Missouri Dairy Association Endorses Mike Parson for Lieutenant Governor
Mike Parson has racked up yet another strong agricultural supporter, announcing that he has received the endorsement of the Missouri Dairy Association.
“The Missouri Dairy Association is proud to endorse a fellow farmer, Mike Parson. Mike will make a great Lieutenant Governor, as he has first-hand experience in our state’s number one industry and without question has the strongest pro-agriculture record of any candidate,” said Ted Sheppard, President of the Missouri Dairy Association.
“I truly appreciate the endorsement of the Missouri Dairy Association, and I want to thank them for their support,” said Mike Parson. “Agriculture is the lifeblood of our state’s economy, and our government needs to focus on doing more to help farmers succeed, not getting in the way with needless regulations and red tape. If elected, I will work hard to promote Missouri agriculture and protect this important way of life.”
Senator Mike Parson, a former Sergeant in the U.S. Army, served as Polk County Sheriff for twelve years, served in the Missouri House of Representatives, and is currently working for Missourians in the State Senate. Senator Parson was the Senate leader in the effort to put the Right to Farm Constitutional Amendment before the voters, helping to protect Missouri agriculture.
Senator Parson, a Missouri native and third-generation farmer, lives in Bolivar with his wife, Teresa, where they own and operate a cattle farm. They have two children and five grandchildren and are members of First Baptist Church of Bolivar.
