Sandi’s first memories of government in action were as a small child visiting her father while he was working at the election polls and her parents voted. Her father was very interested in the candidates and their opinions and attended political rallies so she became friends with local, state and federal government officials at an early age. She also remembers when she was young that her uncle was a “township clerk”. Her elementary school was to be torn down in 1970 but the attorney she worked for fought for the township residents and the school was kept open for several years and today is owned and used by that township (not her current township).
Her career as a full-time legal secretary for more than forty years allowed her to specialize in estates, which required accounting of funds and dealing with the public daily; and her experience as an executive secretary for a coal company helped her with the vendor side of being a Fiscal Officer. Having owned her own bookkeeping and income tax business gave her experience on the payroll side.
She ran opposed and won in 2003, 2007 and 2011 elections and ran upopposed in 2015 election. She is hoping for another unopposed election in 2019.
She and her husband, Leonard, who have been married almost forty-one years, have resided on the family’s farm in Washington Township, Hocking County, Ohio, since 1993. She enjoys spending time with her husband, travelling, attending tractors shows and the Grand Ole Opry, reading, outdoor flowers and cooking. She is proud to be a supporter of Washington Township’s Volunteer Fire Department.
