“I work for the people I represent and it’s important to me that I get opportunities to hear directly from you,” said Rep. Kilmer. “I hope folks will be able to join one of my upcoming town halls, in person or online, to share their ideas and concerns.”

Rep. Kilmer has held town halls in Bremerton, Port Angeles, Quilcene, Tacoma, Belfair, Poulsbo, Kingston, Gig Harbor, Montesano, Westport, Forks, over the phone, and on Facebook in the 116th Congress.
