Page 2 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021 Rotondo proposes funding City Historian position By Adam Swift O ne City Councillor wants to make sure Revere residents have a better grasp of the city’s rich history. Last Monday night, the City Council approved a motion by Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo requesting that the mayor look into the possibility of funding a City Historian position. According to his motion, the goal of the motion is to “foster knowledge and goodwill regarding the history of Revere; from its inception to who we are today. The historian would focus on but not limited to the social, economic, cultural, ethnic and historical changes through the years.” Rotondo said the idea came after he had a conversation with Revere Fire Chief Christopher Bright. “I think it would be great to illustrate where we were as a community, how we overcame the struggles that we went through and where we are going,” said Rotondo. “I think as we have a museum in the City of Revere, and now we have an arts council, what better way to augment those two particular institutions than with a City Historian if we have the ability to do so. Most people might not know that at one point Native Americans lived down at Oak Island, and that at one time we were part of Chelsea.” Much of that long history of the city could be communicated widely if there is a historian on the city roll, Rotondo said. Rotondo had support on the council to have the mayor fi nd possible funding for the position. “I believe a position such as a City Historian is imperative to keep our history relevant,” said Councillor-at-Large Steven Morabito. “There is so much history about our city and so much for so many to learn, including myself. I think a person such as City reports spike in opioid overdoses T he City of Revere issued an advisory regarding a reGEORGE ROTONDO Councillor-at-Large a City Historian would be great for preserving the history of the City of Revere.” City Council President Anthony Zambuto also signed on for the plan. “I’m all in favor of teaching our young people history, that’s for sure,” said Zambuto. “There is a lack of it in the school system.” DESE Office of Public School Monitoring to conduct required triennial review at Northeast Metro Tech WAKEFIELD – Superintendent David DiBarri reported that during the week of April 12 the Offi ce of Public School Monitoring (PSM) of the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education (DESE) will conduct a Tiered Focused Monitoring Review of Northeast Metropolitan Regional Vocational High School.

Areas of review related to special education include student assessments, determination of eligibility, the Individualized Education Program (IEP) Team process and IEP development and implementation. Areas of review related to civil rights include bullying, student discipline, physical restraint and equal access to school programs for all students. In addition to the onsite visit, parent outreach is an important part of the review process. The PSM review chairperson will send all parents of students with disabilities an online survey that focuses on key areas of their child’s special education program. Survey results will contribute to the development of a report. During the onsite review, PSM will interview the chairperson(s) of the district’s Special Education Parent Advisory Council (SEPAC). Other onsite activities may include interviews of district staff and administrators, reviews of student records, and onsite observations. Parents and other individuals may call PSM Chairperson Moses Nduati at 781-338-3707 to request a telephone interview. If an individual requires an accommodation, such as translation, to participate in an interview, the Department will make the necessary arrangements.

The Revere Fire Department and Police Department recently responded to fi ve overdoses in 12 hours. The city’s Substance Use Disorder Initiatives Office, Fire Department and Police Department encourage healthcare providers, treatment service providers and bystanders to exercise increased vigilance to promptly identify a suspected overdose and take appropriate action.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021 Page 3 City requests change in way it negotiates health care costs By Adam Swift T he City Council is setting the stage for what is likely to be a contentious battle over municipal health care costs. Last Monday night, the council accepted a letter from Richard Viscay, the city’s Chief Financial Offi cer, requesting the council take up a law that would allow the city to negotiate copays and deductibles for city health plans. In the letter, Viscay noted that there is no change in the plan being put forward at this time, but that the city is asking for a change in the process used in negotiations. The city is currently negotiating new contracts with all bargaining units in the city, with many of those contracts expiring at the end of the current fi scal year on June 20, Viscay stated. “As part of the bargaining process, we are examining all avenues to provide relief to the extraordinary costs of health insurance while ensuring that our employees and retirees receive quality health care,” Viscay stated in the letter. “However, the gotiate new health insurance benefi t plans for employees.” By adopting the laws, Viscay stated, the city could begin the process of adopting copay and deductibles, along with other cost-sharing health care plan features that are not higher than the Commonwealth’s Group Insurance Commission. “By adopting these laws, the RICHARD VISCAY Chief Financial Offi cer spending on health insurance for employees and retirees has historically grown much faster than revenues.” The city is exploring ways to control the costs of health care, which was budgeted at over $22 million for FY21, according to Viscay. One of those options, he stated, is to adopt Sections 21-23 of Chapter 32B of Massachusetts General Laws, which would allow the city to “engage in expedited bargaining to neCity Council is voting on the process used in negotiations only,” stated Viscay. “The City Council is not being asked to authorize any specifi c plan design changes or changes to contribution rates, as the City Council has no authority to approve the specifi c plan design off ered, including copayments and deductible amounts.” City Council President Anthony Zambuto moved the issue to a joint meeting of the council’s Ways and Means and Legislative Committees, which will be held on Monday, March 29 at 5 p.m. “This is too important of an issue to try and handle it in fi ve minutes here,” said Zambuto at Monday night’s regular City Council meeting.

Last Monday night, the council unanimously passed a motion presented by Councillors Joanne McKenna, Richard Serino and Jessica Ann Giannino asking the mayor to install a memorial plaque or marker in front of City Hall in memory of those who have lost their lives during the COVID-19 pandemic. “We are coming up on the anniversary of one year of the pandemic starting,” said McKenna. “We’ve lost more than 500,000 people in the past year, and we’ve lost a number of people in Revere, also.” McKenna said a memorial would be similar to the one in the city honoring those who died in the September 11 terrorist attacks. “As of today, those deaths [in Revere] stand at 159, and let’s hope with the vaccine and with JESSICA ANN GIANNINO Councillor-at-Large life getting a little back to normal that number stays at 159,” said Serino. “But I do think this would be a wonderful gesture to have going forward.” Arrigo said the city has already taken several steps to begin to honor those who died during the pandemic. “We’ve started a conversation with some Boston University students around ways to have a space to refl ect on how hard this has hit our community,” said Arrigo. “I heard a bunch of diff erent ideas from some really inspirational young folks who took the time to think about how to incorporate art and how to incorporate some level of civic engagement to show that our city was strong and was able to weather this storm together.” In addition, a vigil was scheduled for Tuesday, March 23 to remember those the city has RICHARD SERINO Ward 6 Councillor lost during the pandemic. Arrigo said the date was chosen because it represents the one-year anniversary of the fi rst Revere death from COVID-19. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo suggested that any memorial take into account the multiple cultures and languages of those aff ected by the pandemic in Revere. Councillor-at-Large Steven Morabito applauded the idea of a memorial, calling it a way for residents to know that the community has not forgotten about their loved ones. “In 1918, when they had the Spanish fl u, as they called it in those days, they never understood that we would have another pandemic, but we all know it happened,” said Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso. “I applaud the city for the manner in which we conducted ourselves.” RevereTV Spotlight T he RevereTV spring programming schedule launched this week!

Others may not have shared much time in our community, but they, too, comprised an essential piece of our social fabric.” With the vigil, which was held on the anniversary of the fi rst Revere death during the pandemic, Arrigo said, the goal was to commemorate the lives of those who have died in the hope that keeping them in everyone’s memories will keep people grounded in what makes everyone neighbors. Arrigo also took time to remember all the school nurses, fi rst responders and community members who have collaborated to keep residents safe over the past year. “As we advance upon brighter days, we hold the memories of those lost to COVID-19 close to our hearts,” said Arrigo. Many of the religious leaders spoke of the hardship the community has faced over the past year and off ered prayers of remembrance and healing. “Many of us have been touched by this pandemic, whether it was by losing a loved one, like a family member or a friend, or whether it was by losing a job and falling on hard times,” said Tarek Abdullah, Imam at the Association of Islamic Charitable Projects. “All of our community [is] facing grief Rev.

Here’s what you should know about balance problems, along with some different exercises that can help you improve it. Aging Aff ects Balance Balance is something most people take for granted until it’s challenged by a medical condition, medication or advanced age, which dulls our balance senses and causes most seniors to gradually become less stable on their feet over time. Poor balance can also lead to a vicious cycle of inactivity. You feel a little unsteady, so you curtail certain activities. If you’re inactive, you’re not challenging your balance systems or using your muscles. As a result, both balance and strength suff er. Simple acts like strolling through a grocery store or getting up from a chair become trickier. That shakes your confidence, so you become even less active. Balance Exercises If you have a balance problem that is not tied to illness, medication or some other specifi c cause, simple exercises can help preserve and improve your balance. Here are four exercises you can do that will help: • One-legged stands: Stand on one foot for 30 seconds, or longer, then switch to the other foot. In the beginning, you might want to have a wall or chair to hold on to. Or, for an extra challenge try closing your eyes, or standing on a throw pillow or Bosu ball (an infl ated rubber disc on a stable platform). • Heel-to-toe walking: Take 20 steps while looking straight ahead. Think of a sobriety test. • Standing up: Without using your hands, get up from a straight-backed chair and sit back down 10 to 20 times. This improves balance and leg strength. • Tai chi: Research has shown that the Asian practice of tai chi – which uses a combination of slow, graceful movements, meditation and deep breathing – can help reduce the risk of falls. For more information on different balance exercises you can do at home, there are a variety of balance and strength exercises and beginner Tai Chi DVDs you can purchase at Amazon.com or through Amazon Prime video. There are also senior fi tness programs, like SilverSneakers (silversneakers.com) and Silver&Fit (silverandfit.com), that off er online classes that can guide you through a series of exercises you can do at home during the pandemic. See a Doctor I do, however, want to emphasize that if you’ve already fallen, are noticeably dizzy or unsteady, or have a medical condition aff ecting your balance, you need to see a doctor. They might refer you to a physical therapist or to an appropriate balance-training class in your community. It’s also important to know that many medicines and medical conditions – from Parkinson’s disease to diabetes to inner-ear disorders – can affect balance.

CLIMATE CHANGE (S 9) House 145-14, Senate 39-1, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a lengthy climate change bill. A key section makes the state’s greenhouse gas emissions reduction goal net zero by 2050. The House and Senate both voted to adopt many of the amendments that Gov. Baker proposed to the original measure approved by the Legislature in February. Other provisions in the measure codify environmental justice provisions into Massachusetts law by defi ning environmental justice populations and providing new tools and protections for aff ected neighborhoods; provide $12 million in annual funding for the Massachusetts Clean Energy Center to create a pathway to the clean energy industry for environmental justice populations and minorityowned and women-owned busiTOWING | FROM Page 1 all plan is the potential purchase of the Riverside Boatworks site by the City of Revere for use as a community rowing and maritime center. The overlay district was passed following several Zoning Subcommittee meetings which added amendments to the original proposal ensuring greater transparency and neighborhood input on development of the G&J site, as well as pulling the former Mirage nightclub site from the overlay district borders. As was the case during the most recent Zoning Subcommittee meeting on the overlay nesses; require an additional 2,400 megawatts of off shore wind and increase the state’s total authorization to 5,600 megawatts; set appliance energy effi ciency standards for a variety of common appliances including plumbing, faucets, computers and commercial appliances and set benchmarks for the adoption of clean energy technologies including electric vehicles, charging stations, solar technology, energy storage and heat pumps. “History has been made today with the passage of the Next-Generation Roadmap bill,” said Rep. Tom Golden (D-Lowell). “The roadmap sets us on a strong course to net zero by 2050 and signifi cantly advances off shore wind, truly representing the best ideas from both chambers. Hats off to the House and the Senate for holding fi rm on ambitious emissions targets.” “Massachusetts leads the nation in reducing carbon emissions, of which there are some measures that I have supported,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman who was the only senator who voted against the measure. “However, this legislation, often described as ‘far reaching’ by the media and economic experts, will ensure the costs of building homes and commercial economic development dramatically increase, making us the most expensive state in the nation to live and do business. In this time of economic recovery from COVID-19, this is not only inadvisable; it is detrimental to the long-term interests of keeping Massachusetts aff ordable and prosperous.” “Today, the Legislature will take an important step toward a cleaner, healthier future by putting the climate bill back on the governor’s desk,” said Ben Hellerstein, State Director for Environment Massachusetts. “I applaud House and Senate leaders for preserving the key elements of last session’s bill, including energy effi ciency standards for appliances, expanded off shore wind procurements, and a requirement for at least 40 percent of Massachusetts’ electricity to come from renewable sources by 2030. If Gov. Baker vetoes the bill, I hope legislators move quickdistrict, which will allow for residential and retail development on the parcel which is currently zoned for light industrial, Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino voted the lone dissenting vote. Serino has expressed concerns about overdevelopment along the waterfront. While the sale of the G&J site has not happened yet, Redgate has been in negotiations to purchase the lot and build a mixeduse apartment complex on the site. During the meeting, Mayor Brian Arrigo thanked the council for its vote approving the overlay district. “I want to thank the members of the City Counly to override the veto and turn this bill into a law.” A new study by the Beacon Hill Institute says that legislation calling for a net-zero emissions policy by 2050 is flawed and unrealistic. “In this study, we conclude that this legislation is misconceived,” said co-author David Tuerck, president of the institute. “The ‘absolute zero’ approach embodied in the legislation would be economically ruinous. It would increase costs to the average Massachusetts household to unacceptable levels. If the commonwealth sought to reduce emissions by 100 percent, the price of a gallon of gasoline would have to rise above $14.10.” “The Next-Generation Climate Roadmap Act reflects the concerns of people of every age, from every part of the state,” tweeted Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington). “There is little doubt the legislation that passed today, if it becomes law, will cost taxpayers and businesses greatly in the future,” said Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance Executive Director Paul Craney. “The only questions that remain are just how much it will cost them and how ordinary, working-class families will be able to pay for it moving forward. Today’s legislation puts ideology ahead of common sense. It asks nearly every resident to make economic sacrifi ces in order to achieve unrealistic and ideologically driven climate goals.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes HELP BUSINESSES AND WORKERS (S 35) Senate 40-0, approved a bill that excludes Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) loans from being taxed by the state in 2020; excludes $10,200 of unemployment compensation received by an individual with a household income of less than 200 percent of the federal poverty level from gross income for tax purposes; and makes employees eligible for up to fi ve days of paid leave, at their regular rate of pay, capped at cil for their vision and their foresight on this, really what will be a transformational undertaking that we have down there,” said Arrigo. Arrigo specifically thanked Ward 5 Councillor John Powers for his advocacy for the ward. “I appreciate all the tremendous work you’ve done for the Pines neighborhood, for Riverside, for the Revere High portion of your district, for Oak Island and the entirety of your ward,” said Arrigo. While there was no discussion during the vote on the overlay district itself, earlier in the meeting, Powers used a point of personal privilege to address what $850 per week. Other provisions waive penalties on unemployment insurance taxes; freeze unemployment insurance rates paid by employers; create a mechanism ensuring all employees will be able to access 40 hours of paid sick time for any COVID-related issues, including testing positive, needing to quarantine or caring for a loved one; and extend the state’s tax fi ling deadline from April 15, 2021 to May 17, The day after this vote, the Department of Revenue (DOR), citing powers it says it can use when the U.S. president declares a disaster, unilaterally moved the Massachusetts tax fi ling deadline to conform with the postponed federal deadline of May 17. DOR said Massachusetts individual personal income tax returns and payments for the 2020 tax year that would have been due April 15 are now due May 17 under this automatic extension. Businesses would also face a new surcharge, in the form of an excise tax on employee wages, through December 2022 to help repay interest due in September on the federal loans. “In January, I declared that we must act quickly to provide our workers with COVID-19 Emergency Paid Sick Leave, and today the Senate has delivered on that promise,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “I am proud of the collaboration that brought about this agreement, which will provide needed relief for both businesses and workers … As we continue to recover from the COVID-19 emergency, these measures will provide stability to our economy, and keep workers safe.” “No worker should have to choose between staying home if they risk spreading COVID-19 and earning a paycheck to support their family, but unfortunately this impossible choice faces many workers who do not have adequate job-protected paid sick leave during this pandemic, especially low-income essential workers,” said Sen. Jason Lewis (D-Winchester). “As we slowly emerge from the he characterized as some misinformation being spread about the potential development of the G&J site by Redgate. “There is a lot of information out there and some of it is fi ctional and some of it is very disingenuous,” said Powers. Powers noted that so far there have been four neighborhood meetings with residents of the Point of Pines and Rice Avenue about the potential project. Powers said he has spoken to Revere Cable about broadcasting those meetings. Powers addressed some of the specifi c concerns that have been raised about the potential project, including the use of the private COVID-19 pandemic, I am proud of the collective action taken by the Senate and House to pass this comprehensive bill that strikes a balance to help businesses, workers, and jumpstart an equitable recovery for our commonwealth,” said Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “With more people getting vaccinated by the day, and our economy reopening, this bill will bring much needed relief to small businesses, keep our essential front-line workers safe, and target tax relief to lift up low-income families who lost jobs during this pandemic.” The House has approved a different version of the measure and the Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes TAKE-OUT AND DELIVERY OF ALCOHOL BEVERAGES (S 35) Senate 9-30, rejected an amendment that would extend the life of a current law that allows restaurants during the pandemic state of emergency to sell sealed containers of mixed drinks, beer and wine with take-out and delivery orders. Under the current law, restaurants would be able to continue doing this only until the governor lifts the ban. The amendment would extend the law for another two years after the governor lifts the ban. “A year into the state of emergency we are seeing glimmers of hope for economic recovery,” said Sen. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen), the amendment’s sponsor. “But businesses, particularly in the food and beverage sector and other segments of the hospitality industry, are still in survival mode. If we have any intention of helping them actually recover, we will continue to need programs like beverages to-go that provide our restaurants with much needed revenue streams now and in the future.” Amendment opponents said they support the alcohol takeout and delivery options for resBEACON | SEE Page 15 Rice Avenue beach by any tenants at a development, and the height of the proposed building. The councillor also pointed out what he said would be immense fi nancial benefi ts to the city. “We all know that site is currently a tow site and it is terrible looking and is generating $60,000 [a year] in taxes,” said Powers. “If that site is developed under the proposal which is before us, it would generate $1 million a year; that’s $940,000 more in tax revenue to the city.” That $1 million per year would off set some of the debt service when it comes time for the city to build and fi nance a new high school, Powers said.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021 Page 15 BEACON | FROM Page 14 taurants but noted that the emergency ban is still in eff ect and will likely be in eff ect for a long time. They argued there is no pressing need to extend the take-out and delivery options and noted the extension can be revisited sometime in the future. (A “Yes” vote is for extending the take-out and delivery of alcoholic beverages for two years following the end of the emergency. A “No” vote is against extending it). Sen. Joseph Boncore No PERMANENT CAP ON DELIVERY CHARGES (S 35) Senate 8-31, rejected an amendment that would permanently cap delivery fees by third parties like Grubhub, DoorDash and Uber Eats at 15 percent of the order price. The amendment would replace the current law which lifts the cap on the day the governor lifts the pandemic emergency. “We finally addressed the issue of capping third-party delivery fees to prevent price-gouging and pandemic-related windfalls in January of this year, ten months into the state of emergency as our restaurant industry was hanging on for dear life,” said sponsor Sen. DiZoglio. “We know that even when the state of emergency comes to an end and businesses are allowed to fully reopen that recovering from the losses incurred during this strange chapter of our history will take a very long time. We need to make permanent the cap on the amount that third-party delivery services are able to charge local restaurants at 15 percent of the purchase price of the online order. The need to regulate these fees will persist as delivery services continue to play an ever-increasing role in our lives post-pandemic. If we agree these delivery services should not be able to price gouge during the pandemic, we should agree they should not be able to price gouge once the state of emergency is lifted.” “I have been a strong supporter of measures to support the restaurant industry during the COVID-19 pandemic, including capping delivery fees charged to restaurants and allowing limited cocktails to go,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton). “These measures are currently in place and will remain in place throughout the duration of the governor’s declaration of a public health emergency … I did not believe the underlying bill—focused on time-sensitive tax relief to businesses and individuals—was the appropriate legislation to consider these important issues, and I look forward to considering them as separate legislation after the public hearing process.” (A “Yes” vote is for making the cap permanent. A “No” vote is against making it permanent.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No $5 MILLION FOR BUSINESS RELIEF FUND (S 35) Senate 8-31, rejected an amendment that would create and fund a $5 million Business Relief Fund to provide grants to struggling businesses aff ected by COVID-19 that thus far have not qualifi ed for grants because of a lack of operational and income history. The amendment requires that businesses must have been open at least 90 days before the pandemic state of emergency was declared and on the day it was declared. Amendment supporters explained that businesses that were not in business in 2019 don’t have income tax returns and other documentation from 2019 to compare to 2020 and show how their business has been adversely affected. “When people dedicate their lives and their savings to starting their own businesses, to contributing to the economy and to the strength of the workforce by hiring and training employees, only to be told that they haven’t been around long enough to receive the aid that is being off ered to established businesses, it is devastating,” said sponsor Sen. DiZoglio. “They deserve a chance to survive, to see a return on their investment, to contribute to the tax base and employ our family, friends, neighbors and fellow residents of the commonwealth. Every additional business that survives the pandemic in Massachusetts will enhance the longer-term health of our economy.” Amendment opponents said they are open to the idea of the relief fund but argued that the Senate should focus on the bill itself which off ers millions of dollars in relief to businesses rather than add amendments at this juncture. They said this idea can be revisited in the future. (A “Yes” vote is for the $5 million grant program. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the 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 1519, the House met for a total of four hours and 56 minutes while the Senate met for a total of seven hours and 44 minutes. Mon.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MARCH 26, 2021 Page 17 REPRESENTATIVE | FROM Page 9 cated by former Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo and following a Special Election victory, Turco is the Democratic Nominee for the March 30th General Election. “It is my pleasure to announce that the International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers Local 103 has endorsed Jeff Turco for State Representative in the 19th Suff olk District’s Special Election scheduled for Tuesday, March 30, 2021,” said Louis Antonellis, Local 103 Business Manager. “Jeff earned our endorsement for his long-standing commitment to the working men and women of the Commonwealth and especially for his support on the issues that concern the members of this union. We will urge all of our members and their families in Winthrop and Revere to vote and support your candidacy in this upcoming election.” The International Brotherhood of Electrical Workers, Local Union 103, located in Dorchester, represents electricians and technicians in the Greater Boston Area. IBEW’s mission is to provide developers in the Greater Boston area with the best trained, most efficient, safest electricians and telecommunications specialists, while fostering the union's values of economic fairness, equal opportunity and charitable giving in the communities they work, live and raise families in. “I’m extremely grateful to have the men and women of IBEW Local 103 in my corner as I campaign for State Representative of the 19th Suff olk District,” said Turco. “The electrical workers’ contributions to our community are just as important as their livelihoods. I will continue to do my part to support union workers and their families, just as they support ours.” About Jeff rey: As a seasoned attorney with local roots, Jeff rey Turco is the ideal blend of experience and professionalism, with the knowhow to be a strong leader for his community in these most uncertain times. In 2005, Jeffrey was the Special Sheriff and Superintendent of the Worcester County Sheriff ’s Offi ce and starting in 2006 was appointed a Special Assistant Attorney General representing the Agency. Since 2011, Jeff rey has owned and operated the Law Offi ce of Jeff rey Rosario Turco in Chelsea. Working for his community has always been in the forefront for Turco; for two years he served as Town Council President in Winthrop and a School Committee member. Jeff rey resides in Winthrop with his wife, the former Melissa Carbone, and their six children. 1.
