Dear fellow Minnesotans,
I am running for MN State Auditor to provide crucial accountability and transparency for the use of government resources – our tax dollars, which will lead to improved government operations and services. I am committed to supplying independent and objective analysis and information to best serve you. With my knowledge and experience as a Certified Public Accountant, former audit manager at an international public accounting firm and former two-term MN State Representative, my number one priority will be to advocate for your interests and of all Minnesota’s taxpayers.
I would greatly appreciate your support!
Pam Myhra, CPA
Minnesota has been my home for five-decades where I graduated from Burnsville High School in 1975. After graduating magna cum laude with a Bachelor of Arts degree in Business Administration from the University of St. Thomas in St. Paul, MN, I joined the audit practice of the international public accounting firm, KPMG. As a certified public accountant, I specialized in banking, insurance, and government clients until placing my career on hold to have a family and home educate my three children.
I am a former two-term Minnesota State Representative serving the City of Burnsville in Dakota County and the City of Savage in Scott County, from 2011 to 2014. From 2011 to 2012, I served as a member on the Capital Investment, Education Finance, Education Policy, and Tax committees. From 2013 to 2014, I served as the minority lead member on the Early Childhood and Youth Development Policy committee and as a member of the Education Finance and Tax committees. I also was appointed the minority party House legislative liaison to the Minnesota Early Learning Council and to the Minnesota Youth Council.
I am a graduate of the Minnesota Excellence in Public Service Series, a communications, leadership, and management program for female leaders and a recipient of the National Foundation of Women Legislators’ Elected Women of Excellence award.
I currently serve as the state president of the Minnesota Federation of Republican Women.
I am a Certified Public Accountant with an active license and a member of the American Institute of Certified Public Accountants and the MN Society of CPAs.
Chuck, my husband of 37 years, and I reside in Burnsville, MN.
Ready to Serve as State Auditor with the Needed Experience and Knowledge!
