Parsons is an IDIOT - - as proven Time and Time again... When will we ever LEARN -

Missouri and Joplin - Keep Voting in and Putting these IDIOTS IN CHARGE - Doesn't the State and Joplin - Deserve Better Representation - than these Two???

It's so painfully obvious how pompous and ignorant Mayor Seibert truly is. The fact that he turned a blind eye to the corruption of Wallace-Bajjali and then have the audacity to defend them and insult the citizens of Joplin - about how a Master Developer Works - and allowed the City of Joplin to get involved and then tried to make Excuses is ridiculous. He is Drug Salesman and Not a Very SMART ONE AT THAT - IF YOU KNEW HIM...

When former Joplin tornado mayor Mike Woolston resigned from the City Council in disgrace in 2015 just before a censure hearing that likely would have led to his removal from the council, three council members, including Mike Seibert voted to use taxpayer money to pay for most of Woolston's legal fees, which amounted to $71,000.
