Hillary Clinton will be in Atherton Feb. 21

Campaign fundraiser billed as a "Conversation with Hillary for Young Leaders and Women in Tech"

February is proving to be a busy month for high-profile visitors to Atherton: the star-studded Super Bowl party of Feb. 6, a political fundraising visit from President Barack Obama on Thursday, Feb. 11, and, on Feb. 21, a visit by Democratic presidential candidate Hillary Clinton for a campaign fundraiser billed as a "Conversation with Hillary for Young Leaders and Women in Tech."

Revisions made last year to Atherton's special events permit process mean the hosts, not the taxpayers, are responsible for paying for special services police or other town departments provide for the events.

The event for Clinton will be at the home of Sukhinder Singh Cassidy, founder and CEO of Joyus, an online retailer.

An email invitation to the event says it will be "for a conversation on issues that women face in the Silicon Valley and business around the country."

Tickets range from $500 for those under 35 and $1,000 for those over (for the general reception) to $27,000 for hosts of the event.

I noticed that there are PA Police "No Parking" signs on many random blocks/streets in Palo Alto. They all seem to restrict parking Feb 11 from 5AM to 2PM. I thought Obama was only going to Atherton. Does anyone know what the no parking signs are for?
