Under the city’s Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance, developments with more than 10 units are required to have a minimum of 10 percent aff ordable housing. However, Martins wanted to know how the Ordinance is enforced after a development has been approved by the Planning Board and Zoning Board of Appeals. “How are we keeping track of it?” she asked. “Are they continuing to build and waiting to see what happens, if they’re going to get caught or not?” Martins also asked if a tutorial could be available to assist developers who have smaller projects. In addition, she suggested creating a page on the city’s website where developers can advertise their aff ordable housing units and lottery information. “I haven’t heard of any aff ordable housing lotteries,” said Martins. She also recommended partnering with Metro West Collaborative Development in Newton to provide further assistance with the implementation of aff ordable housing.

Pressley visited EHS during its special Charity for Children with Hair Loss event, which was conceived by student and cancer survivor Sarai Velez. Dozens of students, teachers, and staff donated their hair for children with cancer and alopecia (an auto-immune disease that attacks hair follicles). Pressley is one of the nearly seven million Americans who live with alopecia and she has used her position to positively raise awareness and compassion about the physical and emotional toll the disease exacts. “At a time of national hardship and uncertainty, I continue to be inspired by the compassion and aspiration of our students—and my visit to Everett High School last week only affi rmed that,” said Pressley. “I had the opportunity to discuss public service with AP Government students, participate in Sarai’s event for children with traumatic hair loss, and with a group of Everett students with disabilities about disability advocacy. My heart is full and I remain optimistic about the future of our Commonwealth and our country.

An Everett High student is enthralled by the chance to meet and talk to U.S. Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley on April 14 at Everett High School. The Everett Public Schools extends its deepest gratitude to U.S. Congresswoman Ayanna Pressley for visiting Everett High School on April 14. The Congresswoman spent more than three hours at EHS, visiting an AP Government class and holding an intimate discussion with the members of the Youth Disability Empowerment Club. In between, she met dozens of students and staff , took countless photos, and thoroughly engaged everyone she interacted with.

It is not an exaggeration to say that our students were in awe of her,” said Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani. “We cannot thank her enough for making this a genuinely impactful day for the entire EHS community.” Pressley, who represents the n Seventh District of Massachusetts, was welcomed to Everett High by administrators and students, including seniors Shawn Shiek and Breetika Maharjan and sophomore Emerson Pineda Chacon. The fi rst stop was Carolyn MacWilliam’s AP Government class, where Pressley spoke to students about her path to Capitol Hill and answered questions.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 22, 2022 Page 3 Obremski presents ambitious fi ve-year Capital Improvement Plan By Christopher Roberson L ooking ahead over the next fi ve fi scal years, Assistant Superintendent of Operations Charles Obremski recently outlined a series of capital requests totaling approximately $17.6 million. He said the district is seeking an investment of $6.7 million to fund the Capital Improvement Plan (CIP) for fi scal year 2023. The largest item in this CIP is a $2 million request to install modular classrooms at the Keverian School. “This is a big ask. I don’t know if this is possible,” Obremski said during the April 5 School Committee meeting. The school was originally designed to accommodate 650 students; however, enrollment has now climbed to 950 students. Therefore, Obremski said, modular classrooms would alleviate overcrowding at the Keverian School. Because the modular classrooms would be located in the front of the school, he said, it is possible that 16 parking spaces could be lost. School Committee Vice Chairman Michael McLaughlin agreed that action is needed. “The Keverian School is a growing problem; this one is growing exponentially,” he said. However, he also said modular classrooms may not necessarily be the solution. “I would hate to see us make a shortterm solution for a long-term problem,” said McLaughlin. Other requests include $500,000 for a new parking lot at the Madeline English City offers fi rst ESL classes On Saturday, April 16, Mayor Carlo DeMaria, in collaboration with the Everett Adult Learning Center and Parlin Memorial Library, held the fi rst free class to teach English as a second language. Students at the program began to learn English and brought their children to participate in fun activities, such as creating and coloring pictures. When the class fi nished, the children were surprised with an Easter egg hunt outside of the library. There were plenty of eggs fi lled with chocolate for the children to fi nd. The City of Everett would like to thank the Institute of Museum and Library Services and the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners for awarding the grant funding to make this class possible and remain free to participants. Assistant Superintendent of Operations Charles Obremski recently spoke about the district’s Capital Improvement Plans through fi scal year 2027. (Photo Courtesy of the Everett Public Schools) School, $500,000 to replace the ceiling at the Whittier School and $600,000 to replace the clocks and phone system throughout the district. Obremski said he and his colleagues looked at the phone systems in Somerville and Melrose and at Essex North Shore Agricultural and Technical School in Danvers. He also spoke about investing $300,000 to put classrooms in the space that formerly housed the Anna May Powers Health Center at the Keverian School. “We’re looking to get that done ASAP,” said Obremski, “if we could even get the money from the city now so we can get this project started.” The CIP budget for fi scal year 2024 currently totals $2.6 million. It would include $1.2 million to replace the Honeywell Automation System at Everett High School, $650,000 to replace the wall around the parking lot at the Parlin School and $500,000 for new drain pipes at the Adams School. Thus far, the largest request of the entire fi ve-year plan is expected in fi scal year 2025. At that time, the district will be seeking an investment of $3.5 million to make the Parlin School completely handicapped-accessible. However, Obremski said this request is nothing new. “This has been ongoing for a number of years,” he said. “We keep coming before you with this request.” In addition, $1 million would be needed to replace the roof at the Lafayette School, $250,000 to replace wall air conditioners at the Parlin School and $150,000 for a new parking lot at the School Administration Building. The total for that year’s CIP is $5.2 million. The CIP for fi scal year 2026 totals $2.3 million. Within that fi gure, the district would be requesting $1 million to replace the roof at the Madeline English School, $750,000 to replace the roof at the Keverian School and $608,261 for two new Air Cooling Condensing Units (ACCU) at the Lafayette School. So far, $626,622 would be requested to fund the CIP for fi scal year 2027. That amount would be used for two new ACCUs at the Madeline English School. The School Committee voted unanimously to revisit the matter at its next meeting on April 25.

Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 22, 2022 Everett partners with American Red Cross M ayor Carlo DeMaria recently announced that the city is partnering with the American Red Cross to hold the Sound the Alarm Event on Saturday, May 14 from 9 a.m. to 2 p.m. Volunteers will be installing free smoke alarms to those who make an appointment. Seven people die every day from a home fire, and working smoke alarms can cut the risk of dying in a fire in half. The City of Everett is hoping to help change that by installing free smoke alarms in as many homes as possible. Preparing for an unpredictable disaster like a house fire by ensuring your home has properly working smoke alarms is an important precaution to take. To schedule an appointment, please call 1-800564-1234, or you can learn more by visiting www. SoundTheAlarm.org/MA for English speakers and www.ActivaTuAlarma.org for Spanish.

City receives another $825K in CDBG funding F By Christopher Roberson or the second time this year, the city has received a Community Development Block Grant (CDBG) totaling $825,000. The fi rst CDBG grant for the same amount was awarded in February. Therefore, Everett has received a total of $1.6 million in CDBG funding this year. Planning Director Matthew Lattanzi said $40,000 will go to Housing Families Inc., $60,000 will go to Bread of Life, $35,000 will go to For Kids Only and $30,000 will go to Mystic Valley Elder Services. The remaining $438,000 will be used to support the Housing Rehabilitation Program. “Assuming an average allocation of $36,500 per unit, this equates to twelve units eligible for rehabilitation,” said Lattanzi. “Residents can apply for zero percent interest loans COUNCILLOR | FROM PAGE 1 lo DeMaria, said the Planning Department always informs new developers of the city’s Inclusionary Zoning Ordinance. “We’ve had conversations with developers to make sure that they understand the number of units that they’re required to do,” she said, adding that there have been no major violations. “We haven’t had any pushback when they understand what that is going to be.” In terms of enforcement, (781) 321-8841 • (617) 571-9869 1236 EasternAve • Malden Deveney said the Inspectional Services Department is responsible for monitoring each property to ensure that the affordable housing requirement is fulfi lled. “The goal is to encourage smart development in the city,” she said.

Deveney said that individual will be responsible for working for home repair projects and, if the property owner continues to own and live on the premises for a certain number of years, the loan is 100 percent forgivable.” Like the February grant, the city received the maximum amount available from the state Department of Housing and Community Development. “These funds go a long way in supporting organizations, which utilize the funds to directly benefi t Everett residents,” said Lattanzi. He said CDBG funds are used for projects and programs that are not included in the city’s annual budget. One example of this use is the Homeowner Rehabilitation loan program. “This provides a direct benefi t to homeowners who occupy the houses that they own,” said Lattanzi. “The loans are dedicated solely to income-qualifi ed individuals. They are completely forgivable if the individual remains in the house for a certain amount of years, thus encouraging our longtime residents to apply for the grant, rather than investors capitalizing on the grant.” He said that in prior years CDBG funds have been used for aff ordable housing projects, Housing Production studies and small business assistance. CDBG money can also be used to defray the cost of projects even if they are funded by the city. Although this is not the case for this year’s budget, Lattanzi said the funds have been used to reduce of the cost of budgeted items, including park designs, beautification projects and an awning program for Broadway businesses. “By funding these, it helps to mitigate the total city budget, which means the fi nancial burden is lessened on the taxpayer,” he said. with state offi cials and nonprofit organizations to find funding sources for aff ordable housing. “We have an organization that is going before the Planning Board right now because they want to do 100 percent aff ordable development,” said Deveney, adding that such a project is a prime example of how aff ordable housing funds could be used. Regarding lottery information, Deveney said the lottery for the Townhomes at St. Therese has ended. However, she said the lottery for The 600 Apartment Complex will be held in the coming months. “I’m not aware of any other lotteries going on right now,” she said. The committee voted unanimously to refer the matter to the Mayor’s Offi ce. Spring is Here!

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 22, 2022 Page 5 Cordoba is Everett’s top female runner in Boston Marathon By Christopher Roberson S porting a time of 4:36:47, Alexandra Cordoba, 28, was the top female runner to represent Everett in the 126th Boston Marathon on April 18. Out of the six Everett participants, she finished second behind David Pirman, 39, who recorded a time of 4:15:59. Cordoba said she ran the marathon for the first time in 2019; however, a medical emergency forced her to stop just shy of 25 miles. “It was devastating to say the least,” she said. Cordoba said her training for this year’s race began in December 2021. “I trained on the actual course every Saturday morning with a bunch of the other charity teams,” she said, adding that she was running to raise money for the Gillian Reny Stepping Strong Center for Trauma Innovation at Brigham and Women’s Hospital, and “The Stepping Strong Center was born out of the 2013 Boston Marathon bombing tragedy. Our team was able to raise more than $1.3 million for the Stepping Strong Center this year.” Cordoba also recognized her team’s coach, John Furey. “John organizes training calendars, educates us on injury prevention and supports us the entire way through,” she said. Speaking about the course itself, Cordoba said that for her, the most challenging section comes after mile 17 when runners encounter the infamous Newton Hills. Her favorite part of the course comes after reaching the crest of Heartbreak Hill. From there, the course takes runners through Cordoba’s alma mater, Boston College. “It was extra special and something I’ve always said I would do after being there Alexandra Cordoba, 28, of Everett, crossed the finish line of the 126th Boston Marathon on April 18. She was Everett’s top female runner with a time of 4:36:47. (Courtesy Photo) during the tragedies of the 2013 marathon,” she said. Cordoba said she began running in 2016 while living in New York City. “Once I started to build a community of other runners around me, I knew that I could start challenging myself to go farther and tackle my goal of Boston,” she said. “The most enjoyable part of running has by far been the camaraderie of the charity teams and running for a purpose greater than myself.” Other Everett runners in this year’s marathon included Kara Pilotte, 33, who finished with a time of 4:44:35. She was closely followed by Filippo Mastrocola, 50, who recorded a time of 4:46:49. The final two Everett residents to complete the race were Erin Burns, 30, with a time of 5:18:54 and Emilee Guzman, City employees take active shooter training Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently announced that during the week of April 18 all City Hall employees received active shooter training led by Everett Police Officer Stephen Ramunno. Throughout the training, the importance of being aware of not only your surroundings but also of the people around you was emphasized. ALICE, the safety program in discussion, stands for Alert, Lockdown, Inform, Counter and Evacuate. These aspects are critical for survival during an active shooter emergency. This is an important training that any public building should undergo in order to keep not only employees, but also guests and vendors who visit Everett City Hall safe. This is just the first step in the City of Everett’s safety plan. As a result of the training, the City will be taking additional steps to protect its employees and those visiting City Hall. 22, with a time of 5:31:43. WE CAN HELP PAY YOUR HEATING BILLS!

It is spring, a time for new beginnings. How did we start the year? What were our goals? Which goals have we achieved? What goals are we still working on? Have we lost focus on, revised, or simply abandoned, any goals? With fi tness, and generally in life, the most important goals and priorities are often the most diffi cult. Since January, I have made progress towards, and lost some ground from, my own fitness goals. (The birth of my second son and a recent illness in the family were distractions that, rightly, took priority over my own fi tness goals.) The setbacks are simply more reason to keep moving, and working, towards my goals. I want to be healthier to set a good example for my sons, and so I can be there for them in the future. (Selfi sh or not, one of the best reasons to be healthier is that it means more time to enjoy life with the people we care about.)

He remained involved with the organization for many decades and helped nurture the growth and evolution of Triangle programs. Dr. Philip B. Conti is the Clinical Director & General Dentist at Maplewood Dental Associates in Malden, MA. He was born in Everett, Massachusetts, and raised in Malden, Massachusetts. He is a graduate of Malden High School and attended Brandeis University. He graduated with a bachelor’s in biology and simultaneously attended the New England Conservatory of Music (special voice student) and Tufts University School of Dental Medicine, achieving his Doctor of Dental Medicine degree. Dr. Conti worked at the Cancer Research Department at Tufts Medical Center from 1958 to 1962 as a biologist, screening steroids on a National Institute of Health Grant and co-authored many research publications. This year’s event will return to JFK Library and Museum for Triangle’s first in-person awards ceremony and fundraiser since 2019. On this landmark year in the organization’s history, Triangle Inc. is thrilled to celebrate the accomplishments of the thousands of Triangle participants who have been a part of its community since the 1970s, while also looking forward to highlighting exciting new programs that will allow the organization to grow, evolve, and thrive in the decades to come. In its 50 years, Triangle has since grown into one of the leading disability services agencies in the Commonwealth with multiple locations in Malden, a recently expanded site in Salem, a downtown location in Randolph, and a Boston office that is home to the service-learning and abuse prevention programs. Each year, Triangle reaches 4,000 people with disabilities from more than 100 cities and towns and continues to improve and diversify programs and services to better meet the evolving needs of the disability community.

Commonly known as loan-sharking, usury is defined as “loaning money to individuals at an interest rate that is above a maximum legal rate.” According to Attorney GenK eral Maura Healey’s Office, Le used cash and casino chips to provide loans to patrons. However, the loans either carried a daily interest rate of five percent or a weekly interest rate of 10 percent. Massachusetts usury laws prohibit annual loan interest rates from exceeding 20 percent. Le was taken into police custody on April 10 at Encore and was charged with four counts of usury. During her arraignment the following day, Le pleaded not guilty and was released on her own perEverett Kiwanis Club supports MOA sonal recognizance.

The clinic is a collaboration with the Malden YMCA and the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and is free to everyone five and older. No ID or proof of health insurance is required. The event at Rivergreen Park is one of several free, family-friendly clinics the DPH is cohosting with community organizations across the Commonwealth during April School Vacation Week, April 18-24. By hosting the clinics at places like trampoline parks, zoos, bowling alleys and even Six Flags amusement park, the focus is on meeting people where they are and encouraging a family-friendly atmosphere in which to get vaccinated. A list of these special clinics can be found online at www.mass.gov/KidsClinic. “We are excited to continue our partnership with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health and begin a new partnership with the Malden YMCA in continuing to promote vaccine equity in Everett,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “By taking a different approach, we have an additional opportunity to get children and their families vaccinated against COVID-19.” “We thank our many businesses and local partners for joining us in making vaccination available at these family-friendly locations,” said DPH Commissioner Margret Cooke. “These events are a convenient way for the whole family to get up to date on their COVID-19 vaccination – and have some fun at the same time.” The clinics are part of DPH’s Vaccine Equity Initiative to increase awareness and access to the COVID-19 vaccine and mitigate the impacts of the pandemic. Many local partners are working with the Vaccine Equity Initiative to help share information about the COVID-19 vaccine and increase access to vaccinations. To date, more than 5.3 million people in Massachusetts are now fully vaccinated. COVID-19 vaccines and boosters have been rigorously tested and proven to be safe and effective by the U.S. Food and Drug Administration, providing protection from the virus and preventing serious illness.

The day ended with an intimate discussion between Pressley and the students and advisors of the Youth Disability Empowerment Club. Themes included community, advocacy, transformation and joy. In between, Pressley spent considerable time inside the EHS Gymnasium, where Sarai’s charity event was in full swing. In addition to haircutting stations where people could donate their hair, the festivities included arts and crafts, a manicurist, a therapy dog, yoga, a photo booth, and food from vendors and desserts made by the EHS Culinary Arts Department. The Congresswoman interacted with dozens of students, teachers, and staff, and was gracious in taking photographs and selfies. “It was a great day at EHS,” said Tahiliani. “Thanks to Sarai for coming up with this thoughtful way of supporting students, and to the EHS and district leaders who helped plan and set up the activities. I hope and trust that Congresswoman Pressley had as much fun being at Everett High as we had hosting her.”

I encourage everyone to dispose of unneeded prescription medications now.” risen by 16 percent in the last year, claiming more than 290 lives every day. According to a report published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, most people who misused a prescription medication obtained the medicine from a family member or friend. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that in the United States more than 106,000 people died as the result of a drug overdose in the 12-month period ending November 2021, marking the most drug-related deaths ever recorded, with opioid-related deaths accounting for 75 percent of all overdose deaths. For more than a decade, DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day has helped Americans easily rid their homes of unneeded medications – those that are old, unwanted or no longer needed – that too often become a gateway to addiction. Working in close partnership with local law enforcement, Take Back Day has removed more than 15 million pounds of medication from circulation since its inception. These efforts are directly in line with DEA’s priority to combat the overdose epidemic in the United States. On April 30, DEA and its law enforcement partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs. Liquids (including intravenous solutions), syringes and other sharps, and illicit drugs will not be accepted. DEA will accept vaping devices and cartridges provided lithium batteries are removed. A location finder and partner toolbox are available at www.DEATakeBack.com for easy reference to April 30 collection sites. Year-round receptacles are available at more than 13,000 pharmacies, hospitals, police departments and business. Additionally, with the passage of the Dispose Unused Medications and Prescription (DUMP) Opioids Act in 2021, the public may now use drop boxes at Veterans Administration medical centers to dispose of controlled substance prescription medications. Check with your local VA health facility for more information. With more than 13,000 year-round drop-off locations in the United States, every day can be Take Back Day.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 22, 2022 Page 13 Advocacy groups urge passage of Baker’s tax cut plan D uring a recent event marking Tax Day at the State House, several organizations urged passage of the Baker-Polito Administration’s comprehensive tax relief plan. The Administration’s proposal would provide $700 million in tax relief for low-income residents, working families, renters and seniors and would make Massachusetts more competitive. With costs for families rising across the board and the Commonwealth continuing to exceed tax revenue projections, the group urged that it is time to give taxpayers a break and pass the Administration’s proposal. “With residents and families continuing to face rising costs, Massachusetts should take action and pass tax cuts that will reduce costs and give taxpayers a break,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Revenues continue to exceed expectations, so it’s time to give some of this surplus revenue back to taxpayers. We look forward to working with our partners in the Legislature to put more money into the pockets of our hard-working families and residents.” “Inflation and rising prices are impacting everyone in Massachusetts, but especially low-income residents and working families,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “That’s why this tax plan is so important: it targets tax relief to the populations and communities who have been hardest-hit by both the pandemic and the ongoing pressures of inflation and rising prices.” “The Commonwealth is in a historically strong fiscal position and has ample resources to continue investing in critical areas of need – like childcare, education, housing, and more – while also implementing these tax relief measures,” said Secretary of Administration and Finance Michael Heffernan. “The proposed tax plan will benefit hundreds of thousands of hardworking taxpayers and improve our competitiveness as a state to help ensure the continued strength of our economy in the long-term.” The Commonwealth continues to face a strong fiscal picture and ended last fiscal year with a $5 billion surplus. Tax revenues in the first months of calendar year 2022 continue to exceed projections. Revenues beat projections by $856 million in January, by $293 million in February and by $427 million in March. “MTF’s mission is about fiscal stability for the Commonwealth and positioning Massachusetts for long-term economic growth and opportunity for all,” said Eileen McAnneny, President of the Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation. “The Baker Administration’s tax package achieves both and that is why it has MTF’s full support. Not only is it affordable, but it provides relief to our residents while signaling that Massachusetts is choosing to compete for the people and talent that are so critical to our future economic vitality.” “On behalf of 11,000 CPAs and accounting professionals across Massachusetts, I want to commend Governor Baker and the Administration for filing this comprehensive and timely tax relief package,” said MassCPAs President and CEO Amy Pitter. “We’re specifically grateful for the inclusion of a provision to update the conformity date for individual income tax purposes from 2005 to 2022. Massachusetts conforms to the 2005 IRC, but most states conform to the 2021 IRC, which makes us more outdated than any other state by a landslide. There is no economic or tax policy reason for Massachusetts not to update its conformity date. This low cost and necessary update will provide consistency and simplicity for Massachusetts taxpayers and streamline tax administration at the Department of Revenue and we look forward to working with the governor, his team and the legislature on this critical change, which we’re thankful was also included in the House Ways and Means budget proposal.” “Small businesses and working families are being severely hit with the regressive effect of inflation, yet tax revenues have never been better,” said Jon Hurst of the Retailers Association of Massachusetts.“The governor’s tax reforms recognize that taxpayers and consumers of all stages of life need fair treatment from the government; and as a complete package, it will make it more affordable and competitive to stay in Massachusetts.” “State revenue collections have far exceeded expectations for the second year in a row,” said John Regan, president and CEO of Associated Industries of Massachusetts. “The Commonwealth should return a portion of that windfall to assist taxpayers burdened by inflation and to stimulate the economy. Governor Baker’s plan spreads the relief throughout the economy and is an equitable tax proposal.” “These targeted tax proposals will help create a more comTAX CUT | SEE PAGE 14 Everett, MA May 14, 2022 9 a.m. — 2 p.m. Ligue hoje para um compromisso.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRiDAy, ApRil 22, 2022 Baker announces Annual Park Serve Day T he Baker-Polito Administration recently announced that the 16th annual Park Serve Day will be held on Saturday, April 23 with dozens of volunteer activities planned throughout the Commonwealth’s state park system in collaboration with partner organizations and community stakeholders. Since Park Serve Day began in 2006, thousands have participated in a day of volunteerism by partnering with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (DCR) by cleaning coastlines, clearing trails, picking up litter, planting flowers, painting, and contributing to other important tasks at state parks in every region of the Commonwealth. “Volunteering on Park Serve Day is one of the best ways to ensure a park or beach you love will be in good shape for the spring and summer seasons,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Our Administration is grateful to the thousands of volunteers who will get outside with family, friends, and neighbors to improve state properties throughout the Commonwealth on April 23rd.” “It is heartwarming to see how many people are willing to commit to a day of volunteerism on Park Serve Day as a way to give back and safeguard our state parks system,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “Thank you to all of the volunteers for their dedication and hard work in preparing the state park system.” Local events generally take place between the hours of 9 a.m. and 1 p.m., though times may vary by location. Participants are encouraged to reach out to their local state parks to confirm event times and meeting places. Work gloves and equipment necessary to complete various projects will be provided by the DCR; however, if participants choose, they can bring their own gloves or hand tools (personal materials should be clearly marked with the owner’s name and phone number on them). Notably, power tools will not be allowed. “Park Serve Day has become a tradition for many of the volunteers who assist DCR annually to prepare state parks ahead of the influx of people each summer,” said Energy and Environmental Affairs Secretary Kathleen Theoharides. “The Massachusetts state parks system provides many of us with a respite from our daily stresses, and Park Serve Day offers everyone a chance to get outside and give back a little.” The DCR encourages participants to bring their own water and/or food, and advise volunteers to wear sturdy shoes and work clothes. It is also recommended that volunteers bring sunscreen and insect repellent. Weather can be unpredictable, so please dress accordingly. Please note that all parking fees will be waived for volunteers at locations where Park Serve Day events are taking place. “As we get ready to welcome millions of visitors to our State Park System for the 2022 summer season, Park Serve Day is a great way for everyone in the Commonwealth to make a difference at the state park they most enjoy,” said Acting DCR Commissioner Stephanie Cooper. “The contributions made by this year’s volunteers will ensure a positive experience for so many in the months ahead, and we are immensely grateful for their time and effort.” To find a Park Serve Day event near you, please review the list below or search the Park Serve Day webpage at https://www.mass.gov/service-details/dcr-park-servemake-every-day-earth-day.

When can I expect my fi rst check, and is direct deposit my only option for receiving my monthly payment? Almost 62 Dear Almost, Generally, Social Security retirement benefi ts, as well as disability and survivor benefi ts, are paid in the month after the month they are due. So, if you want to start receiving your Social Security benefi ts in July, your July benefi ts will be distributed in August. The day of the month you receive your benefi t payment, however, will depend on your TAX CUT | FROM PAGE 14 cap from $3,000 to $5,000, allowing approximately 881,000 Massachusetts renters to keep approximately $77 million more annually Double the dependent care credit to $480 for one qualifying individual and $960 for two or more, and double the household dependent care credit to $360 for one qualifying individual and $720 for two or more to benefi t more than 700,000 families Increase the Massachusetts adjusted gross income thresholds for “no tax status” to $12,400 for single fi lers, $24,800 for joint fi lers, and $18,650 for head of households, which will eliminate the income tax for more than 234,000 low-income fi lers Double the estate tax threshold and eliminate the current “cliff eff ect” that taxes the full amount below the threshold Change the short-term capital gains tax rate to the personal income tax rate of fi ve percent to align the Commonwealth with most other states The plan would have an outsized impact on the communities hardest hit by the COVID-19 pandemic. For example, the rental deduction increase would provide $34 million in annual tax relief to renters in the 20 “equity communities” that the Department of Public Health identifi ed as having been hardest-hit by the pandemic (based on factors like social determinants of health and the disproportionate racial impact of the pandemic). The “no tax status” change to eliminate the income tax for more low-income people would result in nearly $12 million in annual savings in those same communities. through the 20th birthdate. Here’s the schedule of when you can expect to receive your monthly check. If you were born on the: 1st through the 10th : Expect your check to be deposited on the second Wednesday of each month. 11th : Expect your check to be deposited on the third Wednesday of each month. 21st through the 31st : Expect your check to be deposited on the fourth Wednesday of each month. There are, however, a few exceptions to this schedule. For example, if the day your Social Security check is supposed to be deposited happens to be nior ior a holiday, your check will be deposited the previous day. And, if you are receiving both Social Security benefi ts and SSI payments, your Social Security check will be deposited on the third day of the month. You should also know that for Social Security benefi ciaries who started receiving benefi ts before 1997, their Social Security checks are paid on the third day of the month. To get a complete schedule of 2022 payment dates, visit SSA.gov/pubs/EN-05-100312022.pdf. Receiving Options There are two ways you can receive your Social Security benefi ts. Most benefi ciaries choose direct deposit into their bank or credit union account because it’s simple, safe and secure. But if you don’t want this option, or you don’t have a bank account that your payments can be deposited into, you can get a Direct Express Debit MasterCard and have your benefi ts deposited into your card’s account.

Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), Senate chair of the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee. “No one’s around to give out ‘A’s’ for effort. What matters are results. [The bill] pushes back against global warming on multiple fronts, and with an emphasis on innovation and smart experimentation. It’s about thinking long-range but executing now, in the short term. It’s about problem-solving, confidence and even optimism.” “Clean energy policy must be as realistic as it is bold,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “After over 12 hours of debate, the Massachusetts State Senate voted on a bill that was bold, but not realistic. Although well-intended, the final bill neglected undeniable realities for our economy, workforce and supply chain. My colleagues that voted no and I proposed a plan that would have boldly invested in a green future without putting too much strain on taxpayers, but this was rejected. That is why I voted against the final version of the bill.” “The [bill] will help Massachusetts reach net-zero emissions by 2050 by paving the road to clean transportation, clean buildings and clean electric and thermal energy,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), chair of the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change. “It is an impressive achievement, one that should give every resident of the commonwealth hope about our ability to mitigate climate change.” “The bill as written significantly increases demand for electricity, without corresponding cost controls, increases in supply and transmission capacity, or support for conservation measures,” said Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “These factors could well combine to cause economic harm and hardship, unsustainability and failure to meet the significant carbon reduction requirements of the Global Warming Solutions Act and its successors and related regulations.” “Combating climate change requires an honest assessment of the challenges before us, and constant work to change the course we are on,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “I’m proud to say that the Senate has never shied away from either and that we continue to lead on taking action to combat climate change.” “Many states are trying to provide tax relief for consumers and small businesses due to the high cost of inflation and states having extra money from over taxation,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. The Massachusetts State Senate is taking another approach by passing a multifaceted climate bill which aims to restrict energy supplies and options for consumers while mandating costly alternatives. The Senate Democrats passed a climate bill which will eliminate popular and reliable gas- and -diesel powered vehicles, joining the likes of California. This ban will become a significant problem for Massachusetts motorists when their options are arbitrarily taken away from them due to this bill.” The House has already approved a different version of the proposal and the Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. The bills will likely end up in a conference committee to hammer out a compromise version. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE (S 2819) Senate 11-28, rejected an amendment that would convene a Building Justice With Jobs Task Force to establish the Building Justice With Jobs Plan – a statewide strategy to retrofit and electrify 1 million residential homes over the next ten years and to implement a comprehensive strategy that extends targeted financial resources for homes located in environmental justice BEACON | SEE PAGE 21

Another key provision transfers $1 billion in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) resources to the Mass Clean Energy Center, a state agency dedicated to increase and accelerate the growth of the state’s clean energy sector, create jobs, deliver statewide environmental benefi ts and secure long-term economic growth. Earmarked funds include $350 million to carry out the Building Justice With Jobs Plan; $250 million to establish a clean energy investment institution or mechanism including a green bank; and $150 million for clean energy infrastructure. “I am disappointed that our chamber passed up an incredible opportunity to invest in our collective future and our statewide economy,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton). “According to the 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap, we need to retrofi t and electrify 1 million homes over the next decade to comply with our updated emission reduction laws. By deploying $1 billion of our one-time federal ARPA resources - which revert if unused - this powerful statewide plan would have helped ensure equity, create thousands of new clean energy jobs and ultimately achieve the progress we need to decarbonize our commonwealth. It is imperative that the Legislature invest these federal ARPA funds, which come at no cost to the state, otherwise, the cost of inaction will simply be unaff ordable.” Amendment opponents said the amendment results in the Legislature giving too much power and authority to an unelected task force in place of the Legislature. They noted the amendment sets a bad precedent and might even be unconstitutional. Despite repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call, several senators did not respond to a request to comment on why they voted against the amendment including two key players in the drafting of the bill: Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), Senate chair of the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee and Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), the chair of the Senate Way and Means Committee.

Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton). “Fossil fuel investments are extremely volatile and in direct confl ict with our continued progress toward a clean energy future.

Amendment supporters, noting that 55 percent of Bay State residents are serviced by the state’s 15 RTAs, said these RTAs need this assistance in order to make progress and reach the goal of all zero-emission buses. “I proposed this amendment to support RTAs in electrifying their bus fl eets to ensure a sustainable and continued critical service to some of our most vulnerable groups including riders who are low-income, paratransit, older adults and essential workers,” said amendment sponsor Sen.

The land must be replaced with land of comparable acreage, location, fair market value and natural resource value. “I am pleased that the Senate has passed this legislation ensuring that all Massachusetts residents have access to public land and a healthy environment,” said Senate sponsor Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). “Protecting public land is vitally important, and any loss has a direct impact on those who rely on open space lands.

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..
