VOTE EARLY!

"Sawyer is a respected and needed voice for common sense in Topeka"


-Wichita Eagle Editorial 10/23/14

"He works across party lines to reach solutions -the type of lawmaker we need in Topeka"


-Wichita Eagle Editorial 10/27/16

"Some play politics, but I am not like that, Sawyer says, and his record in the legislature backs that up."


-Wichita Eagle Editorial 

"While he was in leadership, some party members grumbled that he wasn't partisan enough.  But that is what made him so effective.  And since returning to the Legislature two years ago, he has continued to reach across the aisle to get things done."


-Wichita Eagle Editorial

"I'm pleased to see that your'e still fighting the good fight and striving to make a positive difference for Kansans"


-Former Governor Bill Graves

"I wish you well in your re-election effort and in the challenging tax of restoring Kansas..."


-Former Governor Bill Graves

"Mr. Sawyer, a Wichita accountant, is the sort of citizen advocate you'd like to see in every race at every level of government.  He is a quick mind.  He's informed and opinionated.  He comes up with good ideas, then sticks with them.  He's also a nice guy with an engaging enthusiasm and respect for public service."
