Sawyer's website highlighted the following campaign themes:
- On Jobs
- Excerpt: "We need incentives. Business owners can be encouraged to open their doors in our community through targeted incentives that encourage them to grow and expand here. We need to allow our businesses to hire more people and create new, local family wage jobs."
- On Education
- Excerpt: "This is a global economy and we need to recognize that our students are competing for jobs on a global level. We have a responsibility to ensure that our students are prepared – all children deserve the best chance at competing for the jobs of the future."
- On Crime
- Excerpt: "First it is important to recognize that prevention is far less costly than building prisons. Programs that focus on preventing crime - keeping young people in school and finding stable jobs for people willing to work- is a far better way to prevent crimes from occurring. But for those who refuse to follow the rules, the penalty must be swift and certain."
Sawyer won election in the 2012 election for Washington House of Representatives, District 29a. Sawyer advanced past the August 7 blanket primary election and defeated Terry Harder (R) in the general election, which took place on November 6, 2012.
