Rochester Hills Girl Completes Political Journey By Meeting President

DETROIT (POOL) – A young Michigan girl got a chance to complete her self-made homework assignment … by meeting President Obama in Detroit.

Thirteen-year-old Lilly Arbour from Rochester Hills met President Obama in advance of his Labor Day speech in Detroit.

The meeting with President Obama finally completes her journey of meeting all of her 115 elected officials.

Arbour had attended the State of Union in January with U.S. Rep. Gary Peters and met Vice President Joe Biden, making it to 114 out of 115.

Now Peters helped her meet the president before he addressed the enthusiast union crowd near GM’s Renaissance Center.

Obama signed a white paper with the list of her 115 elected officials. “Lilly – Dream Big Dreams,” he wrote before his signature.

Asked what she thinks about returning to school and saying she spent her summer meeting the president? “Great!” she said.
