Mississippi gaming commissioners spent the last couple of days in Jackson. They've been sifting through 33 applications, trying to find a new executive director.
As you know, current director Chuck Patton is retiring at the end of the year. Patton has been with the gaming commission for almost a decade. In 1993, he was its acting director. He became the permanent director in 1998, replacing former Keesler General Paul Harvey.
According to commissioners, they'll name Patton's successor at their December 19th meeting.
