Director of D.C. Lottery, manager of city's sports betting operation, resigns

The executive director of the D.C. Lottery stepped down from her position Friday, citing family issues she needs to handle.

“Due to unforeseen personal issues, it has become necessary that I permanently return to my home state of Massachusetts to best support mounting family needs,” Beth Bresnahan wrote in her resignation letter submitted in January.

Ms. Bresnahan was appointed to the top role in 2018 and said “it has been an honor” to lead the agency. The news was first reported by WAMU journalist Tom Sherwood.

Her departure comes roughly one week after Jeffrey DeWitt announced his resignation as the city’s chief financial officer.
