I was elected to the Sutter County Board of Supervisors District 1 in November of 2012. District 1 encompasses much of North Yuba City and all of the greater Live Oak area.
A lifelong Sutter County resident, I attended local schools and Chico State. My wife Susan Rusk Sullenger and I married in Yuba City in 1960, we four adult children and nine grandchildren.
Active in the family farm all my life, I primarily come to the County from the private sector. I have been a local merchant in the community for more than 30 years. I founded Circle R Irrigation and Four Seasons Travel. After selling both businesses to former employees, I semi-retired to our 70-acre peach orchard where Susan and I reside. We enjoy country living as much as their busy schedule allows.
I served in the United States Coast Guard Reserve. I am an active member and Past President of the Rotary Club of Yuba City, Past Master of the Yuba City Masonic Lodge, a 32 Degree Scottish Rite Mason and am Past Club President of the Central Sacramento Valley Shrine Club.
