Remember that "high-profiled dignitary" that HUPD emailed about? Well, tomorrow, Wednesday, March 5, President Obama will be in town, aka The Leader of the Free World, for the afternoon to attend a "DNC Roundtable" at 4:50 p.m. at the Charles Hotel in Harvard Square.
Before you sprint down JFK, note that this is not an open event. According to Boston Magazine, the event will have 25 attendees, each of whom have donated up to $32,400 to the Democratic Party. In return, they will discuss plans to raise the national minimum wage at a roundtable, as well as President Obama's executive order to raise the minimum wage for federal employees in 2015.
Parts of JFK Street and Memorial Drive will be closed from 4 p.m. to 6:30 p.m. tomorrow due to vehicle traffic (read: Look out for the presidential motorcade!).
If you don't catch a glimpse of Obama at the Charles Hotel, he will also deliver remarks concerning the minimum wage at 2:30 p.m. at Central Connecticut State University in New Britain, Connecticut. After the roundtable, he will speak and answer questions at a DNC dinner at the Artists for Humanity EpiCenter in Boston at 7:20 p.m.
And then maybe he'll visit his alma mater? Please?
