Parish History

Livingston Parish was originally part of the Florida Parishes. The parish was created on February 10, 1832, when the state Legislature split St. Helena Parish in two.  Historians differ as to which one, but the parish was definitely named after either Robert or Edward Livingston.  In 1869, the parish lost territory when Tangipahoa Parish was created.  It later gained additional land when Maurepas Island was made part of the parish.

Livingston Parish consists of 642 square miles on 410,880 acres and is 32 miles long by 30 miles wide. The geographical landscape of the parish varies from rolling terrain covered by slash pine and hardwood forests in the northern part to rich cypress forests and marshes that border on Lake Maurepas and the Amite River in the southern end.

Livingston Parish has eight municipalities, with Denham Springs being the largest. Other municipalities are Albany, French Settlement, Killian, Livingston (the parish seat), Port Vincent, Springfield and Walker.

Clerk of Court Tom Sullivan

Tom Sullivan was elected Livingston Parish Clerk of Court in November, 1999, after a 30-year career in real estate sales, development and appraisals. He received his real estate salesman's license in 1973, his broker's license in 1980, and his general appraisal certification in 1990. His real estate practice was under a family owned brokerage, Tom Sullivan Real Estate, which opened in 1960. The real estate firm was closed upon the retirement of his father. His appraisal company, Appraisal Associates of Louisiana, was closed in 1999 after his election as Livingston Parish Clerk of Court. 

Tom's election platform focused on improving customer service through implementation of modern technologies and the re-structuring of the office administration. As early evidence of his success, since his election, Livingston Parish has improved from last place in the timely reporting of election night returns to being among the top tier of parishes. Current ongoing projects include compilation of the first complete ownership map in Livingston Parish and the initial data transfer that will lead to an internet-based search program for real estate conveyances. 

During his first term Tom completed the professional education requirements for certification, and was awarded the designation Certified Clerk of Court by the Louisiana Clerks of Court Association (LCCA).   In 2002, he was elected to the LCCA board of directors as representative of District One --- which includes the nine parishes of Ascension,  East Baton Rouge, East Feliciana, Livingston, St. Helena, St. James, St. John the Baptist, St. Tammany and Tangipahoa. 

Tom is married to Teri Gully Sullivan.  They have three sons - Saun, Justin and John - and two grandsons - Jack and Quinn.
