A Capitol Tour

— image credit:
Jim and Suzi Schuenemann, to the right of Congressman Derek Kilmer, join a group from Gig Harbor as they get a tour of the United States Capitol Building in Washington, D.C., on Oct. 11. “I’m fighting to end the shutdown because it is hurting our economy and creating real hardship for folks in our region,” Kilmer wrote on his Facebook page. “The shutdown also has had an impact on those who had planned a family vacation to our nation’s capital, only to find that the museums, monuments and public buildings are all closed. As a member of Congress I can still escort guests into the Capitol, so I reached out to some families from our neck of the woods and offered to give them a tour during their stay here in D.C.” Submitted photo
