ALBANY, N.Y. (AP) — The board that will decide where four casinos will go in upstate New York state is getting two new members.

The state Gaming Commission on Monday appointed Dennis Glazer and Kevin Law to the Gaming Facility Location Board.

The board will pick the winning submissions for one of up to four available casino licenses.

Glazer is a lawyer and retired partner at the firm of Davis Polk & Wardwell, where he specialized in corporate law. His wife, Westchester County District Attorney Janet DiFiore, resigned in 2013 as Gov. Andrew Cuomo’s appointed head of the state Joint Commission on Public Ethics.

Law is the president of the Long Island Association, a business organization. He co-chairs the Long Island Regional Economic Development Council and formerly led the Long Island Power Authority.
