BOSTON (SHNS) – The Cannabis Control Commission will gain two new members when the calendar flips to 2021, but it will come at the Mass. Gaming Commission’s expense.
Gov. Charlie Baker, Treasurer Deborah Goldberg and Attorney General Maura Healey appointed Gaming Commissioner Bruce Stebbins to a five-year term on the Cannabis Control Commission starting Jan. 1, filling a CCC slot that is required to be held by someone with experience in oversight or management in a regulated industry. That’s the seat Kay Doyle gave up in May.
Stebbins was one of the five original members of the Mass. Gaming Commission and has served in that role since 2012. He had previously worked as business development administrator for Springfield, served two terms on the Springfield City Council, worked in former Gov. William Weld’s administration, and was associate director of political affairs in the White House under President George H.W. Bush.
The constitutional officers also tapped Nurys Camargo, AT&T’s director of external affairs in Massachusetts since 2013, to fill the CCC seat required to be held by someone with a background in legal, policy or social justice issues related to a regulated industry. Commissioner Shaleen Title’s term in that role ended Sept. 1, but she is staying on through Dec. 31. Camargo’s term is also for five years.
