MADISON, Wis. (AP) - Gov. Scott Walker has shuffled his top communications staff in the governor’s office, moves that come during a relatively slow period in the state Capitol before work on the next state budget begins in earnest.

Walker has brought back former spokesman Tom Evenson who also worked on the governor’s short-lived presidential campaign. Evenson replaces Laurel Patrick, who it was announced Tuesday will be spokeswoman for the state Department of Administration.

Evenson will be working under a new deputy chief of staff for communications, Jack Jablonski. He began the job this week, replacing Jocelyn Webster. She had worked for Walker’s administration since November 2011.

Jablonski worked for Republican state Sen. Sheila Harsdorf, of River Falls, for 10 years before joining Walker’s administration at the Department of Revenue in 2011.
