Maryland gets new lottery chief
Maryland has a new state lottery official.
Gov. Martin O'Malley announced Friday that Stephen L. Martino will take the helm of the state's lottery agency Monday. Martino served as the executive director of the Kansas Racing and Gaming Commission from May 2005 through this month. A news release from O'Malley's office notes that Martino developed regulatory framework for casino gaming in Kansas, including the opening of the first state-owned casino in the country.
Martino has also been a Kansas special assistant attorney general, where he enforced criminal gambling provisions. He replaces former Maryland lottery director Buddy Roogow, who left the position last year and is now head of the D.C. Lottery.
