Arkansas County Native Named to Head Lottery Commission
LITTLE ROCK, Arkansas (February 11, 2012) -- The Arkansas Lottery Commission tonight at 7:45 p.m. named William Bishop Woosley as the new Director of the Arkansas Scholarship Lottery.
Woosley, the Lottery's Chief Legal Counsel since its startup in mid-2009, will be paid $165,000 annually.
Woosley, from Stuttgart, practiced law in his home town and served as Deputy Prosecuting Attorney there prior to joining the Arkansas Attorney General's Office as a Deputy Attorney General. He came to the Lottery from that position.
The decision followed a day-long meeting of the Commissioners with all nine members present. Seven candidates were interviewed on Saturday prior to the Commissioners' deliberations and decision. The appointment is effective immediately.
