The 2017 election focused on seemingly intractable problems, such as homelessness, the lack of affordable housing, transportation and growth management, income inequality, and police reform. Now, as Jenny Durkan prepares to take office as Seattle’s fourth mayor this year, without the usual three-month transition period, citizens will be looking to her and other civic leaders for solutions.

 

Join your fellow journalists for a peer-to-peer panel discussion and audience Q&A moderated by KCTS’s Enrique Cerna and featuring David Kroman of Crosscut, Heidi Groover of The Stranger, Marcus Green of the South Seattle Emerald and more. How can the media uncover and report on promising scaleable solutions, using data and other evidence? What are the benefits of coordinated media coverage on issues like homelessness, and of “labs,” enabling ongoing in-dept coverage of hot-button topics? What role can columnists play in highlighting new ideas? Can solutions-based reporting restore civic confidence in the media and in government?
