Richmond Mayor goes the extra mile for eminent domain
Marches in protest outside Wells Fargo headquarters
Richmond, Calif., Mayor Gayle McLaughlin went the extra mile to express her frustrations with Wells Fargo (WF) this week. McLaughlin and more than 40 protesters were turned away from Wells Fargo's corporate headquarters after demanding to speak with top executives about the city's use of eminent domain. Per Contra Costa Times:
"For Wells Fargo to be suing us is outrageous," McLaughlin said after marching down Montgomery Street with dozens of supporters. "We just want them to cooperate with our efforts to save our communities."
