Steele: I've had threatening phone calls
Randy Steele, who resigned from the Joplin R-8 Board of Education prior to Tuesday night's meeting, tells KZRG that he quit because of the pressure that was being placed on him. I've had people bring things to my work place; envelopes with letters telling me I need to make sure to vote for a certain person to be put on the board, and if not they'll show up to meetings."
