Mass. Casino Panel Names Interim Director

The panel overseeing the state's new casino gambling law has selected an interim executive director.

Stan McGee is expected to serve in the post for the next several months until a permanent executive director is named.

McGee is currently assistant secretary of policy and planning for the state's executive office of Housing and Economic Development.

The five-member Gaming Commission also announced at a meeting on Tuesday that it was tapping Elaine Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department, to serve as the panel's full-time communications director.

The commission will eventually select among bidders for up to three resort-style casinos and one slots parlor in Massachusetts, and will regulate the gambling facilities once they begin operations.
