The board consists of up to nine members who oversee the Wyoming Lottery Corporation, with each member appointed by the Governor for a four year term.

“Sandi truly represents the spirit of community and brings talent, expertise, and energy to the board. We are very fortunate to have her as we continue to move forward,” said Jon Clontz, WyoLotto CEO.

“I’m very proud to be part of an organization which has given back to the citizens of Wyoming with $4.6 million to be used in the communities on projects that otherwise may not have had funding. The staff and the board for WyoLotto could not be a finer bunch of folks, and it is an honor to serve with them,” Chitwood said.
