Kansas Senate President getting new chief of staff

July 7, 2011


— Kansas Senate President Steve Morris will be getting a new chief of staff next month.

The Hugoton Republican says Joshua Lewis will replace Michael White as his top aide on Aug. 15.

White is leaving to become manager of state governmental affairs for ITC Great Plains, an electric transmission company. White will oversee the company's lobbying in Kansas and Oklahoma.

Lewis served this year as chief of staff to Senate Ways and Means Committee Chairwoman Carolyn McGinn. But he recently joined the Senate president's staff to help with work on redistricting issues.

Lewis also is a former staffer for Kansas Congresswoman Lynn Jenkins.

Poor impovershied Michael White was simply EXPLOITED by the state of Kansas legislature given he was only given $286,075.87 from 2007- - - - - 2010. In 2007 he was a field slave and only was given enough money to purchase lard and corn meal: $51,546.15. He musta really toted some 'cuz in 2008 he was given $60,906.24. He moved from the field to the house in 2009 and did his duty to the tune of $87,133.16. He messed up in 2010 it seems because he only got $86,490.32. He probably was going to be sold, so he done runned away now. That Kansas Legislature sure is one miserly outfit. Miserly and mean.

NIce to see some sanity headed Morris' way. Lewis will be a welcome addition. Too bad for White, though, since the bottom is about to drop out of ITC's finely feathered nest.
