After promising for months to change the tone when he took charge, new Kansas Gov. Jeff Colyer spent his first days in office trying to deliver on that pledge.
He was sworn in late Wednesday afternoon. On Thursday morning, he met with Democratic leaders that his predecessor, Sam Brownback, rarely consulted.
“We’re going to keep that dialogue open,” he said. “We’re going to keep working with people.”
That afternoon, he summoned Statehouse reporters to an already refurbished office for a chat.
