Mayor Christenson will be submitting a proposal for Malden’s fi rst inclusionary zoning ordinance at the next Malden City Council meeting, for the City Council’s review. The inclusionary zoning ordinance is the culmination of two years of review, research and conversations with community members and experts. Mayor Christenson has cited aff ordable housing as a longstanding goal of the administration. The purpose of the orMalden history, having topped the ticket in three consecutive municipal elections. There will not be a fourth time, nor a race for a fi fth two-year term, as Councillor-at-Large Debbie DeMaria’s campaign committee announced this week she would not be seeking reelection in this fall’s municipal voting. First elected to the City Council in 2013, Councillor DeMaria won her seat in impressive fashion in her fi rst try at a citywide post and just her second city campaign. In her fi rst foray into the local political arena, she had won a two-year term on the Malden School Committee, representing Ward Three.

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 7, 2021 DEMARIA | FROM PAGE 1 The DeMaria Committee announcement throws more fuel on what is promising to be a red-hot municipal election this fall as she is the second of three incumbent at-large City Councillors to reveal they are not seeking reelection. Two-term incumbent Councillor Stephen Winslow announced earlier this year that he, too, would not seek reelection to his at-large seat, though he did declare himself a candidate for the open Ward Six Councillor post being vacated by David Camell, who is not seeking a third term. First time in history for two Councillor-at-Large seats in same election According to local political observers, it is believed to be perhaps the fi rst time in municipal history that there are two Councillor-at-Large seats in the same election. “I believe spending time together is the best gift one can receive. My time in public service these past 10 years was truly that gift. I’m proud of what we’ve accomplished,” DeMaria said in a personal statement released on Wednesday afternoon. She thanked her many supporters who have sent her to the City Council four times in the past decade. “To say I am the only woman in Malden’s history to top the ballot not once but three consecutive terms; no doubt gives me great delight... But, I owe it all to you!” DeMaria said. “Thank you to my colleagues and our administration that I’ve had the pleasure to serve with. I have learned from each of you.” A councillor who some say treated the entire population of Malden as family in the many causes and issues she supported and delved into, DeMaria pointed to her own loved ones as her strongest support base. “Obviously public service is a family commitment. So I’d like to take this opportunity to publicly thank my husband and best friend, Al, for keeping me centered and laughing! I’m excited for the next chapter of my life as I proudly pass the baton to a new generation of Malden’s public servants,” she said.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 7, 2021 Page 3 Malden ready to embark on extensive, $4.7 million underground pipe evaluation/replacement project City Council Finance Committee reviews and approves plan, sends it forward By Steve Freker E ven Superman’s X-ray vision would not be an asset to the City of Malden as it embarks on one its most comprehensive and important infrastructure maintenance projects in years, especially when you are considering the expected detection of faulty or damaged water pipes as well as lead service pipes leading to residential units. As Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow put it at Tuesday night’s City Council Finance Committee meeting, “This is critical work that is ‘out of sight, out of mind’ for our residents, but so very necessary for us to address. This [project] will aff ect generations to come.” At the conclusion of a lengthy discussion and review of various details, the Finance Committee voted unanimously, 5-0, to approve the City of Malden’s acceptance of no-interest loans totaling some $4.7 million from the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority (MWRA) that will fund a fi ve-year project that will identify, assess and replace water pipes that may be damaged or otherwise faulty around the city. Some 28 streets will be included in the city, spread out in several neighborhoods, including approximately 11 miles of pipe in all. In the city of Malden overall, there are over 100 miles of underground sewer pipes, according to city offi cials. The main impetus for this project is the increasing amount of groundwater that is present in the Malden water system – primarily caused by faulty pipes – that must be treated by MWRA systems at a per gallon cost. The MWRA has also instructed the City of Malden that it must address compliance issues with its water quality and water collection systems as it pertains to groundwater/stormwater entry to the water system, city offi cials said. An explanatory presentation of the issues and the proposed $4.7 million, five-year project was made by city engineer Yem Lip and the city’s Chief Financial Offi cer, Charles Ranaghan, who both stressed the importance of this key project, which has extensive, related financial ramifications for the city down the road. The city must pay the MWRA to would be addressed by this project. The project in question actually originated in 2019, according to city offi cials. Ranaghan recalled to the City Council that initial approval was given by the City Council in that year: the goahead for a $2.6 million, zero-interest MWRA loan. The project has been on hold, like other infrastructure maintenance PROJECT| SEE PAGE 11 If the Malden City Council approves the project, the city will embark on a fi ve-year, $4.7 million infrastructure project to repair and replace sewer pipes on 11 miles of Malden streets. (Courtesy Photo) Yem Lip, P.E. City Engineer treat excess water from infl ow and infi ltration (“I&I”), which is caused when stormwater (inflow) and groundwater (infiltration) enter a wastewater system. This water, which ideally should drain into the ground or be routed to storm drains, can easily overload wastewater systems. This can cause sewage overfl ows to creeks, backups in basements and impaired operations, among other challenges. Ranaghan and Lip explained that improving the city’s sewer pipes would lessen the creation of “I&I” and therefore lower the MWRA water treatment assessments. In addition to identifying pipes which may be repaired with new linings, there will also be replacements made for some lead service pipes.

Levine T he first night of bocce at the Italian American Citizen’s Club (IACC) on Pearl Street is one of the most joyous days of the calendar year in Malden, akin to any holiday that is celebrated. In Edgeworth it goes Easter, Christmas, Dom Fermano’s birthday, then opening night of bocce season. For you naysayers or Doubting Thomases out there, continue reading if not for the sake of this article but for the sake of your own peace of mind. Wait, I cribbed that last part from Eric Burden. Forgive me. The stars came out on this glorious late April night: not too warm, not too cold, perfect evening for bocce ball – the acrid smell of New England Coffee in the air mingling with the aromatic bouquet offered up by Joe Crowley’s “Sinatra Pizza Pies” at “Pisa Pizza.” The night had all the earmarks of turning into one of the best nights evah!

His southpaw deliveries drawing comparisons by onlookers of other lefty standouts like Sandy Koufax, Bill Lee and Joe Levine. IACC President Billy Settemio (smiling ear to ear without the assistance of any controlled substances mind you) introduced hizzoner to the many members gathered social distance–style, masks up. The Dante Club guys sorta just stood around and stared quizzically, but Maldonians in the crowd gave the mayor a hearty round of applause. It is always appreciated when Gary takes time out for neighborhood events or traditions – always going the extra mile. No fake news there! Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, although not a bocce player, showed support for the festivities, holding court as only a Spadafora can. Thank you, Craig. Another elected official that always shows up! Ward 2 Councilor Paul Condon, looking extra sharp with his hair newly shorn, presided over the evening with his usual flare, his resolute presence always welcome in these uneven political times we live in. Johnny Spadafora even stopped by. John was present to support participating family members, which included just about every person in the club! Except Marty Murphy of course. Another Spadafora with more charisma than should be allowed. Malden Police Chief Kevin Molis (FranMayor Gary Christenson threw out the first bocce ball of the year at the Italian American Citizen’s Club on Monday, April 19. (Courtesy Photo) ny and Joe’s brother) was also on hand, as always. He never, ever misses any of the big bocce nights at the club. The IACC is located right in the middle of his neighborhood. Kevin reminds me of Sheriff Taylor of Mayberry – a down-to-earth neighborhood guy all the way. A rested, tanned and (purple) masked up Sal “Butchie” Gennetti had a noticeable bounce to his step this night as he had his BFF, Animal Control Officer Kevin Alkins, as his good luck charm by his side. Oh yeah, the matches. Johnny “The Italian Rapscallion” Cagno’s team faced off against some formidable opponents, Kevin Giampa’s stacked squad. After some fast and furious action, the teams split. John conceded after the matches that it would be a long, grueling season but having teammates like Butchie, Jimmy “Cooch” Carducci, Matt “The Cerebral Assassin” Cagno, Carl Lipani, Anthony “Handsome Anthony” Cagno, Johnny Ragosa, Mike “Handsome Mike” Cagno and David “Handsome Dave” Cagno certainly guarantees the year will not be boring. Thanks for the update, John, hope to hear from you soon. It is said in Malden: today, tomorrow, and yesterday... Congratulations to the “Battlin’ Bambinos,” Jerry and his feisty son Nick for taking the Italian American Citizen’s Club 2021 Shuffle Puck Championship hardware home with them. After taking three of five matches from “The Rock ‘n Roll Express,” Derek “The Big Kahuna” O’Brien and Tommy “Tommy Gunn” Czar, the Battlin’ Bs were spotted strutting around the outdoor piazza like banty roosters! Stay in the moment guys, enjoy and congrats once again! Captain Glenn Cronin did not get demoted as some may have surmised a few weeks back when I called him Lt. Cronin. If not for loyal, eagle-eyed readers like (soon to be good friend) Captain Paul Hopkins, this rookie mistake would not have been noticed. My apologies to Captain Cronin and to you Captains Cronin and Hopkins, a promise to spend more time proofreading my article and less time at my designated bar stool at the IACC chatting up Dave Angelo. Just heard the Joe South classic “Don’t It Make You Wanna Go Home.” Call me old but I am taking an educated guess here and saying that 20 years from now they’ll still be playing this Joe South tune and not something called “WAP” by somebody named Cardi B.

When Butchie Russell heard news of the rumor, his fi rst word was “psyched!” True story. If you have ever dined or partook in fruit of the vine at the old Bambino’s Restaurant (formerly the Stadium Café and currently the site of John Brewers Tavern), you know Butchie. If you have ever been a member of the Irish American Club, you know Butch. If you have participated in any veteran’s event in the city in the past 50 years or so, you know Butch. In the fi rst installment of “Famous Quotes Uttered by Famous Maldonians” segment, I bring to you this instant classic from restaurateur, raconteur and righteous cat Richie Cremone: “I enjoyed being 20 in the 1970s but not 70 on the 2020s.” If you have ever dined on roasted potatoes and steak tips at the old Brandano’s Restaurant bar, you know Richie. (He may not have talked to you, but you knew who he was). If you ever entered Cremone’s Restaurant (formerly Tricca’s & Cai’s Playoff Pub) and stood in fear for your life while you watched Richie’s face contort in anger as he walked out of the kitchen and saw his bar full of gangsters, lowlifes and ruffi ans, you know Richie.

ORDINANCE | FROM PAGE 1 of the Malden Housing Needs Assessment of 2019, the Inclusionary Zoning Feasibility Study of 2021, the Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund Action Plan of 2021 and the Malden Master Plan of 2010. Inclusionary zoning will require a percentage of housing units in new residential developments to be set aside as below-market aff ordable housing. The proposal was drafted with Malden’s housing market and housing needs in mind. An advisory group made up of City of Malden and Malden Redevelopment Authority (MRA) staff , City Councillors and the Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund Board members met regularly to work on the draft that is proposed. Levine Planning Strategies and Colliers International served as consultants in the process and conducted a feasibility study, which was funded by contributions from the City, MRA and Malden Housing Authority and If you got your bounce on at the old Palace on 99 back in the day, you were probably dancing to “DJ Johnny D” (straight outta Orient Heights) and his boogie down beats. Brother Joe and I send our love out to your whole family, “Big John.” Go Spartans! “This is the end, beautiful friend, this is the end, my only friend, the end” – Mario Pallotta has, sadly, left the building. Bigger than life, Mario Pallotta joins his son Kenny (“The Bear”) in that great big produce market in the sky. Every single person who knew Mario mourns. That ain’t hyperbole. We all loved Mario. He came into most of our Malden lives a total stranger but left us a beloved, cherished member of our community. The YMCA was his stampin’ ground, the friendships he made there, legendary – his storytelling just as legendary – his smile, his laugh, his passion endearing him to one and all. We will never forget you, Mario. My sincerest condolences to his wife of 60 years, Claire, and to his entire family. Postscript 1: Us old Y guys were hit hardest by the news of Mario’s passing. That is where we fell in love with the big guy – back row of the Health Club where, for a short period of time, we shared an aisle with (the late) Joe Croken. Listening to Joe and Mario ramble on about this or that was what made the Y experience in those days something really special. Frankie Russell from the Malden Historical Society was another of those Y guys hit in the gut by Mario’s passing: “Did you see a week or two ago Mario Pallotta passed away? You remember him from the old men’s health club at the a grant from East Boston Savings Bank. The feasibility study included a thorough review of Malden’s housing needs, a market analysis, interviews with market-rate and aff ordable housing developers and owners, and a fi nancial model to test the impacts of inclusionary requirements on prototypical developments. The goal was to develop a policy that would maximize the potential for new aff ordable units without preventing new construction altogether. Councillor-at-Large Craig Spadafora, who is Chair of the Ordinance Committee, was a member of the advisory group – as well as Councillor-at-Large Steve Winslow. The draft ordinance will be referred to the Ordinance Committee, which will allow the City Council to have a comprehensive discussion on the details of the proposal, review the feasibility study and meet with Levine Planning Strategies. Y! He always brought the clementine’s to “The Chowhounds” dinners at the East Side AA. First time I had a clementine was when I got to take a box home from a Chowhounds Christmas party at the East Side, must have been in like 1991 or 1992. I always remember him for doing that. And what the hell do you think I was peeling as I turned the page in the Advocate and saw his obit, yup, a clementine! No lie! Isn’t that a coincidence!? He’s up there with Joe Croken right now after a ‘Steve Caiazzo Executive Workout’ setting up a heavenly Chowhound’s Feast. I miss the ‘Steve Caiazzo Businessman’s Workout’ with all the regulars like Mario, Joe C, Ralph K, Mario Cantone, Frank L, Billy Coleman. Gab about nothing, watch some TV, take a steam, take more steam, hang out some more, then get dressed and have a beer. Those were the days my friend. Miss ya Mario.” Postscript 2: This from his obituary had me emotional from the get-go. Mario in a nutshell: “A kind man with an easy smile, his blue eyes lit up every room he entered. Never one to shy away from off ering his opinion when asked, his friendships spanned seven decades. A devout family man, always spending time with his children and grandchildren. His devotion to his best friend, his wife Claire, was evident as they were always together, seven days a week for more than 60 years. A tireless, old fashioned work ethic that had him up at 2:30 am, six days a week, right up until his untimely passing, to his second home the ‘Produce Market’ in Chelsea, where he owned and operated M.A. Pallotta Brokerage Co. for over 50 years. An honest man that believed his word and last name were his bond.” You created a business. And a community.

The Greater Boston League (GBL) voted to push back the Fall 2 season an additional four weeks, with some teams playing games already, and others, like Malden and Somerville, spending the last few weeks preparing for official game competition. On Saturday, with a 1:00 p.m. kickoff, Malden will break the 18-month drought and host Medford at Macdonald Stadium on Pearl Street in Game #133 of the heralded series. With the absence of other long-played series this year, it is believed that Malden High-Medford High will take on the status of the longest continuous high school football rivalry in the United States – since 1889! “It’s a lot different, that’s for sure, but the players are very excited they are able to play some games this year, especially our seven seniors,” said thirdyear Malden High head coach Steve Freker.

Repairing pipes which are able to repaired and replacing lead service and other sewer pipes would also address water pressure problems in various streets in the city, Lip said. All of the City Councillors on the Finance Committee, as well as the others attending the meeting, were in agreement that the project is essential to the future of the community. They were also interested in how this project could be expanded to include other parts of the city in the future. “It’s good to get ahead of the game, but we would like to see this program expanded if possible,” Councillor Winslow said.

Some $46 million is expected in preliminary numbers. “At the current pace, it would take close to 100 years to do the entire city; maybe we should be looking to expand this project and address more residents’ concerns,” Councillor O’Malley said. “We will take this step for our residents, and it would be great news if we support something in the future to expand this project,” said Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon. enue, identifying 167 residences; advocating for the former Malden Hospital site; supporting the local art community; and helping move projects forward to revitalize Malden Center.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 7, 2021 Middlesex Sheriff’s Office using wastewater analysis to monitor for COVID Middlesex Jail & House of Correction the first county jail to partner with Cambridge-based Biobot Analytics B ILLERICA, Mass. – The Middlesex Jail & House of Correction has become the first county correctional facility in the nation to partner with Cambridge-based Biobot Analytics to monitor and identify the presence of COVID-19 in wastewater, Middlesex Sheriff Peter J. Koutoujian announced this week. “We’re excited to work with Biobot on this new initiative,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “Throughout this pandemic, our decision-making has been medically driven and guided by the science. Partnering with Biobot – a national leader in wastewater epidemiology – enhances our ongoing efforts and will allow us to detect any re-emergence of COVID-19 inside our facility and act rapidly to mitigate it.” Sewage contains valuable information on human health because viruses, bacteria and chemical metabolites are excreted in urine and stool. Through wastewater epidemiology, Biobot Analytics uses the data present in wastewater to gain valuable insights that shape the health of communities. Throughout the COVID-19 pandemic, Biobot has worked with communities across North America to measure SARS-CoV-2 trends in sewage. Because of the early onset of viral shedding, wastewater data has been shown to be a reliable leading indicator of COVID-19 cases. This allows officials to make more informed decisions on a jurisdiction-by-jurisdiction basis. “Sheriff Koutoujian and his team are pioneers in their adoption of wastewater epidemiology to monitor and promote the health of the community living in the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction,” said Biobot President & Cofounder Newsha Ghaeli. “As we move into the later stages of the pandemic, it’s even more important to have early-warning methods to detect COVID-19 outbreaks. Equipped with better data, the Sheriff’s Office is well positioned to make better decisions, and we hope other counties across the country will follow in their footsteps.” The initial four weeks of samples collected at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction have shown levels of COVID in wastewater that have been consistent with the results of direct testing involving incarcerated individuals. The most recent two samples analyzed by Biobot found no detected COVID-19. That finding is in line with the results of COVID-19 testing conducted on 54 incarcerated individuals that showed zero positive cases. “The results of the samples analyzed by Biobot show the processes and procedures we have put in place – including testing, mask wearing and quarantining of newly admitted individuals – continue to be effective in mitigating the impact of COVID at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “The information gathered through the Biobot testing is providing us with an additional crucial layer of confirmation.” The efforts the Middlesex Sheriff’s Office (MSO) have undertaken over the past 14 months have been highlighted nationally during recent conferences hosted by the National Commission on Correctional Health Care (NCCHC) and the American Jail Association (AJA). In addition, a peer-reviewed publication focused on data collected and analyzed about vaccine enthusiasm and hesitancy among incarcerated individuals and staff at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction will be published in an upcoming edition of the Journal of Urban Health. Samples are being collected weekly for 26 weeks utilizing an automated sampler that has been installed at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction. MSO staff will deliver samples directly to Biobot, reducing shipping time and allowing the office to receive results sooner. As part of the testing, the MSO has also opted into Biobot’s variant detection program, with any positive samples further examined for the presence of the variant first detected in the United Kingdom (B.1.1.7). In addition to working with Biobot, the MSO has recently installed ultraviolet (UV) germicidal irradiation disinfection equipment in the HVAC system that provides air to and from the Health Services Unit (HSU) at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction. The UV system improves air quality by killing the COVID-19 virus in the HVAC system. All incarcerated individuals who test positive for COVID-19 are placed in the HSU. “The deployment and implementation of these innovative systems in our jail highlights our ongoing focus on COVID-19,” said Sheriff Koutoujian. “Moving forward, we hope to continue to work with Biobot to conduct surveillance testing that will help maintain a healthy, safe environment for our staff and those in our custody.” Future uses for the Biobot technology at the Middlesex Jail & House of Correction could include facility level monitoring for areas ranging from opioids to infectious diseases and influenza.

Baker-Polito Administration Celebrates COVID-19 Business Relief Program, Awards Final Round of Grants Final round results in nearly $4.8 million in grant awards to 108 additional businesses; more than $687 million in direct cash payments delivered to 15,112 of state’s hardest hit businesses L OWELL –Governor Charlie Baker, Lt. Governor Karyn Polito, Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy, legislators and key partners on Thursday celebrated the success of the Baker-Polito Administration’s COIVD-19 business relief program administered by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation (MGCC). Gathering in person at the family- and minority-owned Panela Restaurant in Lowell, a program grantee, the Administration announced the end of the program, which has provided over $687.2 million in direct cash grants to 15,112 businesses across the Commonwealth. Among the awardees included in the final round were 108 additional businesses that received a total of approximately $4.8 million in COVID relief grants. First launched in October 2020 as part of the Administration’s Partnerships for Recovery initiative to stabilize and grow the Massachusetts economy, this program became the biggest Law Offices of JOSEPH D.

Established to provide direct financial support for businesses, the Administration has tapped numerous partners to ensure specific economic sectors and priority demographics known to be the most impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic applied to the program and were prioritized for aid. Over the duration of the program, 43 percent of MGCC grants were awarded to minority-owned businesses, and 46 percent of grants went to women-owned businesses. Businesses owned by veterans, individuals with disabilities, or that identify as LGBTQ, as well as those operating in Gateway Cities and not previously awarded aid, also received substantial grant support. Additionally, one-third of the total program funding (about $224 million) has benefited the hard-hit restaurant and bar industry, with personal services like hair and nail salons ($91 million), and independent retailers ($62 million) rounding out the top sectors. “Thanks to the work of Mass. Growth Capital, more than $680 million in direct financial assistance has been deployed to over 15,000 businesses across Massachusetts, many of which are located in the communities that have had the greatest need during this pandemic,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Recognizing that our small business community employed close to half the Commonwealth’s workforce prior to the pandemic, this program has been instrumental in helping to keep these enterprises going while supporting a substantial percentage of our workforce as we approach what we hope are the final months of this public health crisis.” “This program, which was designed to provide vital support to small businesses in need, is one component of our larger strategy to help the Commonwealth’s economic recovery from this unprecedented public health emergency,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “I want to applaud MGCC for their success with this program and GRANTS | SEE PAGE 22

THE HOUSE AND SENATE. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local representatives’ and senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of April 26-30. All the House roll calls are on the House version of a $47.7 billion fiscal 2022 state budget for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2021. A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE BUDGET “DEBATE” Most of the decisions on which representatives' amendments are included or not included in the budget are made “behind closed doors.” Or in the COVID-19 era, “behind closed Zoom meetings.” Of the 1,157 budget amendments proposed, most of them were bundled into consolidated “mega” amendments. This year there were seven mega amendments and all but one, which had just one vote against it, were approved unanimously. There is no real “debate” on the House floor. Everyone who spoke on any of the consolidated amendments spoke in favor of them. The system works as follows: Individual representatives file amendments on various topics. All members then pitch their amendments to Democratic leaders who draft consolidated amendments that include some of the individual representatives’ amendments while excluding others. The categories of consolidated amendments include some 16 subjects including programs relating to public safety, judiciary energy, environmental affairs, housing, labor and economic development. 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. Rep. Erika Uyterhoeven (D-Somerville) was the only member who voted against one of the consolidated amendments. “It is worth noting that [my] ‘no’ vote is the only non-unanimous vote taken for the entire House budget, showing how little transparency, public debate and public accountability there is in the House budget process,” she said. HOUSE APPROVES $47.7 BILLION FISCAL 2022 BUDGET (H 4000) House 160-0, approved and sent to the Senate a $47.7 billion fiscal 2022 state budget for the fiscal year that begins on July 1, 2021. The House, over three days, added $59.8 million to the bill. The House version now goes to the Senate which will approve a different version. A House-Senate conference committee will eventually craft a plan that will be presented to the House and Senate for consideration and sent to the governor. “This budget meets the needs of our residents who have endured an unprecedented level of health and economic challenges over the past year,” said House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). “The House continues to support the services and programs that have proven to be essential for so many, while making targeted investments to grow the Massachusetts economy.” Rep. Ann-Margaret Ferrante (D-Gloucester), vice chair of the House Ways & Means Committee said, “The economic development measures and strong social service supports position Massachusetts to recover from the pandemic and continue growing.” “Budgets are more than line items and spreadsheets” said Rep. Jack Lewis (D-Framingham), co-chair of the House Progressive Caucus which hailed the budget. “Budgets are promises to support all the residents of the commonwealth and invest in our shared future. This House budget embodies the deepest commitments of our commonwealth by raising the Conservation Land Tax Credit, increasing support for families living in deep poverty and expanding funding to civil legal aid, emergency housing assistance and public education.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes CONTINUE THE FILM TAX CREDIT (H 4000) House 160-0, approved an amendment that would indefinitely extend the film tax credit which is due to expire at the end of 2022. According to the Massachusetts Film Office, the state provides filmmakers with a package of tax incentives including a 25 percent production credit, a 25 percent payroll credit and a sales tax exemption. Any project that spends more than $50,000 in Massachusetts qualifies for the payroll credit. Spending more than 50 percent of the total budget or filming at least 50 percent of the principal photography days in the Bay State makes the project eligible for the production credit and the sales tax exemption. “Since the inception of the film tax credit in 2006, $2.8 billion in economic development has flowed into Massachusetts, stimulating many businesses that previously were not here, and creating new employment opportunities for thousands of people,” said the amendment’s sponsor Rep. Tackey Chan (D-Quincy). “It is essential, especially in light of the pandemic, that the commonwealth continues to champion job preservation, growth and continued investments in our local businesses.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes EXPAND CONSERVATION LAND TAX CREDIT (H 4000) House 160-0, approved an amendment that would expand the existing Conservation Land Tax Credit by raising the annual cap for this program from $2 million to $5 million over a three-year period, beginning on January 1, 2022. The increase would remain in place until December 31, 2031. This state tax credit provides an incentive for land with significant conservation value to be donated to public and private conservation agencies. The tax credit is equal to 50 percent of the fair market value of the donated property, up to a maximum credit of $75,000. Supporters explained that the tax credit has already resulted in the permanent protection of some 14,000 acres of land valued at over $76.5 million. They noted that for 2021, the maximum $2 million in tax credits has already been committed to 33 projects that will protect about 1,954 additional acres. They said that leaves 83 additional projects representing another 1,482 acres of land on a waiting list with some of the projects expected to be waiting until at least 2024 to receive the tax credit. “The recent passage of the 2050 Roadmap bill recognized that naturally occurring carbon sequestration is a very important component of the state’s ability to reach its short and long-term goals for reducing carbon emissions,” said House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading), the sponsor of the amendment. “Increasing the tax credit program’s annual cap will help to clear up the backlog of projects that are currently pending and will reap significant environmental benefits for the commonwealth.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes CONSOLIDATED AMENDMENT ON PUBLIC SAFETY AND JUDICIARY (H 4000) House 158-1, approved a $5.3 million consolidated amendment that funds public safety and judiciary programs. This is the only consolidated amendment which did not receive a unanimous vote. “I am proud of the work we did in the House of Representative to provide for our cities and town's local public safety needs,” said Rep. Carlos Gonzalez (D-Springfield), the House chair of the Public Safety and Homeland Security Committee. “Chief among our accomplishments is our commitment to process all untested sexual assault evidence kits within 180 days of the budget's passage. This is an essential step towards providing the justice that all of these survivors of sexual assault are owed.” "This amendment represents the values of our commonwealth,” said Rep. Michael Day (D-Stoneham) the House chair of the Committee on the Judiciary. “These … investments seek to help the marginalized, keep our communities safe and continue our march towards equal justice under the law, for all our residents.” “I voted no because this amendment increased both funding for the State Police and the Department of Corrections by $1 million and $500,000 respectively,” said Rep. Erika Uyterhoeven (D-Somerville). “While there is good language on sexual assault evidence kit testing and spending accountability on ICE, I cannot vote for an amendment that increases funding to institutions that commit overtime fraud or force horrific living conditions on incarcerated people. At the very least, we must increase accountability before increasing spending. It is worth BHRC | SEE PAGE 14

This budget provides historic funding for our housing programs as we prioritize this basic, fundamental need of our citizens.” “The House has crafted a bold budget that matches our ambitions in the fi ght against climate change and for the commonwealth’s clean energy future,” said Rep. Jeff rey Roy (D-Franklin), House chair of the Committee on Telecommuni“Climate science and policy is complicated and demands the actions articulated in this budget to avoid what is essentially the most signifi cant existential challenge of our time. It builds on the recently signed climate bill, which increases our commitment to off shore wind in the commonwealth to 5600 megawatts.” "Our prioritization of these essential environmental programs will protect and preserve our natural resources and outdoor spaces, as well as set a sustainable and resilient course for the future,” said Rep. Carolyn Dykema (D-Holliston), House chair of the Committee on Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture. (A “Yes” vote is for the consolidated amendment). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep. Steven Ultrino Yes CONSOLIDATED AMENDMENT ON LABOR AND ECONOMIC DEVELOPMENT (H 4000) House 159-0, approved an $11.9 million consolidated amendment that funds labor and economic development programs. “If there is a common thread in these House budget line items, it is that we are investing in our people,” said Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury), House chair of the Committee on Labor and Workforce Development. “Let’s face it, we don’t have the best weather, year-round sunshine, an abundance of gold, silver or vast oil reserves. Our greatest resource as a commonwealth is our people. We all know that what powers Massachusetts is our skilled workforce. The House budget continues these investments in our workforce and builds on them in signifi - cant ways.” “As we work our way out of this pandemic it is critical that the commonwealth play a vital role in supporting the growth of our economy and make targeted investments in areas that will improve the lives of our citizens and help those hardest hit by the pandemic, including those working in industries such as hospitality and retail,” said Rep. Jerry Parisella (D-Beverly), House chair of the Committee on Economic Development and Emerging Technologies. (A “Yes” vote is for the consolidated amendment). Rep. Paul Donato Yes Rep.

The push to construct the new home follows the deaths of 77 veteran residents last year as a result of a COVID-19 outbreak at the current facility. The House has already approved a diff erent version of the bill and a conference committee will likely hammer out a compromise version. The measure also provides $200 million to increase geographic equity and accessibility of long-term care services for Bay State veterans with a focus on areas that are not primarily served by the soldiers’ homes in Chelsea or Holyoke. The Baker Administration and House and Senate leaders are all trying to speed the bill’s passage in order to meet deadlines to apply for as much as $260 million in funding from the federal government, which would leave state taxpayers with a $140 milAttendees must pre-register at: https://biketothesea.org/event/member-meeting-5-12-21 For more info contact: Jay Cobau jay@biketothesea.org (339) 224-2448 lion bill. “Massachusetts has always been a leader for veteran services, and this bill refl ects the Senate’s deep commitment to those who have served our nation,” said Sen.

Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “The funding in this bill will ensure that we begin to rethink how we deliver care to veterans of every generation across Massachusetts,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “Ensuring that our veterans are connected to their communities is an important factor in ensuring that their physical and mental health is taken care of, and so I am proud of the steps we have taken to ensure geographic equity and accessibility, especially for our women and LGBTQ veterans, as well as veterans of color. Our quick action in passing this legislation will help ensure we maximize federal funds in this important endeavor.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes PROJECT LABOR AGREEMENT (S 2439) Senate 37-3, approved an amendment that adds Project Labor Agreement language that mandates a pre-bid, prehire collective bargaining agreement for the construction of the new Soldiers’ Home and requires the recruiting of women, minority and veteran owned businesses to participate in the design and construction of the facility. “I am proud that the Senate added additional language during our debate that strengthens the bill to reflect our commonwealth’s collective values,” said Sen. Paul Feeney (D-Foxborough), the sponsor of the amendment. “It is critical that significant taxpayer-funded projects of this scope be completed on-time and on-budget with a diverse, local, safe, welltrained and highly skilled workforce. Additionally, we should be working diligently to assist women, minority and veteran owned businesses in creating jobs and opportunities now and in the future. The bill we passed today accomplishes these goals by authorizing funding for a modern facility for our commonwealth’s veterans while expanding opportunities for many local working-class people in the construction trades.” "According to the U.S. Bureau Members of the public who wish to attend remotely can do so using the following information: You are invited to a Zoom webinar.

Lee A. Kinnon, Chairman Andrew Zeiberg, Member Frances Lin, Member May 7, 2021 of Labor Statistics, 83 percent of the construction industry is ‘open-shop’ non-union labor,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) who voted against the amendment. “A project labor agreement on a taxpayer funded project requires that only union labor be utilized, excluding 83 percent of those in the industry who are non-union even though their tax dollars also fund the project. We should allow both union and non-union workers an opportunity for employment, especially when it’s the public’s money. Project labor agreements are also known to increase the cost of taxpayer projects because of the lack of competition on who can work on said projects." “As legislators, we have the responsibility to ensure that any state contract of this magnitude—regardless of its noble and critical purpose—receives a comprehensive evaluation,” said Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton), Senate Chair of the Committee on State Administration and Regulatory Oversight. “This is especially true in times of great economic need and uncertainty, and where our failure to ensure fairness for all would risk grave consequences in other areas. I am proud to have helped shape that conversation by bringing forth important questions about regional equity, fiscal accountability and the rights of Massachusetts workers.” Senate Ways and Means chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) also voted against the amendment. "I have problems with anytime we limit competition on any sort of public construction projects,” he told the State House News Service. “I think more competition is healthier for everyone. It's better for the taxpayers." (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Jason Lewis Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session.

Page 16 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 7, 2021 OBITUARIES STEP-UP IN BASIS PROPOSED TAX LAW CHANGE sues are avoided. No need for canceled checks, settlement statements, credit card statements, invoices, etc. No need to defend oneself in an IRS audit that most likely could not be won. Therefore, in the above exP resident Biden’s proposed repeal of the step-up in basis provisions of Internal Revenue Code Section 1014, if passed by Congress, will create a sweeping change in the tax code that will aff ect millions of American taxpayers. The step-up in tax basis provisions provide for the fair market value of all assets owned or constructively owned by the taxpayer at the time of his or her death to become the new “cost basis” going forward in the hands of the recipients of those assets (e.g. surviving spouse, children, relatives, etc.) pursuant to the terms of the Last Will and Testament transfer on death account, or a Living Trust, for example. As long as the assets are includible in the taxable estate of the decedent, regardless of whether or not a federal or Massachusetts estate tax has to be paid, the step-up in basis is achieved. This provision allows for a single-family home originally purchased for $75,000 to be left to one’s children at the time of death of a parent, while creating a new cost basis in the hands of the children equal to the fair market value at the time of death. If, for example, at the time of death, the fair market value of the home is $500,000, that will be the new cost basis. The children would be able to sell the home soon thereafter for $500,000 without having to pay any capital gains tax. One of the original purposes of the legislation was to avoid the unmanageable task of requiring the children to attempt to compute the cost basis of the home by going back 50 or more years to determine the original purchase price, capital improvements, closing costs, refinance costs, etc. By establishing the fair market value as the starting point after the date of death, all of those isample, if the Biden administration proposal is passed, if one assumes there were $75,000 in improvements over the years, there would be a $350,000 capital gain. If there were two children, the federal capital gains tax would be approximately $26,250 each and the Massachusetts capital gains tax would be $8,750 each, for a total of $70,000. This is certainly an increase in taxes to be paid by a lot of middle-class taxpayers. Millions of middle-class American taxpayers currently do not have to be concerned about such a capital gains tax in these circumstances. If the tax law is changed, it will be unavoidable. What’s important is not so much whether or not you agree or disagree with abolishing the step-up in basis provisions of the tax code, but whether or not you realize this will affect just about everybody, not just the rich and famous. This will also aff ect appreciated stock that a mother or father may leave to his or her children. Even a $100,000 stock portfolio built up over years of investing may have a cost basis of only $25,000. Without the benefit of the step-up in cost basis provisions, the children, upon a later sale of the stock, will realize a $75,000 capital gain and incur a $15,000 combined federal and Mass capital gains tax. The repeal of this long-standing provision will have profound implications for millions of taxpayers, not just the wealthy. Such a repeal would also create a disaster from a taxpayer compliance standpoint as well as from an IRS enforcement standpoint. Such a new tax law would amount to nothing less than a middle-class tax hike, and this would have nothing to do with the proposed increase in the capital gains tax rate for those who earn more than $400,000 per year.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 7, 2021 Page 17 Nine Metro North communities join CHA, Tufts University to launch collaborative vaccination sites The new Metro North COVID-19 Vaccination Partnership, a consortium of nine cities, Cambridge Health Alliance (CHA) and Tufts University, recently announced that it will open three joint vaccination sites to expand COVID-19 vaccine access in the metro north area. The regional partnership was recently approved by the state Department of Public Health (DPH) as a part of its statewide network of vaccination locations. Located at CHA’s vaccination centers at 176 Somerville Ave. in Somerville and Encore Boston Harbor in Everett along with Tufts University’s Gantcher Center in Medford, the three sites will be operated and staffed by CHA, respective local Boards of Health and Tufts University, with CHA serving as the health provider for all three sites. The sites at the Gantcher Center and Encore started administering vaccines during the first week of May, and the Somerville site (which has been only accepting CHA patients with appointments) is expected to join the other two sites in the second week of May. Cities and towns participating include Arlington, Cambridge, Chelsea, Everett, Malden, Medford, Revere, Somerville and Winthrop. The Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC) is also helping to coordinate participating municipalities. “Our communities and organizations came together to help advance both the statewide vaccination effort and to bring the vaccine closer to home especially for our vulnerable residents and workers. These centers aim to help break down the barriers to vaccine access and increase vaccine equity by reducing travel, language, and mobility challenges. For all of us, being ‘in this together’ truly means combining resources and working together to beat this virus,” Partnership officials said in a joint statement. “These communities have been on the front lines of the pandemic since it first hit our region in early 2020, and are in dire need of a regional solution to increasing the rates of vaccination and building vaccine confidence,” said MAPC Director of Municipal Collaboration Mark Fine. “By banding together to get doses closer to where residents live and work, we can increase the pace of vaccinations and ensure folks have access to this critical public health resource regardless of immigration status, car ownership, English fluency, work hours, or access to health insurance.” The sites will follow CHA’s accessible and supportive vaccine clinic approach with multilingual services, welcoming signage, neighborhood-based locations and accommodations for anyone requiring seating, shelter or support as they wait. “As a community health system that serves several of the communities that were among the hardest hit during the pandemic, we are committed to doing everything we can to help local residents get and stay healthy,” said CHA CEO Dr. Assaad Sayah. “The Partnership will provide consistent and convenient access to COVID-19 vaccinations and accelerate efforts to get us past this crisis.” The Partnership applied to DPH with a proposal for the three sites combined to deliver a minimum of 750 doses per day, the threshold for approval as a mass vaccination site, with the capacVACCINATION | SEE PAGE 19 Office/Commercial Space for Lease 3 Large rooms, each with walk-in storage area.

Among the fi nal round of recipients, grants were awarded to 25 minority-owned, and 26 women-owned businesses; 24 recipients were located in Gateway Cities, and 28 businesses had not received any prior aid. “I want to express my deepest gratitude to Larry Andrews and his team at MGCC for going above and beyond in their eff orts to ensure that this important aid went to businesses located in Gateway Cities, met a demographic priority such as being minorityor women-owned, or were operating in sectors among the hardest hit during this pandemic,” said Housing and Economic Development Secretary Mike Kennealy. “In addition, I’d like to thank MGCC’s partner organizations, which include Amplify Latinx and locally the Entrepreneurship Center @ CTI with us today, who truly made this program successful because of their extensive outreach to the communities that are traditionally underrepresented.” To increase applications from underrepresented groups and achieve equitable access to funding, MGCC worked with a statewide network of local non-profits, small business technical assistance providers, and other organizations that support minority enterprises to reach businesses and entrepreneurs that would match ~Handyman Services~ •Plumbing •Electric •Ceiling Fans •Waterheaters + More Call Tom 781-324-2770 NEW LISTING - LAWRENCE RARE FIND! 38 Main St., Saugus (617) 877-4553 mangorealtyteam.com ~ Meet Our Agents ~ LAWRENCE - Multi-Family, 2 family that offers 6 rooms, 2-3 bedrooms, many new updates, fenced in yard, pool, garage, shed, driveway and more....$349,000 Fluent in Chinese, Cantonese, Italian & Spanish!

These partners include the Black Economic Council of Massachusetts (BECMA), Amplify Latinx, the Business Equity Initiative, the Massachusetts Association of Community Development Corporations (MACDC), LISC, LEAF, the African Community Economic Development of New England (ACEDONE), and the statewide Coalition for an Equitable Economy. “The success of this program was a direct result of the leadership of the Governor, Lt. Governor, and Secretary Kennealy; and the team at MGCC, who rose to the occasion to stand up a new program and deliver an unprecedented amount of relief to small businesses across Massachusetts that have been impacted by the pandemic,” said MGCC President and CEO Larry Andrews. “Also critical to this program’s success was the extensive network of partner organizations, including Amplify Latinx, for their work to reach out to businesses that serve communities of color, groups that have been disproportionately impacted by the virus, or who are traditionally at a disadvantage, and provided the necessary technical assistance through the application process.” MGCC will soon be announcing two new funding opportunities focused on small businesses. A program called Biz-M-Power will assist low-income and moderate-income entrepreneurs acquire or improve their brick-andmortar location, purchase new equipment, and other capital needs. Businesses will crowdfund through local residents, neighborhoods, community members, and other stakeholders and become eligible for matching grants. Another new program will help small businesses access tools and services to develop their digital capabilities, including social media, website development, and team collaboration. These awards have been part of a steady deployment of grants and capital funding to support economic recovery throughout Massachusetts and are a key part of the Administration’s larger strategy to assist small businesses and support an equitable economic recovery across the Commonwealth. "It is essential to recognize the signifi cance of culturally and linguistically responsive outreach to minority and underrepresented groups, which was a major contributor to the program's success,” said Amplify Latinx Executive Director Rosario Ubiera-Minaya. “These partner organizations are all well positioned and trusted by minority communities to eff ectively and quickly respond to the challenges faced by these businesses. The collaborative approach centered on the partner organizations has helped ensure that the collective work going forward is as intentional and impactful as possible. Keeping direction will position minority-owned businesses for stability and growth." In addition to this business relief program, recovery eff orts consist of MGCC Small Business Technical Assistance grants and matching grants for Community Development Financial Institutions and Community Development Corporations; the Regional Pilot Project Grant Program, which is a $5 million initiative designed to activate vacant storefronts, support regional supply chain resiliency, and create small business support networks; the $1.6 million Travel and Tourism Recovery Grant Pilot Program to promote recovery in the tourism industry; the ongoing My Local MA marketing initiative to encourage residents to support their local economies by shopping at Massachusetts businesses and attractions; and a $9.5 million eff ort underway to help 125 communities pursue locally-driven, actionable strategies to support downtown and commercial districts through the Local Rapid Recovery Planning program.
