HARRISBURG, Pa. (AP) - The chairman of the Pennsylvania Turnpike Commission is leaving to join the state’s casino regulatory agency.

Sean Logan issued a news release Thursday saying he’s departing the $28,500-a-year position “to pursue other public-service opportunities.” The Pittsburgh Post-Gazette (https://bit.ly/2leHDa4 ) reported that Democratic state Sen. Jay Costa appointed Logan to the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board at a salary of $145,000. Logan replaces Greg Fajt, who served the maximum number of terms.

Logan was named to the five-member turnpike commission in 2013. He became chairman of the 552-mile toll road system in early 2015.

He also served three terms as a Democratic state senator and is a former mayor of Monroeville.

A replacement must be nominated by Democratic Gov. Tom Wolf and confirmed by a two-thirds vote of the Republican-controlled Senate.
