Mass Alliance endorses candidates who request our endorsement and who have a clear record of supporting our values. We are proud to endorse these progressive champions:
Mass Alliance is proud to endorse progressive activist Jay Livingstone in his Democratic primary run for State Representative in the Massachusetts 8th Suffolk District. Jay has been a community activist and grassroots organizer in Boston for years and was a lead organizer for such independent progressive candidates as Elizabeth Warren, Deval Patrick, Mac D'Alessandro, and Suzanne Lee. A leadership member of Boston's Ward 5 Democratic Committee, Jay is also a board member of the Beacon Hill Civic Association, and is clerk of its Zoning and Licensing Committee as well as an employment discrimination and criminal defense attorney.
As an Assistant District Attorney, Jay saw first-hand the negative impact of budget cuts across the Commonwealth: at-risk youth ended up in trouble with police instead of receiving the social services that they needed. Jay will work to restore social programs so that at-risk youth, seniors, and low income families receive the help that they need. Jay has also shown that he is the candidate who will fight to ensure access for all children to high-quality public school, from early education through college, as well as advocate for a much-needed public school in his own district. With Jay at the helm the 8th Suffolk will have a strong and effective progressive leader who will effectively fight to improve our public schools, preserve social programs, lower health care costs, strengthen public transportation, and work towards sensible local development.
State Representative Linda Dorcena Forry is a native Bostonian. Mass Alliance is proud to endorse State Representative Linda Dorcena Forry in her run for the Massachusetts Senate in the 1st Suffolk district. Linda currently serves the Commonwealth's 12th Suffolk district in the Massachusetts House of Representatives and is the only Haitian-American elected official at the State House.
As a State Representative, Linda has championed improvements to the state's education system, job creation, and business development efforts. As House Chair of the Joint Committee on Community Development and Small Business, Linda was successful in passing major healthcare and economic development legislation designed to ease the burden on small business while promoting growth. Linda is a strong fighter for accessible education, LGBT rights, and women's issues in addition to her background in worker rights protection and small business support. Linda remains committed to community development efforts across the state, access to high-quality healthcare, housing affordability, effective public safety policies, growth of emerging technologies, and preservation of the state's precious natural resources.
