Lt. Governor Mike Parson and Associated Industries of Missouri President Ray McCarty will be traveling Missouri this week to promote buying locally made products. Tyler Habiger, the spokesperson for the Lt. Governor’s Office, said that his campaign will be the “first of many” phases to promote Missouri produced goods. The flyaround will begin Tuesday and includes 10 cities in the state.
“When you buy Missouri products, you’re helping support those business owners that operate those businesses in your hometown or some other hometown in Missouri,” Ray McCarty said. “That’s going to help our overall economy. There’s nothing better for economic development than growing our own. We’re making sure that we take care of our businesses here in Missouri.”
