INDIANAPOLIS — Hoosiers unable to obtain public records held by the state or local governments can continue calling on Public Access Counselor Luke Britt for assistance.

Britt recently was reappointed by Gov. Eric Holcomb to serve as the state's primary advocate for government transparency and chief educator on Indiana's Access to Public Records Act and Open Door Law.

He also issues advisory opinions in response to formal and informal inquiries by Hoosiers and government officials seeking to resolve public access and open meeting issues of all kinds.

Britt already is the longest-serving Public Access Counselor in state history after initially being appointed to the non-partisan position in 2013 by Gov. Mike Pence.

His reappointment by Holcomb will keep Britt in the $75,000 a year post until Oct. 31, 2021.

The governor also recently appointed Valparaiso real estate developer and Indiana Republican Party Treasurer Chuck Williams to the board of directors for the Indiana Bond Bank, a quasi-state agency that assists local governments with their borrowing needs.

Williams joins Cynthia Walsh, of Crown Point, president of Walsh Financial Services, who was reappointed by Holcomb to a three-year term as a Bond Bank director.
