Sandy Spang’s personal, professional and educational experiences have prepared her to serve the citizens of Toledo. After graduating magna cum laude from Bowling Green State University, Sandy held several management positions, and with her husband, Mark, has developed and managed a portfolio of residential and commercial real estate.
In 2009, Sandy spearheaded the creation of the Beverly Place Facade Grant to revitalize a retail center in the heart of the Beverly neighborhood, and opened Plate 21, a successful independent coffee house with ten employees.
Sandy has been active in the community, serving on the Educator’s Board of the Toledo Museum of Art, teaching at Toledo Urban Impact Afterschool Club, serving on the rebuilding committee of First Alliance Church in the Uptown district and the Future of Toledo Eliminating Blight and Repurposing Land Committee.
Recently, Sandy received a Community Partnership Award from the Lucas County Board of Developmental Disabilities which was especially meaningful to her as she is guardian to her special needs brother, Steve.
Mark and Sandy have three college-aged children, Ben, Lily and Eli. Sandy will strive to make Toledo a city of opportunity for her children and all young Toledoans.
Sandy has experienced first-hand that vibrant small businesses enhance the quality of life in a community. She will encourage small business development in every neighborhood in Toledo.
A modern and well-maintained infrastructure is a fundamental responsibility of elected officials. Wise decisions need to be made to address deferred maintenance of our water treatment facilities, roads and bridges.
The future of Toledo depends upon the decisions we make now. Sandy knows that the same actions that will make life safer and more enjoyable for Toledo’s citizens will also make it a city that is attractive to outside investment and development.
