Former board member selected to replace Massey

Tuesday, January 22, 2013

HOLCOMB, Mo. ---- On Thursday, Jan. 17, the Holcomb School Board members gathered to hold interviews for a replacement member for the remaining term of Keith Massey. Massey turned in his letter of resignation in November.

The board members interviewed three individuals, who could possibly fill the position for the remainder of the term, which has approximately 15 months remaining. The three interviewed included; Michael Vance, Gary Brown, and Danny Broglin.

Following the interviews, the board selected Broglin to fill the vacant position.

Broglin, who previously served on the Holcomb School Board, is no stranger to the Board of Education. He remained on the school board for approximately 21 years, and previously served as the president on the board.

Massey resigned from the board after he was arrested on drug charges in May 2012 when law enforcement officials searched his home and found more than 320 grams of marijuana in his possession as well as to what appeared to be a personal marijuana cigarette located in a storage room in the carport area of his home.

He was arrested on site and transported to the Dunklin County Justice Center where he was officially charged and booked on the two counts.

Massey posted a bond of $25,000 a few days later and was released.

In November 2012, Massey entered a guilty plea and was sentenced to five year in the Missouri Department of Adult Institutions. The sentence was suspended in favor of five years supervised probation with special conditions.

I guess being a school board member helped. I agree with the courts decision. If he had a clean record, this was a good verdict. Not because he was a school board member.
