The new MA Attorney General will play a key role in our state’s ongoing foreclosure issues. Foreclosure starts are up 72% over last year – as MAAPL predicted. We have evidence of thousands of illegal foreclosures, and hundreds of thousands of broken chains of title to mortgages sitting in our Registries of Deeds! We need the RIGHT Attorney General for the Commonwealth to address these issues and bring justice to Massachusetts homeowners!

Attend to ask the candidates about their positions – Warren Tolman will be with MAAPL at 11:00 am and Maura Healey will be with us at 3:00 pm in front of the Richardson home.
