Cameron County Man Named To Gaming Control Board

Senate Republicans name Cameron County commissioner Tony Moscato to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board

KARI ANDREN, The Patriot-News By KARI ANDREN, The Patriot-News

State Senate President Pro Tempore Joe Scarnati, R-Jefferson County, named Tony Moscato as the Senate Republican appointee on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

Moscato, a four-term Cameron County commissioner and former staffer in the lieutenant governor's office, will begin his two-year term on Feb. 14.

The Gaming Control Board is composed of seven members: one appointed by each legislative caucus (House and Senate Republicans and Democrats) and three appointed by the governor. The post carries a salary of $145,000. More...

First question: how many were interviewed for this and what qualifications were considered?

Second question: what does that $145,000 plus benefits work out to per-hour?

Funny how this same senator was talking about how the state was going to tighten its belt and show more responsibility in handling taxpayers' money. There's not enough state funding to help senior citizens who are living in poverty with an occasional Meals on Wheels, but there's enough to give this politico $145,000 plus bennies.

Hmmm.....

This is the same guy that sat on the NorthCentral board. The same board that wouldn't disclose salaries to the public.He'll fit in with the fat cats very well. He's a yes man all the way!!!!!!!!!

This is a board formed by appointed members...it is not a job open to interviews. Slot machines alone net the state of PA more than a billion dollars a year. The post salary is paid out of gaming proceeds....not taxpayers money.

I don't know Tony, but $145K isn't a lot when you consider some politicans are not always under steady employment. by the time you put a little in the bank for the dry spells and buy some suits, there is just an average wage left. If you want his salary, get your butt to Harrisburg and get involved.

Dear Haywood, the master of condescension and rationalization. If the slots revenue were not stuck in the back pockets of these politically connected cronies, then more of it could go to the senior citizens and others who are already getting the short end of the stick from our state. You say it is not "open to interviews." What you mean is that interviews are not LEGALLY REQUIRED. Yes, I agree, indeed, the political hacks have the right to stick their old Republican cronies like Six-Figure Tony in that patronage job. The fact that it is LEGAL doesn't make it RIGHT.
