Hill open government ‘hero’ recognized

Chestnut Hill Local: Chestnut Hill resident Terry Mutchler, an AP award-winning journalist and the founding executive director of Pennsylvania’s Office of Open Records, is being inducted into the Open Government Hall of Fame, which recognizes long-term contributions of individuals to open government in their respective states.

Mutchler is an experienced trial attorney who was appointed by former Pennsylvania Governor Ed Rendell in 2008 to lead the commonwealth’s newly created Office of Open Records (OOR). During her seven-year term, Terry wrote policies and procedures used today to govern record release for the more than 10,000 units of state and local government subject to the open-government law.
