"The Lottery Commission thanks Alan for his 14 years of exceptional service to Vermont," said Martha O'Connor, chair of the Vermont Lottery Commission.  "After the nationwide search, we are pleased to be moving forward with the appointment of Greg Smith."

"I am honored to have been chosen for the job and look forward to the challenge of leading the Vermont Lottery," said Smith.

    They probably sell tickets to supplement the maple surple sales.

    And that makes me wonder...

    If people from Wisconsin are Cheeseheads - are people from Vermont Surpleheads?

      wow... the last executive director made it 14 years.  He must have done something 'not wrong' to have held the post for so long...
