(Burnsville, MN) – Honorable U.S. Senator Rudy Boschwitz, released the following statement today endorsing Pam Myhra for MN State Auditor.
“I strongly endorse the candidacy of Pam Myhra for MN State Auditor as the only candidate in the race with the needed credentials, background, and work experience to serve in this important position. Pam is a Certified Public Accountant with an active license. She has the real-life work experience as an auditor, being a former Audit Manager at KPMG, an international public accounting firm. Pam served two-terms as a MN State Representative and demonstrated her ability to build consensus when she chief-authored two government transparency bills, unanimously passed in the House and signed into law by the governor. Pam will lead the office of State Auditor with knowledge of the auditing profession and her proven leadership skills. No other candidate in the race comes close to Pam’s experience, knowledge and background needed to serve as MN State Auditor. I strongly endorse Pam Myhra for MN State Auditor as clearly the best choice for Minnesota.”
Myhra said, “I am deeply honored to receive U.S. Senator Boschwitz’s endorsement! I have the background and experience to lead the office to provide effective financial audits and performance reviews, with appropriate assessment and testing of internal controls, critical for giving accountability and transparency for the use of government resources.”
Myhra went on to say, “When our tax dollars are being used effectively and as they are intended, there are more resources for programs and projects like road repairs, teachers’ pay, funding government pensions, and low-income housing. I am committed to set the tone and lead the office to provide crucial accountability and transparency for the use of government resources – our tax dollars. It would be an honor to serve Minnesotans as their next State Auditor.”
