Political career

Sand was a member of the Bella Vista City Council from 2001 to 2005, and later served as secretary of the Chamber of Senators of Corrientes Province from 2005 to 2009.[1] She ran for the mayoralty of Bella Vista in 2009 under the "Frente de Todos por el Cambio" coalition; she won the election with 56.74% of the vote. Sand was the first member of the Justicialist Party to win a local election in Bella Vista in 36 years.[3]

From 2013 to 2015, she was Secretary of Community Development of the Corrientes municipal government. In 2015, she was elected to the Chamber of Senators of Corrientes.[4] She resigned from her seat in the Senate on 28 November 2019.[5]

At the 2019 legislative election, Sand was the second candidate in the Frente de Todos coalition list, behind José Ruiz Aragón. The list received 50.98% of the vote, and both Ruiz Aragón and Sand were elected.[6]

During her 2019–2023 term, Sand formed part of the parliamentary commissions on Population and Human Development, Education, Regional Economies and Development, Mercosur, and Municipal Affairs.[1] She was an opponent of the legalization of abortion in Argentina, voting against the 2020 Voluntary Interruption of Pregnancy bill that passed the Chamber.[7]
