Woods to Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board

David Woods is currently awaiting a background check to take his seat as commissioner on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board. He was appointed by Governor Tom Corbett, who names three of seven commissioners to the board. The legislature appoints the other four. The annual salary of a commissioner is 5,000. Terms are three years.

Woods is from Delaware County and has been chief of staff for Dominic Pileggi, the Senate majority leader, since 2006. Prior to Pileggi, Woods was the senior vice president at Exelon. He has also been the chief of staff for Senator F. Joseph Loeper.

Woods will join the board in time to attend hearings regarding the six applicants vying for Philadelphia’s second gaming license. The hearings will take place later this year and the decision will be made next year.
