Special Election Announced for Massachusetts 12th Suffolk Representative District
A special election for the Massachusetts 12th Suffolk Representative District has been called to fill a vacancy caused by the resignation of Rep. Linda Dorcena Forry.
The office of the Secretary of the Commonwealth William Galvin announced the special primary election will be held on August 13. The special general election will follow on September 10.
Forry resigned from the House of Representatives to become state senator for the First Suffolk District. On May 29, she won the Senate seat in a special election held to replace Sen. Jack Hart, who resigned to take a job in the private sector.
