PA Dems question choice for lottery

January 15, 2014

HARRISBURG, PA — The House Democratic Leader Frank Dermody, Democratic Whip Mike Hanna and Appropriations Committee Democratic Chairman Joe Markosek are disappointed by Gov. Tom Corbett’s selection of a Harrisburg insider for the crucial post of Pennsylvania Lottery executive director.

Corbett on January 10 named Silvan B. Lutkewitte as the new leader of the Pennsylvania Lottery. He is a Dauphin County entrepreneur who has served in a part-time state regulatory review position for the last four years.

“Mr. Lutkewitte did important work and served honorably on the Independent Regulatory Review Commission,” said Dermody, “But that limited experience does not prepare him to oversee a multi-billion dollar statewide lottery.”
