ANNAPOLIS, Md. (AP) — Top aides to Gov. Martin O’Malley and a lawmaker bought six of the eight Super Bowl tickets O’Malley had access to because the governor has a skybox at M&T Bank stadium.
Raquel Guillory, an O’Malley spokeswoman, said Wednesday that Stephen Neuman and T. Eloise Foster bought four of the eight tickets. O’Malley and first lady Catherine Curran O’Malley also bought two.
Neuman is O’Malley’s director of public affairs. Foster is the governor’s budget secretary.
Guillory also says Delegate Shawn Tarrant, D-Baltimore, bought two tickets. Tarrant said in an interview Wednesday he ended up giving the tickets to a family friend due to the expenses associated with going to the game.
Guillory says the tickets were all paid for from personal funds.
The tickets ranged in cost from $950 to $1,250.
