ASPEN — Michelle Obama and her daughters, Sasha and Malia, arrived Friday in Aspen to enjoy Presidents Day weekend.
Law-enforcement officials declined to discuss the first lady's plans for the short stay, but Pitkin County Sheriff Joe DiSalvo said that his agency will be providing assistance to the Secret Service during the visit. DiSalvo said his understanding is that Obama will leave town by Sunday.
Vice President Joe Biden also is visiting the area this week, with a short ski trip planned in Snowmass Village, according to published reports. Sgt. Brian Olson, of the Snowmass Village Police Department, declined to discuss the second-in-command's stay.
“We don't have information we're providing one way or another,” he said.
DiSalvo said the Sheriff's Office will have seven to eight deputies helping the Secret Service during Obama's visit.
“As usual, we are there to support the Secret Service just like we support any other law enforcement in the state of Colorado,” he said. “They have no power of arrest, so if they do need the power of arrest, we are there. And it's important that they have our local knowledge.”
