Tell Congressman Kilmer what you think | Letter to the editor

To the editor:

Excellent opportunities to see Congressman Kilmer this month all over the district at town hall meetings. (‘Congressman Kilmer plans busy home schedule’ in the Bainbridge Island Review, Aug. 4, 2017)

By giving constituents an opportunity to speak up about issues they care about, Kilmer shows he wants to listen. Whether it is affordable health care for all, protecting SNAP (formerly food stamps) from less than full funding, or stopping cuts to the State Department budget, it is an opportunity for citizens to help make a difference. Can’t make it? Send an email or make a phone call to make sure your voice is heard.

Not a bad idea to start with “Thank You, Rep. Kilmer” as not every member of congress gives such opportunities.
