Pam Myhra Files Affidavit of Candidacy
for State Representative
Pam Myhra, Republican endorsed candidate for State Representative of House District 40A and 32-year Burnsville resident, filed her Affidavit of Candidacy on Tuesday, May 25, 2010, at the Secretary of State’s office in St. Paul, MN. House District 40A consists of central and western Burnsville and the northeastern section of Savage.
Myhra, a certified public accountant (inactive license) and former manager for the international public accounting firm, KPMG, is running to advocate for responsible government, the promotion of jobs, and the protection of family incomes.
Myhra said, “When incumbent Rep. Morgan began his term in office and the Democrats took control of the Minnesota House of Representatives in 2007, Minnesota had a $2.2 billion dollar surplus. Now, after four Democratic-controlled legislative sessions, Minnesota faces a looming projected five to eight billion dollar deficit. Throughout the 2010 session, Morgan and his Democratic colleagues concentrated on adding debt and increasing taxes on the people of Minnesota, which has continued to sour our economic environment and burden us, as well as our children, with paying the bill.”
Myhra, a Burnsville Senior High School and University of St. Thomas honor graduate, said, “Similar to the experience of many others in Minnesota, my family suffered a significant drop in income in 2009. We had to review our budget, set responsible priorities, and reduce our spending. Minnesota state government needs to do the same thing.”
Myhra and her husband, Chuck, have three children, all high-honors students at Northwestern College in St. Paul.
