Joyce Mover 781-438-0803 or 781-462-5043 DCR program helps communities grow urban forests By Barbara Taormina The city and the Canopy M alden’s tree advocates received some support and advice this week from Julie Coop, coordinator of the Department of Conservation and Recreation’s Urban and Community Forestry program. Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley, chairman of the City Council’s Community Forestry Program Advisory Committee, arranged the presentation to learn more about what type of help the state off ers with urban forestry programs. Coop explained how her program works, and the different resources and grants available to communities looking for help managing their trees. “Our aim is to assist communities and nonprofi t groups in protecting, growing and managing community trees and forest ecosystems,” Coop told committee members. She added that the program’s goal is to improve the environment and enhance the livability of communities throughout the state. Collective, a citizens’ advocacy group, have teamed up and applied for a DCR grant to conduct an inventory of the city’s street trees. “The application is still being reviewed, but we should find out if we’ll receive it within the next month,” said O’Malley, adding that the inventory the city started years ago is incomplete and out of date. Coop said the forestry program provides training and technical assistance to cities and towns. “We will respond to what a community is wanting,” said Coop, adding that the standard workshops focus on tree inventories, proper planting methods, tree identifi cation and i-Tree, software that lets a community assess its community trees. Malden is also a candidate for the Greening the Gateway Cities program, which was developed to help cut household energy use for heating and cooling. The program, which plants trees predominately on private property, targets neighborhoods with older houses surrounded by a lower tree canopy and subject to high wind speeds. Tree plantings are concentrated in Environmental Justice neighborhoods to benefi t residents most in need. According to the research behind the program, trees can signifi cantly cut summertime cooling costs by providing shade. Trees can also reduce winter energy costs by interfering with wind patterns that cause heat loss by air fi ltration in homes with inadequate insulation. The Greening the Gateway Cities program staff estimate that a 1 percent increase in the tree canopy, above a minimum 10 percent canopy, reduces the energy need for cooling by nearly two percent while energy needed for heating is cut by just over 1 percent. So far, the Greening the Gateway Cities program has planted roughly 19,000 trees, mostly in the front and side yards of private homes.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 3 Malden resident presents fi rst-ever photo of a black hole By Barbara Taormina eople around the world were awestruck this week when scientists released the first image of a mysterious and terrifying point in the universe, a supermassive black hole 55 million light years from Earth. In Malden the extraordinary accomplishment, which many say will alter the course of astrophysics and shape our future understanding of the universe, hit a little closer to home. Sheperd Doeleman, one of the lead scientists on the project that involved a team of 200 researchers spread around the globe, is a neighbor who lives on Sprague Street. “We are delighted to be able to report to you today that we have seen what we thought was unseeable. We have seen and taken a picture of a black hole,” said Doeleman Wednesday morning during a press conference at the National Science Foundation in Washington, D.C. A senior research fellow at the Harvard-Smithsonian Center for Astrophysics, Doeleman is also the director of Image of a black hole captured by the EHT collaboration. (Courtesy Photo) the Event Horizon Telescope (EHT) collaboration, a worldwide network of eight radio telescopes that together managed to capture the image of a black hole in the constellation of Virgo. As Albert Einstein and any sci-fi fan can tell you, a black hole is created when a huge amount of matter is compressed into a very small space. The result is a gravitational force so powerful that not even tiny specs of light can escape being pulled on a terrifying ride into oblivion. With a mass estimated to be four times that of the sun, black holes are said to have the power to stretch and warp spacetime. During the press conference Doeleman explained that the bright sections of the lower part of the orange ring surrounding the black circle is matter moving at light speeds, which lines up with the research team’s predictions that were based on Einstein’s theories. “We now know clearly that black holes drive large-scale structure in the universe,” said Doeleman. “As with all great discoveries, this is just the beginning,” he added.

It is a true story. For the last few weeks, I was sure that I had diabetes. I was positive that I had all the symptoms of this illness. Fortunately, I had an appointment with my doctor. I was going to tell him my story about my ailments. When it was my turn to see him in his offi ce, he immediately asked me how I was, and I was ready to tell him my story. I said to him, “Now, Doctor, this is Doctor Ruane speaking” – ME! I told him of my diagnosis of diabetes. He asked me immediately, “What makes you thing you have diabetes? Well, I have tingling in my I feet, and this is very important, all my life I dieted, never having desserts except on weekends. Now in my new humble abode, I have delicious desserts twice a day, and it is catching up with me. And no, I have not put on any weight, which amazes me. I am eating all these goodies and everything seems to stay the same. So something is wrong. To add to the story, while dining in the dining room, I overheard a conversation: “Can you imagine this; my doctor told me that I have diabetes. I’m 85 years old and now I have diabetes. I never heard of such a thing. I can’t believe I have diabetes at my age.” Now I know I have diabeSome good medical advice By Virginia Ruane Senator Jason Lewis convenes education roundtable tes!

When I finished telling my very patient doctor my story, he said that he would take a blood test right now. I thought that was a good idea. When he came back into the room he informed me, YOU DO NOT HAVE DIABETES! This was music to my ears. I thanked the doctor over and over again. Never again will I try to diagnose my ailments. Let this be a good lesson for me. I was so happy leaving his offi ce that I stopped at the nearest ice cream shop and had a nice big chocolate fudge sundae. I deserved it!

Page 8 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 ~ Letter to the Editor ~ The real costs of artifi cial turf on Roosevelt Park Dear Editor, In the last few weeks, the Salemwood School community and Malden residents learned there is a plan to artifi cial turf the Roosevelt Field to meet the needs of the many athletic teams in the City. At face value this may seem like a great idea considering the condition of the fi eld. The field has not been renovated since the school was built nearly 20 years ago in 1999. There is no doubt the field certainly needs renovations which includes an improved drainage system to alleviate muddy conditions. But it is not that easy, artificial turf removes another large natural green space in our community forever. Artifi - cial turf adds to global warming through increasing ground surface temperatures by as much as 40 degrees. By removing grass, we are also removing a natural pollution fi lter, a natural heat absorber and cooling system in the summer, and a resource for adding oxygen into the air. The cost of using crumb rubber infi ll in the turf is a more serious issue. Crumb rubber is an unregulated product that is now being investigated as part of extensive research studies by the EPA, Consumer Product Safety Commission and the California Office of Environmental Health Hazard Assessment (OEHHA). Crumb rubber is made up of shredded and ground up used tires that conGrand Opening! Wood Fired Pizzeria tain a host of harmful substances and known carcinogens that could seriously affect the health of individuals playing on these fi elds but more importantly, in this case, the children from the Salemwood School who will be playing on this product for over 9 years of their life as students at the Salemwood School. The cheapest option at the time is not always the cheapest option in the long run. There are confl icting cost savings data comparing natural grass maintenance and the cost of maintaining, replacing and disposing of turf at the end of its useful life. The cost of this project is well View our Full Menu Online Buy One Pizza/Get 2nd Pizza FREE!

A large portion of the taxpayer funded Community Preservation Act monies are being funneled into the project. The cost of not involving the Salemwood School community and the surrounding neighborhood has divided residents and caused a riff because the planning of this project was not transparent and inclusive from the start. The cost of not including the planning of this project with the Salemwood Community is this: the 1200 low income and predominantly (70 percent) ELL students who attend this school had no part in planning the design of this project. There is no plan for a basketball court which is a priority for the students. There is no plan for an additional handicap accessible playground for the many multi handicap students who attend the school. There was no outreach as to how this lengthy construction project will aff ect the school day for the students and staff . As an educator at the Salemwood School and a lifelong resident of Malden, I cannot, in good conscience vote for anyone in political offi ce, who approves this project without stepping back and approaching it from a more inclusive, transparent and cautious manner. The Salemwood Community and the surrounding neighborhood should not have been an afterthought. The Salemwood School was built on this park and the children who attend this school should be the fi rst priority. I, personally, believe Malden can do a better job as a community in this instance.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 11 Energy upgrades begin with light bulbs By Barbara Taormina ow many Honeywell workers does it take to change 31,600 lightbulbs? Although there are no quick H answers, the city does know it cost $8.8 million to kick off a multiyear contract for energy effi ciency upgrades to city buildings and facilities that the City of Malden signed with Honeywell last year. Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria said School Superintendent John Oteri gave a great report on the Honeywell project at a citywide PTA meeting earlier this month. “So far the project has replaced 31,600 lightbulbs, which are now all LED,” said DeMaria. “Honeywell is moving forward with all its energy audits, and they are working on thermostats.” The new bulbs are the fi rst major accomplishment of a project that began back in February 2017, when the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) chose Honeywell to provide energy management services based on requests for quotes the planning council issued on behalf of fi ve communities, including Malden. Eric Ruben, the city’s direcEaster Celebrations at Maplewood Baptist Church T he Maplewood Baptist Church will be celebrating Jesus’ Last Supper with residents of the Golden Living Center – Dexter House during our Holy Thursday Service on Thursday, April 18 at 6:00 p.m. The theme for the evening will be Enduring Love. By way of song, scriptures and stories, all attending will be taken on a journey back to the Garden of Gethsemane – where the Savior experienced His longest and loneliest of nights. In accordance with our church’s mission to bless the community around us, our children will be preparing a token of love for each resident who joins us. On Friday, April 19 at 7 p.m., we will join others from churches in our city for a combined evening of refl ection and readings on Calvary’s cross at the Freedom Hill Community Church (formerly the North Shore Assembly of God) at 77 Kennedy Dr. in Malden. As area pastors each refl ect on some of the key characters in the original Passion narrative, attendees will be challenged by the evening’s theme: That Could Have Been Me. The Lord’s Supper will be served. On Easter Sunday, April 21, we invite members of the Malden community to join us for our special celebration, SHOWCASE | FROM PAGE 10 for any part of our LIVE sixhour show. There will be plenty of great food, new folks to meet and old friends to catch up with and a chance to see some great live performances. If you won’t be around that day, be sure to catch us LIVE on the web or on YouTube. In per“The Easter SurpRISE...The Lord is Risen.” Our family-friendly Easter morning celebration will begin with a free Continental Breakfast at 9:15 a.m., followed by a one-hour Easter Worship Service at 10:30 a.m. During the breakfast, kids will enjoy making crafts that will remind them of the real meaning of this special day, while adults can enjoy a relaxing time together. Then we’ll gather for a joyous Worship Service celebrating the many surprises of that very fi rst Easter morning. All guests will receive a special surprise gift to help them remember our Easter SurpRISE celebration. “No one should have been surprised! He told them He would rise again!” said Pastor Gary McClenthen. “Nonetheless, even as those first Christ-followers were taken back by the incredible events of that first Easter morning, we’ll be taking in all of the “good” that the first “Easter” off ers to us today! Join us for the party!” The church meets at 729 Salem St. in Malden. For more information about the Maplewood Baptist Church, Pastor Gary McClenthen can be reached directly at 781-3222636, or visit the website at MBCMalden.net. son or online, we look forward to your participation!

As part of the project, Honeywell is conducting a comprehensive energy audit on all city buildings and facilities such as parks. The company will then move forward with upgrades and improvements to old and ineffi cient equipment, which promises significant savings in energy costs. Among the improvements Honeywell will assess are new boilers, chillers, upgraded ventilation systems, windows and insulation. The company also typically looks at technology to control lighting and temperature in buildings, systems that control water consumption and wastewater infrastructure, and opportunities to incorporate renewable energy sources, such as biomass, geothermal and solar alternatives. Honeywell will also assess ongoing operations and maintenance. City councillors felt a proactive approach to maintaining and upgrading city buildings with energy-efficient equipment and strategies is a solid green investment that would keep any emergency repairs at bay. But what really sold councillors and other city offi cials on the project is that Honeywell was agreeing to an energy savings performance contract. Honeywell has guaranteed that the city will see different levels of savings on energy costs as the project moves forward. Over the next 14 to 16 years, the project is expected to save Malden approximately $11 million in energy costs. If those savings fall short, Honeywell has agreed to make up the diff erence.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 MHS Golden Tornadoes baseball kickoff Face Lawrence High in fi rst road game of the season By Jason Mazzilli I t will be a mix of veterans and rookies for the Malden High School baseball squad embarking on a new season today on the road at Lawrence High School. While some experienced players top the roster, which is led by returning Northeastern Conference (NEC) All-Star pitcher Billy Stickney, there will be plenty of new faces this year when the Golden Tornadoes open today versus their non-league opponent. “Many of our starters were seniors last season and we have a lot of spots to fi ll this year,” third-year Malden coach Steve Freker said. “It will be a challenge, but there has been a lot of enthusiasm so far, and our players are excited about starting up the season.” In addition to Stickney, who went 4-3 on the mound with a sparkling 1.96 earned run average last season, Malden is also led by three other experienced seniors, who will join Stickney as captains: Christian Monahan-Dasilva, Cameron Oliveira and Ari Cohen. Monahan-Dasilva will return as the Golden Tornadoes’ shortstop and will also see time on the mound as a starting pitcher. Oliveira is Malden’s top returning outfi elder and will be in center field. Cohen is the starting catcher and will also be a pitcher in both a starting and relieving role. “Christian [Monahan-Dasilva] was a basketball All-Star, and he’s our best athlete and most experienced player, with three years of varsity baseball,” er coach Freker said. “Cameron [Oliveira] has improved every year, and we expect a lot from him this year in a full-time role. Ari [Cohen] stepped in and did a great job on the mound for us last year. This year we also need him behind the plate for us.” “We are going to really be counting on those guys,” coach Freker said. “Beyond those returning seniors we really do not have any varsity-experienced players. Our other players either played on the junior varsity or freshman teams last year, or are new to the school.” Coach Freker said there has been a stronger emphasis on teaching and the fundamentals this year than in others due to the overall inexperience. “We had to go way back to the basics for most of these players, and the ones who do have experience have really helped prepare us as well with their patience and attentiveness.” Malden will also be looking for some pitching depth from a pair of junior lefthanders: Ezra Kruckenberg and Devin Killoren. “Both of these players will also be in the lineup every day when they are not on the mound,” coach Freker said. “They are knowledgeable baseball players and we need them to step right in this year.” The Golden Tornadoes will also be looking for contributions from senior infi elder Danny Fuentes, transfer from Marblehead; junior infi elder Tom Curran, sophomores Clifton Noelsaint, Mike Mathes and Kevin Nguyen; and freshmen Shawn Bartholomew and Shai Cohen.

This report represents a breakthrough for the recreational use of the river,” said Kathy Vandiver of the Massachusetts Institute of Technology’s Center for Environmental Health Sciences (MIT CEHS), a volunteer at the Friends of the Malden River. Overview of the work T his health risk study was completed by Gradient Corporation, MIT CEHS and the MyRWA. For the purposes of this study, sediment samples from the Malden River were collected during the summer of 2017 and analyzed for contaminants in certifi ed laboratories. The sediment samples were collected from nine locations: seven from potential public boat launch locations and two from existing boathouse launches. These were the Malden High School and Tufts University sites. Water samples were also collected from multiple locations along the river. Health risk methods ith the concentrations of contaminants at these locations in hand, analysts calculated the health risks faced by boaters who might come in contact with the water and sediments. To do this, the analysts considered a wide range of boaters, children, casual paddlers, and frequent competitive boaters. Importantly, they assumed that all boaters would frequently be exposed to maximal amounts of sediment and water. For example, the analysts assumed that boaters would capsize every time they went out; they would wade through sediments up to their knees every time they launched; and they would swallow water and sediments on every trip as well. This kind of risk study is called a “conservative” study, because it incorporates maximal risk factors into the calculations, thus generating a wide margin of safety. RIVER | SEE PAGE 17 W

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 15 Lime switches to e-bikes By Barbara Taormina L ate last year, Scott Mullen of Lime Bikes visited the City Council to tout the bikesharing program’s popularity, its potential to ease traffi c on congested city roads and its contributions to public health and the environment. Mullen told City Councillors that Lime is a new business that continually reviewed operations to meet the needs and interests of the communities the company serves. As part of that ongoing review, Lime has now announced it is calling in all its traditional pedal-powered bikes and replacing them with e-bikes that are equipped with a small electric motor that gives riders a boost. Last December, Mullen told councillors that e-bikes are popular with riders for a variety of reasons, and the motorized bikes are expected to eventually make up 50 percent of Lime’s fl eet. “It helps someone who is in a suit that doesn’t want to ride because they may get sweaty on the way to the train or the offi ce,” he said. Mullen also described the benefi ts of e-bikes for seniors, especially those who want to ride and keep up with grandchildren as they travel along the Northern Strand Community Trail aka Bike to the Sea. That’s a small problem. As Ward 5 Councillor Barbara LEGAL NOTICE Murphy pointed out, the city ordinance that the council crafted several years ago to regulate the bike path bans motorized vehicles. “One of the conditions of the ordinance is that [bikes] always need to [go] under manual power,” Murphy told Mullen. “There can’t be any electronic or motorized vehicle used on the bike path.” “I’d love to see the ordinance,” said Mullen, who added that there are diff erent classes of e-bikes. Lime’s e-bikes are the lowest level of motorized bicycles, and they require continual peddling. Both Murphy and Mullen seemed sure the confl ict could be resolved. But Murphy stressed that councillors need to review e-bikes and the ordinance. Now there will be more for everyone to chew on during that review. To begin with, there will be a price bump. E-bikes will cost $1 to unlock and 15 cents for every minute of the ride. Traditional Lime bikes cost riders $1 for 30 minutes. Lime is also working toward launching a fl eet of e-scooters. This month, Brookline began an eight-month pilot program allowing 200 e-scooter rentals, 100 scooters from Lime, and 100 from Bird, a competing e-scooter company. Local media outlets were invited to the inaugural e-scooter ride that took off from LEGAL NOTICE INVITATION FOR SCHOOL BUS TRANSPORTATION BID RFP NUMBER 04-30-001 Pioneer Charter School of Science is seeking a transportation company for a 5-year contract.

But according to Callum Borchers, who covered the ride for WBUR, several minutes later, Kim Smith, 62, was in an ambulance en route to the hospital with a bloodied head. Smith lost her balance while riding a Lime e-scooter. She received four stitches and was released. After the ride, Borchers interviewed Mullen, who said he wants to learn more about the circumstances of the accident. “I need more details,” Mullen told the reporter. “Was she hit by something? Was there a banana peel? We’ll fi gure it out. Let me get the facts, and we’ll fi gure it out.” Malden was also a Lime pilot program for the Metropolitan Area Planning Council, which developed a plan to bring dock-less bike-sharing programs to 15 greater Boston communities. And by nearly all accounts, it was a success. When Mullen met with the council, he brought some impressive statistics. Lime bikes debuted in Malden in late October 2017. Over the course of 14 months, the bikes were taken on 80,000 rides, racking up a total of about 70,000 miles. Councillors did raise some concerns about bikes being left in the middle of sidewalks and other spots that have caused headaches for residents. Although Mullen said he was sorry to hear about LEGAL NOTICE abandoned bikes, he insisted the perception was worse than the problem. Other councillors noted that the program wasn’t costing the city anything, and several praised Lime bikes. They were especially pleased that Lime has located its regional warehouse on Eastern Avenue and the company has generated more than two dozen new jobs, several of which have gone to Malden residents.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 17 RIVER | FROM PAGE 14 Results favorable for boating ven while assuming maximal exposures, all boaters’ health risks met all state and federal standards for acceptable environmental health risks. The highest health risk over a lifetime of exposure to Malden River water and sediments in this study was calculated to be about 1 in 10 -5 (one chance in 100,000). This worst-case scenario falls well below a level set by the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) that would usually require the cleanup of contaminated site (1 in 10 -4, or 1 in 10,000). Furthermore, boaters will E probably not ever experience the worst-case risk level because they will not be wading through the sediments or capsizing on every outing. Launching from a dock – which is how boaters will likely use the water – will reduce the real risks even further. “With this important information in hand – we now must turn to expanding access to the river through parks, paths and boat launches – priorities outlined in our community-driven Malden River Vision Plan,” said MyRWA Executive Director Patrick Herron. “The great news is that there are awesome municipal and community partners that are committed to making a diff erence.” Project funders & partners T his study was funded in part by The Llewellyn Foundation, The Fine Foundation, Preotle Lane & Associates, the Mystic River Watershed Environmental Fund and Mystic Valley Development Corp. MyRWA, MIT CEHS and Gradient Corp. provided in-kind support. “The Human Health Risk Study on the Malden River is a prime example of an important collaboration initiated with an idea from our community,” said Karen Buck of the Friends of the Malden River. “Since 2016, together with MyRWA, we formed partnerships that overcame the funding shortage. This collaboration created a meticulous, independent, and unarguable study providing the community with assurance that yes, it is safe to boat on the Malden River. The sense of relief and joy is palpable. Now, the work begins!” ~ OPEN HOUSE ~ Sunday, April 14 * 12:00 - 1:30 PM 63 HARVARD ST., CHELSEA PRATTVILLE NEW PRICE: $619,900. by iller Trikes for Grown-Ups Dear Savvy Senior, What can you tell me about three-wheeled bicycles? I’m 65 years old and would like to start cycling again but I have some occasional balance problems and don’t trust myself on a two-wheeler. What can you recommend? Ready to Ride Dear Ready, Three-wheeled bikes – also known as adult trikes – are a great cycling option for older adults, especially those who have concerns with their balance or stamina. Here’s what you should know, along with some tips to help you shop for one. Safer Cycling If you’d like to take up, or continue bike riding, but worry about falling, adult trikes are a smart option to consider because of the stability they provide. With a trike, you can ride as slow as you want without ever losing your balance and you can put both feet on the ground while seated, which is very reassuring for many older riders. In addition, adult trikes are also made with a low “step through” design making mounting and dismounting easier; they typically come with big tires that ensure a smooth ride; have ergonomic handlebars that are easy to reach and grip; and off er oversize seats (some even have backrests) for comfort and support. And, other than the frame, tricycles use the same standard components as traditional bikes do, so replacement parts are readily available, and repairs are not an issue.

To help you figure out the right kind of trike that meets your needs and budget, here’s a breakdown of the different styles and costs, along with some popular models to check out. Upright Trikes If you’re primarily interested in a leisurely ride around the neighborhood for pleasure, fitness or running errands, upright trikes are a good choice. These are traditional upright-positioned tricycles that come with rear cargo baskets and limited gear options, usually ranging from one to three-speeds. A great choice in this category is the Sun Traditional Trike (see Sun.bike/trikes) that cost between $440 and $550. Or, for a less expensive option consider the Schwinn Meridian Adult Tricycle sold at Walmart, Target or Amazon.com for around $300. Recumbent Trikes These are the low-to-theground, stretched-out frame trikes that allow you to recline with your legs positioned in front of you. Available in various styles, recumbent trikes are very comfy, easy on the back and aerodynamic which make them ideal for longer rides. TerraTrikes (Terratrike.com) and Catrike (Catrike.com) are two of the biggest U.S. companies that make tadpole-style (the two wheels are in front) recumbent trikes. Or, see Sun Seeker (Sunseeker.bike), which sells several Delta recumbent trikes (two wheels in back) that off er a higher seat level. But be aware that recumbent trikes are much more expensive, typically ranging between $1,000 and $4,000. E-Trikes If you want a boost from time-to-time, electric trikes are a great option too. These trikes are hybrids that have pedals and a battery powered electric motor, so you can exercise when you want, or when you need a boost, you can let the motor assist you. A great place to fi nd these is at ElectricTrike.com, which off er a variety of options ranging from $1,500 to $3,000. You can also fi nd them on e-bike sites like PedegoElectricBikes.com, ProdecoTech.com and Evelo.com. Folding Trikes If you like to travel or if you have limited storage space, trikes that are designed to fold up to fi t in tight spaces are another option. The Kent Adult Westport Folding Tricycle and Mantis Tri-Rad Folding Adult Tricycle sold at Amazon.com for around $300 are two popular options to check out.

WITNESS, Hon. Maureen H. Monks, First Justice of this Court. Date: April 03, 2019 TARA E. DeCRISTOFARO REGISTER OF PROBATE April 12, 2019 YOUR LEGISLATORS: This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call looks at the ratings senators and representatives received from three interest groups who measured legislators’ support or opposition to the group’s legislative agenda in the 2017 and/or 2018 session. This week’s report features the grades received from The Massachusetts Public Interest Group, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund and Citizens for Limited Taxation. CITIZENS FOR LIMITED TAXATION (CLT) CLT, founded in 1974, describes itself as the group that “defended state taxpayers against a proposed state graduated income tax, which it defeated on the 1976 statewide ballot, and again in 1994. CLT also limited property and auto excise taxes with Proposition 21/2 in 1980, repealed the surtax and created a state tax cap in 1986 and rolled back the "temporary" income tax hike on the 2000 ballot. For decades CLT has provided its annual ‘Rating of Legislators’ to provide taxpayers with easy access to the performance of their respective state representative and senator regarding tax policy.” "For 45 years CLT has been the bulwark for taxpayers against unlimited taxation in a state that has an insatiable spending problem," said Chip Ford, executive director. "Since its founding, CLT has saved Massachusetts taxpayers billions of their hard-earned dollars." Key to scorecard: CLT used ten House votes and fi ve Senate votes when calculating the 2017 ratings of the state’s legislators. Issues include the legislative pay hike, reducing the sales tax and income tax to 5 percent, imposing a graduated income tax, increasing the senior property tax deduction to $2,000 and requiring a social security number in order to get public housing. More details on the scorecard at http://cltg.org/cltg/ clt2018/2017_Ratings.htm. Here is the percentage of time local representatives and senators voted with CLT: Rep. Paul Donato 0% Rep. Steven Ultrino 0% Sen. Jason Lewis 20 percent MASSACHUSETTS PUBLIC INTEREST RESEARCH GROUP (MASSPIRG) MASSPIRG, founded in 1972, describes itself as a consumer group that “stands up to powerful interests whenever they threaten our health and safety, our fi nancial security or our right to fully participate in our democratic society. Since 1972, we’ve stood up for consumers, countering the infl uence of big banks, insurers, chemical manufacturers and other powerful special interests.” “In our role as watchdog and advocate for the public interest, we monitor the voting records of Massachusetts’ state lawmakers each legislative session,” said Executive Director Janet Domenitz. "We appreciate the hard work of the entire Legislature, and particularly those that scored 100 percent." “While a number of our legislative priorities passed into law, many more did not. Disappointingly, a number of popular bills were never brought up for a vote – despite being approved by a committee and being cosponsored by a signifi cant number of lawmakers.

It describes itself as “advocates for state policies that dismantle barriers to sexual and reproductive health care, including safe, legal abortion, improve access to comprehensive sex education and proBEACON | SEE PAGE 19

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, April 12, 2019 Page 19 BEACON | FROM PAGE 18 tect reproductive rights of all people.” “As the leading advocate for reproductive rights in Massachusetts, the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund is working towards a state in which every person has the rights, freedoms, and opportunities to control their lives and determine the course of their own futures—no matter what,” said Tricia Wajda, Vice President of External Aff airs for the Planned Parenthood Advocacy Fund. By championing bold policies that break down entrenched barriers to health care, improve access to sex education, and defend reproductive rights against political attacks, The Advocacy Fund is helping build healthier and more equitable communities.” Key to rating: The scorecard assigns each Massachusetts state representative and senator a rating of: "Champion," "Ally,” "Mixed,” "Opponent” or "NEI" (not enough information) based on each legislator’s lifetime voting record, co-sponsorship history, public statements and other factors. Here are the defi nitions: Champion: A legislator who has demonstrated leadership on the Advocacy Fund’s legislative agenda and works in partnership with the fund to advance its shared goal to improve access to sexual and reproductive health care and protect the health and rights of Massachusetts residents. Ally: A legislator who consistently supports the fund’s legislative and policy agenda including protecting access to safe, legal abortion. Mixed: A legislator who may oppose access to safe, legal abortion - but who supports preventive health measures – such as family planning and sex education – and is willing to work with the Advocacy Fund in support of these issues. In other instances, a “mixed” legislator may support abortion access, but has taken action against sexual and reproductive health care ac1.
