Jessica Sullivan chosen to chair Town Council in 2018

Jessica L. Sullivan was chosen by the Town Council as chair for 2018 at their annual caucus Nov. 13, 2017. A councilor since December of 2009, Sullivan this past year served as chair of the finance committee and has chaired and served on both the ordinance and appointments subcommittees. This is her second term as chair, having also led the council in 2014. She is part of the fifth generation of her family to live in Cape Elizabeth.

Jamie Garvin, council chair for 2017, was chosen to succeed Sullivan as head of the finance committee. Penny Jordan was selected to lead the ordinance committee, and Sara Lennon to continue as chair of the appointments committee.

The council leadership for 2018 will be formally voted on Monday, Dec. 11, at the first meeting of the new council year. Valerie Randall and Chris Straw, elected to the council this month, will take their oaths of office for their first terms.
