Sen. Webb to Sen. Feinstein: More Tickets for Va. Please
Virginia Sen. James Webb (D) is lobbying for his state to get a larger share of the 240,000 inaugural tickets that have been printed. He sent this letter to Sen. Dianne Feinstein, who is overseeing the inaugural planning committee:
November 13, 2008
The Honorable Dianne Feinstein
The Joint Congressional Committee on Inaugural Ceremonies
Russell Senate Office Building
Washington, D.C. 20510
Dear Madame Chairman:
As you determine how tickets will be allotted to congressional offices
for the Inaugural Swearing-In ceremony, I ask that you consider
Virginia's proximity to the nation's capital and the large number of
federal employees who reside within the Commonwealth.
My office has already received in excess of 26,000 ticket requests from
Virginians, often requesting multiple tickets each, for the Swearing-In
ceremony. It is our hope to accommodate as many residents of the
Capital-area as possible, and I hope you take into consideration our
I appreciate your time and consideration in ensuring a fair and viable
system for Inaugural activities.
United States Senator
