Auditor Galloway statement on Governor Parson’s lack of mask usage over the weekend

July 13, 2020

Columbia, Mo. — Today, Auditor Nicole Galloway released the following statement on Governor Parson’s unwillingness to follow his own guidance on the use of masks:

“Governor Parson has urged Missourians to social distance and to wear a mask when they can’t maintain distance. Governor Parson then spent the last two weekends sharing photos of himself unwilling to follow his own standards. On Saturday, speaking indoors in a crowded event, he essentially told people not to wear a mask if they don’t want to. Governor Parson cannot expect Missourians to take his guidelines seriously when he talks out of both sides of his mouth This is a stunning failure of leadership. It appears the only way to get Governor Parson to follow his own advice is to have the Director of the Missouri Department of Health intervene with a statewide order on masks. To protect the public health, save jobs and restart our economy - please, wear a mask.”
