Letter: City shouldn't pay for Obama visit

Let's do the math. The city of Glendale is struggling to “make” budget but is still picking up part of the tab for the president's visit to DreamWorks to the tune of $61,000. According to Fortune, the chief executive of DreamWork's Jeffrey Katzenberg is personally worth in the neighborhood of $800 million. Katzenberg has also given to and raised millions for the Democratic Party as well as the president's campaigns. I'd say this little stopover in Glendale was a political payback and we the taxpayers shouldn't be on the hook for it.
