Vegas Officials Probed for Accepting Free F1 Tickets

Tick Segerblom

At least four Clark County commissioners are under investigation by the Nevada Commission on Ethics for accepting free tickets to last year’s inaugural F1 Las Vegas Grand Prix, which were valued at $10,900 each.

On Tuesday, Commissioner Tick Segerblom shared on Twitter a letter he received from the ethics commission. Commissioners Ross Miller, Justin Jones, and Jim Gibson confirmed to the R-J that they had received similar notices.

According to the R-J, all seven members of the Clark County Commission, the governing body for the Las Vegas Strip, were offered a free ticket to the race’s Skybox area by F1.

Commissioners Marilyn Kirkpatrick and Michael Naft declined the offer, while Segerblom, Jones, Miller, Gibson, and William McCurdy accepted.

In January, Segerblom described his attendance at the race to the R-J as “educational.” McCurdy echoed Segerblom’s sentiment, stating that it would have been “irresponsible for us to not see how it works.”

Segerblom was the only commissioner who attended the race without listing the tickets on his financial disclosure report. As a result, according to the R-J, his complaint also charges him with insufficiently disclosing the gift.

The Nevada Commission on Ethics is an eight-member panel appointed by the governor and legislative commission to investigate ethics violations by state government officials and employees.
