Lottery CEO Releases Salary

AP 5-26,2015

The Wyoming Lottery Corp. has released the salary of CEO Jon Clontz after initially declining to do so, but still refuses to disclose how much it pays other employees.

Clontz earns $181,500 a year as chief executive of the Wyoming Lottery Corp.

The Star-Tribune requested the compensation for all Wyoming Lottery executives and board members on April 22. The lottery is adamant that the other compensation requested must remain secret for competitive purposes.

WyoLotto Board Chairman Brian Gamroth tells the Star-Tribune that internal policy doesn’t allow release of employees’ salaries.

WyoLotto began selling tickets Aug. 24. After a bank loan is paid off, net proceeds are to be distributed to cities, towns and counties, along with an education fund.
