COM Member FDIC Member DIF here were some heated moments during the November 16 School Committee meeting as Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani locked horns with Mayor Carlo DeMaria insisting that City Hall is holding $1.3 million that belongs to the district. During the meeting, Tahiliani said the total fi gure had been broken down into three requests for reimbursement. The first request was for $471,140 for costs related to COVID-19. The second request was for $300,000 for special education transportation. The last request was for $580,000 for the lease of the Devens School. “The first two requests are premature and are not being submitted to the City Council,” said Tahiliani, adding that she was told the district already had adequate funds to cover those expenses.

Speaking about the $471,140 in COVID-19 expenses, Tahiliani said she already provided the city with expense documentation. She also said the city received those funds for the schools from the CARES Act. “The city received them because of us and is now refusing to give them to us,” she said. “I will do what I need to do to get the funds for our students. We’ve been talking about this for several months.” Vice Chairman Frank Parker said the COVID-19 money needs to be reimbursed. “$471,000 – put that in perspective, what that means to the School Department,” he said, adding that the athletic budget alone is $400,000.

Page 2 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2020 Mayor’s Listening Tour gets underway By Christopher Roberson L eaders from a number of social organizations throughout Everett recently endorsed Mayor Carlo DeMaria as he looks to become a voting member of the School Committee. “We need to have unification, give the mayor the vote,” said Jackie Coogan, treasurer of the Joint Committee for Children’s Health Care in Everett, during the virtual forum on November 18, which is part of DeMaria’s month-long Listening Tour. An Everett educator of 37 years, Coogan recalled that in 1984 teachers went on strike because Edward Connolly, the mayor at the time, would not release money for salary increases. Coogan said the disconnect between the city and the schools has persisted throughout the years. “It’s always been an error,” she said. Deborah Kneeland Keegan, executive director of the For Kids Only Afterschool Program, said that in her experience, mayors have been able to “leverage additional resources” for the schools. Therefore, she said, DeMaria should have a seat on the School Committee sooner rather than later. “We shouldn’t put this off much longer,” said Keegan. Antonio Amaya, executive director of La Comunidad, said DeMaria said 60 percent of the mayors in Massachusetts sit on the School Committee. Some of them include Mayor Joseph Curtatone of Somerville, Mayor Gary Christenson of Malden, Mayor Neil Perry of Methuen, Mayor Thomas Koch of Quincy and Mayor Sumbul Siddiqui of Cambridge. “I want to take the politics out of this; I’m trying to right a wrong,” said DeMaria. “People should know where the mayor stands when it comes to education.” He said there has also been Carlo DeMaria Mayor he supports having neutrality on the School Committee. “We need to embrace those kinds of changes,” he said. Cathy Viveiros, executive director of the Joint Committee for Children’s Health Care in Everett, said that while residents may not know all the members of the School Committee and the City Council, everyone knows the mayor. “You are the strongest link to the people in our community – you’re it,” she said, adding that DeMaria would significantly bolster the value of the School Committee. “I’ve seen it work in other communities.” some discussion about asking the voters if he should be on the School Committee. However, a Charter Commission would be needed before the question could be put on the ballot. “You’re talking like four to five years,” said DeMaria. Should he be appointed to the School Committee, DeMaria said he would want to revamp the district’s food service. “I think the food the kids eat is borderline terrible,” he said. DeMaria also said he looks forward to a continued partnership with Superintendent of Schools Priya Tahiliani. “I want to work with Priya. I hope she stays in Everett for 20 years and finishes her career here,” he said. DeMaria’s next Listening Tour event will be with the Everett Teachers Association at 5 p.m. on November 23.

AG awards grant funding to organizations to help low-income residents pay heating bills W ith the cold weather season approaching, on November 11, Attorney General Maura Healey announced that she has awarded nearly $570,000 in grant funding to 14 organizations across the state to help low-income households pay off or lower their natural gas heating bills. As the state’s ratepayer advocate, Healey works to ensure that customers do not pay more for their natural gas service than they should. “Each winter, thousands of Massachusetts households struggle to come up with the funds to pay their monthly heating bills, and we expect many more to be in need this year amid the COVID-19 public health crisis,” said Healey. “This grant program will help us ensure that families have the financial support they need to stay warm during the cold months.” This year the Natural Gas Fuel Assistance Grant program is providing approximately $569,000 to programs run through state agencies, municipalities and nonprofit organizations that currently assist residents in paying for gas service. Approximately one-in-four low-income eligible households in Massachusetts currently receive assistance on their heating bills, and many more are expected to need help this year due to the COVID-19 pandemic. This grant program aims to close that gap by helping families who are in need but are not currently receiving assistance or not receiving enough help in paying their monthly bills. The grant program uses funds from a settlement that Massachusetts Attorney General’s Offi ce reached with National Grid for improperly charging customers reconnection fees. Since 2018 the grant program has awarded more than $2 million to programs and initiatives that provide fuel assistance. The Offi ce awarded grant funding to the following organizations: • Casa Myrna (Greater Boston and Boston Harbor communities in Middlesex and Norfolk Counties): The organization will provide funds to survivors of domestic and dating violence who need assistance paying natural gas bills. • The Massachusetts Association for Community Action (MASSCAP) (statewide): MASSCAP will provide 22 statewide organizations with additional funds to help natural gas customers who participate in the federal Low Income and Home Energy Assistance Program as well as those who do not qualify for the program but make less than 80 percent of the state SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available 781-289-6466 AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE CA$H FOR YOUR CAR!

Page 8 THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2020 Moderna announces COVID-19 vaccine candidate with 94 percent efficacy C AMBRIDGE – Biotechnology company Moderna, Inc. recently announced the Phase 3 study of mRNA-1273, a vaccine candidate against COVID-19. The Coronavirus Efficacy and Safety Study (COVE) has enrolled more than 30,000 participants in the United States and is being conducted in collaboration with the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) and the Biomedical Advanced Research and Development Authority (BARDA). The primary endpoint of the Phase 3 COVE study is based on the analysis of COVID-19 cases confirmed and adjudicated starting two weeks following the second dose of vaccine. This first interim analysis was based on 95 cases, of which 90 cases of COVID-19 were observed in the placebo group versus five cases observed in the mRNA-1273 group, resulting in an efficacy rate of 94.5 percent. A secondary endpoint analyzed severe cases of COVID-19 and included 11 severe cases in this first interim analysis. All 11 cases occurred in the placebo group and none in the mRNA1273 vaccinated group. The 95 COVID-19 cases included 15 adults over the age of 65 and 20 participants from diverse communities. The interim analysis included a concurrent review of the available Phase 3 COVE study safety data by the Data Safety Monitoring Board (DSMB), which did not report any significant safety concerns. A review of solicited adverse events indicated that the vaccine was generally well tolerated; most adverse events were mild or moderate in severity. Grade 3 (severe) events greater than or equal to two percent in frequency after the first dose included injection site pain (2.7 percent), and after the second dose included fatigue (9.7 percent), myalgia (8.9 percent), arthralgia (5.2 percent), headache (4.5 percent), pain (4.1 percent) and erythema/redness at the injection site (two percent). These solicited adverse events were generally short-lived. These data are subject to change based on ongoing analysis of further Phase 3 COVE study data and final analysis. Preliminary analysis suggests a broadly consistent safety and efficacy profile across all evaluated subgroups. As more cases accrue leading up to the final analysis, Moderna expects the point estimate for vaccine efficacy might change. The company plans to submit data from the full Phase 3 COVE study to a peer-reviewed publication. “This is a pivotal moment in the development of our COVID-19 vaccine candidate. Since early January, we have chased this virus with the intent to protect as many people around the world as possible. All along, we have known that each day matters. This positive interim analysis from our Phase 3 study has given us the first clinical validation that our vaccine can prevent COVID-19 disease, including severe disease,” said Moderna CEO Stéphane Bancel. “This milestone is only possible because of the hard work and sacrifices of so many. I want to thank the thousands of participants in our Phase 1, Phase 2 and Phase 3 studies, and the staff at our clinical trial sites who have been on the front lines of the fight against the virus. They are an inspiration to us all. I want to thank the NIH, particularly NIAID, for their scientific leadership including through years of foundational research on potential pandemic threats at the Vaccine Research Center that led to the discovery of the best way to make Spike protein antigens that are being used in our vaccine and others’. I want to thank our partners at BARDA and Operation Warp Speed who have been instrumental to accelerating our progress to this point. Finally, I want to thank the Moderna team, our suppliers and our partners, for their tireless work across research, development and manufacturing of the vaccine. We look forward to the next milestones of submitting for an EUA [Emergency Use Authorization] in the U.S. and regulatory filings in countries around the world, KIWANIS | FROM PAGE 3 her memory alive by doing what she always loved to do and that’s helping people in need. Especially with the holiday season nearing, we hope this will help lots of people in need. Of course, this would not be possible without the continuous show of love and support from family, friends and the community.” Kiwanis President James Mitchell said the club raised $20,000 during the second annual 5K Walk for Ersilia, which was held on October 3. “Kids need Kiwanis, now more than ever before, and Bread of Life and Grace Food Pantry are great examples of how our club can meet the needs in our community,” he said. “These two worthy institutions feed the needy famwhile we continue to collect data on the safety and efficacy of the vaccine in the COVE study. We remain committed to and focused on doing our part to help end the COVID-19 pandemic.” Based on these interim safety and efficacy data, Moderna intends to submit for an EUA with the U.S. Food and Drug Administration (FDA) in the coming weeks and anticipates having the EUA informed by the final safety and efficacy data (with a median duration of at least two months). Moderna also plans to submit applications for authorizations to global regulatory agencies. Moderna is working with the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), Operation Warp Speed and McKesson – a COVID-19 vaccine distributor contracted by the federal government – as well as global stakeholders to be prepared for distribution of mRNA-1273, in the event that it receives an EUA and similar global authorizations. By the end of 2020, Moderna expects to have approximately 20 million doses of mRNA1273 ready to ship in the United States. The company remains on track to manufacture 500 million to 1 billion doses globally in 2021. On November 10, the American Medical Association (AMA) issued a Current Procedural Terminology (CPT) code to report vaccination with mRNA-1273. Moderna recently announced that further progress towards ensuring the distribution, storage and handling of the vaccine can be done using existing infrastructure. ilies of Everett throughout the year, and it’s an honor to help those who help feed Everett’s families.” The Kiwanis Club of Everett operates various annual local projects to benefit children, including Thanksgiving turkey dinners donated by member Carl Penta of McKinnon’s Supermarket in Everett and Christmas Angel Tree gift cards as well as hats and mittens for students. “Annually the Kiwanis Club of Everett hosts a number of fundraisers, including the Kiwanis Pasta Supper, the Frank E. Woodward golf tournament and the 5K Walk for Ersilia, all to raise money to provide scholarships for Everett students. Everett Kiwanis provides 12 scholarships annually ranging from $1,000 to $2,000,” said Mitchell.

The Comprehensive Opioid, Stimulant, and Substance Abuse Site-based Program (COSSAP) grant was awarded to MSO by the U.S. Department of Justice’s Bureau of Justice Assistance (BJA). The funding will be used to launch the Involving Families in Treatment of Inmates with Opioid Use Disorder Project. “This grant will help us enhance and expand our nationally recognized Medication Assisted Treatment And Directed Opioid Recovery (MATADOR) Program by supporting eff orts to directly engage families of incarcerated individuals with Opioid Use Disorder,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “Families are critical supports for individuals with Opioid Use and all Substance Use Disorders.

She said those investments include $2.8 million for remote learning as well as $1.2 million for professional development and providing teachers with MacBook Air laptops. An additional $1 million will be used to support the district’s family liaisons and to fund translation services. Tahiliani also spoke about adopting a fi ve-part program known as the Whole Child Approach. “It is a powerful way to encourage children’s learning and thinking,” she said. providing loved ones with crucial information, tools and even counseling, we believe we can improve outcomes for individuals, families and our communities.” In addition to building off the existing MATADOR program, the project will also build on the MSO’s Family Resource and Outreach Coordinator initiative. The Family Resource and Outreach Coordinator position was established earlier this year to engage families through outreach and education, as well work with correctional staff to respond to inquiries, requests and concerns raised by family members of individuals in MSO custody. As part of the Involving Families in Treatment of Inmates with Opioid Use Disorder Project, the MSO will: • Develop and implement naloxone trainings and naloxone distribution for family members of incarcerated individuals with OUD. • Establish a comprehensive family services program for incarcerated individuals with Substance Use Disorder (SUD). This includes outreach to famEPS parent speaks out against delaying hybrid learning Parent Kristen Barrows asked the committee to reconsider postponing the district’s transition to the hybrid learning model. “Parents should have a voice and opinion on it,” she said. “I have a child who is normally an A-B student and is now failing.” Barrows said she spends two to three hours every night with her son on just one subject. “At fi rst, he wants to just give up,” she said, adding that online navigation quickly becomes challenging with five tabs open. “I can see why some kids get overwhelmed and frustrated. How much longer can parents try to help their kids, especially after a long day of work and trying to get dinner ready and whatnot?” Barrows also said increased screen time has started to take its toll and that social interaction has dropped off significantly. “They’re missing that engagement piece,” she said.

The project will be advised and evaluated by Dr. Andrew Kolodny and Gail Strickler of Brandeis University’s Heller School for Social Policy and Management. “Involving families in addiction treatment is a best practice supported by strong evidence,” said Dr. Kolodny. “Opioid addiction is a life-threatening disease and improving outcomes means saving lives.” Since its launch in 2015, over 900 individuals have participated in MATADOR. There are currently nearly 420 active MATADOR participants, 340 of whom are receiving post-release care, while approximately 80 are presently receiving care at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction.

The pantry will reopen the following week, on Wednesday, December 2. AG Healey calls for action to advance racial justice, equity in health A new report released by Attorney General Maura Healey advances a far-reaching set of recommendations for reducing health inequities that impact communities of color in Massachusetts. The report – “Building Toward Racial Justice and Equity in Health: A Call to Action” – highlights longstanding disparities and also addresses the disproportionate toll that the COVID-19 pandemic has taken on the health of Black, Hispanic and Latinx communities, who have experienced significantly higher infection rates, hospitalization rates and age-adjusted death rates than other communities, and are more vulnerable to the economic impacts of the virus. “Our health care system works well for many, but the disparate effects of the pandemic provide a somber reminder that our system fails to equitably serve communities of color,” said Healey. “The intent of this report is to advance the urgent work that is needed to address these disparities. We are eager to work with stakeholders from across the state – health care institutions, policymakers, academics, patients and community-based organizations – to set out an ambitious plan for progress toward racial justice and health equity. COVID-19 has shown us that these actions cannot wait.” The report calls for action in five domains: data for identifying and addressing health disparities, equitable distribution of health care resources, telehealth as a tool for expanding equitable access to care, health care workforce diversity, and social determinants of health and root causes of health inequities. Healey, along with staff from her office, presented these recommendations during the virtual launch event that featured reflections from frontline health care providers and health equity leaders: Dr. Simone Wildes of South Shore Hospital, Dr. Altaf Saadi of Massachusetts General Hospital, Dr. Mothusi Chilume of the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Monica Lowell of UMass Memorial Health Care and Dr. Frank Robinson of Baystate Health. Key recommendations from the report include: Data • Improving the collection and reporting of data on patient race, ethnicity and other demographic characteristics to help stakeholders better understand existing disparities and develop strategies to address them • Setting and measuring statewide equity benchmarks to demonstrate commitment to advancing health equity and racial justice Equitable distribution of resources • Promoting equitable health care provider payment rates to ensure that low-income communities and communities of color have access to the same resources available to any other community in order to meet their health needs • Reducing patient cost-sharing during the pandemic for primary care, behavioral health, and prescription drugs for certain chronic conditions so that underserved patients can get the services they need during the COVID-19 emergency Telehealth • Addressing the divide in digital access by increasing the availability of free and low-cost internet plans and devices and making sure that underserved patients are aware of available resources • Supporting coverage and payment parity for telehealth services, including telephonic visits, where clinically appropriate, for the next two years • Ensuring equitable access for individuals with disabilities and limited English proficiency through standardized provider procedures and accommodation services to minimize existing disparities in clinical care Workforce diversity • Expanding affordable and inclusive educational opportunities to increase access to health professions • Including anti-racist and cultural humility training in medical education, licensure and certification processes Social determinants of health • Prioritizing investments in key social determinants of health – including education, employment, housing, the environment and violence – in order to address upstream inequities that lead to health disparities • Exploring new models to bring together stakeholders who can apply a health equity lens to regional decisions that affect social determinants of health, such as regional health equity authorities MBTA joins Boston Foundation and Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers to make public transportation easier to use T he MBTA recently announced that it is partnering with the Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers and The Boston Foundation to provide CharlieCards to more neighborhoods throughout Boston. CharlieCards are reusable plastic fare cards that can be loaded with cash value or one-day, seven-day or monthly passes. “Too many of our customers have difficulty getting CharlieCards,” said MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. “This is especially true in transit-dependent communities where bus service is often the predominant mode of transportation. With today’s partnership announcement, we are addressing this issue by making CharlieCards more widely available and making taking the T more accessible.” The T will provide 5,000 CharlieCards preloaded with $5 each to East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, Mattapan Community Health Center, South End Community Health Center, Upham’s Corner Health Center and Whittier Street Community Health Center. Each Health Center will receive 1,000 CharlieCards to distribute to their clients. By providing easier access, the T hopes to incentivize riders to use CharlieCards and fare vending machines throughout their travels, thus saving time and improving customer convenience. “We are extremely grateful to the MBTA and The Boston Foundation for making the convenience of CharlieCards more accessible to health center patients, many of whom rely on public transportation to get to work and to see their healthcare providers,” said Massachusetts League of Community Health Centers President/CEO James Hunt, Jr. “What’s more, this is a generous and inclusive approach to preparing city residents for the T’s forthcoming transformation of its fare system.” Funds for this program are provided by a grant from The Boston Foundation’s Permanent Fund for Boston, Greater Boston’s only endowed fund focusing on the pressing needs of Greater Boston. The Permanent Fund has been made possible by more than a century of gifts from those who seek to support innovative solutions to the region’s most pressing problems since 1915. “We are pleased to provide support for this innovative way to improve transit access and affordability for thousands of Boston residents,” said The Boston Foundation President/CEO Paul Grogan. “Making these preloaded CharlieCards available at community health centers improves access to health care and is a small but important way to level the field of access to critical transit throughout the city.” Transitioning customers away from the paper CharlieTicket to the CharlieCard has taken on additional importance as the MBTA moves ahead with efforts to transform the existing fare collection system to a next generation system as part of the MBTA’s Fare Transformation program. In the next three years, customers will find it easier to locate fare vending machines in their neighborhoods as the T undertakes an aggressive effort to bring new fare vending machines to the neighborhoods where customers live, work and play. The new fare system will include a new CharlieCard with tap technology as well as the ability for customers to use their smartphone to pay their fare. In 2019, the MBTA first launched the CharlieCard Access Program – working with nonprofit organizations, cities and towns to distribute more than 20,000 CharlieCards. Free no-balance CharlieCards were made available at Boston City Hall, the Boston Public Library and neighborhood library branches. Other locations included the Boys & Girls Clubs of Boston, city halls, libraries, and other organizations in Ashmont, Chelsea, Fairmont, Lower Roxbury, Lynn, Revere, Salem, Somerville, Watertown and Winthrop. Additional customer fare improvements include: • Fare equity between CharlieTicket, cash fares and the CharlieCard: As of September 1, 2020, all fare payments are the same, regardless of whether a customer is using a CharlieCard, CharlieTicket or cash; • CharlieCards are also accepted at all Fairmount Commuter Rail Line stations, with free bus transfers allowed from Zone 1A Fairmount Line stations as well as free transfers to the subway at South Station; • Youth Pass holders are able to purchase half-price Zone 1A Commuter Rail tickets; • The availability of the five-day Flex Pass on mTicket, a bundled Commuter Rail fare good for any five days of travel within a 30-day period; and • The extension of the Lynn Zone 1A Pilot through December 31, allowing travel from Lynn and River Works Commuter Rail Stations using a Zone 1A fare in order to provide additional travel options for North Shore customers and ease crowding on nearby bus routes.

The federal fiscal year begins on Oct. 1 and ends on Sept. 30. A key achievement was the identification of over $10 billion in tax fraud and other financial crimes. “The special agents and professional staff who make up Criminal Investigation continue to perform at an incredibly high-level year after year,” said IRS Commissioner Chuck Rettig. “Even in the face of a global pandemic, the CI workforce initiated nearly 1,600 investigations and identified $2.3 billion in tax fraud schemes. This is no small feat during a challenging year, and their work is critical to protecting taxpayers and the integrity of our tax system.” Key focuses of CI in fiscal year 2020 included COVID-19-related fraud, cybercrimes (with an emphasis on virtual and cryptocurrencies), traditional tax investigations, international tax enforcement, employment tax, refund fraud and tax-related identity theft. In response to COVID-19-related crimes, CI special agents quickly adapted their investigative techniques to initiate cases into fraudulent claims for Economic Impact Payments, Paycheck Protection Program loans, and refundable payroll tax credits from the Coronavirus Aid, Relief, and Economic Security Act. “This year, more than any in recent memory, demonstrated the extraordinary agility and adaptability of the CI workforce,” said CI Chief Jim Lee. “Clearly, unscrupulous individuals sought to exploit the economic safeguards put in place to buttress a nation in crisis. These individuals and groups were instead met with a cadre of special agents determined to thwart their efforts.” In fiscal year 2020, CI initiated 1,598 cases, applying 73 percent of its time to tax-related investigations. The number of CI special agents increased by one percent, following special agent hiring to offset planned retirements. CI continued increasing its usage of data analytics and strengthening its international partnerships to assist in finding the most impactful cases. One important partnership remained the Joint Chiefs of Global Tax Enforcement (J5), a transnational committee comprised of tax organizations from five countries. In FY 2020 alone, more information was shared regarding cryptocurrency, tax crimes and related enforcement, than in the previous 10 years combined. CI also saw the first guilty pleas for a case under the J5 umbrella. “The release of IRS-CI’s annual report is an exciting day where we can pause to reflect on our most recent accomplishments,” said Acting Special Agent in Charge Joleen Simpson. “While I am extremely proud of the success stories highlighted in the Boston Field Office section, I want to thank and commend all of the agents, analysts, and support staff that has equally contributed to making the Boston Field Office the envy of the country.” As the only federal law enforcement agency with jurisdiction over federal tax crimes, CI has one of the highest conviction rates in federal law enforcement – at 90.4 percent. The high conviction rate reflects the thoroughness of CI investigations and the high caliber of CI agents. CI is routinely called on by prosecutors and partner agencies across the country to lead financial investigations on a wide variety of financial crimes. “While the annual report is an excellent summation of the hard work and dedication exhibited by CI, this year’s report takes on special significance,” said Lee. “This report unequivocally reflects the efforts of a workforce checked. For an appointment please call Dale or Margaret at 617-3942323. undaunted by unprecedented personal and professional challenges. I am profoundly grateful to serve with the men and women of CI.” The 2020 report is interactive, summarizes a wide variety of CI activity during the year and features examples of cases from each field office on a wide range of financial crimes. Some of the Boston Field Office’s most impactful cases in fiscal year 2020: • Twenty individuals sentenced as part of the “Varsity Blues” college admissions and testing bribery scheme • Rhode Island businesswoman sentenced in $10M Ponzi Scheme that defrauded more than 23 victims • Former assistant director of real estate for the City of Boston sentenced for accepting $50,000 in bribes • Connecticut man received nine-year prison sentence for surgical glove investment scheme • Maine tax return preparer sentenced to prison for preparing false tax returns for his clients The Suburban Rent Rebound By Rob Warnock F ollowing the COVID-19 pandemic and ensuing economic downturn, rental markets across the country experienced an uncharacteristic decline in rent prices this summer. Nationally, rents dropped 1.3 percent from March to June, a time period when rent prices rose roughly 2 percent in each of the three previous years. Expensive coastal cities have been hit the hardest. Rental markets in San Francisco, New York, Boston and others have experienced double-digit year-over-year rent drops. But within metropolitan areas, we find that principal and suburban cities are on different trajectories. While rents have declined steadily in the larger, denser, principal cities at the core of each metropolitan region, rents in the outlying suburban areas have, on the whole, rebounded to pre-pandemic levels.* The trend can be seen clearly in the chart below, which aggregates data for principal cities and suburbs of the nation’s 30 largest metros. We observe three distinct phases: • January to March: Not yet disturbed by the ensuing pandemic, rents rise steadily and evenly across both principal cities and suburbs. • March to June: The pandemic halts many moving plans, and rents begin to fall across the country. Rents drop faster in principal cities than suburban cities, but softness in the market exists across the board. • June to September: Rents continue to drop in principal cities, but quickly rebound in the suburbs. By October, suburban rents are 0.5 percent higher than they were at the start of the year, and sit just below their pre-pandemic peak in March. Breaking down the numbers by metropolitan area shows how widespread this trend is. In 27 of 30 large metros, principal cities are experiencing faster rent drops or slower rent growth than their surrounding suburbs. And in 11, including major economic centers like Atlanta, Dallas and Philadelphia, apartments in the principal city are getting cheaper while at the same time apartments in the suburbs are getting more expensive. Use the interactive chart below to examine local trends in each market. The bold line represents each metro’s principal city, while the thinner lines represent its nearby suburbs. Hovering over each line will highlight city-specific rent data. Why is this happening? There are a number of reasons why rent trends in the principal city do not mirror those of nearby suburbs. The pandemic’s effects on everyday life have certainly been more pronounced in cities than suburbs. Shelter-in-place requirements and business restrictions have ground to a halt many of the events and amenities that attract people to cities in the first place: live entertainment, bars and restaurants, public festivals and the like. Many renters today are questioning whether it still makes sense to pay a premium for city living. As a result, migration plays a big factor in the urban and suburban rent divide. While rents cool, the for-sale housing market remains hot, and the people who leave the rental market to become homeowners are often creating vacancies in dense, renter-friendly cities. Temporary moves have also been common this summer and are mostly affecting large cities where younger, more mobile residents tend to cluster. Furthermore, whereas principal cities typically enjoy an annual influx of new residents each summer (especially college graduates and people pursuing career change), a shift towards remote work has stifled this inbound migration. There are also differences in the types of apartments available in each type of city; dense urban centers are more likely to contain newer, more expensive, more luxurious apartments that are positioned to see more vacancies and steeper rent drops during an economic recession. Meanwhile, suburbs tend to have a greater share of cheaper, lower-density homes that remain in high demand even as renters look to cut costs. In recent years, suburbs have offered cheaper housing options to those willing to sacrifice the benefits of living close to a job center. But in 2020, this affordability gap is shrinking in many metros that command the highest prices. After a decade in which proximity was at a premium, the pandemic has now sparked the flame of suburban rental demand. As a result, we should expect an uneven rental market recovery in the months to come. *Each metropolitan area contains one principal city, which is generally the largest population and job center. For our purposes, all other non-principal cities within the metropolitan boundary are considered suburban cities. For example, in San Francisco metro, San Francisco is the principal city while Oakland, Berkeley and San Mateo are all suburbs.

All House roll calls are on proposed amendments to the $46 billion fiscal 2021 state budget that the House considered for two days last week. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE BUDGET “DEBATE” This was the first state budget in the COVID-19 era and most representatives participated virtually from their homes. Most of the decisions on which of the amendments proposed by representatives are included and which are not included in the budget are made “behind closed doors.” Of the 778 budget amendments proposed, most of them are bundled into consolidated amendments by category which are then voted up or down on one vote by the House. This year there were four consolidated amendments, and all but one were approved unanimously and without real debate. The other one received only one negative vote. The system works as follows: Individual representatives file amendments on various topics. Pre-pandemic, members were then invited to “subject meetings” in Room 348 where they pitched their amendments to Democratic leaders who then drafted consolidated amendments that include some of the individual representatives’ amendments while excluding others. This year, negotiations on amendments took place in private Zoom calls, dubbed “348 Zoom,” with a nod to Room 348. Supporters of the system say that any representative who sponsored an excluded amendment can bring it to the floor and ask for an up or down vote on the amendment itself. They say this system has worked well for many years. Opponents say that rarely, if ever, does a member bring his or her amendment to the floor for an up-or-down vote because that is not the way the game is played. It is an “expected tradition” that you accept the fate of your amendment as determined by Democratic leaders. Opponents also say this archaic inside system takes power away from individual members and forces legislators to vote for or against a package of amendments. They argue that individual amendments should be considered on a one-by-one basis on the House floor. $46 BILLION FISCAL 2001 STATE BUDGET (H 5150) House 143-14, approved and sent to the Senate an estimated $46 billion fiscal 2021 state budget that uses $1.5 billion from the state’s Rainy Day Fund to help cover expenses. The House added an estimated $27 million to the price tag of the original version of the budget drafted by the House Ways and Means Committee. Debate was on Tuesday and Thursday instead of the usual fouror five-day period it has taken in the past. The package also includes a controversial amendment that would allow abortions after 24 weeks in the case of lethal fetal anomalies and lower the age from 18 to 16 that a minor can choose to have an abortion without parental or judicial consent. The Massachusetts Taxpayers Foundation says the budget is approximately $285 million larger than the governor’s revised budget and 5.7 percent greater than the final fiscal 2020 budget. Supporters said the package was a reasonable and fiscally responsible one that ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ CITY OF EVERETT BOARD OF APPEALS 484 BROADWAY EVERETT, MASSACHUSETTS 02149 (617) 381-7445 To Whom It May Concern: application for zoning relief.

MARY GERACE – Chairman ROBERTA SUPPA - Clerk BOARD OF APPEALS November 20 & 25, 2020 funds necessary programs without raising taxes. “Amid this unprecedented global pandemic, the House took action to pass a budget that helps to protect those most vulnerable among us as a result of the widespread effects of COVID-19 with significant investments in housing, substance addiction programs, food security and economic development,” said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “I am proud that this budget also furthers the House’s ongoing efforts to help survivors of domestic and sexual assault, safeguard women’s reproductive rights, protect the environment and support high-quality early education and care.” Chief House budget writer and House Ways and Means Committee Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston) did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking him to comment on passage of the budget. Rep. Joseph McKenna (R-Webster) told Beacon Hill Roll Call that he voted against the budget because DeLeo allowed the non-budget policy abortion amendment to be considered despite DeLeo’s recent warning to House members that the budget was no place for outside amendments this year. “After the speaker’s pledge that no policy items would be considered in the budget, I was tremendously disappointed that the Legislature instead took up a tremendously controversial expansion of abortion policy during a lame-duck session,” McKenna told Beacon Hill Roll Call. “I could not support a budget that included these measures.” “Black and Hispanic communities have borne the brunt of this pandemic with lack of adequate healthcare and loss of lives and employment,” said Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston). “This budget does not show that the Legislature is serious about staving off our pain. The lack of Blacks and Hispanics in the leadership team and us not being in the room where decisions are being made is apparent.” “Speaker DeLeo and Rep. Michlewitz chose to again ignore the needs of my constituents by not providing funding for my district,” continued Holmes. “They chose instead to continue to fund the earmarks of their districts and those members who are in the ‘good ole boy/girl’ network. I take it very seriously that my constituents send me to the Statehouse to vote on their behalf. Each vote is earned and not given. This budget did not earn their vote. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes INCREASE ABORTION ACCESS (H 5150) House 108-49, approved a budget amendment that would allow abortions after 24 weeks in the case of lethal fetal anomalies and lower the age from 18 to 16 that a minor can choose to have an abortion without parental or judicial consent. The amendment’s sponsor Rep. Claire Cronin (D-Easton) did not respond to repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking her to comment on passage of the amendment. Republican Minority Leader Brad Jones (D-North Reading) criticized Speaker DeLeo for bringing this non-budget policy proposal forward after DeLeo had said the budget was no place for outside amendments this year. “It raises the question whether agreements and understandings really mean anything,” said Jones. “I don’t deny the underlying issue is important, critically important to members and to the public. But to be done as part of the budget process is wrong. I don’t care what side of the issue you’re on, being done as part of the budget process in a lame duck session, under the cover of darkness, in the midst of a pandemic is wrong.” “The House of Representatives has taken a critical first step in removing medically unnecessary barriers to abortion care and ensuring that Bay Staters are no longer forced to fly across country or forced to go to court in order to get the abortion care they need,” read a statement from The ROE Act Coalition which includes the ACLU of Massachusetts, NARAL Pro-Choice Massachusetts and Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund of Massachusetts. “While our work is far from over, the ROE Act Coalition recognizes the passage of [this amendment] as a significant accomplishment, years in the making.” Rep. Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) pointed out several current laws that prohibit actions by people under the age of 18. “If a young girl cannot get married, if she cannot smoke a cigarette, if she can’t drink alcohol, if she can’t vote—I certainly don’t think that she should be able to get a third-trimester abortion without parental or the judicial bypass,” said Garry. “[In] July 2018 we codified Roe v. Wade. This is not protecting Roe v. Wade, this is expanding abortion to the moment of birth and it is just wrong under those circumstances.” (A Yes” vote is for the amendment expanding abortion. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle No INCREASE SOME TAXES FROM 5 PERCENT TO 9 PERCENT (H 515) House 30-127, rejected an amendment that would have raised the tax rate on long term capital gains, dividends and interest income from 5 percent to 9 percent. Amendment sponsor Rep. Mike Connolly (D-Cambridge) said that this sort of income overwhelmingly goes to the wealthiest households. He said the hike would raise an estimated $1.7 billion annually in new, progressive revenue. He called capital gains, dividends and interest “unearned income” that is unfairly taxed at the same rate that the state taxes “earned income” like wages and salaries. He said this is inherently inequitable and means the person working a minimum wage job is subject to the same Massachusetts income tax rate as the person with a billion dollar investment portfolio. “This additional revenue would allow us to stop the cuts at the MBTA and to boost funding for our regional transit authorities,” said Connolly. “It would allow us to guarantee housing stability and it would give us the means to end homelessness in our commonwealth. It would also enable us to live up to the commitments we proudly made earlier this session with the Student Opportunity Act, and it would further enable us to support our public colleges and universities and to expand access to the full range of health care, childcare and social services, programs that are made all the more critical in this time of worsening pandemic, economic hardship and legal threat to the Affordable Care Act.” Amendment opponents said that calling capital gains, dividends, and interest “unearned income” is totally misleading. They noted that the taxpayer actually originally earned this income and should not be taxed more than once on it. “To a ‘progressive’ Democrat perpetual tax hikes are the solution to every problem real or imagined,” said Chip Ford, Executive Director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, “and more is never enough.” “Rep. Mike Connolly’s defeated amendment to hike the tax rate on so-called ‘unearned income’ is a perfect example,” added

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 20, 2020 Page 17 Ford. “He even compared it to the upcoming ‘Millionaire’s Tax’ constitutional amendment to unfairly soak the wealthy that’s being pushed onto the 2022 ballot by the liberal wing of the Legislature—most legislators— that is expected to raise an additional $2 billion annually. More is never enough for insatiable tax-and-spend ‘progressives,’ as this again demonstrates.” “Through the Raise Up Mass coalition, my constituents are calling for greater funding to get us through this crisis and support progressive revenue to do that,” said Rep. Patricia Farley-Bouvier (D-Pittsfi eld) who voted for the amendment. “In fact, I pledged to a large group just a few weeks back that I would support progressive revenue increases. Though I would have much preferred to take this vote outside the budget process, when faced with an up or down vote, I believe it was important to keep my promise to my constituents.” “Left wing House lawmakers live in a fantasy world where any low value state program should be funded no matter its cost,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “It’s a good day for Massachusetts taxpayers when their proposals are soundly rejected.” (A “Yes” vote is for the hike. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle No 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 fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible latenight 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 November 9-13, the House met for a total of 25 hours and 50 minutes while the Senate met for a total of three hours and 52 minutes. Mon.

Sa BY JIM MILLER How to Track Down Old Friends Online Dear Savvy Senior, I’m interested in tracking down some old friends I’ve lost touch with over the years but could use some help. What websites can you recommend that can help me fi nd them? Tracking Tom Dear Tom, Thanks to the Internet, tracking down long-lost friends from many years ago is relatively easy to do and, in most cases, it won’t cost you a cent. Here are some tips and online tools to help you get started. Remembering the Details Before you begin your search, a good fi rst step is to jot down any information you can remember or find out about the people you’re trying to locate. Things like their full name (maiden and married), age or birth date, last known address or phone number, old e-mail address, names of family members, etc. Knowing details can help you turn up clues while you search. Social Media and Search Engines After you compile your information, a good place to start your search is at social media sites like Facebook, LinkedIn, Twitter and Instagram. And search engines like Google and Yahoo. When using search engines, type in the name of the person you’re searching for in quotation marks, for example, “John Smith.” You can narrow your search by adding other criteria like their nickname or middle name, the city or state they may live in, or even their occupation. People Search Sites If your initial search comes up empty, you can also use people searches like AnyWho.com, Intelius.com or WhitePages.com. These sites will provide a list of potential matches from across the U.S. Because many people share the same name, these sites will also supply details to help identify the right person, perhaps including their age, prior hometowns, names of relatives, colleges attended or employer. While these sites are free to Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma use at a basic level, they charge a small fee for providing certain details like the persons contact information. White Pages, however, sometimes provides home phone numbers for free. Niche Finding Sites Here are a few other niche people-finding websites to help you with your search. To look for old high school classmates, try Classmates. com. This site has contact information only for people who have registered with it. But even if your friend hasn’t registered, it could provide contact info for another classmate who remains in touch with your friend. Another option is to check out your high school alumni website. Not every school has its own site, but some do, and you can look for it by going to any search engine and typing in the name of the school with the city and state it’s located in. You can also search at AlumniClass.com, a huge hosting site for thousands of high schools across the U.S. If you’re looking for old college friends, look for an alumni directory on the school’s website. You might be able to access your friend’s contact info by completing an online registration. Or, try calling or emailing your alumni relations department and ask them to pass on your contact info to your friend. If you’re looking for someone you served with in the military, Military.com off ers a free “Buddy Finder” service that has a database of more than 20 million records – visit Military. com/buddy-finder. You can also search for free at GIsearch. com, TogetherWeServed.com and VetFriends.com. If you can’t fi nd any current information about the person you’re searching for, it could be that he or she is dead. To fi nd out if that’s the case, use obituary databases such as Tributes.com and Legacy.com, which has a newspaper obituary search tool from hundreds of U.S. newspapers. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org.
