By Christopher Roberson I n the days following the City Council’s 9-1 vote to make Anthony Carli the permanent fi re chief, the Everett Firefi ghters Local 143 Union is still waiting to hear from the Division of Labor Relations as to whether or not Carli had an unfair advantage in the promotion process. “He was provisionary chief for three-and-a-half years and all of the sudden they rushed to make him permanent chief,” said union President Craig Hardy. Hardy said that in May 2018, the union received a letter from City Solicitor Colleen Mejia stating that the city was considering using the Civil Service Assessment Center to select a fi re chief. “They knew they had an obMember FDIC Member SIF ligation to communicate with us,” said Hardy. The union replied saying E Friday, February 7, 2020 Union seeks answer to grievance over fire chief’s promotion that Everett had historically made promotions based on the score of the written civil service exam. However, Hardy said the union still off ered to negotiate with the city. “We never heard from them again,” he said. Hardy said that at this point, the union’s objective is to have the promotion process done over again. During the council’s January 27 meeting, Assistant City Solicitor Keith Slattery said Carli did not have an unfair advantage of any sort. “Chief Carli only had an administrative role,” said Slattery. “You have a valid and legal process.” In addition, council President Rosa DiFlorio said the council cannot engage in labor-related confl icts. “We are not here to get involved in labor negotiations,” she said. “We are here to protect the taxpayers.” Eagle Scout thanks Kiwanis At the Everett Kiwanis Club’s Holiday Dinner at Abbondanza Ristorante on Tuesday evening, Club President Rafael Santos accepted a handmade wooden plaque by Eagle Scout Jared Alphen, son of Kiwanian Matthew Alphen, thanking the Club for supporting his efforts.

Page 2 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 7, 2020 Lift Our Kids Coalition holds shoes-and-socks event to highlight needs of children in deep poverty T he Lift Our Kids Coalition joined State Senator Sal DiDomenico, State Representative Marjorie Decker and other legislators at the State House for an event to highlight the difficulty families receiving cash assistance face in meeting their children’s basic needs. As part of the event, shoes and socks were collected to benefit children in need. After the event, coalition members The Home for Little Wanderers and Cradles to Crayons are distributing donated shoes and socks to children they serve. The Coalition advocates for Massachusetts Bills S.36/H.102, An Act to lift kids out of deep poverty – whose lead sponsors in the Senate and House are DiDomenico and Decker, respectively.

Families living below 50 percent of the poverty level are considered to be in Deep Poverty. Under the bills, once grant amounts reach half the poverty level, the grant would be adjusted as the poverty level goes up with inflation and would no longer lose their value over time. “It is unconscionable that we have 50,000 children living so far below half of the poverty level in our Commonwealth,” said DiDomenico. “Children go to school without socks, wearing worn out shoes, because their families have to pay other bills. We can – and must – do better.” Sal DiDomenico State Senator Massachusetts Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children benefits are a maximum of $593 a month for a family of three, leaving thousands of Massachusetts children below the level of Deep Poverty, currently $905 a month for three. Costs have gone up, but grant levels have been frozen. As a result, the grant buys only half as much as it did 30 years ago. “Repealing the family cap made children equal regardless of when they were born, but they are still in Deep Poverty. Passing the bill this year would be the first step to bringing them halfway to the federal poverty level,” said Decker. “Toilet paper and soap should not be luxury items people can’t buy,” she added, LIFT OUR KIDS | SEE PAGE 17 La Hacienda opens on Broadway Mayor Carlo DeMaria, Lucy Pineda, Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins, Police Chief Steven Mazzie and the Mayoral Chief of Staff Kevin O’Donnell recently attended the grand opening of Everett's newest restaurant, La Hacienda, with owner Jose Callejas and his wife.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 7, 2020 Page 5 Restorative Justice program taking shape for middle school students By Christopher Roberson W ith the success of the Restorative Justice program at Everett High School, eff orts are now underway to implement the program at the middle school level. During the February 3 School Committee meeting, Paolo Lambresa, assistant principal of the Lafayette School, said the goals of Restorative Justice include facilitating peer relationships, respecting cultural diff erences and providing students with a sense of belonging. “Our students deal with a lot of trauma outside of school,” said Lambresa. He said the fi rst phase of implementing the program for middle school students began during the 2018-2019 academic year. “It’s a culture shift, you really have to change the building,” said Lambresa. Therefore, the program would not be rolled out until 2021. “It takes multiple years to do it right,” said Lambresa, adding that he was part of the fouryear implementation process at the high school. “We can’t just put a curriculum there without any training.” Lambresa said the district is being assisted by Estelle Archibald of the Institute for Restorative Initiatives at Suffolk University. Archibald also helped launch the program at the high school. Since Restorative Justice began at Everett High four years ago, Lambresa said, in-school suspensions have decreased by 65 percent, offi ce referrals have decreased by 42 percent and out-of-school suspensions have decreased by 44 percent. “We focused on creating a positive school culture,” said Lambresa. “It might sound little, but saying ‘good morning’ to someone can really make their day.” He also said that an out-ofschool suspension should only be used as a last resort. “No one wins when a student is externally suspended,” he said. “You JUSTICE | SEE PAGE 17 Easy Financing Available!

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 7, 2020 Page 7 Law Offices of Terrence W. Everett hockey closing in on postseason bid By Greg Phipps N ot since 2015 has the Everett High School hockey team made a trip to the Division 2 postseason tournament. It appears the Crimson Tide are going to end that drought this season. Entering this week’s action, the Tide stood at 9-4-1 and needed just one more point to claim a playoff berth. Sporting a roster consisting of just one senior and 13 players who are sophomores or younger (seven freshman), this year’s team, which includes fi ve players from Mystic Valley Regional Charter School, has perhaps exceeded the expectations of many. The play of junior goalie Derek Schovanec and the defense has been a big reason for the success so far.

The Tide battled neighboring rival Revere to a scoreless tie last Saturday at Allied Veterans Memorial Rink. Everett had its chances to score but couldn’t beat Revere’s goalie, freshman goalie Cam Wickens. Schovanec was just as effective in the Everett net, as he helped keep the visitors off the scoreboard as well. Tide head coach Alex Naumann said a few weeks ago that his young team appeared to be on a mission to reach the playoff s. Everett won fi ve games all last season and has supplanted that total by four with six regular-season contests left.

But the team has been on a roll since late December. The Crimson Tide have not lost a Greater Boston League (GBL) contest yet this year and have notched wins in 10 of their last 11 outings. The Tide celebrated their Senior Night on Tuesday with a convincing 74-32 home victory over league foe Malden. Guard Brandon Johnson was the lone senior honored and he was clearly revved up for the game. Playing pressure defense and making some big steals, Johnson ignited the Tide early, as Everett raced out to a 19-5 lead after one period. Visiting Malden settled down the pace for the early portion of the second quarter and began to inch back into the game, getting within eight at one point. But the Tide turned up the pressure again and built a 31-15 advantage by halftime. Everett would go on to outscore Malden by 20 in the second half and coast to the comfortable win. Head coach Stanley Chamblain said before the game that focus is the key to his team’s success over the remainder of the regular season. “We’re playing some decent basketball of late. We lost to Brookline last week and we didn’t play to our caliber in that game, but that’s going to happen throughout the long season,” he said. “Right now, we’re 11-3 and looking to go 12-3.” The Tide were coming off a 25-point victory over Medford late last week, and Chamblain said it was a strong reEverett’s Brandon Johnson reaches down to make a steal in Tuesday’s home win over Malden.

We were intense and assertive, and we came out aggressive on defense,” he said. “Where we’re at right now – we know what Everett forward Kevin Ariste boxes out while awaiting a rebound attempt in Tuesday’s Senior Night victory. we’re capable of. But we have a young team, so it’s a matter of maintaining consistency as we move on.” Owning a 12-3 overall mark (7-0 in the GBL) after Tuesday’s win, Everett hosts Brighton on Friday and plays at Somerville on Tuesday.

Page 10 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 7, 2020 Everett Advocate Celebrates Black History Month MATTHEW BULLOCK “Coaching pioneer and distinguished public servant” J esse and Amanda (Sneed) Bullock were parents on a mission. Born into slavery in North Carolina, both Jesse and Amanda were determined to claim their piece of the American dream and prepare their children to do the same. Shortly after the birth of their second son, Matthew on September 11, 1881, the Bullocks moved to Boston. Jesse worked as a day laborer wherever and for as long as his body would hold up. Through hard work and sacrifice, Mr. And Mrs. Bullock saved enough to buy a home and in 1895, the family moved to Everett and bought a home on Winter Street. Matthew, now 14 years old, began attending the Everett Public Schools where Matt was recognized for his academic and athletic ability, as well as his affable personality. Matt entered Everett High School in 1896 and made an immediate impression; especially on the football field where he started at left tackle as freshman. The 1896 and 1897 Everett High School football teams won Everett’s first two state championships with the legendary James “Hub” Hart running behind a stellar offensive line that included the young Matt Bullock. The 1898 season, however, would see the Everett team fall victim to infighting and discontent. Prior to 1902, the football team was coached by whoever was elected captain. The 1898 team was coached by team captain Chester Lothrop who resigned and was succeeded by future Everett mayor William Weeks. The situation got so bad that the team disbanded on November 16th thereby forfeiting three games. When the team gathered in 1899 to choose a new coach/ captain, it was important that they chose someone who could pull the fractured team together and regenerate team spirit and pride. The person they chose was senior left tackle and four-year starter Matthew Bullock; perhaps the first African-American to coach a predominately white high school. Under Bullock’s leadership and outstanding ability to open holes for his freshman running back and brother Henry Bullock (who would coach the team in 1901), the 1899 team would bring a third state championship to Everett. The local media praised Bullock not only for his play on the field but for his game prepawas blessed with a marvelous baritone singing voice…and sang professionally as a Dartmouth student and after he graduated.” (Worcester Telegram, Spring 1988 in Dartmouth Alumni Files). sible. The injury ended Matt’s season and college career; a season in which Walter Camp stated that, until the injury, he was sure to name the tackle as an All-American. He graduated from Dartmouth in 1904 and headed to Harvard Law School from which he graduated in 1907. To pay for law school, Bullock coached football; starting at Massachusetts Agricultural College (now UMass-Amherst) in 1904; which made him the first African-American to coach a predominately white college football team. He had a very successful first year as the team went 5-2-1 but for the next two years athletic department had trouble raising the $251.03 for a coach’s salary and Matt went to coach at Malden High School for the 1905 and 1906 seasons. In 1907, Massachusetts Agricultural hired Bullock back and he coach there for the next two seasons. He left there with a reputation for impeccable game preparation, an insistence on proper conditioning for his players and a record of 13-8-5. By 1909, Jesse Bullock’s MATTHEW BULLOCK ration and for the leadership that he brought to team and touted him as “good timber for a college tackle.” An outstanding student, Matthew entered Dartmouth College in 1900. The young man arrived at Hanover, NH carrying only one suitcase but with $50 dollars given to him by his hard-working father and equal to $1,428.57 in today’s dollars. While the relationship between Dartmouth and Matthew may have been originally based on his status as a star athlete, he quickly showed his diversity academically as a member of Paleopitas, the senior honors society, athletically in track where he specialized in broad jump and high jump for four years, in football where he was one of the college's top football players for three years and musically singing in the Church and Chapel Choirs and several glee clubs. According to one article from the Worcester Telegram, “he An incident in 1903, however, marred Matthew’s senior year at Dartmouth. Bullock and the Dartmouth team were scheduled to play Princeton in New Jersey and to stay at the Princeton Inn on campus. The Inn, however, would not provide accommodations for Bullock because he was black, so the team, unwilling to be separated from their teammate, stayed in New York City and made the fifty-mile trip to Princeton on gameday. On the first play of the game, a number of Princeton players piled on Bullock breaking his collarbone. Considering that Matt was a tackle and did not carry the call, the Dartmouth players were incensed and accused Princeton of purposely hurting Bullock because of his color. While the Princeton players did not deny purposely hurting Matthew, they claimed that it is their intention in every game to take out the best player as early as posyears of hard work began to catch up with him and on May 17th, he died from symptoms caused by diabetes and complicated by what doctors termed exhaustion. He was only 60 years old. Shortly after his father died, Matt accepted a position at Atlanta Baptist College (now Morehouse College) coaching football and teaching economics, Latin, history and sociology and eventually, he would Director of Athletics to his resume as well. With all that was going on in his life, Matt still had time for love and in 1910 he married Katherine Wright of Boston. Katherine, the daughter of Peter and Julia (Heatherlee) Wright was a fashionable dressmaker and milliner. The couple returned to Atlanta and Atlanta Baptist, but 1912, Matt was ready to practice law full-time and did so until 1915. He returned to academia as the Dean of the Alabama State Agricultural and Mechanical College for Negroes, now Alabama A&M, and also coached football there, as well. With the outbreak of World War I, Matthew attempted to enlist but was rejected because of what was called athletic heart, a condition commonly found in athletes who routinely exercise more than an hour a day, in which the human heart is enlarged, and the resting heart rate is lower than normal. Unable to serve in uniform, Matthew went to Camp Meade as an educational secretary of the Young Men's Christian Association organization which served the military forces. He was sent to France with the 3 69th Infantry, becoming a part of the American Expeditionary Forces. He served fifteen months in France and at the end of the war he chosen to represent the “Y” at the Burial of the Unknown Soldier. However, while in France, he was recommended for the Croix de Guerre for his leadership and bravery during his frontline service but the colonel of the regiment refused to approve it for reasons of bias. After the war, and with two children at home Matthew Jr., born in 1920 and Julia Amanda, born in 1921, he returned to Boston where he practiced law, served as executive secretary of the Boston Urban League and in 1925 received his first public appointment when Republican Attorney General Jay R. Benton appointed him as a Special Assistant Attorney General. Bullock served in that capacity until 1927 when Republican Governor Alvan Fuller appointed him to the State Board of Parole and the Advisory Board of Pardons. While Matt’s legal training and commitment to the safety and welfare of the public served him well on the Parole Board, on one occasion so did his time on the gridiron. After denying him parole, a convict charge angrily at Bullock but Matthew quickly wrestled him to the ground rendering him helpless until guards could take him into custody.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, February 7, 2020 Page 11 Everett Advocate Celebrates Black History Month Walter Carrington “U.S. Ambassador” By Michael Matarazzo T here is no way one can capture the spirit of Walter Carrington by the written word. His resume, while certainly impressive, does not tell the full story. His own words better express this man’s heart, and most of the quotes are from his essay, “Remembrance of an Atypical Black American Boyhood” published by the Harvard Book Store in “Paige Leaves: Essays Inspired by New England.” Walter Charles Carrington was born July 24, 1930, in New York City, N.Y., to Marjorie Irene Hayes Carrington and Walter Randolph Carrington, an immigrant from Barbados. His mother and father divorced, and Walter and his sister came to live with his father’s family on Cedar Terrace. At the time Everett was a predominantly Italian-Irish community. In his essay, “Remembrance of an Atypical Black American Boyhood,” he recalled, “My younger sister, Marilyn, and I were the only black kids on the block in a town that was a sociological anomaly. I would learn many years later, while a Commissioner on the Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, that an Urban League study had found my Everett to have been the least segregated city of its size in the country. So assimilated did I, as a youngster, become to my heavily Italian neighborhood that I could curse in Italian, with a Sicilian accent, almost before I could in English.” Walter was very popular throughout his public school years – being elected vice president of his class at both Parlin Junior High and Everett High School. This puzzled Walter; as he quipped in that same essay, “I was a popular kid in a sports obsessed town who was not an athlete. Our high school football teams were legendMATTHEW | FROM PAGE 10 ernor Leverett Saltonstall convinced him to serve on the Parole Board again. Bullock continued in that position until his retirement. Matthew Bullock’s reputation soon expanded beyond academia and Massachusetts state government when, in 1945 as WWII was coming to an end, he was asked by Secretary of the Navy, James Forrestal, to serve on a commisAmbassador Walter Carrington as Grand Marshal of the City of Everett’s 125th Anniversary Parade (Photo by Katy Rogers) ary. They won more state and national championships than any other. They were memorialized in Look Magazine. The basketball team was a state power house. Jocks were the most popular group in school. Yet I, who excelled, not on the field but on the stage as a debater and orator, was each year elected Vice President of a class of five hundred of whom but five were black.” Walter graduated from Everett High in 1948, and at encouragement of his Everett High guidance counselor took the entrance exam and was admitted to Harvard. “I often read in the national black newspapers tales of horror about white high school guidance counselors steering promising black students away from college careers to vocational ones. I was blessed to have one who insisted that I should settle for nothing but the best. With his encouragement I got into Harvard.” Carrington was one of only four black students at Harvard University at the time. At Harvard, he founded the first Harvard chapter of the NAACP. and, as its Youth Council delegate, he was also vice chair of the Students for Stevenson organization when Adlai Stevension to investigate relations between black and white enlisted men in the Pacific theatre. This assignment, a sense of great pride to Matthew, resulted in a report that began the process of racial integration of the United States Navy. Matthew was unable to relish in his accomplishment however as 1945 was also the year that his beloved Katherine died. Bullock would continue to work for several more years son campaigned in 1952 as the Democratic candidate for President. Carrington graduated from Harvard with a Bachelor of Arts (A.B.) degree in 1952. Like many young men at the time, Walter was drafted into the United States Army in 1955, where he served as a clerk typist in Germany, eventually being assigned to the Judge Advocate General Corps. After his discharge, he enrolled in Harvard Law School, earning his J.D. degree in 1958. He practiced law in Boston and served on the three-member Massachusetts Commission Against Discrimination, becoming, at the age of 27, the youngest person to be appointed a Commissioner in the Commonwealth’s history. At the MCAD, he was in charge of the case which led to the Boston Red Sox, the last remaining all white Major League Baseball Team, hiring their first black player – “Pumpsie” Green. It was the establishment of the Peace Corps in 1961 and Carrington’s appointment as one of its first overseas Country Directors that began the historic relationship between Walter Carrington and the continent of Africa. Walter served 10 years in the Corps that included directing programs in Sierra Leone, Tunisia and Senbut his attention was gradually turning toward his Baha’i Faith that he had accepted in 1940. Starting in 1953, Matthew spent his winters in Curacao, Netherland West Indies as a member of the Baha’i community. Bullock often made public appearances on behalf of the Baha’i Faith and served as a member of the National Spiritual Assembly of the Baha’i Faith in the United States. For his efforts in opening egal and rising to the position of Regional Director for Africa. After serving with distinction in the Peace Corps, the following decade saw Carrington serve as executive vice president of the Africa-America Institute, and as a member of Africare. He also taught at Marquette University in Wisconsin, the Massachusetts Institute of Technology and Washington College in Maryland and served as a consultant at the Joint Center for Political and Economic Studies. In 1980, Carrington served for a year as President Jimmy Carter’s Ambassador to Senegal. In 1981, he was named director of the Department of International Affairs at Howard University. In 1991 Carrington, along with Edwin Dorn, published “Africa in the Minds and Deeds of Black American Leaders.” In 1993, Carrington, who had served as a senior advisor on Africa to the Clinton Transitional Team, was appointed by the President as Ambassador to Nigeria. The newly appointed Ambassador was to assume his post just as the military was voiding the democratic election recently held in that country. Still, his appointment began on a positive note for it was during the very first diplomatic function that he attended as ambassador that he met Dr. Arese Ukpoma, an intelligent and impressive physician. She would become Mrs. Carrington in 1995, while continuing to add to her already stellar record of service to humanity. During his tenure in Nigeria, Carrington consistently challenged the Nigerian government on the questions of democracy, human rights and drug trafficking. The dictatorship of General Sani Abacha was firmly committed to discrediting Ambassador Carrington and blamed him for every shortcoming in U.S.-Nigenew territories to the Faith during its Ten-Year Crusade from 1953-1963, he was given the title Knight of Bahá’u’lláh and his name was added to the Roll of Honour that stands beneath the entrance door to the Shrine of Bahá’u’lláh; the most holy place for Bahá’ís. By 1967, he moved to Detroit where his daughter lived and with his health gradually diminishing he entered a nursing home. In 1970 Harvard University conferred upon him rian relations. However, the attitude of the Nigerian government did not deter the Ambassador from standing firm in defense of the values that he held so dear. The situation was so bad that even a farewell reception held in his honor was interrupted by armed police who threatened to shoot one guest and ordered all foreigners, including the Ambassador, to leave at once. This shocked many in the diplomatic corps, but not Ambassador Carrington, who saw the dictatorship as a self-serving government that was wasting a talented population and vast natural resources for its own gain. After the fall of the dictatorship, the Nigerian government surprised Carrington by naming the diplomatic area of Lagos after him. Today, Water Carrington Crescent is the location of more than 12 diplomatic missions. In 2017, Everett celebrated its 125th Anniversary as a city. Upon learning that he was to be the Grand Marshall of the Anniversary Parade, Carrington with his trademark humility told the Everett Independent newspaper, “I was really overwhelmed when I learned I would be Grand Marshal because I still have a soft spot for Everett, because without Everett, I might not have become the person I became had I grown up in another place that wasn’t so accommodating,” he said. “To be remembered and honored like this is more than I can put to words. It’s a great honor to me.” Accomplished, intelligent, humble, principled, honest and loyal – it is Everett that is honored to call Ambassador Walter C. Carrington a favorite son. —EDITOR’S NOTE: Michael Matarazzo is the former Everett city clerk and the author of "They Came from Everett" available at bookblues.com. an honorary degree and in 1971, Dartmouth College and honored him with the honorary degree Doctor of Laws.

We hope to see you as an applicant! THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records the votes of local senators from the week of January 27-31. There were no roll calls in the House last week. NEXT GENERATION CLIMATE PACKAGE (S 2476, S 2477 and S 2478) Senate 36-2, 36-2 and 36-2 on three separate roll calls, approved three bills known as the “Next Generation Climate Package.” Under the bills, the Baker administration would be free to choose among various market-based forms of pricing carbon—including a revenue-neutral fee or a regional “cap and trade” system similar to the Transportation Climate Initiative. —It would have to do so by Jan. 1, 2022, for transportation; Jan. 1, 2025, for commercial, industrial and institutional buildings; and Jan. 1, 2030, for residential buildings. Any mechanism would be implemented so as to minimize the impact on low-income households, disadvantaged communities, and vulnerable manufacturing sectors. The package includes setting a statewide greenhouse gas limit for the year 2050 of “net zero” emissions; requiring the MBTA to limit bus purchases and leases to zero-emissions vehicles beginning in 2030, and to aim for an all-zero-emissions fl eet by 2040; directing state government to limit purchases and leases of vehicles to zero emissions vehicles only, beginning in 2024; and updating Massachusetts appliance standards to improve energy and water effi ciency standards for common household and commercial appliances. Other provisions establish the Massachusetts Climate Policy Commission as an independent public watchdog to oversee government’s handling of the climate change crisis; jumpstart eff orts to supply lowcost solar electricity to low-income communities; and require the Department of Public Utilities to balance six priorities: reliability of supply, aff ordability, public safety, physical and cyber security, equity, and significantly, reductions in greenhouse gas emissions. “We’ve written the strongest climate statute in the nation,” said Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), Senate Chair of the Utilities and Energy Committee and author of the legislation. “The bills started out strong. Then they got better as the debate went on. More protection for low- and moderate-income families. Special sensitivity to the climate challenges facing small towns and rural areas. Retraining for people who may need to change jobs as we green the economy. In the fi ght against climate change, this lifts Massachusetts to the next level.” “We applaud Senate President Spilka and the Massachusetts Senate for this signifi cant step forward in addressing the climate crisis,” said Jacob Stern, Deputy Director of the Sierra Club Massachusetts Chapter. “By setting a much-needed 2030 emissions target, rolling out zero-emission building standard and creating new opportunities for low-income residents to access solar, today’s legislation will help reduce the state’s carbon pollution. However, we are disappointed that despite broad support from the advocacy community, there wasn’t a commitment to transition the state to 100 percent clean, renewable electricity in the fi nal legislation. The responsibility to act now falls to the Massachusetts House of Representatives. We look forward to working with House leadership to pass critical climate policies into law before the end of the 2019-2020 legislative session in July.” “Climate change is a real problem with humans adding to the issue through carbon emission,” said Sen. Dean Tran (R-Fitchburg), one of only two opponents of the package. “We need to implement changes that would reduce human carbon footprint responsibly. Bills that do not have cost and impact analysis will have devastating fi nancial consequences on people who are on fi xed and low incomes, and the working class. These bills will create burdens on small businesses and will negatively impact the economy and stifl e growth." “I am proud of the Senate for acting quickly on this legislation which takes a historic step in our fi ght to reduce harmful emissions that hurt our planet and our residents,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “I commend Sen. Barrett for his diligence in crafting a thorough legislative package that takes concrete steps to combat climate change by providing a plan to create a greener, healthier and more sustainable future.” “Residents of the commonwealth can’t aff ord this legislation. Massachusetts continually ranks as one of the most expensive states in which to live where the median price for a single-family home is almost double the national average,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), the other opponent of the legislation. “This bill will only make housing prices more expensive by requiring solar panels on all new construction, which will increase development costs for new homes by $30,000 to $70,000. Nearly all new homes will also require electric based heating systems and appliances, placing upward pressure on utility rates across the state because wood, natural gas and oil-based appliances would be out of compliance with a net-zero stretch energy code. Fattman continued, “Another major concern is that there is no price tag on the total costs of the mandates, taxes, and fees associated with this legislation … We are currently facing an unprecedented aff ordable housing and transportation crisis and this legislation will only make it more unaff ordable to live and work in Massachusetts.” (The vote below represents the vote on each of the three separate bills. A “Yes” vote is for the package. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes PILOT PROGRAM FOR GEOTHERMAL ENERGY (S 2477) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment making it clear that the Department of Public Utilities should approve gas company pilot programs to deliver renewable thermal energy. The amendment also ensures evaluation by independent third parties to determine the effi cacy of the new systems. “My amendment gives gas companies an opportunity to move away from delivering a greenhouse gas containing over 90 percent methane and toward providing renewable thermal energy for heating and cooling,” said Sen. Cynthia Creem (D-Newton), the sponsor of the amendment. “Natural gas is not healthy for us or the planet, while geothermal energy is a path to keeping good jobs, protecting ratepayers and giving customers a choice for heating.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes REGIONAL EQUITY (S 2477) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment that would require that when the Secretary of Energy and the Environment submits his 5-year plan for how the state will comply with the emissions limits established in the climate bill, the plans must “address the distinguishing characteristics and vulnerabilities of rural, suburban and urban households.” “The two words that go best together are “regional equity,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “What we are here saying today is yes to carbon pricing, but we cannot do that if we disproportionately burden rural communities where we drive more and where we do not have adequate access to public transportation. So yes to carbon pricing, but through a regional equity lens.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes 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 late-night 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 January 27-31, the House met for a total of 16 minutes while the Senate met for a total of ten hours and eleven minutes. Mon. January 27 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:07 a.m. Senate 11:10 a.m. to 11:14 a.m. Tues. January 28 No House session Wed. January 29 No House session Fri.

Whitson assured the committee that Everett’s curriculum is delivered in a meticulous manner depending on the age of the students. “In our program, these topics, which are highly sensitive to some, are presented age-appropriately and with less detailed information on the middle school level,” she said. In addition, Whitson said the central part of the curriculum is presented to all students using HealthSmart. “It is comprehensive based on research and best practice,” she said. Whitson said the district also uses Get Real for students in grades 6-12 and Botvin LifeSkills Training for students in grades 5-12. She said sex education classes meet once every six to seven days on the middle school level and every other day for high school students. Whitson said letters are sent to middle and high school parents 30 days before the start of the sex education unit. She also said parents can elect to have their child excused from certain parts of the curriculum. Whitson said the district’s Parental Notification Policy appears to comply with the Healthy Youth Act. However, Interim Superintendent of Schools Janice Gauthier asked the committee members to review the letters and make any revisions they deem necessary. LIFT OUR KIDS | FROM PAGE 2 “certainly not people in Massachusetts.” The Lift Our Kids Coalition, which is comprised of 127 organizations, is led by the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute and Greater Boston Legal Services. The Coalition organized in late 2016 to advocate for repeal of the welfare family cap, the law that barred benefits for children conceived while the family received assistance. The Legislature repealed the family cap in 2019 by an almost unanimous vote. About 11,000 previously excluded children are now receiving benefits, but the benefits are so low that families still struggle to pay for necessities like children’s shoes and socks.
