First POTUS pool report: Moffett to Atherton

By Josh Richman
Wednesday, May 23rd, 2012 at 7:36 pm in Barack Obama, Obama presidency.

AF1 landed at Moffett Federal Airfield near Mountain View, Calif., a few minutes after its scheduled 6:10 p.m. arrival time, delayed a bit by some weather.

Greeting POTUS at the bottom of the stairs were:
- Col. Steven Butow, Commander 129th Rescue Wing, California Air National Gaurd
- Rep. Anna Eschoo (D-CA)
- Mike Kasperzak – Mayor, Mountain View, CA
- Tony Spitaleri – Mayor, Sunnyvale, CA
- Simon Pete Worden – Center Director, NASA Ames Research Center

POTUS then went to work a rope line of invited guests, Moffett/NASA/AMES staffers and such, before getting into the limo. Motorcade went south on Highway 101 then back up I-280 to Woodside Road exit into Atherton , arrived about 7:10 p.m. at Atherton home of Doug Goldman – software company founder, retired emergency physician, philanthropist and heir to the
Levi Strauss fortune – and his wife Lisa, who are hosting a $35,800-a-head dinner.

Press is holding in an outbuilding. Crosby, Stills & Nash will be performing for guests; we saw David Crosby walk by here a few minutes ago.

    Wow, there’s actually a perk to being mayor of a town like Mountain View…
