In The News:

An editorial in the August 17, 2006 edition of the Akron Beacon Journal, "A Matter of Science," said this:

"Sawyer brings "impressive credentials to the school board race. He is a former teacher and, most telling, a former lawmaker who has been deeply involved in education at the state and federal level."
"Fink referred to Sawyer supporters as ``just a small group of dogmatic scientists.'' Hardly. Their numbers are many."

"They grasp the critical need for a rigorous science curriculum, one that avoids detours into the realm of faith. In Tom Sawyer, they have a candidate who recognizes the difference this election can make." Read the editorial in its entirety here.
