Mr. Gore was appointed by Governor Mike Parsons and sworn in on May 30, 2023. An experienced prosecutor and trial attorney, Mr. Gore has been practicing for nearly 30 years. Some wisdom from his remarks included: “Your experience here will change you forever. I implore you to pursue your studies with a collaborative spirit. Success cannot be achieved alone.”
