Senator Nancy Sullivan is presently serving her fourth term in the Maine State Senate and serves on three Joint Standing Committees: Marine Resources, Government Oversight and State and Local Government. Senator Sullivan represents District 4 which includes Arundel, Kennebunk, Kennebunkport and part of Biddeford.
Sullivan was first Inspired to run for office by then-House Speaker and former Senate President Libby Mitchell. Prior to her service in the State Senate, Sullivan served three terms in the House of Representatives.
Senator Sullivan proudly declares her legislative priorities as education, the environment, the economy, and of course, health care, child care, and women’s care.
For Senator Sullivan, a definite highlight of her career was the opportunity to attend the JFK School of Government at Harvard for three weeks as a member of the Senior Executives to State and Local Government Program. “I will always be grateful to the Henry Brooks Foundation for giving me the opportunity to attend. Words can not describe the fantastic experience! Of course, it was interesting being on the “other side of the desk” after so many years,” remarked Senator Sullivan.
Outside of her role as State Senator, Sullivan is a dedicated public school teacher for the Saco School System.
Sullivan graduated from Thornton Academy and earned her BS in education from the University of Southern Maine-Gorham.
