Corbett picks top aide for gaming board post

    Gov. Tom Corbett is appointing one of his top aides to take a seat on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.

    Annmarie Kaiser was named Tuesday after serving as Corbett’s first secretary for legislative affairs.
    Kaiser also was Corbett’s liaison to the Legislature when he was state attorney general.

    Kaiser will serve a three-year term on the gambling board, and replaces Kenneth Trujillo, who was appointed by former Gov. Ed Rendell.

    Kaiser becomes the second senior member of Corbett’s staff to end up with a different job since he became governor in January 2011. She will be replaced in Corbett’s office by Christopher Carusone. He is Corbett’s executive deputy general counsel and previously worked in the attorney general’s office.
