Colton Guin Announces Candidacy for Bienville Parish School Board – District 6

Dear District 6,

I want to take this opportunity to introduce myself to you, as a candidate for Bienville Parish School
Board Member District 6.

I am a lifelong resident of Castor, Louisiana. I graduated from Castor High School in 2009. I continued my education at Louisiana Tech University, where I earned a Bachelor’s Degree in Finance. I am very proud of the education I received in Bienville Parish, as it prepared me for my next steps in life.

My grandfather started a small machine shop back in 1980. Growing up, I watched both my grandfather and father build two successful businesses in our community: Guin Machine Inc. and Advanced Molding Technology. After college, I was able to join the family business full-time in 2013. I will never take for granted the amount of work and prayers my family has poured into these businesses.

I am happily married to my wife, Megan, of ten years. When we decided to start our family, we knew that Castor would always be home. We searched for land of our own for years. Today, we are finishing construction on our forever home on Guin Road, just a short mile from the Guin Machine Inc. I can’t imagine raising my family anywhere else.

I am the proud father to two beautiful girls, Maggie and Milly. They both attend Castor High School. Four generations of Guins have graduated from Castor High School, and I pray my daughters will be the fifth. That is a wonderful legacy our whole family is proud of.

The decision to run for Bienville Parish School Board Member District 6 was not made lightly. I prayed about this decision for several months seeking His counsel. Without a doubt, I believe this is a step God wants me to take. I am ready to make a positive difference in the lives of our children, teachers, and school staff.

I am truly invested in the Bienville Parish School System. If elected, each and every decision voted for or against will affect my own children and family. I realize that what we have in Bienville Parish is becoming a rarity. The public acknowledgement of God in our schools and our ability to pray within those walls is absolutely something to fight for. If elected, I commit to ensuring that God is in the center of every decision I make.

I also realize there are opportunities for improvement. My role as a father of a child in the school system has not always been easy. When I needed to take a stand to advocate for my daughters, I did. If elected, I will advocate for the best interest of all our children.

I hope I have the chance to meet with you before the November election. This is an exciting time for our community and I look forward to hearing from all our community members. Please feel free to reach out to me with any questions or concerns at (318) 548-0065. I truly want to see our district excel by providing our children an education that will lead to successful and productive lives.

Thank you and God Bless,
Colton Guin
Candidate of School Board Member
District 6 – #70
