(DENVER) -- Kathy Green has been permanently given the job as Gov. John Hickenlooper's spokesperson.
After serving as interim communications director since July, Green has been given the job on a permanent basis, the governor announced Tuesday.
"We were fortunate that Kathy Green joined our team as a interim communications director and during that time we realized we’d be fools to let her go," Hickenlooper said in a statement.
