Kilmer announces extended office hours in Bremerton

BREMERTON — Due to the negative impacts of the government shutdown on residents in the 6th Congressional District, Rep. Derek Kilmer’s offices in Bremerton will hold extended constituent office hours.

“I’m dead set against this shutdown. It’s an example of what happens when Congress doesn’t get its job done. But because we’re in an area where the federal government is the largest employer and we could see many negative impacts, I’m asking my staff to do their job and then some,” said Kilmer. “My office has heard from a number of people who have expressed concerns about how they will be impacted so I want to make sure my office is available to go the extra mile to help out. If you know someone who may need assistance, please put them in touch with us.”

Kilmer’s offices in Bremerton will be open to conduct casework and provide assistance to constituents who may be negatively impacted until 7 p.m. for the duration of a government shutdown.

Kilmer’s office will announce extended weekend office hours at a later date. Constituents with any questions should Kilmer’s offices in Bremerton at 360-373-9725.

Kilmer announced last week that he would give up his pay in the event of a government shutdown.
