It's Official: DeSorgher Running for Office

On Monday, Richard DeSorgher turned in his application papers.


Richard DeSorgher made it official on Monday -- he's running for a seat on the Board of Selectmen.

Selectman Ann Thompson will not run for re-election after serving 30 years on the board. This year she serves as Chairman of the Board. 

On Monday, DeSorgher turned in his nomination papers to Medfield Town Clerk Carol Mayer.

The election will take place on March 25. 

While only 50 signatures are required, DeSorgher said more than 40 volunteers canvassed the town over the past month and a half to collect a total of 1,000 signatures to make DeSorgher an official candidate for selectman. 

In December, DeSorgher sent a letter to Patch readers explaining why he is running for office. He says:

As a life-long resident of Medfield, I have been given much by the town and its citizens. As a strong believer in the view that “when much is given, much will be asked,” I feel an obligation to give back to my hometown and I now have the time, energy and ability to do so.

As someone who has come to know Mr. DeSorgher quite well through the years it is impossible to find someone more personally and intellectually qualified to represent the interests of Medfield residents. Richard is a truly unique individual whose passion for the town and its people is infectious the moment he warmly greets you. I continue to wish him all the best moving forward with his campaign for Selectman.
