Worcester City Councilor Proposes City Lotto to Help Fund Schools
(2008-05-13)
(wfcr) - A Worcester, Massachusetts city councilor is suggesting that the city launch its own lottery game to raise money for cash-strapped public schools. District 1 councilor Joffrey Smith wants a scratch ticket game that would be sold only in Worcester.

Smith says he has asked the city manager to file special legislation that would authorize the state lottery commission to allow the game. He doesn't view it as competition for the state lottery.
