Michael A. Fedorko, the former top state police official who has been a member of the New Jersey Casino Control Commission since 1999, is leaving his position on the state’s main regulatory agency to take a job with Port Authority of New York and New Jersey.
Fedorko, whose second five-year term expires in August, would not be eligible for reappointment to the board. He will become director of public safety for the bi-state agency that operates airports and other transportation facilities in New York and New Jersey.
Fedorko, 64, was nominated to the Casino Control Commission by former Governor Christie Whitman. He was with the New Jersey State Police 30 years, including a stint as acting police superintendent. His resignation leaves the Casino Control Commission at three members, two short of its mandate under the law. Governor Jon Corzine has yet to appoint a replacement for Ralph Frulio, who retired from the commission last year.
