To the Editor:

Being a community leader like Regina Hunt is something to look up to; that is why it is so vital to have her continue as a trustee on the South Country Board of Education.

Ms. Hunt currently serves as the Vice President for the Board, and is seeking re-election for her second term. She is a longtime resident of the district, and mother of children who have graduated from Bellport High School with currently two in the district (Frank P. Long and Bellport High School).

Regina believes in representing all of our students, and takes a whole child approach to being a leader in the district. She believes the success of our district begins with mutual accountability from our faculty, staff, administrators, Board members, and students.

The Bellport Teachers Association has chosen to endorse her, given her commitment to education.
A true advocate for our community, unafraid to speak her mind, and all around wonderful person —this is how we would describe Regina Hunt.

We are proud to endorse and support her candidacy for a second term on the Board of Education, and hope you will cast your vote for her as well.

The polls are open on Tuesday, May 15, at Bellport Middle School from 7 a.m. to 9 p.m.
