Wynn stepped down as CEO in 2018, after an investigation done by The Wall Street Journal reported multiple sexual misconduct accusations against him, cited by several different sources. He has since denied all allegations against him. The Massachusetts Gaming Commission charged Wynn Resorts with a $35 million fine for the violations, as well as Wynn’s current CEO, Matthew Maddox, with a $500,000 personal fine for neglecting to require an investigation into a complaint presented by one of his employees. In addition to the fine, Maddox will undergo mandatory training by an executive coach, who will be hired by Wynn’s board of directors. This will consist of training in sexual assault, sexual misconduct, human trafficking and more. During an open meeting on Wednesday, Massachusetts Gaming Commissioner Gayle Cameron explained how the commission went about this process. “We got to this decision, that in our opinion, the evidence and the statute that we have to go by demanded it,” she said.

Massachusetts Gaming Commission Chair Cathy Judd-Stein said the public should not be worried that these issues will arise again, due to agreements the commission made with Wynn Resorts. “We have imposed fines and even imposed significant conditions, and one of them will be to have an independent monitor to go in that will report back to us,” she said. “The company has proposed to us practices, that we’re quite confident in, that would mitigate their past transgressions and reCommissioner Enrique Zuniga addresses EncoreBoston officials as members of the Mass.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 3 Third annual Solidarity for All 5K slated for May 18 By Christopher Roberson A s the warmer weather returns to Everett, more than 100 runners are expected to step up to the starting line for the third annual Solidarity for All 5K on May 18. “The race was inspired by an amazing group of kids from Central America, Brazil, Haiti and Bangladesh,” said race organizer Shane McNally. “We wanted to celebrate them and the diversity of our city in a big way; a run is the perfect community event. We also aimed to raise money to positively impact people in our community.” He said that for the second year, race proceeds will be donated to the Strongbacks Long Distance Riding Club, a nonprofit organization operated by Everett resident John Whelan. “The Strongbacks organization was chosen because of their trade school scholarship program,” said McNally. “With the proceeds, a scholarship will be given to an Everett resident for the purposes of attending trade school.” McNally described the course fi nish line at Glendale Park. McNally said Anthony Almeida won the men’s race last year with a time of 19 minutes, six seconds while Sarah Alyson won the women’s race in 2017 and 2018. McNally also said new prizes have been added for both the faster and slower runners. Looking back, he said that one year a four-year-old boy and a fi ve-year-old girl received medals for being the top fi nishers in their age group. He also spoke about a participant who used the race as a “springboard” to eventually compete in a full marathon. Lastly, McNally recalled three women from El Salvador who were top fi nishers in their age group. “We really enjoy seeing people engage in friendly competition for a great cause,” he said. McNally wanted to thank David LaRovere of Messinger Insurance, Exelon Generation and the Everett Police Department as well as Everett resident Stephanie Martins and Ward 5 School Committee Member Marcony Almeida Barros for their continued support. 8 Norwood St. Everett (617) 387-9810 www.eight10barandgrille.com Kitchen Hours: Mon-Thurs: 12-10pm Fri-Sat: 12-11pm Sunday: 1pm-10pm A map of the Solidarity for All 5K, which begins at the Everett Recreation Center and ends at Glendale Park.

From there, McNally said, participants pick up speed as they run downhill toward the DiDomenico’s Bill to Lift the “Cap on Kids” becomes law B OSTON – Last week the Massachusetts Legislature took the fi nal steps needed to end the state’s family cap policy by overwhelmingly voting to reject a Governor veto and enact State Senator Sal DiDomenico’s legislation to lift the Cap on Kids. The Cap on Kids – also called the family cap – denies benefi ts to children conceived while, or soon after, a family began receiving benefi ts. As a result of the Cap on Kids, Massachusetts does not provide benefi ts for nearly 9,000 children living in poverty. Their parents struggle to provide even the most basic essentials for their children, causing everyone in the family to suff er. “Lifting the ‘Cap on Kids’ is simply the right thing to do to ensure that families are not denied basic benefi ts simply because of when their children were born,” said DiDomenico. “I have heard many personal accounts from families who have been hurt by this cap on kids – parents who struggle to meet their families’ basic needs because of this policy. Today, I am proud to say that we have put an end to this ineff ective and unjust policy and show that we value all children equally, regardless of the circumstances of their birth.” This was the sixth time the Massachusetts Senate took bipartisan action to pass DiDomenico’s policy proposal. This session, legislation to lift the Cap on Kids was a top priority for the Massachusetts Senate, with the Senate passing DiDomenico’s bill in March and also including the family cap repeal in its FY19 supplemental budget. In his remarks on the Senate fl oor, DiDomenico thanked his colleagues for their support and expressed his gratitude to Senate President Karen Spilka for her ongoing commitment to repeal the Cap on Kids: “This is a critical policy change that will help thousands of children across the Commonwealth, and I would like to especially thank Senate President Spilka for continuing to make this a Senate priority and addressing this issue at the very beginning of our session.” Massachusetts’s ‘Cap on Kids’ policy was established in 1995 and has been detrimental to families across the state. Since fi ling this legislation, DiDomenico has passionately disputed certain erroneous assumptions about our Commonwealth’s low-income families: “The facts are crystal clear – this policy hurts our children which is why so many states have already taken action to repeal their family cap policies. For over two decades, the Cap on Kids has done nothing but move us backward and make it harder for low-income families to meet their baLunch Menu!

The repeal of the family cap is also retroactive to Jan. 1, 2019. Children who are, or would be, excluded from grant calculations will now be included. The fi scal year 2019 budget already provides funding for this change, which was included in the House and Senate’s Conference Committee report. Grilled Rib Eye Steak!

This Executive Order is now part of the city’s standard contract language. The purpose of this Executive Order is as follows: • Raise awareness about human traffi cking and what corporate citizens can do to assist in the fi ght against human traffi cking. • Encourage contractors to follow employee recruitment and labor practices that do not violate human traffi cking laws. • Urge contractors to engage subcontractors with employee recruitment and labor practices that do not violate human traffi cking laws. • Educate the public that human traffi cking is a violation of state and federal law. • Affi rm that the City of Everett will not conduct business with entities that have knowledge of or further human traffi cking. • Declare the City of Everett will use its best eff orts to conduct business with enterprises that take steps to safeguard against human traffi cking. In its role as a market participant, the City of Everett seeks to assure the integrity of the procurement process is not undermined by substandard labor practices or purchase of services provided or goods made under exploitative or unsustainable conditions.

The good news is that they are only five games into the schedule, and once the weather breaks they should be able to settle into a groove to put together a streak to, hopefully, secure a trip to the postseason. After losing to Lynn English, 20-8, the Crimson Tide bounced back nicely to beat host Somerville, 5-3.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 13 After thumping Malden, Tide softball team drops heartbreaker to undefeated Medford By Joe Mitchell T he Everett High School softball team (5-2 overall, 4-1 in the Northeastern Conference) was all over Malden Monday afternoon, April 29, to the tune of 15-2 in a mercy rule game that was called after five innings. Pitcher Ariana Garay went all five innings, giving up three walks, two hits and two earned runs while striking out three. The Crimson Tide broke open the game in the third by scoring 13 runs on just four hits, erasing Malden’s 1-0 lead with a decisive attack. The Golden Tornadoes notched the run in the first, and then they tacked on their final tally in the fourth. The third inning highlights included a single by Haley Oteri followed by another single off the bat of Veronica Bento. They both scooted home on a double by Maddy Duraes. “The defense did a great job in this game backing up Ariana,” said Everett coach Stacy Poste-Schiavo. “When runners got on, we made the plays to get the lead runners first, which helped stop many more potential runs from coming in.” The schedule got a little bit tougher Wednesday afternoon, when they traveled to Medford to take on the undefeated Mustangs. But the Tide girls gave their Medford counterparts all that they could handle, only to lose by a 2-1 count. Celeste Fuccillo went all seven innings for Everett in the circle, allowing two earned runs on nine hits and one walk. She whiffed two. The Tide had runners on base in each of the first three innings, plus the fifth, before finally scoring the first run of the game in the sixth. The Mustangs, too, stranded runners in four of the first five innings, but it was in the magical sixth that they broke through. They then scored the winning run in the seventh. Bento reached on an error to begin the Everett sixth. Duraes then singled, setting the stage for Garay to deliver the run with a solid hit to the outfield. Medford quickly tied it up in the home half with a home run, and could have scored more with runners in scoring position, but the Everett defense was equal to the task. The Mustangs were then able to avoid extra innings by scoring the game-winning run in the seventh. “This was such a great game by both teams,” said Poste. “It was a battle back and forth. Celeste and Kaylee did an amazing job as a battery, and the defense backed her up in every inning. “We had an error-less game. Medford did get hits, but we made the plays to hold them from scoring, except in the last inning. We told the girls we were proud of how they played, and they never gave up. Unfortunately, we hit the ball right to their defense, and they also made some great catches to stop us from getting on or scoring.” Everett has another game this week: against Peabody on May 2 (after press deadline). They will then be taking on host Beverly on Monday, May 6. Revere comes to town Wednesday, before the Tide faces host Lynn Classical on Saturday, May 11, starting at 3 p.m.

However, the school’s alumni and scores of donors have answered the call.

DiMaiti said International Residence Management (IRM), which had been the funding arm for the school’s 43 international students, “failed to meet the obligations of its agreement.” By doing so, IRM put the school’s future in jeopardy by triggering a $1 million shortage. “That impacts us tremendously,” said DiMaiti. “We Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone spoke during the alumni rally on April 29. are in an emergency.” He said IRM declared bankruptcy in October 2018 and sub5 Athletic Director Paul Sobolewski spoke during the alumni rally on April 29. sequently ceased operations.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – Friday, May 3, 2019 Page 19 Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of April 22-26. All House roll calls are on proposed amendments to the $42.7 billion fiscal 2020 state budget that the House considered for four days last week. A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE BUDGET “DEBATE” Most of the decisions on which of the amendments are included and not included in the budget are made behind closed doors. Of the 1,369 budget amendments proposed, most of them are bundled into consolidated amendments. This year there were nine consolidated amendments and all but two were approved unanimously and without real debate. Those two each received only one vote against them. The system works as follows: Individual representatives file amendments on various topics. All members are then invited to “subject meetings” in Room 348 where they pitch their amendments to Democratic leaders who draft consolidated amendments that include some of the individual representatives’ amendments while excluding others. The categories of consolidated amendments include education and local aid; veterans and social services; and housing and mental health. Supporters of the system say that any representative who sponsored an excluded amendment can bring it to the floor and ask for an up or down vote on the amendment itself. They say this system has worked well for many years. Opponents say that rarely, if ever, does a member bring his or her amendment to the floor for an upor-down vote because that is not the way the game is played. It is an “expected tradition” that you accept the fate of your amendment as determined by Democratic leaders. Opponents also say this archaic inside system takes power away from individual members and forces legislators to vote for or against a package of amendments. They argued that individual amendments should be considered on a one-by-one basis on the House floor. $42.7 BILLION FISCAL 2020 BUDGET House 155-1, approved the House version of a $42.7 billion fiscal 2020 state budget and sent it to the Senate. During four days of budget deliberations the House added close to $72 million in spending. Supporters said the budget is a fiscally responsible one that makes vital investments in the state while continuing fiscal responsibility and not raising taxes. Chief budget writer and Ways and Means Chair Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston) said that the budget was crafted out of members’ shared priorities and funds many important programs including housing, substance abuse and the environment. He noted that this is a budget of which all members can be proud. “The state budget is a reflection of our values and the lack of a black or Latino member in leadership was apparent in the House budget,” said Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston), the lone vote against the budget. “Former Rep. Byron Rushing would not have stood for the New England Center for Arts & Technology and Teen Empowerment not being funded and neither will I.” Holmes said the House missed the experience of former House Ways and Means chair Brian Dempsey who would have resisted and not have given in to [Speaker] DeLeo’s urges for “retaliation against” him by not fully funding Sportsman’s Tennis Club, No Books No Ball and the Lena Park Community Center. Holmes charged that Speaker DeLeo and Ways and Means chair Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston) crossed a line, and in doing so, hurt his constituents. “The speaker and Aaron padded their districts with earmarks for Winthrop and the North End on the backs of removing funds that provide services for poor African-Americans and Hispanics,” continued Holmes. “It is a racket and the racketeering is to support lobbyists, unions, fundraisers/donors and former legislators. Helping people has become a simply a byproduct of what occurs in the building.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes LEGISLATORS’ SALARIES (H 3800) House 5-152, rejected an amendment that would eliminate the current system under which some 100 of the 160 representatives are paid stipends in addition to their base $66,256 base salary. These current stipends range from $15,000 to $80,000 for their service in Democratic or Republican leadership positions, as committee chairs or vice chairs and as the ranking Republican on some committees. The amendment would reduce the stipend for the Senate president and speaker from $80,000 to $50,000; Senate and House Ways and Means Chairs from $65,000 to $35,000; Senate and House Majority Leaders from $60,000 to $30,000; and House speaker Pro Tempore and Senate Pro Tempore from $50,000 to $25,000. All other 152 members of the House would receive a stipend of $15,000. The amendment also reduces the current annual general expense allowance for each legislator from $15,000 to $12,500 for members whose districts are within a 50-mile radius of the Statehouse and from $20,000 to $17,500 for districts located outside of that radius. This allowance is used at the discretion of individual legislators to support a variety of costs including the renting of a district office, contributions to local civic groups and the printing and mailing of newsletters. Legislators are issued a 1099 from the state and are required to report the allowance as income but are not required to submit an accounting of how they spend it. Amendment supporters noted the proposal is based on the pay structure for the U.S. Congress where only a few positions have higher salaries and is designed to eliminate the pay inequity for representatives. “Every two years, representatives arrive as a group of peers to the Statehouse that are elected from across the commonwealth,” said the amendment’s sponsor Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston). “We arrive as equals. That equality, under the current system, evaporates quickly upon the election of the speaker. Unfortunately, the speaker uses the authority of the naming of committee assignments and selecting a leadership team to manipulate the members for his causes and to work against one another. The amendment’s goal is to level the playing field and begin to end that manipulation.” Opponents said the speaker and representatives in the leadership and committee chairs have a much heavier workload and deserve a higher salary. They noted that the current pay structure is based on a 2014 report of a bipartisan special commission set up to review the compensation of the state government and its bodies. The salary was determined to be inadequate to attract people to this job. They noted some additional increases in the bonus pay were given by the Legislature in January 2017 when it overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of the hikes. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle No EDUCATION AND LOCAL AID (H 3800) House 158-0, approved a consolidated amendment to fund education and local aid. Education Committee chair Rep. Alice Peisch (D-Wellesley) said the consolidated amendment contains increases over last year for many important items including $15.4 million for the Children’s Trust Fund; $2 million for Early College; $11.8 million for regional libraries; $3.1 million for Recovery High Schools; and $1 million for a new civic education grant program. “The amendment adds to a Ways and Means budget that demonstrated a strong commitment to all sectors of public, birth through [Grade] 12 education throughout the commonwealth,” said Peisch. “The budget overall includes significant increases to Chapter 70, charter school reimbursement and early education, with an explicit commitment to low income students via the Chapter 70 reserve account … It also includes additional funds for libraries, the early college program and civics education programs.” Peisch said the entire budget reflects the leadership’s ongoing dedication to educational improvement for all students to close the achievement and opportunity gaps. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes SOCIAL SERVICES AND VETS (H 3800) House 160-0, approved a consolidated amendment on veterans and social services. Veterans Committee chair Linda Campbell (D-Methuen) said the consolidated amendment contains increases over last year for many important programs. She pointed out funding for some key items including $100,000 to help the Vietnam Veterans of America in Massachusetts with the processing of VA claims; $85,000 to the NEADS program that trains service dogs to assist veterans; $124,000 for funding for additional housing for women veterans; and $550,000 to the Massachusetts General Hospital Home Base program to provide clinical care, education and training to address veterans’ physical and behavioral health issues to include PTSD, traumatic brain injury, substance use disorder and suicide prevention. “In the consolidated amendment, the House provides additional funding for veterans programs in the commonwealth over and above last year’s budget and the governor’s budget,” said Campbell. “I am proud that my colleagues in the House have once again demonstrated their support for critical programs and organizations that are providing the care that our veterans and their families deserve. Veterans can face a number of hardships as a result of their service, from PTSD to homelessness to substance abuse, and this increased investment will ensure our veterans can receive needed services within their own communities.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes HOUSING AND MENTAL HEALTH (H 3800) House 160-0, approved a consolidated amendment on housing and mental health. Rep. Kevin Honan (D-Boston) the chair of the Committee on Housing said the consolidated amendment includes a $400,000 increase in funding for the Alternative Housing Voucher Program; a $250,000 increase in funding for Housing Consumer Education Centers; $300,000 for the Home Works Program; $50,000 for a computer technology center for Commonwealth Housing; funding for individual communities across the state including $65,000 for a shelter in Haverhill and $50,000 for mobility access enhancements and renovations in Brockton. “I am a strong supporter of the Housing Budget released by House Ways and Means for fiscal 2020,” said Honan. “It increases critical funding for programs such as the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program, Rental Assistance for Families in Transition and funding for public housing. The budget was strengthened even further through an additional $1.735 million in funding through consolidated earmarks for local housing programs—including my amendment for a $250,000 increase in funding for Housing Consumer Education Centers.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes CAP ON WELFARE BENEFITS FOR KIDS (S 2186) Senate 37-3, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of a bill that repeals the current law that denies an additional $100 in welfare benefits to children conceived while—or soon after—the family began receiving welfare benefits or, if they had received family welfare benefits in the past. The law was adopted in 1995 as part of a welfare reform package that was aimed at discouraging families already receiving public support from having more children. The House overrode the veto on April 10 and with the Senate override, the bill now becomes law. Supporters of the repeal said that there are some 8,700 children who currently fall under the cap in the Bay State. These families are barred from receiving an additional $100 a month to help support that child. They said there are no facts to back up the charge that families are having more children in order to get the additional $100. “Eliminating the family cap should be accompanied by other reforms to the [welfare] program designed to align the eligibility determination with federal standards and support recipients as they return to work,” said Baker in his veto message. The governor added that under his proposal, “homeless families would no longer see a benefit reduction for accessing temporary shelter.” “We are thrilled that our commonwealth has repealed the cruel and unjust family cap,” said Jacquelynne Bowman, Executive Director of Greater Boston Legal Services. “This is an important step in helping Massachusetts act on the promise of supporting very low-income families to meet their children’s basic needs.” “Lifting the Cap on Kids will make a critical difference in the lives of 8,700 of the lowest income children in Massachusetts,” said Deborah Harris of the Massachusetts Law Reform Institute. “With today’s Mon. April 22 House 10:03 a.m. to 8:52 p.m. Tues. April 23 House 10:01 a.m. to 8:06 p.m. Wed. April 24 House 10:03 a.m. to 9:39 p.m. Thurs. April 25 House 11:04 a.m. to 8:36 p.m. Fri. April 26 No House session vote, Massachusetts has affirmed the dignity and humanity of every child.” (A “Yes” vote is for repealing the cap. A “No” vote is against repealing it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes GENDER X (S 2203) Senate 39-1, approved a bill that would allow for residents to choose a third gender option, “X” in lieu of “male” or “female” on an application for a driver’s license, learner’s permit, identification card or liquor purchase identification card. No documentation would be required for the person to choose the “X” option. The House has already approved a different version of the bill and the House and Senate will work on a compromise version. “Massachusetts has always led on equity and justice, especially in our proud bi-partisan support of LGBTQ people,” said Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). "Today the Massachusetts Senate continued that tradition by passing legislation that provides the opportunity for Massachusetts residents who are transgender or gender non-conforming to self-identify on all Massachusetts identification documents. Legislation passed by the Senate allows for accuracy, privacy, and safety for individuals who do not fit neatly into a specific gender identity. I am grateful to my colleagues for their support of gender non-conforming people. Our vote today recognizes the dignity of all, no matter their gender identity or expression.” “Identifying documents serve a variety of crucial purposes that help society function on a basic level,” said Christopher Jay, an attorney for the Massachusetts Family Institute which opposes the measure. “Introducing false and incomplete information into the system undermines their purpose and harms society. There is no logical boundary here. If someone can specify their gender regardless of biological fact, why not specify a different race, age, height, weight or eye color according to how the person feels?” Sen. Donald Humason (R- Westfield) was the lone vote against the bill. He did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call to comment on his vote (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes ROAD SAFETY (S 2570) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a bill designed to make roads safer and decrease the number of fatalities. The proposal requires bicyclists at night to use both a red rear light and a red rear reflector. Current law requires only a red light or a red reflector. Current law and the new law both require a white light in the front. The bill classifies several groups, including pedestrians, utility workers and cyclists, as “vulnerable road users.” The measure requires the operator of a motor vehicle that is passing a vulnerable user to maintain a distance of at least three feet when traveling at 30 miles per hour or less and an additional foot of space for every ten miles per hour above 30 miles per hour. Current law only requires motor vehicle operators to pass at “a safe distance and at a reasonable and proper speed.” Another provision requires a vehicle that is overtaking a vulnerable user or other vehicle to use all or part of an adjacent lane, crossing the center line if necessary, when it cannot pass at a safe distance in the same lane and only when it is safe to do so. The legislation also requires certain large vehicles or trailers that are purchased or leased by the state to be equipped with lateral protective devices, convex mirrors and cross-over mirrors. “We need to keep working year after year to achieve a future in which traffic fatalities get as close as possible to zero,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont), lead sponsor of the bill in the Senate. “This bill will help us move in the right direction.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) 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 filed. 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 April 22-26, the House met for a total of 42 hours and two minutes while the Senate met for a total of two hours and 18 minutes. Senate 11:20 a.m. to 11:27 a.m. No Senate session No Senate session Senate 11:14 a.m. to 1:25 p.m. No Senate session Bob Katzen welcomes feedback at bob@beaconhillrollcall.com
