Healey endorses Forde for Suffolk County Deeds seat

Attorney General Maura Healey has thrown her endorsement weight to a woman who hopes to unseat Suffolk County Register of Deeds Stephen Murphy next month. Katie Forde, a senior paralegal at Todd & Weld, LLP, earned Healey’s nod last week.

“Katie Forde has demonstrated her commitment to advancing our shared values as a passionate activist and leader and I’m honored to endorse her as the next Register of Deeds,” said Healey in a press release.

“She will be a strong partner in government and a chief advocate for consumers, homeowners and economic justice, particularly as families and seniors face a deepening housing crunch across Massachusetts.”

Forde has already been endorsed by state Sen. Sonia Chang-Diaz, state Rep. Liz Malia, Boston City Councillor-At-Large Annissa Essaibi George and District 6 Councillor Matt O’Malley.

Forde will face off against incumbent Register of Deeds Stephen Murphy on Sept. 4.
