State Representative Patrick Sheehan was appointed to the 37th House District on April 12, 2024, to fill the vacancy of retiring Rep. Tim Ozinga. The 37th District comprises parts of Will and suburban Cook County.

Serving as a Police Officer for nearly two decades, making Illinois safe for families is Patrick’s mission. He works to build trust between law enforcement and residents, will work for safer communities, and advocates for proactive strategies to fight crime in the highest-crime neighborhoods.

Patrick is dedicated to serving as a voice for seniors, parents, and hardworking taxpayers, working collaboratively to create a safer and more affordable Illinois.

Recognizing the outrageous impact inflation has on families across suburban communities, Patrick supports capping gasoline taxes and eliminating the grocery tax, while ensuring stable local government revenues.

Furthermore, Patrick believes in enacting policies in Springfield to recruit job creators back to Illinois. By expanding the tax base with a more business-friendly environment, we can avoid tax hikes on residents and job creators.

As a Lockport Alderman, President of the Lockport Jr Porters Football & Cheer Program, and former Lockport Parks Commissioner, Patrick has been deeply rooted in the community and brings a wealth of experience to the Illinois House of Representatives.

Patrick resides in Lockport with his wife, Susie, and their five children.
