Spartz grew up in Ukraine. She is a businesswoman, farmer, CPA, finance executive, university educator and former Big 4 and Fortune 500 auditor. She serves on several Senate committees, including Education and Career Development, Environmental Affairs and Pension and Labor.

“We can never forget that the solution to most problems we have in our society is less government and more freedom and competition, whether it’s education or healthcare,” Spartz stated. “We must concentrate on core government functions to maintain law and order and an effective criminal justice system, protect private property rights, empower individuals to pursue happiness, and maintain a vibrant business environment.”

During her term, Spartz has advanced bills to advance fiscal oversight and accountability, improve education, implement election audits and expand prevention in the juvenile justice system. She recently launched working groups on improving government accountability and transparency, health care cost and value and more. 

If re-elected, Spartz plans to enhance fiscal responsibility and accountability to taxpayers, improve the health care system, align education with modern demands, improve regulatory environment for small businesses and entrepreneuers, protect private property rights and individual freedoms, reform the welfare system and streamline the criminal justice system.

Spartz lives in Noblesville with her husband and two daughters.
