Governor Parson Weighs In On Selecting New State Health Director

Missouri Governor Mike Parson is saying he hopes to have a new health director within the next 2 months.

Parson made his remarks yesterday (Thursday) saying that he thought it was in the best interest of his office and Cabinet to part ways with former health director Randall Williams.

Specific reasons were not given, however the governor said the pandemic had created a stressful environment.

Williams resignation was announced on Tuesday and he led the State’s Health Department and Senior Services since being appointed by former Governor Eric Greitens in 2017.
