THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Page 5 ~ FIVE QUESTIONS WITH THE CANDIDATE ~ 4. How can the legislature JUAN JARAMILLO T he Democratic Primary for the 19th Suff olk District representative seat, representing Winthrop and a portion of Revere, is on March 2. Following are the answers to questions put to candidate Juan Jaramillo. 1. What is your background and why are running for the 19th Suff olk seat? My family came to America seeking safety after my mom nearly lost her life, and Revere welcomed us with open arms. My parents are janitors who work 80 hour weeks – their sacrifi ces helped me go from cleaning ICU beds after high school to graduating college and serving Revere and Winthrop as Senator Joe Boncore’s Budget and Policy Director where I helped secure millions of dollars in state funding for housing, public transportation, and healthcare. I’m ready to get to work on day one to build a stronger, more worker-friendly economy that helps us recover from COVID without leaving anyone behind. 2. What are the biggest issues you see facing Winthrop and Revere today? Our coastal communities are facing unprecedented challenges from the covid pandemic and climate change. As our state representative, I would focus on pushing for relief that saves small businesses, additional funding for our public schools and community health centers as they battle COVID-19, building infrastructure that protects us from fl ooding, holding large institutions, like Amazon and MassPort, accountable for noise, air, and water pollution, and investing in Revere and Winthrop by creating good-paying jobs that allow all working people to aff ord basic life necessities like housing, food, and saving for their retirement. 3. How can the state and the legislature help hard-hit communities like Revere rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic? The COVID crisis has exposed health, social and economic issues and disparities in the communities of Revere and Winthrop. As your State Representative, I will fi ght for life-saving funding for public schools, community health centers, and small businesses, additional funding for pre- and after-school programs to help families, as well as increased support for workers by expanding critical safety nets, like unemployment and workers’ compensation. We live in a rich state, and can aff ord to protect all small businesses and people from economic suff ering if wealthier households and suburbs paid their fair share in taxes. help balance development in communities like Winthrop and Revere while making sure the communities are still affordable for working class families? As Senator Joe Boncore’s lead staff er on the Housing Committee, I helped pass the largest Housing Bond bill in state history, authorizing $1.8 billion in funding for the development of public and aff ordable housing across Massachusetts. In the Legislature, I will continue advocating for more funding, while pushing for a state-wide solution to our housing problem so that new units are not just built in Revere, Winthrop, and other parts of Greater Boston. If all communities, especially wealthy suburbs, do their part in building real aff ordable housing, we will end homelessness and the displacement of working class families. 5.

Page 6 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 1. What is your background, and why are running for the 19th Suff olk seat? Winthrop and Revere mean everything to me. After serving in WWII, my grandfather, Joe started Stasio Lumber Yard – serving our community for decades. My Nonni Josephine spoke no English, but Revere welcomed her after her home in Italy was bombed. This community made me who I am and inspired me to pursue degrees in Public Health, so that I could have the knowledge needed to make my home truly healthy. After working in the House of Representatives for several years now, I knew I had to run. There’s simply too much at stake for our next State Representative not being able to deliver for us on day one. 2. What are the biggest issues you see facing Winthrop and Revere today? COVID-19 has exacerbated many of the challenges facing our community, and we need ~ FIVE QUESTIONS WITH THE CANDIDATE ~ ALICIA DELVENTO to utilize an equitable public health approach on our most pressing issues: climate change, healthcare, education, resilient infrastructure, and economy. These issues are personal to me. I grew up here, I was educated in our public schools, and I hope to raise my family here – I can’t do that if the Marsh and Beaches disappear, or if we don’t shore up support for working families. While working on the state budget for the Chair of House Ways and Means, I was able to fi ght for progress on many critical issues, including increasing funding for public schools, grants for our small businesses, and passing the “greenest” budget in Massachusetts history. The pandemic is a moment of reckoning and a call to action – we need to work together to build and fund strong, durable systems. ~FLASHBACK~ 31st in a series of photos     3. How can the state and the legislature help hard-hit communities like Revere rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic? I am proud to say I am the only candidate with a comprehensive COVID-19 plan that ensures an equitable approach going forward, especially for our seniors, frontline workers, and immigrants that COVID-19 has disproportionately hurt. Over the last year I have focused on how we can come back stronger while working for a member of the House COVID-19 Economic Recovery Committee. We have to pass a comprehensive economic relief package that helps those who have lost jobs pay their bills and get back to work, and focus on helping our small businesses T he Democratic Primary for the 19th Suff olk District representative seat, representing Winthrop and a portion of Revere, is on March 2. Following are the answers to questions put to candidate Alicia DelVento. and working people, not large corporations. 4. How can the legislature help balance development in communities like Winthrop and Revere while making sure the communities are still aff ordable for working class families? There is an aff ordability problem in Winthrop and Revere, and our working families are getting pushed out. Our legislature can ensure that a portion of commercial development revenue always goes back into the community to lower the cost of living here, and that we develop in a way that is sustainable and takes into account pressing issues like sea-level rise. It’s critical that we examine the structural issues causing the aff ordable housing crisis for those who call Revere and Winthrop home, and I look forward to building coalitions with experts and advocates. Growth should mean bringing people into our community, not pushing them out. 5. What unique skills and qualifications would you bring to Beacon Hill, and how would those skills benefi t the residents of the 19th Suff olk District? I have spent the last four years gaining extensive experience with the Massachusetts House of Representatives – the most of any candidate in this race. This experience includes work under the Chairs of House Ways and Means (which decides the annual budget), Health Care Financing, and State Administration and Regulatory Oversight, as well as for a member of the Special Committee dealing with the Commonwealth’s economic recovery from COVID-19. I am confi dent in this experience and in my relationships there enabling me to hit the ground running in a way that not every freshman representative can. My background is in public health, and I think that is an important perspective to have in government during a public health emergency. My experience in the House, my work in public health, and my commitment to collaborating in community give me a unique ability to deliver for our district.

Goldberg, Chair of the Massachusetts School Building Authority (MSBA), and MSBA Executive Director/Deputy CEO John K. McCarthy announced recently that the MSBA Board of Directors voted to move Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School (Northeast Metro Tech) into the Schematic Design phase. In the Schematic Design phase, the MSBA and the District will look at possible options to replace the existing Northeast Metro Tech with a new facility. The next step is for the MSBA to work in collaboration with the District to produce detailed designs for a potential project. “Thanks to our collaborative work with local offi cials, we are working to build a 21st century educational facility that will provide Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational Technical students with a top-notch learning environment,” said Goldberg. The proposed project would replace the existing Northeast Metro Tech with a new facility on the site of the existing school. The District identifi ed in their Statement of Interest numerous deficiencies and structural integrity issues, including mechanical, electrical and plumbing systems, as well as envelope issues, including windows and roof defi ciencies. In addition to physical plant issues, the District reported that the existing facility does not support the delivery of its educational program, as well as existing and projected overcrowding. “The new Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational Technical High School will mean a better learning and teaching location for students and teachers,” stated McCarthy. The MSBA partners with Massachusetts communities to support the design and construction of educationally appropriate, flexible, sustainable and cost-eff ective public school facilities. Since its 2004 inception, the Authority has made over 1,750 site visits to more than 250 school districts as part of its due diligence process and has made over $14.9 billion in reimbursements for school construction projects.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Page 7 ~ FIVE QUESTIONS WITH THE CANDIDATE ~ JEFFREY TURCO T he Democratic Primary for the 19th Suff olk District representative seat, representing Winthrop and a portion of Revere, is on March 2. Following are the answers to questions put to candidate Jeff Turco. 1. What is your background and why are running for the 19th Suff olk seat? I’m a father, a husband, a son, a brother, a neighbor, a coach, a lawyer, a friend, a lector, a cancer survivor and the ONLY candidate in this race with deep roots in Revere AND Winthrop. And I’m a working-class Democrat. For my entire adult life, I’ve been dedicated to helping the residents of our community, whether it’s as an elected offi cial in Winthrop, serving as the President of the Revere Beach Partnership or helping to infl uence the next generation of our district by fundraising and coaching various youth programs. My love of family has guided my values and strong commitment to our neighborhoods. I believe I have a duty to try and serve our community so that our children grow up in a world better than the one we grew up in. I’ve been on the campaign trail not speaking to voters, but listening. Your concerns are my concerns and I’m ready tackle whatever comes our way. 2. What are the biggest issues you see facing Winthrop and Revere today? Education is the great equalizer. It is our responsibility to provide all students with the opportunity to succeed. Regardless of your background, your socioeconomic group or your place of birth, education creates hope for the future. For this reason, I will work to ensure greater equal educational opportunities for all of our children and will work to achieve greater accountability in our education system. This starts with demanding that our schools be opened now. Our children are falling further and further behind every day and it is critical that our public schools be opened for in person learning immediately. As the husband of a former fi rst grade teacher, I appreciate what a labor of love teaching is for so many educators. We must work to give teachers the tools so they can share that love with our kids. In addition, the Commonwealth’s failing mental health and substance use disorder treatment programs will be a top priority for me. The tragedy of this issue has touched nearly every family in Winthrop and Revere... including my own. The pandemic has only worsened this crisis. The widespread use of Narcan has saved lives but hasn’t help address the core problems. My experience at the Sheriff ’s Offi ce and in our Courts reinforced my view that addressing these issues must be a top priority. 3. How can the state and the MBTA to announce service changes for March and April T he MBTA Service Planning team will be hosting virtual public meetings on Wednesday, February 17 and Wednesday, February 24 from 6-8 p.m. to share the temporary schedule changes that will take eff ect in March and April. The MBTA is implementing service changes in response to the low ridership caused by the COVID-19 pandemic. Changes on the bus network and subway system will begin on March 14. This will reduce frequency on some bus and subways lines and eliminate, shorten, or legislature help hard-hit communities like Revere rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic? While the pandemic has impacted budgets of every level of government, we need elected offi cials focused on making the promises that are made in the legislation a reality. Our residents deserve more than victory laps and press conferences. What they need right now is food on their tables, housing stability and reasonable accommodations for at-home or hybrid learning. My professional experience will allow me to hit the ground running as your new State Representative, no distractions. 4. How can the legislature help balance development in communities like Winthrop and Revere while making sure the communities are still affordable for working class families? For starters, we need logical investments in the expansion of the MBTA. Public Transportation will help increase investment in our communities while reducing carbon emissions and road miles of private vehicles. Our neighborhoods are desirable with the shore in our backyard and a close proximity to the City of Boston; developers have become less and less shy. We need accountability. We need to make sure our small businesses survive not only the pandemic, but the corporate giants who see our communities as an easy target. Amazon for one is expanding their footprint locally, and they should be required to do so in a way that guarantees sustainable growth for our communities and ensures fair and equitable standards for its employees. 5. What unique skills and qualifi cations would you bring to Beacon Hill, and how would those skills benefit the residents of the 19th Suff olk District? As a resident of Revere for 33 years, and for the last 16 years as a resident of Winthrop, I am uniquely suited to understand and advocate for the issues we are facing in our communities. I’m running for State Representative, because as a proud father of 6, I know that the decisions we make today will impact generations to come. My experience as an attorney paired with my deep local roots has given me the ideal blend of experience and professionalism to get the job done. I have the know-how to be a strong leader for the 19th Suff olk District in these most uncertain times. combine various bus routes. The Commuter Rail will also undergo additional scheduling changes, starting April 5. During the virtual public meetings, the team will share information as to why the route changes are necessary and off er insight into the service planning process. They will also share specifi c information about the service changes and impacted routes. Attendees are welcomed to ask questions and provide feedback regarding the service changes that will go into eff ect.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Northeast Metro Tech students help with renovation of historic Stoneham Fire Station WAKEFIELD – Stoneham Fire Chief Matthew Grafton and Superintendent David DiBarri of Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School (Northeast Metro Tech) recently announced a collaboration between the Stoneham Fire Department and Northeast Metro Tech. Approximately 30 students from the plumbing, electrical, carpentry and HVAC programs will be working at the 105-yearold fi re station for the next few months in order to help renovate and update the space. Students will work in groups of fi ve in order to comply with COVID-19 guidelines. The work will consist of renovating a second fl oor to accommodate the needs of the department, relocating the kitchen to the second fl oor and turning the former kitchen space into a gear storage room – and various other small projects, such as replacing the wheelchair ramp at the front of the building. These projects will help to upgrade the space, as well as increase health and safety conditions at the facility for members of the department. Currently, the kitchen is located right off the apparatus floor and gear is stored nearby as well. Creating this separation of the working and living areas will help to reduce this risk of exposing fi refi ghters to carcinogens left on gear before it is washed and cleaned after being worn and used for a call. The bathroom renovation will help to fi x plumbing leaks and repair the dilapidated bathroom to provide an upgraded space for fi refi ghters to use. To ensure the work maintained the historic nature of the building, Grafton presented the plans to the Massachusetts Historical Commission, which approved the plans. “It’s a win-win for everyone,” Grafton said. “The students learn from their experience, the fi re department has a healthier work environment and taxpayers are able to save a signifi cant amount of money by not having to pay the cost of labor. We greatly appreciate Northeast Metro Tech for helping us and are happy to help them gain this experience. This work wouldn’t be possible without them.” The group initially began working on the project in early 2020, but had to pause due to the COVID-19 pandemic. AlNortheast Metro Tech students repaired the ramp outside of the Stoneham Fire Department to allow for safer access to the building.

The project manager and the City of Revere are currently negotiating a contract with the fi rm for the project, Kelly said at Tuesday’s school committee meeting. “Hopefully, at the next school committee meeting, or shortly thereafter, they will be able to present to the committee some of the big picture ideas that they have,” Kelly said. “Their primary task once we get going will be to fi nalize where this high school is going to be. That is the big question.” The MSBA gave initial approval to the new high school building project at the end of 2018, giving school and City offi cials news it had waited to hear for nearly three years at that point. When the MSBA approval was help our students gain handson experience and show their support for our community partners,” DiBarri said. “Partnerships like this help to enrich the lives of our students and I know this is something that they really look forward to each week.” fi rst announced, Mayor Brian Arrigo stated the entire design and construction process could take from six to eight years. The current Revere High School will likely be at least a half-century old before a new school opens. The building at 101 School St. opened in September 1974, and while functional, the nearly half-centuryold building has lagged behind the new high schools built in surrounding communities that have a more decided 21st -century focus. According to project manager Leftfi eld, schematic designs for the new high school would be submitted to the MSBA by next spring, with the fi nalization of the project scope and budget taking place in the early summer of 2022. Perkins Eastman’s work includes a long list of accomplishments, including Rutgers University School of Nursing, the District Wharf in Washington, D.C., and mixed-use developments in Chicago and elementary schools in New York.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Page 9 ~ FIVE QUESTIONS WITH THE CANDIDATE ~ VALENTINO CAPOBIANCO T he Democratic Primary for the 19th Suff olk District representative seat, representing Winthrop and a portion of Revere, is on March 2. Following are the answers to questions put to candidate Valentino Capobianco. 1. What is your background and why are running for the 19th Suff olk seat? I grew up in Winthrop and I have spent the last decade actively involved in public service to make our community stronger. I currently serve on the Winthrop School Committee, and in the past worked as the Chief of Staff for State Senator Paul Feeney, a Community Liaison for Sheriff Peter Koutoujian, and a Legislative Aide for Speaker DeLeo. I am running for State Representative so that I can use my decade of experience in public service to ensure that current and future generations can thrive and prosper right here in Winthrop and Revere. 2. What are the biggest issues you see facing Winthrop and Revere today? The biggest issues facing our community today are COVID recovery, education, and healthcare. As a Chief of Staff in the Massachusetts Senate, I have seen fi rst-hand what families and businesses are going through, and how important emergency measures like rapid vaccine distribution, extended unemployment benefits, and emergency hazard pay are to families. On the School Committee, I learned just how hard it was to successfully fi ght for an increase in teacher pay and to fi nance the construction of our new Middle-High School. As the son of a nurse who specializes in substance abuse treatment, I know how hard it is for people suff ering from addiction and mental health problems to get the care that they need. I will take the experiences with me to Beacon Hill and fi ght for the future that our community deserves. 3. How can the state and the legislature help hard-hit communities like Revere rebound from the Covid-19 pandemic? The first priority of the legislature should be to facilitate a speedy recovery from COVID-19 that doesn’t leave families behind. In order to do that, we must fi rst ensure that the vaccine is rolled out as quickly and as equitably as possible. We need to extend emergency measures like expanded unemployment benefi ts, emergency sick time, and eviction moratoriums. Additionally, we must also protect our small businesses. As a State Representative, I will work closely with our local businesses and Chambers of Commerce to identify areas where the State can help our small businesses with measures like tax relief, regulation changes, and bridge loans to keep these cornerstones of our community on their feet during this crisis. 4. How can the legislature help balance development in communities like Winthrop and Revere while making sure the communities are still affordable for working class families? We need the State to do more to fund our children’s future so we aren’t overly reliant on property tax increases in order to fund our schools. I am a strong supporter of the Student Opportunity Act, which will provide an additional $12.5 million in funding to Winthrop and Revere. We also must expand access to public transportation in order to link workers and businesses in our community with jobs and customers. Projects like the Blue Line Expansion are a great place to start, and I am proud to have earned the support of Transport Workers Union Local 2054 because of my commitment to expanding public transit. Lastly, we must hold MASSPORT accountable when they cause damage to our community. When I served on the Winthrop Airport Hazards Committee, I joined my fellow committee members in successfully lobbying Congresswoman Clark’s offi ce for Federal Mitigation Funding in the form of soundproof windows. As a State Rep, I will fi ght to make sure this funding is fully released, and will continue to hold MASSPORT accountable when they cause damage in our community. We can help you buy a house. So you can create a home. WHETHER YOU’RE READY TO BUY OR REFINANCE, WE’LL GUIDE YOU THROUGH THE WHOLE PROCESS. TALK TO ONE OF OUR RESIDENTIAL LENDERS TODAY.  5. What unique skills and qualifi cations would you bring to Beacon Hill, and how would those skills benefit the residents of the 19th Suff olk District? In this race, voters do not have to choose between a candidate with experience and a candidate with a bold, forward-thinking vision for change. I bring to the table bold plans to get us through the pandemic, strengthen our public schools, and guarantee access to quality, affordable, healthcare as well as a track record of results from my decade in public service. On the Winthrop School Committee, I led the charge on getting our teachers a pay raise and fi nancing the Construction of our new, stateof-the-art Middle-High School. On the Winthrop Airport Hazards Committee, I fought to make sure our communities were treated fairly, and that MASSPORT was held accountable for the damage it has caused. As the Chief of Staff for Senator Paul Feeney and a Legislative Aide to Speaker DeLeo, I learned the value of accessibility and constituent service. Voters can count on me being ready on Day 1 should I have the honor of serving as their next State Representative. AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE CA$H FOR YOUR CAR! DRIVE IT - PUSH IT - TOW IT!

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 EMILY’s List endorses DelVento in Massachusetts Special Election WASHINGTON, D.C. – On Thursday, EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, endorsed Alicia DelVento in the special election for Massachusetts House District 19. Stephanie Schriock, president of EMILY’s List, released the following statement: “EMILY’s List is excited to endorse Alicia DelVento for the Massachusetts House. Raised on Winthrop’s water tower hill, the granddaughter of a union laborer and a war refugee, Alicia has deep roots in her community and strong ties to educators, nurses, and essential workers. After working for four SCHOOLS | FROM Page 1 input into the struggles the city has faced with the schools coming up quickly on one year of remote learning. Last month, after some heated debate, the School Committee approved a motion seeking to have at least some students return to classrooms by March 1. “I know people have questions about this, but we are still working with the Revere Teachers’ Association (RTA) on a plan to continue our impact bargaining to return to in-person learning in a hybrid model,” said Kelly. On the positive side, Kelly said she’s encouraged to see the COVID-19 positivity rates coming down for several weeks in a row. While Kelly said she knows there is anxiety in parents, students and teachers about the continued remote learning in Revere while nearby communities like Winthrop and Saugus are in classrooms, she noted that Revere is not the only community that has stuck with a remote learning model due to high COVID-19 rates. She also repeated that there has been a plan in years as committee staff in the Massachusetts House, Alicia has the critical experience to serve the people of Winthrop and Revere and will fi ght to increase public school funding, protect women’s access to reproductive health care, and advocate for working families.” About EMILY’s List EMILY’s List, the nation’s largest resource for women in politics, has raised over $700 million to elect pro-choice Democratic women candidates. With a grassroots community of over fi ve million members, EMILY's List helps Democratic place since August for when students are ready to return to the school buildings. “Our goal is to begin with our special needs students and get them back for in-person learning,” said Kelly. “We recognize that those are the kids who have been struggling the most in our remote environment. Then we will bring in more and more students until we are up to our roughly 50 percent capacity, with as many kids who want to participate in a hybrid model.” The hybrid model in Revere will diff er from that being used in some other school districts, Kelly said. “Our version of a hybrid model will be one week on and one week off ,” she said. “People should anticipate a more traditional school day similar to what we had pre-COVID.” To make the learning environment safer, Kelly said, the district is continuing to work with the state on a COVID-19 testing program for students and school employees. Kelly also highlighted the improvements to ventilation and fi ltration systems in the schools to help make classrooms safer. women win competitive campaigns – across the country and up and down the ballot – by recruiting and training candidates, supporting and helping build strong campaigns, researching the issues that impact women and families, running nearly $50 million in independent expenditures in the last cycle alone, and turning out women voters and voters of color to the polls. Since its founding in 1985,EMILY’s list has helped elect the country’s fi rst woman as vice president, 157 women to the House, 26 to the Senate, 16 governors and more than 1,300 women During the public speaking portion of Tuesday’s meeting, several Revere High students spoke about the challenges they have faced with remote learning and their desire to be back in the classroom. Senior Dillan Day said the remote classes are not as challenging as those in-person and there isn’t as much interaction between students and teachers with remote learning. “I’ve had classes that had only three students speak all semester,” said Day. “We are being deprived of the in-person relationships.” He said the isolation of remote learning has left him and many other students feeling like they have nothing to look forward to when they wake up to begin the school day. Ward 4 City Councillor Patrick Keefe praised the eff orts of teachers during the pandemic, but he advocated for a return to in-person learning to help those students and families struggling with remote learning. “How can we turn our backs on our highest-need learners?” Keefe asked, with English Language Learners and special needs students esto state and local offi ce. More than 40 percent of the candidates EMILY’s List have helped elect to Congress have been women of color. After the 2016 election, more than 60,000 women reached out to EMILY’s List about running for offi ce – laying the groundwork for the next decade of candidates for local, state and national offi ces. In an eff ort to elect more women in offi ces across the country, EMILY’s List has created a Run to Win program, expanded its training program, including a Training Center online, and trained thousands of women. pecially at risk. Keefe said that the school buildings belong to the City of Revere and that the mayor, superintendent and School Committee should have the authority to reopen the buildings. “I request the immediate opening of the schools for our highest risk populations,” said Keefe. However, several teachers spoke during the meeting to reiterate that while they want to be back in front of their students, it has to be done safely. Kristen Martin, a teacher at the Garfi eld School, said that she believed the March 1 opening date voted on by the School Committee was a fl exible date, but that there has been a hardline taken with regards to negotiations with the RTA. Martin noted that the state has delayed the vaccination dates for teachers and that there are still some troubling COVID-19 numbers in Revere. “What we are asking for is to return when it is safe and vaccines are available,” said Martin. “We are asking for transparency, honesty and consistency from our school offi cials.” JARAMILLO | FROM Page 5 those skills benefit the residents of the 19th Suff olk District? Our representative should understand our challenges from a personal level. I share the lived experience of many of our most marginalized residents, have served our community, and am proud that I have the experience to represent us eff ectively from day one. As Budget and Policy Director for State Senator Joe Boncore, I helped secure $150,000 to launch the Revere Substance Use Disorder Initiative, millions to expand access to the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center to Revere and Winthrop residents, and millions of dollars of funding for our public schools and afterschool programs for our youth. Teacher and coach Joseph Ciccarello said he has heard the frustrations from the students, and he said he believes there should be a way to get students and teachers who want to be in the classrooms back in the buildings. “What might be easier to get the ball rolling is athletics,” said Ciccarello. “There seems to be way less hurdles to let athletes start playing and then let the kids back in the building.” Kelly said the district plan is still to have some form of all three athletic seasons and that the athletic department has been in contact with the other schools in the Greater Boston League to help make that happen. Ryan Doucette, the School Committee’s student representative, has taken an active role on the Committee, advocating for his fellow students to return to in-person learning. “We want to remember this year not for the adversity that we faced, but for how we overcame it,” said Doucette. “I think there is still some time left the overcome this adversity, but we are running out of time.”                                        

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Page 11 Revere Works coalition awarded $100K by Urban Agenda Grant Program T he Revere Works coalition, which is led by The Neighborhood Developers (TND), was awarded $100,000 by the Executive Office of Housing and Economic Development through the Urban Agenda Grant Program. The funded project’s main goal is to build a continuum of soft skills, computer literacy and computer skills training programs. It will leverage in-kind support from the City of Revere, laptop lending libraries housed at the Revere Community School and TND and funding from Massachusetts General Hospital and the Massachusetts Health Policy Commission. This grant is the third awarded to Revere Works through the Urban Agenda Grant Program, which helped seed the coalition of City departments, workforce training agencies, and educational providers serving Revere residents through coordinated workforce development planning and programming and employer and community engagement. Before the COVID-19 pandemic, programing was focused on building the skills needed for employment in the travel and hospitality sector, and has since shifted to accommodate the new, post-pandemic demands of the workforce. COVID-19 has accelerated the move to virtual hiring platforms, which require job seekers to be computer literate and possess basic English skills – a signifi cant hurdle for the more than 25% of Revere residents who do not speak English fl uently. Revere Works will build new bridges between organizations to formalize client referrals from one provider to another, and subsequently into jobs. For instance, job seekers who aren’t eligible for the IT job training program of Moroccan American Connections in Revere (MACIR) will be referred to ESOL, computer literacy or soft skills trainings to better prepare them for future enrollment. After completing these trainings, the job seekers would be referred back to MACIR. Additionally, job seekers could enroll in TND’s construction and building maintenance pre-apprenticeship program or other advanced training opportunities. The training continuum includes: • Women Encouraging Empowerment’s ESOL, English and job training classes • Revere Community Schools’ advanced ESOL and computer skills classes • MACIR’s Tech Support Job Program and soft skills training, including internships and IT job placement • TND/CONNECT’s soft skills training and one-on-one fi nancial coaching • A formalized referral system to move participants along the workforce development continuum The Revere Works coalition includes Women Encouraging Empowerment, Revere Community Schools, MACIR, TND/ CONNECT, the Massachusetts General Hospital Center for Community Health Improvement, and the City of Revere. The City of Revere has recently developed a Revere Works website that serves as a central hub for job seekers and employers. The website can be found at https://www.revere.org/revere-works.

Eliseo Vaquerano Canas, a/k/a “Peligroso,” 21, a national of El Salvador, pleaded guilty to conspiracy to conduct enterprise affairs through a pattern of racketeering activity, more commonly referred to as RICO or racketeering conspiracy. As part of his guilty plea, Vaquerano Canas admitted that his racketeering activity involved the July 30, 2018 murder of a 17-year-old boy in Lynn. U.S. Senior District Court CHALLENGES | FROM Page 1 to manage the challenges that come with growth and prosperity. We even embraced and shook hands when it was over.” Fast forward to 2021, and Arrigo was delivering the annual address online over the now familiar channels of Zoom, YouTube and Facebook Live. As expected, a good portion of the mayor’s speech addressed the unique challenges Revere and the world have faced during the COVID-19 pandemic. But Arrigo also took time to tout the achievements the City of Revere and his administration have been working on to improve Revere since 2016. “Tonight, as we refl ect on the past, we can also look confidently toward the future,” Arrigo said, “not in spite of – but because of – what the last year has taught us. Revere stands poised to build on the shared values that have brought us together and provide a solid foundation for every person in our city.” The mayor said the hardships of the past year will not thwart the city’s progress and eff orts to pursue decent employment, good health, quality housing and opportunity. “Before we look to the future, however, we must accept, as a community, the truth that this virus that has upended our lives will continue to do so for the foreseeable future,” he said. “Our health depends on all of us to do simple but vital acts like social distancing and wearing a mask. Even as we work to vaccinate our residents, we must remain vigilant and endure the sacrifi ces necessary to protect our neighbors, our families and ourselves.” The City of Revere staff and residents who rose up to meet the challenge of the pandemic Judge Mark L. Wolf scheduled sentencing for June 18, 2021. MS-13 is a transnational street gang operating in Massachusetts and numerous other states, as well as countries such as El Salvador, Honduras and Guatemala. MS-13 members follow certain core rules and principles, including that members attack and attempt to kill members of rival gangs, and members do not act as informants or cooperate with law enforcement. MS-13 is organized in Massachusetts and elsewhere in the form of “cliques” or smaller groups that operate under the earned special praise from Arrigo. “Undaunted, our city staff rose to every challenge,” he said. “They committed the hours and the energy required to undertake all of the new work that a global pandemic requires, and they have done it now for nearly a year. Every day, I witnessed my colleagues perform tasks that went above and beyond their duties.” Arrigo noted that Revere was one of the fi rst cities in the state to activate an emergency response team to address the challenges of the pandemic. In addition to the city staff , Arrigo thanked the many volunteers, faith-based and nonprofit organizations, school nurses and volunteers who have stepped up to the plate during the crisis. “One person I am compelled to recognize by name is Dr. Nathalee Kong,” said Arrigo. “Less than a year after her appointment as chair of the Board of Health, she was thrown into the middle of a massive public health crisis. We consistently relied on her expertise, advice and judgment to chart our course. In the same way that she provides comfort to so many of our residents in her office on Ocean Ave., Dr. Kong responded with patience and compassion. She has been our most vital connection to trusted medical information.” For the local business community struggling with the pandemic, Arrigo touted the economic development team that helped provide over 100 emergency small business grants. And with Revere facing some of the highest unemployment rates in Massachusetts, Arrigo said, the administration worked with area leaders to create Revere Works, off ering workforce development opportunities throughout the community. Outside the pandemic eff orts, larger mantle of MS-13. Vaquerano Canas was a member of the Sykos Locos Salvatrucha clique of MS-13. Court documents showed that Vaquerano Canas had “homeboy” status in MS-13, which is generally achieved by committing a signifi cant act of violence. Vaquerano Canas was indicted in federal court in 2018 following an investigation into the murder of a teenage boy whose body was found in a Lynn park on Aug. 2, 2018. The injuries to the victim’s body indicated that the victim had been stabbed dozens of times. As part of his Arrigo highlighted many of the eff orts made to streamline city government and City Hall operations. In addition to continued expansion of the 311 information system, and the necessity of moving to almost exclusively online meeting formats due to COVID-19, Arrigo announced the launch of Engage Revere. The online tool will allow residents to frequently share their feedback with the City of Revere on a broad range of topics, Arrigo stated. Arrigo pointed out how development has continued in the city over the past year, even under challenging circumstances. Amazon began operations at the former Necco site on American Legion Highway and quickly became the city’s leading private employer, providing hundreds of new jobs and millions of dollars in new commercial tax revenue, he said. At Suff olk Downs, Arrigo said, shovels are on the ground and noticeable construction should be underway by the end of 2021. He also mentioned the opening of new hotels on Revere Beach Parkway and the American Legion Highway and construction of a third new hotel abutting the Wonderland T station. “In a matter of months, the south end of Revere Beach Boulevard and Ocean Avenue will become home to new residents and a new restaurant … that will bring life back to a stretch of property that sits just steps away from the ocean,” Arrigo said. “And shortly, I will submit to the City Council a Master Plan for the transformation of the city’s RiverFront District. This underutilized section of the city will be revived by development that includes upgrades to Gibson Park, the establishment of a community boating center and the redevelopment of a former guilty plea, Vaquerano Canas admitted that on or about July 30, 2018, he participated in that murder while a member of the MS-13 gang. Vaquerano Canas faces a sentence of up to life in prison. He will also be subject to deportation upon the completion of his sentence. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and other statutory factors. United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; Joseph R. Bonavolonta, Special Agent in Charge of the Federal Bureau tow yard. The RiverFront project will include innovative technology to address area fl ooding and traffi c while creating recreational space in an area long overlooked.” On the housing front, Arrigo said his administration has continued eff orts to aid vulnerable homeowners and renters. “This year we will propose the formation of an Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund to coordinate sustained public and private resources and support critically important aff ordable housing programs and services for all residents,” he said. Arrigo said the city will continue to strengthen its workforce development plans in the coming year, as well as continuing to prioritize economic development programs that give small business owners the opportunity to originate and grow in Revere. “We will build out a citywide food truck program to engage local entrepreneurs and activate public spaces – spaces that will be host to additional COVID-safe community events and outdoor seating this summer,” Arrigo said. “And with state funding, we will develop economic recovery strategies for our Broadway Business District. In addition to focusing on local issues, Arrigo spoke of how Revere has begun to address some of the larger divisions impacting the country. “As we strive to lay the groundwork for an equitable recovery from this public health and economic crisis, we bear witness to raw and bitter divisiveness across our country,” he said. “Revere is not immune to these challenges, but we are committed to assuring all our residents that unity in our city is not just a spoken ideal, but it is our never-ending purpose. And we will conof Investigation, Boston Field Division; William S. Walker, Acting Special Agent in Charge of Homeland Security Investigations in Boston; Colonel Christopher Mason, Superintendent of the Massachusetts State Police; Essex County District Attorney Jonathan Blodgett; Acting Boston Police Commissioner Gregory Long; and Lynn Police Chief Michael Mageary made the announcement.

Near the end of his address, Arrigo took a moment to address the city’s students and parents, who have faced a year of educational uncertainty. “I know that so many of you have suff ered greatly over the last year,” he said. “And while the anger and anxiety that surrounds remote learning continues to hang over our heads, I am here tonight to say that there is a light at the end of the tunnel. In partnership with [Superintendent] Dr. [Dianne] Kelly, our School Committee and the Revere Teachers Association, I want you to know that we will do everything in our power to get our kids back into their classrooms where they belong – because we can all agree that our students deserve the best, and as each day passes, it is getting safer and safer to make this happen.” Arrigo rounded out his speech by continuing to focus on the light at the end of the COVID-19 tunnel. “There will be a new day when we will again share smiles and hugs and all of our favorite pastimes,” he said. “There will be gatherings of friends and family – and celebrations – lots of celebrations. There also will come a day when we will unveil a suitable memorial where our community can stand together to honor those we have lost to this pandemic. Our collective perseverance, our good will and our courage will see us through.”

Dear Savvy Senior, I will turn 65 in a few months and plan to keep working for several more years. I have good health insurance from my employer now. Do I have to sign up for Medicare when I reach 65? Looking Ahead Dear Looking, Whether you need to enroll in Medicare at 65 if you continue to work and have health insurance through your job depends on how large your employer is. The same rules apply if your health insurance comes from your spouse’s job. But fi rst, let’s review the basics. Remember that original Medicare has two parts: Part A, which provides hospital coverage and is free for most people. And Part B, which covers doctor’s bills, lab tests and outpatient care. Part B also has a monthly premium, which is $148.50 for most benefi - ciaries in 2021, but is higher for individuals earning above $88,000. If you’re already receiving Social Security, you’ll automatically be enrolled in parts A and B when you turn 65, and you’ll receive your Medicare card in the mail. It will include instructions to return it if you have work coverage that qualifi es you for late enrollment. If you aren’t yet receiving Social Security, you will have to apply, which you can do online at SSA.gov/medicare. If you plan to continue working past the age of 65 and have health insurance from your job, your fi rst step is to ask your benefi ts manager or human resources department how your employer insurance works with Medicare. In most cases, you should at least take Medicare Part A because it’s free. (Note: If you’re funding a health savings account you may not want to take Part A because you can’t make contributions after you enroll). But to decide whether to take Part B or not will depend on the size of your employer. Small Employer If your current employer has fewer than 20 employees, Medicare will be your primary insurer and you should enroll in Medicare Part B during your initial enrollment period. This is a sevenmonth period that includes the three months before, the month Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma of, and the three months after your 65th birthday. If you miss the seven-month sign-up window, you’ll have to wait until the next general enrollment period, which runs from Jan. 1 to March 31 with benefi ts beginning the following July 1. You’ll also incur a 10 percent penalty for each year you wait beyond your initial enrollment period, which will be tacked on to your monthly Part B premium. Large Employer If your employer has 20 or more employees, your employer’s group health plan will be your primary insurer as long as you remain an active employee. If this is the case, you don’t need to enroll in Part B when you turn 65 if you’re satisfi ed with the coverage you are getting through your job. But if you do decide to enroll in Medicare, it will supplement your employer insurance by paying secondary on all of your claims. Once your employment or group health coverage ends, you will then have eight months to sign up for Part B without a penalty. This is known as the Special Enrollment Period. Check Drug Coverage You also need to verify your prescription drug coverage. Call your benefi ts manager or insurance company to fi nd out if your employer’s prescription drug coverage is considered “creditable.” If it is, you don’t need to enroll in a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan. If it isn’t, you should purchase a plan (see Medicare. gov/plan-compare) during your initial enrollment period or you’ll incur a premium penalty (1 percent of the average national premium for every month you don’t have coverage) if you enroll later. If you have more questions or need help, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (see ShiptaCenter.org), which off ers free Medicare counseling. Or call the Medicare Rights Center helpline at 800-333-4114. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.

There were no roll calls in the House last week. All roll calls are on proposed amendments to the rules by which the Senate operates. Senators proposed a total of 50 amendments to the rules but only seven were approved while 43 were rejected. Sponsors and proponents of the defeated amendments said that the amendments were needed in order to ensure more transparency and to make the rules fairer to both parties. “The Senate did important work by passing a rules package with changes that will promote the vital values of diversity, transparency, safety and training,” said Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem) who headed the task of drafting new rules for the 2021-2022 session. “A majority of senators rejected inserting a third check-in to continue KITCHEN CABINETS To Look Like New 508-840-0501 FURNITURE STRIP & FINISH doing business at 10 p.m. in addition to the ones at 8 p.m. and midnight; mandating immediate antiharassment and bystander intervention training because development of online trainings, given COVID-19 are still underway; setting standards for hearings in the Senate and joint rules because they are more appropriately included in the emergency rules; and tripling the representation of the minority party on the Redistricting Committee because we [already] passed [an] amendment doubling this representation. I am proud of the amendments that did pass that made an already strong package of rules even stronger.” REQUIRE UNANIMOUS VOTE TO GO BEYOND MIDNIGHT (S 10) Senate 6-34, rejected an amendment that would require a unanimous vote for the Senate to continue any session beyond midnight. Current Senate rules require a twothirds vote to go beyond midnight. Amendment supporters said sessions after midnight when taxpayers are sleeping, and some members are barely awake, are irresponsible and should only be held if 100 percent of the senators agree there is a major emergency. Amendment opponents said going beyond midnight currently is only done when there is a dire emergency. They said it is often impossible to get a unanimous vote on anything and argued it is not wise to give a single member the power to adjourn the Senate. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring a unanimous vote to go beyond midnight. A “No” vote is against requiring it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No REQUIRE TWO-THIRDS VOTE TO GO BEYOND 10 P.M. (S 10) Senate 6-34, rejected an amendment that would require a twothirds vote for the Senate to continue any session beyond 10 p.m. Current rules require a two-thirds vote to continue beyond 8 p.m. and a separate two-thirds vote to continue beyond midnight but do not require any vote at all to continue from 10 p.m. to midnight. Amendment supporters said this is another useful opportunity for members to control late night sessions and make them as rare as possible. Amendment opponents said the amendment goes too far and is unnecessary. (A “Yes” vote is for requiring a twothirds vote to go beyond 10 p.m. A “No” vote is against requiring it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No ANTI-HARASSMENT TRAINING (S 10) Senate 10-29, rejected an amendment that would require all State House members, offi cers and staff , regardless of when they are hired, to receive anti-harassment and bystander intervention training within 90 days of beginning employment. The current rules require members, offi cers and staff who are employed at the beginning of the biennial session to receive the training within 90 days of the opening of the session while employees hired after the first training must complete their training at the “next available training opportunity.” Amendment supporters said “next available training opportunity” is vague and could mean the training would not take place for many months or even a year. They said the amendment guarantees everyone gets the training during their fi rst 90 days of employment. Amendment opponents said that the training was held in person prepandemic but will soon be online. They said it is unclear when that will occur and argued it is too early to adjust this rule when it is not yet known whether the online sessions will be live or on video. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No WATCH REMOTE HEARINGS (S 10) Senate 6-33, rejected an amendment that would require any public hearing conducted remotely to utilize technology that allows people to view or hear the hearing live on one or more publicly accessible platforms which allow people to tune into the hearing via computer and telephone. Amendment supporters said that it is important to have a standardized system and requirements in the regular, non-emergency Senate rules, that ensure the public can access these hearings. Amendment opponents said that this amendment is already included in the emergency rules the Senate 2021-2022 Senate Committee Assignments Majority Leadership President Majority Leader President Pro Tempore President Emerita Assistant Majority Leader Assistant Majority Leader Assistant Majority Leader Majority Whip Assistant Majority Whip Ways and Means Rodrigues - CHAIR Friedman - VICE Lewis - ASST VICE Barrett Boncore Brady Feeney Finegold Gobi Hinds Jehlen Lesser Keenan Moore Rush Spilka Creem Brownsberger Chandler Lovely Barrett DiDomenico Rush Cyr Senate Standing Committees Bills in Third Reading DiDomenico - CHAIR Lovely - VICE Brownsberger Rodrigues Lesser - CHAIR Creem - VICE Boncore Friedman Lewis Intergovernmental Affairs Rush - CHAIR Hinds - VICE Montigny Crighton Moore Personnel and Administration Boncore - CHAIR Crighton - VICE DiDomenico Feeney Friedman Ethics Global Warming and Climate Change Creem - CHAIR Barrett - VICE Brady Lovely Pacheco Post Audit and Oversight Moore - CHAIR Eldridge - VICE Chandler Finegold Jehlen Keenan Redistricting Brownsberger - CHAIR Gobi - VICE Chang-Díaz Cyr Gomez Hinds Steering and Policy Montigny - CHAIR Rodrigues - VICE DiDomenico Lovely Reimagining Massachusetts: PostPandemic Resliency Hinds - CHAIR Lewis - VICE Chang-Díaz Jehlen Keenan Lovely Lovely- CHAIR Boncore - VICE Hinds Brownsberger Friedman has adopted for use during the pandemic. They argued it is not necessary to put the requirement in the regular rules at the present time. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No REDISTRICTING (S 10) Senate 4-35, rejected an amendment requiring that the Redistricting Committee consist of six members—three from the majority party (currently the Democrats) and three from the minority party (currently the Republicans). Current rules provide for a seven-member commission with fi ve Democrats and two Republicans. Redistricting, performed every 10 years based on the federal census, is the process of drawing new congressional and state legislative district boundaries. It will be done this year based on the 2020 census. “I fi led [this] amendment to ensure that there is equal representation on the redistricting,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “This will guarantee that the redistricting process is a fair, bipartisan eff ort.» Amendment opponents noted that the new rules already double the current number of minority party members on the committee from one to two. They said going further than that is not necessary and noted that all Senate committees have more majority members than minority members. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No Rules

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, FEBRUARY 19, 2021 Page 15 72 HOURS NOTICE (S 10) Senate 5-34, rejected an amendment that would require senators to receive 72 hours notice before a bill is considered unless the threeday notice requirement is suspended by a unanimous vote, or a twothirds vote in the event of an emergency. Current law only requires 24 hours notice and can be suspended for both an emergency and nonemergency by a two-thirds vote. “We must be given sufficient time to review matters presented for consideration, to reach out and feel the pulse of our communities, to ascertain how proposed legislation may aff ect those we represent, to hear the concerns and reconcile them with the support,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen). “This amendment would increase transparency of the actions of the Senate and further better the performance of our jobs.” Amendment opponents said the one-day notice has worked well and the Senate leadership often Advanced Information Technology, the Internet and Cybersecurity Finegold - CHAIR Moran - VICE Lewis Lesser Montigny Children, Families and Persons with Disabilities Gomez - CHAIR Velis - VICE Crighton Eldridge Rausch Education Lewis - CHAIR DiDomenico - VICE Cronin Gomez Jehlen Export Development DiZoglio - CHAIR Montigny - VICE Collins DiDomenico Pacheco Housing Keenan - CHAIR Jehlen - VICE Barrett Chandler Lovely Municipalities and Regional Government Cronin - CHAIR Dizoglio - VICE Kennedy Moran Velis Racial Equity, Civil Rights, and Inclusion Chang-Díaz - CHAIR Cyr - VICE Comerford Gomez Hinds Tourism, Arts and Cultural Development Kennedy - CHAIR Cronin - VICE Moran Timilty Velis Collins Rausch Timilty Chang-Díaz Creem Velis Public Health Comerford - CHAIR Moran - VICE Chandler Rausch Cyr Revenue Hinds - CHAIR Crighton - VICE Boncore Kennedy Moran Judiciary Eldridge - CHAIR Lesser - VICE DiZoglio Gobi Gomez Financial Services Crighton - CHAIR Moore - VICE Cyr Feeney Keenan Lesser Labor and Workforce Development Jehlen - CHAIR Timilty - VICE DiDomenico Feeney Lewis Public Safety and Homeland Security Timilty - CHAIR Chang-Díaz - VICE Eldridge Moore Rausch Velis State Administration and Regulatory Oversight Pacheco - CHAIR Rausch - VICE Cronin Timilty Velis Mental Health, Substance Use and Recovery Cyr - CHAIR Velis - VICE Collins Comerford Crighton Keenan Public Service Brady - CHAIR Finegold - VICE Collins DiZoglio Eldridge Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Barrett - CHAIR Pacheco - VICE Hinds Cyr Finegold Transportation Boncore - CHAIR Keenan - VICE Chandler Lesser Moran Rush Veterans and Federal Affairs Velis - CHAIR Rush - VICE Brady Collins Gobi VACCINE | FROM Page 1 updated information. • Residents 65+ can start booking an appointment today.

Joseph Boncore No GIVE TWO MORE DAYS TO READ BUDGET (S 10) Senate 4-35, rejected an amendment that would increase from fi ve to seven the number of days senators and the public would be given to read the state budget before the Senate votes on it. The Senate version of the state’s fi scal 2021 state budget was 331 pages long and had a price tag of $46 billion. Amendment supporters said this would simply give members and the public an additional two days to read, digest, understand and draft amendments to the most important bill the Legislature considers annually. Amendment opponents said the five-day period is sufficient and has worked well. They noted that the additional two days would tie Bonding Feeney - CHAIR Collins - VICE DiZoglio Gomez Moran Consumer Protection and Professional Licensure Moran - CHAIR Feeney - VICE Brady Crighton Kennedy Election Laws Finegold - CHAIR Gomez - VICE the hands of the Ways and Means Committee and prevent quick action when it is needed as it was with the most recent budget that was delayed for months because of the COVID pandemic. (A “Yes” vote is for the seven days. A “No” vote is against the seven days.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No 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 fi led. They note that the infrequenJoint Standing Committees Cannabis Policy Chang-Díaz - CHAIR Collins - VICE Covid-19 and Emergency Preparedness and Management Comerford - CHAIR Friedman - VICE Cronin Cyr Lesser Economic Development and Emerging Technologies Lesser - CHAIR Brady - VICE Chang-Díaz Cronin Feeney Kennedy Environment, Natural Resources and Agriculture Rausch - CHAIR Eldridge - VICE Comerford Moore Rush Higher Education Gobi - CHAIR Comerford - VICE Kennedy Pacheco Rush cy 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.

The map indicates that most of these individuals were buried along the north wall, with the exceptions of Job and Betty Worrow and Fanny Fairweather, who were buried in the southeast corner of the burial ground. Job Worrow served in the Revolutionary War, and Fairweather was a slave of the Cary family of the Bellingham-Cary House in Chelsea. Most historical documents only mention these individuals when they were part of transactions; for example, when they were handed down from one generation to the next. At Rumney Marsh Burial Ground they are not lost to history, and we can do as the plaques implore us to do: “Never forget that they were human beings who contributed to our community’s history.” Slavery not only existed in Revere (Rumney Marsh)/Chelsea, but throughout New England. From the early seventeenth century to our winning independence from Britain, slavery was evident in all of the New England states. Most worked as house servants or in the distilling of rum, especially in the port cities of Newport and Boston. Because our community was basically rural, the men and women who lived and died in Chelsea worked on small farms for several of the wealthy landowners or in their homes. Numerically, there were not many who were in bondage; however, even one human being forced to work involuntarily is a stain upon our community and New England in general.
