Free tickets to see President Obama at the Dale Mabry Campus of Hillsborough Community College are available for pickup today.

Tickets will be distributed on a first-come, first-serve basis at these locations:

  • Ybor City, 1702 North 14th St.
  • St. Petersburg, 951 Central Ave., Suite A
  • Riverview, 11215 Bloomingdale Ave.

The President will make the campaign stop at the campus gymnasium on Friday, June 22.  Doors open at 1 p.m.  and Obama is scheduled to speak sometime in the "late afternoon," according to the press release.
The Obama Campaign is calling it a "Campaign Grassroots Event." From the press release:

At the event, President Obama will continue to outline how far we’ve come and the clear choice that voters face in this election: whether we continue to move our country forward by creating an economy that’s built to last based on a strong, secure middle class, or go back to the same failed policies that led to the financial crisis that left middle-class Americans struggling to make ends meet.
