Air Force Once at ALB during Barack's Obama's last visit here.

Update: The TU reports the President will be visiting the GE campus, most likely the new battery plant being constructed there.

The word going around this afternoon is that Barack Obama will be visiting next Tuesday. All the reports are based on unnamed "sources." [TU] [Daily Gazette]

The purpose of the visit is still unclear, but all the speculation is focused on some sort of GE-related thing. WTEN reports the "the governor's office" confirmed the POTUS will visit a GE facility. [WTEN]

Of course, President Obama visited the Capital Region in September 2009 and spoke at HVCC.

Comments

The WTEN article originally mentioned a trip to the GE facility specifically, but then changed the story to only mention that Schenectady has GE in it.
I'll keep my ears perked up at work...!

Right of the bat a great way to improve taxi service here: DUMP the zone and cab share policies add credit card payment. These are confusing, unfriendly to visitors, and there's no consistency.
