COLUMBUS - State Senator Kenny Yuko (D-Richmond Heights) released the following statement on the passing of former State Representative and State Senator Judy Sheerer:

“My condolences go out to Mr. Sheerer and his family at this difficult time. Senator Sheerer was a great advocate for the people of the 25th Senate District and the diverse neighborhoods she represented.  I feel fortunate to have been able to work with her on labor issues during her time as a legislator. Ohio has lost a great leader.”

She was then appointed to serve in the Ohio Senate representing Senate District 25, and won a full Senate term in 1994.
