Congressman Derek Kilmer will hold his sixth telephone town hall with constituents of Washington’s 6th District this week.

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

The telephone town hall is 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 29.

“I hope folks are able to join my next telephone town hall,” Kilmer said. “I work for you, and I want to make sure that I continue to be accessible and accountable to you.”

Residents of the 6th District who would like to join the call can sign up at or send an email to with their name and phone number by 3 p.m. Monday, April 28.

Residents who sign up before the deadline will receive a phone call at 6 p.m. Tuesday, April 29 inviting them to the town hall.

In the 15 months since he has taken office, Kilmer has held more than 10 in-person town halls across the region, in addition to town halls via phone and internet.

He also frequently meets face-to-face with constituents and takes their questions at forums and “Kilmer at Your Company” events.

This will be the sixth telephone town hall held by Representative Kilmer.
