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.
