Mike Dorcey successfully filed his candidacy for the position of Lyon County commissioner for the 2nd District by petition Monday. He will run as a Democrat for the office.
"I'm running because we face tough decisions in the coming years," Dorcey said. "I want to help make those decisions. We need leadership with common sense to choose what's best for all."
Dorcey said he filed by petition because it enables him to contact his base early in the campaign.
"It gave me a chance to get out and work in some of the precincts," Dorcey said. "It was great to meet people and talk about what's on their mind. I look forward to meeting more people throughout the 2nd District as I move into the campaign."
Dorcey has lived in Lyon County for nearly nine years. He currently is employed as a sales representative by Kansas Radio Inc. ("The Wave"). Dorcey brings to his campaign broad experience in administrative and communications positions, both in private business and public institutions. Prior to his current position, he worked as a newspaper reporter; magazine editor; public information specialist, military public affairs specialist and community relations director.
Dorcey is an Army Vietnam veteran and was also stationed in Japan for four years. He is a graduate of the Defense Language Institute. He retired from the Kansas Army National Guard as a master sergeant. He holds a bachelor's degree in history from Creighton University and has done graduate work at Emporia State University in library science. Dorcey is a member of the 2004 class of Leadership Emporia.
Dorcey said that the idea of service to his community and to others is an important value to him, one he believes is critical in a representative of the people.
"We need a servant who will listen," he said. "You can't find out what's on people's minds if you're always talking. My record of service to this county emphasizes that idea. And I think the kinds of activities I've been involved in reflect my commitment to progress."
Dorcey was one of the principal leaders in the conception, fund raising and construction of Emporia's Peter Pan Playground in 2008. In 2011, he was chair of the Lyon County Community Organizations Active in Disaster (COAD) that organized the reception and coordinated the work of more than 1,400 volunteers during the week after a tornado hit Reading on the evening of May 21. Since that time, he has chaired the Reading Long-Term Recovery Committee that has overseen the disbursement of more than $200,000 in donated funds to aid the residents of Reading in their recovery. Dorcey was one of three LC-COAD members activated on Feb. 29 to help Wabaunsee County form a similar volunteer reception operation to help with the relief of Harveyville after a tornado struck there on Feb. 28.
Dorcey and his wife Denise have two children, Jack and Anne.
