President Barack Obama arrived at Moffett Field on Sunday afternoon for a series of fundraising events and to attend a town hall meeting on Monday at Mountain View-based LinkedIn.

Air Force One landed at 5:53 p.m. and was greeted by San Jose Mayor Chuck Reed, Mountain View Mayor Jac Siegel and NASA Ames center director S.P. Worden, as well as around 70 other VIPs.

The plane arrived around 28 minutes late because a previous fundraiser the president attended in Washington, D.C., ran late.

"Putting America Back to Work: LinkedIn Presents a Town Hall with President Obama" will be a forum for a live audience of LinkedIn members and employees -- plus online members nationwide -- to ask the president about job
creation and the economy, according to the White House press secretary's office.

To prepare for Obama's visit, LinkedIn has created an online community centering on job creation and economic issues.

Members of the online professional network are invited to take part in the discussion via this group, where they can share questions and comments for the president.

To watch Monday's live town hall meeting, officials encourage the public to log onto LinkedIn.com or WhiteHouse.gov/live.
