Missouri’s Second Congressional district includes much of the suburbs of St. Louis, including large portions of St. Louis, Jefferson and St. Charles counties. The district is a diverse community with urban business centers and rural farmland. Ann’s connection to St. Louis is vast; she has lived in the Second Congressional District for most of her life and is heavily invested in the strength of this community and its residents.
MISSOURI’S 2ND CONGRESSIONAL DISTRICT
Ann currently serves on the House Financial Services Committee – a key committee for the 2nd District and St. Louis region. St. Louis and its suburbs are national and regional centers for financial services activity. Over 84,000 people in St. Louis and its suburbs are employed in the financial services industry with a total payroll of around $4.57 billion. The St. Louis area is also home to national investment firms including Edward Jones, Scottrade, Stifel Financial and Wells Fargo Advisors, to name a few, making it one of the largest clusters of brokerage firms and personnel outside of New York.
Ann has consistently fought for the Second Congressional District’s priorities, and during her time in Congress, she has been a staunch supporter of St. Louis products, including the Boeing Growler and Super Hornet jets. The Growlers and Super Hornets are critical to our national defense and support thousands of St. Louis area jobs and dozens of small businesses.
