BOSTON — In an email to their membership, Progressive West Roxbury/Roslindale announced the group’s support for Katie Forde for Suffolk County Register of Deeds in the September 4th Democratic Primary.
“The Register of Deeds office might be low profile, but the housing crisis certainly isn’t. The Register of Deeds can create and promote services so that more people learn how to buy a home, protect homeowners from scams, push for affordable housing, and more,” said Rachel Poliner of the Progressive WRox/Roz Steering Committee. That’s why we need a progressive Register of Deeds. We believe that Katie Forde’s priorities, diligence, and responsiveness will serve all Suffolk County residents well.”
Progressive West Roxbury/Roslindale, also known as Progressive West Rox/Ros, is a chapter of Progressive Mass. Their membership organizes to engage residents and amplify progressive values at every level of government. The Progressive Massachusetts platform is centered on shared prosperity, social and environmental justice, and good government.
“I am proud to have the support of my neighborhood’s most progressive residents,” said Forde. “Members of Progressive West Rox/Ros are fierce advocates and talented organizers, and we could not be happier to have them on our team.”
In her current role as a senior paralegal at Todd & Weld, LLP, Forde works with clients transferring and managing property in legal proceedings and estate matters. A legal professional who has worked for over 10 years with registries across the Commonwealth, Forde previously worked in a bankruptcy practice with families facing foreclosure. Katie and her husband Jeff are raising their twin daughters, Abigail and Cecile, in West Roxbury.
Forde has also been endorsed by Boston’s Ward 5 Democratic City Committee, Boston City Councilor At-Large Annissa Essaibi George, Boston City Councilor Matt O’Malley, State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz, State Representative Liz Malia, and Revere School Committee Member Carol Tye, Ironworkers Local 7, JP Progressives, and Run For Something.
