Kansas Secretary of Labor Lana Gordon

By Greg Janetka

TOPEKA, Kansas: The Kansas State Senate unanimously confirmed Lana Gordon as the state's Secretary of Labor on February 7. Gordon had been serving as interim secretary since September 2012 when Gov. Sam Brownback (R) asked Karin Brownlee to step down for undisclosed reasons.[1][2][3]

Brownlee said she did not leave the position voluntarily and did not sign a letter of resignation. "I think the governor and I measure performance in different ways. It's hard to understand," she stated.[4]

Gordon is a former Republican member of the Kansas House of Representatives. She represented District 52 from 2001 until her appointment to the department of labor by Gov. Brownback on September 20, 2012.[2]
