Political Bio

Maxine Seymour was mentored and mothered by the Late Honourable Theresa M. Moxey-Ingraham for 26 years from 1992 – when Maxine featured her in an essay entitled My Bahamian HeroA Woman in Politics – until her untimely passing in 2018.

A 3rd generation FNM supporter, Maxine recalls canvasing for the party, alongside older relatives, from childhood in 1987 onward. Her grandfather was victimized for voting for the UBP and she has always stood against such injustice as characterized by the PLP. She believes that the FNM remains the better choice for our beloved country.

While in high school, Maxine joined the Torchbearers Youth Association and the FNM sent her to Guyana in 1993 to participate in the Caribbean Youth Festival & Mock Parliament. She was also a participant in The Bahamas’ National Youth Parliament in 1999.

Formerly elected as the youngest Vice President of the FNM’s Women’s Association (WA), Maxine resigned her post after relocating to the USA for college but has remained an active member of the WA over the years.

Maxine has spoken at FNM rallies, town meetings and other events, including the Party’s National Convention of 1997.
