A former House Speaker is coming off the Bench

Posted by By at 4 February, at 10 : 16 AM Print

Former State House Speaker Keith McCall’s abrupt retirement looks to be over. McCall is poised to take a seat on the state Gaming Control Board.

Its two year appointment and House Minority Leader Frank Dermody gave McCall the nod, saying McCall’s service to state is of the “highest intergrity.”

McCall’s salary is set at $145K on top of the $90,000 he is potentially, already enjoying from his state pension. McCall served for three decades in the House.

McCall will replace Jeffrey Coy, another former lawmaker. McCoy served the maximum, three terms.

“Keith McCall will be ready to deal with the matters facing the board on day one,” Dermody said in a statement. “He has very little homework to do because he helped to write the law that created this board and he monitored gaming developments closely.

Rock The Capital’s Eric Epstein says its unfortunately what we have come to expect, “If the goal of the caucus was to elevate and reward greed and gluttony, then McCall’s annointment was a smashing success.”
