Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE – Friday, June 21, 2019 ~ POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT ~ Julianne Orsino announces candidacy for Ward 3 City Councillor M y name is Julianne Orsino and I am running to represent Ward 3 as our next City Councillor. When you cast your vote in our municipal election, please consider carefully the future of Ward 3, Malden and our amazing community. I believe the Ward 3 community is faced with an important decision regarding the fate of the Malden Hospital site. The next Ward 3 City Councillor will have the opportunity to support strong community engagement and the vision of a resident-driven proposal or support the efforts of the current development plan for a large condominium complex. I am running for the Ward 3 City Council seat because I support the community vision. I have been working with local residents to educate the developers on the issues their proposal raises in our community ever since it was presented at the first public meeting at Beebe School. Over the years, I have brought groups of residents together to discuss the plans and share community feedback. The message from residents is a desire to see a reasonably sized affordable senior housing development, with significant open space and a historical preservation component. I fully support this vision: • Reasonably sized affordable senior housing development that does not add to rush hour traffic, nor tax our school system. This approach addresses the need to serve a growing population who has worked hard all their lives. • Significant open space that naturally ties into Fellsmere Park. • Historical marker that highlights the importance of Malden Hospital and our proud past. J& • Reliable Mowing Service • Spring & Fall Cleanups • Mulch & Edging • Sod or Seed Lawns • Shrub Planting & Trimming • Water & Sewer Repairs Joe Pierotti, Jr. Julianne Orsino As a community leader, I have been working consistently to solve real problems within the city for years. I am the co-founder of the Malden Community Action Group, Chair of the Malden Community Preservation Committee (CPC) and resident member of the Complete Streets Taskforce.

As a parent with a young child and a daughter of an aging parent, I have had to balance financial, health and social engagement for all members of my family. As a stay-at-home parent and employee of a local Malden non-profit, I know how hard it is to juggle the daily challenges of life. Supporting ideas that benefit all residents requires a thoughtful and empathetic approach. I will continue to consider multiple perspectives, apply common sense and work hard to keep Ward 3 a strong community now and in our future. As we move forward in creating solutions to the wide variety of issues impacting Ward 3 and the City of Malden, it is important Malden has leaders who engage with you, face to face. We need leaders who listen, consider and implement solutions that will benefit all residents of Ward 3 and the City of Malden. Our leaders need to be able to work productively with colleagues and residents to drive real results. We need to be able to disagree without being disagreeable. These are my strengths and I will bring them to the City Council. It is my goal to earn your trust, support and your vote this upcoming election. I look forward to meeting you as I walk Ward 3. Let’s discuss your concerns, solutions and thoughts about what is important for our Ward 3 community and Malden.

Very best regards, Julianne Orsino Malden Library to host Malden Instructions lecture and ice cream social The Malden Instructions in Historical Context Have you wondered how Maldonians became revolutionaries in the 1770s? And how political divisions with Britain – and with neighbors – rocked their world? Join us on Tuesday, June 25 at 6:30 p.m. at the Malden Public Library to explore the events in Massachusetts, Greater Boston and Malden that led up to the drafting of the Malden Instructions – our declaration of support for American Independence. Learn how Malden dealt with the siege of Boston and why we sent instructions to the Provisional Congress (and what the Provisional Congress was, anyway). This program is part of Revisiting the Founding Era, a three-year national initiative of the Gilder Lehrman Institute of American History presented in partnership with the American Library Association and the National Constitution Center, with generous support from the National Endowment for the Humanities. This program is free and open to all. Malden Public Library kicks off Summer Reading Program with Ice Cream Social Save the date!
