New Jersey CRDA Names New Director

New Jersey Casino Reinvestment Development Authority Executive Director Christopher Howard announced at a public meeting that he will be leaving the post, setting stage for newly appointed Deputy Director Matt Doherty to get a quick promotion.

Howard was appointed by former Governor Chris Christie in 2016, succeeding longtime CRDA head John Palmieri. Doherty was appointed earlier this month by current Governor Phil Murphy.

Doherty, a Democrat, was mayor of Belmar, New Jersey, another shore tourist town. His annual salary will increase from $150,000 to $175,000.
