Matt Perry of Riverside Outfitters will be meeting with President Barack Obama today as he comes to Richmond to host a discussion on economic issues at the Southampton Recreation Association. See what NBC12’s Ryan Nobles wrote on his Decision Virginia blog:
President Barack Obama will meet today with the Perry family during his visit to Richmond. Matt Perry and his wife Stephanie have two children. He is the president of the Southampton Community Association where the event is taking place. He is also the co-owner of Riverside Outfitters, a local company that provides recreation opportunities on the James River.
Perry has actually been a frequent contributor to NBC12 News. We have interviewed him for a number of stories that deal with everything from water levels on the James River, to how his business was given a boost by people choosing to stay close to home for their vacations.
