Governor John Kitzhaber has appointed former State Senator Chris Telfer to the Lottery Commission.

 

Telfer says she's one of five members on the board; and one of two CPA's overlooking lottery business.

 

"The focus of the Commission is obviously maintaining the integrity and honest of the games. So we'll be working at that. I also know there's a number of pieces of legislation currently in the works regarding the advertising, it being sensitive to compulsive gambling and how lottery affects that. It’s a great honor and it'll be challenging to balance the financial needs of the state with some of the negative behavior that can be created through gambling."

 

Telfer says the Governor's Office indicated her business background will be a big asset to the commission; and she believed she'll also be on a marketing subcommittee.

 

Her appointment is still subject to Senate approval.
