Never in a million years did I think I would have to reschedule my day so that I could attend a Town Hall Meeting with the President of the United States. You can imagine that phone call “I’m sorry I can’t be there after all. I am meeting with the President.” Ok…so it’s not a one on one but I do have the opportunity to attend tomorrow’s Town Hall Meeting with President Barack Obama. He will be in Charlotte to discuss the earning and economic prospects of American Women in the workforce. He will discuss increasing the federal Child Tax Credit, expanding the Earned Income Tax Credit and will also address the Paycheck Fairness Act and The Fair Pay Act.

I am honored to have this opportunity. Now I must figure out what to wear and to remind myself to breathe.
Whether you love him or hate him….this is
THE President of the United States.
