Reynold Meyer was appointed to the State Plant Board. He will be replacing Robert Campbell who resigned in February after a social media post of him went viral. Meyer’s appointment expires March 17, 2021.
LITTLE ROCK, Ark. — A State plant board member has resigned his post for a social media post he made earlier this week.
On Tuesday, Robert Campbell posted on his twitter page a video that shows him drinking and driving. You can watch the video below.
He also uses some crude language in his video. When asked about him drinking alcohol while operating a vehicle he said that he was in a farm field.
His position with the Plant Board is Governor appointed so we reached out to Governor Asa Hutchinson for a response on the matter.
“Mr. Campbell understands that this was a serious error on his part and based upon that he submitted his letter of resignation from the Plant Board. Such conduct is unacceptable and I have accepted his resignation.”
Campbell had been on the Plant Board since August 25, 2015.
