— Kansas Gov.-elect Sam Brownback's campaign spokeswoman will have the same role in his new administration.

Brownback announced Wednesday that Sherriene Jones-Sontag will serve as communications director and press secretary. She's had the same job with his transition team.

Brownback also announced four other key appointments to his staff. The Republican governor-elect takes office Monday.

Two of the four other appointees already are serving in the same roles on Brownback's transition team. They are appointments director Kim Borchers and scheduler Denise Coatney.

Borchers worked on Brownback's campaign, and Coatney has been his scheduler since 1986.

Brownback is also bringing two people from his U.S. Senate staff to the governor's office. Shawn Cowing will serve as constituent services director, and Jon Hummell will be operations director.

Sounds like small government at its finest.

No ronwell, Washington is huge government. Kansas is not the problem. When a grant is given to a state for say 30 million to Kansas , 20 is eaten up in salaries. Not much goes to Concordia, Great Bend, or Eudora.

Our new Gov. is not giving away dozens and dozens of "fluff" jobs like his predecessor (s). Both Dem and Rep.

If you wish you can look up the staff jobs and salaries.

Give Sam a chance, you may like him.
