Gov. Charlie Baker on Tuesday introduced veteran government attorney Cathy Judd-Stein as the new Massachusetts Gaming Commission chair.
Judd-Stein, of Winchester, has been deputy chief legal counsel in the governor's office since 2015, and previously worked as a legal advisor to Govs. Paul Cellucci, Jane Swift, Mitt Romney, Deval Patrick, and at the state Treasury.
The last chair, Stephen Crosby, resigned from the commission in September.
Crosby, who had chaired the commission since its inception, resigned from the post in September as the panel prepared to make public the findings of its investigation into allegations of sexual misconduct against former casino magnate Steve Wynn and the handling of those allegations by Wynn Resorts, and amid accusations of bias against Crosby.
The commission, which is also exploring a potential casino application process in southeastern Massachusetts, has been getting by since September with four members.
