TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) Kansas Gov. Sam Brownback has hirred a new chief information technology officer.
Brownback says Monday that Anthony Schlinsog will be the permanent choice for the position. Schlinsog has been interim chief of information technology since November.
Schlinsog was named to the post on an interim basis after Brownback’s first choice for the post resigned when questions were raised about his academic credentials.
Brownback signed an executive order in November requiring the information technology officers from all executive branch agencies, except the Kansas Board of Regents, to report to one information technology official.
Schlinsog previously had been the IT director for the Kansas Department of Transportation.
