I think your criticisms and mine are the same.  I think we're both saying she lacks the industry knowledge that is necessary.

I have no idea she made such an ignorant statement as she did about the Pick 3 game.  I used "ignorant", not "stupid", because that's exactly what that comment is.

I think it's great to have "watchdogs", and there are a lot of people who have been helped by many of Nettles' actions.  But I think I have voiced my problems with her as well.  She's not all-bad and she's not all-good.  Somewhere in between.  And I hope she gets the job -- it would be SO interesting to watch.

I hope that she doesn't get it (and I'm positive she won't). I'm a proud TEXAN and I'd hate that have her representing the great state of TEXAS at a MegaMillions Directors meeting. Nothing personal against Ms Nettles, I just think that she has a talent for being a lottery watchdog, so she should stick to doing just that. You can't be a true watchdog if you are an insider. Truth-be-told, the lottery is part politics, so whoever gets the job will be an ally of the current  "establishment". That's just how politics work, in TEXAS and everywhere else...
