TALLAHASSEE ― Former U.S. Attorney Pamela Marsh will become president of the First Amendment Foundation on Dec. 1, the open-government group has announced.
Marsh, who served as U.S. attorney from 2010 to 2015 in the Northern District of Florida, will replace longtime FAF President Barbara Petersen, who is retiring.
Marsh is an attorney at the Tallahassee firm Ausley McMullen.
She said in a prepared statement Friday that she is “honored and excited” to join the foundation.
“Perhaps now more than ever, the mission of the foundation is critical to Florida communities and to a thriving democracy,” Marsh said. “Barbara Petersen built her legacy fighting for open access to government meetings and public records, to ensure that the public stays well informed and able to participate in government and be heard.”
