During Monday night’s Ways and Means Subcommittee meeting, the City Council discussed a motion by Councillorat-Large Marc Silvestri requesting Mayor Brian Arrigo to look into using federal American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to provide each emergency responder with a $500 bonus. That motion was later amended to up the bonus to $1,000 per emergency responder. “Included in the ARPA funds breakdown and regulations that Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 our local news source for o er 3 decades!

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2022 Page 3 Fiore’s fee request fails By Adam Swift T he three percent fee on credit cards to pay for city excise taxes continues to be a thorn in the side for Ward 5 Councillor Al Fiore. Earlier this year, Fiore introduced an order asking Mayor Brian Arrigo to appear before the City Council to discuss having the City of Revere cover the costs of the fees the credit card companies charge. The request was brought before the City Council’s Ways and Means Subcommittee on Monday night, but failed to pass muster with the subcommittee, and then failed in a vote before the full council later that night. “The ratepayers are getting hit with a three percent fee when they pay their taxes by a credit card, when for example, the pizza shop owner, when he sells a $15 pizza, he has to pay the three percent fee,” said Fiore. “As we’ve said all along, taxes going up, apartments being built, $250 million budget, and I know the argument from some of the council has been and will probably continue to be that this is going to be passed on to the other taxpayers. Again, that is an administration decision and the oversight of the council to make the necessary cuts in orASNGELO’ paying the bills. “However, for the vast majority of people, and I stand by this, who use a credit card do so because they choose to do so,” said Serino. “They do so because they would like to get the credit card points, or it’s easier than using a check or cash.” Serino said he doesn’t beAL FIORE Ward 5 Councillor der to put these things in eff ect.” Fiore said the people paying with credit cards with their high interest rates are likely the people who can’t aff ord to pay their taxes all at once. “In the interest of the public, we stand up, we make the necessary cuts and we give the people a break,” said Fiore. “I don’t think it is right that we are charging three percent to use a credit card, and I’m certainly willing to make the cuts, and I would implore my colleagues to stand with us on it.” Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino said he understands that some taxpayers use credit cards because they have no other means and are living paycheck to paycheck, and he said the city should be working with those people who have trouble Rizzo earns Registered Social Security Analyst credentials Anticipates serving existing and prospective clients, providing solid advice on Social Security optimization strategies tifi ed member of the National Association of Registered Social Security Analysts, the fi nancial industry’s leader in Social Security advisory, technology-driven education and training.

Dan can be reached at 781-629-7461 or at dan@rizzoinsurance.com. lieve the city should be paying the credit card companies’ fees at all. “At the end of the day, it’s a choice for most to use a credit card versus other means of payment,” said Serino. “I think that is actually fi scal irresponsibility to put the entire tax base on the hook because you are choosing to pay by credit card.” City Finance Director Richard Viscay said the city absorbed the credit card fees during the pandemic because it was diffi cult for people to get to City Hall. During the year and a half, Viscay said, the city paid about $700,000 in credit card fees. “Right now, if we budget half a million dollars for credit card fees, theoretically, that is a half a million dollars that is going to have to come out of some other pocket,” said Viscay.

Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/ Advocate.news.ma he City Council’s issues with the Overlook Ridge residential development off Route 1 and its promises to improve traffic near the development stretch back for decades. City Council Vice President Richard Serino is once again hoping to hold the property management company for Overlook responsible for past promises. Last Monday night, the City Council signed off on a letter drafted by Serino requesting representatives from Roseland Residential/Veris Residential appear before the City Council. Serino is specifically asking for an update on a 2019 Master Plan for transportation improvement projects to mitigate the traffi c on Salem Street and in North Revere. He said the council informally asked for an update in February, but has not heard back from the property management company. “As traffi c returns to pre-pandemic levels combined with the fact that more residential apartment buildings on the Malden side of the property have been constructed over these last two RICHARD SERINO City Council Vice President years, the time is now for Roseland/Veris to step-up to make good on these commitments to transportation improvements for the neighborhood,” Serino stated. “The residents of North Revere who live on Salem Street and on the abutting streets have seen a signifi cant increase in traffi c as Overlook Ridge has been built-out, yet they have received little tangible mitigation for this encroachment on their quality of life.” The traffic improvements that were in the works according to the 2019 plan include the elimination of the existing Lynn Street on-/off -ramps from Route 1 northbound; construction of a new on-/off -ramp system to Overlook Ridge Drive that provides a safer connection than the current Lynn Street ramps; and reconstruction/realignment of portions of the existing Overlook Ridge Drive to support Route 1 access and to complete related roadway improvements. In addition, Serino said the plans called for installation of a fully signalized intersection (with pedestrian safety improvements) at a relocated intersection of Overlook Ridge Drive and Salem Street; reconstruction/realignment of Salem Street in front of the Overlook Ridge site; and installation of new MBTA bus stops/shelters on Salem Street. “The traffic improvements described in your 2019 Master Plan are not only palatable, but are sorely needed today – not in two years from now or fi ve years from now, but as soon as possible,” Serino said. “There is a constant fl ow of vehicles entering and exiting Overlook Ridge ISSUES | SEE Page 16 tions and amendments detailing just how many and which councillors should get their portraits raised forced City

Revere High School 2022 baseball captains, shown from left to right: Max Doucette, Mike Popp and Chris Cassidy. By Greg Phipps C oming off a playoff appearance in the COVIDimpacted 2021 season, the Revere High School baseball team is looking to repeat that feat this spring. The one change this time around for the Patriots would be to advance in the tournament. Last year, Revere played just nine regular-season games and won six of them to earn a spot in the Div. 1 North tournament as a seventh seed. The Patriots ended up playing a fi rst-round contest at home, facing a lower-seeded Lexington team that was far better than its bracket position would indicate. The ensuing result was not what Revere hoped for, as the visiting Minutemen rolled to a 16-2 victory. The Patriots concluded 2021 at 6-4 overall. They now look forward to a full schedule of games this season, which begins with a home game against Greater Boston League (GBL) opponent Lynn Classical on Monday, April 4 (scheduled 4 p.m. start). Revere has been competing in several scrimmages, including a tilt last Saturday afternoon at Saugus, in preparation for the upcoming season. Five Patriots players made the league all-star team last D.P.W. spring. Three of those players are returning this year. Team captains Max Doucette, Mike Popp and Chris Cassidy are back to help lead Revere. Outfi elders Doucette and Popp were named all-conference players last year while infi elder Cassidy was chosen for a spot on the allstar team. Head Coach Mike Manning and his team are looking to get off to a positive start in the opener against Classical. From there, Revere will host Lynn English next Wednesday, April 6, and is then off until Monday, April 11, when it faces Medford on the road. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 Need a hall for your special event?

There were no roll calls in the House last week. SUSPEND THE 24-CENTS-PER GALLON GAS TAX UNTIL LABOR DAY (S 2776) Senate 11-29, rejected an amendment that would immediately suspend the state’s 24-centsper gallon gas tax until September 5. The measure also requires that the total amount of revenue lost as a result of the suspension be taken out of the General Fund and transferred to the Transportation Fund, where the gas tax currently goes. All three Republicans voted for the suspension. Eight of the Senate’s 37 Democrats joined the Republicans and voted for the suspension. “I sponsored this amendment Your Hometown News Delivered!

PO Box 490407, Everett, MA 02149 to provide for relief to motorists across the commonwealth,” said Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton), the sponsor of the amendment. “Hardworking families in Massachusetts need to see relief at the pumps, and it is our legislative responsibility to provide immediate assistance wherever we can. When you amortize 24 cents over the course of 16 gallons of gas per tank, several fi ll ups per week, over the course of six months to a year, it turns out to be between $600 to $1,200 worth of savings. For many, that’s a mortgage payment, rent, car payments or essential supplies for the family.” “There is a reason Gov. Baker, the House speaker and Senate president have been focused on other ways to provide relief to residents who are crunched under the impact of infl ation,” said Sen. Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfield), the chair of the Revenue Committee. “I am not convinced this step would result in lower prices at the pump given the behavior of oil companies. This is a source of revenue we need for our transportation investments [and the suspension] could negatively impact the state’s bond rating and more.” “Residents have shown great patience, hard work and determination to carry Massachusetts through the pandemic, and now is the time to reward all Bay Staters for not only keeping our economy afl oat, but thriving during these challenging times,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “Other states in the nation have suspended their gas tax or have plans to, including some of our New England neighbors. Massachusetts is in a strong fi nancial position to off er this relief at the gas pump and it’s time we act with the urgency needed to get this done.” “The proposed suspension of the gas tax is a political gimmick that is more likely to benefi t oil companies than consumers,” said Senate Ways and Means chair Sen. Mike Rodrigues (DWestport). “Further, the proposal would negatively impact our bond rating and hinder our ability to fi nance necessary transportation projects.” “The Senate is committed to providing real, targeted relief to Massachusetts taxpayers,” continued Rodrigues. “We approved $500 checks for 500,000 essential workers that are in the mail right now. We created child and dependent tax credits that provide $16 million per year to over 85,000 families. And we ensured that COVID relief funds, including $10,200 in unemployment assistance for low-income families, is not subject to income tax. We will continue to provide meaningful support to families across the commonwealth. However, a gas tax suspension is the wrong approach.” “With the Senate Democrats’ lopsided defeat of a reasonable suspension of the state gas tax, following its secret defeat by the Democrat House supermajority, it’s clear that the multi-billions in revenue surplus—at least in the eyes of most Democrat legislators—belongs to them and them alone,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Obviously now, they have no intention of returning or sharing any part of the revenue bonanza with the taxpayers who provided every cent of the historic surplus, despite the increasing hardships their constituents must endure from recordsetting infl ation and over-taxation.

A “No” vote is against suspension and favors keeping the gas tax in place). Sen. Lydia Edwards No $20 MILLION FOR COUNSELING VICTIMS OF CRIME (S 2776) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment providing $200 million for free counseling, advocacy and intervention services to victims of crime. Amendment supporters said the funding is necessary to forestall devastating federal program cuts and will be distributed to 161 programs statewide. “I’m tremendously heartened to see the Senate approve a strong supplemental budget with critical investments in much needed programs that will help my constituents continue to recover from the eff ects of the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton). “I am proud to secure victim assistance funding, which will help ensure that victim’s rights services in the Hampshire, Franklin, Worcester district are able to continue their critical work on behalf of children and survivors in our communities.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes DIVEST STATE’S PENSION FUND FROM RUSSIAN INVESTMENTS (S 2776) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would require the state’s pension funds to terminate investments with any company that has been sanctioned by the United States as a result of Russia’s invasion of Ukraine or is incorporated in Russia. The list would be researched and prepared by an independent, thirdparty research fi rm and would be updated by the fi rm four times per year. The pension fund would be required to divest itself of 50 percent of the companies within six months and 100 percent within a year. “We have the moral obligation here in the commonwealth of Massachusetts to take a stand and embrace any and all levers of opportunity to apply maximum pressure to a war criminal’s murderous regime, that is Vladimir Putin’s Russian Federation,” said sponsor Sen. Walter Timilty (DMilton). “It is crucial that we send a BEACON | SEE Page 15

Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes 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 2125, the House met for a total of 48 minutes and the Senate met for a total of fi ve hours and 59 minutes. Mon.

How to Get Help as an Elder Orphan Dear Savvy Senior, I need to fi nd someone honest and reliable to look after my estate, health and long-term care when I’m no longer able to do it myself. I’m a 67-year-old recent widow with no children and one sibling I rarely talk to. Any suggestions? Solo Ager Dear Solo, This is big concern for millions of older Americans who don’t have a spouse, children or other family they can depend on to watch out for their well-being. While there’s no one solution to this issue, here are some tips and resources that can help you plan ahead. Essential Documents If you haven’t already done so, your fi rst step, before choosing a reliable decision maker, is to prepare a basic estate plan of at least four essential legal documents. This will protect yourself and make sure you’re wishes are carried out if you become seriously ill or when you die. These essential documents include: a “durable power of attorney” that allows you to designate someone to handle your fi nancial matters if you become incapacitated; an “advanced health care directive” that includes a “living will” that tells your doctor what kind of care you want to receive if you become incapacitated, and a “health care power of attorney,” which names a person you authorize to make medical decisions on your behalf if you’re unable to; and a “will” that spells out how you’d like your property and assets distributed after you die. It also requires you to designate an “executor” to ensure your wishes are carried out. To prepare these documents your best option is to hire an attorney, which can cost anywhere between $500 and $2,000. Or, if you are interested in a do-ityourself plan, Quicken WillMaker & Trust 2022 ($199, Nolo.com) and LegalZoom.com ($179) are some top options. Choosing Decision Makers and Helpers Most people think first of naming a family member as their power of attorney for fi - nances and health care, or executor of their will. If, however, you don’t have someone to fi ll those roles, you may want to ask a trusted friend or associate but be sure to choose someone that’s organized and younger than you who will likely be around after you’re gone. Also be aware that if your choice of power of attorney or executor lives in another state, you’ll need to check your state’s law to see if it imposes any special requirements. If, however, you don’t have a friend or relative you feel comfortable with, you’ll need to hire someone who has experience with such matters. To fi nd a qualifi ed power of attorney or executor for your will, contact your bank, a local trust company or an estate planning attorney. If you need help locating a pro, the National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys (NAELA. org) is a great resource that provides online directory to help you fi nd someone in your area. Another resource that can help you manage and oversee your health and long-term care needs as they arise, and even act as your health care power of attorney, is an aging life care manager. These are trained professionals in the area of geriatric care who often have backgrounds in nursing or social work. To search for an expert near you, visit AgingLifeCare.org. Or, if you need help with bill paying and other fi nancial/insurance/tax chores there are professional daily money managers (see AADMM.com) that can help. Aging life care managers typically charge between $75 and $200 per hour, while hourly rates for daily money managers range between $75 and $150. It’s also important to note that if you don’t complete the aforementioned legal documents and you become incapacitated, a court judge may appoint a guardian to make decisions on your behalf. That means the care you receive may be totally diff erent from what you would have chosen for yourself. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

On August 1, 1943, he and others boarded a B-24D Liberator nicknamed “Satan’s Hell Cats” and traveled from the Libyan desert to Romania. However, the aircraft crashed after suff ering enemy anti-aircraft fi re during Operation TIDAL WAVE, the largest bombing mission against Axis refi neries and oil fi elds in Ploiesti, Romania. All nine crew members aboard the aircraft were killed in the crash. McMackin’s remains were not identifi ed and buried along with other Unknowns in the Hero Section of the Civilian and Military Cemetery in Bolovan, Ploiesti, Prahova, Romania.

These are our fi rst responders who are out there day in and day out not knowing what they are walking into; they didn’t take a day off when we didn’t know anything about this potential virus.”

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 1, 2022 Page 17 HONOR | FROM Page 4 Council President Gerry Visconti to send the motion to subcommittee for further discussion. Fiore’s original motion requested the installation of portraits of Ward 1 Councillor Rita Singer and Ward 3 Councillor Elvira “Vera” Curcio – both elected in 1975 – and Councillor-atLarge Linda Santos Rosa, the first woman councillor elected citywide in 1987. “I was fi rst elected here 31 years ago, and I looked at all my colleagues on the wall – Mayor Colella, Mayor Reinstein, Councillor DelGrosso – I served with them all and I’m wondering where all the women are,” said Fiore. “I didn’t know Vera Curcio, but she was quite FUNDING | FROM Page 1 ies of Revere, Lynn, Everett and Chelsea along Route 1.” Clark said that when the conversations began about new opportunities for community project funding, she went to the Mayor and other community leaders to ask them what investments could be made to really make a diff erence in the lives of residents. “The Wondera trailblazer. When I fi rst came into the Chamber, I didn’t realize I was serving with trailblazers like Linda Rosa and Rita Singer.” Fiore said he believes the photos of the women City Council trailblazers should be raised in recognition of Women’s History Month. Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky noted that there have been women elected to the council in other wards, but Fiore said he was trying to honor those who were elected first on the ward and at-large levels. Councillor-at-Large Marc Silvestri off ered a substitute motion to honor the youngest female elected to the council, current State Representative Jessiland multimodal connector was the resounding response,” said Clark. “This project has it all: the transit benefi ts that will modernize the Commonwealth’s commuter rail network, the regional connectivity, reduction in traffi c and congestion on our roadways, and in return, reductions in carbon emissions.” Arrigo noted that the city has been shaped by the rail line and Revere Beach throughout its history. “Thanks to our partners ca Ann Giannino. Councillor-atLarge Steven Morabito said the motion should be amended to include the fi rst female councillor from any ward in the city, in addition to the names put forward by Fiore and Silvestri. Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna pointed out that her colleagues might be stretching the honor a little too thin. “I think you should put Joanne McKenna as the oldest woman councillor and the only woman councillor. How about that?” she said. “No, I really think that we should just keep with the motion; I think it is a great motion and we’re just going to water it down.” Fiore said the intent of his motion is to recognize trailblazers at the state and federal levels, we’ve made tremendous strides in the last 10 years to bring the city of Revere – bring Wonderland, bring Waterfront Square – into the 21st century,” said Arrigo. “We’ve been able to do this while paying homage to our unique past and addressing key transportation and environmental justice issues. The $4 million in the Congressional omnibus towards the Wonderland multimodal station will get the and the fi rst people elected to the City Council. “I don’t want to vote against my own motion,” he said. “Everyone is well intended, but I’m in a tough spot now.” Novoselsky also noted that Cathy Penn was the fi rst female City Council President. After several more attempts at substitute and amended motions, Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe stated that if councillors want to introduce a substitute motion, they can easily review the City Council packets and submit them prior to the meetings on Monday or speak to the maker of the original motion. “The decorum of the council – it’s only March – I request that we all take a look at ourselves, ball rolling on a project that the city of Revere has dreamt about for several years.” State Senator Lydia Edwards said the project is a great opportunity that will create a regional traffi c plan that moves not just people but also the economy. State Representative Jessica Ann Giannino said that, as the representative and a lifelong resident of Revere, she is excited for the opportunities it will bring to the city. “Revere, along with other gateway and environmental justice communities have long faced the brunt of pollution and everything it brings to our city, traffic congestion and everything caused by daily transit,” said Giannino. “This multimodal transit facility will ease the burden of both factors and improve the quality of life for the people in Revere.” State Representative Jeff TurMayor Brian Arrigo shares his remarks as Congresswoman Katherine Clark and State Representative Jeff rey Turco look on.

I’m just asking that we have these conversations in advance so that – political banter is one thing – but we are just jumping on top of one another; this is nuts.” After Visconti called for a vote on Fiore’s original motion, Fiore requested that his motion be sent to committee. “Why don’t we decide who we want to recognize, because it was well intended,” said Fiore. Visconti agreed that the motion was well intended and agreed to move it to the Legislative Aff airs Subcommittee. is going to set up a few things; it’s going to help us reach our very aggressive climate change and carbon emissions standards that were set for our Commonwealth, but it’s also going to set up new possibilities for young Ed Markeys and young Jeff Turcos to come here to Revere Beach not just from Revere, but from Lynn and from Gloucester and from Rockport and from Newburyport. I think it is such an exciting opportunity for the people of this area.”                     WASTE REMOVAL & BUILDING MAINTENANCE • Landscaping, Lawn Care, Mulching • Yard Waste & Rubbish Removal • Interior & Exterior Demolition (Old Decks, Fences, Pools, Sheds, etc.) • Appliance and Metal Pick-up • Construction and Estate Cleanouts • Pick-up Truck Load of Trash starting at $169 • Carpentry LICENSED & INSURED Call for FREE ESTIMATES!    KITCHEN CABINETS To Look Like New State Representative Jessica Giannino shared her remarks regarding the recent announcements that $4 million in federal funding was allocated for the Wonderland multimodal project.
