TOPEKA, Kan. (AP) — The Kansas court system’s public information officer plans to retire next month after more than 32 years in the job.
Ron Keefover disclosed his plans in an email to the state Supreme Court, which released it Wednesday. His last day is Sept. 13.
Keefover was a longtime courts reporter for The Topeka Capital-Journal when he took the newly created job with the judiciary in March 1981.
In his email, Keefover praised the Kansas courts for initiatives aimed at promoting openness, including a policy of allowing cameras and electronic devices in courtrooms.
