Obama to meet with Perry family during visit to Richmond

with 3 comments

President Barack Obama will meet today with the Perry family during his visit to Richmond.

Matt Perry and his wife Stephanie have two children. He is the president of the Southampton Community Recreation Association where the event is taking place. He is also the co-owner of Riverside Outfitters, a local company that provides recreation opportunities on the James River.

Perry has actually been a frequent contributor to NBC12 News. We have interviewed him for a number of stories that deal with everything from water levels on the James River, to how his business was given a boost by people choosing to stay close to home for their vacations.

A new schedule released by the White House this morning gives  a much more specific picture of how the President will spend his afternoon in the River City. It gives you an idea of how each second of the President’s time is accounted for:

Here is the rundown:
