On Wednesday evening, October 22, the Seattle Channel will do a live Ask the Mayor program broadcast from City Hall, 7 to 8 PM.
The show format features a live audience and a topic of focus during the second half of the hour-long program. During the first half of the show, Mayor Ed Murray will join host Brian Callanan to discuss a range of city issues. Murray will answer questions posed by a live audience as well as viewer inquiries submitted via e-mail and social media.
In the second half of the program, Brian Callanan and Mayor Murray will discuss the Mayor’s proposed 2015-2016 budget. Mayor Murray submitted a 2015-2016 budget that expands funding for priorities in education, worker protections, public safety and support for the homeless. The mayor is also proposing to bring new transparency to the city budget, including increased accountability for program outcomes and improved access to information on city finances. The City Council has begun their review of the mayor’s proposal and is currently receiving public feedback. Joining the mayor will be Ben Noble, director of the City Budget Office.
