Howdy CA Lottery players. A bright thought just struck me. Todd would be a perfect Commissioner for California Lottery. He is bright, aggressive and would make us all California lottery players happy. Please write suggestion to our beloved Governnor:  http://www.schwarzenegger.com/  Todd may not want to move to the Golden State, but maybe they can convince him with the right amount of dineros, or California gold coins. Sacramento is not such a bad area to live. Close to all types of recreatiional activities, besides Reno is not too far from Sacto. I certainly will write to my Gov and suggest and improvement over what we have had for a Commissioner over the years.

    Want to know the first thing I'd do?  Look to get rid of the computerized drawings! Big Grin

    Personally, I think the excitement generated by the media event of regular drawings, conducted in a roadshow around the state would make things really click for the state (or any state, for that matter).  I think lotteries these days think about cutting costs as the best way to raise more money for the state, rather than focusing on the revenue side of the equation.

    I guess I'd have to compete with Dawn Nettles (Texas) for the title of best lottery consumer advocate!

      Wow Todd, You are receptive. You have some great ideas how to reform CA lacking lottery sales. Also get rid of that Horse race lottery. Start a Pick-4 game, and Daily Keno game. How about a twice a day Fantasy-5 game? Allow CA residents to play on line. That traveling ball drawing is an excellent idea. I will certainly E-Mail our Gov and suggest you as our next, permanent Lottery Commissioner. Please, other lottery players do the same. You don't have to be a CA resident to ring our Gov's bell. Let's all get involved. But the main question would be, what will happen to Lottery Post Forum. Perhaps Todd has a second in command who can take over. Will there be a conflict of interest? Let the legal beagels decide. Todd, I will even visit you in Sacramento. Please send me your last name via E-Mail directly to me. Would not look good if I only told Arnold to consider 'Todd' for the position.

        So far Todd has wanted to stay "Private" and I think that it might be best for him to stay like so, unless he knew for sure that he would get such a position.

          Todd, I think you would be a good Lottery commissioner. If the CA governor appoints you as lottery commisioner, I would recommend you to eliminate the computerized drawings from every CA game. In Daily Derby, the horse race will be computerized, but the three digit race [Example: 1:40.00 to 1:49.99] should be in a ball machine like Daily 3 and Midday 3. What do you think Todd of my suggestion?

            Yes, I think I've already addressed that point above.  I had started this anti-computerized drawing thing long before you became a member here.
