Cleveland councilman to become lottery chief

This can't be any worse than another one of Rev. Ted's appointments from N/E Ohio -

The PD Reports:

Mike Dolan, one of Cleveland City Council's most vocal members, is leaving local politics to become Ohio's new lottery director.

Gov. Ted Strickland today appointed Dolan executive director of the Ohio Lottery Commission. In a telephone interview, Dolan said he will make $109,000 in his new job, which is based in Cleveland.

He said he hopes to expand lottery play in the state, in part by targeting residents with more money to spend.

"We're going to try to maximize sales and broaden the focus of the lottery so more people are playing, especially people with discretionary income,'' he said.

Dolan, 45, who has represented Cleveland's West Park neighborhood since 1996, said he will officially resign from council Monday and will appoint a temporary successor. He declined to say whom he will appoint.
