Baltimore County Democrats need to select an experienced community leader to replace Del. Stephen Lafferty in District 42A, Towson. (“Baltimore County Democrats have to fill two House of Delegates vacancies. Get your applications ready,” Sept. 5).

Cathi Forbes is the kind of leader we need. Her experience at the community, county and state levels runs deep. For more than a decade, she’s led Towson Families United. The organization successfully campaigned against school overcrowding and helped secure funds for the construction of two new schools and major renovations of three others. She’s also worked with Maryland General Assembly members to pass a hybrid school board bill and demonstrated her commitment to our community by advocating for a host of important issues from fair housing to marriage equality.

Ms. Forbes is a change agent who genuinely cares about our district. She would be an outstanding public servant and a great advocate for our community.

Brian Simpson, Towson
