City Council Vice President and former Revere High School teacher Joanne McKenna called the vote the most difficult decision she has made during her eight years on the City Council. “There are too many unanswered questions,” said McKenna. “I don’t want to burden my constituents with the cost of this project. I believe Revere cannot afford putting the high school at the Wonderland site.” City CFO Richard Viscay continually assured councillors that the building project would not require a Prop 2 1/2 override, but councillors remained skeptical about the city’s strategies to come up with enough money to cover the cost of the new school. And councilors were not supportive of several of the strategies proposed by Viscay and the Mayor’s Office, including adopting the Community Preservation Act, tweaking disbursements from the community investment act, a possible trash fee and increases in fees for permits and fines. City councillors were also concerned about unknowns, such BUDGET | SEE Page 13 Mayor Brian Arrigo delivers his State of the City Address during the Revere Chamber of Commerce Breakfast in 2019 at the Wharf Restaurant.

Page 2 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 CITY OF REVERE Brian M. Arrigo Mayor Dear Residents, After months of consideration with loved ones, I have decided to make 2023 my last year as Mayor of this great City of Revere. This is a bittersweet decision, as I am sad to be leaving a position that has been so rewarding, but now it is time to support the next generation with the energy and ideas to lead our great city. Supported by my incredible family, friends, and staff, the last eight years I've served as your mayor has been the honor of my life. Revere is my hometown, where the fabric of our community raised me as they did many of you. As I grew up I watched my parents, both in their own way, serve the residents of Revere with passion and integrity - knowing they were doing it to build a better city for me and my sister. I deeply love our growing, close-knit North Shore coastal community. Revere is and always will be home to me. In 2012 when I became a Revere City Councillor, there was so much on the horizon for our city. I began surrounding myself with incredibly bright minds, folks who loved this city as much as I did and knew what steps were necessary to move our city forward. Together, that work allowed us to take those ideas to the Mayor’s Office in 2016 - eager to implement our plans but learning quickly there are no instructions for how to run a city. My staff and I walked into our then-empty office at 281 Broadway with a blank slate and a vision. I have been proud to lead the fastest growing city in the Commonwealth, despite the challenges we have overcome. In unifying a divided city, focusing on bridging the gap between historically overlooked neighborhoods and City Hall, bringing government closer to people with 311 and promoting more transparency into how our city operates and serves its people - slowly we built our team, we built trust, and our city thrived. In this time as your Mayor, nothing has been more important to me than building on the trust you have put in me to lead our city. Trust is the key ingredient necessary to accomplish big things - in our personal lives, in business or in government. The integrity of the office is paramount and I am proud to know we have built a system of transparency, a culture of consistent communication and the trust among each other to lead this city forward. I look around my office today, filled with shovels from groundbreakings, letters from Revere students, photos from ribbon cuttings and flag raisings and I am proud of the journey we’ve been on together. As I end my time as Mayor of the greatest city in our Commonwealth, I intend to spend more time with my family, and continue to pursue public service outside of elected office in some capacity. Although I don't specifically know what my next chapter will be, I will forever be grateful to those who put their trust in me. It has been my greatest honor serving as your mayor and I only hope you will continue to challenge the status quo as we build on the greatest strength of our city - the diversity and pride of our people. Regards,Regards, Mayor Brian M. Arrigo

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 3 Mass. Dept. of Revenue certifies $5.9M in free cash; Council holds off transfer to HS Stabilization fund By Barbara Taormina Councillors voted unaniE very year around this time, cities and towns get a financial boost when certified free cash makes it onto the agendas of city councils, boards of selectmen and aldermen. This year, the state Dept. of Revenue’s Division of Local Services certified $5,924,275 in free cash for a 2022 budget surplus for Revere. This week, city councillors voted to squirrel much of that money away in the city’s stabilization accounts and to channel needed funding to city operations. mously to transfer $888,641 from free cash to the city’s general stabilization fund, a rainy day account for deficits and emergencies. They also voted unanimously to move $592,428 from free cash to the Affordable Housing Trust Fund. The Capital Improvement Stabilization Fund received a $1,184,855 cut of free cash. With unanimous votes, councillors moved $250,000 from free cash to the Post-Employment Benefits Trust Fund and $355,470 from Water and Sewer free cash to the Revere City Councillors Respond to Mayor Arrigo’s Response to City Council Vote T he following is a statement from Revere City Councillors Anthony T. Zambuto, Gerry Visconti, Richard J. Serino, Dan Rizzo, Joanne McKenna, and Anthony Cogliandro: In response to the Mayor’s statement on the outcome of the vote of our City Council to not advance the schematic design of the proposed new Revere High School, published in the Revere Journal on March 1, we feel compelled to offer a rebuttal to the residents and taxpayers of the City. When a majority of your City Council – including a former teacher and a former mayor – is voting “no” on advancing a new high school as presented by the Mayor’s Administration, that should raise a serious red flag to the average resident as to the earnest concerns the City Council had about the proposal, and put into question if the proposal presented to our honorable body was truly a prudent one in the best interest of all residents, present and future – particularly from a financial standpoint. Part of the responsibility we have as your City Council is to serve as diligent guardians of the City’s finances, and for us, the question of advancing the schematic design of the new Revere High School was not solely a question of education and legacy – it was a question of the true viability of affordability to the City, especially when the overall projected cost for the construction of the school and the land it would sit on was nearly half a BILLION dollars - this was VOTING | SEE Page 12 Lawrence A.

Councillors put off transferring money to the High School Stabilization Fund. “It’s something we’ll utilize to fund some sort of high school,” said City Council President Patrick Keefe. But city CFO Richard Viscay advised the council to hold off. “It seems like we’re back to the drawing board,” said Viscay about the high school project.

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 ~ LETTER TO THE EDITOR ~ Oak Island Neighborhood Association is Established A fter coming together as a neighborhood and obtaining over 300 signatures on a petition to relocate the potential homeless shelter/recovery facility, being built on Arcadia St., we have decided to establish the first ever Oak Island Neighborhood Association. Sometime in the near future, we plan on filing the proper documents to become an official neighborhood organization. Our goal is to make our neighborhood a better, safer, more informed, cleaner place to live. We also hope to engage in thoughtful conversations with our government regarding any decisions being made pertaining to Oak Island’s future. This is all in hopes to have a seat at the table, assuming our elected officials are open to engaging with the association. We don’t expect much but feeling safe in our homes is one thing we all expect to have at Ward 5 Oak Island residents the end of the day. We now have a stronger neighborhood with residents that will continue to look out for one another. One of our first missions in early discussions is donating our time as well as clothes, socks, and other essentials needed to help the homeless population.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 5 BBB Scam Alert: Scammers May Be Targeting Your Smart TV S cammers can target victims through any device connected to the internet, and your TV is no exception. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) has seen an influx of reports about scammers catching people off guard with pop-ups on their smart TVs (https://www.bbb.org/scamtracker). Their objective is to steal your personal information and money. How the scam works: You open a familiar streaming service on your smart TV; however, you can’t log in. Instead, a popup appears, telling you there is a problem with your device or your streaming subscription. You need to call a phone number or visit a website to fix it. Don’t fall for it! If you call the number, scammers pretend to be customer service representatives. They will insist you pay an activation fee or allow them remote access to your smart TV. These con artists will get your credit or debit card number if you pay the fee. If you give them access to your device or click on a link they provide, the scammers might install malware on your TV and use it to gain access to sensitive personal information. Sometimes scammers ask you to “fix” the issue by paying them in gift cards. One consumer reported that after calling a number that appeared in a pop-up on their smart TV, a scammer instructed them to purchase three $100 Xbox gift cards to add “anti-hacking protection” to their account. After buying the gift cards and contacting the number again, it became clear they were dealing with scammers. How to avoid smart TV scams • Double-check any fees you have to pay. If scammers ask you to pay an activation fee, antivirus protection fee or any other kind of fee, do some research beforehand. For example, scammers claim you need to pay an activation fee to start using your Roku; however, a quick online search reveals that Roku never charges activation or registration fees. • Don’t fall for fake websites. Scammers love to create imitation websites using URLs that are just a letter or two off. Fake websites are a threat, even on smart TVs, so double-check the URL. Another way to protect yourself is to avoid clicking on links in pop-ups and, instead, type web URLs directly into your browser. • Check before you call. If a “customer service” phone number appears in a pop-up, double-check it before you call. Contact a streaming service or TV manufacturer’s website to find their customer support number. • Never let anyone control your device remotely. Scammers usually ask for remote computer access, but they could also ask for access to your smart TV. Don’t ever give control of your device to a stranger.

According to records filed on January 26, 2023, in Middlesex Superior Court, Utica National Insurance Company of Texas has filed a motion requesting the Court to enter an order that Utica “owes no duty to defend or indemnify Dorchester Publications LLC” – doing business as the Everett Leader LLC, Joshua Resnek, Matthew Philbin and Andrew Philbin, Sr. in connection with the claims filed against them by the mayor, city solicitor, assistant city solicitor and chief financial officer. The Utica National Insurance Company complaint cited a lawsuit filed by the city’s Chief Financial Officer, Eric Demas; Asst. City Solicitor Keith Slattery, Esq.; and City Solicitor Colleen Mejia, Esq., which was filed in September of 2022. Utica, according to the complaint, issued a $1 million business owner’s policy effective from January 12, 2021, through Jan. 2022, which provides coverage for Philbin’s liability, and damages arising out of “personal and advertising injury.” The policy, according to the complaint, excludes coverage for such injury caused by or at the direction for the insured with knowledge that the act would violate the rights of another and would inflict personal injury; or in this case, “oral or written publication, in any manner, or material that slanders or libels a person or organization.” Utica contends that “the coverage is not afforded under the Policy because of the Everett Leader Defendants’ conduct allegedly committed intentionally, purposefully, fraudulently, maliciously and/or knowingly so as to harm another person under the terms of the Policy.” In other words – the insurance company wants out given the damning testimony by their policy holders. Utica’s motion also cites the mayor’s amended complaint, one count of Conspiracy to Defame by the Philbins and Resnek, one count for Defamation against the three and one count of Defamation against City Clerk Sergio Cornelio. With respect to the Demas, Mejia and Slattery lawsuit, the three cite claims of Defamation; Mejia claims Intentional Interference with an Advantageous or Business Relationship against the Philbins and Resnek. As the ongoing depositions continue, most recently with Matthew Philbin on January 18, Philbin admitted under oath to having no proof – whether notes, documentation, texts or emails – that the mayor had engaged in any criminal activity, but he, along with Resnek, published for years, from 2017 to 2021, to not only ruin DeMaria’s reelection chances but to destroy his personal and professional reputation. Utica’s complaint continues with their intention to retract legal representation by citing that Philbin and Resnek “allegedly acted knowingly, intentionally, with a particular purpose to harm Mayor DeMaria, while committing fraud, and/or without basic fact.” With respect to the Mejia and others’ complaint, the Plaintiffs contend that once the mayor was reelected the Everett Leader Herald defendants increased their inflammatory attacks on Mejia, Slattery and Demas “in both frequency, falsity, and outrageousness with the intent to harm the Plaintiffs’ respective reputations and, moreover, disable the administration.” The complaint points to Philbin and Resnek’s false and defamatory statements made with “actual malice,” knowing they were published in print and posted on the newspaper’s website “either knowing the statements were false or in reckless disregard as to whether they were true or false.” The complaint also calls out Resnek’s demonstration of “intentional, cavalier, and reckless disregard for the truth in publishing false and defamatory statements,” which Resnek described as “BS” in his sworn testimony in 2022. Philbin testified that in the case of the real estate deal between Cornelio and the mayor he never, as the owner of the newspaper, followed up on any of the allegations written by Resnek, despite reading the drafts prior to publication stating the mayor was extorting money from Cornelio or was in conflict of interest. Resnek would admit in sworn testimony that he never had any notes or sought any legal documentation from the city clerk on the land deal, including his admission to fabricating and doctoring notes. It’s obvious to this writer that if the Court allows Utica National Insurance Co. to pull the plug on the $1 million coverage, the Philbins will have to cover the lawsuit out of their own pockets. It is unclear when the case will actually reach court. Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 7 Councillor Rizzo seeks change to antiquated Dover Amendment By Barbara Taormina T he recent Arcadia Street conflict which saw a neighborhood unite to oppose a plan to locate an educational program with transitional housing for Revere’s homeless population on the middle of their densely packed dead-end street left Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo with a bad taste in his mouth. Rizzo has proposed asking Mayor Brian Arrigo to request that Revere’s state delegation file legislation that would bring the Dover Amendment into question. The Dover Amendment is a state law adopted in 1950 that exempts proposals for religious, educational and agricultural land uses from local zoning ordinances and bylaws. Rizzo sees the Dover Amendment as an antiquated law that fails to take into account how densely populated urban communities have become. And how much times have changed. He feels the law puts communities that impose sensible zoning regulations on such projects at risk for protracted and costly litigation and, even worse, allegations of unlawful discrimination that can mean civil penalties amounting to millions of dollars. “We want to help people who need it, but we have to be strategic about where we place these facilities,” said Rizzo. He conceded he doesn’t have any specific suggestions for the legislature on how to revamp the law. “But I know it needs to be tweaked,” he said. “Developers know if they can implement the Dover Amendment in virtually any neighborhood they want to build in, they can use the law as leverage to get what they want to go forward with a plan that might otherwise be rejected by a city council or board of aldermen. Rizzo seemed confident that Representatives Jessica Giannino and Jeffrey Turco and Senator Lydia Edwards would be able to find ways to protect neighborhoods from developers who want to hold the Dover Amendment over their heads. Rizzo said he did not think that was the situation on Arcadia Street but the more he looked at the law, the more he began seeing the bigger ramifications. “I think there’s a problem with the way it sits now in state law,” he said. Fellow councillors congratulated Rizzo for a great proposal. City Council President Patrick Keefe said the law needs to be adjusted to fit the times, and anyone who buys a single-family house, a multifamily house or a business has an absolute say in what happens next door.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 MAYOR | FROM Page 1 Pines Fire Station and the new Robert J. Haas Health and Wellness Center. While we have had a good number of successes - we have been far from perfect. Our most recent - and I would argue our biggest failure came earlier this week with our inability to move a new Revere High School forward. While the wounds are still relatively fresh, I am sad that many high school parents and grandparents - including some in leadership positions in our city - will continue to choose to send their children and grandchildren out of district because our high school doesn’t meet their standards. Yet when it comes to doing the work to make a new high school a reality for future generations - they are too timMackey & Brown 1 orwood St., Everett, MA 021 9 Attorneys at Law * PERSONAL INJURY * REAL ESTATE * FAMILY LAW * GENERAL PRACTICE * PERSONAL BANKRUPTCY * CIVIL LITIGATION P one 617 387- 900 a 617 381-1755 WWW.MACKEYBROWNLAW.COM John Mackey, Esq. * Katherine M. Brown, Esq. Patricia Ridge, Esq. id and distracted by hypothetical uncertainties and political implications. I am sad that we failed the 7,168 children under the age of ten currently living in our city who do not have a voice and will not have the opportunity to grow up looking forward to attending a new state of the art high school. By subjecting another generation of our youth to a 50-yearold building that hasn’t served our needs for a long time, our elected leaders, including many who are quick to proclaim their own families’ working-class, immigrant roots - pulled the ladder out from underneath our young families and violated one of our key covenants: our duty to continuously lay the groundwork for a healthier, safer, and more prosperous community. This most recent failure reminds me of the politics of the past. As I reflect on our last eight years, I can’t help but think about my first few days in the Mayor’s Office. In 2016, we inherited a city that was depleting its Rainy Day Fund while having millions of dollars sitting around that nobody knew existed. Since then, we have consistently improved our financial policies and procedures. As a result, in 2018 our bond rating was upgraded and today our Rainy Day Fund is the largest in our city’s history, setting us up for financial success for decades to come. In 2016, we inherited a city without a Human Resources Department – employee morale was at an all-time low and the culture of City Hall was centered around intimidation and bully tactics. Employees were judged by the political sticker on their car, not the level of their performance. Since then, we have invested in our people at City Hall, providing training and professional development opportunities to our employees and regularly celebrating our talented and diverse workforce. In 2016, we inherited two empty racetracks, nine vacant parcels along Revere Beach and no master plan to guide us into the future. Since then, we have proven ourselves as trustworthy partners – attracting a record amount of public and private investment to update our infrastructure and create great places to live, eat and work. Miles of new streets with updated water and sewer pipes, thousands of new places for people to live and 15 new restaurants in our city. In 2016, we inherited a Department of Public Works that was neglected. From their rusted and rotted equipment to the blue tarps that were used to cover the computers when it rained out because of the holes in the ceiling of their facility. Since then, we invested in new equipment, we invested in additional staff and I’m proud to say that our new DPW facility will be ready to occupy this fall. I can go on and on and on giving examples of what we inherited in 2016 and contrast that with where we stand today…but the bottom line is this: Because of all of the work that we have done together - all of the trust we have built in each other - all of confidence we have about our shared future - and because we truly believe that we - as a community - deserve the best, I can proudly stand here tonight and say the State of Our City will remain strong - long after I leave office. We have built the momentum. We will hand off a city that, across every measure, is in better shape than when my Administration took office. It was my dad’s voice as my North Star in the earliest days: “This is the opportunity of a lifetime, kid. Don’t mess this up – and if nothing else, you have to hand it off better than you got it.” Eight years later, the foundation has been cemented. My time leading our city is coming to an end, and now it will be up to all of you to ensure that we continue on a path forward with leadership that builds trust, collaborates, looks forward – and does the work. And as we look to the future, we cannot forget our past. As a community we need to put our faith and trust in those who will continue to build up from this foundation and steer clear of those who would like nothing more than to tear it down. Over the last eight years, we tried like heck to build trust. In today’s world it is harder than ever. Social media has given a voice and a platform to many people lacking credibility. We have become more interested in likes, shares and comments and less interested in context, nuance – and the all-important details. And over the last eight years, I’ve been constantly reminded that it is not the critic who counts – especially the critics behind the keyboard. So that’s why it will be so important for all of you to demand that your leaders – especially those elected – accept all of the responsibility that comes along with this work. The leaders of this city – both current and future – will have to continue building trust, collaborating and doing the work while ignoring those who lack credibility. The people of this city deserve nothing less. As we prepare for the next chapter in our city’s history, I stand here confident that Revere will continue to thrive and grow under the leadership of my successor. You should all be so proud of what we have accomplished together, and I know that this community has the resilience, determination, and vision to overcome the challenges that lie ahead. Serving as your mayor has been the greatest honor of my life, and I will always cherish the memories I have made here in Revere with all of you. I am forever grateful for the opportunity to have made a difference in the lives of our residents, and I am confident that this community will continue to grow and flourish for many years to come. Thank you for everything, and God bless Revere.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 9 Revere boys advance in tourney with comeback win Receiving the 38th seed with a 10-10 record, the Patriots faced the No. 27 Plymouth South Panthers in a preliminary round game Monday on the road. It didn't look good for Revere late in the fourth quarter, as it trailed 50-44. Amazingly, Revere went on to outscore the Panthers 11-0 to close out the affair and come away with a 55-50 comeback victory. Senior captains Boudreau (16 points) and Vincent Nichols (13) led the way offensively for Revere. As has been commonplace in recent outings, Boudreau also snatched 14 rebounds to earn another double-double. Nichols contributed two blocked shots to the cause and Ethan Day reached double figures in Revere Co-Captain Domenic Boudreau goes up for a basket during last week’s action against Hamilton Wenham. (Advocate file photos) By Greg Phipps A bout three weeks ago, the Revere High School boys' basketball team appeared to be ready to simply play out the regular-season string and regroup Pats Co-Captain Vincent Nichols takes a shot over Hamilton-Wenham defenders last week. for next season. The Patriots sat at 5-9 overall with six games left on the schedule. But Revere suddenly got key players back from injury, including senior top scorer Domenic Boudreau, and was not ready to pack it in. The Patriots pulled off victories in five of their last six contests (the lone loss being a road defeat at Div. 1 Peabody) to reach the 10-win mark and gain a spot in the Div. 2 state playoff tournament. Remembering Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 After 61 years, Wreaths Across America remembers lost heroes who paid the ultimate sacrifice for our freedom. COLUMBIA FALLS, Maine — March 1, 2023 — Sixty-one years ago on March 16, 1962, Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 (FTLF 739) and its crew, departed on a secret mission sanctioned by President Kennedy, to fly to Vietnam. This secret Vietnam reconnaissance mission went missing with no trace of the plane or its passengers ever found. Onboard were 93 United States Army soldiers and 11 civilian crewmembers. On Thursday, March 16, 2023, at 12pm ET, national nonprofit Wreaths Across America (WAA) will be holding a special live ceremony to remember all those lost that day and honor their families. To watch this event live on Facebook (or go to https://www.facebook.com/ events/1683985688739333). Very little is known about what happened to FTLF 739, its crew and passengers, and due to the circumstance surrounding this mission, the names of those lost have not yet been added to the Vietnam Veterans Memorial in Washington D.C. However, today many families and loved ones of these heroes still fight to have their loved ones recognized for their contributions to our freedom and shared history. Presently, the only monument that bears the names of these American heroes was erected by a private citizen, Wreaths Across America founder Morrill Worcester, on his balsam tip land in Columbia Falls, Maine. “When I first heard the story about this mission, I was shocked to learn that nothing has been done for these families,” said Morrill Worcester. “I said that day, that we would do something to make sure these people are honored and remembered, and to hopefully give some closure to these families.” The inscription on the FTLF 739 monument in Maine reads: “Missing in action; Presumed dead. Flying Tiger Line Flight 739 went missing on March 16, 1962, with 93 U.S. Army soldiers on board. These men and their flight crew perished in what would become one of the biggest aviation mysteries out of the Vietnam War era.

Head coach David Leary praised the great playoff atmosphere and back and forth nature of the contest. As a result, the 11-10 Patriots moved on to central Massachusetts to battle the sixth-seeded Nashoba Regional Chieftains in the Round of 32 on Thursday. Nashoba would be a challenge to topple, as the Chieftains finished with an impressive 18-2 regular-season record. The winner of Thursday's clash will face either 11th-seeded North Quincy or 22nd seeded Whitman-Hanson Regional in a final-16 contest. If the Patriots advance further, because of their low seeding, they would be on the road the rest of the way.

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Get Ready for Spring & Summer “Backyarding:” Keep Safety in Mind “B ackyarding”—the art of taking indoor activities to the outdoors—is a trend that has caught on. As winter begins to wind down, thoughts of playing in and working in our yards often kick into high gear. Perhaps you are already dreaming of family gatherings, grilling and eating in your backyard. Or maybe you wish to add a yoga zone, design an outdoor movie theater, or build an agility course for your pet this year. Or perhaps this is the year you wish to add a pollinator garden or plant a vegetable or flower garden. Or are you hoping to get that outdoor office setup with extended WiFi? Knowing the purpose of your yard and how it will meet the needs of your family and pets is a great start to getting “backyard ready” for these warmer weather activities. Also, knowing your climate zone and the mix of trees, shrubs, grass and flowering plants that will grow sustainably is key to designing a dream yard. After all, our yards are not only an oasis for family but also for wildlife and important pollinators such as birds, bees and butterflies. Now is the time to start planning. Visit your nursery, plant centers, outdoor power equipment service dealers, and/or contact a landscaper, according to the Outdoor Power Equipment Institute (OPEI) https:// www.opei.org/ “Think about how your yard can work best for you, your family, pets and community, but do it now,” says Kris Kiser, CEO and President of OPEI. “And while you’re getting it in top shape for warm weather, remember to keep safety top of mind especially with your equipment and tools.” Here are some tips from OPEI to get your backyard ready, safely and efficiently: • Take stock of your outdoor power equipment to help you maintain your yard and make big jobs easier. A lawn mower will trim the grass, but perhaps you might need a cultivator for a garden, a chain saw to take down dead tree limbs, or a leaf blower to clear debris. Having the right equipment on hand can help you save time and effort if you don’t want to hire a professional. • Follow equipment manufacturer’s guidance for safety and usage of all outdoor power equipment. Look over the manual for your equipment for a refresher on how to safely use it, and read the safety information on equipment manufacturer’s web sites. Review how to shut on and off equipment and make sure safety features are working and have not been disabled. Never disengage or disable manufacturer-installed safety equipment. • Remember to keep children and pets away from outdoor power equipment. No children on mowers. • Do not mow in reverse, and avoid starting, stopping or turning a mower on a slope. Follow manufacturer guidance to the letter on mowing on slopes. • Service equipment as needed and according to manufacturer’s directions. Well-maintained equipment will last longer and run more efficiently. • Buy fresh fuel for gasolineOutdoor Power Equipment Institute: Powering good powered equipment and be sure you have matched the correct battery with the right charger. Only use batteries that are authorized for your equipment and do not use counterfeits. • Before working in the yard, clear the area of dead limbs, sticks and debris. Inspect trees for damage and clear the work area. By keeping this information in mind, you can get your yard in its best shape safely. BBB Tip: Shopping for a mattress? Do your research Buying a new mattress is a huge investment here are so many options – various materials, firmness levels, price ranges, sizes and even smart technology options – that making a purchase can seem overwhelming. It’s easy to see why mattress shoppers need to do their research. What can you do to purchase a new mattress that meets your needs? The following tips from the Better Business Bureau (BBB) should help: • Shop around to compare your options. Mattress prices and quality can vary greatly, so take the time to visit more than one mattress retailer before deciding. • Try before you buy. Test the mattress for at least 15 minutes by lying where you normally sleep. It might seem awkward, but a Consumer Reports survey found that 77 percent of respondents who tested their mattress more than 15 minutes were especially happy with their purchase. • Take a close look at the mattress tags. Ensure your mattress has the proper tags before you take it to your home. This step is especially important if you have a mattress delivered to your home. Even if the mattress is wrapped, inspect the tags before the delivery person leaves. • Avoid retailers that sell mattresses with no tags. You can’t be sure about the kind or quality of mattress you purchase if the retailer’s products have no tags. Don’t be fooled by repeated assurances from a salesperson if they have no proof to back up their claims. If there’s no tag, there’s no deal. • Find out about return and refund policies. Get all the details about the company’s return and refund policies and ask for a copy of this information in writing. • Ask the retailer to write “new” on your receipt. If you purchase a new mattress, have the retailer write this information on your receipt or include it on your digital copy. This will give you an additional recourse if you later find a problem with the mattress. • Research retailers on BBB.org. Whenever you make a large purchase, such as a mattress, look up the store or company you plan to do business with on the BBB website. Protect yourself from shady dealers by reviewing the company’s business rating and BBB reviews and complaints. What to know about used mattresses In most parts of the United States, used mattresses can be resold if they meet processing and labeling requirements. In Canada, secondhand mattresses also need to meet certain guidelines. Of course, mattress retailers might not be eager to point out that a mattress is used or has used materials, so keep these tips in mind: • Ask about used bedding. Ask the retailer directly if they sell used mattresses or mattresses that contain used materials. If you are considering purchasing used bedding, ask about how the material is sanitized or disinfected. Keep in mind that used bedding could be tainted with bodily fluids, pet allerT gens, bacteria, mold or other harmful substances. • Check the tag: New mattresses should have a white tag indicating the mattress contains “all new materials.” In some areas used mattresses have yellow or red tags that indicate the mattress is used or contains used material; however, requirements vary, so don’t assume that the absence of a red or yellow tag automatically means the mattress is new.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 11 MassFiscal comments on release of Gov. Healey’s tax package T he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MassFiscal) applauded Governor Maura Healey for taking an incremental step towards positive tax reforms to help Massachusetts remain economically competitive and mitigate some of the negative effects of the recently passed Question 1 income tax hike. While a candidate for Governor, Healey repeatedly promised to cut taxes as her way to help voters deal with inflation and the high cost of living and doing business in Massachusetts. The November election saw the narrow passage of Question 1 implemented into law, which increased the state income tax rate by 80 percent on some small businesses, home sales, retirees and high-income earners. The Commonwealth’s economic competitiveness rankings have already begun to decline due to Question 1’s passage, and tax collections were 5 percent lower last month than in January of last year. According to recent reports, Massachusetts has lost over 100,000 residents since the beginning of the COVID-19 pandemic. Those reports also show that the taxpayer-friendly states of New Hampshire and Florida were the top destinations for Massachusetts residents to escape to. “Governor Healey has taken a positive first step with this tax package. The reform of our estate tax in particular is much needed to remedy our state from its outlier status, and it’s a welcomed surprise that Governor Healey’s proposal on this tax is even more competitive than her predecessor’s. While many states are eliminating or moving to eliminate their estate taxes, including President Biden’s home state of Delaware, Massachusetts currently has one of the most punitive estate taxes in the country. This certainly contributes to the outflow of taxpayers from our state to more tax friendly states like New Hampshire and Florida,” noted MassFiscal Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Diego Craney. “Reforming the estate tax, as well as her proposed reform of the short-term capital gains tax, in which we are also an outlier, are both helpful moves. Ultimately, Massachusetts will still need bolder action if we’re to mitigate some of the damage done by the passage of Question 1. There are 32 other states in this country without any form of estate or inheritance tax and we should be following their lead in order to keep taxpayers in Massachusetts. We also continue to implore the Governor and Legislature to consider a broad-based approach to reducing taxes and specifically call for an examination of a reduction in the state income tax rate as the single best way to keep Massachusetts competitive,” said Craney.

The campaign will run on social media pages and urge constituents to contact their lawmakers and Governor Maura Healey. While a candidate for Governor, Healey repeatedly promised to cut taxes as her way to help voters deal with inflation and the high cost of living and doing business in Massachusetts. The November Election also saw the narrow passage of Question 1, which increased the state income tax rate by 80 percent on some small businesses, home sales, retirees and high-income earners. Governor Healey announced this week that her tax cut plan includes a reduction in the state’s short-term capital gains tax rate and easing the harm of the estate tax. While these measures would be beneficial, they are not enough to undo the damage of Question 1 or help us to compete with states like New Hampshire and Florida. Reportedly, the Commonwealth’ economic competitiveness has declined due to Question 1’s passage. Massachusetts tax collections were 5 percent lower in January 2023 than in January 2022, and Massachusetts has lost over 100,000 residents and small businesses since the beginning of the pandemic. Those reports show that the taxpayer-friendly states of Florida and New Hampshire were the top destinations to which Massachusetts residents were escaping. Beacon Hill politicians must compare Massachusetts tax policies to those of states like Florida and New Hampshire if Massachusetts ever wants to be economically competitive. The Tax Foundation, a nonpartisan, nonprofit tax organization in Washington, D.C., warned Massachusetts that after the passage of Question 1, our economy and competitiveness will suffer unless significant tax reductions and eliminations are made. The Tax Foundation warned, “Massachusetts’ tax competitiveness is expected to fall from 34th in 2023, there is little reato 46th son to believe that trend will slow down – especially as New Hampshire continues to phase out its tax on interest and dividends by 2027.” The Tax Foundation urged Beacon Hill to cut broad-based taxes and eliminate other taxS Advocate staff report augus Police are investigating last month’s recovery of three stolen Bobcat tractors on Cedar Glen Golf Course.

They were stolen from Danvers, Middleton and Beverly, according to police. “The first one was stolen with a trailer,” Saugus Police Chief Michael Ricciardelli said. “It looks like the stolen trailer was used to transport the stolen Bobcats.

To read their warning, please click here: https://taxfoundation.org/question-1-massachusetts-millionaires-tax/ “It’s always welcomed news to see Beacon Hill politicians embrace tax reductions as a way to grow the economy. However, now is not the time for modest reforms. Our state lost over 100,000 residents and small businesses since the beginning of the pandemic and we are among the least competitive states in the entire county,” stated MassFiscal Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Diego Craney. “If the goal is to undo the damage associated with the narrow passage of Question 1 or to be competitive with states like New Hampshire and Florida, the top two destinations for where Massachusetts residents fled, these modest measures will not be enough. If Massachusetts wants to compete with New Hampshire and Florida, it’s worth remembering that these states don’t even have a state income tax or an estate tax,” continued Craney. “The Governor made a promise during the campaign and as Governor, she needs to deliver on those promises. The only way to contend with the most economically competitive states in the county is for Beacon Hill politicians to cut the state income tax rate for everyone, reduce the capital gains tax, reduce the corporate tax rate, eliminate the estate and inventory tax, and make it so municipalities have the resources they need to cut local property taxes. MassFiscal will be urging constituents to contact Beacon Hill politicians and ask them to put forward broad tax cuts and eliminations in order to compete with other states like New Hampshire and Florida,” continued Craney. “MassFiscal appreciates any reduction in taxes proposed by Beacon Hill politicians, however, now is not the time for modesty. The reality is the pandemic changed the landscape and Massachusetts cannot afford to lose another 100,000 residents and small businesses. Bold, broad based tax cuts and eliminations must be adopted otherwise the revived moniker ‘Taxachusetts’ will stick to our state for a long time,” concluded Craney.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 VOTING | FROM Page 3 a financial decision we took solemnly and not lightly. As the public saw throughout the Ways and Means SubCommittee process, the potential projected costs that we were asked to consider were all over the place – ranging from $499 Million overall, with a potential cost of $338 Million to the City to $470 Million overall, with a potential cost of $290 Million to the City. Couple this with a $30 Million cost of the Wonderland site, and the possibility that the cost of the land on which the new high school would have sat could potentially double, triple or nearly quadruple that number after litigation (based on comments made by the attorneys representing the owners of Wonderland in the Revere Journal on February 22). Let us be clear - if the Administration was able to clearly articulate to both the City Council and the residents of the City a definitive plan for how the City was going to comfortably finance the $290 Million for the construction of the school, plus whatever price the Wonderland site were to end up costing the City, the outcome of Monday's vote would have been different. Instead, when the City Council initially asked the Administration how we, as a City, were affording this project, we were first given (in January) a grim report that tough decisions would likely have to be made, and we would have to implement some combination of measures - many of which would fall on the back of the average taxpayer - in order to bring the proposal for a new high school into fruition. By mid-February, the Administration provided the Council with a vague roadmap for how the City could finance the project, but this plan only included percentages of future revenues in various accounts and capping spending growth percentages for various areas in the annual budget with no real projected numbers. Finally, on Monday evening, February 27th, at the start of the Ways and Means Sub-Committee meeting on the night the Council was expected to vote, the Councillors were presented with hard numbers that we had been asking for throughout our deliberations. For any member of the public watching this process play out, it would seem skeptical and questionable - as it did to the six of us - that the City went from having to potentially take drastic measures to make this a reality to confidently being able to afford this project within a matter of six weeks. The plans for financing the new high school at the Wonderland site as proposed by the Administration were weak, at best, and did not take into account unforeseen financial events that we, as city leaders, have a duty to plan for (i.e., a recession or some other unforeseen emergency). The plan put forward to finance the high school would also have diverted funding away from other important priorities of the city by capping spending growth for Public Safety and Public Works, among other areas, in the municipal budget and requiring some monies from municipal accounts, like the Community Investment Trust Fund, be allocated to pay for the debt incurred for the new high school. Additionally, the justified concern of the unknown eventual cost of the land itself given the pending litigation, and the fact that revenues generated from the eventual development on the Wonderland site could help to pay for the cost of the high school, made it clear that we needed to think twice about the suitability of this particular location. These are not hypothetical uncertainties - they are fiscal realities. Further, given the options for site selection around the city considered by the School Building Committee (IE the Cooledge Street Housing Development among others), it was most unfortunate that the City Council as a whole was not included in this process until the consensus was reached by the School Building Committee and the School Committee for the Wonderland site. By the time the City Council was able to offer meaningful input, the Administration had made clear in its presentation to the Council that Wonderland was their preferred site. The outcome of this particular vote to not advance this project as proposed is not on the City Council - the Chief Executive and the Administration did not make a strong enough case to convince us - and the taxpayers of the City - that this was a totally fiscally sound proposal. The risks to the financial standing of the City were greater than the positive result of having a new high school on that site. We value education; we, too, want a new high school. However, we could not and cannot ignore the affordability of such a project. Your City Council had no other logical choice but to air on the side of caution for the sake of the taxpayers who have entrusted us in overseeing their Treasury. A decision to move forward with so many valid concerns of Councillors and residents alike and real fiscal uncertainties would have been reckless and irresponsible. Moving forward with the proposal as presented by the Administration would have set up the next Mayor or two and future City Councils, and more importantly, the City itself, for financial disaster that would be felt for decades to come. Voting "yes" would have been the easy thing to do; voting "no" was the prudent judgment call. Finally, to be crystal clear to the residents of the City who fear that this is the end of the conversation, the vote on February 27th did not kill the dream of a new Revere High School; it simply sent a message that the City Council, the Mayor, the Superintendent of Schools, the School Committee, and the School Building Committee have to continue to work collaboratively to refine a proposal for a new Revere High School. Be it this Administration or the immediate one following, the Chief Executive's team will have to present a proposal to the honorable City Council that is not only economically feasible, but realistic, because the burden of the costs for a new high school cannot - and will not, on our watch, - fall on the backs of the average taxpayers of our community. Accordingly, we urge the Mayor to direct the School Building Committee to immediately reconvene to determine a viable path forward that will provide a new Revere High School for our students while ensuring a fiscally sound future for our City.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 Page 13 BUDGET | FROM Page 1 as the ultimate cost of the Wonderland site, which will be decided in court. The former owners of Wonderland are suing the city for what they believe is fair market value for the Wonderland parcel, which they feel is $40 to $100 million more than the $29.5 million the city intends to pay. Ward 3 City Councillor Anthony Cogliandro asked about site soil work that the Conservation Commission is requiring at Wonderland. Senior Project Manager Brian Dakin said the site is still being assessed. “We have to start the process to get some answers,” said Dakin. But it’s the number of unknowns and suppositions that have pushed councillors toward making a careful and cautious decision. Councillors are also concerned about plans to limit city spending to annual three percent increases. Viscay has said annual increases for public safety could be held to four percent. Councillor-at-Large Gerry Visconti, chairman of the Ways and Means Committee, said councillors have been given numbers throughout the process, but the numbers have moved drastically. “I voted for Wonderland based on numbers that weren’t correct,” said Visconti. “I act on the side of caution. This is not my money but I’m acting like it is. Would I take this chance with my own money? No. I feel the risks at Wonderland outweigh the positives.” But the audience in the City Council Chambers was filled with new school advocates who repeatedly warned that if the city abandoned the project, Revere High could lose its accreditation, which would handicap students applying to colleges and universities. There were also warnings that without an accredited high school, property values in Revere would plummet. Some warned that Revere was risking its place in line for MSBA funding for a new school. According to estimates, the MSBA would cover $180,000 for the building, while the city would be responsible for $294,000. And there were calls to do the right thing for the more than 7,000 students in Revere Public Schools and the need to address overcrowding. But also in the audience on Monday night was Saugus Attorney Peter Flynn, who represents the Wonderland owners in their eminent domain lawsuit against the City of Revere. Flynn said he had received the city’s response to the complaint filed on November 17. He characterized the city’s position as “pretty standard stuff’ and added that the most significant thing about the response is that it means the lawsuit is moving forward. “We are now properly in court and we are off to the races,” said Flynn whose Saugus-based law firm specializes in eminent domain cases. And Flynn is watching how the city handles the decision on the Wonderland site, noting all the details. He said that in the city’s order of taking there’s no mention of a school until the very end. “They say the site is for a school – a school is a public purpose. Will there be a problem if they sell it for any and all municipal use? I don’t know if that’s a big deal,” said Flynn, who added that the city is in a pickle. Mayor Brian Arrigo, who has been touting a new high school since his first campaign for mayor in 2015, was so outraged by the council’s vote that he didn’t speak. Instead, he released a blistering statement the following day. “The city of Revere witnessed a grave failure in the city Council Chambers Monday night, when six elected leaders of our city – including a former teacher and a former mayor – voted no against moving forward the schematic design of the proposed New Revere High School,” wrote the mayor. “This week they proved that the City Council neither values education nor prioritizes the future of our city. I expect residents both with and without children in our public school system to be outraged by this decision.” Arrigo accused councillors of avoiding the task of developing a new school. He said they were too timid and distracted by hypothetical uncertainties and political implications. Of course, councillors who voted against the project say it was the uncertainties of how the city would pay for the project that convinced them to vote the way they did. “The financial strategies to pay for this project are built on a house of cards,” said Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto. The next meeting of the Revere High School Building Committee is scheduled for March 1. The Committee may turn its attention to returning the project to the current site of the high school. While that option may save millions that the city intended to spend on the Wonderland site, the current site of the high school comes with complications and challenges and the possibility of the need for more eminent domain takings. And there is also the time. Dakin has said all of the planning, design and engineering work done during the past year would need to be done again, while the clock ticked on with escalating costs of construction. (Editor’s Note: Members of the Revere City Council respond in open letter to Mayor Arrigo’s statement regarding City Council vote on new high school. See page _.)

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. MORE TIME TO CONSIDER AMENDMENTS (H 2023) House 23-130, rejected a rule that would prohibit technical or perfecting amendments from being considered until 30 minutes after a copy of the amendment has been received by representatives. The rule would allow such an amendment to be considered in less than 30 minutes if a two-thirds vote of the House agrees to the shortened time. “Providing a half hour to review a technical or perfecting amendment would give members an opportunity to ask questions, get answers and better understand the amendment before a vote takes place,” said sponsor GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “I think this change is eminently reasonable and fair, and it also provides an option for the 30-minute review period to be waived or suspended if enough members agree to it.” Opponents of the rule said technical amendments are just that—technical, and don’t need a half hour to review. They argued that the 30-minute requirement is unnecessary and noted members are currently informally given sufficient time to see the amendments before they are considered. (A ”Yes” vote is for allowing 30 minutes. A “No” vote is against allowing 30 minutes.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Rep. Jeff Turco No No GIVE 1-WEEK NOTICE (H 2025) House 24-129, rejected an amendment that would increase from three days to seven days the amount of advance notice for committees to notify the House and the public of the time, location and agenda of all public hearings and executive sessions. “A public hearing before a committee is the only opportunity that a person has to be directly involved in the legislative process,” said Rep. Todd Smola (R-Warren). “By expanding the notification window for when hearings take place from 72 hours to one week, we are providing the public with more time to prepare and participate in the process. We welcome the viewpoints of our constituents on bills before the Legislature, bills which are often nuanced and very complex. It is not unreasonable to provide people with a few more days’ notice before a hearing commences.” Opponents of the amendment said three days is more than sufficient and noted that under House rules, members of the public no longer have to plan far in advance to come into the Statehouse to testify since they can now testify online from their home. They noted that the increase to a week unnecessarily goes too far. (A ”Yes” vote is for requiring seven days’ notice. A “No” vote is against requiring seven days’ notice.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Rep. Jeff Turco No No ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL DON’T MISS THIS LIFE SCIENCES FORUM EVENT – The Life Sciences Industry has seen incredible growth the last decade, and Massachusetts has become a worldwide leader with continued industry growth and expansion underway.

The donor would also receive a tax credit of up to $5,000. A similar bill received a favorable report from the Judiciary Committee last year but died from inaction in the House. “Massachusetts saw the greatest percentage growth in food insecurity in the nation during the pandemic,” said sponsor Sen. Jo Comerford (DNorthampton). “It could have been even more severe had it not been for commonwealth farmers who came forward again and again with donations of produce, dairy and meat— BEACON | SEE Page 16 Law Offices of JOSEPH D.

CATALDO, CPA, CFP, MST, ESQUIRE. AICPA Personal Financial Specialist Designee avyavy S ieniorenioronior avvy Senior avvyyvy Dear Frustrated, It’s a great question! Scammers are always looking for new ways to dupe people out of money, and in the U.S., phone calls remain the primary way swindlers hook older victims. The Federal Trade Commission recently found that 24 percent of adults over age 60 who reported losing money to a scam in 2021 said it started with a phone call – the largest percentage of any method, including email, text and mail. To help protect your mom from the onslaught of robocall scams, telemarketing and spam calls, here are some tips and tools you can help her employ. Register Her Numbers If your mom hasn’t already done so, a good first step in limiting at least some unwanted calls is to make sure her home and cell phone numbers are registered with the National Do Not Call Registry. While this won’t stop fraudulent scam calls, it will stop unwanted calls from legitimate businesses who are trying to sell her something. To sign up, call 888-382-1222 from the phone number you want to register, or you can do it online at DoNotCall.gov. Cell Phone Protection Most wireless providers today offer good tools for stopping scam calls and texts. For example, AT&T has the ActiveArmor Mobile Security app; Verizon provides the Call Filter app; and T-Mobile offers the Scam Shield app. To activate these tools, download the spam-blocking app from your mom’s carrier on her phone, which you can do at the Apple and Google App store. These apps are free to use, but most carriers will also offer upgraded services that you can get for a small monthly fee. If, however, your mom uses a regional or small wireless carrier that doesn’t offer scam/robocall protection you can use a free ni nio How to Protect Seniors from Scam Calls Dear Savvy Senior, What tools can you recommend to help protect trusting seniors from scam calls? My 74-year-old mother gets tons of unwanted telemarketing and robocalls on her cell and home phone and has been duped out of hundreds of dollars. Frustrated Daughter third-party app. Truecaller (Truecaller.com), Call Control (CallControl.com), Hiya (Hiya.com) and YouMail (YouMail.com) are all good options to consider. Built-In Call Blockers Many smartphones today also offer built-in tools that can block spam calls. If your mom uses a newer iPhone (iOS 13 or later), she can completely silence all unknown callers who aren’t in her contacts list in the phone “Settings.” Silencing all unknown callers is an extreme solution that will definitely stop all unwanted calls, but your mom will also miss some legitimate calls too. However, unknown callers do have the option to leave a voice message and their calls will appear in her recent calls list. And she can add any number to her contact list to let them through in the future. If your mom owns a new Android phone, she can also block spam calls in the phone “Settings.” Or, if she owns a Samsung Galaxy phone, she can use “Smart Call,” which flags suspected spam calls and allows her to block and report them. She can also block specific reoccurring spam call numbers on iPhones and Android manually. Home Landline Protection To stop scam calls on your mom’s home phone set up the “anonymous call rejection” option. This is a free feature available from most telephone companies, however some may charge a fee. It lets you screen out calls from callers who have blocked their caller ID information – a favorite tactic of telemarketers. To set it up, you usually have to dial *77 from your landline, though different phone services may have different procedures. Call your mom’s telephone service provider to find out if they offer this tool, and if so, what you need to do to enable it. And if they don’t offer it, find out what other call blocking options they offer. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org.

We had kids going in there. It’s dangerous,” said Powers. “I’m sure there’s money owed for taxes and fees issued by the building inspector because of the condition of the building.

The case is Powers asked why this has taken so long to resolve. “We’ve been in active litigation for five years because of the complexities of the case and because of covid, which caused major delays in the court system,” said McCormick, who added that the city is still aggressively protecting its legal position. McCormick said the point of bankruptcy is to give the debtor a chance to develop a plan to pay any debts and solve problems and address complaints. “But we have to be respectful, be patient and wait for a directive from the court,” said McCormick. “Our hands are tied pending the bankruptcy action.” COMMONWEALTH OF MASSACHUSETTS THE TRIAL COURT PROBATE AND FAMILY COURT Suffolk Division Docket No. SU23P0369EA Estate of: JULIA T.

Through a tax credit, this bill further incentivizes already committed farmers, as well as generous local restaurants, to donate food to food banks, meal sites and pantries—allowing them an opportunity to give within an expanded liability protection framework while strengthening our food system.” TAX CREDIT FOR DONATION OF OYSTER SHELLS (SD 432) – Would provide a tax credit of $5 per full 5-gallon bucket to individuals or businesses that donate oyster shells to an oyster shell recycling organization. “A shell recycling tax credit presents a creative and thoughtful tool to help diminish land fill waste, create habitat and mitigate pollution in our waters,” said sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (D-Truro). “A $5 tax credit per 5-gallon bucket of recycled shells for restaurants will help encourage this environmentally friendly practice.” LAST MONTH’S RENT AND SECURITY DEPOSIT (SD 141) – Would amend a current law which allows landlords to charge both last month’s rent and a security deposit to new tenants. “If this bill is enacted, landlords will only be permitted to charge last month’s rent or the security deposit,” said sponsor Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). In short, this bill significantly lowers the upfront cost of renting.” PRESIDENTIAL CANDIDATES MUST RELEASE TAX RETURNS (SD 617) – Would require any presidential candidate who files to appear on a primary ballot in Massachusetts to release the most recent four years of their federal tax returns. “For half a century, it has been a biYour Hometown News Delivered!

Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “I filed this legislation because voters deserve transparency from presidential candidates. Tax returns provide the necessary information to assess the details of a candidate’s potential conflicts of interest or possible corruption which could have an undue influence on candidates should they be elected to office.” ESTABLISH CHILDREN’S CABINET (SD 2242) – Would establish, under the governor’s office, a Children’s Cabinet to develop and implement a cohesive vision using integrated services to improve child, youth and family outcomes, including issues relating to child poverty, educational preparedness, mental health, homelessness, foster care, juvenile justice and the health, safety and welfare of children. “I am proud to sponsor this legislation so we can ensure the wellbeing of our children is prioritized and elevated across the most powerful cabinets of state government,” said sponsor Sen. Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett). “Children across our state were some of the hardest hit individuals throughout the pandemic.” He noted the new cabinet will coordinate government agencies to use every lever of power to feed, house and protect our kids. $1,500 TAX CREDIT FOR HEARING AIDS PURCHASE (SD 355) – Would allow a $1,500 tax credit for taxpayers 55 and older who purchase hearing aids. “Hearing loss is one of the most common struggles for our seniors and many times these devices are out of their financial reach,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “Insurance companies will often only cover the cost of one hearing aid, even if the patient may need one in each ear to hear. Every citizen should have the right to a comfortable life and this tax credit would help reduce the financial burden many seniors face and allow them to carry on with everyday life.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “[We] appreciate the support and partnership with USDA’s Food and Nutrition Service and remain committed to ensuring that our most vulnerable populations, including elders, have access to local, fresh food. At a time when food insecurity rates remain high, the added benefit will provide elders with high-quality, nutritious food while supporting our Massachusetts farmers and food producers.” — Massachusetts Department of Agricultural Resources Commissioner John Lebeaux announcing that Massachusetts has been awarded $1.4 million to expand the Senior Farmers Market Nutrition Program. “Massachusetts has completely lost its economic competitive edge, now having the highest top tax rate for income taxes in New England, and seventh highest in the entire country. Despite this setback, some Massachusetts lawmakers are pushing forward with ways to add more taxes such as penalizing couples when they file their taxes as married.” — Paul Craney, spokesman for the Mass Fiscal Alliance on a new Tax Foundation report. “His public health expertise and military service make him uniquely qualified to serve as Massachusetts’ first-ever Secretary of Veterans’ Services. I’m confident that he will be the leader our veterans need and deserve and will always stand up for their health, safety and wellbeing.” — Gov. Maura Healey on appointing Rep. Jon Santiago (D-Boston), a major in the U.S. Army Reserve and a physician as the state’s Secretary of Veterans’ Affairs which was recently elevated to a cabinet level position. “One thing I did hear as I crisscrossed the state is, yes, folks want us to pay attention to some national issues, of course, and protect us, but they don’t want us to forget the issues we have to deal with here at home.” — Attorney General Andrea Campbell. 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 February 2024, the House met for a total of nine minutes while the Senate met for a total of four minutes. Mon. Feb. 20 No House session No Senate session Tues.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 3, 2023 TENURE | FROM Page 1 Arrigo stepped onto the city’s political stage in 2012 when he was elected to the City Council. Three years later voters made him mayor over incumbent Mayor Dan Rizzo after a tight and contentious race that ended with a recount and a thin 108 vote margin of victory. In 2019, Arrigo won reelection after a heated rematch with Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo. Arrigo campaigned on and delivered municipal government that was efficient, responsive to all parts of the community and accountable. A life-long resident of the city, Arrigo’s love for Revere was always on his sleeve. It led him to imagine a modern city blessed with incomparable natural resources and plenty of nearby opportunity. “I deeply love our growing close knit coastal community,’ Arrigo told residents in his letter. “Revere is and always will be home to me.” Arrigo did not say specifical1.

What metal is liquid at room temperature? 7. What creator of “A Prairie Home Companion” said, “March is the month God created to show people who don’t drink what a hangover is like”? 8.

On March 9, 1959, what Mattel doll was introduced? ly where he plans to head next. He said only that he intends to spend more time with his family and to continue to pursue public service outside of elected office in some capacity. “I wish him and his family the best,” said Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto. “We worked collaboratively on a number of big projects. Suffolk Downs is probably the best development we’ll ever get in this city.” Other councillors also noted the many positive changes Arrigo brought to Revere. “I think he has a lot of accomplishments on his resume,” said Ward 5 Councillor John Powers. “But I think the no vote on the high school was surprising, even displeasing to him.” Powers said Arrigo has done a tremendous job representing the city with honesty, integrity and performance. “Think of the things we’ve done in this city,” said Powers, who added that if Arrigo changes his mind, he would support him. Councillor-at-Large Marc Silvestri said it was a sad day for Revere. “The mayor has done a great job helping the city turn the page and move into the future. But people move on. I think the foundation he laid for us will continue to benefit the city.” Councillor-at-Large Gerry Visconti also praised Arrigo and his accomplishments. “Mayor Arrigo has been a catalyst for the growth in our city and it has been a pleasure to work with him over the years, whether it was during my time on the school committee or at the city council level. His dedication to the City of Revere is unquestionable and so is the impact he has made to our community as mayor. I wish him, his wife and his wonderful family all the best in their next endeavor,’ said Visconti. Still Arrigo has chosen an odd time to step aside. The high school building project is off schedule and in disarray. And the city is facing an eminent domain law suit from the owners of Wonderland. “In unifying a divided city, focusing on bridging the gap between historically overlooked neighborhoods and City Hall, bringing government closer to people with 311 and promoting more transparency into how our city operates and serves its people – slowly we built our team, we built trust, and our city thrived.” Arrigo thanked the community for their trust. “Supported by my incredible family, friends, and staff, the last eight years I’ve served as your mayor has been the honor of my life,” he wrote.
