TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) – The spokesman for Republican Gov. Sam Brownback’s successful re-election campaign has taken a similar job at the Kansas Department of Administration.
Brownback’s office said Monday that John Milburn began work Monday as the department’s communications director.
Milburn is replacing Todd Fertig, who is moving to the state Department for Children and Families.
The Department of Administration oversees contracting, personnel services and computer systems for state agencies under the governor’s control and manages state office buildings.
Milburn joined Brownback’s campaign in July after working as a Statehouse reporter in Topeka for The Associated Press.
