PLEASANTVILLE, N.Y. -- People in Pleasantville expressed excitement over President Barack Obama's visit to Westchester this weekend.
Obama arrived at Westchester County Airport Friday afternoon, attending a fundraiser at Premium Point in New Rochelle and then attending a fundraiser in Purchase.
On Saturday, he is visiting Blue Hill at Stone Barns in Sleepy Hollow to attend the wedding of his personal chef.
Kyle Thomas at LaDuca Auto in Pleasantville said he was worried about the traffic on his drive home to Yonkers. He said if he saw the president he would ask him for $10.
"I could use $10," Thomas said. "And I bet a lot of my tax dollars didn't go to anything useful."
Brian Soleyn said he thought it was a good idea for the president to come to Westchester.
"This shows his commitment to being in touch with the folks on the ground," Soleyn said. "He should come here and get the views of the people he seeks to serve."
Soleyn said that while the president's visit could be an inconvenience, it goes with the territory of having him in town.
