Avoiding dispute repeat, Fenty delivers Nationals tickets to council -- early

There will not be a repeat of Ticketgate this spring.

Mayor Adrian M. Fenty's administration delivered to D.C. Council members their baseball tickets to Nationals' Park Thursday morning - nearly a month before the team's first exhibition game on April 3.

In the past two seasons, spring was marked by Fenty holding on to the tickets, a rite that irked council members and did nothing to help relations between them and the mayor.

Here is the letter from City Administrator Neil O. Albert.

Duh....It is an election year.

What are those tickets worth anyway? Could they even GIVE them away?

Why do politicians get free tickets anyway? Isn't that unethical, no matter which politician gets them? I have to pay for my tickets.

Isn't that generous of him. Wow! That won't change a thing. I'm thinking about the people who lost their jobs and can't afford to go or take their families to see a baseball game. This is the same stadium their tax dollars supported. That makes him giving the tickets to the council even more meaningless.
