THE MALDEN ADVOCATE–Friday, October 15, 2021 Page 17 FORUM | FROM PAGE 15 munity through this organization; they should focus on their students." (The following question was submitted for the Malden HS Blue and Gold newspaper) Q: In the Unite 2020 platform by Mayor Christenson, racism was declared a public health crisis. How do you assess the impact of racism in Malden? Ward 1 incumbent Crowe: "I absolutely believe we have to empower women and eliminate racism. We need to have real conversations on race and racism and raise the curtain." Ward 3 incumbent Linehan: "Malden should be a leader in this work (in anti-racism). As a white woman, (anti-racism) training is illuminating. We have to build on what we have done like multi-lingual poll workers and lines of access to city services." Ward 3 challenger Curtis: "I haven't seen Malden in the news with an outcry over racism (here). Racism is not learned, it is taught. It is oaky to be transparent. Unless we start talking (to each other) the world will not change." Ward 4 incumbent O'Malley: "Racism is alive and well in our society, but our response needs to be more than words. We need to talk the talk and walk the walk. We need to be more supportive of all of our residents including women of color." Ward 4 challenger Donahue: "Malden is unique. When the Mayor brought this up, it was more of a national issue. We do our part and that includes our great police and fire departments, which, by the way, have both endorsed me, over an incumbent, which is unheard of. They just want to be appreciated for what they do." The following question was submitted by the Malden Advocate Q: Public safety and, specifically, how public policing is or has been done has become a lightning-rod issue across the nation. In turn, politicians and groups have taken stances on the issue of budget allocations for police departments with the slogans of "Defund the Police" and "The People's Budget" becoming synonymous with lowering and/or reallocating funding for police departments, cutting personnel and funneling those funds toward other uses. What is your general stance on public safety and police funding in Malden? Ward 1 Crowe: "It's such a wide topic. We're fortunate to have a dedicated police force and our police need more resources, not less.” Councillor Crowe said she was supportive of programs which incorporate mental health clinicians to partner with public safety personnel to respond to certain issues and situations. Ward 3 challenger Curtis: "Public safety is huge. I support the Police Dept. 110 percent. "My opponent is endorsed by Our Revolution Malden which has an aggressive stand against police funding." Ward 3 incumbent Linehan: "Public safety is not about slogans. I reject the notion we should be defunding police. I think it is disgraceful to promote this fear-mongering. We need more crisis support to work alongside police." Ward 4 challengers Donahue: "I was not a part-time park ranger in high school but I am not for defunding police, they are underfunded. My opponent will say he is not for defunding police and that he is not for alternative budgets and reallocating money but that's not what he has said before. Ask the police department and the fire department how they have been treated by our Ward 4 Councilor, that's the real barometer." Ward 4 incumbent O'Malley: "We have seen the motif of this forum, mischaracterizations and lies by my opponent. We all remember where Jeff came from. The suit and tie doesn't fool us. Working families know where I stand. I support the Malden Police. I stand with the Mayor and Chief Molis. I want police focusing on violent crime and solving murders (not answering mental health crisis and substance abuse calls)." ~ LEGAL NOTICE ~ COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Docket No. MI21P5005GD Middlesex Probate and Family Court 10-U Commerce Way, Woburn, MA 01801 In the interests of: Joevon Jenkins Of Malden, MA Minor NOTICE AND ORDER: PETITION FOR APPOINTMENT OF GUARDIAN OF A MINOR NOTICE TO ALL INTERESTED PARTIES 1.

DeCRISTOFARO Register of Probate October 15, 2021 PROJECT | FROM PAGE 8 Technically Supt. DiBari and chief consultant Charlie Lyons, a former school superintendent, explained, Malden's City Council is not required to vote "in favor" of the proposal, as Malden's own representative on the Northeast School Committee, James Holland, has already voted in favor of the plan to build a new, $317 million facility, The City Council could vote to reject the proposal, but then a districtwide popular vote would have to be taken from all the 12 sending school districts to either approve or deny the proposal. Malden's share of the cost of the new school building would be $36 million, or, $1.2 million annually, spread over 30 years. At Tuesday's meeting Malden city councillors were complimentary of the school and thanked the presenters for providing information and on a motion by Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy voted to send the matter to the Finance Committee for further discussion. More on the new Northeast Vocational school building proposal in next week's edition.
