Phone town hall

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer will host a telephone town hall at 6 p.m. Tuesday, Nov. 14.

Residents of the 6th Congressional District, which includes the North Olympic Peninsula, can send an email to [email protected] with their name and phone number by 3 p.m. Monday, Nov. 13. Those who sign up before the deadline will receive a phone call Nov. 14 inviting them to the town hall.

Participants will have the opportunity to ask Kilmer, D-Gig Harbor, a question or leave a message with comments.

“It’s important to me that I hear directly from the people I represent,” said Kilmer in a news release.

“It’s why in order to stay accountable and accessible every year I hold a series of town halls in person and over the phone.”

This year, Kilmer has already held 11 town halls, including in Tacoma, Bremerton, Aberdeen and on a ferry route from Bainbridge Island to Seattle.

He also hosted four town halls this year at local colleges and universities in the region and a number of employee town halls at local businesses.

In 2016, Kilmer held seven town hall meetings across the district.

In addition, Kilmer holds telephone town halls, open office hours and meets with constituents on ferries, public buses and at their places of employment.
