-A A +A

My name is Billy Hinote and I am a candidate for Levy County School Board District 2 and would like to let you know a few things about me.
I have resided in Levy County for 42 years. I graduated from Chiefland High School in 1978. Then I went to the IBEW Local 349 Electrical Trade School in Miami.
I have owned and operated Hinote Electric for the past 20 years. I am also the chairman of the Levy County Construction and Industry Licensing Board.
I am the vice president of the Chiefland Area Athletic Association for our youth. I have coached all sports in Levy County for the past 20 years. I'm also involved and support our youth in the Suwannee River Livestock Fair.
I have been married to my wonderful wife, Janet, for the past 19 years. My wife is retired from the City of Cedar Key after 17 years of being the assistant clerk for the city. Now she works at the Chiefland Elementary School as a paraprofessional in
We have been blessed with three wonderful children. Our oldest is Ryan. He is a police officer for the City of Chiefland and he is married to  Jamie.  They have our beautiful four-year-old granddaughter Madison. Our daughter is Amanda. She works in Gainesville for North Florida Medical Sales and Rentals of Gainesville as a sales rep. She is married to Brent Hitt. Our teenage son Lonnie is a seventh grader at Chiefland Middle School. He is very involved in sports, 4-H, FFA and the Suwannee River Livestock Fair.
I believe that my 20 years of owning and operating my own successful business has given me the knowledge and experience I'll need to represent all Levy County residents. If you give me the opportunity to serve on the Levy County School Board, I will be very dedicated, loyal, honest and work extremely hard for all of Levy County.
