Missouri Gaming Director Resigns

Gene McNary resigned from his post as head of the Missouri Gaming Commission last month. His resignation will go into effect July 1, at which time he will be replaced by Roger Stottlemyre, the commission’s current deputy director of enforcement.

“We wanted the transition between executive directors to be seamless,” Jim Mathewson, the commission’s chairman, told the St. Louis Post-Dispatch.

“He has served four years and thought it was time to tender his resignation to provide for a smooth transition,” Gaming Commission spokeswoman LeAnn McCarthy told the newspaper.

McNary was appointed to his position by Governor Matt Blunt. With a new governor in office and two new members on the commission, spokesman McCarthy says McNary saw a “changing of the guard.”
