Local Business Owner Attended Union Address, Shares Experience

By staff Report | Local News
SARATOGA SPRINGS - Marianne Barker, co-owner and vice president of Impressions of Saratoga, attended the annual State of the Union Address as a guest on Tuesday. “Talk about an honor,” Barker said. “It was an amazing experience to be in a place where so much history has occurred.” She said it was both impressive and humanizing to be among a diverse group of people on the balcony listening to the speech with Michelle Obama and her guests, conservative radio show host Sean Hannity and Willie Robertson of “Duck Dynasty” - all of them dispersed in the audience, but nearby. She said that she was glad to hear the President talk about small businesses and the important role they play in the community. Barker was invited by U.S. Rep., D-Amsterdam, Paul Tonko and she will be publishing a blog post detailing her experience at www.impressionssaratoga.com.
