Brownback Campaign Spokesman Takes Job With Kansas Dept. Of Administration

The spokesman for Governor Sam Brownback's successful re-election campaign has taken a similar job at the Kansas Department of Administration.

John Milburn began work on Monday as the department's communications director.

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.

Milburn is replacing Todd Fertig, who is moving to the state Department for Children and Families.
