Gov. Sam Brownback's spokeswoman is stepping down within days, ahead of his anticipated departure.
The governor announced Melika Willoughby's resignation today as communications director, effective Friday. She'll become vice president of communications and strategic development for Forge Leadership Network, which identifies and mentors young conservatives.
Willoughby joined Brownback's office in 2014 as deputy communications chief. She's been part of his senior staff since November.
