Representative Derek Kilmer (D-WA) is forced to reschedule several town hall meetings he had announced earlier this week due to a change in the House voting schedule. The House will remain in session next week as members continue pushing for an end to the federal government shutdown.

“I always enjoy engaging in-person with the folks I represent at town hall meetings,” Kilmer said. “We will get these rescheduled as soon as possible.  For now, I’m putting all my energy into ending this mindless government shutdown that’s bad for our economy and terrible for people in our region who are showing up to work but not being paid.”

Kilmer will postpone the events scheduled from January 22nd -25th to early February. Barring additional changes in the House voting schedule, town halls scheduled in Kitsap and Mason Counties on the 26th will continue as scheduled.  Details on time and location are provided below. Kilmer will also host a Facebook Live town hall from his DC office next week at the following date and time:
