PHOENIX (AP) - Gov. Doug Ducey has appointed a new director for the Arizona State Lottery to replace the lottery leader who resigned in January amid questions about his use of a state car.

Ducey named Gregory Edgar to lead the lottery on Friday. Edgar has been running his own strategic communications firm since 2014 and previously spent 20 years as chief operating officer of a Phoenix public relations firm.

Ducey said Edgar has experience in marking, brand development and management and will be an asset to the lottery. The Arizona State University graduate has managed a variety of communications campaigns.

He replaces Tony Bouie, who stepped follows a Phoenix New Times article outlining how he assigned himself a state vehicle and used the car when he wasn’t working.
