"Conservative Champion for Iredell County & northern Mecklenburg"
Chairwoman of the Senate Transportation Committee
Vickie Sawyer is a state senator representing the 37th district, which includes Iredell County, the Town of Cornelius, and northern Huntersville. Her mission as a senator is to craft legislation that allows the citizens of her district the opportunity to realize the American Dream -- as she has. Vickie has taken the lead on a variety of issues important to her district, including transportation infrastructure, raising the age of child marriage in NC, and protecting schools and parents from the financial fleecing of high school athletics by its governing organization.
Schools have always been important to Vickie. Growing up in a trailer park in rural Davidson County, she saw that education was the key to creating a better life for herself and her family. After graduating as Salutatorian from Winston-Salem’s Parkland High School, Vickie became an honor graduate of UNC Charlotte and a NC Teaching Fellow. She served as PTO President, overseeing a fundraising campaign that raised $175,000 for upgrades to the school’s playground, running track, turf, and new equipment. Vickie also served as Board Chairman for the Iredell County Crosby Scholars, leading a successful bond campaign where voters approved $125 Million in funding for school construction.
With a diverse resume of jobs ranging from waitress to race team marketing “grunt,” Vickie and her husband Brett built their agency, Sawyer Insurance & Financial Services, from the ground up in 2002. It is now one of the largest agencies in Iredell County, serving over 4,200 households. Vickie and Brett are proud to call Mooresville home, along with their daughters Sydney and Braedy.
Vickie was first elected to the North Carolina Senate in 2018 after handily defeating a 17-term state senator in the Republican Primary Election.
