Harrisburg attorney John McNally III will join the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board as an appointee of House Speaker Sam Smith.

McNally replaces Gary Sojka, a former Bucknell University president who served three terms.

Smith, R-Jefferson County, said he chose McNally to help the industry grow and to provide strict oversight.

A partner in the law firm Thomas Thomas and Hafer, McNally lost a high-profile Senate race in November. He is a graduate of Penn State University and Dickinson School of Law.

The gaming board's seven members, chosen by the governor and legislative leaders, oversee regulatory and legal matters.
