The Massachusetts State Lottery was established by the legislature in 1971 in response to the need for revenues for the 351 cities and towns of the commonwealth.
To provide an operating structure for the Lottery, the Legislature established a five-member commission that includes the state treasurer as chairperson, the secretary of public safety, the state comptroller, and two gubernatorial appointees.
The Commissioners set overall policy for the Lottery that reflects its statutory mission and vision. They advise and make recommendations to the Executive Director of the Lottery regarding its operation and administration.
