Governor Parson made the announcement at Bolivar High School in the community where he served as Sheriff; a mere twenty miles from the small farm in Wheatland where he grew up; and just a mile from the small business he started and owned after returning from six years of service in the U.S. Army.

“There’s only one place in the world where someone from a small rural town with modest means could have the opportunities I have had,” Governor Parson said.  “To serve my country in an Army uniform.  To serve my community in a Sheriff’s uniform. To complete my dream of starting and owning a small business.  To enter public service and serve my community and state.  These experiences are only possible in this country under the red, white and blue of the United States of America.”

Governor Parson said he felt the call to serve again to help ensure the American Dream is never out of reach for anyone willing to work for it, regardless of their background or where they grew up.

“That’s why I feel the call to serve again,” said Governor Parson.  “I want to continue to do the hard work.  To make sure everyone has the chance to pursue the American dream.  To move Missouri forward with common sense, with honor and integrity.  And that’s why I am here today, in my hometown of Bolivar – to announce that I am running to be your Governor of the great state of Missouri.”

Governor Parson said more jobs, better pay, keeping taxes low, improving infrastructure, workforce development, improving education are what makes him so passionate about working for Missouri.

The Missouri economy is booming with more than 35,000 new jobs created since he took office with companies like Bunge, Bayer, Briggs & Stratton, CVS, Nucor Steel, Google and others investing in Missouri and creating new opportunities for Missouri workers.

“With record lows in unemployment, more people are going back to work in Missouri,” Governor Parson said.  “Wages are on the rise – in fact we were the top small business wage growth state in the nation.”

Since taking office in June 2018, Governor Parson has:

  • Signed an income tax cut allowing Missourians to keep more of their hard-earned money;
  • Proposed a bold plan to invest $1 billion into new infrastructure in Missouri and then got it done without a tax increase;
  • Ended the pointless border war with Kansas– which had cost Missouri over $325 million dollars; and
  • Shrank the size of the government in Jefferson City, reorganizing one fourth of the entire executive branch and eliminated nearly 500 bureaucrats’ positions that were wasting taxpayer dollars.

Governor Parson said if given the opportunity to continue serving as governor, he would prioritize cutting regulations to re-ignite the manufacturing sector; legal reform to make it easier for job creators; continuing forward momentum with more pro-growth policies that attract new jobs to our state; and ensuring more Missourians have the opportunity to gain the quality education and training they need to fill high-demand jobs across the state.

“I’ve never been afraid of hard work and nobody is going to work harder than I will in this campaign,” Governor Parson said.  “We are at a critical moment.  Now is the time to defend who we are.  Now is the time to come together.  Now is the time to stand up for Christian and family values.  Now is the time to lead with honor and integrity.  Now is the time to stand up for the American Dream.  Now is the time to get to work and to win this election.”

Gov. Mike Parson Files to Run for Re-Election in 2020

Missouri Republican governor, Mike Parson, officially filed to run for re-election as governor in 2020. Governor Parson’s commitment to hard work and focus on key issues, like jobs, education, workforce development and infrastructure – have all led to historic low-unemployment, 40,000 new jobs, lower taxes, and a booming Missouri economy.

“We will continue to work hard for the people of Missouri, in order to make sure everyone has the chance to pursue the American dream,” Governor Parson said. “In the next four years we will continue building upon our successes that make a positive difference for Missourians, including workforce development and infrastructure, and that is why I intend to run for re-election in 2020.”

More jobs, better pay, pro-growth policies, keeping taxes low, rebuilding our infrastructure, workforce development, and improving education have marked Governor Parson’s tenure in office. Since being sworn in on June 1, 2018, Governor Parson has:

· Ushered in new pro-jobs pro-growth policies for Missouri, resulting in 40,000 new jobs, with companies like Bunge, Bayer, Briggs & Stratton, CVS, Nucor Steel, Google and others investing in Missouri and creating new opportunities for Missouri workers;

· Signed an income tax cut allowing Missourians to keep more of their hard-earned money;

· Proposed a bold plan to invest $1 billion into new infrastructure, all without a tax increase to the people of Missouri;

· Ended the pointless “border war” with Kansas – which had cost Missouri over $325 million dollars; and

· Shrank the size of the government in Jefferson City, reorganizing one-fourth of the entire executive branch and eliminated nearly 500 bureaucrats’ positions that were wasting taxpayer dollars.

“It’s an honor and privilege to serve as the 57th governor of our great state,” Governor Parson said, “Throughout my entire life I’ve never been afraid of hard work and we are at a critical moment in our state and country – it’s up to us to defend the American dream.”

Gov. Parson began his commitment to defending the American dream serving six years in the Army as a member of the military police. He later returned to Missouri, serving 22-years in law enforcement, and was elected sheriff of Polk County for twelve years. Gov. Parson has also served his community as a state representative and state senator. In 2016, Missourians elected him to serve as Missouri’s lieutenant governor. He is a third-generation farmer and continues to own and operate a cow-calf operation near his hometown of Bolivar.

The governor has received the following endorsements in support of his campaign: President Donald J. Trump, all of Missouri’s leading agriculture organizations, Missouri Right to Life PAC, Missouri Chamber of Commerce and over 125 elected Republicans.
