I’m Matt Shaughnessy, a married father of 5, a retired firefighter, former City Council member, and currently an attorney helping victims of violent crime pick up the pieces. As an experienced legislator and Council member, I drafted and passed legislation to make local government more transparent and helped to pass a citizen’s initiative for an independent elected Law Director in Green.
As a firefighter/paramedic it was obvious who I served… the people. And I treated every person like family, which is exactly what I will do in Columbus as State Representative. I’m going there to represent you and your family as I would my own, for a better Ohio.
“I expect more from my government officials, which is why I ran for office in the first place, and I’m not afraid to take off the gloves … and right now, right here in Ohio… its time… the gloves have to come off, and Democratic leaders have to fight back as Republicans attack our rights and our democracy.”
