Photo of District 5 councilwoman Amanda Sawyerl

Amanda Sawyer is a licensed (although non practicing) attorney who also has a Master's of Business (MBA) and more than a decade of experience in marketing, sales, entrepreneurship and business strategy. You might recognize her as the candidate that has purple hair, which she always tells people "I might drive a minivan but I still have my soul." 

Councilwoman Sawyer is a proud neighborhood advocate. She has been active in the community and working with neighbors like you to:

  • Advocating for stoplights and crosswalks for our kids. 
  • Speaking out at City Council against building more luxury condos that don't fill a need for middle-income housing in our communities but add to our traffic and safety problems. 
  • Asking for meetings with big developers to find out how many mid-priced units they’re planning to put in their new buildings. 
  • Partnering with the City to close an illegally-operating short-term rental operating in our neighborhoods. 

Amanda has lived in Colorado off and on since 1989. She and her family returned to Denver in February 2016 because their oldest daughter was diagnosed with special needs and knew they needed to come home to the support of their family and friends. Amanda and her family love this community, live in the greatest city on the planet and are so grateful to be home!
