Local has impromptu chat with Clintons

Durham resident Doug Forbush submitted this photo of himself, a colleague and the Clintons. With a dash of understatement, he titled it “An interesting day at the office.”

A senior producer/post production manager at the Yale Broadcast & Media Center in New Haven, Forbush emailed that the unexpected encounter with former President Bill Clinton and his wife former Secretary of State Hillary Clinton took place Oct. 5.

“Saturday, I had the opportunity to meet and have a small impromptu discussion with Hillary and Bill Clinton while she was on campus to receive an award at the Law School. It was an unscheduled stop at our broadcast studio. It was very unique in that I spoke briefly with both of them together,” Forbush wrote, adding, “I found it to be quite surreal.”

Forbush said since he, his wife and three children live in Durham, she encouraged him to send in the photo and story as it would be of interest to Town Times readers.
