Shifting city politics and the port on Civic Cocktail
Shifting city politics and the port on Civic Cocktail

It was a stimulating blend of civic conversation at the April Civic Cocktail. Three veteran Seattle City Councilmembers, Sally Clark, Nick Licata and Tom Rasmussen, discussed why they aren't seeking re-election, the pros and cons of district elections and their predictions for the coming shift in Seattle politics. Plus, Seattle Port Commissioner Tom Albro joined host Joni Balter for a candid conversation about Port of Seattle issues, including concerns about Arctic drilling and the port's controversial decision to lease a terminal for Shell Oil's drilling rigs. Will the moored rigs pose a threat to the city's port?
