On Thursday, April 2 at 4:00 pm PT, Representative Derek Kilmer (WA-06) will hold a Facebook Live town hall with U.S. Small Business Administration (SBA) Regional Administrator Jeremy Field, who leads the economic development, small business initiatives and program operations for the SBA Pacific Northwest Region X – which serves Washington state. Rep. Kilmer and Administrator Field will discuss new resources approved by Congress to address Washington state’s growing economic challenges, discuss how small businesses can access economic relief, and answer questions from constituents.

“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. “Across our region and our entire country, the coronavirus is putting extraordinary strain on our healthcare system, our economy, and on families. I hope folks can join the town hall to get their questions answered and learn more about these new resources that could help during these difficult times.”
