Businesses in Annapolis near where President Barack Obama met with Senate Democrats on Wednesday said road closures for security were affecting them, with some shutting their doors. "I had to shut down until 2. Nobody can get in," said Riccardo Santoro, owner of Varuna Aveda Salon Spa in the Park Place complex, adjacent to the meeting. He said the closing, due to the expected traffic woes, was his decision — and he expected to lose about $1,200 in revenue. City streets closed right around Westgate Circle, where the Westin Annapolis hotel is located.
