Kilmer launches Olympic Peninsula Economic Development initiative
January 17th, 2014 - 10:06am
(Washington, DC) – Sixth District Congressman Derek Kilmer has released an “Olympic Peninsula Economic Development Initiative”.
Kilmer says the initiative came in light of the persistent high unemployment rate here, and after months of meetings with constituents to discuss ways to improve the economy.
The six-point plan lays out ideas, bills, and tools Kilmer says would strengthen the foundations of economic growth, promote innovation and entrepreneurism, and to protect natural resources.
Kilmer says he thinks the federal government could be used to better leverage some of the economic development components in place on the Olympic Peninsula.
