Pamela “Pam” J. Swift

State House District 62

Age:  60

Residence: Palermo

Party: Democratic

Present employment: Farmer, Select Board member

Highest level of education completed: M.D. degree

Previous elected public office(s) held: Serving my second term on Palermo’s Select Board

Statement: In 2015, I had an epiphany and realized if I am not willing to stand up and serve in a political office, then we get what we get. That is when I decided to run for Select Board in Palermo. I am now serving my second term in that office. Then, when we were redistricted after the 2020 Census, I learned no Democrats were running in our new District 62, but two Republicans were — I could not let that go unchallenged.
