TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) - New Kansas House Minority Leader Tom Burroughs has filled three staff positions.

Abbie Hodgson will be the Kansas City Democrat’s chief of staff. She is a Democratic activist from Lawrence who worked in the administrations of Democratic Govs. Kathleen Sebelius and Mark Parkinson.

Hodgson ran this year for the House seat of outgoing Minority Leader Paul Davis, who lost the governor’s race to Republican incumbent Sam Brownback. Hodgson lost the Democratic primary to Rep.-elect Boog Highberger.

Burroughs tapped Davis’ campaign staff for two aides.

Shelbie Konkel of Haysville will be communications coordinator for Burroughs after serving as Davis’ deputy finance director.

Jake Miller of Kansas City will be Burroughs’ policy and constituent liaison after working as a regional field director for the Davis campaign.
