Patrick Mcdermott Officially On Ballot For Norfolk County Sheriff With Over 1,000 Nomination Signatures Submitted
Quincy, MA, May 28, 2020 – Patrick McDermott, Democratic candidate for Norfolk County Sheriff, announced today that he is officially on the ballot having collected over 1,400 nomination signatures. McDermott turned in the required certified signatures and nomination papers to the Secretary of the Commonwealth’s office, ensuring his place on the Democratic ballot this September.
Patrick McDermott’s vision for the Norfolk County Sheriff is to expand the role, serving as the county’s “chief public safety officer,” making the office a central resource for all the communities in Norfolk County for more than just crime prevention.
“In times like these, we have seen communities step up to provide services and information, but what is clearly lacking is a central, coordinated effort to share information, resources and services for the people of Norfolk County. I believe the Sheriff’s office can fill that need and provide additional support necessary for communities and ensure the safety of everyone in Norfolk County,” Patrick McDermott said.
Patrick currently serves the residents of Norfolk County as the Register of Probate, a position in which he has seen wide praise for his clear and efficient management of the county’s probate and family courts. As Register of Probate, McDermott works with communities across the county to help connect residents to services and facilitate the administration of justice.
“My work as Register of Probate has prepared me for the county-wide responsibilities of Sheriff, and I look forward to continuing my commitment to the families of Norfolk County as Sheriff,” McDermott said.
The Democratic Primary for Norfolk County Sheriff will take place Tuesday, September 1st.
