Greitens announced today that he picked former University of Missouri linebacker Darryl Chatman, a Democrat from Foristell. He's an attorney and the former deputy director of the Missouri's Agriculture Department.

The governor also appointed his former campaign finance chairman, Jeffrey Layman. Layman is a Springfield Republican and senior vice president with Morgan Stanley. He donated about $10,000 to Greitens' campaign for governor.

The governor's third appointee is Jefferson City Republican Jamie Farmer. She's president of Farmer Holding Company.

The appointees must be confirmed by the Missouri Senate. If all three are confirmed, there still will be two vacancies on the board.
