On Tuesday, October 27 at 5pm, KPTZ will live broadcast the ICG presentation from Michael H. Shuman, who will speak on the topic of Rebooting Our Community After COVID-19. A leading expert on community economics, Mr. Shuman works with communities to help them develop local reinvestment strategies.
The COVID-19 pandemic has created significant economic challenges for our community, and planning for recovery and resiliency is already underway: our elected leaders at Jefferson County, the City of Port Townsend, the Port of Port Townsend, and Jefferson County PUD have joined together to form the Intergovernmental Collaborative Group, or ICG, to begin this recovery planning effort.
KPTZ’s October 27 Local News and Community Calendar, normally scheduled for 5pm on Tuesdays, will immediately follow this special ICG presentation broadcast. An additional airing of Our Town with host Maryanne McNellis’s interview of KPTZ Board President Robert Ambrose will begin at 6:10pm, with information about KPTZ’s upcoming move to Fort Worden in 2021. Alternative Radio, which usually airs at 6pm, will return next week at its usual time.
