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 two rescue dogs named Oliver and Mateo and two cats named Seally and Cocoa. 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 believe in.
CTKG Myra’s Platform
2020 Connecticut’s Kid Governor Myra Stanfield was elected on her Standing Up for Animals in Need platform focused on preventing animal abuse towards companion animals. Her platform focuses on three platform points to advocate for companion animals in Connecticut:
- Inform and educate kids about companion animals in need and how they can help these animals.
- Encourage schools to fundraise and collect toys, blankets, and other supplies for their local animal shelters to make shelter pets feel loved.
- Hold a statewide pet adoption event.
