Cost of Obama's visit
By Margaret Cloud
November 16, 2015
It was recently stated in a letter published on November 11 that the cost of Obama's visit to Alaska was $600 million dollars. That number is very wrong. The cost was just under $600,000 and was for Anchorage police overtime and other expenses.
The city reports that approximately $1 million was generated by the Global Leadership in the Arctic conference that Obama attended.
