Human Resources Director Anthony Chiccuarelli told Finance Committee members that the city conducted a self-evaluation of its pay scales and found that salaries for six employees needed to be adjusted because of gender-based inequities. “We took it upon ourselves to do a self-assessment,” said Chiccuarelli, who added that a lot of work went into researching and analyzing city jobs and pay, and “We are the only municipality I’m aware of that has done a self-evaluation.” The Equal Pay Act urges employers to conduct self-evaluations to identify comparable positions based on the skills, knowledge, eff ort and responsibilities involved in successfully doing a job. Comparable jobs may also share similar workplace settings, potential job hazards and the hours and time of day an employee is scheduled to be at work. As part of a self-evaluation, employers examine salaries for men and women in comparable jobs and determine if pay rates are equal by comparing paychecks or by a more complicated statistical analysis that factors in other job-related information.

(Advocate Photos by Tara Vocino) City Councillors gearing up to present resident-only parking program By Barbara Taormina M alden’s citywide resident parking program, which has been years in the making, may soon be coming to a community meeting near you. The Parking Review Committee agreed this week that it’s time to present the general plan to residents, who will no doubt have some feedback and ideas to add to the mix. According to the general outline of the proposed plan, only residents who register their vehicles in Malden and who have paid excise tax bills will be able to park on city streets from 1 a.m. to 7 a.m., Monday through Friday. In addition to the overnight restrictions, parking in commuter zones surrounding the city MBTA stations will be limited to residents in those neighborhoods from 7 a.m. to 7 p.m. on weekdays. Although the general framework of the program is set, there are still outstanding questions and issues. The Parking Committee hasn’t made any decisions about student parking around Malden High and its impact on residents in that neighborhood. Although a no-fee approach is a major selling point of resident parking, the committee is looking at the possibility of charging a fee for residents in commuter zones. Parking Department Director Ron Hogan suggested a case could be made for a fee in those areas since residents will have additional protection of ensuring on-street parking is limited to neighborhood residents during the day. One of the problems with commuter-zone parking is that it will limit on-street parking at parks that fall within the zone to residents in that neighborhood. And there are still outstanding issues to tackle with visitor parking permits. Committee members agree that public meetings on the proposed plan are the next big step. “The earlier we get public feedback, the better,” said Hogan, who expects resident reactions to lead to tweaks in the program. Committee members plan on holding several meetings in different wards. In the past, public hearings have not gone well for proponents of citywide resident parking. Back in 2011, residents balked at a color-coded neighborhood sticker program with one free sticker and a $30 fee for subsequent stickers. The proposal called for stiff fi nes for residents who parked outside their color zone after 11 p.m. At a 2016 public hearing on a revised version of that plan, residents objected to a possible $50 sticker fee and the notion that stickers would boost public safety by allowing police to identify nonresidents who were parked in the city after 11 p.m. Residents called the plan restrictive, intrusive and a “big-brother type of thing.” The closest resident-parking proponents came to mustering community support was a limited and confusing 2017 ballot question that asked voters if they favored the expansion of resident-only parking. Malden residents cast 2,824 votes in favor of more resident-only parking, and 3,087 votes against it. Although Malden residents may be warming up to the idea of resident-only parking, the community’s opposition to various proposals hasn’t been the deciding factor in keeping parking restrictions at bay. Prior to 2017, parking PARKING | SEE PAGE 16

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 3 Search for a new city clerk moves forward By Barbara Taormina C ity clerks play wide-ranging and prominent roles in local government, and the City Council is taking care to ensure they find the right clerk for Malden. This week, councillors agreed to have City Council President Jadeane Sica and Human Resources Department Director Anthony Chiccuarelli wade through the 26 resumes of people who applied to replace City Clerk Tom Brennan, who announced earlier this year that he plans to retire. Sica and Chiccuarelli will then send a list of six or seven of the most qualifi ed candidates to the City Council’s Personnel and Appointments Committee, which will hold interviews and discussions that will whittle down the list to several fi nalists. But not all councillors felt that was the best way to go. Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson said the entire process, including the preliminary screening of applicants, should be done by the Personnel Committee and other councillors who opt to attend those meetings. “This is a City Council appointment and we all have a deep interest in it,” said Matheson, adding that any narrowing of the fi eld should be done by the committee and other councillors rather than by one councillor and Chiccuarelli. But Sica said it was important to protect the privacy of applicants who are working at othSen. Lewis recognized as a 2019 Community Health Center Champion er jobs. Holding a meeting to conduct a preliminary screening, even if it’s done in executive session or behind closed doors, would lead to the names of all applicants becoming part of the public record. Generally, names of applicants are not released until those individuals are selected as fi nalists for the job. Sica also said that not everyone who applied had a full understanding of the city clerk’s role or the background and qualifi cations for the job. “They see the word clerk when they are applying for these jobs, and some of them are store clerks who have absolutely no experience to be a clerk for a municipality,” she said. In addition to serving as clerk for the City Council and overseeing agendas, minutes and official council notifications, the city clerk manages the offi ce which maintains Malden’s CLERK | SEE PAGE 17 Shown from left to right are James W.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 ~ Political Announcement ~ Page 5 Ryan O'Malley announces reelection bid for ward 4 councillor T he Committee to Elect Ryan O’Malley is happy to announce that Ryan has decided to seek another term representing Malden’s fourth ward on the City Council. Although Ryan has only been on the City Council a short time, he has been able to work collaboratively with his colleagues and community groups to bring transformative change to the City of Malden. On the changes occurring in Malden, Ryan said, “we are seeing the rapid revitalization of Malden Center, the rebirth of our artist community, and a renewed interest in our local government. Each and every member of the Malden community has helped us achieve what we have been waiting so long for – the Golden Age of Malden.” While on the City Council, Ryan has focused his eff orts on: • Improving critical public infrastructure (water and gas pipes) • Bringing transparency and increased access to local government (executive session meeting records) • Increasing civic participation (public comment) • Homeownership and housing aff ordability (Habitat for Humanity and the Community Preservation Committee) • Creating more public art and open space throughout Malden (the ArtLine and the Malden River Greenway) Public Infrastructure Early on in his public service, Ryan became aware of the fact that Malden has the highest percentage of lead water pipes in the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. It has since become clear that our water and sewer systems have been subjected to decades of neglect and deferred mainproposal to invest over $250k from the Community Development Block Grant for pedestrian improvements to our sidewalks. This eff ort has been celebrated by Malden’s seniors who appreciate level and well maintained sidewalks. As part of the natural gas main Ryan O’Malley Ward 4 Councillor tenance. Through his advocacy and persistence the City of Malden has stepped up the replacement of lead pipes to more than 233 annually. When National Grid chose to lock out qualified gas workers, Ryan was on the front line demanding that public safety not be jeopardized in the name of corporate greed. Ryan documented various natural gas incidents on Main Street and submitted testimony to the Joint Committee on Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy of the Massachusetts House and Senate. By working with Mayor Gary Christenson, Ryan was able to have National Grid agree to immediately replace over 1.13 miles of gas mains on and around Main Street that were over 100 years old! Roadways and Sidewalks Ryan was proud to support the eff orts of Mayor Christenson and Ward 1 Councillor Peg Crowe to pass Malden’s Complete Streets policy which has positioned the City to receive an additional $400k grant annually for road and sidewalk work from the Commonwealth. This work focuses on making our congested roads safer for motorists, pedestrians, and cyclists. Ryan has also supported Councillor Stephen Winslow’s replacement on Main Street, the road will be entirely resurfaced in the Late Summer/Fall of 2019. All sidewalks will be brought up to code to meet ADA requirements and all lead pipes have been removed as part of the holistic infrastructure improvement project. Another major success has been the approval of the Exchange Street revitalization project that is fully funded through $1.7m in State and Federal funds. This project was a collaboration between the entire legislative delegation, represented by Senator Jason Lewis, Reps Steven Ultrino, Paul Donato, and Paul Brodeur, the City of Malden represented by Councillor O’Malley, Mayor Christenson, and the Executive Director of the MRA Deborah Burke. Government Transparency and Civic Participation As the Chair of the Rules and Ordinance Committee, Ryan worked closely with then Council President Debbie DeMaria to create the fi rst ever public comment period at City Council meetings. As a result of this initiative the public is now welcome to come and speak on any issue before the City Council. Ryan has also had to make tough decisions on how to make the City Council comply with the Open Meeting and Public Records Laws of the Commonwealth. After years of inaction on the proper review and approval of “closed MATV to host annual Open House Showcase lease join us for any part of MATV’s 13th Annual Open House Showcase – a live TV show, webcast, YouTube LIVE event, and Open House!

Thai, who is selftaught, uses cotton and silk to make the design and an embroidery needle to sew the materials together. She constructs the photo frames herself. “Since I can’t fi x it, I have to be precise and it takes time, but it comes out beautifully,” Thai said. “But art comes naturally and it is calming for me.” Those in attendance were amazed at Thai’s precise skill. The school’s Principal Lisa Cenca called it a hidden talent and thanked the Immigrant Learning Center for unveiling such a beautiful skill. “No one notices the needle points,” Cenca said. “No one can believe it.” School facilities worker Sal DiCato, who fi shes for carp daily, purchased a portrait that Thai made of two carp with a light fl ower as a symbol of his growing family. Thai said it took her two months to assemble the piece. “They’re trying for their second child, so I related this image of these two fi sh as my two grandchildren — seeing into the future,” DiCato said. Are they paintings? Mayor Gary Christenson said he asked Thai how long it took her to paint the portrait, which is actually embroidery. He said these events make him proud to be mayor. “I thank the artist for all she’s Lawnmower Tune-Up and Repairs • We repair all makes & models! • Authorized 1039 Broadway, Revere • (781) 289-6466 www.bikersoutfitter.com SABATINOINSURANCE AGENCY Call for a Quote 617-387-7466 Or email Rocco@sabatino-ins.com We cover: * Auto * Home * Boat * Renter * Condo * Life * Multi-Policy Discounts * Commercial 10% Discounts * Registry Service Also Available Dealer • FREE PICK-UP for all Tune-Ups!

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 9 Mystic Valley Elder Services’ consumers benefi t from donation of goods from Comcast M ystic Valley Elder Services (MVES) consumers recently received an unexpected but joyous visit from their care managers, who delivered care baskets full of canned and boxed goods, clothing, linens, towels, toiletries, games, books and other items that the consumers could use. The baskets were donated by a group of employees at Comcast in Malden as part of Comcast Cares Day (May 4), which is a longstanding company tradition that embodies Comcast’s culture of giving back. Since it began in 2001, Comcast employees, along with their friends and families and Comcast’s local community partners, have helped grow Comcast Cares Day into a global program across 23 countries. It is one of the largest corporate commitments to volunteerism. To date, more than one million Comcast Cares Day volunteers have contributed over six million service hours to improve local communities.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 13 POLITICAL | FROM PAGE 5 a formal process for the review and approval of executive session meeting minutes. Homeownership and Housing Aff ordability Before Ryan joined the Council in 2016, close to 1,000 residential units had been recently permitted or approved by the City Council to be built in Malden Center. Even today we still see these previously approved buildings under construction. Unfortunately, while Malden has seen a large amount of residential construction downtown, the fact is that not a single unit built in the recent past is owner occupied or aff ordable. Ryan has made a commitment to encouraging owner occupied projects that bring homeownership opportunities and that strengthen the fi nancial security and fabric of our community. Whether you are a senior looking to age in place as you downsize, or a young person or family looking for your fi rst home, Malden should be able to provide these vital housing options. On the cost of housing, Ryan believes “It is no secret that housing costs in Malden are steadily increasing. On the one hand, the appreciation of home values brings additional wealth to our community, but it also brings higher real estate taxes, higher rents, higher insurance premiums, and a devastating homelessness crisis like we’ve never seen before.” Ryan supports the eff orts of Mass Senior Action Council to pass an Inclusionary Zoning ordinance in Malden to make sure that new projects include a percentage of moderately and aff ordably priced units so that our residents can continue to aff ord to live in Malden. As the proud owner of his family home, Ryan understands the stability that homeownership can provide. Ryan has worked to encourage projects that advance homeownership like the Habitat for Humanity homes currently being built on Main Street across from the Forestdale Cemetery. The Arts Ryan has worked tirelessly with various community groups on arts and culture initiatives that have helped mobilize the arts community in Malden. In 2016, Ryan was one of the creators of the Malden Pops Up! Holiday Arts and Crafts marketplace on Main Street. This project transformed a vacant commercial property, in a highly visible area, into a thriving artist marketplace that metamorphosed into the Gallery and is currently being reborn again into a city wide performance series organized by Malden Creates. While he was on the board of Malden Arts, the signature goal of the organization was the preparation, funding, and development of the ArtLine. The ArtLine is a community funded outdoor art gallery and exhibition space spanning the entire length of Malden’s Northern Strand Trail. When complete it will feature numerous professional murals, sculptures, and performance/gathering spaces. The fi rst mural of the ArtLine is located at Fitzgerald Park on Exchange Street and is dedicated to Malden born illustrator Ed Emberley. The second mural has been designed by Malden born artist Frank Stella and will be located on the Holden Street hockey rink. Open space As a former Park Ranger with the Massachusetts Department of Conservation and Recreation (MDC/DCR), Ryan has a long history of being a dedicated steward of public parkland. As Councillor, Ryan has worked closely with the Friends of the Malden River, the Mystic River Watershed Association, MIT, FMRA, MAPC, and the City of Malden on the creation of the Malden River Greenway. Ryan is determined to work with the partners mentioned above, the Federal Government, and the Commonwealth of Massachusetts to make sure that the People of Malden get what we deserve – a clean and accessible Malden River. As the founding member, Ryan also serves as chair of the City Council’s Community Forestry Program Advisory Committee, which is tasked with drafting an updated plan to increase the tree canopy of Malden. A healthy tree canopy helps reduce air pollution, reduces energy consumption for air-conditioning by reducing temperatures during the summer and improves the overall quality of life in our community. Under Ryan’s direction one of Malden’s most used parks, Coytemore Lea (next to the Holland Memorial Pool), has received over $250k in capital improvements through the Community Development Block Grant. In 2016, a sensory garden was installed through a collaboration with Partnership for Community Schools, and in 2017 a new pathway made the park accessible to all users. This year new light poles will be installed to ensure public safety and accessibility. When asked why he is seeking another term Ryan said, “while SCHOOL | FROM PAGE 12 Raycraft holds a Bachelor of Science in Sports Management from Springfield College. He later received a Bachelor of Science in Physical Education with K-12 Teacher Certifi cation from Plymouth State University, and he is currently pursuing a Master of Science in Education from the University of New England. He is a member of the National Interscholastic Athletic Administrators Association, a Registered a lot of progress has been made over the last few years there is still so much work to be done. Whether it is rooting out decades of entrenched corruption, or advocating for the proactive replacement of century old gas mains and water pipes, I am prepared to get my hands dirty for the betterment of Malden. It is with that in mind that I humbly ask for your continued support and for your vote of confi dence on Election Day – Tuesday, November 5, 2019.” The Committee to Elect Ryan O’Malley invites the Malden community to join us at Ryan’s campaign kickoff Thursday, June 6, 2019 6 PM – 8 PM at Hugh O’Neill’s, 45 Pleasant Street, Malden.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 ~ OP-ED ~ Facts About Our Water System and Water Bills I write in response to the Mayor’s Op Ed “Matheson misleading voters.” 05/03/19. There he falsely claims that I advocate for a “do nothing approach” with no concern for clean and safe drinking water for future generations. I am pleased to have brought attention to our water/sewer billing, and to have our practices fully explained to the residents we serve. This is how elections hold us accountable. The Mayor and I agree that Malden’s water infrastructure is in terrible condition and needs to be fi xed. In fact, Malden has the most lead pipes per person in the state, and is one of only fi ve communities to exceed the federal lead action level. We also have water mains that leak, and some fi re hydrants that don’t work. Regardless, Malden residents deserve to know how they are being billed. Until now, most thought they were paying for their actual water consumption. After all, in 2013 the Mayor asked the Council to authorize him to hold a 5% reserve in the water/ sewer account, or about $1.2 million. Today this surplus nears $9 million, or roughly $700 per rate payer. I know how this can affect a family. It may mean their college student’s text books, or daughter’s dance class, or even replacing that worn out piece of furniture. After creating one of the largest such surpluses in the state, from one of the lowest income communities, we should have made great progress over the last 8 years. The last water main project, which began in 2012, will fi nally be completed in 2019, many millions over budget and many years over schedule – the very benchmarks of good management. In 2016, the Dept. of Environmental Protection cited Malden for deficiencies under the Mayor’s control, and then ordered the removal of all lead pipes. We are now replacing lead pipes, but at a pace that will take another 13 years to complete. We can do better. Our water supplier, the Mass. Water Resource Authority (“MWRA”), offers zero interest loans to replace old water mains. There is adequate funding from these loans, and up to $1 million per year of state Ch. 90 road funds, to fi nance this work without a water rate increase on our resWATER | SEE PAGE 16 Annual Chamber of Commerce Taste of Malden a great success Shown from left to right are Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow, Gourmet sponsor Robert Shapiro and Chamber of Commerce Attorney George Shapiro – there was a wonderful selection of food options at the recent Taste of Malden hosted by the Chamber of Commerce Mayor Gary Christenson samples bread from the Piantedosi Baking Company with Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson.

Malden won another one this week, 4-1 over Salem, to improve to a solid 6-2 overall this year. The Golden Tornadoes need one more match victory to qualify for the MIAA State Team Tennis Tournament. “We are continuing to get great contributions from everyone.

But now the city has a Parking Department with a director, supervisor, clerk and several dozen full- and part-time enforcement offi cers with vehicles, technology and a $25,000 overtime budget, all poised to make resident parking a reality.

We should also coordinate water main replacement with gas pipe replacements to share the cost of road resurfacing with National Grid. To the extent additional funds are needed, we can look to the uncommitted $1 million per year Malden is receiving from the casino. The MWRA also off ers zero interest loans to replace lead water service lines. To qualify a city must submit a plan to also help residents replace their private lead water service pipe under their front yard. To date, the Mayor has not done so.

Malden was back in action today (after press deadline), hosting Northeastern Conference (NEC) rival Saugus at Macdonald Stadium in Malden at 4:00 p.m. While city councillors have long cast resident-only parking as a quality of life issue, they also acknowledge it’s a moneymaker. Ward 2 Councillor Paul Condon hopes to have a resident-only program in place soon to begin collecting what he estimates is between a half and three-quarters of a million dollars in uncollected excise tax. “That’s from people parking overnight who don’t have their cars registered in Malden,” he said. private property occur because the City Council passed an ordinance requiring replacement when a home sells. I would expand that policy to all current homeowners, by helping them receive a clean pipe today, and reimburse the city at a later refi - nance or sale. This plan would reverse the surplus back to the residents. It would also reduce the total cost by replacing more public and private sides of the water lines at the same time while the ground is open. This plan would also allow residents to keep more of their money while fi nancing the expedited replacement of 100% of Malden’s lead pipes. Councilor John Matheson

Sica said allowing herself and SALARY | FROM PAGE 1 also a practical move for the city. Employers who conduct reasonable self-evaluations and take steps to correct gender-based pay inequities can use those factors as a defense against lawsuits brought under the Equal Pay Act. Employers who have not done self-assessments and are found to have violated the equal pay law may be liable for double the amount of wages owed to an employee as well as attorney’s fees and court costs. “The self-assessment was not meant to cure every problem,” Chiccuarelli told the Finance Committee. “It was strictly based on correcting gender pay disparities.” Chiccuarelli did not name any of the six employees who are due raises, although he did mention that the group was made up of fi ve women and one man. Finance Committee members did, however, learn which city departments are in line for transfers from the city’s salary reserves. The Legal Department will receive $14,142 for a salary adjustment; $11,852 will go to an employee in Mayor Gary Christenson’s offi ce; and $9,939 will be added to the salary account for the Information Technology Department. An employee Chiccuarelli to conduct an initial screening would weed out applicants who are not the right fi t and move the process forward. And she assured fellow councillors that they could review all applications on fi le at the Human Resources Department and advocate for anyone who seems like the right choice. Councillors, including Ward 1’s Peg Crowe, who is chair of the Personnel Committee, supported Sica’s screening proposal. “We should let them read through and find the ones in the Planning, Inspections and Permitting Services Department will receive $9,905; the Public Facilities Department will have $3,738 to even out its salaries; and $2,785 will be used to adjust the salary of a Board of Health employee. who aren’t qualifi ed,” said Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy. “We have someone who is paid to do this job,” she added, referring to Chiccuarelli. Councillor-at-Large Stephen Winslow agreed and stressed that councillors have the option of reviewing all applications and doing their own screening. “Individual councillors can do a double-check, and that gives me the confi dence that what gets to the Personnel and Appointments Committee will be a strong set of candidates,” he said. Chiccuarelli said the transfers will cover retroactive wages from July 1, 2018, the date the state’s Equal Pay Act went into effect. Moving forward, the adjusted salaries will be worked into the city’s annual budget. ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Middlesex Probate and Family Court 208 Cambridge Street Cambridge, MA 02141 (617) 768-5800 Docket No. MI19C0256CA In the matter of: Harriet Namubiru Kasozi CITATION ON PETITION TO CHANGE NAME A Petition to Change Name of Adult     Harriet Namubiru Kasozi of Malden, MA requesting that the court enter a Decree changing their name to Harriet Joy Kasozi.

We recently had to move my 86-year-old father – who served in the army nearly 60 years ago – into an assisted living facility, and my mom isn’t far behind. Can the VA help? Seeking Aid Dear Seeking, The Veterans Administration does indeed have a little-known, underutilized benefit that can help wartime veterans and their surviving spouses pay for a variety of long-term care costs. This benefit, called “Aid and Attendance,” is a special pension that’s paid in addition to a basic pension. It pays a maximum of $2,230 a month to married veterans; $1,881 a month to single veterans; or $1,209 a month to a surviving spouse. The money is tax free, and can be used to pay for in-home care, assisted living and nursing home care. Today, only around 230,000 veterans and survivors receiving Aid and Attendance, but millions more are eligible and either don’t know about it, or don’t think they can qualify for it. Eligibility Requirements To qualify, your dad must have served at least 90 days of active military service with at least one day of service during a period of war, and not have been discharged dishonorably. Single surviving spouses of wartime vets are eligible if their marriage ended due to death. In addition, your dad will also have to meet certain thresholds for medical and fi nancial need to be eligible. To qualify medically he must be either disabled, or over the age of 65 and need help with basic everyday living tasks such as eating, dressing, bathing or going to the bathroom. Being blind or in a nursing home or assisted living facility due to mental disability also qualifi es him. Single surviving spouses have no age restrictions, but they must require help with basic everyday living tasks to be eligible. To qualify fi nancially, your parents must have limited assets, under $127,061, excluding their home, vehicle and personal belongings. And their annual income (minus medical and longterm care expenses) cannot exceed the Maximum Allowable Pension Rate (MAPR), which in 2019 is $26,766 for a veteran and their spouse; $22,577 for a single veteran; and $14,509 for a surviving spouse. To calculate your parent’s income qualifications, add up their income over the past year (including Social Security, pensions, interest income from investments, annuities, etc.), minus any out-of-pocket medical expenses, prescription drugs, insurance premiums and long-term care costs over that same period of time. If the fi nal tally is under the MAPR, and he meets the other requirements, he should be eligible for aid. How to Apply To learn more, or to apply for Aid and Attendance, contact your regional VA benefi t offi ce (see Benefi ts.va.gov/benefi ts/offi ces.asp or call 800–827–1000) where you can apply in person. You can also apply by writing the Pension Management Center for your state (see Benefi ts.va.gov/ pension/resources-contact.asp). You’ll need to include evidence, like VA Form 21-2680 (VA.gov/vaforms) which your dad’s doctor can fi ll out that shows his need for Aid and Attendance. If you need some help, you can appoint a Veteran Service Officer (VSO), a VA-accredited attorney or claims agent to represent your dad. See www.ebenefi ts.va.gov/ebenefi ts/vso-search to locate someone. If your dad is eligible, it will take between six and 12 months for his application to be processed, so be patient. You should also know that if your dad’s Aid and Attendance application is approved, the VA will send a lump sum retroactive payment covering the time from the day you fi led the application until the day it was approved. Then your dad receives monthly payments going forward. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.

Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible 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 April 29-May 3, the House met for a total of one hour and 40 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 37 minutes. Mon.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, May 10, 2019 Page 19 Special Report Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen LEGISLATURE VOTES TO TAX MILLIONAIRES ANOTHER 4 PERCENT (H 86) The House and Senate held a constitutional convention and approved 156-37, (House approved 121-33, Senate approved 35-4), a proposed constitutional amendment that would allow a graduated income tax in Massachusetts and impose an additional 4 percent income tax, in addition to the current fl at 5.1 percent one, on taxpayers’ earnings of more than $1 million. Language in the amendment requires that “subject to appropriation” the revenue will go to fund quality public education, affordable public colleges and universities, and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. The proposal is sponsored by Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester) and Rep. James O’Day (D-West Boylston). In order to go on the ballot for voters to decide, it needs to twice have the votes of 101 of the 200 members of the House and Senate in the current 20192020 session and again in the 2021-2022 session. The earliest it could be on the ballot is in November 2022. A similar eff ort by a group called the “Raise Up Coalition” to get the question on the 2018 ballot was derailed when it was ruled unconstitutional by the Supreme Judicial Court which said the constitution prohibits placing more than one objective in a single proposed constitutional amendment that is sought by a citizens’ group. The court’s decision noted that the proposal imposed the tax and then stipulates how the money could be spent. The current amendment is proposed by legislators rather than citizens and according to proponents, amendments proposed by legislators can have more than one objective and would not be ruled unconstitutional by the court. There was no debate on the proposal and no amendments were considered despite eff orts by GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (RNorth Reading) to propose one. Jones said that Senate President Karen Spilka, who presided over the convention, was intent on gaveling through the proposal quickly and defl ected his attempts to offer an amendment. Jones said his amendment would have required that revenue from the new tax be spent in addition to funds already directed toward education and transportation, and not simply replace those funds. Jones was clearly unhappy with the procedure. "You know what it is?” Jones told the State House News Service. “You can quote me. It's bu**sh**. That's what it is.” Senate President Karen Spilka said there will be debate and the opportunity to propose amendments when the proposal is debated again on June 12. Supporters say the amendment will aff ect only 20,000 extremely wealthy individuals and will generate up to $2 billion annually in additional tax revenue. They argue that using the funds for education and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation will benefi t millions of Bay State taxpayers. They note the hike would help lower income families which are now paying a higher share of their income in taxes. Opponents argue the new tax will result in the loss of 9,500 private sector jobs, $405 million annually in personal disposable income and some millionaires moving out of state. They say that the earmarking of the funds for specific projects is illegal and said all the funds will go into the General Fund and be up for grabs for anything. “The new revenue that would be raised by the Fair Share Amendment would go a long way in helping to fix crumbling roads and bridges, improving service on the MBTA and other public transportation, increasing funding for public schools, expanding access to quality early childhood education, and making higher education more aff ordable for students and families,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (DWinchester), the Senate sponsor of the proposal. “It’s also the best way to raise revenue that would make our tax system fairer and more progressive, rather than increasing taxes on middle class families who cannot aff ord to pay more. I’m pleased that the Legislature’s action today moves the Fair Share Amendment one step closer to the ballot.” “The Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MFA) stands with the voters, who on fi ve separate occasions voted against making Massachusetts a graduated income tax state, and with the state’s highest court which recently rejected a similar scheme as unconstitutional,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the MFA. “Some lawmakers think history started in 2019, but this policy idea is the most rejected in the state’s history. The answer should always be ‘no,’ when considering removing our constitutionally protected guarantees of equal taxation.” “Community, faith, and labor groups all across Massachusetts strongly support the Fair Share Amendment because it’s the most fair, progressive and sustainable way to raise the major new revenue Massachusetts needs to invest in transportation and public education,” said Andrew Farnitano, the spokesman for Raise Up Massachusetts. “We thank the Legislature for moving the Fair Share Amendment forward today.” "If there was ever any doubt that the Legislature would expedite the scheme to tax more, today's brief constitutional convention dispelled it," said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. "It took longer to call the convention to order than to actually vote on and advance the so-called ‘Millionaire's Tax,’ Ford added. "A whopping billion dollars in excess revenue above last April's haul poured into state coff ers just last month alone but that’s still not enough for the ‘spendoholics’ on Beacon Hill.
