  • (AP) — Former Kansas state treasurer Dennis McKinney has a temporary new job in his hometown of Greensburg.
    KSCB radio reports McKinney reached agreement with the city this week to serve 90 days as interim city administrator beginning Jan. 26.
    Greensburg officials are seeking a permanent replacement for city administrator Steve Hewitt, who’s leaving to become city manager in Clinton, Okla.
    Hewitt was a leader in the rebuilding of Greensburg after an E5 tornado struck the southwest Kansas community on May 4, 2007. The tornado killed 13 people and destroyed up to 90 percent of the town.
    McKinney is a rancher and former Kansas House minority leader. He was appointed state treasurer to fill a vacancy in 2008 but lost his campaign for a full term last year to Republican Ron Estes.
