Governor Parson announces statewide listening tour

   

Governor Mike Parson will make nine stops next week to hear from community leaders across Missouri. The tour will begin Tuesday with visits to Springfield, Branson, Carthage, St. Joseph, and Kansas City. The tour will continue Wednesday with visits to Columbia, Cape Girardeau, Sikeston, and St. Louis.

“In order to govern effectively and to begin the process of moving our state forward, it is important to take the time to listen and understand different types of challenges that face our communities,” said Governor Mike Parson.

“We’ll be talking to community leaders about how to best address issues like infrastructure, workforce and economic development, and the urban and rural divide. Our local communities are the bedrock of this state, and we are committed to working with and listening to all ideas as we begin to develop a plan to move Missouri forward.”
