Stanstead’s new Town Clerk

Stanstead Journal - - FORUM - Vic­to­ria Vanier Stanstead

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.
