Congressman Kilmer hosts telephone town hall Thursday

U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer will hold a telephone town hall later this week.

The call-in event is planned for 6 p.m. Thursday, Feb. 15. Residents of Washington’s 6th Congressional District will have the opportunity to ask Kilmer a question or leave a message with their comments.

“One of Congress’s biggest problems is people forget about the impact that the decisions they make have on our community,” Kilmer said. “I work for you, so it is important to me that I hear directly from you.”

Residents of the 6th District who would like to join the call can send an email to with their name and phone number by noon Wednesday, Feb. 14.

Residents who sign up before the deadline will receive a phone call around 6 p.m. Thursday night inviting them to the town hall which will start at 6:05 p.m. and last about one hour. They’ll have the option to stay on the line to participate, or simply leave a message with their views.

This is the second telephone town hall of 2018. Earlier this month, Kilmer held two in-person town halls with local businesses. He’s also participated in roundtable meetings with fishermen, public health workers and Realtors.
