Lt. Gov. visits Nevada

Saturday, April 28, 2018

In an interview prior to his speech at the Lincoln Day Rally at the Vernon County Fairgrounds Friday, Parson said two of Missouri’s greatest needs are infrastructure and having a workforce with the skills for 21st-century jobs. “As Republicans, we have the statewide majority and we need to deliver. We wanted the job, we asked for the job now what are we going to do? What are we going to do to deal with our crumbling roads and bridges? And what are we going to do about preparing the workforce we must have if we are going to move this state forward? These are the conversations I want to have all over this state.” In a clear reference to Missouri’s governor, Parson, a former Polk County sheriff, state representative and senator said, “Look, no one elected official is larger than the state of Missouri, they are not. Whether it’s me, the governor, the treasurer, senator or representative, Missouri is much bigger than that.” At this, he leaned over, raised his right index finger and said, “While time will tell how this situation unfolds I will tell you this, Missouri will move forward, we have to and we will.”
