Gambling official to headline casino talk

Event sponsors include lobbyist

The head of state’s new gambling commission, who earlier promised to avoid association with anyone who has “any vested interest’’ in a casino proposal, will headline a gambling forum next week sponsored by a casino lobbyist.

Stephen P. Crosby, a Beacon Hill veteran and dean at the University of Massachusetts Boston, was tapped by Governor Deval Patrick to lead the gambling commission last month, a position that will entail issuing casino licenses for the new multibillion dollar industry.
