Two Town Halls Left for Rep. Kilmer
TACOMA, WA – To hear directly from residents of Washington’s 6th Congressional District, Representative Derek Kilmer has announced that he will be holding town halls throughout the region. Town halls are open to the public and all are encouraged to attend. Participants will have the opportunity to hear an update on Congress and ask questions.
“When I’m home it’s important to me that I hear from you”, said Kilmer “I hope folks will be able to join one of my upcoming town halls to share their ideas and concerns.”
Doors open a half hour before the start of each town hall. The schedule is as follows:
Our February 2017 general membership meeting is Thursday, February 2, 2017 at the Givens Community Center, 1026 Sidney Rd, Port Orchard 98366. Our social time begins at 6:30 p.m., with the meeting called to order at 7 p.m. We will be forming into committee groups and creating plans for the upcoming year.
Our Pierce Vice Chair Cecilia Hardy resigned recently—we are sad to see her go and we wish her well. The Executive Board appointed Rick Offner as Interim Vice Chair and elections for this position will be held during our March meeting.
Bylaws Chair George Robison has submitted a draft proposal for bylaws changes, and you can view these by clicking here. You can find them alternately by navigating to “Meetings” and then to “Meeting Minutes”. We will vote on these proposed changes during our March meeting.
We hope to see you at our February meeting, and bring a friend!
