Corbett nominates Trujillo to fill post on PLCB
Gov. Tom Corbett has nominated Ken Trujillo to a spot on the Pennsylvania Liquor Control Board after his term recently ended on the Pennsylvania Gaming Control Board.
Trujillo is a member of Philadelphia law firm Trujillo, Rodriguez & Richards LLC, according to a news release.
His biography on the firm's website also lists service under Democratic leaders, such as Corbett's predecessor, and his public service includes several ethics, oversight and transition team roles.
The nomination comes as high-profile alcohol sales privatization legislation remains before the state House, according to the state's legislative website.
Then-Gov. Ed Rendell appointed Trujillo a commissioner of the Delaware River Port Authority in 2005, and prior to that he was counsel on the executive committee of Rendell's transition team.
As Philadelphia mayor, Rendell named Trujillo to the City of Philadelphia Police Corruption Task Force in 1997.
Trujillo was appointed in 2008 to President-elect Barack Obama's transition team, where he served on the agency review team for the Securities and Exchange Commission, according to the biography.
Liquor control board members must be confirmed by the Pennsylvania Senate.
