WORTHINGTON -- Senate District 22 is seeking new representation in the State Senate this November with Worthington Mayor Alan Oberloh.

He has served as Mayor of the City of Worthington for 10 years and held past seats on the ISD 518 School Board, Wind Energy Task Force, the Worthington Planning Commission and the Chamber Executive Board.
