Gov. Ron DeSantis has selected an Orlando airport board appointee to run the state lottery. Earlier today, DeSantis appointed Randall Hunt as secretary of the Florida Lottery.
Owner and chief executive officer of Athletic Apex, a national health and fitness chain, Hunt joins his new post after serving as a board member of the Greater Orlando Aviation Authority. Hunt has been a member of the board since February.
Friday's appointment comes following the resignation of former Florida Lottery Secretary Jim Poppell.
