Central Coast congresswoman Lois Capps, D-Santa Barbara, has 198 tickets to President Obama’s inauguration Jan. 21 and is inviting the public to apply to receive one of them.
Capps conceded that she already has more than 198 requests, but wants “to accommodate as many of my constituents as possible. Seeing the inauguration of the president is a wonderful experience.”
