Roosevelt, Governor of the State of New York, do hereby designate John Sullivan of New York City, as a delegate to represent this State at said Meeting to be held at New Orleans, La., December 27-28, 1929." In 1940, John F. Sullivan was nominated as American Labor candidate for the New York Senate.
