After four years as chairman of the Missouri Southern State University Board of Governors Dwight Douglas stepped down Wednesday, but retained his seat on the board.
In his place, board members selected Rod Anderson of Monett, but as a commenter on the Southern Watch blog notes, this appointment may only be temporary.
Anderson's term on the Board of Governors is scheduled to expire Aug. 30, 2009, according to the board page on the MSSU website.
Of course, Gov. Nixon may reappoint Anderson, and most likely will since Anderson, who was initially appointed by former Gov. Bob Holden, is treasurer of the Missouri Democratic State Committee.
