YONKERS - A Minnesota woman is meeting President Obama after writing him a letter and asking a question about the economy.

Rebekah Erler asked the president why the economy is still not doing well and why more jobs haven't been created. In a White House video, Pres. Obama reads directly from Erler's letter.

Not only did the president respond, but he is now going to Minnesota himself to meet with Erler and her family.

"I think it's going to be wonderful for me to let Rebekah know that not only will I be listening, but that she's not alone out there," the president said.

Some Yonkers residents were asked what they would ask Pres. Obama if they were able to ask one question. One resident said they would ask about preventing wars and another said they would ask about student loans.
