(Advocate Photo by Tara Vocino) Some highs and lows from the 2019 election By Barbara Taormina will represent Ward 7. Amanda Linehan won a narM alden’s biggest political story of 2019 was, of course, the city election. Although there were campaigns with new faces and fresh ideas, 2019 was a year for incumbents. All elected officials who ran for reelection won new terms. Still, there were some changes. Tara Beardsley, Catherine Bordonaro and Colleen Leon stepped down from the School Committee, leaving three open seats. Adam Weldai was elected to represent Ward 5, Joseph Gray will be the new School Committee member for Ward 6 and Michelle Luong row 31-vote victory over Community Preservation Committee Chair Juliane Orsino in the race for the Ward 3 City Council seat left open by John Matheson, who challenged Mayor Gary Christenson in the mayoral race. According to one seasoned political observer, longtime incumbent John Froio, who represents Ward 8 on the School Committee, and challenger Rachel Running set the standard for municipal elections with competitive and respectful campaigns. It was a classy race. The mayoral contest bealden Center and the new city hall are nearly tween Christenson and Matheson was not. Each candidate offered a twisted version of the other’s record topped off with desperate-sounding accusations. Christenson said Matheson failed to show leadership on the redevelopment of Malden Hospital and claimed he accomplished nothing meaningful during his eight years on the City Council. Matheson said the mayor had a record of sweetheart deals with developers and suggested Christenson’s support for residential projects showed a disregard for the city’s low-income residents. 2019 ELECTION | SEE PAGE 4 finished. Water mains are being replaced, roads have been repaired and repaved and safety upgrades to the treacherous intersection at Fellsway East and Highland Avenue are in progress. The city took steps to address broader challenges, such as regional transportation, residential development and the need for affordable housing. Malden also began to expand its appreciation of diversity into strategies for inclusion with discussions about racial equity and with plans for translation services to engage residents who do not speak English in local government. For Malden, 2019 was a busy year with a lot of news. However, the following stories seemed to stand out because of their impact on the community and their potential to shape 2020. MaldenCORE Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity, MaldenCORE, brought the issue of racial equity in city institutions, particularly in city schools, to the forefront this year. The volunteer group, which was formed in 2017 to carry on the dialog that began with the city’s Unity N’ Community forum, held several rallies over the summer to call for hiring more teachers and staff of color, more antiracism training for the school district’s teachers and staff and more support for students who are victims of discrimination. MaldenCORE’s rallies gave students an opportunity to share individual experiences of racism and to describe the effect of never having a class with a teacher from the same racial, ethnic or cultural background. The group raised awareness about the racial disparity beREVIEW | SEE PAGE 10 Members and supporters of Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity (MaldenCORE) rally for racial equity in Malden Public Schools.

Harrington H appy New Year! Perhaps it would be better to wish people a “Healthy new year” – if our lives are healthy, they should be healthy. Without having good health, nothing else matters. At the start of a new year, many of us make resolutions. Our intentions are good, but the resolutions usually do not last long. One resolution may be to learn something new; others may resolve to remove something in their lives that is not doing them any good; some may resolve to lose weight. Losing weight reminds me of my co-worker friend, Eleanor, who came into work one night and announced, “I have to lose 25 pounds. I am now on a strict diet.” That night, we had a retirement, as is the custom; a large rum cake was served. Eleanor walked in line to get her piece of cake, when a co-worker yelled, “You can’t have any rum cake; you are on a strict diet.” Eleanor looked at him seriously and said, “The hell with it, I’ll start my diet tomorrow.” Resolutions take willpower, as well as sacrifice; the Bible tells us, “the spirit is willing, but the flesh is weak.” Most of our resolutions fall by the wayside because they usually entail just too much work and effort on our part; after a short time, we find ourselves back in our old pattern or attitude, and we are soon back to our old behavior and bad habits. One thing that we should all strive for in the New Year, or any time for that matter, is to spend time to exercise. A recent study found that people who exercised for just 15 minutes after doing mental work – like working in an office every day – ate fewer calories. “Exercise has the ability to increase fuel source in the body that may signal to the brain,” the report said. Although many of us do not work in an office, doing any kind of exercise is always helpful to our well-being. Working out regularly might prevent depression, according to another study published recently. Researchers looked at 10 years of data and found that women who were meeting the current guidelines for exercise – two hours and 30 minutes a week of moderate-intensity exercise – reported about 50 percent fewer depressive symptoms that women who didn’t exercise as much. For more than a decade, researchers have connected exercise to better brain health over time; it was also pointed out that just a single session of exercise can improve memory retention in the hours that follow. Attitude plays an important part; follow a healthy lifestyle, eat nutritious foods, exercise, drink plenty of water, develop a sense of curiosity, try new things and surround yourself with positive people, be open to human and laughter, even if you have to laugh at yourself. I like what “Dear Abby” says in her annual message to readers: “Just for today: I will refrain from improving anybody but myself … I will do something positive to improve my health. If I’m a smoker, I’ll quit. If I am overweight, I will eat healthfully – if only just for today. And not only that, I will get off the couch and take a brisk walk, even if it’s only around the block.” A journey of a thousand miles begins with a single step; and only you can take that first step. Be at peace and a Healthy 2020 to all. Charles A. Harrington is a retiree of The Boston Globe and part-time Malden resident.

Uninsured residents in Massachusetts have until December 23 to apply, pick a plan and make a payment in order to have coverage starting January 1, 2020. For coverage effective February 1, 2020, individuals and families enrolling through the Health Connector have until January 23 to apply for coverage, select a plan and make a payment. In contrast, Open Enrollment in other states might end as early as December 15. “It is critical that individuals are 221 Newbury Street, Danvers For Tickets call (978) 774-7270 or www.breakawaydanvers.com aware of the extended Open Enrollment period that is available to Massachusetts residents so they do not miss out on the opportunity to enroll in health insurance coverage for the upcoming year,” said Ultrino. “MakSteven Ultrino State Representative ing sure you and your loved ones have health insurance coverage is one of the most important things a person can do, and individuals may not even realize that they may be eligible for financial subsidies to help make premiums more affordable if they apply through the Health Connector.” The Health Connector offers up to 56 plans from nine of the state’s leading carriers, providing members with a variety of plans to meet their individual needs. Some eligible households might also have access to additional federal and state subsidies that make obtaining health insurance coverage more affordable through the Health Connector’s unique ConnectorCare program. All the Health Connector’s plans meet the state’s coverage standards, ensuring that vital services – like annual physicals, pregnancy and maternity care and mental health benefits – are covered. Unlike predatory scam plans that are on the rise nationally and use deceptive websites or unwanted telemarketing calls, the Health Connector ensures members can be confident that essential medical needs are covered by their plan and the plans meet state standards. For members or new applicants who need help with their health insurance coverage for next year, the Health Connector provides in-person assistance at more than 30 locations across the state at walk-in centers and Navigator organizations. People can find more information on in-person assistance, including for more than 1,500 Certified Application Councilors across the state, at MAhealthconnector. org/enrollment-assisters.

The holidays are over, the days are cold and short, there is less light for Vitamin D, there are fewer nutrient-rich foods around and it’s harder to get exercise than in the nice months. It’s all a recipe for high anxiety and suffering from a type of depression called Seasonal Affect Disorder, or SAD. People suffering from SAD can set themselves into a depression, which is the most common ailment in those aged 60 and over. The Mystic Valley Elder Services clinical team offers some positive steps that might help you feel healthier this winter: Acknowledge your feelings and let yourself off the 2019 ELECTION | FROM PAGE 1 While the candidates kept their rhetoric short of what many might consider actionable, supporters in both camps went all-out ugly. There were vocal confrontations, unfounded accusations, harassment of friends and family, insults, sneers and dull and disjointed rants on different social media sites. Christenson, who outraised and outspent Matheson, began his campaign with $37,862 and took in $58,725 in contributions. Matheson reported $40,053 in campaign funds, including $19,000 of his own money. The total spent by both campaigns was $136,640, including $56,000 that Christenson paid to consultants. While that may not be excessive by 2019 standards, it should have been enough to give the city a better race that might have brought out more than the 27 percent of the hook. It is okay not to feel cheerful all the time. Reach out. Being alone and lonely are not the same thing, but if you are feeling particularly isolated, please seek out your community. Book clubs, activity groups in your building, senior centers, volunteering and civic or religious organizations are good places to start. Broaden your friendships. Do not abandon healthy habits. Be kind to your body and mind by maintaining your self-care practices. Eat well and get plenty of sleep. Take a breather. Make some time for yourself. Even if you spend plenty of time on your own, dedicating time to spend on yourself will help you return to yourself. Seek professional help if you need it. You might find it city’s registered voters who made it to the polls. Most candidates for seats on the City Council raised and spent moderate amounts of money on their campaigns. The top spender was Linehan, who took in $12,141 in contributions and spent $9,728 on her campaign for the Ward 3 seat. Incumbent Stephen Winslow reported $8,946 in campaign receipts and $8,069 in spending, significantly more than the other candidates in the Councillor At Large race. Like Christenson, Linehan and Winslow spent a significant amount on campaign consultants and professional services. And like Christenson, Linehan and Winslow won. Still, campaign costs for consultants in local and even ward races raises the question of what and how much it takes to run for office in Malden. The lowest point in this year’s election came from empowering to face the winter with your own health and well-being in mind. However, despite your best efforts, you may feel persistently sad or anxious, unable to sleep and dismayed by even routine tasks. If these feelings last for a while, ask for help. If you need professional help, Mystic Valley Elder Services operates a Mobile Mental Health program for older adults who need professional mental health services but are unable to leave their homes for treatment or counseling. Through its Mobile Mental Health program, clinical caseworkers provide outreach to elders experiencing mental health conditions that impact their functioning and ability to get their needs met. To find out more about this program, call 781-324-7705. campaign onlookers chatting online about the Ward 5 City Council race between incumbent Barbara Murphy and challenger Danyal Najmi. Malden Youth Soccer President Jason Hamelin questioned Najmi’s citizenship. “This deserves a call to the FBI. Could be a sleeper cell,” said Hamelin. Former City Councillor Neil Kinnon, who had been talking online with Najmi, told Hamelin his questions about citizenship were valid. Murphy, who joined many in Malden in condemning the racist comments, stressed that diversity and inclusiveness are basic tenets of her platform and fundamental principles of the community.

Superintendent John Oteri has been working to address racial inequity through recruiting and hiring more teachers, administrators and staff of color and through trainings, programs and grants designed to promote more diversity among school staff. However, Oteri and MaldenCORE members said it takes time to eradicate centuries of institutional racism. Malden Hospital reset For the past five years, Malden residents have been fighting to preserve the 18-acre Malden Hospital site, or at least part of it, for the community. For much of that time, residents found themselves at odds with Fellsmere Housing Group, which had a purchase and sales agreement with the hospital site owners – formerly Hallmark Health, now MelroseWakefield Healthcare – and a plan to build 214 condos, 18 townhouses and 18 single-family homes on the property. But last fall, the outlook for the Malden Hospital site began to shift. In September, MelroseWakefield Healthcare CEO Sue Sandberg announced that the health care organization had ended its relationship with Fellsmere Housing Group and would no longer be pursuing its proposal for the site. “We are evaluating options for future use of the site, and we will re-engage with the community and initiate dialogue as we move forward,” added Sandberg. In October, Rashmi Ramaswamy from the Gateway Initiative Program of Boston Architectural College (BAC) and the Friends of Fellsmere Heights presented a community-focused redevelopment plan for the hospital site that included different economically feasible and sustainable design options based on ideas and input from Malden and Medford residents. The BAC designs included a proposal to renovate the former nurses’ dormitory into a community health center with offices for private practitioners and health care providers next to a gym and fitness center in the old boiler building. And in December, residents who support preserving the hospital site for the community were again encouraged when representatives of Waterville Consulting, which is advising MelroseWakefield Healthcare, held a public meeting on the future of the hospital site. The consultants stressed that community engagement and input are important elements of the process that will decide the future of the land. There are plans for a Malden Hospital Community Advisory Group and more notifications and conversations with abutters to the site. The consultants also acknowledged that neighbors feel dense residential development would be the least Properties that were once home to Malden City Hall and the Malden Police Station are being transformed into a unique 100 percent market rate, mixed-use project on the site where the Malden Government Center complex once stood. Jefferson Apartment Group (JAG) is redeveloping this site into “Jefferson at Malden Center”, a transit-oriented development that will reconnect Malden’s primary retail street—Pleasant Street—with the MBTA Station at Malden Center. The project is a ground up development planned for 320 residential units in two buildings, a 45,000 square foot office condominium shell (to be built out by the City for a new city hall), more than 22,500 square feet of ground floor retail and approximately 330 parking spaces. The two buildings will be connected by a sky bridge. advantageous use due to the strain additional traffic would put on city streets. “Acting as conscientious stewards of the overall land donated by the Converse family is important to the community as we consider both uses and available open space,” they added. Affordable Housing In August, city officials and housing activists joined a group of tenants from 33 Park St. to rally against steep rent increases. Andreas Tsitos of United Properties bought the building at 33 Park St. which has a mix of 36 studio and one-bedroom apartments, last April. Shortly after the sale was final, tenants received notices of rent increases as high as 50 percent. The cost of a studio apartment jumped from $1,000 to $1,500 a month, and many long-term tenants were forced to move. Members of City Life/Vida Urbana, a Boston-based tenants advocacy group, vowed to fight the rent increases. City officials, including Mayor Gary Christenson and Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson, offered to do whatever they could to support the tenants. According to recent listings for units at 33 Park St., a 400 square-foot studio is $1,400 a month, which is $100 better than $1,500 but hardly affordable. Mayor Gary Christenson and ArtLine Board member Naomi Kahn help artist Frank Stella cut the ribbon to his new mural at Malden High School. The Park Street rally focused the community’s attention on the severe need for more affordable housing, and Malden has since taken steps to begin addressing the problem. The city has established an affordable housing trust fund supported by community preservation funds, grants, donations and half of the fees collected from developers to mitigate the impact of new residential buildings. The trust fund will be used to preserve expiring affordable housing units, to convert existing housing into affordable homes and to build new affordable housing with nonprofit partners. A security deposit pilot program, supported by community preservation funds, has also been approved. The program will help families struggling to put together the money to move into a new home. The city is also supporting the Malden Redevelopment Authority’s plan for a study on inclusionary zoning that will require developers to include affordable units as part of any new residential building project. ARTline Last year, ARTline installed The Wonderful World of Ed Emberley mural in the David R. FitzGerald Park on Exchange Street and transformed a public space most residents hardly noticed into an inviting stretch of color and imagination that’s now a destination for both kids and adults. This year, ARTLine’s board of directors upped their game. In June, they unveiled the Canal Street Hub, which features Malden Joyriders, Joe Malesky’s sculpture of cyclists riding along the Northern Strand Community Trail, Colin Selig’s bright blue bench made from an old propane tank and Clay Larsen’s River of Ties mural, which celebrates the city’s railroad corridor and the Malden River.

A tribute to Malden native Norman Greenbaum and his 1969 hit song, “Spirit in the Sky,” the mural shows a hand tossing up a rainbow banner surrounded by musical notes. Last month, ARTLine celebrated a third mural at Malden High designed by Malden native Frank Stella, one of the most influential figures in Modern American art. Stella’s mural lights up a corner of the city with interacting colors, line and shapes. Project organizers have said repeatedly that they are just getting started, and they plan to bring more murals, sculptures and community hubs to spots along the Northern Strand Community Trail to create the city’s ARTLine. They are grateful for the support they’ve received from Malden and the city’s recognition of public art’s value to the community. “We need art,” said board member Candace Julyan. “Art is what brings people together.” Parks and Rec There was good and bad news about city parks in 2019, and a rush of revitalization plans and new proposals for park projects in 2020. Shortly after the election and just before Thanksgiving, city officials presented the final version of the $2.7 million Roosevelt Park Improvement Project with a synthetic turf field. As a compromise with the Salemwood School Community, neighbors and other residents who opposed the artificial turf over health, safety and environmental concerns, the city agreed the field would be built with organic infill, instead of the more common crumb rubber fill. In December, the Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA), which is overseeing the project, notified Salemwood School families and neighbors that high levels of lead were found in soil at Roosevelt Park within 12 inches of the ground surface. The outdoor classroom and the infield of the softball field nearest to the school’s field house A mural designed by Malden native Frank Stella, a major player in the development of modern American art, is the latest addition to Malden’s ARTLine. were cited as areas that present a public health risk. The city fenced off the area and announced it will remain closed until the planned renovation of the park is complete. Some in the Salemwood community noted that students have been playing in the contaminated area since the school opened 20 years ago. They feel excavating the site and restoring it with a natural grass field is the safest and most environmentally sound solution to a longstanding environmental injustice. But those who support the artificial turf, including sports organizations that hope it will increase available field time, have said the safest solution is to dig out several feet of contaminated soil and seal any remaining lead under the synthetic grass. Over in Ward 6, the news about Trafton Park was better. In 2018, Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow and Ward 6 Councillor David Camell worked with MRA staff and residents in Ward 6 to develop a comprehensive plan for improvements to Trafton Park. In October of this year, the MRA announced it had won a $400,000 state grant to begin Phase 1 of the project, which includes new playground equipment, fencing, trees, benches, a picnic area, new dugouts, a walkway connecting the playground to the park entrances, improvements to the turf on the outfield and a new surface and benches for the dog park. The MRA and the Ward 6 Association have applied for $500,000 to complete Phase 1 of the Trafton Park revitalization project. Trafton Park’s success story triggered a slew of proposals for other park projects and applications for Community Preservation Act (CPA) funding. Several projects are starting with planning and design. The Ward 7 Association has asked for $50,000 in CPA funding to develop a comprehensive improvement plan for Kierstead Park, and Jenelle DeVits has asked for $90,000 to develop a master plan for improvements at Devir Park. Kirby Ledvina and the Ward 4 Association have applied for $44,275 in CPA funding to develop a stormwater management system and a master improvement plan for Coytemore Lea park. New fences, landscaping and design work for Patchell Park have been proposed by the Friends of Oak Grove, Inc. (FOOGI), who have asked for $22,000 in CPA money. The Friends of Amerige Park have requested $195,000 in CPA funds for improvements to the park’s tennis courts, updates in fencing benches, signs and the installation of a water foundation. Marijuana in Malden One of the more surprising stories this year has been the community’s pushback against retail marijuana. With zoning regulations and a city ordinance in place, the Malden Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission screened eight applicants for the city’s five available retail cannabis licenses. The commission voted to allow four of the eight to move forward and hold a community outreach meeting, the second step in the city’s fivestep licensing process. During several of those meetMembers of the Salemwood School community protest the city’s decision to move forward with plans for a synthetic turf field at Roosevelt Park. ings, neighbors and members of the community expressed their concerns about the proposed businesses. Some residents objected to locating the dispensaries in densely populated neighborhoods. Others expressed fears that the retail businesses would lead to public use and the increased availability of marijuana to minors. Still others were concerned about a drop in property values, traffic and parking. Mayor Gary Christenson was feted by supporters at a victory party at Anthony’s on Canal Street following his overwhelming victory over challenger Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson. Christenson congratulated his campaign staff on a tremendous victory with hard work and thanked the many voters in attendance for their support. Malden Redevelopment Authority Community Development Director Alex Pratt, Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow, Ward 6 Councillor David Camell and state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs Kathleen Theoharides celebrate the $400,000 state grant to support the revitalization of Trafton Park. Residents launched an online petition that calls on the Malden Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission to deny a license to Misty Mountain Shop for a retail marijuana dispensary on Commercial Street. Among the four applicants who now head to the City Council to apply for a special permit, only Standard Naturals, which has proposed a dispensary next to Kappy’s on Route 1, has the general community’s tepid support. Proponents of new cannabis industry have said the community’s fears are unfounded. They stress the businesses will bring a significant stream of new revenue to the city and job opportunities to residents. And they repeatedly point out that a majority of Malden voters, 52 percent, voted in favor of a 2016 ballot question that legalized the recreational use and retail sale of marijuana. At a recent community outreach meeting for Craft Cultivation, which has proposed a cultivation, manufacturing and retail business at 1130 Eastern Ave., Malden Cannabis Licensing and Enforcement Commission Member Jenelle DeVits explained that because Malden voted in favor of recreational and retail marijuana the city is obligated to offer at least five retail licenses, or 20 percent of the city’s liquor licenses. But former City Councillor Neil Kinnon pointed out that there are no time frames or deadlines for the city to meet in issuing those five licenses. Kinnon also said that the density of the retail marijuana business in the city is a concern and suggested that density of any product, whether it’s alcohol, cigarettes, vaping products or marijuana, will lead to increased use.

S THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, January 3, 2020 SPORTS | FROM PAGE 9 Page 17 by Jim Miller IRS Introduces a Tax Form Created for Older Taxpayers Dear Savvy Senior, A couple months back I read that the IRS will be offering a new senior-friendly tax form this tax season that will be easier to use. What can you tell me about this? Paper Filer Dear Filer, It’s true. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has created a new federal income-tax form specifically designed for senior taxpayers, age 65 and older, that should make filing a little easier this year, particularly those who don’t file electronically. Here’s what you should know. Form 1040-SR Created by the 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act, the new twopage simplified federal income tax form is called the 1040-SR. Similar in style to the old 1040-EZ form that the IRS discontinued last year, the new 1040-SR has larger print and better color contrast that makes it easier to read. In addition, it also includes a chart to help older taxpayers calculate their standard deduction, which may help ensure that fewer seniors neglect to take the additional standard deduction that they are entitled to. For 2019, the additional deduction for those 65 or older or the blind is $1,300. The 1040-SR form also has specific lines for retirement income streams such as Social Security benefits, IRA distributions, pensions and annuities, along with earned income from work wages and tips. And, it allows a child tax credit for seniors who are still taking care of a dependent child or grandchild. You can also report capital gains and losses, as well as interest and dividends on this new form. Any of the tax schedules available to those using the standard form 1040 may also be used with the 1040-SR. You should also know that the 1040-SR doesn’t put a limit on interest, dividends, or capital gains, nor does it cap overall income like the old 1040-EZ form did. But, if you have to itemize because of state and local taxes or charitable giving, then you will not be able to use the new Form 1040-SR. Paper Filing Advantage Seniors who use tax-preparation software to file their taxes will be able to generate a 1040-SR, but the new form will provide the most significant benefit to taxpayers who still fill out and file their returns on paper. Last year, about 88 percent of the 153 million individual federal tax returns filed to the IRS were filed electronically. About five percent were prepared using tax software, then printed out and mailed to the agency, while about seven percent were prepared on paper. To use the new 1040-SR tax form for the 2019 filing year, taxpayers, including both spouses if filing jointly, must be at least age 65 before Jan. 1, 2020. You also don’t have to be retired to use the form – older workers can use it too. But early retirees (younger than 65) cannot use 1040-SR. To see the 2019 draft version of the new 1040-SR form, go to IRS.gov/pub/irs-dft/f1040s—dft.pdf. Tax Preparation Help If you need help filing your tax returns this year, consider contacting the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (or TCE) program. Sponsored by the IRS, TEC provides free tax preparation and counseling to middle and low-income taxpayers, age 60 and older. Call 800-906-9887 or visit IRS.treasury.gov/freetaxprep to locate a service near you. Also check with AARP, a participant in the TCE program that provides free tax preparation at more than 4,800 sites nationwide.

In addition to the other awards, the Golden Tornado Club presented a special gift commemorating the over 25 years of service to the club put in by Jim Vozzella, who retired from the Golden Tornado Club Board in June 2019. Vozzella is also a member of the Hall of Fame as a past Distinguished Service Award winner. A good number of the players from the 1994 Golden Tornadoes baseball team were on hand for the Hall of Fame festivities, including Kevin McGlinchy, Peter Donoghue Jr., Rich Griffin, Aaron McCarthy, Milton Osborne, Sean Miller, Kevin O’Neill and assistant coach Alan Blumsack. Two other past Hall of Fame inductees as individuals who were key players on that 1994 team, which was eventually knocked out of the postseason by eventual State Champion Andover, were Kurt Gaudet and Ronnie Repoza. C The Secure Act ongress enacted The SECURE ACT (Setting Every Community Up for Retirement Enhancement) on December 20, 2019. The SECURE ACT pushes out the required beginning date to take required minimum distributions from your IRA account or 401(k) account from April 1st following the following the year in which you reach age 70 ½ to April 1st year in which you reach age 72. Non 5% owners still working do not have to take distributions from their 401(k) plan even if he or she has reached the age of 72. With the passage of the SECURE ACT, IRA contributions are now permitted by taxpayers who have reached age 70 ½. Under the old rule, even though many taxpayers were still gainfully employed at age 70 1/2, the law prohibited them from contributing to an IRA account. You still need earned income in order to contribute to an IRA. Part time workers are now eligible to participate in their employer’s 401(k) plan so long as they have worked at least 500 hours per year for at least 3 consecutive years and have attained the age of 21 at the end of that 3- year period. For the first time, if a taxpayer either had a new baby during the tax year or is adopting a child, the 401(k) participant or IRA owner is now allowed to withdraw up to $5,000 within one year following the birth or adoption of a child without paying any 10% early withdrawal penalty for not being age 59 ½. Income taxes would of course still be due on the withdrawal. There has also been a change to the required minimum distribution rules with respect to designated beneficiaries other than a spouse, a minor beneficiary, a disabled or chronically ill beneficiary, beneficiaries with special needs or a beneficiary within ten years of age of the IRA owner. Under the SECURE ACT, with respect to 401(k) and IRA account owners who die after 12-31-19, a designated beneficiary must now withdraw the entire account balance no later than 10 years after the death of the account owner. This effectively eliminates the “stretch” IRA planning tool which would allow beneficiaries to stretch out the distributions over his or her life expectancy. This is a huge change as a 35 year- old son or daughter inheriting an IRA from a parent under the old law would have over 50 years to withdraw the balance of the 401(k) or IRA account. That would have reduced the annual required minimum distribution substantially. On a $500,000 IRA, instead of withdrawing $10,000 per year in taxable income, the son or daughter would now have to withdraw $50,000 per year in taxable income. The SECURE ACT also applies to Roth IRA’s. There will much more to come following the passage of THE SECURE ACT. Joseph D.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports the percentage of times local senators voted with their party's leadership in 2019. Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 144 votes from the 2019 Senate session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. The votes of the 2019 membership of 32 Democrats ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ MALDEN BOARD OF APPEAL PUBLIC HEARING The Malden Board of Appeal will hold a public hearing at the John and Christina Markey Malden Senior Community Center, 7 Washington Street, Malden, MA at 6:30 P.M. on Wednesday, January 15, 2020 on Petition 20-001 by Andy Layman of Sign Art, Inc. on behalf of Pleasant Smoke Shop for a variance of Section Chapter 3, of the Revised Ordinances of 1991 as Amended of the City of Malden, Sign Design Control Ordinances. Namely, Number and placement of signs, as per plans SGER-031660-2019 at the property known as 13 Irving St, Malden, MA and also known by City Assessor’s Parcel ID# 075-283-303. Petition & plans available for public review in Office of Assessor, 110 Pleasant St., 3rd floor. Malden MA or online at www.cityofmalden.org or https://permits.cityofmalden. org/EnerGov_Prod/SelfService. By: James O’Brien Chairman December 24, 2019 & January 3, 2020 were compared to House Majority Leader Cynthia Creem (D-Newton), second-in-command in the Senate. We could not compare the Democrats’ votes to those of Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) because by tradition, the Senate president rarely votes. Fourteen (or 43 percent) of the 32 Democratic senators voted with Creem 100 percent of the time. The Democratic senators who voted the lowest percentage of times with Creem were Sens. Michael Moore (D-Millbury) and Michael Brady (D-Brockton), who both voted with Creem only 88.1 percent of the time. The votes of the 2019 membership of five Republicans were compared with those of GOP Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). None of the five GOP senators voted with Tarr 100 percent of the time. The Republican senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Tarr was Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) who voted with Tarr only 90.9 percent of the time. PERCENTAGE OF TIMES SENATORS VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2019 The percentage next to the senator’s name represents the percentage of times the senator supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the senator opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some senators voted on all 144 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll call. The percentage for each senator is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Sen. Jason Lewis 100 percent (0) 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 December 23-27, the House met for a total of 28 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 40 minutes. MON.

The designated Sustainability Bonds, which will finance the preservation and rehabilitation of affordable rental housing communities in Boston and Cambridge, serve as a new tool for reaching mission-driven institutional and retail investors. “Institutional and retail invesAAA Service • Lockouts Trespass Towing • Roadside Service Junk Car Removal 617-387-6877 26 Garvey St., Everett MDPU 28003 ICCMC 251976 tors are increasingly demanding that their investments drive social impact, and the Sustainability Bond label allows MassHousing to reach new investors who value social equity and environmental action,” said MassHousing Executive Director Chrystal Kornegay. “The proceeds of this bond transaction will allow MassHousing to finance the preservation and modernization of 415 affordable homes, delivering a better quality of life to residents, while lowering property owners’ operating costs and improving environmental performance.” “We are excited that the Sustainability Bond designation allows MassHousing to reach new investors who share our mission, and we look forward to continuing to drive impact, in communities across the Commonwealth,” said MassHousing Chief Financial Officer Charles Karimbakas. MassHousing aligned its first Sustainability Bond offering with the International Capital Market Association’s Green and Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Bond guidelines. The bonds are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of No Poverty, Affordable and Clean Energy, and Sustainable Cities and Communities. BofA Securities and Morgan Stanley were the co-senior managing underwriters for the transaction. MassHousing expects to use the proceeds from the Sustainability Bond transaction to finance the preservation and substantial rehabilitation of two affordable rental communities: The Blue Mountain Apartments, a 217-unit scattered-site rental community in Dorchester and Roxbury, and the Daniel F. Burns Apartments, a 198-unit Cambridge Housing Authority property for elderly and disabled residents. Through the issuance of the Sustainability Bonds, MassHousing will finance the substantial renovation of both properties, including repairs to building envelopes, electrical and plumbing systems, and HVAC. The renovations will make both properties substantially more efficient by lowering energy consumption and water usage. Housing affordability protections at both properties will also be extended. MassHousing uses two main bond resolutions to raise capital and fund its work: Housing Bonds, which help finance the production and preservation of affordable multifamily rental housing, and Single Family Housing Revenue Bonds, which provide capital for mortgages for first-time homebuyers in Massachusetts. Over the past five fiscal years, MassHousing has issued over $1.2 billion in multifamily Housing Bonds and has generated a total of $6.6 billion in affordable single-family and multifamily housing financing, for the benefit of 43,000 households.
