My top priority would be:

-Assess current status of Open Government (2-3 weeks) – whats working, whats not, what projects have most potential

-Lay out his vision and priorities for next 12 months and where he needs help and how folks can help

Lastly – Build the eco-system of resources to get the work done. In the end, you need resources to do anything. Get more detailees, summer interns, and PMF fellows to augment the staff at Open Gov. Advocate for budget in the budget process. Tap into the eco-system of people who want to help whether GovLoopers, folks on listservs like Sunlight Labs, public policy students studying open gov. Make it clear how government employees can help out in 2-3 hours a week as collateral duty
