Amanda was inspired to run for Denver City Council because of the challenges that face families in Denver. She is a successful entrepreneur with a JD/MBA, and she is a licensed Colorado attorney. As a special-needs parent and mother of three girls, Amanda's candidacy is rooted in her family and our community. She uses the local schools, parks, roads, and businesses every day. She cares deeply about our neighborhood's safety, property values, and economic future.
The Sawyers are raising their family twelve blocks from Amanda's mother, three miles from her brother, two hours from her father and stepmother, and down the street from her roommate from CU. Even if you haven’t met Amanda in person, you would recognize her instantly because of her signature purple hair, which she's had for years. Amanda claims it says “I might drive a minivan but I still have my soul.” Next time you run into her, stop and say hello!
