Malta residents react to Obama speech location change

Posted:

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.
