POLL: Should DreamWorks Animation help Glendale pay for President Obama's visit?  

Last week, Councilman Zareh Sinanyan questioned why the city had to foot the bill alone when the president visited only with DreamWorks employees, entertainment industry executives and politicians, and not residents of Glendale.

In late November, Obama spoke about the entertainment’s role in the nation’s economy and diplomacy before a crowd of about 2,000 people at DreamWorks Animation in Glendale as part of a fundraising trip in Los Angeles. DreamWorks’ executive director Jeffrey Katzenberg is one of Obama’s top donors.
