DNC Refuses To Reimburse Conn. Town For Overtime Costs During Obama Visit
First Selectman Gordon Joseloff says the Democratic National Committee notified the town it will not pay police and fire overtime costs totaling $14,812.

The town asked the DNC and Obama for America to pay the overtime costs incurred when the president arrived at Sherwood Island State Park on Aug. 6 to attend a fundraiser in Stamford and a $35,800 per person dinner at the Westport home of movie producer Harvey Weinstein.

“I didn’t expect that we would get repayment, but it was worthwhile to ask,” Joseloff told the Register.

NOBODY ever reimburses local jurisdictions when the President, Vice President, Candidate for President or if another high government official "visits" an area.

This is true whether the President is Republican or Democratic. This is true whether the Vice President is Republican or Democratic. This is true whether the candidate for President is Republican or Democratic.

It is an equal opportunity stiff job by BOTH parties AND the Federal Government!!

Don't want the President or other high official visiting?

Why not just close off the roads into town with heavy construction equipment or dump trucks from the city/county fleet if you hear the President or a Presidential Candidate is coming?
