Tim Sheridan was a 2014 Democratic candidate who sought election to the U.S. House to represent the 42nd Congressional District of California.[1] Tim Sheridan lost the general election on November 4, 2014.


Sheridan earned an associate degree from Onondaga Community College in 1986 and a B.A. from SUNY/Oswego in 1989. He then received a J.D. from The University of Akron School of Law in 1992 and an LL.M. in Labor/Employment Law from Georgetown University Law School.[2]

Prior to law school, Sheridan was a radio broadcaster. He is currently a National Field Representative/Assistant Counsel for the National Treasury Employees Union.[2]


Campaign themes


Sheridan's campaign website listed the following issues:[3]

  • Veterans: "As an American and as a candidate for Congress, I think every day about the tremendous commitment of courage and sacrifice that so many of our brave young men and women make, and have made, to our great country since 9/11. I honor their commitment."
  • Afghanistan: "American troops have been in Afghanistan for twelve years – three times as long as it took us to win World War II. It’s time to get out! Over 2000 of our soldiers have been killed and many thousands more maimed for life. In addition to the incalculable cost to our troops and their families – we have spend over $300 billion dollars with scant results. This year our treaty with the Afghan government is up. It is time to leave and end this war! When I’m elected to Congress, I will work hard to make that happen."
  • Business: "I pledge to seek creation of sustainable and good paying jobs for future generations and concurrently support the research, development and implementation of green technologies for American firms. To this end, I will support tax credits, low-interest loans/loan guarantees and grants to encourage such work."
  • Immigration: "A year ago on April 16, 2013, the Senate passed S. 744 – a bi-partisan Immigration Reform Bill. Almost immediately, the leadership in House of Representatives, supported by 20 year incumbent Congressman Ken Calvert, decided that they would not take any action on the bill. Since then, the House has sat back and done nothing. The Republican leadership has even refused to allow the bill to come to the House floor for a simple up-or-down vote. This type of inaction is wrong. More importantly, it hurts our economy. The people of California’s 42nd District, and the country as a whole, deserve better."
