San Francisco’s City Hall reportedly dished out more than $25,000 in tickets to department officials and politicians and their pals for a Jay-Z and Justin Timberlake concert at Candlestick Park.
The San Francisco Chronicle reports that the city's Recreation and Park Department handed its general manager, Phil Ginsburg, and staffers two-thirds of the tickets. Ginsburg told the paper it's long-standing policy. Civic leaders and park stakeholders are often invited to these concerts.
The amount of tickets each supervisor from the department received appeared to have varied. London Breed reportedly received two $250 tickets while Jane Kim was given six luxury box tickets valued at $1,860, the report said. Kim reportedly donated her seats to a housing program.
