The head of the Vermont Lottery Commission is stepping down after nearly 14 years as executive director.
Alan Yandow said Friday that he will not seek another appointment to the position.
Governor Peter Shumlin thanked Yandow for his service saying that all profits from the state’s lottery go to the Education Fund, so an efficient and effective state lottery provides crucial resources for educating Vermont’s students.
The Vermont Lottery says Yandow served as spokesman for the "Good. Clean. Fun" campaign that started in 1999 to show that the Vermont Lottery was run by "real" people, was credible, and should be played for fun, and not out of a need to win.
