At the time, Matthew Philbin and Andrew Philbin, Sr. owned and operated several boarding houses that were rife with health and safety violations. Therefore, DeMaria voted time and again not to renew their licenses. His repeated dissenting votes infuriated the Philbins, thus beginning their quest for vengeance. In 2017, the Philbins purchased the Leader Herald and enlisted Joshua Resnek to publish stories designed to destroy DeMaria’s personal and professional reputations. In the years that followed, Lipchitz said, Resnek published stories falsely accusing DeMaria of taking bribes and being involved in a host of other criminal activities. On September 15 of this year, Resnek published a story titled “Revelations we cannot quite believe about the mayor...but they are all true.” The article was featured in Resnek’s “Eye on Everett,” a column that consists of his weekly conversations with DeMaria’s “Blue Suit.” This particular column focused E Friday, October 15, 2021 Mayor releases details of lawsuit against Leader Herald Fed up with years of malicious attacks Mayor Carlo DeMaria has filed a lawsuit against the Everett Leader Herald, which, since 2017, has targeted him with a myriad of defamatory stories. (Advocate File Photo) on a sexual assault grievance that a former employee filed against DeMaria several years ago. “The article intentionally omitted well-published information that the Chelsea District Court found there was no probable cause for the Complaint, dismissing it in its entirety,” said Lipchitz. Debacle of 43 Corey Street The Complaint also describes how City Clerk Sergio Cornelio used the Leader Herald to attack DeMaria regarding the real estate transaction involving 43 Corey St. According to Lipchitz, in May 2019, DeMaria was approached by Zachary Stratis, who was looking to sell the parcel. DeMaria then invited Cornelio to join him in purchasing the property and work in concert to convert the home into a multifamily development. On August 21, 2019, DeMaria and Cornelio purchased the property from Stratis for $900,000. Lipchitz said that for fi nancing purposes the property was purchased in Cornelio’s name. However, DeMaria and Cornelio remained partners in the venture. Because he is an elected offi - cial, DeMaria contacted KP Law to ensure that there would be no LAWSUIT | SEE PAGE 2

On August 20, 2020, Attorney Brian Riley gave his opinion. “It would not violate Chapter 268A for you to acquire an interest in this parcel or to file with a city board or official in your own name to request a permit. In the event that you acquire an interest in the property under a different entity, however, you would need to have an attorney or other representative handle any such application,” he said. “You would also be prohibited from taking any action in your capacity as mayor that would foreseeably affect your financial interest in the parcel.” Therefore, Riley suggested filing a Disclosure of Appearance of Conflict of Interest. DeMaria filed that document with the City Clerk’s Office on September 23, 2020. “Attorney Riley’s opinion, the State Ethics Commission’s advisory opinion and Mr. DeMaria’s disclosure are all public records and could have been reviewed by the Leader Herald Defendants prior to publishing the articles,” said Lipchitz. “They intentionally chose not to review these filings.” On April 14 of this year, Cornelio and DeMaria sold the Corey Street property for $1.3 million LAWSUIT | SEE PAGE 4


Page 4 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2021 Over 50 Percent of MVRCS Seniors Earn Adams Scholarship M ALDEN —Thirty-three members of My stic Valley Regional Charter School’s Class of 2022 received the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship; it was announced recently by the Massachusetts Department of Elementary and Secondary Education. The 33 students represents over half of MVRCS’ total graduating class, making the school one of a select few throughout the Commonwealth in which a majority of its graduating seniors received the scholarship award. The scholarship entitles the graduate to four years of tuition assistance at any Massachusetts state college or university. “The Adams Scholarship is the culmination of many years of hard work not only on behalf of these young men and women but by our faculty, staff and administrators,” Director/Superintendent Alex Dan said. “We are so proud of each and every one of the members of the Class of 2022 as they join a long list of MVRCS alumni to achieve the distinction.” Because only 25 percent of any given district’s students are eligible for the John and Abigail Adams Scholarship (each city is capped at 25% regardless of where those students attend school), the fact that 54 percent of MVRCS’ Class of 2022 earned this designation firmly proves that the school delivers a far more rigorous education when compared to its sending districts. “This is a great proverbial feather in the caps of over half of the class of 2022,” Matthew Stone, MVRCS’ AssisLAWSUIT | FROM PAGE 2 to 43 Corey Street Everett LLC. “Under the parties’ agreement, Mr. DeMaria [would receive] $96,000 and Mr. Cornelio [would receive] approximately $316,000, an amount which [would reimburse] him for his carrying costs and included his share of the profi t,” said Lipchitz. In the months that followed, Lipchitz said, Cornelio allegedly informed Resnek that he was pressured by DeMaria to give him $96,000 from the sale of 43 Corey St. “Mr. Cornelio knew full well that this was a real estate opportunity founded by Mr. DeMaria, who invited Mr. Cornelio to participate,” said Lipchitz. However, on September 8, Resnek published a front page story titled: “$96,000 Forced Payment to Mayor by City Clerk Raises Questions About Extortion Plot.” This was followed by “The 96,000 tant Director said. “The accomplishment serves as validation when it comes to our academic approach not only in our High School building but on our Lower School campus.” Since 1998, MVRCS has been delivering a world-class education characterized by a wellDisgrace” on September 10 and “Mayor moves to oust Cornelio: After taking 96k from city clerk in real estate deal” on September 15. “It appears that Mr. Cornelio fabricated a story that Mr. DeMaria extorted and threatened him, peddling the concocted story to the Everett Leader Herald,” said Lipchitz, adding that these stories were published with “actual malice.” The September 15 story was published six days prior to the Primary Election, in which DeMaria was facing two challengers. “In addition to being a complete fabrication, these false assertions conveyed that Mr. DeMaria had purportedly engaged in criminal conduct by extorting another city offi cial — a devastating assertion to be made in advance of an election,” said Lipchitz. “The Leader Herald Defendants relied solely and exclusively on the purported statements mannered, disciplined and structured academic climate. The school is stepped in core virtues and fundamental ideals of our American Culture which are embodied in both the Declaration of Independence and Constitution. SCHOLARSHIP | SEE PAGE 8 that they attributed to Mr. Cornelio precisely because they were unconcerned with the truth of their articles.” According to Lipchitz, Cornelio told Resnek that unless the $96,000 payment was made, DeMaria would jeopardize the future of Cornelio’s career and slash the City Clerk’s Offi ce budget. “Mr. Cornelio knew full well that there was no extortion and that the $96,000 was simply Mr. DeMaria’s interest in the land sale that they had agreed,” said Lipchitz. “Under Everett’s Charter, it is the City Council — not the mayor — that has ‘charge and control over the Offi ce of City Clerk.’ As a result, Mr. DeMaria has no ability to fi re the clerk or reduce his salary.” In addition to the Leader Herald, Resnek, Cornelio and the Philbins are listed as defendants.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2021 Page 5 City Council approves $1.5M for traffic calming measures T By Christopher Roberson he City Council, during its October 12 meeting, voted unanimously to invest $1.5 million in the ongoing effort to eliminate speeding in the city. Within the total figure, $1.3 million will be used for raised crosswalks with the remaining $200,000 being used for temporary speed bumps and radar speed read-back signs. Transportation Planner Jay Monty said the work would be done during the next two years. Councillor-at-Large John Hanlon asked if there is a way to make the speed bumps smoother. “If you’re going the wrong speed, you’re going to wind up on Jupiter,” he said. However, Monty said the sharp incline and decline is necessary to have the desired effect. “To control vehicle speeds, you have to make it really uncomfortable,” he said, adding that Everett’s construction standards for speed bumps were modeled after those used in Cambridge. Councillor-at-Large Richard Dell Isola said a raised crosswalk is needed at the intersection of Griswold and Woodlawn Streets. “We did put speed traps out there but they’re not working,” he said. In response, Monty said the location of storm drains is critical when installing speed bumps. “When you build one of these things, you’re basically putting a dam in the middle of the road,” he said. Ward 2 Councillor Stephanie Martins asked if a speed bump could be installed in front of Messenger Insurance on BroadIn recognition of their ongoing efforts to rescue abandoned or abused animals, the City Council, during its October 12 meeting, awarded citations to Melissa Doherty-Guevin, owner of The Dogmother, Lisa Cutting, owner of Oceanview Kennel, Animal Rescue volunteer Carole Pollastrone and Laurie Stathopoulos, owner of Salem Saves Animals.

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2021 We’re Just Getting Started Being a City Councillor has taught me that nothing is accomplished alone and it takes teamwork to get the job done. Since I was first elected, I have worked tirelessly to build the relationships it takes to be an effective public servant. I have worked even harder to earn your trust and build your confidence by ensuring your needs continue to be met by City Hall in an efficient manner and that your voice continues to be heard. I’m still as excited to do this job as I was on the day I was first elected. ~ LETTERS TO THE EDITOR ~ As our City emerges from the In Everett, people expect one thing from their elected officials; results. As your city councilor, I have ensured that your tax dollars continue to be spent wisely on public safety resources, the education of our students, infrastructure improvements and the beautification of our city. During the COVID-19 Pandemic, I worked closely with and supported the DeMaria Administration’s efforts to distribute masks, food, financial assistance, testing and vaccines to residents that were in need. COVID-19 Pandemic, the future is bright. We are in a position that other cities can only envy, as we have the means to transform formerly blighted and contaminated industrial sites into major new employers for our residents. For the first time in generations, we have access to waterfront parks and open spaces that give the city’s children more room to play and grow up healthy. This will all continue to happen with private investment in our community and not your local tax dollars. Everett’s best years are undoubtedly ahead of us. Look around and you will see positive change everywhere. Confidence in our community is high. People believe in Everett. We must work together to make sure that we maximize all of this positive growth while protecting and improving our quality of life. The decisions we make today will shape our city for generations to come and we must work closely together to seize every opportunity for positive action. While we are an exceptional city, we face some of the same problems that every major city across the country faces, like making sure that our residents can afford to live here and that our families struggling with the health problem of addiction can access the resources and support they need. We must continue to work together on these challenges that impact so many of our residents, while recognizing what a privilege it is to perhaps be able to truly help with the issues that touch people’s lives. Our work in city government is not about any one of us, it’s about all of us and the community we live in. By working as a team, we have positively impacted the lives of the people of Everett. Serving on the Everett City Council has been a tremendous honor and I look forward to continuing serving the residents of Ward Three. On Tuesday, November 2, I humbly ask for your vote so I can continue to serve the City I love. Sincerely, Anthony DiPierro Ward 3 Councillor In Support of Mayor DeMaria Dear Editor: I am writing to you about the very important choice we have to make in the upcoming election on November 2. This is the first time I have written a letter to the editor in support of a candidate. This seems like an important time to speak up. We have two candidates running for. Mayor, I feel Mayor Carlo DeMaria has the edge because of his networking capabilities and his “can do” approach. I have been a resident in Everett since 1958, I went to grammar school and high school in Everett. I worked in Everett for 44 years. Over the years, I have seen Mayor DeMaria take on community tasks that seemed difficult to accomplish, but he got them done. He is an example of what most politicians are not – responsive, honest, respectful and communicative. He cares about the Everett Community, the students and SCHOLARSHIP | FROM PAGE 4 Class of 2020 John and Abigail Adams Scholarship Recipients: Everett Darnelle Felisier Carissa Loesch Uyen Nguyen Nicholas Prezioso Ayman Ramzy the seniors.

I know several people who drive through Melrose, Malden and other communities and have commented how beautiful Everett is. Why?…because Mayor DeMaria takes pride in this city. I have never seen Mayor DeMaria take on anything that did not get done successfully, nor have I ever seen him approach a task without an enormous amount of confidence and enthusiasm. I am a supporter of his candidacy for reelection to be the Mayor of this fine city and you could only benefit by being a supporter as well. For these reasons, I am urging you to vote for reelection for Mayor Carlo DeMaria when you visit the ballot box. I am proud to endorse him for Mayor on November 2nd.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2021 Page 9 Mass. Firefi ghting Academy marks 50th anniversary with three graduations Five from Everett graduate from Stow Firefi ghting Academy S TOW, SPRINGFIELD, and BRIDGEWATER – State Fire Marshal Peter J. Ostroskey and Massachusetts Firefighting Academy (MFA) leadership observed the 50th anniversary of the MFA last week as they presented certifi cates of completion to 60 local fi refi ghters, including fi ve from Everett, who graduated at the Academy’s campuses in Stow, Springfi eld and Bridgewater. The ceremonies are posted to the Department of Fire Services’ YouTube channel. Established by an act of the Legislature on Oct. 7, 1971, the MFA grew out of what had been known as the Central Massachusetts Fire Training Academy. It currently provides recruit and in-service training at three separate campuses and has graduated more than 13,000 recruit, call and volunteer fi refi ghters in more than 420 classes. “We take them for granted today, but uniform standards for fi re service training were still a new idea 50 years ago,” said State Fire Marshal Ostroskey. “From humble beginnings at a single location, we now have three operational campuses across the state, teaching strategies and tactics that have continued to evolve and improve during fi ve decades of professional instruction.” Stow: 23 graduates from 12 fi re departments The recruits of MFA Class #295 graduated at the Stow campus and represent the fi re departments of Burlington, Everett, Gloucester, Haverhill, Lawrence, Milford, Norwell, Stoughton, Wakefi eld, Watertown, Wilmington and Wrentham. The Stow campus was the MFA’s fi rst location and serves as the Department of Fire Services’ primary headquarters. The five Everett graduates were Tori Lee Cyrus, Dylan D’Ambrosio, Jesse King, Brian Ramunno and Ian Tweeddale. Basic fi refi ghter skills Students receive classroom training in all basic firefighter skills. They practice fi rst under non-fire conditions and then during controlled fire conditions. To graduate, students must demonstrate profi ciency in life safety, search and rescue, ladder operations, water supply, pump operation, and fi re attack. Fire attack operations range from mailbox fi res to multiple-fl oor or multiple-room structural fi res. Upon successful completion of the Recruit Program, all students have met the national standards of National Fire Protection Association 1001 and are certifi ed to the level of Firefi ghter I and II – and Hazardous Materials First Responder Operational Level – by the Massachusetts Fire Training Council, which is accredited by the National Board on Fire Service Professional Qualifi cations.

Butler’s son, Everett Police Sgt. David Butler, Jr., was able to contact Dennett’s great-granddaughter and great-greatgrandson to tell them about the dedication. Both the Butler and Dennett families were present during the ceremony.

When the Civil War broke out in April 1861, he enlisted in the Union Army at the age of 17. As a solider in the 11th Massachusetts Infantry Regiment, Dennett fought in more than 20 battles, including Bull Run, Williamsburg and Yorktown. After the war, Dennett married Clara Fulsom on October 19, 1867, and moved to Second Street in Everett. He then joined the Fire Department as an engineer in 1874. DeMaria said that on the morning of December 1, 1896, Dennett was responding to a call when his fire engine was struck by a train, killing him instantly. He was 52 years old. “This gentleman lost his life while trying to save the lives of others,” said DeMaria. “For this, Boardman Dennett will always be remembered as a true hero in our city.” Mary Butler, widow of the late Fire Chief David Butler (center), is pictured with her family during the dedication of the Central Fire Station on October 9.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 15, 2021 Page 11 Almeida-Barros brings $35K for homeless students’ housing Marcony Almeida-Barros School Committee Member W ard 5 School Committee Member Marcony Almeida-Barros announced $35,000 in new funding to assist the Everett Public Schools (EPS) homeless students this school year. The money will help reduce truancy, assist with food and case management and improve graduation rates, as part of the EPS Student Homeless Assistance Program initiated by Almeida-Barros. To date, this oneof-a-kind program in a public high school has brought nearly $100,000 in funding to EPS since its inception. Part of this year’s subsidy was possible thanks to the continued assistance of the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance (MHSA), which has heard Marcony’s call since he joined the School Committee. State Senator Sal DiDomenico also assisted to secure additional funding for this program through the state budget this year. “Being able to address housing stability for our most vulnerable students has been a top priority of mine,” said Almeida-Barros. The EPS Student Homeless Assistance Program was initiated in 2018 as a pilot program. When Almeida-Barros heard about the homeless student population, he invited the MHSA to visit Everett High School, and initially won a $30,000 grant to help homeless students and their families in crisis to cover emergency expenses for food and housing. In the program’s fi rst year, 11 students received assistance with rent, food and case management through Youth Harbors, a local organization working with students in housing crisis to improve absenteeism, school grades and graduation rates. The program is administered by the Everett High School Guidance Department and Youth Harbors. “One of the proudest moments I’ve experienced was when I attended the special graduation ceremony at Youth Harbors, whose assistance to several EHS students helped them overcome diffi cult barriers to graduate,” said Almeida-Barros. “It proved that investing in our kids by providing housing stability will give them a chance to succeed.” LIKE US ON FACEBOOK ADVOCATE NEWSPAPER FACEBOOK.COM/ADVOCATE.NEWS.MA

For Everett, receiver Cam MoBy Jason Mazzilli T he way it has gone so far this year, it has been either a dominating offense, or a suffocating defense — or both— that have keyed Everett High football wins. On their way to a 4-0 season start, the latest win a 44-0 demolition of Lynn Classical Friday night, Everett unveiled a third dimension of excellence, an enterprising special teams unit. Everett now faces off against fellow GBL unbeaten Revere (4-0 GBL, 4-1 overall) tonight in an early season league showdown at Revere's Della Russo Stadium at 6:00 p.m. The game got off to a tough start for the Rams, as they kicked off to Everett's Pedro Rodrigues and he sprinted for a 70-yard touchdown to open the game. It went from bad to worse for Classical, which fumbled away the ensuing kickoff, leading to a four-play scoring drive, finished off by a 30-yard touchdown run from JC Clerveaux. The Rams then went three plays and a punt and Everett put together another quick scoring drive capped by a 21-yard score from speedy Cam Mohamed. Before the fans had even fully arrived, Classical was staring at a 20-0 deficit. "You can't give a team that good any extra opportunities, and we gave them a bunch," Classical head coach Brian Vaughan said in an online report. Everett kept the pedal to the metal, with 36-yard touchdown pass from quarterback Kamarri Ellerbe to Mohamed, followed by a 29-yard touchdown run from Syeed Gibbs gave the Crimson Tide a 37-0 lead at the half. Special teams reared up again when defensive lineman Jayden Biggi blocked a punt, scooped and scored for a touchdown to make it 44-0 early in the third quarter. The third and fourth quarters ticked away quickly and the 44-0 final stood up. Coach Vaughan had plenty of praise for Everett in an online report. "They're bigger, stronger and faster than most teams in the state, and they showed it. It was a tough go for us, but I was hamed led the way with 83 yards from scrimmage and two touchdowns. Leading rusher Jayden Clerveaux had 65 yards on the ground, while receiver Syeed Gibbs rushed for 29 yards and a touchdown.

Everett boys’ soccer registered a pair of valuable wins over Greater Boston League leader Medford and third-place holder Malden to soar within a point of the top spot in the league standings. Everett claimed a 2-2 tie with Medford to improve to 7-1-2 in the GBL. Senior Luan Cruz scored both goals for the Tide, as Everett rallied back from 2-0 and 2-1 deficits. ~ POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT ~ Samantha Hurley running for Ward 3 School Committee seat Everett also earned a 3-1 win over Malden in recent games. Dan Cadet was the #1 star for the Tide, scoring two goals for Everett while Gui Meireles added a single goal. Aman Chetri scored the lone goal for Malden. Malden (5-3-5 overall) got a heartbreaking tie with nonleaguer Winthrop on Saturday at home, as the visiting Viking scored the game-tying goal with only 2 seconds left to play. Malden needs to go at least 2-2-1 or 3-2 in its last five games to get a postseason berth in the MIAA Division 1 State Boys Soccer Tournament. Everett Girls Soccer knocks off Malden, 2-1 The Everett High girls soccer team topped Malden, 2-1 and fell to Medford, 3-2 in the past week of games. Against Medford, sophomore captain Layla Betancur-Cardona and freshman Yelsa Garcia scored goals for the Crimson Tide. Everett girls took a 2-1 victory over Malden. Garcia supplied the offense for the Crimson Tide, scoring twice for Everett, for all the offense. Malden High girls’ volleyball in comeback win over Revere, 3-2 Malden High girls’ volleyball nears tourney spot with comeback win over Revere, 3-2 It looked bleak for Malden girls’ volleyball for a good part of the night Wednesday, but it sure got a lot brighter in a hurry. Trailing 2-1 in sets, dropping both by the two-point minimum, Malden fought back and took another very close decision to win the fourth set and tie the match at 2-2. Malden kept on task in the fifth and deciding set, winning by a 15-11 margin to win the match. Revere fell to 8-9 overall with the loss while Malden improved to 8-4 with the win. Malden was especially excited since they were billing the game as a fundraiser "Pink Out" game to further Breast Cancer Research.

HENS (H 4194) House 156-1, approved a bill that would make changes and put Massachusetts in line with other larger egg-producing states that have put in place standards for hen confinement. In 2016, Massachusetts voters overwhelmingly passed Question 3 to prevent cruelty to farm animals. At the time it was the strongest law for farm animals in history but since then leading retailers, producers and other states mandated even stronger standards in the shift to cage-free conditions for hens. Supporters said the bill will ensure the Bay State adapts to the new science unavailable in 2016. “The updates in today’s bill are consistent with the goals of the law passed in 2016 and in certain cases actually strengthen animal protections,” said Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston). “This legislation is time sensitive. Without these updates, we know that many egg producers both inside and outside of Massachusetts who have upgraded their facilities to the emerging national standards won’t be able to provide eggs to our residents as early as the first of the year. This is particularly concerning because we know that many families, particularly those experiencing food insecurity, rely on eggs as an essential, lowcost source of protein.” Rep. Susannah Whipps (I-Athol), the only representative to vote against the bill, did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. The Senate approved a different version of the bill in June. The House version now goes back to the Senate for consideration. “Massachusetts is now an outlier, which could threaten our supply of eggs,” said Senate sponsor Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester). “Fortunately, the egg producers and animal welfare groups have come together to agree on this legislation, ensuring safe and humane conditions for egg-laying hens and affordable eggs for Massachusetts consumers.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes FREE SCHOOL BREAKFAST AND LUNCH (H 3999) House 157-0, Senate on a voice vote without a roll call, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a bill that would require schools in which a majority of students come from low-income families to provide universal free breakfast and lunch to all students. The program would be paid for by the federal government. The legislation also abolishes policies which can shame students for having unpaid school meal debt. It prohibits schools from publicly identifying a student who has a meal debt; disposing of an already served meal because of the student’s lack of funds to pay for the meal or because of unresolved meal debt; denying a student a meal as a form of behavioral discipline or punishment; prohibiting a student or a sibling of a student from attending or participating in extracurricular activities, field trips or school events and from receiving grades, official transcripts, report cards or from graduating or attending graduation events solely because of unresolved meal debt. “With this bill, we will feed more kids, eliminate meal debt shaming and stigma and maximize federal resources for schools across Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen the commonwealth,” said co-sponsor Rep. Andy Vargas (D-Haverhill). “With the historically high percentage of economically disadvantaged students across the state, it makes sense to lock in this data now, which the federal government recognizes for at least the next four years.” The practice of identifying and shaming children and families who are unable to afford food is archaic and must end immediately,” said co-sponsor Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington). “This legislation is in line with the commonwealth’s values of supporting our most vulnerable citizens.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes ELECTION LAW CHANGES (S 2545) Senate 36-3, approved and sent to the House a bill making permanent the mail-in and early voting options used in Massachusetts in 2020. Other provisions include same-day voter registration; increased ballot access for service members serving overseas; ensuring that individuals who are incarcerated who are currently eligible to vote are provided with voting information and materials to exercise their right to vote and that individuals who are incarcerated but prohibited from voting are notified of their right to vote upon release and given the opportunity fill out a voter registration form; allowing U.S. service members and other citizens residing overseas to cast their votes electronically; and requiring the secretary of state to conduct a comprehensive public awareness campaign to publicize the new voting and registration options. “I am incredibly proud of the Senate’s work on the [bill] which will not only protect but expand voting access in the commonwealth,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “The provisions contained within this bill, including same-day voter registration, early voting and permanent vote-by-mail will make it much easier to vote in Massachusetts—which is especially important for those individuals and communities that have struggled to vote or who have been disenfranchised in the past. I am excited to see this bill signed into law so that all of our citizens will have expanded access to voting, our most sacred right as Americans.” “This bill was too far reaching in the election policies it sets out to accomplish,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), one of the three senators who voted against the bill. “Measures like universal mail-in ballots were specifically intended to keep people safe during the pandemic, but the costs levied by making this measure permanent would be too costly for small municipalities like some that I represent. I am not sure at this point that we have the safeguards in place to ensure confidence in our electoral system.

Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “I am proud of the collective effort of this body to improve the bill through the amendment process to ensure safe and secure access to the ballot box.” “Democrats in the State Senate are quick to rush through a very controversial election bill without bi-partisan support because many of their members are either seeking higher office or considering higher office,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “They want this to help them in Democratic primaries. There is no good reason why something this momentous and controversial needs to be rushed without support from both parties and without buy-in from groups with differing ideological viewpoints.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.

She was 82 years of age. Born in Williamstown County Galway Ireland, she is the daughter of the late Thomas and Ellen (Reilly) Mylott. Mary grew up in Ireland and attended school there.

Mary liked to remain active and devoted her time to her family, especially her grandchildren.

The amendment requires municipalities with more than 25,000 voters to provide one drop box per 25,000 voters and requires the boxes to be in a public location that is accessible to voters for at least 12 hours per day. “During the 2020 election, we witnessed how the expanded use of ballot drop boxes provided a safe, convenient and accessible way of voting amid a global pandemic,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “However, in some of our largest cities and smaller towns, drop boxes were not a viable voting option because they weren’t accessible, weren’t open or didn’t even exist. We can fix that problem setting baseline standards for municipal ballot drop box accessibility.” “Mandating that municipalities maintain one ballot drop box per 25,000 residents would create substantial new costs and obligations,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton).“Not only would municipalities have to purchase and deploy the drop box, they would have to devote staff time to the periodic collection of ballots and to collecting ballots on Election Day when they are already stretched thin and concerned about the work they have to do. (A “Yes” vote is for the ballot drop box requirements. A “No” vote is against them.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No PERMANENT VOTING BY MAIL OPTION (S 2545) Senate 7-31, rejected an amendment that would allow voters to choose to become a permanent voter by mail for all future elections, a temporary voter by mail for all elections in a calendar year or a temporary voter by mail for one specific election. The measure automatically enrolls voters who voted by mail in the 2020 state primary and general election as permanent mail voters. Voters would also have the option to change their status at any time. Sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch said that the state does not require voters to reregister every year and should not require voters to sign up for various voting methods each year. “By allowing voters to choose automatic delivery of a ballot in every election, we tear down unnecessary barriers to exercising the right to vote,” said Rausch. “Every extra step we add to the process of voting—including forcing people to opt into vote by mail annually— places another burden on the voter in their exercising of this fundamental right. Elections must be accessible for all voters, plain and simple. Expanding voting options to include a permanent vote by mail status is one way we can empower voters to exercise their fundamental right to vote.” “We do feel that it is important that each voter opt in to vote by mail on a regular basis is going to count for any address change, etc.,” said Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover). “People do move and this amendment would have ballots sent to their former address in perpetuity.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No WORKERS GET PAID TIME OFF TO VOTE (S 2545) Senate 12-26, rejected an amendment that would require all employers to give each worker two hours of paid time off per election to vote. The employee could use that two hours to vote early in-person, vote by mail or vote on Election Day. The amendment would replace a current law that is narrower and requires the worker to apply for a leave of absence in order to vote and only allows the worker to vote during the two hours after the polls open on Election Day. “Workers should not have to choose between earning a paycheck and exercising their fundamental right to vote,” said sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch. “Where Massachusetts should be a leader in the nation on the issue of granting paid time off to head to the polls, we are notably far behind. Twenty-three other states and the District of Columbia already enacted paid time off for voting, and our commonwealths’ citizens deserve the same.” “I think if we really want to have a discussion about how we really want to help people that are working two, three, four jobs, we should have that discussion,” said Sen. Barry Finegold. “But I don’t think this [amendment] solves that. There is a problem out there, that we did not have enough people in lower social economic communities take advantage of vote by mail, because they don’t trust the post office and there’s a lot of misconceptions up there. That is something I believe we need to work on, but I don’t think this is going to be the solution to get people from lower social economic communities to come out to vote even more.

A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico No PUBLIC AWARENESS CAMPAIGN (S 2545) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment that would require the secretary of state, via digital and social media and other means, to conduct “a linguistically diverse and culturally competent public awareness campaign” to inform voters of the election law changes in the bill. The secretary would also be required to ensure specific outreach is done for groups and communities that have historically underused vote-by-mail and early voting. Sponsor Sen. Becca Rausch said that the bill “contains many significant advancements for voter access that should be celebrated, including expansion of mail-in and early voting, same day voter registration and jail-based voting reforms.” “Simply put, we can’t achieve our goal of expanding ballot box access unless the voters know about these substantial reforms,” continued Rausch. “A culturally relevant and linguistically diverse outreach campaign will support voters in exercising their constitutional right to vote.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes OVERSEAS VOTING (S 2545) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment that would allow Massachusetts residents who are serving in the armed forces overseas and their families as well as any Massachusetts citizen living in a foreign country to cast their vote electronically through a secure online portal. Amendment supporters said that the current process for voting from overseas is complex and burdensome. The voter is required to communicate with their local clerk, receive their ballot, print it out and fax, scan or mail it back. They noted that military members often do not have functioning printers, scanners or fax machines available to them on military installations or are out on missions that take them away from their installations. “When you are in the military, the focus is always on the mission at hand,” said sponsor Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield). “We as a commonwealth have an obligation to make this process as easy as possible so that our military members can exercise their right to vote and get back to their mission. At the most fundamental level, this amendment is about making it easier to vote for those who have given us our right to vote.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been 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 October 4-8, the House met for a total of four hours and 32 minutes while the Senate met for a total of five hours and 40 minutes. Mon.
