State leaders on the Governor’s decision to reopen the State on May 4th.

Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe:I know people are ready to get back to work, they’re ready to get out and prove that Missouri knows how to show the rest of the country how we can do this safely… Governor Parson has laid out a great step with his four pillars of his plan that would allow Missourians to open up and get the economy moving again, all while keeping an eye on public safety.” (KZRG Morning Newswatch, 05/04/2020)

 

We are the Show Me State, and we are going to show the country how you can come out of this and get our economy going, get people back to work, and do it in a safe fashion that protects the health and safety of each other.” (Wake Up Columbia 93.9 The Eagle, 05/04/2020)

 

Treasurer Scott Fitzpatrick:It’s been a tough situation for everybody… Small businesses in particular, and Governor Parson has taken a data drive approach, spending one hundred percent of his time managing this from a state level.” (Pete Mundo Morning Show KCMO Talk Radio, 05/04/2020)

 

State Representative Nick Schroer:When you look into the beginning of this pandemic, Governor Parson and his administration have been very open and have taken critical steps to protect the health and wellbeing of Missourians… We are going to make our economy and our state great again.” (The Tim Jones Show 97.1 FM, 05/03/2020

 

State Representative Mary Elizabeth Coleman:I am really pleased that because of Governor Parson’s leadership and because of everybody doing what they did, we’ve got this data driven approach to be able to reopen the state… Much of the state has decided to follow Governor Parson’s plan of getting things reopened, not immediately back to normal, but in this sort of staged approach…”  (The Marc Cox Morning Show 97.1 FM, 05/04/2020)

 

State Representative Hannah Kelly:Everyone made the decision that they thought was best for them, while following under the umbrella of the stay at home order. I think that, in a beautiful way, spoke to what the Governor has done to endeavor through all of this unknown and unchartered water that we’re walking through together to make sure that he keeps in mind with his decision making that Missouri is a diverse state…  Vice President Pence remarked the other day that Missouri is leading the way, that we’re fulfilling our Show Me title with the plan that Governor Parson is laying out.” (Digging In with Missouri Farm Bureau Podcast, 04/30/2020)

 

Executive Director of the Missouri Republican Party, Jean Evans:One of the things about our Governor is that he definitely trusts local leaders to make good decisions for themselves. From the get go, he has taken a very aggressive approach to dealing with this. I know Governor Parson pretty well… He is somebody who doesn’t react, he responds. He looks at all the information, talks to the experts and comes up with a plan. I think in this situation, his early actions really helped us…” (Mark Reardon Show KMOX-AM, 05/04/2020)

 

Missourians everywhere are tired of being labeled and dismissed by liberal news outlets

Missourians everywhere are tired of being labeled and dismissed by liberal news outlets

At a time when Missourians are coming together like never before, there are still some who want to use this crisis to divide us.

No matter where you live in our great state, in rural or urban communities, Missourians are known for our hard work, grit, and determination. 

Like we’ve done time and time again when natural disasters have torn apart communities, flooded farmland, or threatened our health and safety, Missourians have cast political differences aside and come together to combat these tough challenges.

But we continue to have one problem: elite, liberal newspapers in our state believe that you and I are too simple-minded and uneducated to overcome tough challenges.

The latest from the editorial board of the St. Louis Post Dispatch is unacceptable and irresponsible. Missourians everywhere are tired of being labeled and dismissed by liberal news outlets. The rural and urban divide exists because of this type of attack on Missourians’ way of life.

Members of the Post Dispatch editorial board look down upon and view Missourians as uneducated and simple-minded. It only takes a trip through the heartland to see that nothing could be further from the truth.

These irresponsible actions, if left unchecked, will continue to drive wedges into the fabric of who we are as Missourians. 

Missourians have always faced challenges, but we defeat them together. COVID-19 has affected everyone, and I am proud of the way both rural and urban Missourians have stepped up to do their part in this crisis.

We aren’t afraid of critics and will boldly stand up against the elite, liberal newspapers who make a common practice of attacking Missourians—whether it’s our way of life or our intelligence. We won’t stand for fake news, liberal hypocrisy, or biased and misleading reporting, especially during a time of crisis. 

It’s not Missourians who don’t understand our way of life—it’s the elite media.

The St. Louis Post Dispatch editorial board will continue to publish their attacks, but I am proud of the ways in which Missourians—all Missourians—have come together to defeat this invisible enemy.

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

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.
