Rep. Pam Myhra
Published in Sun Thisweek
To the editor:
I was pleased to learn that Rep. Pam Myhra has received the endorsement of the National Federation of Independent Business (Minnesota SAFE). As Minnesota’s largest business group, NFIB understands that reducing burdensome regulation and improving the tax climate are necessary for small businesses to flourish. When small businesses succeed, jobs are created.
Growing and developing small businesses is essential to economic recovery. This endorsement, along with her continued support of small business owners, confirms Myhra’s tireless effort to improve the economy and promote jobs.
Pam Myhra is the best choice for state representative, 56A and has my vote.
Published in Savage Pacer
Rep. Pam Myhra has my vote because she is the best choice to stand up for Savage in the State Legislature.
Rep. Myhra is a proven leader who can bring people from both parties together while maintaining her strong conservative values.
Earlier this year much was written about the resignation of an ISD 191 employee at great cost to the school district with little information disclosed to the public.
Rep. Myhra wrote a bill requiring more transparency and disclosure surrounding public employee termination agreements. The bill passed the Legislature unanimously and was signed into law by the governor.
Rep. Myhra is also a strong advocate for improving the economy and creating a better business environment in Minnesota, which will result in more jobs. She was endorsed by the Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Leadership Fund PAC and the National Federation of Independent Business Minnesota SAFE Trust.
Rep. Myhra is the person both Savage and the rest of Minnesota need in the state Legislature. I’m voting for State Rep. Pam Myhra.
Published in Savage Pacer
This election I am proud to be supporting Rep. Pam Myhra for re-election.
When redistricting started, I was worried what the new representative for Savage would be like. But once I found out who it was, I was very excited.
Pam has a reputation as a legislator who represents both her community’s families and small businesses. You don’t have to take my word for it. I went and found some of the groups who have endorsed Pam including Minnesota Citizens Concerned for Life State PAC, National Federation of Independent Business – Minnesota SAFE Trust, Minnesota Chamber of Commerce Leadership Fund PAC, National Rifle Association Political Victory Fund and Voices of Conservative Women.
So join me and the many others who are supporting Pam Myhra for State Representative in House District 56A.

ST. PAUL, Minn., Sept. 26, 2012—The state’s largest small business association, the National Federation of Independent Business, today announced that State Representative Pam Myhra (Burnsville) has been endorsed by NFIB’s political action committee, the NFIB/MN SAFE Trust.
The National Federation of Independent Business has more than 12,ooo members in Minnesota, making it the largest business group in terms of entities. “Representative Myhra is a strong supporter of small business, and had a perfect 100% score on the 2011–12 NFIB voting record,” said State Director Mike Hickey. “In her legislative race Representative Myhra is clearly the best candidate for small business.”
“Representative Myhra made many votes in support of small business during the recent 2011–12 legislative session, including voting for critical tax reductions and reforms to make Minnesota more competitive and also supporting four major tort reform bills to reduce lawsuit abuse. She also supported a critical measure that required the legislature to review and approve new rules and regulations that are burdensome and expensive for small business to comply with before they go into effect. Representative Myhra is a real friend of small business, and we are happy to announce her endorsement.”

Founded in 1943 as a nonprofit, nonpartisan organization, NFIB gives small and independent business owners a voice in shaping the public policy issues that affect their business.

This is an excerpt from the original article. The full article can be found here.
. . . At first, Burnsville school leaders tried to hide the existence Chance’s complaints, blacking out parts of her separation agreement, calling the information private under the Minnesota Data Practices Act. After a state review board said the information should be public, the district released a complete version of Chance’s separation agreement.
Lawmakers quickly responded to the controversy, with state Rep. Pam Myhra, R-Burnsville, drafting legislation to toughen the disclosure rules surrounding the buyout of public employees using taxpayer dollars. An amended version of Myhra’s bill was unanimously approved by the Legislature and signed by Gov. Mark Dayton.
The changes require government officials to disclose the specific reasons, including unresolved investigations and complaints, that lead to separation agreements with a public employee.
Government transparency advocates called it one of the best advances in the past decade.

Currently, Myhra represents House District 40A consisting of northern, central, and western Burnsville and the downtown area of Savage.
Myhra said, “It has been an honor to serve the communities of Burnsville and Savage and to work on turning around the state budget from a $6.2 billion deficit to a $1.2 billion surplus.” Myhra’s two stand-alone bills, “Digital Learning” and “Transparency of Separation Agreements with Public Funds”, both passed the House this year with unanimous support and were signed into law by the governor. Myhra stated her priorities for next session will continue to be “sensible state spending within its means, creating an economic environment where businesses start and stay in Minnesota, and protecting family incomes.”
Myhra was a member of the Capital Investment, Education Finance, Education Reform, and Tax committees during her first term in the Minnesota House of Representatives and she is a fellow in The National Conference of State Legislatures’ Early Learning program.
Burnsville has been Myhra’s home for 35 years where she graduated from Burnsville Senior High School in 1975. After graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from the University of Saint Thomas in St. Paul, MN, Myhra joined the international public accounting firm, KPMG. As a certified public accountant, she specialized in banking, insurance, and government. She placed her career on hold to have a family and home educate her three children: Kristin, Justin, and Kathrin.
