Obama's Appearance in Cleveland Likely at Luke Easter Park

Spokeswoman for U.S. Rep Marcia Fudge says details to come from the White House

President Barack Obama will be in Cleveland Monday, and chances are his stop will be at the 11th Congressional District Labor Day Parade and Festival.

The office of U.S. Rep. Marcia Fudge confirmed that is close to securing his appearance for the annual event.

"Yes it is true," Belinda Prinz, a spokeswoman for Fudge, wrote in an email. "However, details are not yet available from the White House."

The parade takes place at 10 a.m. at Luke Easter Park, 3090 Martin Luther King Jr. Drive, in Cleveland. Prinz said a time for Obama's possible appearance is not yet available.

An Obama campaign spokesperson previously told The Plain Dealer that the president would make a stop in the Cleveland area on Labor Day. The Democratic National Convention also kicks off in Charlotte with a celebration on Monday.

Are the democrats going to reimburse for the costs?

Republicans haven't repaid their costs in the past. Typical partisan stupidity and/or selective memory.
