U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer to host telephone town hall

WASHINGTON — U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer will host a telephone town hall at 6 p.m. Wednesday.

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. Pacific time Tuesday. Those who sign up before the deadline will receive a phone call Wednesday inviting them to the town hall.

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

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

“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. I hope you’re able to participate in this upcoming call to share your ideas and concerns.”

To date this year, Kilmer has 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.
