Let's do the math. The city of Glendale is struggling to “make” budget but is still picking up part of the tab for the president's visit to DreamWorks to the tune of $61,000 . According to Fortune, the chief executive of DreamWork's Jeffrey Katzenberg is personally worth in the neighborhood of $800 million. Katzenberg has also given to and raised millions for the Democratic Party as well as the president's campaigns. I'd say this little stopover in Glendale was a political payback and we the taxpayers shouldn't be on the hook for it. William Slaughter Glendale
