Brownback To Name Cabinet Members

KSCB News - December 7, 2010 12:00 am

Kansas Republican Gov.-elect Sam Brownback

is preparing to announce a portion of his Cabinet and staff.

Brownback scheduled a news conference Tuesday in the Statehouse

to announce his selections. His transition team declined Monday to

say which Cabinet posts are being filled.

During his campaign, Brownback said he would focus as governor

on improving the Kansas economy and creating new jobs for the

estimated 100,000 people out of work. The Kansas unemployment rate

was 6.4 percent in October.

Brownback was elected Nov. 2 and will take the oath of office on

Jan. 10. He replaces Democratic Gov. Mark Parkinson.
