Davidson, R-Troy, represents the 8th Congressional District, a seat previously held by U.S. Speaker of the House John Boehner. The district includes Clark County as well as Darke, Miami, Preble and Butler counties and part of Mercer County.

Indivisible is a group organized to oppose President Donald Trump’s political agenda. Davidson is expected to answer questions from constituents during the event.

Earlier this month, protesters disrupted with chants and yelling a recent town hall meeting with Davidson in Troy. Many of the protesters walked out after being told to stay quiet during the event where the congressman was talking about issues such as health care, Syria and Russia.
