Gov Parson extends record of appointing the most statewide office holders
Governor Mike Parson will extend his record as the governor who appointed the most statewide office holders.
This is the second time that Governor Parson would have to name a new attorney general and a new state treasurer.
The first time was when Josh Hawley moved from Attorney General to Washington DC as a senator.
He appointed treasurer Eric Schmitt to that job, and then he had to appoint a new state treasurer who now Scott Fitzpatrick is moving up to State Auditor so again, the governor will have to appoint a new state treasurer.
He also appointed Lieutenant Governor Mike Kehoe as his own replacement when Parson became the governor after Eric Greitens resigned.
