Katie Forde has poured energy and passion into the Suffolk Registry of Deeds race.

Yes, you read that right.

For the second time, the West Roxbury resident is running hard for the obscure office, which manages land records in Boston, Chelsea, Revere, and Winthrop.

Forde almost won the Democratic primary in 2016, finishing second in a divided field against Steve Murphy. Now she’s his sole opponent, barnstorming candidate forums where Murphy’s nowhere to be seen.

The Globe endorses Forde in the Sept. 4 Democratic primary. If the way she’s campaigned is a sign of how she’d run the registry, the county would be lucky to have her.
