About Me

My name is Myra Stanfield and I live in West Hartford (and Canton) with my moms Cindy, Sandy, and Laurie, my brother Simon, and my sister Carley. I have a rescue dog named Oliver, two cats named Seally and Cocoa, a hamster named Koma, and my fish named Bowie. I like to draw, play with my friends, make up songs with my friend Ali, and watch Marvel movies. As a leader, I am passionate, kind, empathetic, honest, and I stand up for what I beleieve in. 


CTKG Myra’s Platform

2020 Connecticut’s Kid Governor Myra Stanfield was elected on her platform of Preventing Animal Abuse. Her platform focuses on three platform points to advocate for animals in Connecticut:

  1. I want to inform and educate people about animal abuse and why it’s a problem.
  2. I want students across Connecticut to raise money and collect spare blankets, pet toys, and other items for animals in shelters.
  3. I will hold a statewide adoption event to help shelter animals find a safe home.
