Stanstead’s new Town Clerk
The town of Stanstead has had a new Town Clerk since the end of 2010: Edwin John Sullivan. This Sherbrooke resident replaced Josiane Hudon on November 29th. “It was very busy for the first six weeks or so but things have calmed down a bit,” said Mr. Sullivan from his office at the Town Hall.
Mr. Sullivan, after taking law at the Université de Sherbrooke, was admitted to the bar in 2006. He practiced General Law, more specifically: civil, criminal, family, youth and elder law, between 2006 and 2010. Mr. Sullivan also holds degrees in mechanical engineering, history and anthropology.
Originally from Montreal, he travelled extensively to such regions as Central America, South America and India before settling down in Sherbrooke after meeting his wife.
When asked about possibly moving to the Stanstead area to avoid the long commute, Mr. Sullivan replied in the negative: “Unfortunately no. My wife teaches at the Cegep de Sherbrooke and my children go to school in Sherbrooke.” He has, however, figured out a good way to make the long commute more productive. “I listen to podcasts about history or anthropology while driving back and forth to work. Finally I can get a little ‘me’ time,” said the father of four young children, aged five to eleven.
