December Civic Cocktail
Two hot topics -- immigration reform and the government's use of technology -- are on the agenda for the December Civic Cocktail. What does immigration reform mean for Seattle's undocumented immigrants? How can government harness technology to shape and improve its public services?
Host and veteran political journalist Joni Balter will chat with Rich Stolz, executive director of the Seattle-based immigrant support group OneAmerica, and then with city of Seattle Chief Technology Officer Michael Mattmiller and former head of HealthCare.gov, Kurt DelBene. A panel of journalists, including Crosscut Managing Editor Berit Anderson, will offer analysis. Check out Crosscut's Smartypants guide to get conversation ready on the topics.
Civic Cocktail - presented by Seattle Channel, Seattle CityClub and Crosscut - offers an evening of networking, civic conversation, Tom Douglas appetizers and a no-host bar.
