President Barack Obama will address the nation tonight.

He’s delivering his State of the Union address to Congress and the nation, and there are certain issues local residents are concerned about and want the President to mention.

"Well, jobs. All my kids, they have jobs, but it’s hard to tell how long, " says Dresden resident Mary McCafferty.

"Health insurance, medical care, and things like that, " says Malta resident Heidi Norman.

"Definitely the war. I have a lot of friends in the military. So, I’m hoping he starts pulling them out soon and getting them back home, " says Frazeysburg resident Cef Fracker.

"I’m a very concerned person over the war, and I believe that the men should be over there, and I thank them for being there, " says Chloris Norman.
