Janet Sullivan, Executive Committee, Chairman

 

Janet Sullivan

Jan is from farm country in west-central Illinois near the Mississippi River.  She spent a majority of her working life at Caterpillar Inc. in Peoria, Illinois, and enjoyed the various opportunities a large corporation offers–  working with new people and learning new business functions every couple of years– which is probably why she can’t stand still in retirement.  A majority of Jan’s career was in IT, but her favorite job was travelling to various universities to recruit interns and new hires to work at Caterpillar.  Jan is married to Peter Wentworth who spent his childhood as a “Diplomat’s brat” in Africa and the Middle East.  Jan and Peter recently lost a majority of their small business due to Covid-19.  They are rather discombobulated by it all, but are mostly concerned about the three employees who lost their jobs.  Jan and Peter moved full-time to the Hammock in 2013 (Precinct 29) where Jan is a Precinct Leader.  Jan is Vice-Chair of the Hammock Community Association and Recording Secretary of Scenic A1A Pride organization.  Both of these organizations work to preserve the environmental and ecological systems in the Hammock.  Jan is very grateful to be a two-time breast cancer survivor.  She is an accomplished pianist, enjoys gardening, and she and Peter play pickleball several times each week.  They love their life here and both look forward to serving the Democrats of Flagler County for the next four years.
