New Mexico Lottery suddenly terminates CEO

New Mexico LotteryNew Mexico Lottery: New Mexico Lottery suddenly terminates CEO
51
Rating:

Board provides no explanation for action

The New Mexico Lottery's board of directors has voted to terminate the contract of chief executive officer Tom Romero, effective immediately.

Romero had been the lottery's executive vice president of security since its inception in 1996 and CEO since November 2006.

The seven-member, governor-appointed Lottery Authority Board voted unanimously to terminate Romero's contract Wednesday.

No reason was immediately given for the move and board members declined to discuss the termination after the special session.

In a statement, the board thanked Romero for his many years of "devoted service to the lottery."

      We should have the Pennsylvania Lottery investigated, along with Corbin's personal finances, off shore bank accounts, hidden assets?   Investigate Attorney General!  You HAVE the Power of the People!

          Interesting. He is also chairman of MUSL (Powerball).

          If the chances of winning the jackpot are so slim, why play when the jackpot is so small? Your chances never change, but the payoff does.

          If a crystal ball showed you the future of the rest of your life, and in that future you will never win a jackpot, would you still play?

          Money returned that is less than or equal to the amount wagered should not be considered a "win," but rather a second chance.

                      He probably knows why they showing him the door. I wonder if these CEO's of lottery Commissions get their " Golden Parachute" when they told their services are no longer required?

                          This is New Mexico, not old Mexico below the border. But I get what you mean.

                          Actually, in the old days, if he was doing hanky panky, they'd probably fire the secretary and give him a promotion. Instead, today they say "thank you for your years of service" and let him slip quietly away with a hefty severance package, probably to a high paying job in the private sector with one of the contractors, or possibly run for congress.
