Arizona Gov. Jan Brewer’s office reports that she spent close to $65,000 on her Jan. 3 inauguration at the State Capitol.
Brewer’s office says the expenses included $24,372 for overtime and regular pay for Capitol Police officers and General Services Division employees.
Other major expenses included just under $6,000 for printing, $6,200 for rentals of tables, chairs and tents, and $13,100 for souvenir inauguration coins.
The governor’s office says the expenses are being paid from an inauguration fund. Details on donations to that fund haven’t been released.
The midday inauguration was held on the plaza in front of the Old Capitol. A reception was held afterward in nearby Wesley Bolin Memorial Plaza.
