Anti-Trump Activists Aim to Put Ann Wagner in the Hot Seat With Demonstration in Des Peres

Indivisible St. Louis, the grassroots political action group behind the pro-immigration protest at Senator Roy Blunt's Clayton office on February 1, has a new demonstration on the calendar this one aimed at Congresswoman Ann Wagner (R-St. Louis).

Residents of Missouri's second congressional district plan to gather on sidewalk outside at the Edward Jones headquarters in Des Peres on February 23 at noon to call for Wagner to hold a public town hall meeting. While Wagner's policies and proposals have benefited her donors, organizers are concerned that she doesn't realize how her policies affect the citizens of her district.

Wagner's top source of donations in the 2016 cycle were employees at Edward Jones' parent company, Jones Financial, who kicked in $42,400 to her campaign and another $8,200 to related political action committees.
