Barack is back and he's here to stay. After a well-deserved vacation with the fam, Obama has finally returned to Chicago on Wednesday to meet about his foundation.
The former President allegedly had four meetings on Wednesday, according to the Chicago Sun-Times. One meeting was with community leaders of the South Side, so he could get a feel of what's been going on there.
“The South Side is the President and Mrs. Obama’s home so he intends to not only build the Center there, but also bring opportunities to the area," said Obama's former senior adviser Valerie Jarrett. "The President was very eager to hear suggestions from the community members and encouraged them to continue the dialogue with his team after he left."
The other three meetings were focused primarily on fundraising efforts for his upcoming Obama Center, which he plans to have located in Jackson Park.
“There was great enthusiasm from the civic leaders about the opportunity to work with the Foundation," said Jarrett. “Those with whom President Obama met have long and deep ties to the community. It was important to the President to communicate how important they are to the success of the Center."
We can't wait to see what's in store for Barack and Michelle!
