Massachusetts Gaming Commission names interim chairperson

22 March 2024

(PRESS RELEASE) -- The Office of Governor Maura Healey announced the appointment of Commissioner Jordan Maynard as Interim Chair of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission (Commission) today, following the announced retirement of Cathy Judd-Stein. Maynard was appointed Commissioner in 2022 by a joint appointment of Governor Charlie Baker, then-Attorney General Healy, and Treasurer Deb Goldberg.

“I am honored that Governor Healey and Lieutenant Governor Driscoll have entrusted me with this responsibility and thank my fellow commissioners, who are essential to the continued success of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission, for their partnership and support,” said Commissioner Jordan Maynard. “Since beginning as a commissioner, I have been consistently impressed with the level of professionalism and expertise displayed by the Commission staff. Without this committed team, commissioners would not be able to execute our responsibilities. We will lean on their experience and judgement as we continue addressing the issues facing the Massachusetts gaming, horse racing, and sports wagering industries. I look forward to working with our licensees and stakeholders to continue prioritizing consumer protections and responsible gaming.”

“Since joining the Commission, Jordan Maynard has proven to be a leader in this space. He has worked with people across the gaming industry and has helped oversee Massachusetts gaming regulations. We are grateful for his service as he takes over as Interim Chair and look forward to working with him more closely,” said Governor Maura Healey. “In the meantime, we continue our search for a permanent chair.”

“We are thankful for Jordan’s leadership as he steps into this new role as Interim Chair of the Massachusetts Gaming Commission,” said Lieutenant Governor Kim Driscoll. “His track record speaks for itself and we are grateful for his continued service.”

The Commission consists of five full-time commissioners, one appointed by the governor, one appointed by the attorney general, one appointed by the treasurer, and two appointed by a joint appointment of those three officials.
