After Four Months, AG Replaces Open Gov Director

Just four months after she named Robert Nasdor as director of the new Division of Open Government, Attorney General Martha Coakley has named someone new to the post, Britte McBride, formerly an assistant AG in the Attorney General's Policy and Government Division.

The change in command comes one month after the AG took over all responsibility for enforcement of the open meeting law on both the state and local levels.

Tomorrow, the AG's office begins a series of four public hearings on regulations to implement her office's new responsibilities.

I spoke briefly today to McBride, who said she was given the director's position due to her background in policy and government, experience that will be highly relevant to the division's work over the coming months.
