Governor Parson Reflects on Time in Missouri’s Highest Office

In June of 2018 Mike Parson became Missouri’s governor after Eric Greitens resigned from office. He earned re-election in 2020 by defeating then State Auditor Nicole Galloway. Now in his final year as governor, Parson reflected on his tenure.

Parson got his political career started in 1993 as Polk County Sheriff. He went on to serve in the state house and senate from 2004 to 2016 before becoming lieutenant governor. A total of eight candidates have declared for the 2024 Missouri gubernatorial election. Parson shared his thoughts on the crowded field.

Parson visited Little Dixie Regional Library in Moberly on Tuesday as part of his “No Turnin’ Back” book tour. Net earnings from his book will go to the Moving Missouri Forward Foundation which serves various programs for children in the state.
