President Barack Obama will be coming to the Bay Area next month for a Democratic Party fundraiser with House Democratic Leader Nancy Pelosi and other elected leaders.

The reception and luncheon to benefit the Democratic Congressional Campaign Committee, or DCCC, will be held on July 23 at the Los Altos Hills home of Judy and George Marcus.

George Marcus is the founder of real estate brokerage firm Marcus & Millichap.

The Marcuses met while studying at San Francisco State University in the 1960s, according to SFSU officials. He graduated with a degree in economics.

Other attendees expected to join the president are Pelosi, Congresswoman Anna Eshoo, D-Palo Alto, and DCCC chairman Steve Israel.

An invitation to the event lists ticket prices starting at $10,000 for lunch and a photo.

A $32,400 ticket includes entrance to a VIP reception, lunch and a photo. The presidential reception is scheduled to begin at 10:15 a.m.

Obama was previously in Silicon Valley just last month.

He attended fundraisers and spoke at a Mountain View Walmart about solar energy and jobs on May 9.

Question: Does anyone know if when a President comes into your town, and or surrounding towns and cities, for "fundraising", does the Democratic party reimburse the agencies involved for over time? This was demonstrated to me when he, Obama, was in LAH last time. They must have been paying the city of Los Altos Police Department a fortune in overtime. Not to mention CHP, MVPD, SCCFD, SO, and on and on. I would love to hear if anyone knows the answer to this question .Please.

I sure wish we lived in a world where the President could come visit and wouldn't have to worry about security. Alas, now we'll have to put up with shut streets, blocked freeways, and further inconveniences. And it's all for fund raising?

Someone please tell Mr. Cool to go home. We do not need his arrogant, above it all demeanor around here. Too bad he never understood that you have to do more than fundraise. He play acts as President only. Take back America. Vote GOP.
