Letter: A local perspective on Obama's visit

Thank you to the Glendale News-Press for covering President Obama's visit to DreamWorks this week. The film industry is definitely an important part of our local economy.

What was missing from the story was the “neighborhood” perspective — how often do Glendale residents witness four military helicopters landing at Toll Middle School or a Presidential motorcade headed southbound on Concord Street?

The logistics of landing aircraft on a school athletic field, and security and safety for the President were all-important. Everything was handled with precision.

My friends and I were thrilled to have witnessed the President's visit first-hand, right in our own neighborhood!
