Arkansas Lottery hires Jerold Fetzer as CFO

Posted By on Fri, Oct 21, 2011 at 11:29 AM

The Arkansas Lottery Commission voted unanimously this morning to offer its CFO job, previously held by Philip Miley, to Jerold K. Fetzer, 61, an accountant and audit partner with Miller and Co. Certified Public Accountants. Unlike Miley, Fetzer is a certified public accountant. Fetzer has accepted the job, which will pay $98,000 a year. Here's his resume. (Miley had been a licensed CPA for years, but his license had lapsed at the time he went to work for the lottery.)

From June 1980 to March 2008, Fetzer was with Alltel, where he was vice present and senior VP for finance. Commissioner Bruce Engstrom said at the meeting he believed Miley "more than capable to take care of the needs" of the Arkansas Lottery.

There were 15 to 20 applicants for the job, interim director Julie Baldridge said.

Miley left the lottery office after it was disclosed that he had not informed the office of a $100,000 penalty assessed the lottery by the IRS. He thought the IRS had made an error. The matter remains in dispute.

    It was not even 24 hours ago that Sophia Said, director of the Interfaith Center; City Director Kathy Webb and others decided to organize a protest today of Donald Trump's executive order that has left people from Muslim countries languishing in airports or unable to come to the US at all — people with visas, green cards,a  post-doc graduate student en route to Harvard, Google employees abroad, families. I got the message today before noon; others didn't find out until it was going on. But however folks found out, they turned out in huge numbers, more than thousand men, women and children, on the grounds of the state Capitol to listen to speakers from all faiths and many countries.
