We’ve watched Gov. Parson refuse to take the reins and lead the response to the coronavirus pandemic for months.
But now, he’s signed a no-bid contract to have an out-of-state consulting firm try to do his work for him.
The State of Missouri has already paid a whopping $800,000 to these consultants, but as Nicole Galloway said this week, “All we have to show for (the contract) is rising infections, delayed school reopenings, a positivity rate over 10% and a spot on the White House Coronavirus Task Force’s ‘Red Zone.’”
Gov. Parson has abdicated his responsibilities. But in 58 days, we can elect a leader who’s not afraid of the hard work and the tough decisions.
We’ve hired over 20 organizers all across the state who are recruiting and training volunteers, holding phone banks and text banks, organizing lit drops, and manning field offices in order to elect Democrats from the top of the ticket to the bottom.
If we work together every single day from here on out, we will push Nicole Galloway over the finish line and bring true leadership to the Governor’s Office.
