Woman of the Hour: Linda Dorcena Forry

Primaries? On April 30th?  The First Suffolk District are having their primary election for the Democratic Senate seat that day, along with the primary for the Massachusetts US Senate Seat.  This is a highly contested seat, and the MWPC has endorsed one woman who we believe is perfect for the job: Linda Dorcena Forry. 

Here are ten reasons why Linda Dorcena Forry is our candidate...
1. She has been a member of the state House of Representatives since 2005 and knows all the ins and outs of the state government
2. If elected, Linda will be the first woman of color elected to the seat
3. We can count on her to stand up for women’s reproductive rights
4.  She is an avid supporter of universal Pre-K and Kindergarten
5.  With a voting record that supports the LGBT Community, Linda has been endorsed by MassEquality and DotOUT
6.  She worked with the City of Boston's Department of Neighborhood Development for nearly a decade to strengthen our communities, while preserving their character
7.  She is a native Bostonian – The 1st Suffolk’s issues are her issues 
8. She is a supporter of the rehabilitation of the MBTA in and around Ashmont Station 
9. LDF was instrumental in legislation that now prohibits bullying and cyber-bullying in schools
10.  Linda has a really cute family
