President Obama at Prince George's County Community College

October 20, 2013  •  2 Comments

Born and raised in Washington, D.C. I had never seen a President or even a presidential motorcade - kind of incredible.  And now, how lucky. Via my job at The Greater Bethesda-Chevy Chase Chamber of Commerce and by invitation from the Office of Maryland Senator Ben Cardin, my colleagues and I watched a recent speech on the Affordable Care Act (ACA). We were invited to stand behind him on the podium. But, hey, how would I get a chance to take a picture of him or shake his hand from there!

Hey Ivonne, these photos are fantastic! I've attended several campaign rallies for President Obama, but I was one of thousands upon thousands of people in an open field and another time at Jiffy Lube Live. You got up close and personal! (Sweet :-) Mel
