Sarah Taylor is a veteran public servant. She served eight years as Marion County Clerk in the late 1980’s and early 1990’s. She served as Director of Constituent Services for Mayor Greg Ballard for nearly six years. Now Gov. Mike Pence has given her a new responsibility – Executive Director of the State Lottery Commission of Indiana, the state entity that oversees the operations of the Hoosier Lottery. In her first media interview as Lottery Executive Director, Sarah Taylor appeared on Afternoons with Amos and talked about her new role at the Lottery. Former Governor Mitch Daniels privatized many of the responsibilities of the Lottery to a private company GTech. But Sarah Taylor explained that she and the State are still responsible for overall operation of the Lottery including the security of the process and the games. Taylor talked with Amos and listeners about the Lottery, including the fact that lottery revenues rose in the past 12 month fiscal year that ended in June. She also re-explained to listeners where lottery profits go. And she took calls from listeners who gave constructive feedback on the Lottery and how things could improve.
