Presentation by Derek Kilmer
Derek represents Washington’s 6th Congressional District in the U.S. House of Representatives. He was born and raised in Port Angeles and currently resides in Gig Harbor with his wife Jennifer and daughters Sophie and Tess. Sophie is 11 years old and wants to become a computer programmer while Tess wants to become a princess (maybe she already is). He is a grad of Port Angeles HS and a Princeton Rhodes Scholar in Economics with a doctorate from England’s Oxford University. He previously also served in the Washington state House and state Senate. 
 
His goal as a member of Congress is to clean up the way Congress does its business. As a member of the Joint Select Committee for Budget Reform he sponsored “no budget, no pay” legislation. He has championed the DISCLOSE (Democracy is Strengthened by Casting Light on Spending in Elections) Act, the Government by the People Act, the Democracy for All amendment, the Federal Election Campaign Reform Bill and the Honest Ads Act. He is member of the Bipartisan Working group consisting of 12 Democrats and 12 Republicans that meets for breakfast weekly when in session to keep open the lines of communication and which works to find bipartisan consensus on many issues.
