civic Cocktail on Wednesday, May 6, from 6 to 7 p.m. (chat access opens at 5:30)!
Vice Admiral (ret.) Raquel Bono is Director of Washington State’s COVID-19 Health System Response Management, a critical position that ensures a coordinated and effective response to the COVID-19 pandemic across Washington’s health care system. She’ll discuss her three top priorities: protecting our frontline health care workers, optimizing all of Washington’s health resources, and keeping Washingtonians safe.
Gary Locke has been Governor of Washington, Ambassador to China, and U.S. Secretary of Commerce, and he’s currently the honorary chair of the King County Complete Count Committee. His varied background and recent work can lead to discussions on everything from how Census data will impact our community to Chinese-American relations to being attacked by the Trump campaign.
The event, hosted by respected journalist Joni Balter, is Wednesday, May 6, from 6 – 7 p.m. There is no cost to join, but attendance is limited so please register in advance.
