FIRST COMMUNITY SUPPORT FAIR FIRST SEE PAGE 16 Vol. 29, No.11 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday E F id Senatorial race divides local Democrats By Barbara Taormina F or Revere Democrats, last Saturday was a caucus to remember. The Revere Democratic City Committee hosted the event, which was organized to elect delegates and alternates to the Massachusetts Democratic State Convention, which will be held on May 30 at the Tsongas Center in Lowell. “More than 50 Revere residents attended and took an active role in our democracy,” said Ward 6 City Councillor Richard Serino, who is also chairman of the Democratic City Committee. “This was the most well-attended and diverse caucus I can remember. It truly refl ected the people who make up the fabric of our city and who make our community special,” he added. The state convention is a blazing-blue gathering of thousands of Democrats from around the state who meet to talk shop and prepare for the upcoming election. Nationally, Democrats are tuning up for a chorus calling for unity. But in Massachusetts, it’s complicated. Democrats throughout the state and 617-387-2200 Friday, March 13, 2020 Revere closes schools indefinitely By Christopher Roberson A lthough there are no confi rmed reports of the coronavirus in Revere, Mayor Brian Arrigo expects this to change. Therefore, he recently announced that the Revere Public Schools will be closed until further notice. “In the interest of public health, Ricky Serino Supports incumbent Markey in Revere are split on the race between U.S. Senator Ed Markey, who is facing a primary challenge from U.S. Congressman Joe Kennedy III. Markey, a well-known and much-loved Massachusetts Democrat, has been in Congress since 1976. He served in the House until 2013, when he was elected to the Senate to fi ll the seat left open by John Kerry, who was appointed secretary of state.

KenPatrick Keefe Supports challenger Kennedy nedy, was elected in 2013 to represent the state’s 4th Congressional district. As for the Kennedy mystique, the congressman wears it well. “I am proud to be a delegate to our state convention who will be supporting Sen. Ed Markey because, as a City Councilor, I feel strongly that Senator Markey is the best suited candidate in his race to represent Revere,” said Serino. “After spending time with him, I’ve come to realize Ed truly does recognize what a special we are stepping up our mitigation eff orts to stop the spread of coronavirus, including today’s decision to close schools,” said Arrigo. “Today we formalized our response plan with our external networks allowing us better coordination with cities and towns across our region as we all work to stem the spread and hasten containment. Currently, we are focused on solidifying our ability to provide ongoing services to residents as this outbreak continues to evolve and provide strategic wellbeing checks for our seniors and other vulnerable populations. We will continue to update residents consistently to ensure our communities have the most up to date information and facts available from a trusted, offi cial source.” During this time, the schools will announce plans for virtual learning and food service. “Although no member of our school community has tested positive for coronavirus, we see the trends across the state leading in that direction and are choosing to close schools proactively,” said Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly. “Our teams are working to address the most immediate needs of our students and families that will be aff ected by school closures, particularly in the development of plans to provide meals and instruction during this time. As we have done for the past several days, the school department will continue to provide information to our students, families and staff on a regular basis.” Although the schools will be closed, there are no plans to close any city offi ces at this time.

We’re asking everyone to do their part to prevent the spread of illness and follow the guidance being issued by state and federal offi cials.” Actions for All Revere Residents to Take The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) has advised that the best way to prevent illness is to avoid being exposed to COVID-19. The CDC has provided a number of basic steps all residents can take to protect themselves, including washing your hands often, avoiding close contact with those who are sick, staying home when sick, covering coughs and sneezes, and cleaning and disinfecting frequently touched surfaces. Residents with questions or concerns can contact the city 24/7 simply by dialing 311, or via email at 311@revere.org. Health & Well-Being of Vulnerable Populations Older people and people of all ages with severe underlying health conditions seem to be at higher risk of developing serious COVID-19 illness. To that end, the City is taking the following measures: • The Revere Senior Center will be closed for 30 days, effective Thursday, March 12; however, services will continue. • Fitness classes regularly provided at the Senior Center will be made available on RevereTV starting March 16. • Elderly Services is initiating daily breakfast deliveries, home visits and phone check-ins for seniors. • We have reached out to local pharmacies to request increased deliveries to prevent the need for in-person pickup. • We are in close contact with leadership at senior housing and nursing facilities throughout Revere, including Friendly Garden, Jack Satter House and Hyman Towers, to offer additional support as needed. We are reinforcing guidance issued from the state for nursing homes and assisted living facilities in Revere.

Whelan School teachers who I think are being unfairly treated due to their suspension. My issue with the school is in 2019 my son was refused his asthma treatments repeatedly from the nurses. The principal was well aware what was going on even with doctors letters they still refused to give my son his treatments it all fi nally stopped when I went down to the school furious they then decided to apologize to my son and I. My son begged me to let it go and not take any further action against the school. He was afraid he would be thrown out of the only school he knows where he has many friends. The impact that his teacher imprinted on my child’s life is powerful and for her not to be there to teach him on the days due to her suspension my son is now ready to tell his story on what really happens at the Whelan School.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 Page 5 Health and safety violations force residents out of North Shore Road home By Barbara Taormina T he Board of Health voted last week to issue a fi nding that the three-family house at 1510 North Shore Road is dangerous and occupants must vacant the property within 10 days. Peter Brown, the attorney who represents the city’s Inspectional Services Department and the Fire Department, requested the order and listed the property’s many safety and health violations, including a failure to install proper heating and electrical systems, exposed wiring, illegal plumbing, failure to maintain structural elements, and an illegal basement apartment, all of which were documented during four building inspections that were done over the past six years. Brown described the building as an illegal rooming house that has been deteriorating since the owner died in 2017, with no family or heirs to assume ownership of the property. “People have come in and taken over the property, a property that has been lost to the streets,” said Brown, adding that he thinks there may be dozens of people living in the house. But longtime occupants of 1510 North Shore Road, including families that live on the second and third fl oors, offered a diff erent picture of the property. They explained that they paid rent and lived in the building, which was undergoing some maintenance and repairs until the owner died. They said they waited for a new owner to take over, but no one ever came. Although they have not paid rent for several years, they said they pay for utilities and have done work on the building, which they acknowledge is in serious need of repair. A companion of the property owner stepped in after his death to manage his estate, including 1510 North Shore Road. But Brown said he thinks she abandoned that plan because of the property’s fi nancial condition. “There was a big reverse mortgage that sucked the equity out of the property,” he said, adding that more than $200,000 is now owed on the house. Brown said the bank disavowed the property for some time but resurfaced about four months ago, with foreclosure and auction plans. “We know there is a lot of interest in this property from local developers,” said Brown, adding that the city would like to work with a new owner to rehabilitate the property. Brown said a request for an order to vacate is only done in cases where the property is in such bad condition that the lives of the occupants, neighbors and fi rst responders who might answer an emergency call at the house are in jeopardy. The woman who lives on the second floor of 1510 North Shore Road acknowledged the house is dangerous. But she asked the board to extend the 10-day order to vacate to 30 days so she could keep her son in school while she looks for another place to live. But Brown told board members that the accelerated deadline would open the door to more resources that wouldn’t otherwise be available because the case would qualify as a super emergency.

The Department is monitoring the evolving COVID-19 situation closely, and, thus far, there have been a limited-but-growing number of COVID-19 cases in Massachusetts. According to Mass. gov, as of March 11, in Massachusetts there were six confi rmed cases and 89 presumptive cases, with 19 of these cases occurring within the communities of Suff olk County. In accordance with state guidelines and recommendations, the Department is taking steps to minimize the possible exposure of staff and inmates and detainees, and to maintain a safe work place by reviewing, and where necessary, adopting new practices to protect the health of all employees and inmates while the Department’s mission is performed.

Speaking on the coronavirus, Gravellese added that “residents should not panic, but should continue to take note of reliable sources on public health and take proper precautions.” The Department is taking the following steps: • Increasing orders for personal safety equipment, including gloves, masks, hand sanitizers and dispensers, soap and paper towels • Communicating with staff through postings, roll calls and e-mails about the signs and symptoms of COVID-19 and reminding them about effective methods to safeguard against it • Increasing the regular cleaning and sanitizing of communal surfaces and frequently touched objects • Disinfecting transport vehicles regularly • Suspending all inmate/detainee visits, except for attorney visits • Restricting volunteers and outside program staff and activities • Coordinating with medical and food vendors to ensure preparedness • Developing contingency plans to address the potential needs of the institu“From working closely with the state’s Department of Public Health during my career, I know that we are fortunate to have some of the world’s foremost experts on public health working right here in the Commonwealth. We should take their guidance seriously as it becomes available. “The goal in the coming weeks is to make sure that the virus spreads less quickly, so that our hospitals and clinics aren’t overwhelmed. If we do that, people tions should an inmate(s)/ detainee(s) be diagnosed with COVID-19, in addition to a host of other measures With respect to the temporary suspension of inmate and detainee visits, the Department will be providing the opportunity for them to make a call to family members and friends to notify them of the temporary restriction.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 Page 7 Officials present timeline for citywide resident parking program By Barbara Taormina T he Traffi c Commission approved citywide overnight resident parking last April with the intention of launching the program at the start of winter, and then in December and now, according to the latest word from City Hall, soon. Last month, Parking Department and Traffi c Commission offi cials were at the City Council’s Public Works Sub-Committee meeting with an update on the program that will restrict parking from midnight to 6 a.m. to vehicles with a resident parking sticker. “When we started this, the idea was to put signs at the entrances to the city alerting people that we have permitted parking,” said Public Works Superintendent Paul Argenzio, who is also chairman of the Traffi c Commission. But Argenzio said that after discussing the program with members of the police and traffi c departments, it became clear that signs would be needed for every street in the city. According to Argenzio, most of Revere’s street sweeping signs that were put up back in 2001 have faded or disappeared. The city decided that the 15,000 to 16,000 new signs will be a combination of street sweeping schedules and the overnight resident parking restriction. Argenzio said the city was in the process INCIDENT | FROM PAGE 3 In addition, Ennamorati and Armstrong admitted that they had been drinking and were “behaving belligerently.” As a result, on February 27, Ennamorati was charged with two misdemeanor counts of Assault and Battery, two felony counts of Violating Constitutional Rights with Bodily Injury and one felony count of Assault & Battery with a Dangerous Weapon to wit: shod foot. Armstrong was charged with two misdemeanor counts of Assault and Battery and two felony counts of Violation of Constitutional Rights with Bodily Injury. In response to the incident, Rollins reiterated that Suff olk County has “no place for hatred or bigotry.” “The sense of entitlement and privilege these defendants must have felt to utter these hateful and racist words, and then to physof getting quotes for the signs and the plan was to open bidding for the installation at end of February. “By May 1, hopefully, we will have most of the signs up,” said Argenzio, adding that enforcement of the overnight restriction would not start until all the signs are posted. The plan is to use existing poles, although Argenzio added that there will probably be a need to erect some new poles to fi ll some gaps. The new signs will not be put up in the commuter areas, which already have specific parking restrictions. Argenzio said once the bulk of the citywide signs are up, the city will begin updating signs in the commuter areas to include the new overnight restriction. Argenzio also said that the Traffi c Commission has decided to table any new requests for parking restrictions in the commuter areas until the city gets overnight resident parking off the ground. Parking Department Director Jim Rose said the city has hired City Hall Systems, which will be working with excise tax records to produce the resident parking stickers, which will be color-coded for four different areas in the city and will include a barcode and vehicle plate number. “Anyone who has a vehicle registered in Revere and has paid excise tax will get a stickically attack a mother and her child for laughing and speaking Spanish is outrageous and reprehensible,” she said. “In Suff olk County, we respect and protect everyone, no matter the God you worship, who you love, how you identify, the language you speak, your immigration status, or your physical and mental abilities. Everyone is welcome here. Everyone is worthy of dignity and respect. Everyone deserves to feel safe.” Rollins said she has also called upon the Civil Rights Unit of the Boston Police Department for further investigation. “The rise in hate crimes is completely unacceptable,” she said. “I take these allegations very seriously and will personally be watching this case at every step.” Ennamorati and Armstrong are scheduled to appear in East Boston District Court on April 28. Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma ATM on site Sunday er mailed to their address free of charge,” said Rose, adding that the hope is to start sending out stickers sometime in March. Each household will be able purchase one visitor pass, temporary passes and special consideration passes at the Parking Department for a $10 fee, which will be waived for seniors over 65 and disabled veterans. Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso said he is happy to see the resident parking program coming to fruition but added that he is concerned about the many people who currently violate the city’s parking regulations. “I see it on Lowell Street every day and it drives me nuts,” said Guinasso, who asked if the Parking Department has enough manpower to enforce the overnight restriction. “We have 500 streets and six parking control offi cers spread out through the city, and they are doing a great job,” said Rose, who added that the department will add one more enforcement officer for the overnight hours. “We will be enforcing this, and enforcing it aggressively,” he said.

MBTA announces increased sanitation schedule as part of state’s planning for COVID-19 T he MBTA recently outlined additional measures that will augment existing precautionary actions to sanitize public transit spaces more frequently as part of the state’s ongoing preparedness planning for the novel coronavirus (COVID-19). Working in close coordination with the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH) and other health professionals, the MBTA is taking additional steps to protect the health and safety of customers and employees as public health offi cials monitor the situation. “Although the risk for COVID-19 remains low in Massachusetts, we are taking steps to protect the health and safety of our customers and our employees by expanding disinfecting and sanitation measures,” said MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. “As an additional precaution, we remind the public to follow existing best practices from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention and Massachusetts Department of Public Health to protect themselves.” New enhanced precautionary actions taken by the MBTA include the following: Cleaning and disinfecting: The MBTA is expanding and enhancing the frequency and intensity of cleaning procedures with its contracted cleaning vendors. All MBTA fl eet vehicles – buses, trolleys, subway cars, Commuter Rail coaches, ferries and RIDE vehicles – will be disinfected on a daily basis. This measure augments regularly scheduled cleaning and sanitizing protocols already in place. All MBTA customer business site locations, including the RIDE Eligibility Center, will be disinfected once every 24 hours. Additionally, the T has issued a protocol requiring all high-contact surfaces at subway stations to be cleaned every four hours. This protocol specifi cally targets areas across the system, including station handrails, fare gates and fare vending machines.

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 New Study: TCI costs higher than initially reported; cost of diesel finally disclosed T he Fiscal Alliance Foundation (the Foundation) recently announced the results of a study on the costs associated with implementation of the Transportation and Climate Initiative (TCI) in Massachusetts. TCI is an eff ort by the administration of Governor Charlie Baker to form a regional gas and diesel tax increase with neighboring states. Thus far, leaders from all surrounding New England states have cast doubts as to their participation, with New Hampshire already withdrawn from the agreement outright. Virginia is the southernmost state, and its leaders indicated the state will not join in 2020. The study was commissioned by the Foundation and conducted by the Beacon Hill Institute (BHI). The Foundation is an IRS-determined 501(c)3 nonpartisan, nonprofi t organization, and its chairwoman is Attorney Danielle Webb. Its website is www.FiscalAllianceFoundation.org. TCI claims the cost of gasoline fuel will increase by 17 cents per gallon and will result            in a 25 percent reduction in CO2 emissions. The 25 percent reduction is derived by a 19 percent reduction due to the current policies in place without implementing TCI, and by adding TCI an additional six percent could be achieved under the best-case scenario. Under this TCI scenario, the increase to the cost of diesel fuel is not disclosed. The BHI model found that if TCI’s goal is to hit a 25 percent reduction, the cost of gasoline fuel would increase by 26 cents per gallon and the cost of diesel fuel would increase by 52 cents per gallon. The study also found that 9,667 private sector jobs would be lost in Massachusetts and every family would be faced with a $738 increase in taxes. The Global Greenhouse Gas (GHG) reductions would not make an impact on the environment. The TCI 25 percent reduction in 2022 would count for 0.00090 percent reduction, and by 2026 it would only be 0.00083 percent. “What the study found here is truly astounding. The cost associated with TCI is magnitudes larger than previously reported. For the fi rst time, we now know how many private sector jobs would be lost, and the increase in taxes it would cost every Massachusetts family,” said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MassFiscal) Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Craney. “The most appalling fact that’s been missing by TCI is the price on diesel costs. Now we know a price and it will come with a high cost, which will negatively impact commerce and the transportation of almost all goods in Massachusetts. This would have a signifi cant impact for consumers with virtually no environmental benefi t,” said Craney. ~ LETTER TO THE EDITOR ~ Coronavirus could limit number of blood donors Dear Editor: While public health offi cials work to limit the spread of the 2019 Novel Coronavirus (COVID-19), I’m writing about another potential public health issue – the availability of our blood supply for patients.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 Page 11 10th Annual Harpoon Shamrock Splash raises $50K for Free Better Beaches programs & events O n Sunday, March 8, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s 10th annual Harpoon Shamrock Splash to benefit Save the Harbor and DCR’s Better Beaches Program partnership brought nearly 300 beach lovers together to raise funds to support free beach events and programs from Nahant to Nantasket in 2020. This year, the “pledge and plunge” cold water fundraiser raised more than $50,000 to provide grants to community organizations to support free concerts, beach festivals, and youth programs on public beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull. Participants could direct their fundraising to their favorite local beach. South Boston led with $6,921 followed by Dorchester with $4,298 and Lynn and Nahant with $3,820. Participants raised $3,155 for Winthrop, $2,949 for Wollaston Beach in Quincy, $2,365 for Nantasket Beach in Hull, $1,875 for Revere Beach and $1,595 for Constitution Beach in East Boston. “Thirty years ago nobody wanted to go swimming on the region’s public beaches. Today we are proud to say they are some of the cleanest urban beaches in the country,” said Save the Harbor President Chris Mancini. “It’s amazing to see the community that supports this event and supports our beaches from Nahant to Nantasket.” Before the sprint to the sea, Kennedy Elsey of Mix 104.1 pumped everyone up for the run into the Atlantic, but participants didn’t need much encouragement this year.

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 Two Patriots earn all-league recognition By Greg Phipps S hortly after its season ended in the opening round of the Div. 1 North playoff s, the Revere High School boys’ basketball team received news last week that juniors Dillan Day and Crisrael Lithgow were named to the Greater Boston League (GBL) all-star team. The Patriots completed an 11-10 performance for 2019-20 and won their fi nal six regular-season games to capture a playoff berth. Head coach David Leary said the prospects for next year are promising with the return of the two all-star underclassmen. “Dillan was consistent game in and game out, averaging close to a double-double scoring and rebounding, and [Lithgow] was our leading scorer for the season and was the second leading scorer in the league,” Leary pointed out. Lithgow had some huge scoring performances during the season and is capable of lighting it up from downtown Revere junior forward Dillan Day as well as penetrating to the hoop. Day is an eff ective presence both defensively and on off ense. His ability to anticipate plays and get to the basket is a big plus. “[Lithgow’s] ability to shoot the three-pointer and get to the basket makes it tough to stop him. We look forward to seeing how much they can both improve this off season and come Revere junior guard Crisrael Lithgow back poised for … senior year,” Leary said. The Patriots sat at 5-9 after 14 games this winter and appeared to be out of the playoff hunt. But they regrouped and went on an impressive 6-0 run to end the regular season. That streak included a tournament championship at the annual General Patton Tourney at HamiltonWenham Regional High School. Wickens, Platcow named hockey all-stars By Greg Phipps H aving come up four points short of making the postseason tournament this winter, the Revere/Malden/Matignon Patriots received word recently that two of their players were selected to the Greater Boston League hockey allstar team. Freshman goalie Cam Wickens capped off a fi ne inaugural varsity season by getting an all-league nod. Senior defenseman Eric Platcow was the other recipient. Senior guard Erika Cheever Throughout the season, Patriots head coach Joe Ciccarello cited the strong play from Wickens and talked about how the young netminder kept the Patriots in many games. Defense was another positive area the coach often Revere battled through a 5-15 campaign and did not qualify for the playoff s. Cheever was the team’s leading scorer with multiple 20-plus point eff orts, including a 30-point performance against Medford on Senior Night. She finished her career with 20 points in the team’s fi nal game against Peabody in the consolation round of the Larry McIntire Tournament at Beverly Senior player Katie O’Donnell High School back in February. O’Donnell was the team’s other starting guard. She played aggressive defense and had the ability to eff ectively drive to the basket. Shortly after the season concluded, head coach Matt Willis praised the attitude and effort from his two senior captains. “I can’t say enough good things about them and everything they’ve done for the program,” he said. “Their leadership and perseverance through a tough season will set an example for the younger players.” The Lady Patriots do have some strong returnees for next season, including guard Skyla DeSimone, who led the team in scoring on several occasions, and Alana Nelson, who came on strong at the end of the year. mentioned, a facet that was reinforced by Platcow’s play. “We struggled to score all year, but defense and goaltending were our strengths,” Ciccarello pointed out. The Patriots won six games overall, including victories over East Boston and Lynn to end the season. A trip to the playoff s was missed due mostly to four ties that kept the team shy of the necessary points to qualify for tourney play. The program became a Senior defenseman Eric Platcow Freshman goalie Cam Wickens three-team merger this season with Matignon being added. Ciccarello said it took some time for the players to get familiar with each other and be able to function eff ectively together. A slow start to the season put the Patriots behind the eight ball, and they could not overcome it in the end. Cheever, O’Donnell receive all-league honors By Greg Phipps T he 2019-20 season didn’t end up being what the Revere High School girls’ basketball team hoped for, but the Lady Patriots received some good news last week when senior captains Erika Cheever and Katie O’Donnell received Greater Boston League (GBL) all-star recognition.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records votes of local representatives from the week of March 2-6. There were no roll calls in the Senate last week. ESTIMATED $18 BILLION IN TRANSPORTATION PROJECTS (H 4506) House 150-1, approved and sent to the Senate an estimated $18 billion bond bill authorizing spending on transportation projects and infrastructure over the next ten years. Provisions include $5.6 billion for federal highway system projects, $1.75 billion for the design, construction and repair of non-federally aided roadway and bridge projects and another $1.25 billion for construction, resurfacing and improvements of bridges and approaches. The bill also increases Chapter 90 funding to cities and towns for road and bridge repairs from $200 million to $300 million. The package is a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds. The package includes earmarks for hundreds of millions of dollars for hundreds of projects in legislators’ districts across the state — many of which will never be funded. The Baker administration is required to adhere to the state’s annual bond borrowing cap and ultimately decides which projects are aff ordable and actually get funded. Sometimes a legislator will immediately tout the inclusion of local projects in these types pf bond bills, especially in an election year to show he or she “brought home the bacon.” But be warned that none of the projects in this package have yet been funded and most will end up never being funded because of the borrowing cap and the power of the governor’s offi ce to pick which projects actually get the green light. “The House’s transportation funding package is an important step forward in fi xing the commonwealth’s transportation crisis,” said Chris Dempsey, Director of the Transportation for Massachusetts coalition. “We applaud House members for taking a balanced approach to addressing transportation needs and ensuring that statewide investments will improve daily commutes in every city and town. We’ve dug ourselves a big hole and this bill is an important step to help us climb out.” “The transportation bond bill was an earmarked-fi lled document which is being treated as one Democratic chairman noted, as “Monopoly money,” said Rep. Marc Lombardo (RBillerica), the lone opponent of the measure. “Massachusetts already has the largest per capita debt in the nation and some of the highest cost per highway mile in the nation. We need to do better.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes ESTIMATED $522 MILLION TO $600 MILLION TAX HIKE FOR TRANSPORTATION (H 4508) House 113-40, approved and sent to the Senate an estimated $522 million to $600 million tax hike package to fund improvements to the state’s transportation system. Hikes include a 5 cents-per-gallon increase in the motor vehicle gas excise tax; a 9 cents-per-gallon increase in the diesel fuel tax; an increase in the aviation fuel tax from 5 percent of the average price per gallon to 7.5 percent of the average price per gallon; elimination of the sales tax exemption on vehicle purchases for traditional rental car companies; replacing the current fl at $456 minimum corporate excise tax with a nine-tiered sliding scale ranging from $456 if the corporation’s total sales are less than $1 million to $150,000 if the corporation’s sales total $1 billion; and increasing the 20 cents-per-trip fl at fee to $1.20 for each non-shared Uber and Lyft ride and $2.20 for every luxury ride. The bill includes language aimed at preventing Uber and Lyft from passing those hikes directly onto riders. “We applaud the House for recognizing the importance of providing much needed transportation resources for the state,” said John Pourbaix, Executive Director of the Construction Industries of Massachusetts. “With the passage of the Transportation Revenue Bill, the House has acted in a way to better position Massachusetts to undertake the much-needed improvements in our substandard roads and bridges, our underperforming transit system, our overcrowded interchanges and choke points, and our critical local infrastructure.” “Massachusetts consistently squanders over 300 percent more than the national average for its annual highway maintenance, most dramatically in administrative costs,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Over the past few years the state has been raking in billions in revenue surpluses, aka over-taxation, and when the Millionaire’s Tax is approved as expected it will add two billion more a year to that. But the standard assertion is that more, more, always more is needed for transportation. Spending review, reform and cost-cutting is rare at best in Massachusetts,” he added, “but imposition of ever higher taxes is just as reliably perpetual.” “The legislation passed by the House today puts Massachusetts on the road to both a better statewide transportation system, and a more equitable approach to transportation funding,” said Andrew Farnitano, spokesman for Raise Up Massachusetts. “Corporate taxes are an essential part of this revenue package, and we are glad the House rejected pressure from corporate lobbyists to remove the tiered corporate minimum tax from the bill. Large corporations make massive profi ts by using our transportation infrastructure to move their goods and customers and they must pay their share to help fund transportation improvements.” “Regressive tax schemes, like Speaker DeLeo’s tax hike to the state’s gasoline and diesel tax, hit the middle class and the working poor the hardest,” said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance spokesman Paul Craney. “The gas tax hike will come out of the earnings of the hard-working taxpayers who rely on their vehicle to get to work, run errands and operate a business. Instead of looking at how to spend taxpayer’s money more wisely, Speaker DeLeo added an additional cost onto the backs of the state’s already very generous taxpayers.” “It has become clearer by the day that the need for more transportation revenue is real and it is immediate,” said Rep. Aaron Michlewitz, chair of the House Ways and Means Committee, during the fl oor debate. “Whether your constituents come from a district that is considered urban or rural or anything in between, it is undeniable that our transportation system is not meeting the needs that our citizens expect and deserve.” “I listen to the people,” said Rep. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica). “I can tell you no one is calling my offi ce saying pass the gas tax. The opposite is true. I am hearing from families who don’t want their budgets stretched. I am hearing from soccer moms who bring their children to activities. I am hearing from seniors who live on a fi xed income. Like me, they believe that Beacon Hill needs to reform spending, not increase taxes.” (A “Yes” vote is for the tax hikes. A “No” vote is against them.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Yes Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes NO TAX HIKES IF MILLIONAIRE’S TAX IS APPROVED (H 4508) House 36-118, rejected an amendment that would repeal all the tax increases, except the one on Lyft and Uber, if the proposed Millionaire’s Tax ballot question is approved by Massachusetts voters in November of 2022. The tax, estimated to raise up to $2 billion per year, would allow a graduated income tax in Massachusetts and impose an additional 4 percent income tax, in addition to the current fl at 5.1 percent tax, on taxpayers’ earnings of more than $1 million. Language in the amendment requires that “subject to appropriation” the revenue will go to fund quality public education, aff ordable public colleges and universities and for the repair and maintenance of roads, bridges and public transportation. “Speaker DeLeo has said repeatedly that the transportation fi nance bill is a ‘bridge’ to the Millionaire’s Tax, which is projected to generate $2 billion in new revenues for education and transportation,” said Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading), the sponsor of the amendment. “If the money from the ballot question is really going to be spent on transportation, then I think it’s only fair the tax increases contained in this bill be sunset once those new revenues start coming in.” Amendment opponents said the House should not tie the hands of future legislatures by tying the current tax hike package to the Millionaire’s Tax. They noted the two are separate proposals and noted the Millionaire’s Tax is not even guaranteed to be on the 2022 ballot. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo No Rep. RoseLee Vincent No STUDY/DELAY TAX HIKES (H 4508) House 35-119, rejected an amendment that would indefi nitely delay the implementation of the tax hikes until Gov. Charlie Baker’s Offi ce of Administration and Finance and the Department of Revenue furnish a study of the taxes’ impact on the state’s economy and on cities and towns. The study would include an analysis of the impact on taxpayers of varying income levels, current practices of other states and any anticipated changes in employment and ancillary economic activity resulting from the tax increases. “This study language is identical to what the Democratic leadership has used many times in the past to block Republican-sponsored amendments during fl oor debate,” said Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading), the amendment’s sponsor. “I say what’s good for the goose is good for the gander. Collectively, these tax increases will cost the state’s taxpayers and employers more than $600 million, which is reason enough to conduct a study of the long-term implications of these tax proposals before they’re implemented.” Opponents of the study said it is craftily worded to simply kill the tax hikes. They noted the study is assigned to the Baker administration which is opposed to many of these tax hikes and is unlikely to ever conduct the study. (A “Yes” vote is for the study. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo No Rep. RoseLee Vincent No STRIKE THE INCREASE IN MINIMUM CORPORATION TAX (H 4508) House 35-119, rejected an amendment that would strike a section of the bill that would replace the current fl at $456 minimum corporate excise tax with a nine-tiered sliding scale ranging from $456 if the corporation’s total sales are less than $1 million to $150,000 if the corporation’s sales total $1 billion. “The proposed changes to the corporate minimum excise tax would put Massachusetts employers at a competitive disadvantage, hurt job Tues. March 3 No House session growth and make it even more diffi - cult to attract new businesses to the state,” said the amendment’s sponsor Rep. Liz Poirier (R-North Attleboro). “The advocates who are pushing for this new tax structure haven’t taken into consideration online retail sales tax collections, combined reporting and other major business tax policy changes that have been implemented over the last decade.” Supporters of the new tiering system said this sliding scale protects small businesses but also makes sure that large companies pay their share into the state’s transportation system. (The roll call was on striking the increase. Therefore a “Yes” vote is AGAINST the increase in the current $456 minimum corporate tax. A “No” vote is FOR the increase.) Rep. Bob DeLeo No Rep. RoseLee Vincent No EXEMPT CITIES AND TOWNS FROM GAS TAX (H 4508) House 36-118, rejected an amendment that would exempt cities and towns’ vehicle fuel purchases from the state’s gas tax. Some state agencies are currently either exempt from the gas tax or receive a rebate, including regional transportation authorities, the MBTA, the Massachusetts Water Resources Authority and Massport. “Municipal budgets are already under an enormous strain, and this exemption would help to ease the fi - nancial burden on cities and towns by freeing up resources they can allocate to support essential municipal services,” said Rep. Brad Jones (RNorth Reading), the amendment’s sponsor. Opponents of the exemption said it would result in a loss of tax revenue and weakens the bill. They noted that cities and towns will be benefi ting from all the tax hikes, including the gas tax. They argued Chapter 90 funds for maintenance and repair of local roads and bridges will also increase by 50 percent. (A “Yes” vote is for the exemption. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo No Rep. RoseLee Vincent 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 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 March 2-6, the House met for a total of 19 hours and 39 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 24 minutes. Mon. March 2 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. Senate 11:11 a.m. to 11:24 a.m. No Senate session Wed. March 4 House 11:58 a.m. to 8:29 p.m. No Senate session Thurs.

Page 18 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 OBITUARIES Frank D. “Sonny” Rao Important Legal Documents All Seniors Should Have Dear Savvy Senior, What kinds of legal documents do I need to prepare to help my family after I’m gone? I would like to get my aff airs in order but could use some help. Almost 75 Dear Almost, All adults – especially seniors – should have at least four essential legal documents to protect yourself and your family. These documents will make sure your wishes regarding your estate are legal and clear and will help minimize any confl icts and confusion with your family and your health care providers if you become seriously ill or when you die. Here are the key documents you need, along with some tips to help you create them. Will: This document lets you spell out your wishes of how you’d like your property and assets distributed after you die, whether it’s to family, friends or a charity. It also allows you to designate an executor to ensure your wishes are carried out and allows you to name guardians if you have dependent children. In addition to a will, if you own real estate or have considerable assets, another option you may want to consider is a “revocable living trust.” This functions like a will but allows your estate to avoid the time and expense of probate (the public legal process that examines your estate after you die) and helps ensure your estate’s privacy. Durable Power of Attorney: This allows you to designate someone you trust to handle your fi nancial matters if you become incapacitated. Advanced Health Care Directive: This includes two documents that spell out your wishes regarding your end-of-life medical treatment. The two documents are a “living will” which tells your doctor what kind of care you want to receive if you become incapacitated, and a “health care power of attorney” (or health care proxy), which names a person you authorize to make medical decisions on your behalf if you’re unable. You should also consider making a do-not-resuscitate order (DNR) as part of your advance directive, since advanced directives do little to protect you from unwanted emergency care like CPR. To create a DNR, ask your doctor to fi ll out a state appropriate form and sign it. Do-It-Yourself If you have a simple estate and an uncomplicated family situation, there are do-it-yourself resources that can help you create all these documents for very little money. Some options to consider include Quicken WillMaker & Trust 2020 software (available at Nolo.com) that costs $90 and works with Windows and Macs and is valid in every state except Louisiana. And LegalZoom.com, which off ers an estate plan with professional legal guidance with an independent attorney for $179. Get Help If, however, you want or need assistance or if you have a complicated fi nancial situation, blended family or have considerable assets, you should hire an attorney. An experienced lawyer can make sure you cover all your bases – especially when writing a will or living trust – which can help avoid family confusion and squabbles after you’re gone. Costs will vary depending on where you reside, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $500 and $2,000 for a basic estate plan that includes a will, power of attorney and advance directive. If you want your estate plan to include a living trust, that can run anywhere between $1,500 and $5,000. The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA.org) and the National Association of Estate Planners and Councils (NAEPC.org) are two good resources that have directories on their websites to help you fi nd someone in your area. If money is tight, check with your state’s bar association (see www.FindLegalHelp.org) to fi nd low-cost legal help in your area. Or call the Eldercare Locater at 800-677-1116 for a referral.

William Irving “Billy” Hazel It is with great sadness that we announce the sudden passing on Wednesday, March 4, 2020, of William “Billy” Irving Hazel aged 76. He died of complications from heart surgery in Del Ray Beach, Florida where he resided for the last few years. William was born on St. Patrick’s Day in 1943 in Revere to the late Arthur Irving Hazel and Mary Frances Hazel of Revere. Billy graduated from Revere High School in 1962. After graduation, he was drafted to Vietnam where he was stationed in Okinawa, Japan. Upon returning to the United States, his brother Jackie helped his younger brother get a job where he began his long career as a civil engineer with Massachusetts’s Public Works. He was a longtime member of the Winthrop Golf Club and Salem Country Club. Billy will be remembered as “Tootsie” by many of his closest friends for his colorful outfi ts and style. There was no color off the table when it came to his wardrobe, the brighter the better, including his socks and hats. He always looked dapper where-ever he went always showing up early to gatherings never wanting to miss the action. Billy started most conversations with a new joke which he loved to share to get friends and family laughing. He truly enjoyed his social life with close friends, his longtime companion Susan, golfing, weekly Saturday lunches in the North End with his compadres, and many trips to Saratoga and Florida Super Bowl celebrations. He was extremely proud of his children enjoying many holiday gatherings together with them. As his family grew, he enjoyed attending his grandchildren’s sporting events to cheer them on. The last few years, his health had started to decline, making it more diffi cult to stay active. He leaves behind his loving companion of many years, Susan Perry.

Page 22 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 13, 2020 DEMOCRATS | FROM PAGE 1 community Revere is, and for that, I believe that with Ed Markey in the Senate, Revere won’t just be one of the Commonwealth’s 351 cities and towns – our city will be among the forefront of his mind,” he added. City Council President Patrick Keefe, on the other hand, is among the state Democrats who have put their political capital down on Kennedy and given him a 6-8-point lead in recent polls. “It’s time to bring up the next generation of leaders,” said Keefe. “It’s a time for some fresh perspectives.” Keefe feels that Kennedy will be a stronger voice for Massachusetts. “I have no dislike for Markey, but after 40 years he’s still talking about some of the same social issues,” said Keefe, who added that Markey’s longstanding relationships developed during four decades in Washington will make it hard for him to break with the party line. “I know it’s diffi cult to have challenges in your party, but I think it’s important to keep the stronger player,” he added. Keefe acknowledged that Kennedy and Keefe are not far apart on most issues. “They are both well informed on health care, immigration and environmental issues,” he said. He did have reservations about Markey’s decision to jump on board with Congresswoman Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez ‘s green new deal, which he said is not passable legislation that sways a little too far left and is potentially dangerous for business. “But both have similar stands on the main issues, and I think they share a lot in common,” said Keefe. “The diff erence is one will be more able to accomplish their goals.” But for Serino, all high-profi le senate primaries are local. His support for Markey is deeply rooted in what the senator has done for Revere. “Senator Markey has a record of delivering for the City of Revere – he knows Revere. Regardless of where you stand on national politics, when it comes to supporting his constituents, he has always been there for Revere, fi rst when he was in the House, and for the last seven years as senator,” said Serino, who credited Markey with securing federal funds for the construction of the Wonderland Garage and the footbridge on Revere Beach, which transformed America’s First Public Beach. “I was proud to serve as a surrogate for Senator Ed Markey to the Caucus, and I am appreciative to the Senator for always being there for Revere,” he said.
