Local residents who want to attend President Barack Obama's inauguration in Washington, D.C., next week can request tickets from Rep. Raul Ruiz, his office announced this week.
Tickets are limited and will be given to residents of Ruiz's 36th Congressional District on a first-come, first-served basis, spokeswoman Whitney Mitchell said. The ceremony is Jan. 21.
To request tickets, email CA36.Inauguration@mail.house.gov by Thursday. Name, address, phone number and number are required. Constituents can request up to two a person, Mitchell said.
Ruiz, D-Palm Desert, took office earlier this month. He beat 14-year incumbent Mary Bono Mack in November.
For more information, call Ruiz's Washington office at (202) 225-5330.
