Seattle ChannelSeattle Channel’s live show Ask the Mayor is back with a new Mayor and a new format. The show is hanging up the phone on the live call-in show format and bringing in a live audience, more social media interaction, and a topic of focus during the second half of the hour-long program.

Mayor Murray’s first episode will premiere 7 p.m., Tuesday, March 25 live from Seattle City Hall’s Bertha Knight Landes Room. The second half of this first show will focus on the debate around wages and inequality and the push to raise Seattle’s minimum wage to $15 an hour. Joining the Mayor in the minimum wage conversation will be the co-chairs of his Income Inequality Advisory Committee: Howard Wright, Seattle Hospitality Group CEO, and David Rolf, president of SEIU Healthcare 775NW, a service employees union for health care workers.
