Governor Pat Quinn today made a number of key appointments to the state's boards and commissions. Included in today's action are the reappointments of Judge Aaron Jaffe, Chairman of the Illinois Gaming Board and Michael Holewinski, Vice-Chairman of the Illinois Gaming Board. This announcement continues the Governor's commitment to making Illinois government more accountable, transparent and effective.
"These individuals are committed to serving the people of Illinois on our state boards and commissions," Governor Quinn said. "I am confident these capable people will help make our state an even better place to live and work."
"Just as it is critical to protect the public interest, it is also critical to have strong oversight of casino gambling in Illinois," the Governor added. "The Illinois Gaming Board has served as a strong watchdog for the last two decades and both Judge Jaffe and Mr. Holewinski have done a fine job. I am confident that in their positions they will continue keeping corruption out of the Illinois gambling industry."
As a result of Governor Quinn's efforts to make the executive appointment process more accessible and transparent, residents who are interested in serving on boards and commissions can now apply online.
