Gov. Sam Brownback on Friday announced the appointment of Gary Hayzlett, Lakin, to a four-year term on the Kansas Wildlife, Parks and Tourism Commission.

Hayzlett served in the state legislature from 1990 to 2012 and held numerous board and committee positions, including the executive council of the national Assembly of Sportsmen Caucus. He is an avid sportsman and wildlife supporter.

The Kansas Department of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism is administered by a secretary of Wildlife, Parks and Tourism and is advised by a seven-member Wildlife Parks and Tourism commission. All positions are appointed by the governor with the commissioners serving staggered four-year terms. Serving as a regulatory body for the department, the commission is a non-partisan board, made up of no more than four members of any one political party, advising the secretary on planning and policy issues regarding administration of the department.
