TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) The Kansas attorney general’s new chief spokesman is a former state Board of Regents official who also previously served as a top aide to former Gov. Bill Graves.

Brown was Graves’ chief spokesman from November 1999 to February 2002. He was also communications director for the state Department of Health and Environment.
