BOSTON (AP) -- The panel overseeing the state’s new casino gambling law has selected an interim executive director.

Stan McGee is expected to serve in the post for the next several months until a permanent executive director is named.

McGee is currently assistant secretary of policy and planning for the state’s executive office of Housing and Economic Development.

The five-member Gaming Commission also announced at a meeting on Tuesday that it was tapping Elaine Driscoll, a spokeswoman for the Boston Police Department, to serve as the panel’s full-time communications director.

The commission will eventually select among bidders for up to three resort-style casinos and one slots parlor in Massachusetts, and will regulate the gambling facilities once they begin operations.
