Congressman Cleaver Welcomes President Obama to Kansas City, Missouri
KANSAS CITY, MO. – Congressman Emanuel Cleaver will join President Obama at the Uptown Theater in Kansas City, Missouri on Wednesday morning. The President comes to Kansas City to speak on the economy and meet with Missourians who have written to him about issues important to them, including student loan debt relief, the economy, and the Affordable Care Act.
“I am pleased the President has returned to Kansas City to talk about our economy, the most important issue for our community and our country,” said Congressman Emanuel Cleaver, II. “I look forward to listening to the President’s remarks. Hard-working families in Missouri’s Fifth District and across our nation demand and deserve a Congress that will work for and listen to them. We need to get past the inaction, our own petty factions and distractions, so we can create jobs, expand opportunity, and strengthen the middle class.”
The event is free and open to the public. Tickets have already been distributed. Remarks are scheduled to begin around 11:00 AM. A video of Press Secretary (and native Kansas Citian) Josh Earnest calling and inviting Missourians to dinner with the President is available here.
Congressman Cleaver will return to Washington on Air Force One with the President following those remarks.
Emanuel Cleaver, II is the U.S. Representative for Missouri’s Fifth Congressional District, which includes Kansas City, Independence, Lee's Summit, Raytown, Grandview, Sugar Creek, Blue Springs, Grain Valley, Oak Grove, North Kansas City, Gladstone, Claycomo, and all of Ray, Lafayette, and Saline Counties.
