Connecticut’s Kid Governor Inauguration Day 2020

Connecticut’s Kid Governor Inauguration Day 2020 was a success! On Friday, January 17, 2020, Myra Stanfield of Eric G. Norfeldt Elementary School in West Hartford was sworn in as the fifth Connecticut’s Kid Governor. The fifth graders of Connecticut elected Myra based on her platform of preventing animal abuse. During her term, Myra will work on being an advocate for animals by focusing on her three platform points:

  1. Inform people about how animal abuse is a problem.
  2. Raise money and collect items for animals in need.
  3. Hold a statewide adoption event.

Governor Lamont, Lt. Governor Bysiewicz, US Senator Blumenthal, Secretary of the State Merrill, Treasurer Wooden, Commissioner of Education Cardona, Deputy Attorney General Chapple, State Senator Slap, Representative Gilchrest, Mayor Cantor, and Judge Dennis Eveleigh were all present to celebrate the 2020 Inauguration Day.

Throughout the year, CTKG Myra will work with the six finalist from the 2019 Statewide Election who will make up her Cabinet. The Cabinet members will meet periodically at Connecticut’s Old State House in Hartford  to discuss how they can support Myra’s platform and continue together on their own platforms. 

What a great program and a great event to be able to capture! Congratulations to all the Kid Governor finalists and especially to Myra!
