Tallahassee, FL - Attorney General-Elect Pam Bondi today announced the appointment of Pat Gleason as Special Counsel for Open Government.
“Pat is a leading authority in our state on open government and public
records, and I am honored to have her join my administration,” said Bondi. “We have worked together for over a decade, and I have the highest respect for her work ethic, integrity and the transparency she brings to the government process.”
