Former Congressman Tim Holden named to PA LCB

(Harrisburg) -- A former midstate congressman is the newest member of the state Liquor Control Board.

The state Senate has voted unanimously to confirm the appointment of former Congressman Tim Holden.

He served for 10 years as a Democratic member of Congress and is also a previous Schuylkill County sheriff.

Republican Governor Tom Corbett picked Holden to be the minority party representative to the three-member board.

Holden is taking the position held most recently by P.J. Stapleton. 

The LCB oversees the state's 600 wine and liquor stores.

Corbett supports privatizing the liquor system, but that idea has been stalled in the Legislature.
