Mike Sullivan was first elected as a member of Humble ISD Board of Trustees. He then won a seat on Houston City Council, where he was known as the most conservative member. Mike was elected Harris County Tax Assessor-Collector, where he served from 2013-2016. He has a burning desire to serve again, on the Lone Star College System Board of Trustees, District 8.
Mike is a product of Lone Star College. He graduated with an Associate of Arts from the Kingwood campus at the age of 53. He then went on to University of Houston-Downtown, where he obtained his Bachelor of Science at the age of 57. Mike is proud to be the first member of his family to graduate from college, but is more proud that his daughter graduated from Baylor University two weeks after his own graduation.
Republican leaders know Mike is a proven conservative. That is why he has early endorsements from State Senators Brandon Creighton and Paul Bettencourt; State Representatives Mike Schofield, Dennis Paul, and Dan Huberty; Precinct 4 Constable Mark Herman, Harris County District Clerk Chris Daniel, Houston City Council Member Dave Martin, and scores of community leaders.
