Newsom on recipient list for 49ers tickets 

Since The Examiner last reported on the free tickets to events like 49ers games that get handed out to elected officials, filings for previous events have been amended to declare that Mayor Gavin Newsom was also a recipient.

The amended filings, dated Dec. 29, were for the Oct 4 and 11 49ers game. They show that Newsom donated two $98 49er tickets to Tipping Point, a nonprofit, and that Newsom received two $98 tickets for the Oct. 11 49ers game, which he declared were used for “ensuring the officials are familiar with public resources available to city residents.” The amended filings also show Supervisor John Avalos donated two pairs of $98 tickets for both games to a nonprofit.

Rec and Park officials said they were looking into the apparent oversight in the original filings, which are due 30 days after the event takes place.

Since Oct. 11, there have been four more 49ers games where elected officials received tickets.

According to filings for those games, Newsom donated two $98 49ers tickets for the Nov. 12 game to Delancey Street, according to the documents.

Supervisor Sophie Maxwell reported using two $98 tickets to each of the four games for “ensuring the officials are familiar with public resources available to city residents.”

Supervisor Chris Daly reported two $98 tickets for each game as taxable income.

For the Nov. 12 game, Supervisor Ross Mirkarimi reported using two 49ers tickets for “ensuring the officials are familiar with public resources available to city residents,” as he did again for the Dec. 14 game. Supervisor Eric Mar reported using two tickets for the Dec. 14 game to ensure he is “familiar with public resources.”

For each of the games other supervisors donated tickets.
