Questioning motives

Posted By on Tue, Jun 2, 2009 at 7:20 AM

House Speaker Robbie Wills sends props to his friend Tom Courtway, who dropped out of the race for lottery director yesterday, and now turns attention to others who've applied, particularly those with lottery experience who've applied from out of state

I wonder if the same folks who were so down on Courtway will now turn their attention to the many other “non-industry” applicants who, unlike the handful of applicants who’ve worked for a lottery organization, have the temerity to think they’d do a good job through innate talent and leadership ability.  Or delve into what - or who - inspired the out-of-state lottery candidates to submit their applications.

Sure. Vet them all. But here's an idea on possible inspiration: A $350,000 salary in a low-wage state with relatively cheap housing and low property taxes. That's offensive/defensive coach money. In other words, pretty good dough.
