The fight for transparent government in New Mexico has a new general.

The Board of Directors of the New Mexico Foundation for Open Government announced today the appointment of its next Executive Director, Gwyneth Doland. Doland, a journalist and longtime Albuquerque resident, will take the helm of the statewide non-profit organization Feb. 20.

“I look forward to working with engaged citizens, journalists and business and community leaders to ensure the kind of open and transparent government that is critical to a vibrant democracy,” Doland said.

Doland is currently the producer and host of KNME’s Public Square, as well as a correspondent for KNME’s New Mexico in Focus and an adjunct faculty member at the University of New Mexico, where she teaches multimedia journalism.
