DeMaria cites bright future for Everett in midterm address By Christopher Roberson F ocusing on the ideals of pride, progress and possibilities, Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently shared his overall vision to keep Everett moving forward. “To me, this serves as a homage to who we are, a refl ection on what we’ve accomplished and a call to action for innovation and implementation,” he said during his midterm address on January 6. “Time after time, we prove that we are more than a city; we are a community.” Highlighting the city’s advancements and future opportunities, DeMaria spoke about how the building which formerly housed Everett High School was transformed into the city’s Health and Wellness Center. Looking ahead, he said the Center will off er space for the Girl Scouts, a community boxing gym and an Immigrant Community and Learning Center. “In the interests of serving the needs of all of our residents, to give a voice to those not always so easily heard, my administration is in the process of implementing the Offi ce of Diversity, Equity, and Inclusion,” he said. “We hope that the creation of this offi ce will assist in continuing the progress we have already made to enhance the lives of all our residents.” The city has also garnered $70,000 to fund senior programming. “The Connolly Center has been recognized by the Vol. 29, No.2 Friday, January 10, 2020 Free Every Friday www.advocatenews.net State as one of the most successful centers in Massachusetts,” said DeMaria. He also announced plans to renovate the building later this year. “The renovated Center will include a bowling alley, exercise room, art room and other stateof-the-art features in the basement level of the Center, thus utilizing every inch of the building,” said DeMaria.

In addition, DeMaria said he plans to make City Hall the “true home and heart of our community.” He said free WiFi and community spaces will be available and also a Mobile City Hall service. “Select members of my administration will be coming to you to hear your concerns and to off er their assistance in any way that they can,” said DeMaria, adding that traffi c and code enforcement hearings will be conducted on FaceTime and Skype.

These proposals were previously proposed in bills fi led by the administration for Fiscal Year 2019 (FY19) and are now being refi led for Fiscal Year 2020 (FY20). “This legislation will provide additional resources to enhance the safety of MBTA infrastructure, improve local schools and support testing for PFAS contamination in drinking water supplies,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “We look forward to working with the Legislature to pass this bill into law and deliver these much-needed investments.” “Our Administration is committed to supporting growth and development for our community partners throughout the Commonwealth,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “These meaningful investments support public transit, health care and education priorities in a responsible manner and provide needed funding for local municipalities across Massachusetts.” The bill provides the MBTA with $18 million, which, with the $32 million authorized in the FY19 final supplemental spending bill, allows for a total of $50 million to support additional staff, contractors and other resources necessary to expedite the completion of critical capital projects, enable proactive inspections to detect and address safety and reliability issues before they impact service, and implement enhanced maintenance procedures to ensure the reliable operation of MBTA vehicles and infrastructure. The bill authorizes $4.2 million to test drinking water supplies for potential per- and poly-fluoroalkyl substances (PFAS) contamination. This testing would support state and local efforts to determine the scope of the problem and identify best solutions, and it supplements the $4.2 million authorized in the FY19 fi nal supplemental bill. The bill also proposes transferring $10 million to the Twenty-First Century Education Trust Fund. This request FILES | SEE PAGE 17

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 3 Shayna Foppiano: Everett’s newest boxing sensation Shayna Foppiano (center) was recently recognized by the Everett City Council for her accomplishments as an undefeated professional boxer. (Advocate Photo by Katy Rogers) By Christopher Roberson P lagued by a troubled childhood, Shayna Foppiano was frequently bullied growing up in Everett and often found herself running from her fears — then, six years ago, she found boxing. “Initially, I started boxing for a workout; I immediately fell in love, I was hooked,” she said. “The confi dence it gave me was something I hadn’t felt before. I fi nally felt like I didn’t need to run from anyone and that was very powerful.” Foppiano is coached by Joe Lake, who has also mentored a number of successful boxers, including Micky Ward, Joe Rogan, Dana Rosenblatt and Everett’s own Richie Lamontagne. “Working under Joe Lake has changed my life in so many positive ways,” said Foppiano. “I don’t know where I would be right now if I didn’t meet him. She had to convince Lake to be her coach. “When I told Joe that I wanted to be a fi ghter, he told me that he never trained women and he only trained professional fi ghters,” said Foppiano. However, she vowed to do everything in her power to prove herself. “He agreed but told me that I would need to work harder than I ever have in my life and that we would go straight to professional,” said Foppiano, adding that most boxers must fi rst advance through the amateur ranks. “It took three years, every day in the gym until he felt I was ready to fi nally step into the ring and make my professional debut.” In 2018, Foppiano signed with CES Boxing following her fi rst professional bout. She has since gone undefeated with her next fi ght slated for January 31 against Crystal Byers of Ohio. The event will be held FOPPIANO | SEE PAGE 18 Currently undefeated, professional boxer Shayna Foppiano of Everett next will take on Crystal Byers of Ohio on January 31.

DeCoste is the author and lead sponsor of HD.4711, An Act prohibiting the Commonwealth from participating in the transportation climate initiative, which would prohibit Massachusetts from entering TCI or any similar program without the specific approval of the legislature. The bipartisan bill currently has 13 sponsors. “The manner in which TCI is being pursued is completely undemocratic and in violation of our state constitution, which very specifically mandates that these types of taxes originate from the House of Representatives,” said MassFiscal Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Craney. “Even if Governor Baker believes he has the legal authority to bypass the legislature, which is in dispute, he should still bring it before the legislature.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 13 Middlesex Sheriff’s Office warns of Social Security scam B ILLERICA – The Middlesex Sheriff’s Office (MSO) is warning residents to be alert for a recently reported government imposter scam. On Monday the MSO received a call from an area resident alleging he had been contacted by a man purporting to be with the IRS. The alleged perpetrator told the resident his Social Security number (SSN) had been canceled because it had been compromised and used in Texas by criminals; the perpetrator further told the resident his bank accounts had been frozen as a result and that a MSO representative would be following up with additional details. A short time later, the resident said he received a call from an individual posing as an MSO member and was told that two deputies would collect his old Social Security card and issue him a new card and number. In an eff ort to further convince the resident the call was legitimate, the alleged perpetrator used spoofing technology to make it appear as though the call was coming from a legitimate sheriff ’s offi ce telephone number. “It’s critically important for residents to be aware that Lawrence A. Simeone Jr. Attorney-at-Law ~ Since 1989 ~ their Social Security numbers cannot be canceled or suspended,” said Middlesex County Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian. “Fortunately, in this case, the resident felt something was amiss and followed up with our offi ce to confi rm this was a scam.” People who believe they have been the victim of this, or any, imposter scam are encouraged to contact their local police department.

In addition, DeMaria described his plan for a “healthier Everett.” “We have long been plagued with an extremely high obesity rate, particularly among our school age youth,” he said. “We teach our kids how to do everything except how to eat right.” Therefore, a Community Food Plan Assessment was conducted during 2017 and 2018, which led to the genesis of the Food Policy Council. A new food service program was also created last summer, during which time Whitsons Culinary Group was selected as the schools’ new food service provider. “Whitsons has made great progress with our school lunches so far,” said DeMaria. “Although in my opinion, they could use some improvement with the breakfast options.” Regarding the opioid crisis, DeMaria said Everett received more than $40,000 for Narcan training and overdose prevention. As a result, the number of fatal overdoses in Everett has dropped by 41 percent. However, the fi ght continues to penalize those responsible. “Everett was one of the fi rst municipalities to sign on in a national lawsuit against the pharmaceutical companies who are to blame for the opiDEMARIA | SEE PAGE 16 SUCCESS STORY: Mayor Carlo DeMaria and his wife Stacy watch the swearing in ceremonies while waiting to make his midterm State of the City Address.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 17 FILES | FROM PAGE 2 reframes Baker’s 2018 recommendation that the Legislature transfer $50 million into a fund for school improvement. The recently enacted Student Opportunity Act established the Twenty-First Century Education Trust Fund “to address persistent disparities in achievement among student subgroups, improve educational opportunities for all students, share best practices for improving classroom learning and support effi ciencies within and across school districts.” “The Commonwealth is expected to have sufficient revenues to fi nance these appropriations and measures in Fiscal Year 2020,” said Secretary of Administration and Finance Michael J. Heff ernan. “This supplemental spending proposal continues the Baker-Polito Administration’s focus on improving public infrastructure, services and programs in a reliable and fi scally disciplined way.” The supplemental spending bill also includes: • $16.3 million and a related authorizing section to ratify a recently concluded collective bargaining agreement • $12.3 million (for a total of $16.3 million including FY19 funding) for Safety Net Provider Hospitals to mitigate the cost of providing care to un- and underinsured patients • $5.4 million for service improvements for men who are civilly committed for substance use disorder treatment under Section 35 of Chapter 123 of the General Laws • $5 million to support high school students enrolled in Early College programs that give thousands of Massachusetts students, especially fi rst-generation college-goers, access to college completion and career success • $3 million for the Community Compact program to support grants for cities and towns that have entered compacts with the Commonwealth to support public interests and develop mutual standards for governing effectively In total, the supplemental budget bill consists of $74.2 million in supplemental appropriations, at a net state cost of $68.1 million.

There is also a possibility that Foppiano could have a match at Encore Boston Harbor this summer. In addition, the City Council recognized Foppiano for her accomplishments during its meeting on December 23, 2019. “Being recognized by the Everett City Council and my community was such an honor for me,” said Foppiano. “The city of Everett raised me; I still live in Everett now and I’m so proud to be from the City of Champions. I will continue to work hard so I can carry on that tradition for my city.” She also described how women’s boxing has fl ourished over the years. “There have always been talented women, but they weren’t getting the same attention as now,” said Foppiano. “Finally allowing women to enter the Olympics in the London games in 2012 was a huge staple for women’s boxing. Since then, many talented female fi ghters have been creating a lot of noise and showing why we belong. I’m very proud to be one of the women striving for greatness in such a male-dominant sport.” LAW OFFICES OF JOSEPH D.

AICPA Personal Financial Specialist Designee SUPERIOR COURT CASE WIN REGARDING LIMITED POWER OF APPOINTMENT A December 9, 2019 Worcester Superior Court decision reversed a Board of Hearings decision denying MassHealth benefits for a nursing home resident due to deemed countable assets of an irrevocable trust. The applicant first applied for MassHealth benefits on March 2, 2018. MassHealth denied her application on April 28, 2018. On July 27, 2018, there was a hearing held by the Board of Hearings due to the applicant filing for an appeal of the denial. On December 18, 2018, the Board of Hearings rendered a decision that upheld MassHealth’s denial of benefits. The applicant then filed for a Mass General Laws Chapter 30A appeal with the Superior Court. The provision at issue was the following: “The Donor reserves a limited or special power of appointment, exercisable during her lifetime, to appoint the remaining principal and any undistributed income, outright, or upon trusts, powers of appointments, conditions or limitations, to such person or persons, among the members of the class consisting of the Donor’s issue of all generations or charitable organizations other than governmental entities, but no such power or payment shall be used to discharge a legal obligation of the Donor.” The Superior Court judge stated that the fact that the Donor can appoint (i.e. distribute) trust assets to children or grandchildren, for example, does not lead to the conclusion that the children or grandchildren will give the assets back to the Donor thereby in effect giving the Donor access to Trust principal. If the Donor, under any circumstances, can have access to Trust principal, the Trust will fail and the Trust’s assets will be countable in a Medicaid determination. The Court further stated that a special or limited power of appointment can only be exercised in favor of a permissible appointee and that it cannot be exercised in favor of an impermissible appointee. By definition, the Donor of a special power of appointment cannot appoint to himself or herself thereby preventing access to Trust principal under any circumstances. The Court went on to say that “it is fundamental that a trust instrument be construed to give effect to the intention of the Donor as ascertained from the language of the whole instrument considered in light of circumstances known to the Donor at the time of its execution.” The Court cited the Supreme Judicial Court’s decision in Heyn, where the Supreme Court stated “ a provision making Trust principal available to persons other than the Donor does not by its nature make it available to the Donor, any more than if the Donor had gifted the same property to such persons when she created the Trust, rather than placing it in Trust.” This was an extremely important decision. We hope that hearing officers will all adopt this ruling at future hearings if MassHealth attempts to attack a Trust provision dealing with special powers of appointment.

Can you recommend some monitoring technology devices or any other solutions that can help me keep tabs on him? Exhausted Spouse Dear Exhausted, This is a concern for millions of Americans caring for a loved one with dementia at home. About 60 percent of people who suff er from dementia wander at some point, according to the Alzheimer’s Association. For caregivers, this can be the GPS SmartSole) also provide two-way voice communication and auto pickup speakerphone so you can talk to him if he does wander off . Locating Services If the previously listed options frightening because many of those who wander off end up confused and lost, even in their own neighborhood, and are unable to communicate who they are or where they live. Here are some product and service solutions that may help. Simple Solutions For starters, there are a number of simple home modifications you can do to keep your husband from wandering away. Some solutions include adding an extra lock on the top or bottom of the exterior doors out of the line of sight or installing door alarms on the exterior doors that let you know when they’re opened. See AlzStore.com for a variety of product solutions. And, be sure you hide the car keys to keep him from driving. You should also alert your neighbors that your husband may wander so they can keep an eye out and have a recent picture of him on hand to show around the neighborhood or to the police if he does get lost. Monitoring Technology For high-tech solutions, there are a variety of wearable GPS tracking devices available today that can help you keep tabs on him. Some top options to consider include AngelSense (AngelSense.com), which can be attached to clothing or worn around the waist; wristwatches like the Theora Connect (TheoraCare.com) or NurtureWatch (NurtureWatch.com); and the GPS SmartSole (GPSSmartSole.com), which is a shoe insole tracker. All of these products come with smartphone apps that would alert you if your husband were to wander beyond a pre-established safe area and would let you know where to fi nd him if he did. These products (except don’t work for you, there are also locating services – like the MedicAlert + Safe Return program (MedicAlert.org/alz) and Vitals Aware Services (TheVitalsApp. com) – that can help you if he does wander off . The MedicAlert + Safe Return program comes with a personalized ID bracelet that would have your husband’s medical information engraved on it, along with his membership number and the toll-free MedicAlert emergency phone number. If he goes missing, you would call 911 and report it to the local police department who would begin a search, and then report it to MedicAlert. Or, a Good Samaritan or police offi cer may fi nd him and call the MedicAlert number to get him back home. The Vitals Aware Service works a bit differently. This is a free app-based network system that comes with a small beacon that your husband would wear. If he did go missing, anyone in the Vitals app network community that came within 80 feet of him would receive an alert and information about him so they could contact you. Another option that could help, depending on where you live, is a radio frequency locater service like SafetyNet and Project Lifesaver, which are off ered by some local law enforcement agencies. With these services, your husband would wear a wristband that contains a radio transmitter that emits tracking signals. If he goes missing, you would contact the local authorities who would send out rescue personnel who will use their tracking equipment to locate him. Visit SafetyNetTracking.com and Projectlifesaver.org to see if these services are available in your community. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 Page 21 two-thirds of the Democrats always voted with DeLeo. The Democratic representaWith today's edition, The Everett Advocate begins coverage of the 2020 Massachusetts legislative session with our weekly Beacon Hill Roll Call report. This feature is a clear and concise compilation of the voting records of local state representatives and senators. Beacon Hill Roll Call provides an unbiased summary of bills and amendments, arguments from floor debate on both sides of the issue and each legislator's vote or lack of vote on the matter. This information gives readers an opportunity to monitor their elected officials' actions on Beacon Hill. Many bills are reported on in their early stages, giving readers the opportunity to contact their legislators and express an opinion prior to the measure being brought up for fi nal action. Beacon Hill Roll Call is written and provided by owner/publisher Bob Katzen, a former Boston radio talk show host at WRKO, WITS and WMRE. Bob has been providing this feature to hundreds of newspapers across the Bay State for 45 years since 1975. Bob invented the “Bagel Route” when he was 10 years old. It’s like a paper route but Bob took pre-orders from neighbors and delivered bagels every Sunday morning. THE HOUSE AND SENATE. The House and Senate began the 2020 legislative session last week with its usual ceremonies, always with much pomp and circumstance. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate. This week Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on how often local representatives voted with their party's leadership in 2019. The votes of the 2019 membership of 31 Republicans were compared with those of GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). The votes of the 2019 membership of 126 Democrats were compared to House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 121 votes from the 2019 House session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not quorum calls or votes on local issues. A total of 82 (65 percent) of the 126 Democrats voted with DeLeo 100 percent of the time. That means that nearly tive who voted the lowest percentage of times with DeLeo is Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) who voted with DeLeo only 73.2 percent of the time. She is followed by Reps. Patrick Kearney (D-Scituate) 76.1 percent; Russell Holmes (D-Boston) 77.9 percent; Angelo Scaccia (D-Boston) 81.6 percent; Denise Provost (D-Somerville) 83 percent. Only two (6.4 percent) of the 31 GOP members voted with Jones 100 percent of the time. The Republican representative who voted the lowest percentage of times with Jones was Rep. Mike Soter (R-Bellingham) who voted with Jones only 88.5 percent of the time. He is followed by Reps. David DeCoste (R-Norwell) and Peter Durant (R-Spencer), both at 90 percent; and David Vieira (R Falmouth) and Tim Whelan (R-Brewster) both at 91.5 percent. BLINDLY FOLLOW THE LEADER?–Below is a reprint of a Beacon Hill Roll Call exclusive story from February 2019. It might help readers to understand why so many Democratic representatives vote with House Speaker Bob DeLeo 100 percent of the time. The House uses a large electronic voting board that shows how each representative votes on a roll call. Members press a button at their desks and their vote appears next to their name on the board for everyone to see. When a representative votes “yes,” a green light appears next to his or her name. When he or she votes “no,” a red light appears next to his or her name. On January 30, the House was debating the joint rules under which the House and Senate would operate in 2019-2020. House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop) rarely presides over a session and this day was no diff erent as Rep. Tom Petrolati (D-Ludlow) was the acting speaker and the presiding offi cer calling the shots. As the debate dragged on, House GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) off ered an amendment that would repeal a rule, used for the fi rst time in 2018, that prohibited the appointment of a conference committee after July 17, 2018. A conference committee is a six-member committee appointed by the House speaker and the Senate president to work out a compromise version of a bill when the House and Senate approve diff erent versions of the measure. Jones spoke in favor of his amendment and no one spoke against it. His amendment was non-controversial. Jones said that the new rule, pushed by the Senate leadership in the rules adopted for the previous two-year session, was designed to have more legislation acted upon and more transparency. The rule forces lawmakers to appoint a conference committee well before July 31 after which the rules basically make it impossible to appoint a conference committee because the House and Senate meet only in brief, informal sittings a couple of days a week until the annual session ends at the beginning of January 2019. The rationale was that a conference committee often takes weeks to hammer out a compromise bill and any committee appointed after July 17 would likely not have time to reach an agreement. Critics say that the new rule backfi red and failed to accomplish its intent. Each branch had approved diff erent versions of an important $666 million economic development package but it was after July 17 – too late to appoint a conference committee under the new rule. The House and Senate on July 23 began meeting behind closed doors and then sending diff erent versions of the bill to each other until the Senate ended up accepting a new House version which neither House or Senate members had any time to read. Despite that, on July 31, the House approved the package 151-0 and the Senate passed it 36-0. Gov. Baker signed the bill after vetoing several sections. Seconds after the roll call on the Jones amendment began, Acting Speaker Petrolati and Speaker DeLeo both voted “no” and a red light appeared next to their names. According to House rules, the acting speaker (Petrolati) actually casts the vote for the speaker and a court offi cer casts the vote for the acting speaker. As is often the case, many Democrats quickly took their cue from DeLeo and Petrolati and voted “no” as well. This is not an uncommon occurrence in the House. In this case, it was at least 63 Democrats who played “follow the leader” and voted “no.” As the board began to fi ll up with “no” votes, Petrolati apparently took notice and talked into a microphone he didn’t know was on. “It’s a yes?” “Switch ‘em. Yes, yes, yes, yes, Mikey,” shouted Petrolati to Division Leader Mike Moran. Suddenly, DeLeo and Petrolati’s votes switched to “yes.” And then 63 Democrat who had initially voted “no” suddenly switched his or her vote to “yes.” The House’s only unenrolled non-party affi liated member Susannah Whipps (U-Athol) had also voted “no” and then switched to “yes.” There may have been more than 63 Democrats who fi rst voted “no.” While the “no” votes appeared on the electronic voting board for a brief time, once the switchers changed their vote to “yes,” there was no longer a permanent record of the “no” vote. Beacon Hill Roll Call watched a videotape of the session in order to see who voted “no” at the beginning. The camera pans the scoreboard a few times but there is no guarantee we were able to spot every red light. You can see the story unfold by watching the video of the January 30 House session at https://malegislature.gov/ Events/Sessions/Detail/3297. Fast forward on the counter to 5:35:49 and watch it until 5:37:39. It all happened in a little over two minutes. To the reader and viewer, this appears that these 63 Democrats simply watched how DeLeo and Petrolati voted and blindly followed their lead and voted “no.” And then switched to “yes” when DeLeo and Petrolati switched to “yes.” Did these 63 even know what they were voting on? Did they care? What would cause them to switch their votes other than they decided to follow the “suggestion” of the speaker? Beacon Hill Roll Call set out to fi nd the answers and over the course of three days, sent two e-mails to each of the 63 Democrats who had fl ipflopped. The only response was from Rep. Paul Donato, a member of the leadership team who also usually acts as the acting speaker and presides over the sessions. Donato gave a brief explanation basically saying that there was confusion surrounding the vote and some members mistakenly voted “no” and then had to switch to “yes.” Not a single one of the other 63 representatives responded to our e-mails. Here are the 63 Democratic representatives and one unaffi liated non-party member who switched their votes from “no” to “yes. James Arciero (D-Westford), Brian Ashe (D-Longmeadow), Bruce Ayers (D-Quincy), Christine Barber (D-Somerville), John Barrett (D-North Adams), Jennifer Benson (D-Lunenburg), David Biele (D-South Boston), Antonio Cabral (D-New Bedford), Daniel Cahill (D-Lynn), Daniel Carey (DEasthampton), Gerard Cassidy (D-Brockton), Michelle Ciccolo (D-Lexington), Claire Cronin (D-Easton), Daniel Cullinane (D-Boston), Mark Cusack (D-Braintree), Marcos Devers (D-Lawrence), Daniel Donahue (D-Worcester), Paul J. Donato (D-Medford), Michelle DuBois (D-Brockton), Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston), Lori Ehrlich (D-Marblehead), Dylan Fernandes (D-Falmouth), Carole Fiola (D-Fall River), Sean Garballey (D-Arlington), Colleen Garry (D-Dracut), Kenneth Gordon (D-Bedford), Jim Hawkins (D-Attleboro), Stephan Hay (D-Fitchburg), Jonathan Hecht (D-Watertown), Kevin Honan (D-Boston), Louis Kafka (D-Sharon), Mary Keefe (D-Worcester), John Lawn (D-Watertown), David LeBoeuf (D-Worcester), Jack Lewis (D-Framingham), David Linsky (D-Natick), Jay Livingstone (D-Boston), Elizabeth Malia (D-Boston), Ronald Mariano (D-Quincy), Paul Mark (D-Peru), Christopher Markey (D-Dartmouth), Joseph McGonagle (D-Everett), Rady Mom (D-Lowell), Frank Moran (D-Lawrence), James Murphy (D-Weymouth), David Nangle (D-Lowell), Harold Naughton (D-Worcester), James O'Day (D-West Boylston), Jerald Parisella (D-Beverly), Smitty Pignatelli (D-Lenox), Dave Robertson (D-Tewksbury), Paul Schmid (D-Westport), Alan Silvia (D-Fall River), Theodore Speliotis (D-Danvers), Thomas Stanley (D-Waltham), Jose Tosado (D-Springfi eld), Paul Tucker (D-Salem), Chynah Tyler (D-Roxbury), Andres Xavier Vargas (D-Haverhill), Aaron Vega (D-Holyoke), John Velis (D-Westfield), RoseLee Vincent (D-Revere), Thomas Walsh (D-Peabody), Susannah Whipps (U -Athol). Beacon Hill Roll Call sent an e-mail to and asked the opinion of the 94 representatives who had not switched their votes and seemed to vote “yes” from the beginning. Only three of those members responded. A veteran Statehouse observer, who spoke on condition of anonymity said that is not surprising because those 94 representatives do want to antagonize the speaker by talking about “Follow the Leader.” “Welcome to the House of Representatives,” said Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston). “This is exactly how the House runs itself and the members should be ashamed. The speaker is like a shepherd leading a fl ock of sheep. Some BEACON HILL | SEE PAGE 22

Page 22 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 BEACON HIL | FROM PAGE 21 members may have known what they were voting on and may have even agreed with Brad Jones. However, agreement with Brad does not matter if it confl icts with the speaker. This is particularly the case in the rules debate as the speaker has given orders to all Democrats that he wants no changes and that he is taking notice for consideration of leadership and committee assignments. We term the statements and speeches in rules debate as ‘community auditions.’” “ The public is well informed,” continued Holmes. “Many know that the only reason these Democrats changed their votes is because they await their instructions on all votes from the speaker. Members do not think of what is in the best interest of their districts but instead they consider what is in the best interest of themselves by voting with the speaker. This disenfranchises the voters who sent them to the Statehouse. I refuse to arrive in the building and hand over the voice and power of my constituents to the speaker. The best way to eliminate this hypocrisy is to bring pay equity to the building and pay all the members the same regardless of positions in leadership or committee. I was a ‘yes’ vote and voting with Brad before seeing how the speaker voted. Ideas should rule the day.” "I think that every representative has had the experience at one time or another of casting a vote only to have a colleague come and talk to them and explain an issue perhaps in different terms which may cause them to change their mind,” said Rep. Joe McKenna (R-Webster). “I think that is okay. Unfortunately, what we saw during the rules debate is entirely different and is something that we have seen numerous times in my two-plus terms. It's simply a 'follow-the-leader' mentality where members seem to take their sole direction from the color of the light next to the speaker's name with apparently little awareness or concern for the matter being voted on or its content. Leaning on colleagues for guidance and advice is okay, but the type of blind following we saw takes it too far." Chip Ford, Executive Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation: “Captured red-handed on video doing what The Best Legislators Money Can Buy do best – mindlessly following the leader. What a real-time votes tote board exposed through an embarrassing glitch is revealing of what’s so wrong on Beacon Hill. Good catch Beacon Hill Roll Call.” "Too often, House Democrats will vote in lockstep with the speaker, whether he's right or wrong, without doing their own due diligence about what they are, in fact, voting on,” said Jonathan Cohn, Chair of the Issues Committee of Progressive Massachusetts. “Legislators should come to their own conclusions about bills and amendments based on their own promises and principles and the input from advocates, policy experts, and their own constituents — not just on how the speaker chooses to vote … The House had a long debate about its rules, but for the rest of the session, there needs to be a serious debate about the norms by which the chamber operates and how badly they are in need of a change." PERCENTAGE OF TIMES REPRESENTATIVES VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2019 The percentage next to the representative's name represents the percentage of times the representative supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the representative opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some representatives voted on all 121 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll call. The percentage for each representative is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Rep. Joseph McGonagle 100 percent (0) HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK'S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature's job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of December 30-January 3, the House met for a total of one hour and two minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 20 minutes. Mon.

Page 26 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, January 10, 2020 MASSFISCAL | FROM PAGE 11 bipartisan bill continues to gain support every day. This bill is exactly the kind of bipartisan response we need to this abuse of executive power, and we hope more legislators will stand up for their rights as elected representatives of the people and join in sponsoring the legislation,” said Craney. On December 17, 2019, TCI announced in a memo of understanding that under their proposal CO2 emissions in the transportation sector would be reduced by 1-6% over the next decade. TCI acknowledged that without passing TCI, transportation carbon emissions would decline by IS YOUR HOME NEXT? The Revere Real Estate Listings are brought to you by: BUYER2 Murkidjanian, Andrew W Divers, Sadler Correia, Antonio Costa, Cleyton S Correia, Leilane G SELLER1 Pisapia, Gale L SELLER2 19 percent during that same time. MassFiscal believes that not entering into TCI, while still seeing a 19 percent reduction in carbon emissions, is a much better solution. “TCI is a carbon tax being administered through a gasoline and diesel tax. TCI would essentially impose a ‘sin tax’ on gasoline and diesel similar to those on alcohol and tobacco products. Unlike smoking and drinking, driving isn’t optional for the hardworking residents of the Commonwealth,” said Craney. The list of TCI opponents also continues to grow outside of Massachusetts. New Hampshire Governor Chris Sununu announced on December 17 that his state would be withdrawing from the TCI agreement after details of the plan were finally unveiled. Vermont Governor Phil Scott has repeatedly emphasized that he is against any and all carbon taxes, and even the Vermont AFL-CIO recently came out publicly against the TCI scheme. 53 Jackson Street Saugus, MA 01906 781-813-3325 REAL ESTATE TRANSAC TIONS Copyrighted material previously published in Banker & Tradesman/The Commercial Record, a weekly trade newspaper.
