After a delay returning from Washington, D.C., 2nd District Congresswoman-elect Ann Wagner arrived with her husband, Raymond Wagner, at the Ballwin Board of Aldermen meeting Dec. 10 to receive a city proclamation.
"The Wagners are terrific civil servants to Ballwin and our country," said Ballwin Mayor Tim Pogue.
Raymond Wagner served as a municipal judge in Ballwin in the early 2000s until taking leave after Ann Wagner became U.S. ambassador to Luxembourg in 2005.
The Wagners also have three children: Raymond, serving in the 101st Airborne in Fort Campbell; Stephen, a senior at Washington University; and Mary Ruth, a senior at Ursuline Academy.
"Ballwin is home for us," Ann Wagner said. "It is an honor to be representing this municipality and the rest of District 2."
