TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — Governor Sam Brownback has promoted the Kansas Department of Administration's highest-ranking attorney to the agency's top administrative job. Brownback announced Friday that Sarah Shipman will serve as secretary of administration. She's been the department's deputy secretary and chief counsel since March 2014 and joined the agency in October 2011. The department oversees purchasing, upkeep of state office buildings and computer and phone services for state agencies. The department has an annual budget of $147 million and almost 400 employees. Shipman replaces Jim Clark, who retired last month after serving almost two years as administration secretary. Brownback still has another position in his Cabinet to fill with the departure of Commerce Secretary Pat George, who's taking a job as CEO of a nonprofit group providing substance abuse treatment in seven states.
