Tom Neer, who served as the St. Charles County Sheriff from 2005 through Dec. 31, 2014, has been appointed to the Missouri Gaming Commission by Gov. Jay Nixon.

Neer, a Democrat and native of St. Charles, joined the sheriff’s department as a deputy in 1974, working his way through the ranks as a sergeant, lieutenant and captain before being elected sheriff. His experience includes professional law enforcement training on the local, state and federal level.

The governor, on Jan. 7, appointed Neer for a term ending April 29, 2017; however, his appointment and those of three other commission members are subject to Missouri Senate confirmation.

• Leland M. Shurin (D), of Kansas City, for a term ending April 29, 2017.

The Gaming Commission enforces the statutes and regulations relating to charitable bingo and riverboat gambling. It’s executive director is William Seibert, a former Highway Patrol trooper and former acting police chief of O’Fallon.
