About Robert Sprague
Robert Sprague is running for Treasurer of State and will bring the type of ethical, innovative, problem-solving leadership to the office that Ohioans deserve.
As Findlay City Treasurer and Auditor, Robert balanced city budgets and helped finance a massive recovery effort after historic floods and the 2008 economic crash ravaged the city. Robert also helped Findlay improve its credit rating, lower its debt service costs and created the city’s first annual financial report to help people better understand city finances.
As a State Representative, Robert’s district sits along the I-75 corridor that was first to feel the pain of heroin and opioid addiction and overdoses. Robert responded; he led the effort in the Ohio House, working with law enforcement, church leaders, and doctors to fight back against the epidemic years before it became national news.
In Columbus, Robert led like a Conservative should: he eliminated an $8 billion budget deficit, passed a $5 billion tax cut, sponsored the amendment to eliminate Ohio’s ‘death tax’, and ended the rules and regulations cramping job creation. Ohio has now created 450,000 new jobs and counting.
With global experience in private investment and management consulting, a degree from Duke University and an MBA from the University of North Carolina, where he graduated 7th in his class, Robert’s professional experience and qualifications for the office of Treasurer of State are unparalleled.
Robert currently resides in his hometown of Findlay with his wife, Amanda, and their five children, Cole, Davis, Graham, Tate, and Mary Hannah. They are members of Gateway Evangelical Presbyterian Church
