This thing is hindering development; we as a City Council have to take a stand at some point.” Therefore, Matewsky suggested that the Everett Redevelopment Authority consider taking the building by eminent domain. In addition, Matewsky called attention to the two For Lease signs on the front of the building. “I want those For Lease signs down, they look hideous,” he said. “They’re half the size of a billboard.” Matewsky also said Everett Square as a whole is in bad shape. “The square is being stifl ed; the square is depressed,” he said. “Where is the pride in Everett Square?” Matewsky compared Everett Square to Maplewood Square in Malden. “It’s a secondary square and it’s got more action than we do in our square,” he said. In addition, Matewsky said the Bouvier Building is not considered to be a historical site. “Something has to be done with it,” he said. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony DiPierro said building owner Jeff rey Bouvier is at fault. “It almost seems like the owner enjoys leaving it in the blighted SQUARE | SEE PAGE 4

Page 2 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Mayor celebrates Italian-American heritage M By Mayor Carlo DeMaria y parents are fi rst-generation Italian-Americans. My mother Rosa came to this country in 1966 from the Province of Avellino with her father and brother for a better life; although as my mother would tell you, their life was pretty good already back in Italy. My grandfather’s brother convinced them to come here so they wouldn’t have to work so hard on the farm; however farming and gardening remain a passion of my mother to this day. Later, the rest of the family joined them. In 1968, my mother returned to Italy to marry my father and bring him back to the states with her. He was a “carabaneri” or an Italian police offi cer and they had been engaged before she left. They’ve lived in Everett now for almost 50 years. Growing up, family always came fi rst, and it still does today. We celebrate our Italian heritage in everything we do, from big family get together to holiday gatherings and church on Sundays. And then of course, there’s the food! The homemade prosciutto and Soppressata, homemade ricotta and even homemade wine. There’s the sauce made from tomatoes grown lovingly in my mother’s garden, the pizza dinners at Easter, and the fi sh at Christmas. My brother and I both began working at a young age, my fi rst job being a paper boy at age seven at the Whidden hospital where I went up and down hospital hill. My work ethic is something instilled in me by parents, both of whom worked hard for our family to give us the best life possible. My mother worked for a wedding gown designer and my father worked in conMayor Carlo DeMaria with his mother Rosa. (Photo Courtesy of the City of Everett) struction and still does masonry work today. Honoring my Italian roots and passing down traditions to my children is something very special to me. I am extremely proud of my Italian heritage and always remember the sacrifices my parents made to come here and give us the beautiful life we enjoy today. I hope you’ll join me in celebrating Italian-American Heritage month this October. Hydrant fl ushing to begin on Oct. 4 M ayor Carlo DeMaria recently announced that the Water Department will be fl ushing water mains throughout the city beginning Monday, October 4 through November 12. Hydrant fl ushing will be performed Mondays– Fridays between the hours of 8 a.m. and 8 p.m. “Flushing our hydrants is crucial to maintaining clean water throughout the community,” said DeMaria. “I am grateful to the Water Department for dedicating their time to ensure the city is providing clean water to our residents.” The purpose of fl ushing is to remove sediment buildup in the mains and to verify the safe operation of hydrants and valves. Hydrant fl ushing might result in temporary discoloration of the water, which is caused by small particles that dislodge during the fl ushing, as well as temporary reduction in pressure. Discolored water will be temporary and is not harmful.

However, he said that unless there is a major building code violation, the council cannot order Bouvier to do anything. Ward 5 Councillor Rosa DiFlorio said Everett Square needs to be included in the city’s Urban Renewal Plan. “Everett Square is a disaster; it’s not just that building,” she said. “You’ve got two Dollar Stores that are a disgrace.” Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone said that for decades there have been discussions about renovating Everett Square. However, he said it is unlikely that Bouvier will make the fi rst move. “I think he’s waiting to see where the city’s going with the square,” said Capone. The council voted unanimously to refer Matewsky’s Resolution to the Division of Code Enforcement and the Everett Redevelopment Authority. Mayor’s longevity pay In other news, Capone presented an Ordinance that would remove the mayor’s $10,000 longevity compensation that is paid out for each completed term. He said the current salary for the mayor’s position is nearly $200,000 per year. “That’s a signifi cant amount of money,” he said. “It’s a hard job.” Therefore, Capone said, longevity pay is not a necessity. “The reward for doing a good job is getting reelected,” he said. The council voted 6-3 to refer the matter to the Legislative Aff airs Committee. Donations Although Village Fest will The Bouvier Building received negative attention from the City Council and could be taken by eminent domain.

Our parks and recreational spaces are an important part of our City and we are looking forward to meeting with them again to continue our discussion and fi nalize the designs.” The previous meeting, where residents shared their feedback, was held at Hale Park on Tuesday, September 14. They explained their concerns regarding the conditions of the current parks as well as the future designs.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 5 Life sciences and biotech planned for city’s waterfront F By Christopher Roberson our parcels of land along Everett’s waterfront may eventually be home to life science and biotechnology companies. Known as the Everett Land Assemblage, the 95.5-acre site includes 52 Beacham St., 51 Robin St., 0 South Farm Rd. and 211 Wharf Area. Mayor Carlo DeMaria said the opening of Encore Boston Harbor paved the way for further development on the waterfront. “I’d like to see 21st century jobs for residents, hotels, restaurants and venues that would bring life to that part of our city and compliment Encore,” he said. “With the size of the land, the opportunities are endless. Get excited Everett, this is great news.” In addition, DeMaria said the site is twice the size of Assembly Row in Somerville and is also larger than Boston’s Seaport District. “As mayor, I have long thought that areas such as this have far more potential than dirty industrial uses. I have envisioned a better future for Everett and this site, just as I did for Lower Broadway,” he said. “Think Encore on a far larger scale. This is the opportunity to continue to transform our city. This land will generate signifi cant tax dollars. Picture new roads, public transit and multiple Silver Line stops. This is the future of Everett.” According to commercial onMobil. “These parcels have been marketed for private sale and the group tasked with selling the land, JLL, has had a recent focus on bringing life sciences to Boston,” he said. “It is this type of ‘highest-and-best use’ that the city hopes this site will experience.” Lattanzi also said the project does not have an offi cial timeThe shaded area highlights the 95.5 acres of the Everett Land Assemblage. (Photo Courtesy of Jones Lang LaSalle) real estate company Jones Lang LaSalle (JLL), the assemblage is poised to be the “next transformative project” and will abut Sky Everett, 35 Garvey St. and The Mason. “With exceptional scale, transit access, water views and identity, this offering holds several unique competitive advantages that will drive successful development,” JLL representatives said in the project’s Executive Summary. In addition, the parcels are located within a designated Massachusetts Opportunity Zone and are adjacent to the city’s new Lower Broadway Zoning District. “This exciting opportunity is being off ered as is, free and clear and without an asking price,” said JLL representatives. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony DiPierro also expressed his excitement about the assemblage. “This is huge news for the future of our city. This is the direct result of over a decade's worth of work by the DeMaria Administration to transform Lower Broadway by cleaning up former industrial sites and creating entertainment venues, dining options and greenspace,” he said. “The best is yet to come for our beloved city and I am thrilled to be a part of it.” Matthew Lattanzi, acting director of Planning and Development, said the four parcels are currently owned by Exxline right now. “While there is bound to be an array of interest from private parties interested in purchasing the property, the city does not have a role in any sale and thus cannot speculate on a timeline,” he said.

Page 6 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Senate passes Healthy Youth Act O n September 23, the State Senate voted to pass a bill cosponsored by State Senator Sal DiDomenico, An Act relative to healthy youth (S.2534). This bill will ensure that Massachusetts public schools electing to teach sex education curriculum use age-appropriate, medically accurate and research-based information that covers a comprehensive range of topics. The legislation also calls for sex education to be inclusive and appropriate for students regardless of gender, race, disability status, sexual orientation and gender identity. The bill now moves on to the House of Representatives for consideration. “I am very proud that the Massachusetts Senate has again reaffi rmed our commitment to this commonsense health policy that will ensure your people have the tools needed to protect their health and form respectful relationships,” said DiDomenico, who is Vice-Chair of the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Education, which is the primary sponsor of the bill. “This legislation makes it clear that sex education in the ComLawrence A.

I would like to especially thank the many advocates who have partnered with us on this legislation and worked tirelessly to ensure Massachusetts youth have the information they need to build the bright futures they deserve––without shame or judgement.” Currently, public schools in the Commonwealth that choose to teach sex education are not required to use or adhere to a specific curriculum. While some schools provide comprehensive and effective sex education, others teach outdated and abstinence-focused programs, including curricula that ignores LGBTQIA+ health and critical lessons on consent. This has led to a patchwork of sexual education programs across the state. The Healthy Youth Act aims to change this by requiring school districts that offer sex education to follow certain guidelines when selecting a curriculum. This is vital to ensuring that students throughSal DiDomenico State Senator out the state are provided with age-appropriate, medically accurate and comprehensive information, including topics on: • The benefi ts of delaying sex • Human anatomy, reproduction and sexual development • Eff ective contraceptive use • Prevention of pregnancy and sexually transmitted infections (STIs) • Relationship and communication skills to form healthy relationships • Coverage of affirmative, conscious and voluntary consent • Information about gender identity and sexual orientation, including “resources and support services for all students, including, but not limited to, lesbian, gay, bisexual, transgender, intersex, agender, queer and questioning students” The bill does not require public schools to teach sex education but sets curriculum guidelines for those that do. The bill also protects and enhances parents’ right to remove their children from all or part of the sex education program if they choose to do so – an action already protected by state law. Additionally, this bill updates parent-notifi cation guidelines for districts that choose to teach sex education curriculum and requires schools to send notice to parents in English and in other commonly spoken languages in the district. Notice would alert parents that their child is enrolled in a sex education course and would inform them of their right to review the curriculum or opt their child out of some or all of the lessons. Now in its 10th year, the Healthy Youth Act has been passed by the Senate several times over in previous legislative sessions. The most recent iteration of the bill incorporates additional feedback from experts, educators and advocates, and was cosponsored by 70 representatives and 24 SENATE | SEE PAGE 9

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 GREATER BOSTON LEAGUE NOTEBOOK: MIAA to student-athletes... Get the Vax! State board votes in near-unanimous fashion to support schools in encouraging student-athletes to get vaccinated against COVID-19 By Steve Freker T he Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Board of Directors made it loud and clear what its stance would be when it comes to student-athletes and the widely-available COVID-19 vaccine: Get the Vax! At a meeting at its Franklin headquarters on Tuesday and following a recommendation by its Sports Medicine Committee, the MIAA Board of Directors voted nearly unanimously, 22-0-1, in favor of encouraging student-athletes to take the COVID-19 vaccination shots. According to recently appointed MIAA Executive Director Bob Baldwin, the Board’s support was in line with the National Federation of High Schools (NFHS) guidance on the issue. Baldwin told the Board that NFHS has set the goal “of getting as many kids vaccinated as possible.” The MIAA director also noted that it would be valuable to get ahead of this issue before the arrival of winter sports, largely due to the fact that some of the MIAA’s traditional, premier postseason venues, such as the TD Garden in Boston, where high-level basketball and hockey championships have been played in the past, are now requiring proof of vaccination for entry to events. Malden Public Schools Director of Athletics Charlie Conefrey is a member of the MIAA Board of Directors, as well as MIAA District 5 Chairperson, and he joined his colleagues in voting to encourage student-athletes to be vaccinated. There are no public high schools in Massachusetts that formally mandate that students be vaccinated to either attend school or participate in interscholastic athletics, though nearly every school The MIAA Board of Directors voted Tuesday in near unanimous fashion to urge Massachusetts student-athletes to get vaccinated against COVID-19. has strict protocols in place to address student-athletes who either display COVID-19 symptoms or test positive for COVID-19. Similar protocols such as these are in place at Everett High, Malden High and Revere High, as well as the fi ve other GBL schools: Chelsea High, Lynn Classical, Lynn English, Medford and Somerville. **** Nearly 40 years of Malden High Football Coaching represented by three former coaches at MHS opener When Malden High opened its season on September 16, nearly 40 years of coaching contributions were represented by the attendance of three former Golden Tornadoes football head coaches. Present at the game were former MHS football Head Coaches Paul Finn, Joe Pappagallo and Steve Freker. Coach Finn is one of the longest-serving head coaches of any sport in MHS history, as he led the Golden Tornadoes’ football fortunes from 1973 to 1998: 27 seasons. Pappagallo was MHS head football coach from 2009-2015 – seven seasons – and Freker was MHS head football coach for the past three seasons: from 2017-2020. Altogether? That’s 37 seasons from three of the last six coaches – spanning the period from 1973-2021 – who were on hand for new Head Coach Witche Exilhomme’s head coaching debut. Some side notes: Coach Exilhomme’s head coach from 2009-2011 at MHS was Coach Pappagallo, and Coach Freker played under Coach Finn in the late 1970s and then coached alongside him for 17 years as a Malden High football assistant coach from 19821998. **** Revere High Boys Soccer is experienced... and talented This year’s Revere High Boys Soccer team is one of the most experienced in the Greater Boston League, boasting 12 seniors. So do not make the mistake of underestimating the young Patriots talent-wise. Head Coach Manny Lopes’ team has already demonstrated they can hold their own with a 2-1-1 start so far this year, including wins over Medford and Chelsea and a 2-2 tie with Lynn English. Revere was supposed to have hosted Malden on Tuesday, but that game was washed out. The youthful Patriots were scheduled to host co-first place holder Everett (with Medford) last night at Della Russo Stadium under the lights. The results were not available at press time. The Patriots were looking to avenge a season-opening, 3-2 loss to the Crimson Tide. STUDENT-ATHLETES | SEE PAGE 11 (Courtesy Photo)

The PAT kick was no good and Everett led 6-0. Everett Head Coach Rob DiLoreto’s “bread and butter,” go-to guy, senior Jayden Clerveaux, then broke the game open a bit with a 33-yard touchdown run, followed by a Syeed Gibbs conversion rush, to make it 14-0 Everett. The scoring continued for the Tide when the Everett defense caused another three-and-out for Lynn English and the Tide capped another scoring drive on its third possession. This time it was Mohammed who broke a long run, 38-yards, on a thirdand-three play for a 20-0 lead. Santos’ PAT kick tacked on another Tide point. Everett did not relent after a 21-0 fi rst quarter lead and scored twice more in the second quarter to go ahead 35-0 at the halftime break. The Tide continued its balanced attack when, after driving the ball from its own 35 to the Lynn English 21, Ellerbe threw a pass this bill and sign it into law.” Sex education programs have repeatedly been shown to work best when they emphasize the value of delaying sex while also teaching students about the importance of protecting themselves from unintended consequences. As demonstrated by numerous studies, comprehensive sex education programs have been proven to delay the initiation of sex, increase use of contraception, lower the dart to Marcus Scott on the right fl at and Scott wheeled to his left and broke a tackle on his way to a 21-yard touchdown reception. Santos’ kick made it 28-0, Tide. Richie Malloy’s 20-yard touchdown run and a Santos PAT kick made it a 35-0 halftime lead.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 11 Mystic Valley fi les Complaint against Mass. Department of Elementary and Secondary Education VALLEY | SEE PAGE 13 Special to Th e Advocate M ystic Valley Regional Charter School recently fi led a complaint in Suff olk Superior Court against the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) in response to a draft report issued by DESE which will impact Mystic Valley’s application for reauthorization in 2023. Summary of the Complaint Mystic Valley filed a complaint on September 20, in Suff olk Superior Court against DESE seeking to enjoin the Department from evaluating the school based upon what the school contends are newly created, unlawful, vague and targeted “cultural proficiency” criteria that would put the school in breach of its Charter and potentially cause it to be shut down. Mystic Valley is a widely respected, successful charter school that has been regularly rechartered over the last two decades by the state without issue. Mystic Valley employs a dress code and bases its curriculum on a commonality and “melting pot” approach to education that is hyper-focused on excellence in academic achievement. Mystic Valley alleges in its Complaint that it has unearthed internal DESE emails showing that DESE is directly targeting Mystic Valley and its Charter, including by appointing at least one member of a review panel who openly described the member’s bias and intention to go after Mystic STUDENT-ATHLETES | FROM PAGE 8 A trio of senior captains, Arath Hernandez, David Marquez and David Paiva, lead the way along with fellow seniors Alex Diaz, Emerson Pineda Mejia, Joshuan Flores, Kayo De Souza Lopez, Keny Guerrero Alvarez, Karlot Quiroz, Luis Marquez, Brayan Hanao, Christian and Mateo Norena.

At very same time, internal DESE email conceded that DESE had no formal complaints pending against Mystic Valley from anyone. Mystic Valley strenuously objects to the draft report and issues the following statement from its Board of Trustees “This is a case about academic freedom. The Commonwealth of Massachusetts granted Mystic Valley’s charter more than twenty years ago, and the School has successfully followed its charter ever since. However, DESE is now clearly working to try and undermine Mystic Valley’s charter and approach to education. DESE’s biased actions are an existential threat to our continued operations, jeopardizing the very core of Massachusetts’s legal obligation to protect charter schools and their autonomy. That is why we have gone to court. “We are proud of our school, its mission, its values, its diverse community and the achievements of our thousands of students and alumni. We will continue to defend our community against baseless attacks. If we do not, thousands of students of all races, ethnicities, incomes, and backgrounds will lose the opportunity to attend a nationally recognized school with a remarkable record of student achievement. We cannot let that happen. “It is clear that the DESE officials who conducted the site visit did so with a pre-existing bias against our school and


THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 13 Josie’s Place ordered to start closing at 11 p.m. By Christopher Roberson J osie’s Place, which is already on probation until the end of the year, recently had its closing time moved from 1 a.m. to 11 p.m. During the September 27 meeting of the Licensing Board, Chairman Philip Antonelli said police responded to Josie’s at 2:45 p.m. on September 1 after receiving a report that a patron had collapsed. Upon arrival, police found that Peter Ward, the son of owner Josephine Ward, had fallen off a bar stool. It was quickly determined that Peter was suff ering from an overdose, and he was given one dose of Narcan. He was then taken to Massachusetts General Hospital. However, Antonelli said the hospital reported that Peter had more drugs with him and overdosed a second time. “He’s a grown man who’s lost his way and he’s putting this on you,” Antonelli said to Josephine. “With Peter there, you can’t stay open.” He also advised Josephine to change her management structure as the current managers are not operating the establishment in accordance with the board’s regulations. Licensing Board Member Michael Dantone told Josephine that the board has been lenient with her Main Street establishment. “In any other town, you wouldn’t have this license anymore,” he said. Member Philip Arloro said he does not see things getting any better in the immediate future and made the motion to have Josie’s start closing at 11 p.m. “This is going to be repetitive; it’s getting out of control,” he said. “You need to take full control of this.” This is also not the fi rst time that Josie’s has been put on probation.

According to the Mystic River Watershed Association (MyRWA), a predator, most likely striped bass, may have forced the fi sh up the river, where dissolved oxygen is less plentiful. Although menhaden can grow up to 15 inches long, they are no match for stripers, which can reach fi ve feet in length. Pollution was ruled out as a possible cause as the Mystic River received a “B+” rating on the latest Water Quality Report Card. “Although we are saddened by the death of this incredible species, this most recent fi sh kill actually shows the health of the Mystic River Watershed and the Boston Harbor. Over the past several years, we have worked with the MWRA [Massachusetts Water Resources Authority] and our environmental partners to reduce pollution entering this valuable resource,” said Mayor Carlo DeMaria. “Today, we have abundant wildlife and a healthy marine habitat. For many years, menhaden were absent from these waters due to pollution. Today there are literally hundreds of thousands of these fish present. This event is a natural phenomenon caused by predator fi sh driving these smaller fi sh into less oxygenated, crowded waters, literally suff ocating a small percentage of them.” Patrick Herron, executive director of MyRWA, said he sensed trouble when he noticed a large school of menhaden near the Amelia Earhart Dam. This is also not the river’s fi rst fi sh kill. A similar incident took place in July 2018, resulting in 50,000 dead fi sh. According to the state Division of Fisheries and Wildlife, in addition to a lack of dissolved oxygen, fi sh kills can also be triggered by disease or spawning stress. Lower Broadway District could include Everett Land Assemblage M By Christopher Roberson ayor Carlo DeMaria recently asked that the City Council consider expanding the Lower Broadway Economic Development District to include the 95.5-acre Everett Land Assemblage. “I didn’t want to wait two more weeks,” he said during the council’s special meeting on September 29. “I want to get the ball rolling; this opportunity is too VALLEY | FROM PAGE 11 its charter. In internal emails exchanged six months before any site visit, DESE personnel repeatedly stated, without evidence, that Mystic Valley is in need of reform. They used this sham site visit, conducted virtually and without ever setting foot on Mystic Valley’s campus, to set up an agenda-driven takedown of one of the best schools in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. “This comes as surprise, as DESE has reauthorized Mystic Valley’s charter and educational mission without fanfare every five years since the school’s founding in 1998. “We took advantage of the statutory revision period and submitted our changes and criticisms of the integrity of the draft report but have received no assurances that DESE will rescind it. It is unimportant. We’re moving from an industrial city to a 21st century city – it’s happening.” Matthew Lattanzi, acting director of Planning and Development, spoke about the benefit of including the assemblage in the Lower Broadway District. He said the inclusion would prohibit the site from being used for heavy manufacturing and that a special permit would be needed for light manufacturing. fortunate that it has come to legal action, but with no recognition of the gravity of this matter from DESE and no intervention from the Massachusetts Board of Elementary and Secondary Education, this course of action was unavoidable.

Page 14 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Mayor opens conversation on Hale Street, Central Avenue Parks By Christopher Roberson n his ongoing eff ort to revitalize Everett’s parks by 2024, Mayor Carlo DeMaria recently initiated a discussion with neighborhood residents about renovating Hale Street Park and converting the Woodland Street Playground into what will be Central Avenue Park. I During the September 14 meeting, Leslie Fanger, senior landscape architect at Bohler Engineering, said that right now, Hale Street Park is not conducive to “children’s active play.” Therefore, she said, one side of the park would feature a tot lot and the other side would have a playground for older children. “This is basically just a perfect square,” said Fanger. “It felt natural to have a balanced design.” She said the park’s focal point would be a water play area. “It’s not going to be one of those gushing waterfalls,” she said, adding that it would be more of a mist. Fanger said the entrance would remain on Glendale Street with a pergola and a brick plaza tying everything together. “This park is meant to have something for everybody,” she said. “We want to make the park pop.” However, one resident said the real need is for additional parking. “Vernal Street in the wintertime is terrible; it’s like a war zone over here sometimes,” he said. “Here, you don’t need another park.” Other residents said only minor improvements are needed at the park. Fanger said that unlike Hale Street Park, Central Avenue Park would be “passive park.” She said there would be a walking path and a trellis in the back of the park. In addition, Fanger said there would be an etched metal fence at the front of the park and that the rest of the property would be secured with a chain link fence.

State Police arrest protestors who blocked road in front of governor’s house A t approximately 7 a.m. on September 28, several protestors blocked a public roadway in Swampscott by chaining themselves to a large boat that they trailered to the front of Governor Charlie Baker’s residence. State Police responded and ordered the protestors to unchain themselves and disperse. When they refused and continued obstructing traffic, troopers – who are specially trained to respond to civil disturbances – cut the devices holding the protestors to the boat and took them into custody. Seven protestors who were chained to the boat were arrested, as well as an eighth protestor who was atop the boat. The demonstrators were identified as Gregory Mangan, 69, of Somerville; Gerard Frank, 67, of Dudley; James Comiskey, 31, of Somerville; Jennifer Smith, 47, of Watertown; Dylan Sessler, 27, of Hampstead, N.H.; Allen McGonagill, 32, of Somerville; Nora Maynard, 38, of Turners Falls and Alexander Chambers, 23, of Boylston. The protestors were taken to a State Police barracks for booking. The boat was removed from the roadway. The demonstrators were charged with disorderly conduct and trespassing and were arraigned in Lynn District Court.

Page 16 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Baker establishes fi rst ever Commission on Clean Heat B uilding on the Baker-Polito Administration’s national leadership on climate change and its commitment to achieving net-zero greenhouse gas emissions by 2050, on September 20 Governor Charlie Baker signed an Executive Order which establishes a Commission on Clean Heat to advise the Administration on strategies and policies to achieve deep emissions reductions from the use of heating fuels in the Commonwealth. The Commission, the fi rst-of-its-kind in the United States, will establish a framework for a long-term decline in emissions from heating fuels – consistent with the fi ndings from the “Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap” – and help the Commonwealth meet the ambitious emissions reduction targets signed into law by Baker in March 2021. The Executive Order was signed as the Administration celebrates Climate Week in Massachusetts. “Recognizing the urgent challenge presented by climate change and the need to reduce emissions, our Administration is convening this fi rstof-its-kind commission to help the Commonwealth meet our emissions reduction goals,” said Baker. “By soliciting the expertise of leaders with a variety of perspectives, including the aff ordable housing community, we can ensure that the strategies and policies we pursue to reduce emissions from heating fuels will be innovative, aff ordable, and equitable.” “Massachusetts has ambitious climate goals, and we will need to pursue innovative solutions to reduce emissions from our heating fuels, keep costs low, and deliver lasting benefi ts to our communities,” said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “The Commission on Clean Heat will refl ect a diversity of expertise that will be crucial in developing the forward-thinking policies we need to achieve our nation-leading emissions reduction targets.” The Commission will be chaired by Energy and Environmental Aff airs (EEA) Secretary Kathleen Theoharides, or a designee appointed by the EEA secretary, and shall include up to 22 additional members recommended by the EEA secretary and appointed by the governor. The Commission will refl ect a diversity of perspectives and backgrounds from outside stakeholders, including representatives from the fi elds of affordable housing, energy effi - cient building design and construction, healthcare, heating system design and technology, real estate and heating fuel distribution. Once appointed, the Commission will meet regularly, advise the governor on a framework for long-term greenhouse gas emission reductions from heating fuels and provide policy recommendations to help the Commonwealth meet the requirements of the Global Warming Solutions Act. In March, Baker signed nation-leading climate legislation that commits the Commonwealth to reducing emissions below 1990 levels by 50 percent by 2030, 75 percent by 2040 and to achieve net-zero emissions by 2050. “By working directly with stakeholders and soliciting a variety of perspectives, Massachusetts will be in a stronger position to develop innovative policies and solutions to cost-eff ectively reduce emissions from heating homes and buildings,” said Secretary Theoharides. “The Executive Order signed by Governor Baker once again puts Massachusetts on the leading edge of climate action in the U.S. by taking a deliberate, collaborative and thoughtful approach to decarbonizing our buildings sector.” “Transitioning our buildings sector to a clean, resilient, and aff ordable future will require an unprecedented level of ambition, planning, and ultimately energy effi ciency and clean energy deployment. Massachusetts has led the nation in bold and innovative energy policy and today’s Executive Order signed by Governor Baker embarks our state in another chapter of our climate leadership with a singular focus on clean building policies,” said Department of Energy Resources Commissioner Patrick Woodcock. “In order to achieve our long-term climate goals, we will need to make signifi cant investments to lower emissions from our buildings sector through energy effi ciency and clean energy and this new Commission starts the process with collaboration, deliberation, and analysis that will set that foundation.” Aligned with the “Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap,” the Commission will develop policy recommendations to accelerate the deployment of energy effi ciency programs and clean heating systems in new and existing buildings and transition existing distribution systems to clean energy. The Commission’s focus will include fi nancing mechanisms, incentives and other regulatory options, including a framework for a cap on greenhouse gas emissions from heating fuels. As it develops its recommendations, the Commission will consider the various benefi ts of any policy proposal as well as aff ordability, equity and how it works within specifi c regional circumstances. The Commission will provide Baker with a set of policy recommendations by November 30, 2022, that will sustainably reduce the use of heating fuels and minimize emissions from the building sector while ensuring costs and opportunities arising from such reductions are distributed equitably. “As we continue to tackle the dual challenges of economic recovery and the housing crisis, I am pleased that we will have a Commission comprised of leaders with varied perspectives to deliberate on this important topic,” said Housing and Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy. “We look forward to the conversations and strategies that will come out of this collaborative eff ort.” The Executive Order also establishes an Interagency Building Decarbonization Task Force to support the work of the Commission. This Task Force will consist of subject matter experts from across the BAKER | SEE PAGE 21

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 17 Health Care For All releases new report on struggles with affording health care H ealth Care For All is releasing two briefs on survey results conducted by the Altarum Healthcare Value Hub that outline how unaff ordable care is driving health inequities in Massachusetts during the COVID-19 pandemic and beyond. While consumer concerns over health care costs have been documented, these surveys off er a more in-depth look at how these concerns impact residents in Massachusetts – despite high rates of insurance coverage. “Massachusetts families have been drowning in health care costs for far too long, and COVID-19 has pulled back the curtain and revealed the challenges that have long existed in our health care system,” said Health Care for All Executive Director Amy Rosenthal. “The survey shows how widespread the aff ordability crisis is in Massachusetts and the disproportionate impact it has on People of Color and low-income residents. These results should spur legislators into action to deliver families the relief they so urgently need. We must pass the More Aff ordable Care Act and prescription drug cost reform this session.” The survey results paint a troubling picture for the state of health care aff ordability in Massachusetts. Some key fi ndings include: • Fifty-one percent experienced healthcare aff ordability burdens, such as forgoing care. • Seventy-four percent are worried about aff ording health care in the future. • Fifty-one percent are worried about aff ording treatment for COVID-19 if they need it. • Forty-seven percent are worried about affording the cost of prescription drugs. “I had to retire when I got sick, and now have to purchase insurance on my own, with premiums that are hundreds of dollars a month, and about to jump even higher,” said Floyd Elam, a Dorchester resident who called Health Care For All’s HelpLine. “On top of that, I have high blood pressure and the copays for my prescription are going from $25 a month to $50. At that rate, I don’t even know if I can aff ord to keep taking the medication.” The survey also highlighted the racial, ethnic, economic and geographic inequities of health care aff ordability in the state. Concerns about health care aff ordability and prescription drug costs were highest among Black/African American and Hispanic/Latino residents, people with household incomes of less than $100,000 per year and people living in the Boston region. Specifi c fi ndings include: • Seventy-five percent of Black/African American adults and 68% of Hispanic/Latino adults reported facing aff ordability burdens, compared with 46% of white adults. • Sixty-one percent of families making less than $50,000 per year experienced aff ordability burdens, which is higher than in any other income group. • Thirty-six percent of Black/ African American respondents and 33% of Hispanic/Latino respondents reported not fi lling a prescription, cutting pills in half or skipping a dose of medicine, compared to 19% of white respondents. “Since the average income of families of color is signifi cantly lower than that of White families, higher prescription drug prices contribute to the health care disparities between the two communities,” said NAACP, New England Area Conference President Juan Cofi eld. “Lowering prescription drug prices will reduce these health care disparities between the two communities. Accordingly, the NAACP, New England Area Conference is proud to support H.729 and S.771.” “For the physician community, the high and continually rising cost of prescription drugs undermines our ability to provide the best clinical care possible and directly impacts the health of our patients,” said Massachusetts Medical Society Past President Dr. Ronald Dunlap. “The disproportionate impact drug aff ordability has on communities of color and the related exacerbation of disparate health outcomes is unconscionable. Our patients deserve the opportunity to obtain the highest attainable standard of health, with aff ordable high quality care, including prescription drugs, which are critical for optimal health. For our patients, we urge the legislature to pass H.729/S.771.” The survey also found that Massachusetts residents have a strong desire for government action on health care costs across party lines. Bills currently before the state legislature that could address the concerns raised in the survey include An Act to ensure more aff ordable care or the MAC Act (H.1247/S.782), An Act to ensure prescription drug cost transparency and aff ordability (H.729) and An Act relative to pharmaceutical access, costs and transparency (S.771). “These survey briefs show that far too many Massachusetts residents are burdened by unaff ordable health care,” said State Senator John Keenan, who is a lead sponsor of the MAC Act. “The MAC Act will address these concerns by reforming the rate review process to enhance transparency and protect consumers from excessive health insurance premium hikes. It will also implement a reinsurance program to lower premiums for individuals and small businesses. We can’t wait any longer to deliver Massachusetts residents the relief they need.” “No one should ever have to make the decision between paying for health care or putting food on their table, and the survey released today clearly shows it is disproportionately Black and Latinx residents that face impossible choices because of unaff ordable care,” said State Representative Christine Barber, who is a lead sponsor of the MAC Act and An Act to ensure prescription drug cost transparency and aff ordability. “The MAC Act will help address longstanding racial disparities in health care access by eliminating co-pays for certain treatments for chronic conditions that are more likely to impact low-income communities and communities of color. It will also establish a consumer benchmark to rein in the rising costs of premiums, deductibles and copays.” “We need to act now to improve access to affordable medications for all,” said State Senator Cindy Friedman, who is a lead sponsor of An Act relative to pharmaceutical access, costs and transparency and Senate Chair of the Legislature’s Health Care Financing Committee. “This legislation will implement cost assistance programs to improve affordability for some medications used to treat chronic conditions that disproportionately impact people of color and are also COVID-19 risk factors and empower the Health Policy Commission to hold manufacturers accountable for unreasonable or excessive prices. By reining in prescription drug costs and increasing transparency and oversight within the pharmaceutical industry, we can drive down costs within our healthcare system and improve patients’ ability to access HEALTH | SEE PAGE 24

Page 18 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Developer Selected for Chelsea Soldiers’ Home Domiciliary Project C HELSEA – The Baker Polito Administration announced this week the designation of Pennrose, LLC., as the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea domiciliary campus redevelopment partner. This designation follows a competitive bid process that included request for proposals (RFP) and an extensive developer selection process involving a collaboration across multiple state agencies including the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea, the Department of Veterans’ Services, the Executive Offi ce of Health and Human Services, and the Division of Capital Asset Management and Maintenance (DCAMM). The RFP requires Pennrose to ensure that the redeveloped site offers a full complement of services to Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea domiciliary residents and staff at the redeveloped site, including case management, clinical care, prepared meals, and transportation. The redevelopment is expected to break ground in 2023, and will include 248 units of mixed-income housing across a broad range of household sizes. “The Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea redevelopment project represents our administration’s continued commitment to providing the Commonwealth’s veterans with the housing and care they deserve,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “The selection of this development partner is a major step towards better meeting the needs of veteran residents, their families, and the community now and in the future.” “For several years, our administration has engaged in a comprehensive strategic planning process to address the future needs of the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Today’s announcement is a signifi cant step forward toward realizing the vision that has been laid out, and we look forward to Pennrose’s redevelopment project.” The 8.7-acre site is centered along Crest Avenue and is currently home to approximately 150 veteran residents in single room occupancy style accommodations, with shared bathrooms and central dining. The Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea Campus Redevelopment Master Plan was completed by DCAMM in 2019 and identifi ed program and campus goals to provide needed capital investment, refresh the historic domiciliary program, and provide a 21st century, state-of-the-art, environment for an evolving veterans community with diverse residential needs. “An exciting component of the renovation of the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea includes the creation of aff ordable and responsive housing for our Veterans,” said Secretary of Health and Human Services Marylou Sudders. “Today’s announcement is the critical next step in revitalizing the campus of the Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea.” “The Soldiers’ Home in Chelsea is an historic fixture in the community that we have worked diligently to preserve the key services of health care and housing for Veterans in Massachusetts who have served our nation,” said Cheryl Lussier Poppe, Secretary of Veterans’ Services. “From the start, Pennrose demonstrated they excel in redeveloping complex properties into dynamic aff ordable housing that serves a diverse Veteran population.” “Pennrose, LLC. brings a wealth of expertise in veterans preference housing and multi-phased, adaptive reuse, campus developments” said DCAMM Commissioner Carol Gladstone. “They are a strong partner that is committed to being responsive to the needs of the Commonwealth’s Veterans’ community.” Pennrose, LLC. is a nationally acclaimed developer headquartered in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania. Over the last six years, Pennrose’s local Boston offi ce has worked to build a pipeline of over 300 units of aff ordable housing throughout the Commonwealth. They have a strong track record across the east coast as a developer and property manager of Veteran’s Housing and demonstrated success in achieving diversity and inclusion objectives in comparable projects.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 19 School mask requirement extended E lementary and Secondary Education Commissioner Jeff rey Riley recently notifi ed school districts that he will extend the mask requirement for all public K-12 students, educators and staff through at least November 1. Middle and high schools with 80 percent of their students and staff vaccinated will have the option to lift the mandate by submitting an attestation form to the department on October 15. If a school has already collected proof of vaccination and meets the 80 percent threshold, it may submit the attestation form before October 15 for consideration. Once a school completes the verifi cation process, vaccinated students and staff will no longer be required to wear masks. “Local school districts will have the option to remove masks for middle and high schools that reach this high vaccination rate among students and staff ,” said Education Secretary James Peyser. “We know some communities will want to submit verifi cation quickly, and other communities might choose to continue their mask policies for now. This policy allows communities to make the decision at the local level.” “The best interest of students and staff as they return safely to full-time, in-person instruction this fall is at the forefront of my decision. Wearing masks is an important additional measure to keep students in school safely at this time,” said Commissioner Riley. “As health conditions evolve, we will continue to work with medical experts to fi nd masking off -ramps for our youngest students who are not yet eligible for vaccines.” In August the Board of Elementary and Secondary Education gave the commissioner the authority to require masks for public school staff and students (ages fi ve and above) in all grades through at least October 1. The commissioner said he would revise the requirement as warranted by public health data. The department released a policy to districts on how to submit documentation once they reach the 80 percent vaccination threshold and school and district leaders decide to lift the mask requirement. The rate is to be calculated on a school-by-school basis, not at the district level, and must include all enrolled students in the building plus any staff regularly providing in-school services. Schools should determine a confi dential method to collect proof of COVID-19 vaccination for all eligible staff and students, such as a COVID-19 vaccination record, a copy of a record card, a signed self-attestation completed by the vaccinated individual or parent/ guardian, or a printout from the Massachusetts Immunization Information System. Unvaccinated students and staff would still be required to wear masks. The mandate includes exceptions for students who cannot wear a mask due to medical conditions or behavioral needs. Mobile vaccination clinics The Administration offers mobile pop-up vaccination clinics in community-based settings, including schools. The clinics are available to employers, schools and school districts, community organizations and other groups.

The Executive Order advances the Baker-Polito Administration’s commitment to take aggressive action on climate change and achieve net-zero emissions in 2050. On December 30, 2020, the Administration released two reports – the Massachusetts 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap Report and an interim 2030 Clean Energy and Climate Plan – that detail policies and strategies to equitably and cost-effectively reduce emissions and combat climate change. The Commission on Clean Heat was identifi ed by the Administration as a critical tool in the eff ort to reduce emissions from heating fuels. The heating of buildings currently accounts for nearly one-third of statewide greenhouse gas emissions in Massachusetts. During this year’s Climate Week in Massachusetts, the Baker-Polito Administration has been highlighting its commitment to reducing emissions, mitigating the impacts of climate change and building a more resilient Commonwealth. Throughout Climate Week, the Administration has been holding events to spotlight important initiatives, including offshore wind, land protection and conservation, the Greening the Gateway Cities program and the expansion of clean energy in the Commonwealth. The Administration is also highlighting the urgent demand for funding to support climate resiliency in Massachusetts and Baker’s plan to immediately put to use part of the Commonwealth's direct federal aid from the American Rescue Plan Act to support critical priorities in cities and towns. The Administration’s plan would commit $900 million to key energy and environmental initiatives, including $400 million to modernize critical water infrastructure and $300 million to support local climate resilience projects.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 23 Baker fi les legislation to further support military families transferring to Massachusetts n late September the Baker-Polito Administration filed legislation (Senate Bill 2542) to improve the occupational licensing process for certain professions for military families transferring to Massachusetts. The legislation would help facilitate license portability for military families transferring to military installations in Massachusetts by entering the Commonwealth into a series of interstate licensure compacts and other agreements. On September 27, the Senate referred S.2542 to the Legislature’s Joint Committee on Veterans and FederI al Aff airs. “This legislation will help the Commonwealth further improve and streamline the process for military families who are looking to transfer their professional licenses to Massachusetts,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Our administration is committed to helping these military families successfully resettle in the Commonwealth, and these steps will ensure that military families who are making Massachusetts their new home will have an easier time in keeping their professional licenses and maintaining that source of income.” “Massachusetts has a long history of supporting the many military veterans and their families here who have made diffi cult sacrifi ces during their service,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “That support includes prioritizing professional licenses for incoming families, and this bill removes additional barriers to household stability and civilian careers for those transferring to military installations in the Commonwealth.” The legislation would implement recommendations made by the Division of Occupational Licensure (DOL) – formerly the Division of Professional Licensure – in accordance with Executive Order 593, which was signed by Baker in February 2021. The Executive Order directed the DOL to study interstate compacts and similar agreements relative to licensure for professions licensed by five boards under DOL’s purview. The professions covered by this order were identifi ed by the Air Force and Department of Defense and include physical therapists (and physical therapy assistants), accountants, engineers, psychologists and barbers and cosmetologists. Upon implementation of this bill, Massachusetts would be able to participate in the Nurse Licensure Compact, the Physical Therapy Compact and the Psychology Interjurisdictional Compact. Participation in these compacts allows qualifi ed practitioners from member states to obtain the ability to practice in Massachusetts via a streamlined process that reduces regulatory burdens for these professionals while also enhancing access to care for the consumer. In turn, Massachusetts licensees would also benefi t from the ability to practice in other states that are part of the compacts. “Behind each of the Commonwealth’s six military installations are dedicated men and women serving their nation and providing for their families,” said Housing and Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy. “These military installations drive signifi cant economic activity, and by simplifying the process of transferring professional licenses, we can increase our support for military families relocating to Massachusetts by making it easier for those family members holding professional licenses to continue their careers.” “The DOL continues to prioritize professional licenses for military personnel and their spouses and is committed to improving the licensee experience,” said DOL Commissioner Layla D’Emilia. “The addition of interstate compacts, streamlined DOL web resources for military-connected applicants, and appointment of dedicated staff to support these applicants helps to further ease the process for military families relocating to Massachusetts.” “This eff ort refl ects the misDEA issues Public Safety Alert on sharp increase in fake prescription pills containing fentanyl and meth T he federal Drug Enforcement Administration (DEA) has issued a Public Safety Alert warning Americans of the alarming increase in the lethality and availability of fake prescription pills containing fentanyl and methamphetamine (meth). DEA’s Public Safety Alert, its fi rst in six years, seeks to raise public awareness of a signifi cant nationwide surge in counterfeit pills that are mass-produced by criminal drug networks in labs, deceptively marketed as legitimate prescription pills and are killing unsuspecting Americans at an unprecedented rate. These counterfeit pills have been seized by DEA in every U.S. state in unprecedented quantities. More than 9.5 million counterfeit pills were seized so far this year, which is more than in the last two years combined. DEA laboratory testing reveals a dramatic rise in the number of counterfeit pills containing at least two milligrams of fentanyl, which is considered a lethal dose. A deadly dose of fentanyl is small enough to fi t on the tip of a pencil. Counterfeit pills are illegally manufactured by criminal drug networks and are made to look like real prescription opioid medications – such as oxycodone (OxyContin, Percocet), hydrocodone (Vicodin) and alprazolam (Xanax) – or stimulants like amphetamines (Adderall). Fake prescription pills are widely accessible and often sold on social media and e-commerce platforms – making them available to anyone with a smartphone, including minors. “The United States is facing an unprecedented crisis of overdose deaths fueled by illegally manufactured fentanyl and methamphetamine,” said DEA AdministraDEA | SEE PAGE 24 sion and eff ectiveness of the Commonwealth’s Military Asset and Security Strategy Task Force (MASS-TF) in protecting and strengthening our military installations,” said MASSTF Executive Director John Beatty. “Led by the governor’s team, we have worked across the Baker-Polito Administration and with our state legislators, installation leaders, our Mass National Guard, and directly with the Department of Defense, the Air Force, and Army to ensure we arrived at the right initiative that will guarantee Massachusetts remains a welcoming place for service members and their families.” This bill seeks to build on previously enacted laws, including Valor Act I of 2012 and Valor Act II of 2014, that assist and support military families returning from active duty or relocating to Massachusetts. The Commonwealth remains a leader in professional licensure, ensuring that licensees receive proper training to practice in their field safely and competently. This legislation to join interstate compacts will not only assist the military community and licensees, but the citizens of the Commonwealth will have increased access to the best healthcare available.

Page 24 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 DEA | FROM PAGE 23 tor Anne Milgram. “Counterfeit pills that contain these dangerous and extremely addictive drugs are more lethal and more accessible than ever before. In fact, DEA lab analyses reveal that two out of every fi ve fake pills with fentanyl contain a potentially lethal dose. DEA is focusing resources on taking down the violent drug traffi ckers causing the greatest harm and posing the greatest threat to the safety and health of Americans. Today, we are alerting the public to this danger so that people have the information they need to protect themselves and their children.” According to the DEA, most counterfeit pills brought into the United States are produced in Mexico, and China is supplying chemicals for the manufacturing of fentanyl in Mexico. The drug overdose crisis in the United States is a serious public safety threat with rates currently reaching the highest level in history. Drug traffi ckers are using fake pills to exploit the opioid crisis and prescription drug misuse in the United States, bringing overdose deaths and violence to American communities. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), more than 93,000 people died of a drug overdose in the United States last year. Fentanyl, the synthetic opioid most commonly found in counterfeit pills, is the primary driver of this alarming increase in overdose deaths. Drug poisonings involving meth, increasingly found to be pressed into counterfeit pills, also continue to rise as illegal pills containing meth become more widespread. Drug traffi cking is also inextricably linked to violence. This year alone, DEA seized more than 2,700 fi rearms in connection with drug traffi cking investigations – a 30 percent increase since 2019. DEA remains steadfast in its mission to protect our communities, enforce U.S. drug laws and bring to justice the foreign and domestic criminals sourcing, producing and distributing illicit drugs, including counterfeit pills.

The legitimate prescription supply chain is not impacted. Anyone fi lling a prescription at a licensed pharmacy can be confi dent that the medications they receive are safe when taken as directed by a medical professional. The issuance of the Public Safety Alert coincides with the launch of DEA’s One Pill Can Kill Public Awareness Campaign to educate the public of the dangers of counterfeit pills. DEA urges all Americans to be vigilant and aware of the dangers of counterfeit pills and to take only medications prescribed by a medical professional and dispensed by a licensed pharmacist. DEA warns that pills purchased outside of a licensed pharmacy are illegal, dangerous and potentially lethal.

COVID RULES FOR OPERATION OF THE MASSACHUSETTS HOUSE (H 4121) House 131-28, approved am order that requires all representatives and House staff to be vaccinated in order to be allowed to work in the Statehouse; and to maintain full vaccination status against COVID-19 on an ongoing basis, as recommended by the CDC. A key section establishes an 8-member House Working Group on COVID-19 comprised of seven members appointed by the Democratic Speaker Ron Mariano and one member appointed by GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones. The working group has the power to establish many of the details of the vaccine mandate including establishing the deadline for people to be vaccinated and establishing a system for exempting from the vaccine anyone who chooses not to get vaccinated because of a qualifying disability or medical condition that contraindicates administration of the vaccine or because of a sincerely held religious belief. Other provisions require that all members and staff be granted paid time off to receive the vaccine; be required to follow any other rules established by the working group including wearing face masks, maintaining physical or social distancing or being tested for COVID-19; declare a state of emergency in the House and extend the House rule that allows members to vote and participate remotely in the House session until a majority of House members call for an end to the emergency. “Vaccination is the best tool for mitigating the risk of spreading COVID-19 and we need to know where we stand collectively as colleagues and as a House,” said Rep. Bill Driscoll (D-Milton), the House chair of the Committee on Covid-19 and Emergency Preparedness and Management. “It was essential we move forward with mandating a proof of vaccination in order to consistently convene in-person once again. Vaccines have proven to be the most eff ective tool in keeping us safe and, layered with other non-pharmaceutical measures, will guide us through to the other side of the Delta variant and aff ord us the opportunity to return in-person.” “The House took actions … that I could not support,” said Rep. Michael Soter (R-Bellingham). “The safety of all members and staff is of the utmost importance. However, I’m disappointed to see these crippling guidelines put in place. This is the people’s house, and we are one of the last entities in the state to discuss a reopening plan. We should be leading the charge in educating individuals on the benefits of the COVID-19 vaccination and not use mandates and threats. By doing so, we would increase participation and decrease hesitancy. My colleagues did not focus on uniting us. They focused on dividing us during a time where leaders should be doing better.” “The first step to reopening this building is a commitment to each other that we will do everything we can to keep our staff , our colleagues, our families and the public safe,” said Rep. Kate Hogan (D-Stow). “We know that vaccines are the most eff ective tool, by far, in keeping us safe by reducing the risks of transmission, hospitalization and death, particularly when used with masks and social distancing protocols. Therefore, the vaccine requirement is necessary to optimally provide for the continued safety of the House as a workplace for our members, offi - cers, staff , employees and eventually, the public.” “I was disappointed by the order … I truly want to get behind a good comprehensive reopening plan,” said Rep. Kimberly Ferguson (R-Holden). “So here’s the issue: What we have before us today unfortunately is a vague document with no detailed guidelines, no metrics, no clear parameters. What we have here is a document which gives the 8-member working group … the ultimate and fi nal say in all further actions, mandates and policies regarding COVID-19 in the House. No debate, no further votes, no further House discussions are needed. And that concerns me. How can we as a body vote today on something with such lack of clarity? How can we as a body vote on many policies we haven’t been able to see yet?” “These rules allow us to re-open safely and will provide our staff and fellow members with the comfort that we as a House are taking every step we can to ensure their health and safety.” Said Judiciary Committee House chair Rep. Michael Day (D-Stoneham). “As we are charged to do by our state constitution, we acted for the common good by adopting measures that balance our ability to continue to eff ectively conduct the business of the state with the need to get this pandemic under control.” (A “Yes” vote is for the vaccination requirement and the other rules. A “No” vote is against them.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes INCREASE HOURS THAT RETIRED PUBLIC EMPLOYEES CAN WORK (H 4007) House 158-0, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of a bill that would increase from 960 hours per year (18 hours per week) to 1,200 hours per year (23 hours per week) the maximum amount of time a public retiree collecting a pension is allowed work for the state or local government. “I support providing municipalities and state agencies with increased fl exibility to make appropriate staffi ng decisions,” said Gov. Baker in his veto message. “However, an increase of 240 more hours per year is a signifi cant policy change and moves the commonwealth and its municipalities closer to a place where employees continue to work near full-time while collecting a pension, without any corresponding changes to improve the current practice. I therefore proposed an amendment that would have increased the number of hours to 975, which more accurately refl ects half-time, thereby allowing some fl exibility to retired employees who are bumping against the current 960-hour limit. In addition, I proposed a waiver to the hour caps for personnel in positions where a critical shortage of qualifi ed personnel has been determined.” Supporters of the increase to 1,200 hours said that allowing retirees to work 23 hours per week is reasonable and will help many retirees who are struggling to make ends meet. They said it is unfair to punish retirees who would like to work more hours and provide their services to the state or local government. “As we continue to navigate this pandemic and its eff ects on our local and state government, it is imperative that we are able to utilize the knowledge and experience that many of our retirees possess,” said Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick). “This is important as many of these roles are evolving and allowing our retirees to assist in this process without hindering their pensions will help us turn the corner towards more effi cient government practices both during these challenging times and post-pandemic.” (A “Yes” vote is for the increase to 1,200 hours. A “No” vote is against it.) Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes REPEAL THE HARBOR TAX CREDIT AND MEDICAL DEVICE TAX CREDIT (H 4008) House 130-29, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of a bill that would repeal the current medical device tax credit and the harbor maintenance tax credit. Gov. Baker supported retaining both tax credits and said they encourage innovation and economic activity in the Bay State. “I see no reason to repeal the medical device user fee tax credit, as it is claimed annually by its intended benefi ciaries and supports medical device companies operating in the commonwealth,” said Baker in his veto message. “Similarly, I do not support the repeal of the harbor maintenance tax credit. It serves as a benefi t to shippers, importers and exporters who generate critical commercial activity in and around Massachusetts ports.” Supporters of repealing the tax credits said the Tax Expenditure Review Commission’s recent report made clear these two tax credits do not provide meaningful benefi t to the state and its residents. They noted that no other states off er these credits which are mostly used by large, profi table companies. (A “Yes” vote is for abolishing the tax credits. A “No” vote is for retaining them.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes REPEAL $5,000 ASSET LIMIT FOR SOME WELFARE RECIPIENTS (H 4012) House 130-29, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of a bill that would repeal a current law that prohibits anyone with assets of more than $5,000 from being eligible for Transitional Assistance to Families with Dependent Children (TAFDC)—a program that provides cash assistance and employment support to families with children and pregnant women with little or no income or assets. Assets include things like bank accounts, retirement accounts and cash. Some things do not count as an asset including the person’s house and one car. “TAFDC extends a vital lifeline to certain Massachusetts residents, but I disagree with eliminating the current asset test completely,” said Gov. Baker in his veto message. “I do support reforming the TAFDC asset rule to allow recipients who meet the asset test at the time of application to continue to accrue assets in excess of the current limit without risk of losing eligibility for TAFDC. I would welcome the opportunity to further develop this policy in partnership with the Legislature to ensure these benefi ts are available for the commonwealth’s families in highest need.” Supporters of repealing the $5,000 asset limit said it is unfair to deny families with children and pregnant women who may have as little as $6,000 to $10,000 in assets from benefi tting from the TAFDC program. Some said the asset limit encourages people to spend down their assets at a time when they should be preserving or increasing savings. “Some of those most aff ected by this pandemic and its aftereff ects are families with young children,” said Rep. David Linsky (D-Natick). “We need to work toward providing access to essential help and services for this vulnerable population. Eliminating this barrier is a start towards helping this high-risk population begin to get back on their feet rather than continuing to put themselves in debt.” (A “Yes” vote is for repealing the $5,000 asset limit. A “No” vote is against repealing it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes SEX EDUCATION (S 2534) Senate 38-1, approved and sent to the House legislation that would require that all public schools offering a comprehensive sexual health education curriculum “provide medically accurate, age-appropriate sexual health education.” Under current law, public schools are not required to teach sex education and the bill does not change that but rather mandates that any schools that choose to teach sex education are required to follow a curriculum, based on age, that includes human anatomy, reproduction and sexual development; the benefi ts of abstinence and delaying sexual activity; the importance of eff ectively using contraceptives to prevent unintended pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases, including HIV and AIDS; ways to eff ectively discuss safe sexual activity; relationship and communication skills to form healthy, respectful relationships free of violence, coBHRC | SEE PAGE 27

Page 26 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 “YOUR FINANCIAL FOCUS” JOSEPH D. CATALDO TRUSTS AS IRA BENEFICIARIES efi ciaries are not identifi ed, the Trust must take required minimum distributions over a fi veyear period. Upon the death of the IRA Trusts can be named as a benefi ciary of an IRA account if the IRA account owner wishes for there to be control over required minimum distributions upon the original IRA owner’s death. If the IRA account owner want the funds to go to a minor child, for example, an outright distribution to the child would not be possible unless guardianship proceedings are commenced. The Trust allows the IRA account owner to provide for the required minimum distributions to be paid to the Trust over a 10year period so long as the Trust is a see-through Trust, meaning the Trust benefi ciaries are identifi ed. Under the Secure Act, only eligible benefi ciaries can stretch the IRA over his or her life expectancy. Ineligible beneficiaries must stretch out the IRA over a 10-year period. If the Trust is not a see-through Trust and the benAndrea Scarinci owner, the IRA account becomes a separate asset of the Trust. Required minimum distributions are then reportable by the Trust as income in the year received. If there is a distribution to a particular benefi ciary of the Trust out of the separate IRA account, that benefi ciary will pay the tax on that distribution. A Schedule K-1 form would be given to the benefi ciary in order to him or her to fi le an individual income tax return for that particular calendar year. If no distributions are made by the Trustee to any benefi ciary after having received a taxable required minimum distribution, then the Trust itself would pay the tax. An IRA owner may wish to name a Trust as the benefi ciary if a second marriage is involved and he or she wishes to provide for the spouse to receive Trust distributions over his or her lifetime with any remaining IRA monies in the Trust to be held for the benefi t of children of a previous marriage. If the Trust was a conduit Trust with mandatory annual or more frequent distributions, the surviving spouse OBITUARIES Of Wakefi eld, formerly of Everett, entered into eternal rest on Tuesday morning, September 28, 2021 in the Advinia Care in Wilmington after being in failing health. He was 88 years old. Born in Crecchio, Italy, Andrea lived in Everett for many years before taking residence with his daughter, Sue and Nicolo. He worked as a laborer retiring from Local 22. Beloved husband of the late Ida (Antonelli). Dear and devoted father of Assunta Bello and her husband, Nicolo of Wakefi eld. Brother of Armando, Maria Tiberi and the late Vincenzo all of Italy.

Leaving the entire IRA account to the second spouse might result in no monies ever being distributed to children of the fi rst marriage for a variety of reasons. If a Trust is the benefi ciary of the IRA account, the terms of the Trust itself will dictate when the benefi ciaries of the Trust will be entitled to distributions. This prevents spendthrift benefi ciaries from squandering the IRA monies. Also, there would most likely be more protection of the IRA monies if owned by the Trust as a result of spendthrift provisions contained in the document. Inherited IRA accounts do not off er the same level of asset protection of IRA accounts created and owned by the original account owner. The distributions to the Trust under a 10-year payout requirement, for example, does not mean the Trustee is going to make distributions to the benefi ciaries over that 10-year period. It could be a much longer period of time due to the terms of the Trust. As always, the Trustee will have to take tax planning issues into consideration. BY JIM MILLER Simple and Inexpensive Final Farewells Dear Savvy Senior, My husband and I are looking for the simplest and least expensive way to dispose of our bodies when we die. We hate the idea of wasting a lot of money on high-priced funerals and would like some advice on some simple and cheap send-off s. Simple Seniors Dear Simple, With the average cost of a full-service funeral running around $11,000 today, many people are seeking simple ways to make their fi nal farewell more aff ordable. Depending on how you want to go, here are several low-cost options to consider. Direct Cremation If you and your husband are interested in cremation, a direct cremation is the simplest and least expensive way to go. It includes picking up the body, completing and fi ling the necessary paperwork, the cremation itself and returning the cremated remains to the family. There’s no embalming, formal viewing or casket. A simple cardboard box called an “alternative container” is used to hold the body. Depending on where you live and the funeral home you choose, the average cost for a direct cremation runs between $1,000 and $3,000. If you want additional services beyond what a direct cremation off ers, ask the funeral home for an itemized price list that covers the other services cost, so you know exactly what you’re getting. All providers are required by law to provide this. To locate nearby funeral homes, look in your local yellow pages, or Google “cremation” or “funeral” followed by your city and state. You can also get good information online at Parting.com, which lets you compare prices from funeral providers in your area based on what you want. Immediate or Direct Burial If you’re interested in being buried, an immediate/direct burial is the most basic and low-cost option. With an immediate burial, your body would be buried in a simple container shortly after death, skipping the embalming, viewing and use of the funeral facilities. If your family wants a memorial service, they can have it at the graveside at your place of worship or at home without the body. These services usually cost between $1,800 and $3,500, not counting cemetery charges, which can run you an additional $1,000 to $3,000. All funeral homes off er direct burial. Green Burial An eco-friendly green burial is another aff ordable way to go that costs anywhere from $1,000 to $4,000 depending on the provider. With a green cemetery burial, the body is buried in a biodegradable coffi n or just wrapped in a shroud, without embalming chemicals or a burial vault. The Green Burial Council (GreenBurialCouncil.org, 888966-3330) has a state listing of cemetery operators who accommodate green burials, as well as funeral professionals who provide the services. Anatomical Donation If you’d like to eliminate your cremation/burial costs all together, as well as help advance medical research, you and your husband should consider donating your bodies to science. This option won’t cost you a cent, however, some programs may charge a small fee to transport your body to their facility. After using your body for medical research projects, anatomy lessons and surgical practice, your remains will be cremated and your ashes will be buried or scattered in a local cemetery or returned to your family, usually within a year. To locate accredited university medical school body donation programs in your state, see the University of Florida’s U.S. program directory at Anatbd. acb.med.ufl .edu/usprograms, or call the whole-body donation referral service during business hours at 800-727-0700.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 27 BHRC | FROM PAGE 25 ercion and intimidation; and information about gender identity and sexual orientation for all students, including recognition that people have diff erent sexual orientations, gender identities and gender expressions. The measure also requires any school off ering sex education to notify parents about the school’s sex education curriculum and gives parents the right to withdraw a student from the instruction. Another provision creates a process for parents to inspect the program instruction materials before the start of the course. Supporters said that under the bill, local cities and towns still have the authority and power to decide whether sex education is taught in their schools. They said the measure will ensure that schools that choose to teach sex education will have a framework to follow. They noted the bill will prepare students to make healthy decisions and will reduce teen pregnancy and sexually transmitted diseases. “I am very proud that the Massachusetts Senate has once again reaffirmed our commitment to this commonsense healthy policy that will ensure our youth have the tools needed to protect their health and form respectful relationships,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) “This legislation makes it clear that sex education in the commonwealth must be inclusive for all students and emphasize the importance and necessity of consent. I would like to thank and congratulate the many advocates who have partnered with us on this legislation and worked tirelessly to ensure Massachusetts youth have the information they need to build the bright futures they deserve—without shame or judgement.” “This is a highly controversial bill, as demonstrated by the fact that it has failed to pass for multiple sessions,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), the only senator who voted against the measure. “If this legislation is to pass into law, it would be a direct usurpation of the local school district’s decision-making abilities. Each community has diff erent needs based on their specific demographics, which is why they should have the ability to decide their curriculum. By mandating a statewide sex education curriculum, you directly take away the ability of a community to decide how sensitive topics like sex education are taught.” “It is quite troubling that our elected offi cials think taking local control away from school districts and parents regarding sex ed curriculum is a good idea,” said Andrew Beckwith, executive director of the Massachusetts Family Institute. “And even worse is the type of graphic content they want to push on students in the curriculum they are sanctioning. In what reality does normalizing high risk sexual activity like anal and oral sex for teens or teaching young vulnerable girls how to obtain abortions without their parents’ knowledge or consent result in healthy youth?” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes CHANGE GENDER ON BIRTH CERTIFICATES AND MORE (S 2533) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a bill that would allow people to change their gender on their birth certifi cate, driver’s license, learner’s permit, identifi cation card or liquor purchase identification card, including to a non-binary option other than male or female. The possible designations include “female,” “male” or “X” which would indicate that the person is another gender or an undesignated gender. The gender can only be changed by an adult, an emancipated minor or the parent or guardian of a minor. No documentation is required BHRC | SEE PAGE 29

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 1, 2021 Page 29 Mystic Watershed communities secure $3.6M in climate resilience funding F ollowing the release of $20 million in state FY2022 MVP Grants, the Mystic River Watershed Association announced that Resilient Mystic Collaborative (RMC) cities and towns had secured a total of $2.6 million in state funding to help prepare for extreme weather. Of these funds, $1.1 million were grants for multi-community projects, and $1.5 million went to individual municipalities. In addition, the Barr Foundation awarded the RMC a two-year, $950,000 renewal grant, bringing the total in new climate resilience funding to over $3.6 million.

The Legislature must ensure that all of our constituents have access to IDs with nonbinary gender markers as beautifully diverse as they are.” (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 WATERSHED | SEE PAGE 30 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.

"This $716,500 MVP grant couldn't have come at a better time.
