They are School Committee Member-Elect Anthony D’Ambrosio, Councillor-at-Large-Elect Gerry Visconti and Ward 6 CouncillorElect Richard Serino. Mayor Brian Arrigo emerged victorious once again in a 2015 rematch against former Mayor Daniel Rizzo. The remaining School Committee members and the rest of the city councillors retained their seats. A few major fires broke out, including one on New Year’s Day. Hotels and the Suffolk Downs Redevelopment site as well as other business continued to generate revenue for the city. There was also a crackdown on illegal apartments and residential parking stickers.

The required forms and submission instructions are available online. The gaming law established an annual deadline of February 1 for applications from municipalities and other qualified governmental entities seeking mitigation funds. The Massachusetts Legislature legalized casino gaming to produce broad-based economic development, including jobs and revenue. To date, gaming tax revenue has exceeded $500 million, and the industry has created more than 12,000 construction jobs and thousands of operational jobs. The Legislature also established an equally important mandate to mitigate unintended impacts associated with the arrival of casino gaming. To that end, the law created CMF to support communities and governmental entities in offsetting costs related to the construction and operation of gaming facilities. Since 2015, the MGC has issued approximately $16 million in funding to advance needs in transportation, non-transportation planning, workforce development, and public safety for municipalities and government entities located in the vicinity of the casinos. According to the statute, MGC will issue funds to assist host and surrounding communities, including “but not limited to, communities and water and sewer districts in the vicinity of a gaming establishment, local and regional education, transportation, infrastructure, housing, environmental issues and public safety, including the office of the county district attorney, police, fire, and emergency services.” Also, MGC may distribute funds to a governmental entity or district other than a single municipality to implement a mitigation measure that affects more than one community. “The Legislature wisely established a strong mandate requiring the mitigation of unintended impacts related to expanded gaming,” said MGC Chair Cathy Judd-Stein. “The MGC extends its gratitude to all those who have participated and who will participate in CMF’s highly collaborative mitigation planning and innovative programming.” A Community Mitigation Fund review team will conduct a comprehensive review of all applications to ensure compliance with the 2020 Guidelines and make recommendations to MGC. After deliberation on those recommendations, the Commission will vote to award grant monies by July 2020. City of Revere Inauguration Ceremony Jan. 6 M ayor Brian M.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, January 3, 2020 Page 3 ECIC donates horse beds to Horses and Heroes Foundation By Tara Vocino A Revere-based nonprofit organization is thanking a local church for donating winter items for its horses. East Coast International Church (ECIC), a nondenominational church located downtown, donated two horse beds to the Horses and Heroes Foundation, an organization that honors police officers and firefighters who have gone above and beyond the call of duty. “ECIC actually called us about donating straw to keep the horses – Chief Bright and Detective Racow – warm in the winter,” Horses and Heroes Foundation President Skyllar Mulvaney said. “The straw is for them to sleep on in their stalls, like shavings, but cleaner.” According to ECIC Children’s Pastor Danielle Sawyer, the church used the straw for its Halloween outreach event, Light the Night, and as decoration outside the church. “We haven’t been able to get rid of it,” Sawyer said. “We were going to just throw it away, but then I remembered Sky, and thought she could reuse it for the horses instead of us just throwing it in the trash.” Fire Chief Christopher Bright, who was the first firefighter to have a horse named after him, was honored for his service, at the Point of Pines fire station in November 2019. In 2015, Bright received the Medal of Valor at the Massachusetts Firefighter of the Year Awards for rescuing his uncle, James Toomey, from the basement of a three-alarm fire at 79 Reservoir Ave. Judy Racow, a Winthrop detective, was also honored in November for her undercover work during a drug bust on Nov. 8, 1995. “I feel honored to be the first female officer to have a Horses and Heroes award named in my honor,” Racow said.

Hendrickson mong the many radical economic plans offered by various Democratic presidential candidates, Senators Bernie Sanders and Elizabeth Warren have proposed an annual wealth tax on billionaires (and other “ultra-rich” Americans). Sanders has bluntly stated, “There should be no billionaires.” These proposals are hugely problematical. They probably are unconstitutional and certainly present practical difficulties. Among them, the billions aren’t sitting in a bank account, but are generally tied up in large corporate enterprises. An annual forced liquidation of stock would cause potentially damaging annual disruptions to the businesses involved. But those problems are of a more technical nature. The more serious problems are their sheer obnoxiousness and offensiveness. The three most egregious flaws with proposed “billionaire wealth taxes” are that they are ungrateful, unfair and un-AmerSKATING CENTER www.Roller-World.com | 781-231-1111 ATM on site Sunday Located Adjacent to Rite Aid Pharmacy in Saugus Plaza, South Bound Route 1 MBTA Bus Route 429 FREE WI-FI - 2 WIDE SCREEN TV’S FULLY AIR CONDITIONED WINTER SKATING SCHEDULE ATTENTION! 12-8 p.m. $7.50 Monday Private Parties Tuesday School & PTO GROUPS 7:30-10:30 p.m. Adult Night 18+ only $8.50 Wednesday Private Parties Thursday Private Parties 3-11 p.m. $7.50 Friday Saturday Admission after 6 p.m. $8.50 12-11 p.m. $7.50 Admission after 6 p.m. $8.50 Skates included in price/Blades $3 Bowling Alleys, 2 snack bars, video games.

As to ungrateful, the late economist Joseph Schumpeter, looking at the social transformation wrought by capitalism, once wrote, “The capitalist achievement does not typically consist in providing more silk stockings for queens, but in bringing them within reach of factory girls.” Exactly. Look at capitalism’s track record: It takes many fewer hours of labor today to buy an everwider range of consumer products than it did just a generation ago. Millions of “poor” Americans have cell phones with far more computing power than NASA had available for putting men on the moon 50 years ago. And who brought about this incredible enrichment of the masses? If you say, “profit-seeking corporations and entrepreneurs,” go to the head of the class. The few “billionaires” among us are generally our greatest economic benefactors. They became wealthy delivering more value to more of their fellow man than the rest of us have. We should be grateful for them, instead of plotting the extinction of this rare breed. As for unfair, whatever happened to the simple Biblical principle (see Lev. 19:15) that all citizens, whether rich, poor, or in-between, are entitled to equal protection of their rights? There are only two modes of taxation that uphold the principle of equal treatment before the law: 1) every citizen is taxed the same amount; 2) every citizen’s income is taxed at the same rate. We abandoned that principle in 1913 by adopting the 16th Amendment to the U.S. Constitution. That amendment incorporated the Marxian principle of a graduated or progressive income tax – that is, different rates for different citizens. (Note: “a heavy progressive or graduated income tax” is point 2 in the 10-point plan of Marx and Engels published in the Communist Manifesto in 1848.) This is conscious and deliberate discrimination. And what is the “right” or “just” amount of discrimination? There is no self-evident, incontrovertible principle; rather, rates are determined by who has the most votes in Washington. This is the crude principle “might makes right” (i.e., there are more of us than there are of you, so we can take what we want from you). As for un-American, the promise of the American Dream has always been that the sky is the limit, and that you don’t have to be born into a hereditary aristocracy to get rich. Sadly, presumptuous political panderers like Sanders and Warren show contempt for great achievers, and have the hubris to assert that politicians, not the people who created and earned wealth, should decide how that wealth should be spent. The proposals for billionaire wealth taxes represent the worst rather than the best in us. Yes, we have considerable economic challenges in our country, but cannibalizing the wealth creators who uplift our living standards is not the way forward. — Dr. Mark W. Hendrickson is a retired adjunct faculty member, economist, and fellow for economic and social policy with the Institute for Faith and Freedom at Grove City College. RevereTV Spotlight A few weeks ago, RevereTV announced the start of the big move to our new studio location at 261 Washington Ave. RTV will be in this process through the end of January as we relocate and set up all of our equipment and new spaces. Some new additions to what we will be offering to community members are a full green screen wall, and additional kitchen studio. Two editing suites will still be available, as well as checkout field equipment. Our current studio will still be running at a very limited capacity for community members until the move is complete. In-studio shoots cannot be booked, but with enough notice, editing sessions can be arranged. Please contact our Director of Community Media, Andrew Love, at 781-4269498 ext. 2 for any questions or availability. The RevereTV staff remains excited about this big change. Throughout the move, RTV will still be covering all city government meetings at City Hall as usual. These meetings air live on YouTube, Comcast channel 9, and RCN channel 13. Last week the city held the Annual Menorah Lighting Ceremony on Thursday, December 26 at 4 p.m. at City Hall. RevereTV was there to cover the event, which can be viewed on our YouTube page or Comcast channel 8 and RCN channel 3.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, January 3, 2020 ~ Letter-to-the-Editor ~ Thank a former smoker for quitting this holiday season Dear Editor, This holiday season, I’d like to remind readers to thank a coworker, friend or family member who has quit vaping, smoking, or using other tobacco products. Many users say quitting is the hardest thing they have ever done and any amount of recognition can help someone stay quit. Nicotine is the very addictive substance in tobacco and many vape products. As a result, repeated tobacco and nicotine use is not a habit, it’s an addiction that should be treated as a chronic relapsing condition. It takes most people with a nicotine addiction several tries to quit for good. So reach out to those who have conquered this addiction. Let them know you are proud of how hard they’re working to better their wellbeing. Thank them for improving their health and the health of the people around them. Even though the holidays can be a tough time to quit, they are a great time to support your friends and loved ones who are trying to quit vaping, smoking or other tobacco products. Even if they have tried quitting in the past, encourage them to keep trying – they learn something new every time they try to quit. And share with them the many resources available in MA to help them reach their goal. The most effective way to quit is to use FDA-approved medicines and coaching support together. Nicotine users of all kinds can call 1-800-QUT NOW (1-800-784-8669) for free coaching from the Massachusetts Smokers’ Helpline through phone, web, and text 24 hours each day, seven days a week (except Thanksgiving and Christmas) or enroll online through KeepTryingMA.org. Adults who work with a coach can now receive up to eight weeks of free nicotine patches, gum or lozenges (with medical eligibility) through the Smokers’ Helpline. Smokers and vapers who get support and use medicines to quit are nearly three times as likely to quit for good as those who try to quit on their own. Quitting is hard – give thanks to someone in your life for quitting or for trying to quit. Every email, text message, phone call, or encouraging word makes a difference. Sincerely, Edgar Duran Elmudesi, MSW Metro Boston Tobacco-Free Community Partnership MGC to begin search for new executive director T he Massachusetts Gaming Commission (MGC) Chair Cathy Judd-Stein recently announced that Executive Director Ed Bedrosian is departing the agency to pursue a new opportunity in the private sector. Karen Wells, MGC’s deputy director MassPort Noise Complaint Line: 617-561-3333 and the director of the Investigations and Enforcement Bureau (IEB), has been designated to serve as the interim executive director, a role she previously held in 2015. “On behalf of my fellow commissioners, I would like to thank Executive Director Bedrosian for his leadership and public service over the past four years. He was instrumental in guiding complex regulatory preparations to ensure the successful opening of both MGM Springfield and Encore Boston Harbor. He consistently led and encouraged MGC staff to meet and exceed the demanding professional responsibilities required for what was no less than a true startup operation.” said MGC Chairwoman Cathy Judd-Stein. “We are grateful that Director Wells will once again step forward and serve the Commission in an interim capacity. With seven years of experience at MGC and more than two decades in public service, she is a proven leader who has consistently demonstrated a strong understanding of MGC’s regulatory role, core functions and agency values.” “I would like to thank the Commission and the MGC staff for the opportunity to serve as executive director. This has been an incredible job,” said Bedrosian. “I was privileged these past four years to work with great Commissioners, past and present, to help lead a talented team of professionals who worked hard every day to open and regulate casinos, to license and register people in a new industry, to ensure diversity in both the construction and operations workMGC | SEE PAGE 18 MassHousing completes first Sustainability Bond transaction M assHousing recently issued $108 million in affordable multifamily Housing Bonds with a Sustainability Bond designation, marking the first time the quasi-public agency has issued Sustainability Bonds. The designated Sustainability Bonds, which will finance the preservation and rehabilitation of affordable rental housing communities in Boston and Cambridge, serve as a new tool for reaching mission-driven institutional and retail investors. “Institutional and retail investors are increasingly demanding that their investments drive social impact, and the Sustainability Bond label allows MassHousing to reach new investors who value social equity and environmental action,” said MassHousing Executive Director Chrystal Kornegay. “The proceeds of this bond transaction will allow MassHousing to finance the preservation and modernization of 415 affordable homes, delivering a better quality of life to residents, while lowering property owners’ operating costs and improving environmental performance.” “We are excited that the Sustainability Bond designation allows MassHousing to reach new investors who share our mission, and we look forward to continuing to drive impact, in communities across the Commonwealth,” said MassHousing Chief Financial Officer Charles Karimbakas. MassHousing aligned its first Sustainability Bond offering with the International Capital Market Association’s Green and Social Bond Principles and Sustainability Bond guidelines. The bonds are aligned with the United Nations Sustainable Development Goals of No Poverty, Affordable and Clean Energy, and Sustainable Cities and Communities. BofA Securities and Morgan Stanley were the co-senior managing underwriters for the transaction. MassHousing expects to use the proceeds from the Sustainability Bond transaction to finance the preservation and substantial rehabilitation of two affordable rental communities: The Blue Mountain Apartments, a 217-unit scattered-site rental community in Dorchester and Roxbury, and the Daniel F. Burns Apartments, a 198-unit Cambridge Housing Authority property for elderly and disabled residents. Through the issuance of the Sustainability Bonds, MassHousing will finance the substantial renovation of both properties, including repairs to building envelopes, electrical and plumbing systems, and HVAC. The renovations will make both properties substantially more efficient by lowering energy consumption and water usage. Housing affordability protections at both properties will also be extended. MassHousing uses two main bond resolutions to raise capital and fund its work: Housing Bonds, which help finance the production and preservation of affordable multifamily rental housing, and Single Family Housing Revenue Bonds, which provide capital for mortgages for first-time homebuyers in Massachusetts. Over the past five fiscal years, MassHousing has issued over $1.2 billion in multifamily Housing Bonds and has generated a total of $6.6 billion in affordable single-family and multifamily housing financing, for the benefit of 43,000 households.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, January 3, 2020 Page 9 Basketball: Patriot boys notch first two victories By Greg Phipps T he Revere High School boys’ basketball team reversed the direction of their early season by grabbing their first two victories of the winter. The Patriots edged Wakefield last Friday and followed that up with a 12-point home win over Chelsea on Monday night. The Wakefield win was the consolation game of the Greater Boston/Middlesex League Holiday Tournament. Crisrael Lithgow exploded for 31 points, including 11 field goals and six three-pointers, while no other Patriot player reached double figures in a 53-49 triumph. Amara Bockarie and Calvin Boudreau each chipped in six, and Dillan Day added five for Revere, which took just seven free throws and hit five of them. The Patriots totaled 29 rebounds and shot 59 percent from beyond the threepoint stripe. The scoring output was more balanced in Monday’s 69-57 victory over Chelsea. Nine players made the scoring column. Day led the way with 12 points, followed by 11 from Lithgow. Two others – Derek Avery and John Capozzi – finished with nine, and Boudreau and Scott Toglan each contributed seven. The team was once again Hockey Pats goal ties at Cambridge tournament By Greg Phipps R evere hockey head coach Joe Ciccarello liked what he saw at last week’s First Responders Cup tournament in Cambridge. His team was not able to come away with a win but did earn two ties (one of them ended in a first-round shootout loss). The Revere team, which includes players from Malden and Matignon, fell behind 2-0 to Methuen in the first period of the opening round contest. The Patriots clawed back to even it at two before losing in a shootout to decide which squad advances to the cup final. “We were down 2-0 in the first period. We lost in a shootout but I’m real happy to see us fight back,” said Ciccarello. Revere’s goals were scored by Gerry Visconti and James Marini, and Cam Wickens played well in goal. In a 1-1 tie in the consolation matchup against Somerville, Matt D’Annolfo ended up with Revere’s lone tally. Wickens once again manned the net for the Patriots, who stood at 1-3-2 entering this week. Revere lost both games at the Canalmen’s Tournament in Bourne two weeks ago. The Patriots were shutout, 3-0, by the hosts in the first round and lost to Westfield, 5-1, in the second contest. They resume action at Northeast Metro Tech on Saturday. pretty efficient from three-point land, shooting a respectable 36 percent. Despite producing 22 shots from the foul line, Revere made good on just 13 of them (a 59 percent average). The Patriots were solid on the boards, hauling down 37 rebounds. Capozzi led that effort with 11. The Patriots were defeated by Woburn, 59-44, in the opening round of last week’s holiday tournament. Day was the lone Revere player in double figures with 10 points. Once again, nine players made the score sheet, but the offense had its difficulties, shooting just 29 percent from the field and 3-for-12 from three-point territory. The Patriots, who sat at 2-2 after Monday’s victory, are off until Monday when they travel to take on Somerville at Bunker Hill Community College. They then host Peabody on Wednesday.

During the event, Arrigo spoke about the city’s economic position and thanked business leaders for their contributions. “You are the people who sponsor youth sports teams; you are the people who sponsor the road races, the golf tournaments, the sand sculpting festival and so many other events that bring happiness to so many residents throughout the year,” Arrigo said. “All of you in this room rally with donations and support when misfortune visits our city.” His priorities for 2019 included a recreation center at the Garfield School and a “City Hall On Wheels.” “You have a friend in City Hall, and we will continue to work together,” Arrigo said. “I extend my invitation to you, the leaders of Revere’s business community, to work with me and city government and assure the residents of Revere that the growth we will cultivate will also be the impetus for our prosperity.” Rizzo announces mayoral candidacy Councillor-at-Large Daniel Rizzo announced his candidacy for mayor during his 19th annual St. Patrick’s Day Fundraiser on April 4. “Tonight, we’re going to have a do-over,” Rizzo said. “I’m announcing my candidacy for mayor this November.” Citywide resident parking permit and visitor parking program passes The Traffic Commission voted unanimously in May to adopt a resident citywide parking program ordinance to be effective from 12 a.m. to 6 a.m. Monday to Friday. “There’s a lot involved, and it’s not going to happen overnight,” Parking Director James Rose said.

The SECURE ACT pushes out the required beginning date to take required minimum distributions from your IRA account or 401(k) account from April 1st following the year in which you reach age 70 ½ to April 1st BEACH CITY | FROM PAGE 11 said that in the coming months, statistics would be compiled into a formal report and sent to the state, which would help Revere to justify its request for additional financial support. The commission would track changes in short-term rental activity and calls for police and fire service as well as any increase in activity at local pawn shops and other secondhand dealers. It all revolves around the fact that Revere doesn’t have a surrounding community agreement in place with Wynn Resorts, despite sharing a border with Everett, it isn’t considered a surrounding community. “We want residents to know that we have their back,” Arrigo said. “I can’t control what happens in another city, but I can control what happens here.” Athletics to switch back to Greater Boston League Effective July 1, the Revere Public Schools sports teams departed the Northeastern Conference and returned to the Greater Boston League. Regional principals voted 11-1 to make the reversal. According to Athletic Director Frank Shea, four schools of similar size and competitiveness were voted out of the Northeastern Conference, which contributed to making the reversal. “We don’t have any ill feelings against the Northeastern Conference,” Shea said. “It’s been a great 14 years.” Row Row Row winners share team names, race times and inspiration August saw the Third Annual Row Row Row in Revere Our Race for Autism Awareness, featuring 40 teams – 12 more teams than last year. Proceeds lowing the year in which you reach age 72. Non 5% owners still working do not have to take distributions from their 401(k) plan even if he or she has reached the age of 72. With the passage of the SECURE ACT, IRA contributions are now permitted by taxpayers who have reached age 70 ½. Under the old rule, even though many taxpayers were still gainfully employed at age 70 1/2, the law prohibited them from contributing to an IRA account. You still need earned income in order to contribute to an IRA. Part time workers are now elfoligible to participate in their employer’s 401(k) plan so long as they have worked at least 500 hours per year for at least 3 consecutive years and have attained the age of 21 at the end of that 3- year period. For the first time, if a taxpayer either had a new baby during the tax year or is adopting a child, the 401(k) participant or IRA owner is now allowed to withdraw up to $5,000 within one year following the birth or adoption of a child without paying any 10% early withdrawal penalty for not being age 59 ½. Income taxes would of course still be due on the withdrawal. There has also been a change duck hunting radius. A Home Rule Petition, which mimics a bill that State Representative RoseLee Vincent (D-Revere) filed, would prevent the discharge of firearms for hunting purposes less than 1,500 yards seaward from the shoreline at Revere Beach or Point of Pines. “Picture walking along America’s First Public Beach on a brisk sunny morning anytime between mid-November to lateJanuary, and all of a sudden, you hear ‘Pop, Pop, Pop,’ the sound of gunshots,” Vincent said. “Or that you are a child waiting for the school in the Point of Pines neighborhood of Revere and you begin hearing gunshots.” Amazon In October, Mayor Brian ArAnthony D’Ambrosio from the event went to building two sensory walks at the A.C. Whelan Elementary School and funding events for the Special Education Parent Advisory Council. This year, the route ran from the Point of Pines Yacht Club to the North Shore Marina and back to the Yacht Club. Opening of Community Center marks new era Recreational opportunities for every Revere resident took a giant leap forward on Sept. 21 when Mayor Brian Arrigo cut the ribbon to open the city’s new Community Center at the Garfield School. The Center’s activities include swimming, English for speakers of other languages, Arabic classes, therapeutic sessions, music lessons, sports clinics and basketball. Council approves duck hunting bill On Oct. 7, the City Council unanimously approved special legislation to help establish a rigo announced that Amazon would open a delivery station at the site previously occupied by the 830,000-square-foot Necco candy company at 135 American Legion Hwy. The building would be leased from property owners Atlantic Management and VMD Companies. “This is a leap into Revere’s future as a strong, modernized and prosperous city,” Arrigo said. “Amazon’s investment in our community will invigorate the local economy and promote Revere as a place where prominent, innovation-driven businesses are welcome and can thrive.” Arrigo was also the driving force behind zoning legislation that restricted the property’s use to advanced commercial activity, including technology warehousing and e-commerce. The building became vacant in September of 2018, when Necco abruptly ended operations after 15 years at the location. “The Mayor’s Office, his Economic Development staff and the City Council, particularly to the required minimum distribution rules with respect to designated beneficiaries other than a spouse, a minor beneficiary, a disabled or chronically ill beneficiary, beneficiaries with special needs or a beneficiary within ten years of age of the IRA owner. Under the SECURE ACT, with respect to 401(k) and IRA account owners who die after 12-31-19, a designated beneficiary must now withdraw the entire account balance no later than 10 years after the death of the account owner. This effectively eliminates the “stretch” IRA planning tool which would allow beneficiaries to stretch out the distributions over Ward Councilor John Powers, who was adamant about keeping the Necco site as commercial property, were essential in working with Amazon and bringing assurances that Revere would be a long-term home for the company and its employees,” said Atlantic Management CEO Joseph Zink. “Mayor Arrigo was hyper-focused on increasing employment with smart economic growth policies. This is a big win for Revere and the region,” said VMD Companies Managing Director James L. Vitas II. When the new delivery station opens its doors, Amazon will become Revere’s largest employer and generate a significant increase in commercial tax revenue for the city. Amazon’s arrival also positions the Arrigo Administration to intensify its pursuit of improved regional transportation opportunities, such as a commuter rail stop at nearby Wonderland Station on the MBTA’s Blue Line. Fire destroys local iconic restaurant Often called “the real City Hall,” the Bagel Bin Deli, a popular restaurant along Shirley Avenue, was destroyed by a four-alarm fire on Oct. 15. General Manager Hansi Vlladesi thought it was all a nightmare as he was dozing off to sleep when he received the news that his family restaurant was on fire. “It’s our life,” Vlladesi said. “It was a surreal feeling and we’re still digesting everything.” Yale grad tops School Committee race Anthony D’Ambrosio, a 23-year-old graduate of Yale University, received more than 5,300 votes in the Nov. 5 General Election. “I would love to thank my his or her life expectancy. This is a huge change as a 35 year- old son or daughter inheriting an IRA from a parent under the old law would have over 50 years to withdraw the balance of the 401(k) or IRA account. That would have reduced the annual required minimum distribution substantially. On a $500,000 IRA, instead of withdrawing $10,000 per year in taxable income, the son or daughter would now have to withdraw $50,000 per year in taxable income. The SECURE ACT also applies to Roth IRA’s.

He thanked voters for giving him 14 years on the council and for his colleagues’ working relationships over the years. “I know that my years were spent here just to make Revere a place we can all be proud of, and make sure each neighborhood is adequately represented,” Rizzo said. “I want people to know that I worked as hard as I can to make that happen.” Suffolk Downs redevelopment passed by City Council On Nov. 26, the City Council, in a 10-1 vote, granted a special permit for the Suffolk Downs site, a multiphase, mixed-use, 161-acre development on William F. McClellan Highway. According to Thomas O’Brien, managing director of The HYM Investment Group, the site would feature 2.4 million square feet of office/lab space, which would provide up to 15,000 fulltime jobs. It would also include a 35,000-square-foot Innovation Center and 250,000 square feet of ground floor retail space. Hotel buildings would occupy 130,000 square feet; residential buildings would make up 2.8 million square feet, including 288 units of senior housing. An outBEACH CITY | SEE PAGE 22

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, January 3, 2020 Page 17 Savvy Senior IRS Introduces a Tax Form Created for Older Taxpayers Dear Savvy Senior, A couple months back I read that the IRS will be offering a new senior-friendly tax form this tax season that will be easier to use. What can you tell me about this? Paper Filer Dear Filer, It’s true. The Internal Revenue Service (IRS) has created a new federal income-tax form specifically designed for senior taxpayers, age 65 and older, that should make filing a little easier this year, particularly those who don’t file electronically. Here’s what you should know. Form 1040-SR Created by the 2018 Bipartisan Budget Act, the new two-page simplified federal income tax form is called the 1040-SR. Similar in style to the old 1040-EZ form that the IRS discontinued last year, the new 1040-SR has larger print and better color contrast that makes it easier to read. In addition, it also includes a chart to help older taxpayers calculate their standard deduction, which may help ensure that fewer seniors neglect to take the additional standard deduction that they are entitled to. For 2019, the additional deduction for those 65 or older or the blind is $1,300. The 1040-SR form also has specific lines for retirement income streams such as Social Security benefits, IRA distributions, pensions and annuities, along with earned income from work wages and tips. And, it allows a child tax credit for seniors who are still taking care of a dependent child or grandchild. You can also report capital gains and losses, as well as interest and dividends on this new form. Any of the tax schedules available to those using the standard form 1040 may also be used with the 1040-SR. You should also know that the 1040-SR doesn’t put a limit on interest, dividends, or capital gains, nor does it cap overall income like the old 1040EZ form did. But, if you have to itemize because of state and local taxes or charitable giving, then you will not be able to use the new Form 1040-SR. Paper Filing Advantage Seniors who use tax-preparation software to file their taxes will be able to generate a 1040-SR, but the new form will provide the most significant benefit to taxpayers who still fill out and file their returns on paper. Last year, about 88 percent of the 153 million individual federal tax returns filed to the IRS were filed electronically. About five percent were prepared using tax software, then printed out and mailed to the agency, while about seven percent were prepared on paper. To use the new 1040-SR tax form for the 2019 filing year, taxpayers, including both spouses if filing jointly, must be at least age 65 before Jan. 1, 2020. You also don’t have to be retired to use the form – older workers can use it too. But early retirees (younger than 65) cannot use 1040-SR. To see the 2019 draft version of the new 1040-SR form, go to IRS.gov/pub/irsdft/f1040s—dft.pdf. Tax Preparation Help If you need help filing your tax returns this year, consider contacting the Tax Counseling for the Elderly (or TCE) program.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports the percentage of times local senators voted with their party’s leadership in 2019. Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 144 votes from the 2019 Senate session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. The votes of the 2019 membership of 32 Democrats were compared to House Majority Leader Cynthia Creem (D-Newton), second-in-command in the Senate. We could not compare the Democrats’ votes to those of Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) because by tradition, the Senate president rarely votes. Fourteen (or 43 percent) of the 32 Democratic senators voted with Creem 100 percent of the time. The Democratic senators who voted the lowest percentage of times with Creem were Sens. Michael Moore (DMillbury) and Michael Brady (D-Brockton), who both voted with Creem only 88.1 percent of the time. The votes of the 2019 membership of five Republicans were compared with those of GOP Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). None of the five GOP senators voted with Tarr 100 percent of the time. The Republican senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Tarr was Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) who voted with Tarr only 90.9 percent of the time. PERCENTAGE OF TIMES SENATORS VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP IN 2019 The percentage next to the senator’s name represents the percentage of times the senator supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the senator opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some senators voted on all 144 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll call. The percentage for each senator is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Sen. Joseph Boncore 100 percent (0) 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. During the week of December 23-27, the House met for a total of 28 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 40 minutes. Mon. December 23 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:07 a.m. Senate 11:08 a.m. to 11:39 a.m. Tues. December 24 No House session No Senate session Wed. December 25 No House session No Senate session Thurs.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – Friday, January 3, 2020 Page 19 Massachusetts Emergency Management Program receives national reaccreditation T he Massachusetts Emergency Management Program has received full reaccreditation by the Emergency Management Accreditation Program (EMAP), signifying that the Commonwealth’s Emergency Management Program, led by the Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA), meets or exceeds national standards for emergency management. “Our Emergency Management Program is key to protecting lives, property, and infrastructure during times of crisis,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “By guiding our prevention, preparation, response, and recovery efforts, this program is a framework for confronting the modern hazards that can arise without warning at any time and in any place. I want to commend MEMA staff and leadership for all their work making Massachusetts more resilient and consistently meeting the high standards necessary for EMAP accreditation.” “The reaccreditation of the Emergency Management Program signifies Massachusetts’ ongoing commitment to emergency planning and response,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Thanks to the dedication of the team at MEMA, the Commonwealth’s residents and communities can rely on an Emergency Management Program that meets EMAP standards.” This is the program’s second reaccreditation by the independent body since Massachusetts’ initial accreditation in 2006. “Independent evaluation is important and affirms that the Commonwealth continues to strengthen a comprehensive emergency management program that meets sixty-four industry-recognized standards,” said MEMA Director Samantha Phillips. “Reaccreditation recognizes our ability to convene our partners and work collaboratively in preparation for, and in response to, a disaster of any type.” EMAP is a voluntary national accreditation process for state, territorial and local government programs and included a peer-review on-site assessment by a team of EMAP trained assessors.
