Lane Roberts drops out of school board race, appointed to statewide job
A short while ago, during a news conference in Joplin, Gov. Jay Nixon announced the appointment of former Joplin Police Chief Lane Roberts to the recently vacated position of head of the Missouri Department of Public Safety.
Asked during the news conference if this meant he would be dropping out of the Joplin R-8 Board of Education race, Roberts said he was withdrawing his candidacy.
