Two state fair managers have been disciplined for their roles in improperly gifted beer tickets, according to a summary judgment from the Executive Ethics Commission.
Illinois State Fair Manager Amy Bliefnick, who was suspended for two days and fined $1,000, is said to have accepted over $500 in free beer tickets from vendors.
The judgment issued late last week says Bliefnick gave those tickets to employees of the Department of Agriculture.
Meanwhile former DuQuoin State Fair manager John Rednour was fined $5,000 for accepting several thousand beer tickets from vendors. Rednour was asked to step down from his position.
