TALLAHASSEE — Florida’s most prominent open government group, the First Amendment Foundation, announced its new president Friday after its longtime leader, Barbara Petersen, said she would be retiring from the job earlier this year.
Pamela Marsh, the former U.S. attorney for the Northern District of Florida, will take up the role on December 1, according to the foundation.
The First Amendment Foundation is a Tallahassee-based nonprofit that advocates for open government and lobbies the state Legislature to increase public access to government meetings and records. Both the Tampa Bay Times and the Miami Herald are members of the organization.
