I have given it much thought and I come to the conclusion that the state of Wyoming can only gain by having a lottery. The biggest reason I can see for instituting a lottery is to keep state money in Wyoming. Right now, Wyoming is losing out to Colorado. Most people are going to spend money in a lottery to pos- sibly have a chance to win the big money. As I am a life- time resident of Wyoming, I would like to see the state use my money in Wyoming. If Wyoming won't elect to have a lottery, I am going to spend my money in Colorado where I have at least .some chance of winning some money. Wyoming could really do well with a lottery. As the popu- lation is smaller, local residents would have a better chance of winning back their money. On top of that, the state would draw a bunch of money from the surrounding states, especially Colorado. All in all, the state really would win no matter what. I personally believe it would be h great boost to Wyoming as the odds would be vastly in favor of the player. A side benefit to the lottery, would be an economic boost. If a person wins anything, they are highly likely to spend most if not all of their winnings. This process could create jobs in the local communities and most certainly at the state level. Wyoming is going to have to raise a committee or some type of commission to oper- ate the games. Of course, when you create one job, you actu- ally create about a dozen in support rolls, I have been informed some of the state representatives voted down an attempt to establish a lottery during the last session. I think that was a mistake and those are the people we need to work on. I personally don't have any preference as to the use of the funds gleaned from the lottery, as long as they are used to benefit Wyoming's people, hopefully in areas where the needs are the greatest. As you have probably noted, I haven't stated any arguments against a lottery. The reason being I can only think of one minor con, and that is a lottery could be considered a form of gambling. That reason is a minor drawback compared to all the pluses. I hope you and I can work together to further this issue and help out Wyoming. Wyom- ing has always been a front runner and trend setter in the United States. If Wyoming could grant women the fight to vote, we can surely handle the vote to start a lottery. Help Wyoming help herself, thank you for your attention.
