Statement by Senate Majority Leader Jake Corman on Erik Arneson’s Service to the Senate

In his 18 years here, Erik Arneson has left his mark on the Senate in many ways, not just as a spokesman but as an advocate for making our operations more open, accessible and responsive to the media and citizens.

He oversaw our communications and social media efforts, played a key role in the development of the Open Records Law, and led a multi-year process to overhaul the General Assembly’s website, earning us an “A” rating from the Sunlight Foundation.

Erik is a dedicated public servant who performed his duties with a level-headed and good-natured professionalism that will be missed. We wish him well in his new position as Executive Director of the Office of Open Records.
