I am Patricia “Regina” Swint. I am running for Bienville Parish School Board – District 6. I am a lifelong resident of Castor/Bienville Parish. My parents are the late Reginald and Nona Mae Moore. I graduated from Castor High School. I then attended Draughn Business College where I earned my degree in accounting. I have been married for 19 years. I have six children (including two daughter-in-laws) and four grandchildren. Two of my grandchildren attend Saline High School and another will begin there next year. One of my daughter-in-laws also teaches at Saline.
My community and parish are very important to me. I have been, or am, involved in a number of organizations. I was a Pine Beetle Festival Committee Member for 10 years. I am a former co-president of Castor High School Parent, Teacher, Student Organization. I am a member of Castor High School Athletic Booster Club. I am on the board of directors of the Bienville Parish Chamber of Commerce. I have coordinated numerous fundraisers for people within our community to help with medical bills.
If I am elected to represent District 6, I can and will promise that I will make decisions that I believe are the best for every Bienville Parish student and faculty. First and foremost the person elected is supposed to represent their district. To me, however, that responsibility goes much deeper. I believe that it is each representatives duty to work together to do what is best for every student, faculty and school within our parish. I want every student in our parish to be offered the best education possible. It is our responsibility to set every student up to be successful in whatever their future holds. We are helping to mold and teach our future. That is something I do not take lightly.
I am going to do my best to visit with everyone within District 6. I want to hear from parents, students and faculty. I want to hear your thoughts or concerns. I want to know what you believe is working great and what positive changes could be made. If I am elected I will have an open door policy. I want everyone in our district to feel comfortable in contacting me. I will not make promises that I may not be able to keep. I may completely agree with you on an issue, however, there are seven representatives that will have to work together for our schools. I will promise, however, that I will listen to and address your concerns. I will do what I believe will benefit our students and schools.
I will very much appreciate your consideration in voting for me, #71. Please feel free to contact me at 318-294-0231.
Thank you in advance,
Patricia “Regina” Swint
