Malta residents react to Obama speech location change

MALTA, NY –Saratoga County residents are upset to hear that President Obama
will no longer visit in Malta on Tuesday.

On Friday it was announced that President Obama will no longer visit the
GlobalFoundries facility in Malta and he'll visit the CNSE in Albany. Officials
working with President Obama have not announced why the site was changed.

Many residents in Saratoga County say they were looking forward to the
visit. The visit was a point of pride and put the town in national spotlight.

The visit would have been the first time President Obama visited
GlobalFoundries.

While town officials say they understand, they still wish it could have been
different.
