CityClub wants to know how you feel about public trust

September 8th, 2010 · No Comments

For its 2010 Community Matters Campaign, Seattle CityClub wants to know how you feel about public trust.

A recent Pew Research Center survey finds a perfect storm of conditions associated with distrust of government – a dismal economy, an unhappy public, bitter partisan-based backlash, and epic discontent with Congress and elected officials.

CityClub is hosting a series of free community dialogues on the issue, and it’s looking for community groups to host up to 20 people for each 60-minute dialogue, from Sept. 21 – Nov. 2. CityClub will provide trained facilitators and informational materials. Hosts provide space, participants, and refreshments.

CityClub will disseminate the ideas and outcomes generated in the dialogues to community leaders, elected officials, and policymakers. These strategies will inform our People’s Choice Awards, highlighting great work being done in our community on these issues at a finale celebration in November. All participants are invited to the Finale.

For more information, or to sign up to host a dialogue, email Paula Rhyne at prhyne@seattlecityclub.org.
