U.S. Representative Derek Kilmer will visit every county in the 6th District to meet with constituents, local business leaders and stakeholders in a “State of the District” tour.

Rep. Kilmer will hold meetings throughout the region during the upcoming district work period to better understand the concerns of his constituents and promote his plans for economic development.

During the “State of the District" tour, Kilmer will hold roundtable discussions on federal workforce issues, environmental issues, small business issues and education issues.

Additionally, he will hold meetings with seniors, veterans and attend "Kilmer at Your Company" events where he is accessible to a company’s workforce. The Gig Harbor Democrat will also speak to Rotary Clubs and other organizations during the tour.

“Building a strong and healthy economy in the region begins with conversation,” Kilmer said. “I’m looking forward to visiting every county and getting input on ways we can grow our economy, create jobs, and solve problems for folks here at home.”
