Democratic nominee Paul Davis has named a dozen new economic advisers for his campaign for governor and is promising to hold summits across Kansas if he’s elected.
Davis held a news conference Thursday in Lenexa to announce the appointments of what he’s calling “economic sector champions” to advise him.
Davis says they’ll hold summits during his first six months in office to discuss economic challenges and opportunities if he unseats Republican Gov. Sam Brownback in the Nov. 4 election.
Brownback spokesman John Milburn said Davis is handing out a list of committee assignments instead of giving voters specific plans for boosting the economy.
Davis’ new advisers include former Westar Energy CEO Jim Haines, former Cessna Aircraft Co. CEO Charlie Johnson and former Kansas Agriculture Secretary Adrian Polansky.
