John Spiegelman

Commissioner, Abington Township, Ward 11


Raised outside New York City, I came to Pennsylvania almost twenty-five years ago to attend Swarthmore College, where I met my wife, Ester Eichler—known throughout our community as Abington High School’s beloved German teacher, “Frau Eichler.” Sixteen years ago, we moved to Abington Township and lived in the Benson/Colonade Manor until, almost ten years ago, we bought a house in just the right neighborhood to grow our family, Highland Farms. Our little girl, Amelia, is a third grader at Highland Elementary.
