State Rep. Michael Sheehy, recently appointed to fill the seat of former State Rep. Matt Szollosi, said he had big dreams of being a public servant as a child.

“Some kids want to be a quarterback. I grew up wanting to be a congressman. This is almost a dream job,” said Sheehy, who was on Oregon City Council for nine terms before his appointment to the state legislature. He will serve the 18 months remaining in Szollosi’s two year term representing the 46th House District, which encompasses Oregon, East and South Toledo, Maumee, Springfield Township and Holland.
