Congressman Kilmer hosts telephone town hall this week

U.S. Rep. Derek Kilmer wants to talk about the year ahead for Congress, and will host a telephone town hall to get input this week from his constituents in Washington’s 6th Congressional District.

Kilmer (D-WA) will hold the town hall at 6 p.m. Thursday, Jan. 18. People can ask the congressman a question or leave a message with their comments.

“As we start the new year, there is a lot of work that Congress needs to get done,” Kilmer said.

“It is vital to me to remain accessible and accountable, and it always helps to hear directly from folks in our region about what’s most important to them,” he added.

Residents of the 6th District who would like to join the call can send an email to kilmer.teletownhall@mail.house.gov with their name and phone number by noon Wednesday, Jan. 17.

Residents who sign up before the deadline will receive a phone call around 6 p.m. Thursday inviting them to the town hall, which will start at 6:05 p.m. and last about one hour.

This is Kilmer’s first telephone town hall of 2018.

Last year, he held 13 town halls, including in Tacoma, Bremerton, Aberdeen, and on a ferry route from Bainbridge Island to Seattle.

Kilmer 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.
