Tom Sullivan

Livingston Parish Clerk of Court Tom Sullivan is running for re-election, citing an extensive list of improvements and “firsts” that he has instituted as the parish’s clerk of court.

Sullivan, 63, a Republican, compiled the parish’s first complete ownership map, implemented an Internet-based search program at the lowest cost statewide, has maintained a branch office for greater service and more timely filings and was the first clerk in the state to offer free filings for adoptive families, he said in a news release

Sullivan recently led the parish’s effort to finance and construct the new $20 million courthouse without increasing costs to taxpayers, he said.

Sullivan noted that the Livingston Parish Clerk of Court has received clean audits every year that he has been in public office. The Louisiana Clerks of Court Association has elected Sullivan to its board of directors, legislative committee, building committee and expungement committee.

Sullivan was first sworn in as Clerk of Court in July 2000 after a 30-year career in real estate sales, development and appraisals. He received his real estate salesman’s license in 1973, his broker’s license in 1980 and his general appraisal certification in 1990.

Sullivan is married to Teri Gully Sullivan, and they have three sons and six grandchildren. He is a member of First United Methodist Church of Denham Springs, the Livingston Parish Chamber of Commerce and Livingston Parish Board of Realtors.
