President Barack Obama is scheduled to arrive in Los Angeles on July 23 to speak at a Democratic National Committee fundraising reception and dinner at the Hancock Park home of television producer Shonda Rhimes. The event’s co-chairs include Kerry Washington, the star of the Rhimes- produced ABC drama “Scandal.”
This is the fourth time that the President has visited Hancock Park for political fundraisers during his Presidency. In that time, the impact on traffic has greatly improved as representatives of the City of Los Angeles, LAPD and the Secret Service have worked to find a balance on street closures. Last November, President Obama visited Hancock Park during the day and the impact was negligible.
This event will have the President arriving during the Wednesday evening rush hour when traffic is at its highest level.
Earlier in the day, he will attend a political fundraiser in Northern California.
As the event approaches, we will share announced street closures.
