Over the past 8-plus years I’ve worked at The Seattle Channel, I really enjoyed the work I was able to do with Town Hall and City Club with their “Seattle Speaks” project. The photo you’re seeing here is from one of our town-hall style events regarding our state’s challenges with funding K-8 education, from a few years back.
I’m hopeful we can restart this series sometime soon! I’ve always thought that democracy works better not via emails and websites, but with people actually interacting with one another in person. Check out this link for an idea of the shows I really enjoy moderating, and for a lesson about the complicated and sometimes frustrating ways our state has funded our education system!
