Governor Peter Shumlin announced today that he has tapped Jean O’Sullivan, a long-time Burlington Democrat, to fill the Vermont House of Representatives seat formerly held by Representative Mark Larson, who stepped down in July to serve as head of Department of Vermont Health Access. “I am very pleased to make this announcement today,” Shumlin said. “I was sent three very strong candidates for the post. I believe that Jean brings public service experience that will enable her to hit the ground running at the State House, and she shares my commitment to the issues, particularly on renewable energy and the war on recidivism. She will serve her constituents well.” O’Sullivan’s elected positions include three terms as Burlington Ward Seven City Councilor, two terms as Burlington Justice of the Peace, three terms as Burlington Ward Seven Clerk, and more. In addition, she has served on the Vermont Board of Private Investigators, Board of Optometry and Department of Employment Security Committee to Review Unemployment Compensation. She previously worked at GunnAllen Financial, AG Edwards & Sons, Inc, and Merrill Lynch, and owned a small business. She will be sworn into office when lawmakers return to the State House in January.
