Taylor Swift sold out her two Santa Clara concerts at Levi’s Stadium last Friday and Saturday night.
And the tickets were really expensive.
Tickets went on sale November 15 at 10 a.m. Within minutes, Ticketmaster had sold out.
Resold tickets were going from $800 to tens of thousands of dollars for good seats.
That wasn’t a problem for Indicted Santa Clara Councilmember Anthony Becker.
Becker bragged about being at the concert on Facebook, according to numerous sources. He also posted a photo from what looks like premium seats.
Becker was the only Councilmember to attend either concert.
Mayor Lisa Gillmor, Councilmembers Suds Jain, and Kathy Watanabe confirmed that they did not attend the concerts.
Councilmembers Raj Chahal, Karen Hardy, and Kevin Park did not respond to Santa Clara News Online inquiries. But sources close to each one confirmed that they did not attend.
Becker frequently complains at Council meetings that he has difficulty affording the high cost of living in Santa Clara.
And he’s currently being represented by a public defender even though he told the Court almost four months ago that he wanted a private attorney.
Becker did not respond to requests for comment.
