Rep. Derek Kilmer to Lead Congressional Modernization in New Role

Derek Kilmer

Derek Kilmer, D-Wash., has been appointed to lead the Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress as chairman.

The new committee is intended to address the demand of U.S. citizens for a more ethical, transparent, unifying and responsive Congress, said House Speaker Nancy Pelosi.

“The Select Committee on the Modernization of Congress will deliver this promise, and advance a House of Representatives that is diverse, dynamic and oriented toward the future,” Pelosi added.

Kilmer served as a business consultant at McKinsey & Company, a Washington-based firm where he supported firms, organizations and agencies across the state.

He then went on to serve with the Washington state house and senate before running for Congress.

Kilmer has contributed to a number of bipartisan efforts such as those concerning job infrastructure and the state budget.
