THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, August 9, 2019 Page 3 Kiwanis Club 5K Walk for Ersilia on Sept. 28 Fundraiser to benefi t services to end domestic violence T he Kiwanis Club of Everett, in collaboration with the City of Everett and the Cataldo family, is conducting a 1st Annual 5K Walk for Ersilia on Saturday, September 28, 2019, in honor of our beloved former member and Vice President, the late Ersilia Cataldo Matarazzo. Our aim is to raise awareness about the problem of domestic violence and the severe destruction it produces, especially for women and families. All proceeds from the Walk will be given directly to the Ersilia Cataldo Matarazzo Memorial Fund by Everett Kiwanis, a 501(c)(3) public charity. This fund will support domestic violence victims’ advocacy programs that provide comprehensive services to people in our community whose lives have been directly impacted by domestic violence: the award winning Portal To Hope and Everett’s model program – recognized by the United States Conference of Mayors – the Everett Victim Advocacy Project (EVAP). This fund will also endow a scholarship in Ersilia’s name for Everett students with demonstrated community service and a concentration in social work. Together, we will engage Everett citizens and the broader community to come together in a fun and basic activity of neighborly camaraderie that also projects our caring humanity.

SIGNATURES | from page 1 didate running in the fall elections – including his own. City Clerk Sergio Cornelio said candidates can challenge their own signatures if they believe that some of them were thrown out in error. To appear on the ballot, each of the 38 candidates were required to collect a minimum of 250 signatures. However, candidates typically exceed the minimum requirement in the event that some of their signatures cannot be verified. Therefore, more than 9,500 signatures are now in question. Cornelio said D’Onofrio fi led the appropriate paperwork with his offi ce on Aug. 5. The deadline to challenge signatures was at 5 p.m. on Aug. 6. D’Onofrio’s challenge comes two weeks after his signatures were questioned by School Committee candidate David Lindsey and his wife, Gerly Adrien, who is running for City Council. Going forward, Cornelio said, there will be a hearing at which time a burden of proof must be provided. The matter will then go before the Election Commission to determine whether or not a signature is, in fact, valid. D’Onofrio did not wish to comment on the situation. “It’s not something that happens often,” Cornelio said of the two challenges. “We’ve only seen this once since I’ve been around.” Cornelio said that challenge was filed in 2011 when he, Kenneth Giannelli and Wayne Matewsky were running for the Ward 1 seat on what was then the Common Council. • Family Dentistry • Crowns • Bridges • Veneers/Lumineers • Dental Implants • All on 4 Dental Implants • Emergency Dentist • Kid Friendly Dentist • Root Canals • Dentures • Invisalign Braces • Snap On Smile • Teeth Whitening Richard Dell Isola – incumbent City Council president, eight years on the City Council, chairman of the Committee of the Whole, senior supervisor at Eversource Energy, volunteer at Everett Food Pantry, former member of the Common Council, former coach and coordinator for Pop Warner and former member of the Everett Elks.
