Governor selects new Wyoming public records ombudsman

Gov. Mark Gordon has tapped his constituent liaison to serve as Wyoming’s next public records ombudsman, his office announced.


Darlena Potter had served in the liaison role since September 2019. She has previously worked in state and local government, the governor’s office said.

In her new role, she will attempt to resolves challenges over the timeliness of records production or claims by an agency that records are exempt from disclosure.
