Casino Commission Names Director
Members of the Casino Control Commission have picked Matt Schuler to be its first executive director after failing to lure prospects now holding similar positions in other states.
Schuler is the chief of staff for the Republican Ohio Senate President Tom Niehaus. Casino commission chairwoman Jo Ann Davidson says that while Schuler has no direct experience with the gaming business, he has been involved with drawing up the state’s casino regulations from the start.
That’s not enough for Ohio Democratic Chairman Chris Redfern, who calls Schuler “just flat-out not qualified” to run the casino commission.
