Lenny Klompus, one of former Gov. Linda Lingle’s senior advisers, is taking a job with state House Minority Leader Gene Ward.

Klompus said Monday he will help coordinate communications and policy for the eight-member Republican caucus, which is outnumbered by 43 Democrats.

Klompus previously served as Lingle’s senior adviser for communications since she was elected in 2002, earning $104,000 annually. He said he didn’t know his new salary yet in his position as an administrative services manager.
