Open records veteran Hadassah Schloss has been named the new director of open government for the Texas General Land Office.
Land Commissioner George P. Bush announced Schloss’ new role Thursday. Before her promotion, Schloss served as open records coordinator for the agency. She has more than two decades of experience working on state government transparency issues.
“Throughout her distinguished career Hadassah Schloss has demonstrated a commitment to upholding the highest standards of transparency within the people’s government,” Bush said in his announcement.
Among other awards for her open government efforts, Schloss received the Freedom of Information Foundation’s James Madison Award in 1996.
