Attorney Will Reichelt

Will currently serves as the Town Attorney of West Springfield, appointed by Mayor Sullivan last June.

Before this, Will’s town service started in 2008 when he was appointed by then Mayor, Ed Gibson, to the Planning Board. Shorter than a year later he was selected to represent the Board on the Community Preservation Committee and as the Town’s representative to the Pioneer Valley Planning Commission. While continuing to serve in these capacities he was also appointed to West Springfield’s Housing Authority, the Town’s state funded community housing commission.

After graduating with a Bachelor of Science in Business Administration from Westfield State, Will worked as a retail store manager before attending graduate school. Continuing to build his experience throughout law school, Will interned at both the District Attorney and public defender’s offices, as well as the Housing Court, while also working for HAP Housing in Springfield as a Hearing Officer and for the Town of Agawam as a law clerk.

Earning both a Juris Doctor and a Masters of Business Administration from Western New England University, the Town of Agawam promoted Attorney Reichelt from part time law clerk to be their only full-time attorney. Shortly thereafter he was recruited by Mayor Ed Sullivan to serve to be West Springfield’s first full-time attorney.

Will, a 2004 graduate of West Springfield High School, has lived in West Springfield his whole life and strives to continue his service to the town he loves by becoming West Springfield’s next Mayor.
