The SCAN public access television network show “Public Exposure” is interviewing My Edmonds News publisher Teresa Wippel and columnist “Citizen Harry” Gatjens at 8 p.m. tonight (Thursday). Comcast Cable customers can watch the show live on Channel 77/23. Non-Comcast customers can stream it live over the Web by going to www.scantv.org and clicking on “Watch the Online Stream.”
Host Stan Emert will explore the role that online news organizations and active citizens can play in engaging people in local government. Earlier this year, Emert interviewed former Edmonds Mayor Gary Haakenson about Edmonds’ economic development as it related to the city’s porposed purchase of the Skipper’s restaurant property.
Teresa & Harry:
Watched the program; 30 minutes was too little. Both of you came across real well – just two sincere people trying to contribute to your city. And you’re being successful! Keep up the good work.
Missed it, darn it! Will this be aired again? Is it on YouTube?
@Harry…do you have a “Citizen Harry” email address (one you have no problems posting?)…I have some reading material for you and would like to just send it to you but can’t find an address.
The show will be rebroadcast next Wednesday at 3:00PM on Comcast channel 77. I can also make a DVD copy if anyone can’t get the channel.
If you want to request a copy of send me any info you can do it at
Thanks for the comments.
I forgot to add that the show will also be on Youtube in a couple of days. I will post the link when it is up.
the show is now on Youtube
Just wanted to say thank you to Ron Wambolt for sending me an email with the correct salaries of city council members, as I stumbled badly in trying to answer that question on “Public Exposure.” For those of you who want to know: Council members are paid $600 a month, as well as $50 per meeting up to a maximum of 8 meetings – so a maximum of $1,000. The meetings that qualify are all council meetings, and an approved list of outside meetings. Additionally, they receive full medical and dental coverage. The council president is paid $200 a month more.
Real first and last names — as well as city of residence — are required for all commenters.
