Atherton apparently not on Obama's circuit, but Woodside may be

 

Rumors that President Obama would be stopping by Atherton during his Bay Area visit today (Feb. 17) are apparently unfounded.

However, there are other reports that he might make a stop in Woodside. If so, that could result in the closing of parts of Interstate 280 near or during the rush hour.

The White House says the president is due to arrive at San Francisco International Airport at 5:45 p.m. and will meet with business leaders at 6:45 p.m. at an undisclosed private residence.

With respect to Atherton, Police Chief Mike Guerra said that no roads would be closed off in the town and no presidential visit is in the cards.

He said that, in connection with the president's visit, one police officer from Atherton's force would help staff a police unit in Redwood City or Millbrae as part of a mutual aid agreement with other Bay Area jurisdictions.

Below are the guests expected to dine with Obama tonight. Many are residents of Atherton or Woodside:

- John Doerr, partner, Kleiner Perkins Caufield & Byers

- Carol Bartz, president and CEO, Yahoo!

- John Chambers, CEO and chairman, Cisco Systems

- Dick Costolo, CEO, Twitter

- Larry Ellison, co-founder and CEO, Oracle

- Reed Hastings, CEO, NetFlix

- John Hennessy, president, Stanford University

- Steve Jobs, chairman and CEO, Apple

- Art Levinson, chairman and former CEO, Genentech

- Eric Schmidt, chairman and CEO, Google

- Steve Westly, managing partner and founder, The Westly Group

- Mark Zuckerberg, founder, president, and CEO, Facebook
