NEWS RELEASE ISSUED BY THE OFFICE OF KANSAS GOVERNOR SAM BROWNBACK
Kansas Lt. Governor Colyer named to RLGA Executive Committee
Topeka – The Republican Lieutenant Governors Association (RLGA) announced last week it has appointed Kansas Lieutenant Governor Jeff Colyer, M.D. to its 2014 RLGA Executive Committee.
“I am honored to join my fellow Republican Lieutenant Governors from across the country to advocate for policies that are important to each of our states. I look forward to continuing to work with the rest of the RLGA Executive Committee to bring the principles of low taxes, smaller government, and increased personal freedom to our states,” Lt. Gov. Colyer said.
Forty-five states have Lieutenant Governors. Republicans currently hold 13 of the 19 independently-elected positions and 15 of the 26 team-elected/appointed seats.
"I'd like to congratulate Lt. Gov. Colyer for again being named to the RLGA’s Executive Committee,” Governor Sam Brownback said. “Jeff has been a great partner in our work to grow the Kansas economy and create private sector jobs. He works hard every day on behalf of all Kansans."
The RLGA is part of the Republican State Leadership Committee, the largest caucus of Republican state leadership in the country.
