(Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) Malden schools confront racial inequity By Barbara Taormina M alden has taken some significant steps towards ensuring racial equity and inclusion in city schools. In his report to the School Committee this week, Superintendent John Oteri described a list of strategies and programs the district has adopted to address racial bias and discrimination. The school district’s struggles with discrimination and racial inequity were brought to the forefront over the summer by Malden Community Organizing for Racial Equity (MaldenCORE). The group organized downtown rallies and proposed a slate of reforms that include hiring more teachers of color to reflect the diversity of the student population, providing ongoing antiracism and cultural competency training for teachers and staff $3.39 $2.40 GALLON GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 and expanding the curriculum to include more material related to the many cultures represented by students. Although members of MaldenCORE acknowledged there have been some attempts to address racism and racial inequity in city schools, it’s not clear if the extent of those efforts is widely known and understood. “I’ve been working on this since I got here,” said Oteri, who CONFRONT | SEE PAGE 7 acre hospital site. “As CEO of MelroseWakefield Healthcare, I am writing to let you know that we have concluded our relationship with the Fellsmere Housing Group and will no longer be pursuing their proposal for the site, as we have seen and heard neighbors’ concerns about density and traffic,” wrote Sandberg. “We are evaluating options for future use of the site, and we will re-engage with the community and initiate dialogue as we move forward,” she added. Sandberg’s letter marks a new direction for the health care organization, which signed a purchase and sales agreement with the Fellsmere Group in 2014 and, until this week, has supported the group’s proposal to build a mix of 18 single-family homes, 18 town houses and 214 condos on the site, which is located primarily in Malden with a small section of the parcel stretching into North Medford. Since landing in Malden, Fellsmere Housing Group faced a series of roadblocks beginning with the city’s moratorium on residential development, which forced the developers to sit on their proposal for two years. When they were finally able to pursue their plan, they found limited support for the zoning changes needed to move forward with the project. Once the hospital building comes down, the site will revert to residential zoning for single family homes. The City Council rejected a call to send a rezoning proposal to the Ordinance Committee to begin a review that might ultimately open the door to the project. Meanwhile, the Planning Board voted against MelroseWakefield’s three applications for approval of a preliminary subdivision plan for the site, which were filed on behalf of the developer. And the Fellsmere Housing Group faced other hurdles. Over the past five years, residents have turned up the volume on calls for limits on residential housing projects that would increase traffic and density and put pressure on existing infrastructure and city schools and services. Many residents have also become more vigilant about protecting and preserving the city’s few remaining parcels of open space. More recently, the city has focused on the need to develop more affordable housing, and Fellsmere Housing Group’s proposal did not include any affordable units. In her letter, Sandberg did not mention the many obstacles Fellsmere Housing Group faced in pursuing its proposal. Instead, she emphasized MelroseWakefield Healthcare’s commitment to the health and well-being of the communities it serves. And unlike the past, when it declined to give community advocates a seat at the table to discuss an alternative plan for the hospital site, MelroseWakefield Healthcare is now listening. “We look forward to working collaboratively with you and our neighbors on the future of the Malden Hospital site,” Sandberg said.

Page 2 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 Ward 8 votes next Tuesday in the city’s only preliminary election By Barbara Taormina W ard 8 voters will cast ballots next Tuesday to decide the preliminary election for the Ward 8 seat on the school committee. Incumbent John Froio, who is seeking a seventh term on the committee, is facing challenges from Rachel Running and Amy Friedman, who are both first-time candidates for elected office. Voting for residents in both Precinct 1 and 2 will take place at the Linden School from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. While the three candidates in this race agree on some of the major issues, they have different priorities and goals they would like to pursue as members of the School Committee. John H. Froio John Froio, a retired vocational and instructional technology teacher who taught in Malden Amy Friedman for 28 years, would like to see the school district rebuild its vocational programs. “For the past 12 years we’ve been cutting positions and programs,” he said. “Malden High is supposed to be a comprehensive high school, and to be comprehensive I think we should restore some of the voke programs instead of sending our students to Northeast Metro Tech in Wakefield.” Froio believes that vocational and technical courses that offer the chance to learn a real-life marketable skill keep some John Froio students on track and prevent them from dropping out. He also believes tech classes could benefit all students, including those who plan to go on to college. “Everyone should know something about how to fix a car,” he said. Froio would also like to see the district expand its business and arts programs. “And I would like to see them return to project-based learning,” said Froio, who has a background in curriculum development and feels offering student Rachel Running the chance for hands-on experience with real-life challenges is an effective way to teach. As co-chair of the school committee’s budget subcommittee, Froio’s focus has been on providing resources to the district’s classrooms and ensuring that there are enough teachers to maintain reasonable class sizes. Froio supports the recent calls for more diversity among the district’s teachers to better reflect the diversity among the student population. “The superintendent is working towards that,” he said. “But we can’t just do it overnight.” Like his two challengers, Froio thinks natural grass is the best solution for Roosevelt Field, but he acknowledges there are some problems with drainage at the site. Rachel Elizabeth Running Rachel Running, the communications coordinator for the Massachusetts AFL–CIO, said she was inspired to run for a seat on the committee because of her two children who are new to Malden schools. And as a parent of two Malden students, she feels the school department needs to improve the way it communicates with families. “I think one major issue is transparency in decisions that are made,” she said. Running said parents often find out about decisions and changes after the fact. She pointed to this year’s changes in the afterschool program as an example. Like Froio, Running feels the district should expand its vocational and technical education programs to give student the chance to explore different career pathways. “We need to make sure that students are counseled on college, apprenticeships and the trades,” she said. “We need to make sure they know their options.” Running supports increasing diversity among the district’s teachers but acknowledges it could be a challenge. She feels the district needs to explore ways to encourage Malden High graduates of color who are pursuing careers in education to come back to the district as educators. Running also supports restorative justice practices that would replace school disciplinary measures with dialogs that would give students who are victims in conflicts a chance to explain how they have been harmed, while those who are responsible for that harm would have a chance to make things right. Like other parents, Running believes fresh air and exercise has a positive effect on a child’s ability to learn. She supports protecting recess and exploring the possibility of expanding it. Running feels a natural grass surface is beneficial and probably the best option for Roosevelt Park. Amy Friedman A native Nebraskan, Amy Friedman moved to Malden two years ago and devoted most of her time to caring for her son, who suffered a traumatic brain injury as a toddler. But that child is now thriving at the Beebe School, and Friedman, who practiced law for 25 years, feels as a member of the School Committee she can return to the focus of her legal career, which was advocating for children. Friedman’s campaign has focused on several issues drawn from her personal experience. “Accessibility issues are a concern and I think we need to look at how our kids are getting to and from school,” said Friedman, who has called for improved transportation for special needs students. She also supports adding swimming and water safety to physical education classes for students with special needs and installing bathrooms in special needs classrooms. “I would also like to see more art, drama and music in our schools,” she said. And she wonders if the district has the resources to support programs for advanced students. Friedman volunteers at the Beebe School Library for two days a week and supports hiring more librarians and making better use of school libraries. “I would also love to pay teachers more but unfortunately, we have to work with the budget we have,” she added. She supports increasing diversity among Malden educators but feels it may be difficult to find candidates for those jobs. She does, however, think the district can do better reaching out to a diverse community of students and families. “Effectively communicating with a diverse population is something I think we can improve,” she said. Friedman supports a natural grass field at Roosevelt Park if it possible, but she also acknowledges the field has significant problems with drainage.

In comparison Malden has 90% higher concentration per square mile than Everett, the city with the next highest concentration. It is critical to understand that 56% of those living in Malden apartments are considered “financially burdened,” adding apartments of any sort, even before adding “Inclusionary Zoning”, will only increase poverty concentration, in a city with an already higher concentration than all its neighbors. The grave impacts studied by federal Housing and Urban Development (HUD) are below. Malden is becoming a more economically disadvantaged city when compared to the State and its neighbors.

Malden had a median household income equal to 93% of the State median. By 2018 it had plummeted to 80.6% of the State median. During the same timeframe, the “inner core” Greater Boston communities went the opposite direction and household income increased to 105% of the State median. Only Revere has declined more than Malden. Malden Public Schools “Economically Disadvantaged” (Dept. of Education) population increased 50%, from 30% to 45% between 1994 and 2018. This trend has severe consequences to the health of any school system. Its increase is directly tied to the increasing level of apartment units the city has constructed and its declining homeownership rate. Since 1970, Malden owner-occupied housing declined to below 40%, from nearly 50% in 1970. No city in the entire State which is not abutting the City of Boston directly is below 40%. The state average owner occupied percentage is a little above 60%. Malden needs to ensure to homeowners, the backbone of any community, that their commitment to invest in the City is rewarded equitably. In Malden home price increases have not kept pace in the long term. Malden home values grew only 155%, from 1990-2017, while the inner core average growth was 200%. Had Malden kept pace, percentage wise, the average homeowner, who bought in 1990, would have $75,000 more equity in their home. According to Federal agency HUD (Housing and Urban Development), and every study ever conducted on poverty concentration, people residing in areas of high poverty concentration suffer; higher crime rates, higher delinquency, lower educational achievement, more psychological distress and a myriad of other health issues. As a result HUD and all experts who have studied the issue agree that greater dispersion to areas of more socio-economic balance is critical. Malden elected officials in favor of more apartments and “Inclusionary Zoning,” perhaps well intentioned, are pushing policies which will further increase the concentration of poor in Malden, a city with an already high concentration, a city which has done more than its share in addressing the regional issue. Such an action will penalize long term homeowners, residents and our school aged children most, and simply put more people into an already high poverty concentration area. In closing, one must realize to ask Malden to take on more is not fair nor equitable, we are a city, which is once again being taken advantage of by its regional neighbors in what MAPC and state “expert” planners deem a regional challenge, but keep coming back to the same communities to take on. It is time Malden officials look after the long term health of Malden not the region. Signed, Neil Kinnon Former Ward Six City Councilor 11 Spruce St., Malden

The Teacher Diversification Program helps districts develop recruitment strategies to increase the diversity of its classroom teachers. The program also includes training on identifying bias for new teachers and administrators. The Influence 100 grant helps districts retain administrators of color by providing funding to support those who are interested in pursuing positions in higher administration, particularly jobs as school superCONFRONT | SEE PAGE 17 SNOW BLOWER SALES, SERVICE & REPAIRS Pickup/Delivery Available Mayor Gary Christenson recently attended the Grand Opening celebration of the Nana Bee store located at 13 Pleasant St. The business specializes in beauty supplies along with Swarovski and Pandora jewelry.

Follow the change of Malden from its agrarian roots to the city we know today. The lecture is free and will be held at the Malden Public Library (36 Salem St.). For more information, contact the Library at 781-324-0218 or visit the website: www.maldenpubliclibrary.org. This lecture is part of Go Local: Converse 2020, an ongoing series celebrating the life and philanthropic contributions of Malden’s first Mayor, Elisha Slade Converse, and the industrial history of Malden. Go Local is brought to Malden with federal funds provided by the Institute of Museum and Library Services and administered by the Massachusetts Board of Library Commissioners. The series will continue through Elisha Converse’s 200th Birthday on July 28, 2020. Friends of Fellsmere Heights set a date to present their plan for Malden Hospital site By Barbara Taormina or the Friends of Fellsmere Heights (FoFH), the timing of the announcement that MelroseWakefield Healthcare and Fellsmere Housing Group have ended their relationship couldn’t have been better. The Friends have been gearing F up for Oct. 2, when they will join their partners from the Gateway Initiative Program of Boston Architectural College (BAC) to present a community-inspired option for the redevelopment of the old Malden Hospital site. For more than a year, the Friends and BAC have been crafting an alternative to the Fellsmere Housing Group proposal for a 250-unit residential development with the hope that members of Malden and Medford’s City Council’s hospital review committees would see the value of a plan that incorporated the community’s values and vision for the hospital site. With the cities on board, the Friends could make the case to MelroseWakefield Healthcare that a community plan trumps the proposal for a privately developed residential complex. But that part of the challenge is over. Now that the Fellsmere Housing Group is no longer a contender, there is no need to argue that the BAC-FoFH proposal is the preferable alternative. And what makes the situation sweeter is the statement from MelroseWakefield Healthcare expressing the health care organization’s desire to collaborate with residents and neighbors on the future of the hospital site. The BAC-FoFH plan was developed with input from residents who attended a public meeting on the project and the results of an online survey that was conducted to gather more ideas from residents on the redevelopment of the hospital site. BAC-FoFH board liaison Leah Emerson and BAC faculty advisor Rashmi Ramaswamy, a registered architect and cofounder of Shed Studio, will present the proposal on Oct. 2, from 6 to 7:30 p.m. in the Beebe School Auditorium. The Friends hope Malden will turn out to see the new proposal and to celebrate a year’s worth of work that’s now over and future prospects for the hospital site, which are just starting to take shape.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 ~ Op-Ed ~ Page 9 We must take strong action to rein in prescription drug costs E veryone should be able to count on having access to health care that is high quality and affordable. But even in Massachusetts, where we have the highest rate of health insurance of any state in the country, access to affordable care is out of reach for many people. One of the biggest drivers of increasing health care costs for families, businesses, and taxpayers is rising prescription drug prices, which drive up health insurance premiums and increase out-of-pocket costs. It is time that we take strong action to rein in prescription drug costs. The often exorbitant prices of many commonly prescribed medications are driving vulnerable patients to ration their prescriptions and to go to extreme lengths to afford their medications. For example, a Malden resident recently shared her challenge, saying: “For years now, I have struggled with the extremely high cost of prescription drugs. In the last year, I paid $1,888 out of pocket for my prescriptions. More than 10 percent of my income is going to prescription costs alone. I have been forced to get by on sample pills from my doctor. I had to ask a friend to send me an arthritis gel from Germany where it is sold over-the-counter for a much cheaper price. My children have even bought pills for me from a friend in Canada.” She is not alone. The Health Policy Commission’s 2018 Cost Trends report showed that residents in Massachusetts increased spending on prescriptions by more than 4% last year, more than twice the 1.6 percent total increase in health care spending across the system. In addition, drug spending in MassHealth, our state’s Medicaid program, nearly doubled over the past five years. Massachusetts has made major strides in containing other health care cost drivers, but drug prices continue to grow unchecked. On Beacon Hill, the state legislature recently tackled the first part of this affordability crisis. The Fiscal Year 2020 state budget empowers the Secretary of Health and Human Services, who oversees MassHealth, to directly negotiate additional rebates with pharmaceutical companies and hold a public hearing on the proposed value of high-cost drugs. It also charges the Health Policy Commission with reviewing drug prices to determine if they are unreasonable or excessive. These much-needed reforms, which will increase the state’s bargaining power when purchasing drugs and drive down MassHealth costs, are an important first step. The next step is to pass comprehensive legislation we filed that will address rising drug costs for people with private health insurance. Our bill, An Act to ensure prescription drug cost transparency and affordability, has the support of Health Care for All and the broad Massachusetts Prescription Drug Affordability Coalition. It will rein in prescription drug costs for all consumers by: • Requiring transparency on the underlying costs to produce prescription drugs; • Authorizing the Health Policy Commission to set upper payment limits for unreasonably high-priced drugs; • Requiring pharmacists to inform consumers if purchasing a drug at the retail price would be cheaper than using their insurance; • Tackling the abuses of pharmacy benefit managers; • Supporting “academic detailing” programs that ensure doctors get accurate unbiased information to counter drug company marketing. The pharmaceutical industry says that any effort to rein in high drug prices threatens the development of new treatments. But this obscures the fact that the industry has been raising prices for longstanding medications for treating common and widespread health conditions. For example, from 2011 to 2016, the average price for doxycycline (used to treat bacterial infections) increased by 338 percent; the price for EpiPen (used to treat severe allergic reactions) increased by 214 percent; and the price for clomipramine (used to treat obsessive-compulsive disorder) increased by 771 percent. Another very troubling example has been the dramatic increase in the price of insulin, which is putting the health and well-being of many people with diabetes at risk. The state legislature and Governor Baker must take the next step to rein in prescription drug costs by passing this legislation. This is critical to ensuring that patients have affordable access to their medications and to controlling overall health care costs.

Page 10 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 Thornburg ready to lead Malden Catholic to new heights M alden Catholic High School’s new Headmaster, John Thornburg, has wasted no time ingratiating himself into the school’s culture. Over the summer before the students arrived, Thornburg was busy establishing a culture of getting to know the families of his students. From establishing weekly drop-in hours for parents, to stopping any parent he sees in the hallways, to greeting families in front of the school in the morning when classes resumed, Thornburg is trying to reach as many families as possible. It’s this ethos of Thornburg that led Malden Catholic to lure him away from the prestigious Summit Country Day School of Cincinnati, Ohio, the number one–rated Catholic high school in that state. At an August reception in front of 300 parents and staff to welcome Thornburg, Malden Catholic’s Board Chairman, James Donovan, told the audience that Malden Catholic was impressed with Thornburg from the beginning of its headmaster search process. Donovan said that the accomplishments of Thornburg and his preparation for the position were “extremely impressive.” Thornburg, who is nearing his Doctorate in Education from Xavier University, grew up just outside of Minneapolis, Minn., where he was an avid runner for both the cross-country and track teams. He left his home state to attend the University of Wisconsin–La Crosse, where he majored in Biology and Education. Thornburg got his first job out of college teaching Biology at Saint John’s Military Academy, an all-male school in Wisconsin. After 19 years as a teacher and coach, Thornburg became the academic dean and ultimately, the vice president, a position he held until 2015. In 2015 Thornburg landed at The Summit Country Day School, where he was the upper school director until Malden Catholic came calling. When Thornburg saw the opening at Malden Catholic, he was immediately drawn to its “codivisional” system of education; Malden Catholic is one of the only schools in the country with this groundbreaking academic model. Codivisional means that Malden Catholic has a distinct boys and girls division under one institution. After school hours are completed, John Thornburg Headmaster at Malden Catholic High School boys and girls have the chance to partake in competitive athletics and a wide array of shared extracurricular and service activities. The ability to offer separate learning environments on a shared campus provides Malden Catholic students with the best of both worlds: rigorous academics in a single-gender setting and collaboration in athletic, artistic and extracurricular venues. Having experience in both single-sex and coeducational academic models, Thornburg saw Malden Catholic as the perfect balance between male and female interaction that would not hinder the academics of each student. “You can deliver a more effective educational process in a single-sex environment; there’s less distractions and you can better tailor your program to the needs of your students,” Thornburg said. Aside from believing in the academics, Thornburg likes the challenges that Malden Catholic faces because they resonate with who he is. “Some of the challenges that Malden Catholic has, I think fit who I am as a leader. What brought me here was my educational journey, desire to lead a school, and the experiences I’ve had in the past match what the needs are here at Malden Catholic,” Thornburg said. Thornburg is determined to get the full potential out of the faculty and students this upcoming year by building healthy learning relationships and an effective curriculum. To that end, he set up meetings over the summer with Malden Catholic’s Student Council for everyone to work together for a common theme for the school year. After some healthy debate, Thornburg led the students in a discussion where the students chose their theme for the school year as “United in Spirit; Intent on One Purpose.” The purpose of this common theme is to “have our entire school community become stronger through building unity through humility … It’s acknowledging we can accomplish more together than apart,” Thornburg said. Through unifying Malden Catholic under a common theme, Thornburg is hopeful that it can bring out the very best Malden Catholic has to offer. “We have to be the best school we are meant to be,” he said. One of his goals for the year is to make Malden Catholic a place where students want to stay past the dismissal bell and have them participate in one of the schools 35 clubs or 18 sports teams. “If we are a place where students enjoy coming, and they learn, and they feel valued, and we make a difference in their lives then that’s the difference maker … We have to be an authentic Malden Catholic,” he stated. “It begins with leadership setting the tone, with faculty and all of us working together to the end with the students,” he said. Members needed for St. Joseph’s Youth Choir S t. Joseph Parish in Malden is looking for students in grades 2-8 to join its Youth Choir. Anyone interested must commit to attending rehearsals every Thursday from 5 to 6 p.m. and Mass every Sunday starting at 9:30 a.m. Members of the Student Council and/ or National Junior Honor Society will receive service hours in consideration of their participation in the Youth Choir. For further information, or to join, please call Betsy Pesce at 781396-0423 ext. 116 or send an email to stjosephmusic@msn.com.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 Page 11 MVRCS senior achieves semifinal status in National Merit Scholarship D avid Nguyen of Everett, a senior at Mystic Valley ReDavid Nguyen Mystic Valley Regional Charter School senior gional Charter School (MVRCS), was named a National Merit Scholar Semifinalist, joining just 16,000 students nationwide in receiving the distinction. He becomes MVRCS’s first semifinalist since Kimberly Huynh reached semifinal status in 2016. He also joins an exclusive club of 25 Mystic Valley students who achieved at least commended student distinction since 2009. Nguyen was one of over 1.5 million juniors in 2018 in 21,000 high schools across America who entered the contest by taking the Preliminary SAT/National Merit Scholarship Qualifying Test, which serves as an initial screen of program entrants. The nationwide pool of semifinalists, representing less than one percent of high school seniors, includes the highest-scoring entrants in each state. “This is quite an accomplishment for David,” MVRCS Assistant Director Matthew Stone said. “The Mystic Valley community is proud to salute him for his tireless efforts in the classroom. It goes without saying that this is a team effort; David’s teachers since he entered Mystic Valley 13 years ago have all played a role in his intellectual development as well as his social growth and maturation.” According to the National Merit Scholarship Corporation ~ Letter to the Editor ~ MBTA funding is off track for Malden Dear Editor, While campaigning, I’ve been asked very thoughtful questions. One question that comes up quite often is: what do we pay to the MBTA for public transportation? I think this is a great question and I appreciate the voter engagement! If you have more questions, please contact me at JulianneOrsino@gmail.com. After doing some research, I found that Malden’s assessment (and required payments to the MBTA) for FY2020 is $4,149,626. How was this amount determined? The MBTA assesses 176 municipalities for funding. The formula determining what each municipality is assessed is based on a complicated and antiquated equation. Much like the Chapter 70 education funding formula, the MBTA formula needs to be updated to provide fair and equitable assessments to the communities it serves. The current formula does not work for the residents of Malden. The major challenge with the MBTA funding formula is that it puts the lion’s share of assessments on 14 “original” communities. Out of the 176 municipalities assessed, Malden is the 6th highest in the state. A higher assessment would make sense if the formula was based on providing increased, more reliable and improved transportation services to all, but that is not currently the case. The funding model for the MBTA is unfair and leads to inequitable assessments on 14 communities, especially Malden. The estimated $4.15 million fee is astronomical compared to other communities similar to Malden. For example, Quincy has several subway, bus and rail options like Malden. The population of Quincy is over 94,000 residents, compared with the population of Malden at over 67,000. Here is the difference; Quincy is not one of the “original” 14 MBTA communities, so Quincy is assessed $2.1 million where Malden is assessed $4.15 million. It seems clear that there is a disconnect in how municipalities are assessed, and this is hurting Malden. We need to work with state officials and the MBTA Advisory Board to balance out assessments and bring fairness to the process. Malden can take a leadership role in moving the MBTA toward equitable assessments tied to improved service for all, but this is not a small task. It will take strong, committed and tenacious leaders to initiate and follow through. With your help and vote, I will make this a focus for our City Council. The Boston City Council has called for an updated funding formula. Malden City Council can follow suit and take action! As the sixth highest assessed municipality, we have a vested interest in getting this fixed. It’s time for Malden to jump on the train and demand fairness with the MBTA funding model! As a strong community advocate, I have galvanized our community to tackle big challenges together! I have over 20 years of implementing multi-million dollar, complex global projects in the private sector. I have facilitated tough conversations with groups with competing interests. I know how to successfully engage different stakeholders to reach a common vision and goal. I will bring these skills to the City Council as your Ward 3 City Councillor. Respectfully, I ask for your vote on November 5. As your Ward 3 Councillor, I will work hard for the residents, commuters, and taxpayers of Malden to tackle the issues that matter to you! Please contact me with your thoughts and questions. I look forward to hearing from you. Very Best Regards, Julianne Orsino, Candidate for Ward 3 Councillor (781) 627-6469 (NMSC), of the 16,000 semifinalists, approximately 15,000 are expected to advance to the final round – Nguyen will learn his fate in February. NMSC, a nonprofit organization that operates without government assistance, was established in 1955 specifically to conduct the annual National Merit Scholarship Program. Scholarships are underwritten by NMSC with its own funds, and there are approximately 400 business organizations and higher education institutions that share NMSC’s goals of honoring the nation’s scholastic champions and encouraging the pursuit of academic excellence.

Page 12 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 Malden: today, tomorrow and yesterday... By Peter F. Levine N o, you haven’t picked up the Malden Observer-Advocate by mistake. Please welcome my inaugural column of “Malden: today, tomorrow and yesterday...” to this wonderful newspaper, The Malden Advocate. I am really happy to be on these pages. Keen observers may recognize me from the Observer. I will continue to contribute my “Malden Musings” column to the Malden Observer-Advocate but have branched out to the home of Virginia Ruane, Barbara Taormina and old friend Jim Mitchell. Basically, you’ll get the same old slop you’re used to from me, just a lot shorter. I kid. Hopefully, I will be an asset to this already excellent local weekly. We’re extremely lucky, as a city, to have two quality local newspapers. May the print media never die! The Fuccis of Whitman Street recently suffered the devastating loss of their beloved mom, Gloria. Right now I’d like to send out my sincerest and deepest condolences to the family. The Fuccis have been friends of mine and my family for decades. They are deep-rooted, longtime Maldonians who’ve touched many lives over the years. Mrs. Fucci made many a sub for me when she worked at Pumpsy’s back in the day (and maybe even Charlie Moreno’s Sub Shop). Gloria’s son, Allan, posted a couple of heartfelt, poignant thoughts on Facebook that I thought I’d share: “Thank you to all of you who have reached out to my family at such a difficult time for us. Whether you sent a text, a prayer, a card, flowers, a phone call or a visit with food so we didn’t have to cook and just spend mom’s final days reminiscing, laughing, crying and keeping mom comfortable. Thank you from the bottom of our hearts. The outpouring of love and support we received from you all is overwhelming. We are so grateful for our beautiful family and friends. Mom will be missed so much but will be forever in the hearts of all those she touched. Thank you, mom, for the beautiful life you made for us. Rest in peace. You definitely earned it. Until we meet again please watch over your crazy but loving family. I love you so much mom.” Allan followed up that post a few days later with this one: “A little over three weeks ago when we brought our mom to my house, I had received a call on my house phone from a Cape Cod number. When I answered a gentleman asked for my mom said his name was Dom, he said he knew my mom from years ago and heard she was not well and just wanted to send his well wishes. He then asked if I was her son, I said yes. He said, I want you to know I was the guy who introduced your mom and dad to each other almost 70 years ago and they were wonderful people. My heart dropped. I went and The Fucci Family: Diane, Allan, Joanie, Marie and their late mother Gloria. (Courtesy Photo) told my mom about this call and she corrected me on his last name and was excited to hear his name. This morning we walk into the funeral home and this guy is sitting alone on a couch. I approached him and he stands, puts his hand out and says hi I’m Dom Savarese. He drove by himself from the Cape very early to come to my mom’s funeral. Some people are amazing!” Norman Greenbaum, Charlie Farren, Marc Phaneuf, Phil Bynoe, Gary Cherone and John Surette aren’t the only Maldonians to make a splash in the music world. For newcomers and old-timers alike, here is a little bit of local musical history about a little-known player from Malden. In 1996, as part of their “Ultra Lounge” series, Capital Records released “Organs in Orbit” featuring Malden’s own Joe Bucci with his trio doing their “Space Age” take on the songs “Patricia” and “Lil Darlin.” Born in Malden in 1927, Joseph William Bucci was a highly respected big band jazz organist and accomplished accordionist as well as one of the finest “cocktail” pianists in the business. Little did Mr. Bucci know that every “Brother Cleve” follower, every “Vintage Cocktail” lover, every “Atomic Age Bachelor Pad Hipster” of the 1990’s would be swinging to the smooth sounds of his Hammond B3 (or “The Monster” as it was later nicknamed). Joe was a friend of Count Basie (the Count spoke glowingly of Joe on many occasions), had the charismatic Charlie Harris as his swinging lead vocalist in the early 1970’s (Charlie might still be swinging today at a lounge near you) and reformed the Joe Bucci Trio in the late 1970’s with his son Joe Jr. Throughout the 1960’s he was a regular as a duo at Lennie Sogoloff’s jazz club Lennie’s on the Turnpike on Route 1 in Peabody. Joe’s drummer for many years was Joe Rettig – also a Malden boy. Little known fact department: The song “Patricia” was used as the theme song for the HBO show “Real Sex.” Joe passed away in 2008. Random act of kindness committed on Labor Day Monday at the corner of Broadway & Eastern Avenue at Holy Cross Cemetery: middle-aged man standing on the side of the road next to his 10-speed with a cardboard sign indicating he was hungry. Out of nowhere, from behind an idling vehicle pops a young man with a “man-bun” and Adidas sweats. He hands the thin, grizzled gentleman a large bag of (I assume) breakfast sandwiches from McDonald’s and a large drink of some sort. Smiles all around and a firm handshake from a hungry traveler. A pleasure to watch unfold. Saint Rocco weekend this year was another fabulous display of Malden at its inclusive best. Old-time Maldonians mingled with newcomers to the city for three days of fun, family and tradition. I spotted, once again, making the rounds during the weekend, the “Flame and Fury of Fleet Street,” the baddest welterweight pugilist evah, champ Tony DeMarco! Still handsome, shaking hands with the young and old with that great big smile of his and that still firm handshake. Accompanied by his beautiful bride Dottie, Billy Spadafora Sr. and his lovely wife Donna, the “Pride of the North End” continues promoting his autobiography, “Nardo: Memoirs of a Boxing Champion.” Levine/Drago family folklore from back in the day has it that my (late) uncle Sammy (Drago) taught young Tony a thing or two about boxing at a local gym off Hanover Street in the North End. Extra special shout-out to Terri Gilligan’s little girl, Keri! With the blink of an eye Keri is a senior at Malden High School competing in both tennis and track for the school as well as serving as the 2020 Class Treasurer. This National Honor Society member comes from one of the best families ever to live in Malden. You probably know one of Keri’s many uncles. All great guys, sister Terri being the best of the bunch! Have a great senior year, young lady! “This is the end, beautiful friend; this is the end, my only friend, the end...” The giant “Spirit in the Sky” mural in progress (finished?) at the corner of Exchange & S. Washington Sts. honors the number one smash hit pop song by legendary Malden native – straight outta Lisbon Street, from Malden High School Class of 1960 – Norman Greenbaum. Malden Arts ARTLine will be holding a ribbon-cutting ceremony for the new mural in tribute to Mr. Greenbaum on Oct 15 - start time is tentatively scheduled for 5:30 p.m., before sunset. Norman will be there! Music is planned and additional details will follow. Stay tuned! Watch for me as Norman Greenbaum Fanboy Number One looking to have my vintage Norman poster signed and a selfie taken with the legend himself! Postscript: When I say, “May the print media never die” I do not mean to sound flip about it. Print media will die unless we continue to support it. It is vital to all of us.

Page 14 THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 Football Tornadoes begin season at home tonight against Melrose By Nick Toscani 2020-21 school year. With all the "newness" T he "new look" Malden High Golden Tornado football squad still has a few holdovers who will add to the shiny model that rolls out tonight at Eddie Melanson Field at Macdonald Stadium. The Blue and Gold football boys are also playing in brandnew league as well this season. Malden opens the 2019 season with a home game this evening, hosting highly-touted, next-door rival Melrose High. Kickoff is at 6:00 p.m. Aside from starting the new season, the Tornado squad and coaching staff is excited about the transition into a new league, with a familiar name: GBL (Greater Boston League). Malden, Medford, Somerville and Everett withdrew from the Northeastern Conference (NEC) after a brief, three-year stay and have been joined by a fifth NEC defector, Revere, to reconstitute the GBL, mainstay in Eastern Mass. for over 60 years before it dissolved after the 2015-16 school year. Old GBL friend Chelsea joins the Greater Boston League in all sports beginning in the around the team this year, Malden's outlook for success will rely largely on the shoulders of some its talented returnees, starting with tri-captain and All-Conference twoway starter Jerry Mervil. Mervil put up electrifying numbers last season for Malden. How's this for dominating? The 5-9, 190 slot receiver led the team in ALL THREE major offensive categories: Rushing (554 yards), Receiving (589 yards), Scoring (8 TDs, 58 points). On top of that, he led the NEC in interceptions from his safety spot. "Jerry (Mervil) was the best all-around player in the NEC last year and did receive some votes for MVP," Malden High head coach Steve Freker said. "There were some players who had more offensive numbers, but no one did on both sides of the football like Jerry. He did it all." It is also no surprise that Mervil has been the leader of the team since being re-appointed captain of the team this year, after serving as a junior captain last year. "Our three senior captains, Jerry, Peterson Maxis and Ishmael Sylus have been tremendous leaders through the offseason and recent preseason and we could not have asked for any better," Coach Freker said. "They are three solid, twoway players who are a credit to this city, their school, their team and their families." The three captains will be joined on the offensive squad by sophomore quarterback J.J. Costa, who saw quality time at the varsity level last year as a freshman. Costa led the game winning drive in the bone chilling (15 degrees at kickoff) Thanksgiving Day win over Medford last November. Costa's favorite targets in the Tornado spread attack will be Mervil, Sylus, juniors Matt Bessey and Mike Mathes, senior transfer from Ft. Myers, Fla. Jabari Youman and senior Wootchy Pierre-Rene. Maxis and junior Giovanni Mumesu will lead the backfield, along with juniors Jude Alphonse and Dean Testa. Up front will be returning All-Conference center Davenche Sydney, just a sophomore, junior Ralph Deus Jr. and sophomores Eliezer Beato, Sammy Solorzano and Justin DeSimone. Defensively, DeSimone, Memesu and Beato will spearhead the linebacker corps along with Alphonse and Maxis. Juniors Muneer Odally, Bessey, senior Max Mitchie and senior Chris Thelemaque will man the defensive end spots with Sydney, Deus, sophomore Jeremiah Dessources and junior Nick Cardoso holding up the D-line. In the defensive backfield a slew of contributors reside including Mervil, Sylus, PierreRene, Mathes and sophomore Oswaldo Rodriquez. A welcome addition to the team this year is sophomore kicker Ronaldo Juarez. "Ronald's legit. He booms them from 40-50 yards every day in practice. He's really got a future," said Coach Freker the second-year head coach, who in his 20th year overall at Malden and 29th year coaching Division 1 high school football overall. His coaching staff includes defensive coordinator Mike Barbati Jr., offensive coordinator Steve Almquist Jr., line Jerry Mervil Senior Capt. coach Elisee Pompilus, and assistants Romario Berneche, Dave Console, Will Rennie, Ken Runge Jr. and Mike DiCato. On Melrose? "Coach (Tim) Morris is one of the top coaches in the state and he puts put a competitive team every year. We expect nothing less this year," the Malden coach added. "We want to control the ball and keep their offense off the field. If we are successful at that and we get a few bounces our way, it will be a great night for Malden football." Malden Catholic falls to Winchester in season opener M alden Catholic’s 2019 football season got underway on Friday, September 6, when the Lancers traveled to Winchester. Friday’s game introduced a new era of MC football as a new Athletic Director/football coach, Bill Raycraft, made his Malden Catholic football debut.

Winchester and running back Jimmy Gibbons received the ball first. They didn’t take much time to get things going as they marched down the field to score the first touchdown, 7-0; however, Malden Catholic’s offense was eager to take the field. Malden Catholic running back Zeke Bragg, a junior from Chelsea, broke a few tackles for a solid first down run. That run would then set up for a 25-yard pass from Lancers quarterback Sean Kelley, a senior from Wilmington, to wide receiver Daps Olatunbosun, a junior from Malden. After a first and goal, Kelley ran for the touchdown to tie the game at 7-7. Malden Catholic’s scoring didn’t stop there. On the next possession, Winchester threw a costly interception to Kelley, who took it to the house to give MC a 13-7 lead. Much of the second quarter was a defensive battle; neither team could get much going on offense until late in the second quarter. Winchester managed to score a touchdown as time was expiring to tie the game at 13-13. After stopping MC to start the third quarter, Winchester QB Thomas Degnan ran for a touchdown to reclaim the lead, 19-13. But MC and Kelley were determined to take the lead back. With four minutes to go in the third quarter, Kelley connected with Bragg for a 49-yard pass to set up first and goal. Winchester ultimately stopped MC for a turnover. After Kelley’s pass, the game was all Winchester. Degnan and Gibbons put up 14 unanswered points on the Lancers to give them a 27-13 win. After the game Raycraft said his team had a quick preseason, but “they’ve continued to get better each day, and the coaches expect that the players will learn from any miscues in game one and come out ready to go versus Methuen on Saturday.” Malden Catholic looks to bounce back next game against Methuen on Saturday, September 14 at 1:00 p.m. at Methuen High School.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 ~ Malden High Sports Roundup ~ Page 15 Santos red-hot with five goals to lead Tornadoes Boys’ Soccer to two straight wins Brendon Santos goes in for one of the five goals he scored in Malden High’s two wins to open the season. (Photo Courtesy of MHS Athletics) By Justin McAllister T he more things change, the more they stay the same. Malden High School boys’ soccer head coach Jeremiah Smith has enjoyed consistent success leading the Golden Tornadoes soccer program since 2004. He’s closing in on 150 career wins and has his team consistently in postseason state tournament contention. His rosters may change, but the results never seem to, and after the first week, it looks like that will continue. The boys’ soccer team rolled to two straight wins, 2-0 over Boston International and 6-3 over Salem. Junior striker Brendon Santos was the story with five goals and an assist in the two games. The defense looked sharp, particularly in the opening day shutout in goal by John Nunes, and the team looks to be rounding into form. Malden boys’ soccer fell to Medford, 5-2, in its Greater Boston League (GBL) opener on Wednesday night for its first loss. Malden has a busy week ahead, plating on the road at non-leaguer Lynn Classical on Tuesday, Sept. 17 at Manning Field at 4:00 p.m. and then hosting GBL rival Everett on Wednesday, Sept. 18 at 6:00 p.m. at Macdonald Stadium in Malden. Malden Girls’ Volleyball opens with win over Saugus The girls’ volleyball team played the most games on opening week, playing three times. The season started strong with a straight sets win over Saugus at home. Junior Julia Oliveira was a standout with a strong service game.

S THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, September 13, 2019 CONFRONT | FROM PAGE 7 Page 17 intendents. “We will also be taking part in by Jim Miller How to Get Social Security Disability Benefits When You Can’t Work Dear Savvy Senior, What do I need to do to get Social Security disability benefits? I’m 60 years old and have some health problems that won’t allow me to work, but I’ve read that getting disability benefits is difficult. Laid Up Lenny Dear Lenny, Getting Social Security disability benefits when you’re unable to work can be challenging. Last year, more than 2 million people applied for Social Security disability benefits, but two-thirds of them were denied, because most applicants fail to prove that they’re disabled and can’t work. Here are some steps you can take that can help improve your odds. Get Informed The first thing you need to find out is if your health problem qualifies you for Social Security disability benefits. You generally will be eligible only if you have a health problem that is expected to prevent you from working in your current line of work (or any other line of work that you have been in over the past 15 years) for at least a year or result in death. There is no such thing as a partial disability benefit. If you’re fit enough to work part-time, your application will be denied. You also need not apply if you still are working with the intention of quitting if your application is approved, because if you’re working your application will be denied. Your skill set and age are factors too. Your application will be denied if your work history suggests that you have the skills to perform a less physically demanding job that your disability does not prevent you from doing. To help you determine if you are disabled, visit SSA.gov/planners/disability/qualify.html and go through the five questions Social Security uses to determine disability. How to Apply If you believe you have a claim, your next step is to gather up your personal, financial and medical information so you can be prepared and organized for the application process. You can apply either online at SSA.gov/applyfordisability or call 800-772-1213 to make an appointment to apply at your local Social Security office, or to set up an appointment for someone to take your claim over the phone. The whole process lasts about an hour. If you schedule an appointment, a “Disability Starter Kit” that will help you get ready for your interview will be mailed to you. If you apply online, the kit is available at SSA.gov/disability/disability_starter_kits.htm. It takes three to five months from the initial application to receive either an award or denial of benefits. The only exception is if you have a chronic illness that qualifies you for a “compassionate allowance” (see SSA.gov/compassionateallowances), which fast tracks cases within weeks. If Social Security denies your initial application, you can appeal the decision, and you’ll be happy to know that roughly half of all cases that go through a round or two of appeals end with benefits being awarded. But the bad news is with backlog of around 800,000 people currently waiting for a hearing, it can take 12 to 24 months for you to get one. Get Help You can hire a representative to help you with your Social Security disability claim. By law, representatives can charge only 25 percent of past-due benefits up to a maximum of $6,000 if they win your case. It’s probably worth hiring someone at the start of the application process if your disability is something difficult to prove such as chronic pain. If, however, your disability is obvious, it might be worth initially working without a representative to avoid paying the fee. You can always hire a representative later if your initial application and first appeal are denied. To find a representative, check with the National Organization of Social Security Claimants’ Representatives (NOSSCR.org, 845-682-1881) or National Association of Disability Representatives (NADR.org, 800-747-6131). Or, if you’re low-income, contact the Legal Services Corporation (LSC.gov/find-legal-aid) for free assistance. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book. a couple of recruiting fairs and programs to augment the diversity of our teachers and staff,” said Oteri. School principals and administrators plan to participate in DESE’s Diversity Network, which offers workshops on topics such as recruiting a diverse workforce and targeted and bias-free hiring. “The program is designed to put us in a position to reach more candidates of color,” said Oteri. Malden schools are in their second year of Harvard’s Reimagining Integration: Diverse and Equitable Schools (RIDES) program. Led by Dr. Darnisa Amante, RIDES shows teachers and administrators how to evaluate their specific school culture, establish their school’s identity and pinpoint areas of concern. The program focuses on creating a sense of inclusion for students that allows them to appreciate their own and other cultures. That sense of inclusion creates a safe foundation that allows a school community to work together to identify and “dismantle” racism. Amante will lead a town hall meeting on RIDES sometime this fall for staff, students, parents and members of the community. As for ongoing antiracism training for teachers, the district’s next professional development day will offer a series of equity workshops that will focus on implicit bias and assumptions about race, equity and accountability. Malden High students will examine their own biases and attitudes on race through the Anti-Defamation League’s World of Difference program, which includes workshops on the effects of name-calling and bullying. The program also helps students develop skills to be allies for one another. “It’s a peer-leader program and it’s very effective,” said Oteri. The district is also incorporating more resources into the curriculum and adding more books to school libraries that will focus on the histories and cultures of the city’s different ethnic groups. “We are taking a number of steps in that direction and we’re really proud of that,” said Oteri. Although Oteri would be among the first to admit that more needs to be done to address bias and ensure equity, he said it’s a complex problem that will take time to resolve. “Eradicating centuries of racism is an ongoing issue,” he said. “And it’s difficult because racism manifests itself in different ways.” He does, however, want students, parents and members of the community to know that Malden schools are working on it. Q ualified retirement plans and IRA’s are not subject to probate upon death so long as there is a named beneficiary. Beneficiary designation rules are very liberal, providing IRA owners with many options when it comes to naming a beneficiary. Any individual and entity can be named a beneficiary. For example, a charity, an estate or a Trust can be named a beneficiary of an IRA. While the account owner is still alive, he or she cannot transfer the IRA to a Trust without generating taxable income on the amount transferred. An IRA owner might wish to name a Trust as a beneficiary in order to limit access on the part of a beneficiary of the Trust. In a sense, the IRA owner continues to control the distributions by naming a Trustee of the Trust to manage all of its assets. You would only name a Trust as a beneficiary for non-tax reasons as you will not be in a more favorable tax situation by doing so. For example, you might have a son or a daughter that is a spendthrift or has a substance abuse problem. The Trust must be drafted as a “look-through” or “seethrough” Trust. The IRS will “look through” the Trust and treat the Trust’s beneficiaries as the IRA’s direct beneficiary, although theTrust becomes the direct owner of the Inherited IRA. This allows the heirs to take advantage of favorable minimum distribution rules that apply to individual designated beneficiaries (e.g. those beneficiaries that have a life expectancy). To qualify as a look-through Trust, the Trust must meet all of the following requirements: It must be a valid Trust under state law It must be irrevocable upon the death of theIRA account owner. A revocable Trust will not be able to take advantage of the “stretch” IRA provisions Individual beneficiaries must be identifiable from the Trust document itself Designating A Trust As An Ira Beneficiary Required Trust documentation must have been provided to the IRA custodian no later than October 31st of the year following the IRA account owner’s death by the Trustee. In addition to the above requirements, only individuals may be considered “designated beneficiaries” by the IRS for purposes of taking advantage of the “stretch” IRA provisions. An estate or charitable organization may not be a designated beneficiary as they have no life expectancy. Therefore, they cannot take advantage of the “stretch” IRA provisions. It is also wise to make sure the IRA custodian permits naming a Trust as a beneficiary.A properly drafted lookthrough Trust is deemed a non-spousal beneficiary and thus must follow post-death RMD (Require Minimum Distribution) rules. This is the case even if the spouse is the sole beneficiary of the Trust. The Trust was the actual beneficiary, not the spouse. Upon the IRA owner’s death, only the RMD needs to be paid to the Trust, not the entire IRA account balance. Bypassing the Trust as a beneficiary is not allowed. Once the RMD is made to the Trust, then the Trustee will make distributions to Trust beneficiaries based upon the terms of the Trust itself. The Trust is the actual owner of the “Inherited IRA” account. Taxable distributions occur only when there are IRA distributions to the Trust from the Inherited IRA account based upon the RMD rules. Generally, the oldest beneficiary (i.e. the one with the shortest life expectancy among the beneficiaries) will be used to determine the amount of the RMD. Then the RMD paid to the Trust is distributed to the Trust beneficiaries pursuant to the terms of the Trust. Keep in mind that you may draft a Trust so as to create separate subtrusts for the benefit of each Trust beneficiary. This way, the RMD’s will be based upon each of the sub-Trust beneficiary’s life expectancy and there would be multiple RMD calculations. This provides for better “stretch” IRA planning. You would name each separate sub-trust as a beneficiary of the original IRA account. If the Trust fails to qualify as a look-through Trust, then the entire Inherited IRA account must be distributed to the Trust within 5 years after the original IRA owner’s death. Joseph D.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call looks at the handful of major legislation that was approved by the Legislature and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker so far in 2019. In the first eight months of the 2019 session, only 69 bills out of more than 6,200 filed have been approved by the House and Senate and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. Twenty-six of those were local bills dealing with an individual city or town and 28 were on sick leave banks for individual state workers. Sick leave banks allow employees to voluntarily donate sick, personal or vacation days to a pool for use by ill fellow state workers so they can get paid while on medical leave. Eleven other bills ranged from supplemental budgets and extending simulcast racing to regulating appraisal management companies and establishing a restaurant promotion commission. The remaining four were major bills that were debated and came to a roll call vote in both branches and were signed into law by Gov. Baker. Here they are: $43.3 BILLION FISCAL 2020 STATE BUDGET (H 4000) House 159-0, Senate 39-1, approved and Gov. Baker signed into law a $43.3 billion fiscal 2020 state budget. The package raises spending by $1.6 billion, or 4 percent over fiscal 2019. In an unusual move, Gov. Charlie Baker signed the fiscal 2020 state budget into law without vetoing any of the $43.3 billion in spending approved by the House and Senate. Beacon Hill Roll Call talked to several Statehouse veterans and not one could remember any other time in the last four decades that the governor did not veto funding in the budget. Just last year, Baker vetoed $48.9 million from a $41.7 billion budget. “The lieutenant governor and I and the secretary [of Administration and Finance] and a lot of our team spent a lot of time talking about the line item stuff, and basically came to the conclusion that this budget is balanced,” said Baker when he signed the bill. “We’re obviously going to pay a lot of attention to what happens to revenues in the first two quarters of the year because we did have a lot of volatility in the revenue base for 2019. So we’re going to work pretty hard to pay attention not just to the revenue side but also the spending side going forward.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Rep. Steven Ultrino Sen. Jason Lewis Yes Yes Yes REPEAL CAP ON WELFARE BENEFITS FOR KIDS (S 2186) House 155-1, Senate 37-3, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of a bill that repeals the current law that denies an additional $100 in welfare benefits to children conceived while—or soon after—the family began receiving welfare benefits, or if they had received family welfare benefits in the past. The law was adopted in 1995 as part of a welfare reform package that was aimed at discouraging families already receiving public support from having more children. “Eliminating the family cap should be accompanied by other reforms to the [welfare] program designed to align the eligibility determination with federal standards and support recipients as they return to work,” said Gov. Baker in his veto message. Supporters of the repeal said that there are some 8,700 children who currently fall under the cap in the Bay State. These families are barred from receiving an additional $100 a month to help support that child. They said there are no facts to back up the charge that families are having more children in order to get the additional $100. (A “Yes” vote is for repealing the cap. A “No” vote is against repealing it.) Rep. Paul Donato Rep. Steven Ultrino Sen. Jason Lewis Yes Yes Yes BAN CONVERSION THERAPY FOR ANYONE UNDER 18 (H 140) House 148-8, Senate 34-0, approved and Gov. Baker signed into law a bill that would prohibit psychiatrists, psychologists and other health care providers from attempting to change the sexual orientation, gender identity or gender expression of anyone under 18. Conversion therapy exposes the person to a stimulus while simultaneously subjecting him or her to some form of discomfort. The therapy is primarily used to try to convert gays and lesbians to be straight.

Jack Lewis (D-Framingham) at the time of the vote. “This vote was an appalling assault on parental rights in the commonwealth,” said the president of the Massachusetts Family Institute Andrew Beckwith who opposed lifting the ban. “Over 140 of our state legislators apparently believe that parents should not be able to get gender-confused children any treatment, even counseling, that might help them avoid cross-sex hormone injections, sterility or ‘transition’ surgery. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Paul Donato Rep. Steven Ultrino Sen. Jason Lewis Yes Yes Yes $200 MILLION IN CHAPTER 90 FUNDING FOR LOCAL ROADS (H 69) House 156-0, Senate 40-0, approved and the governor signed into law Senate a bill authorizing $200 million in onetime funding for the maintenance and repair of local roads and bridges in cities and towns across the state. The package is a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds. Other provisions include $200 million for rail improvements and $1.5 billion in bonding to allow for federal interstate repairs to advance. According to officials, 80 percent of the $1.5 billion would be reimbursed by the federal government. Supporters said the $200 million would help cities and towns keep their roads and bridges safe and allow many vital municipal road projects to move forward. No one voted against the bill but there are some legislators and city and town officials who say the same old $200 million that has been given since fiscal 2012 is insufficient. For several years, the Massachusetts Municipal Association (MMA) has been seeking to increase the amount to $300 million. Advocates say that cities and towns maintain and repair 90 percent of the roadways in the Bay State. They note that because of revenue caps imposed by Proposition 2 1/2, cities and towns are very dependent on state funding to keep roads and bridges from crumbling. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Paul Donato Didn't Vote Rep. Steven Ultrino Sen. Jason Lewis Yes 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.
