With local and state budgets stretched thin, what can we do to clean up stormwater pollution that threatens the health of Puget Sound? Can cleaning polluted runoff help—not hamper—our economy?
These topics and more will be discussed next Wednesday (March 23) at a public forum and panel discussion in Olympia. Sightline’s Lisa Stiffler will be a panelist, and the event will feature William Ruckelshaus, former chair of the Puget Sound Partnership Leadership Council; Josh Baldi of the Washington Department of Ecology; and Grant Nelson from the Association of Washington Business.
Where: Capitol Campus in Olympia, Room B/C, John Cherberg Building
When: Noon-1:15 pm (light lunch provided)
Format: Panel discussion/Q-and-A followed by moderator-led interaction with audience members.
Bring your questions and suggestions!
Who is hosting/organizing the event? Is it Sightline, or a different organization? Thanks.
Hi Kurt, good question. It’s hosted by Sightline, InvestigateWest, and Washington Policy Center (and each of those groups will have a representative who will question the guests).
Eric,I suspect this event took place last week, but on what day (I see that the time it took place was noon to 1:15 pm)? Any chance you can post a transcript of the panel discussion? Tbanks, Curtis
Eric,Sorry. I’m reading challenged. I see clearly now that the post says the event is scheduled for March 23rd. I’m not sure I can make it, so I’m still hoping a transcript can be made available.Curtis
Hi Curtis -Here’s a blog post that summarized some of the key points of the forum, and it includes a link to a non-verbatim transcript (I can only type so fast!). Thanks for your interest.
