Governor-elect Wolf Statement on Director of the Office of Open Records Appointment

January 09, 2015 by Wolf Transition Press

York, PA - Today, Governor-elect Wolf released the following statement regarding Governor Corbett's appointment of a new director of the Office of Open Records:

"Today's appointment of a director of the Office of Open Records was rushed through at the last minute after months of politically motivated delays. In addition to making this appointment just nine days before Inauguration Day, it was also done behind closed doors.

"I have the utmost respect for Erik Arneson. This is not about Mr. Arneson, but rather about the process. I am very concerned by the process Gov. Corbett used. It is important to me that every Pennsylvanian has good reason to trust the government that serves them. These are the types of actions that make people legitimately concerned about their government."
