Gov. Ed Rendell's chief of staff is taking over as chairman of the Gaming Control Board, and his legislative affairs secretary is assuming the position of chief of staff. Rendell on Friday appointed Greg Fajt to head the gambling agency and Steve Crawford to be his top administrator.

Crawford is a native of Columbia County who's served in the Rendell administration since 2003.

Fajt is a former state representative from Allegheny County and was revenue secretary under Rendell for four years.

The personnel changes were disclosed last month. They took effect Friday.
