Forde challenges Murphy in re-match of Register of Deeds contest

“The county position is a largely administrative role that supervises land records in Boston, Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop. But Forde— a self-identified progressive Democrat— sees the office as an opportunity to create more home ownership and to close the wealth gap.

‘I’m not okay with what it is now, which is just this figurehead position that has basically been this landing pad for politicians who are finished elsewhere,’ Forde said in an interview with the Reporter this week. ‘You need someone in there who’s not just in there for a retirement plan.’”
