In an interview with St. Louis Public Radio, Gov. Mike Parson stated he plans to focus on developing jobs, funding infrastructure improvements and overhauling expensive state programs in 2019.
Parson stated he wants to improve workforce development, starting with the youth. The state has to take a role in early childhood development, he said. “If you really want to change society for a lot of people, then it’s going to be with the kids side of it,” he said.
He also stated transportation projects are a priority.
