CELEBRATING 30 YEARS AS REVERE’S LOCAL NEWS SOURCE Vol. 31, No.16 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday Marathon, running about community for Revere resident Anayo Osueke Fastest Revere runner in 126th Boston Marathon By Adam Swift A nayo Osueke is the fastest man in Revere, or at least he was on Marathon Monday. Osueke, 40, posted the fastest time of all Revere residents taking part in the 126th Boston Marathon, finishing the 26.2-mile course in just over three hours. While the time was down from Osueke’s time of around 2 hours and 50 minutes in the 2021 race, he said running the Boston Marathon is more about being part of the community than it is setting personal records. “There is a big social and community aspect to the Boston Marathon; it is the honor and the tradition that drives me to it,” said Osueke. “I’m a 40-something year old guy, so I’m not looking to go to the Olympics. There are a lot of people there talking about the history and the culture of the race, and there are a lot of charity runners. My interest in running is refl ective of that community bond.” Osueke said he first got involved in distance running 781-286-8500 Friday, April 22, 2022 June goal date set for selection of new high school leadership team By Adam Swift A DYNAMIC DUO: Kristopher Tong, left, ran alongside Revere resident Anayo Osueke in the Boston Marathon on Monday.

In March, current Principal Dr. John Perella and Deputy Principal Leah Tuckman submitted letters of resignation to Kelly. At Tuesday night’s School Committee meeting, Kelly gave an update on the search process to fi nd a new leadership team for the high school. The administration is undertaking the search with the assistance of UMass-Boston’s Collins Center, and will also include a screening committee comprised of parents and staff members. There have already been several public forums held with staff and parents where there has been input on what qualities parents and staff would like to see in new school leaders. Kelly said there will be additional forums and surveys to narrow down those qualities as the screening committee works to select fi nalists to interview by the end of May. Kelly said the goal is to have a principal candidate identifi ed in time to help with interviews for the deputy principal position in early June. During the initial forums with parents and staff , Kelly said, there were some key characteristics that were mentioned across the board. “They were looking for someone whose characteristics include empathy and fl exibility, somebody who has experience in competency-based learning, detracking and performance assessments,” said Kelly. “They want somebody who is a good communicator and responds to emails in a timely manner, who is hardworking and has good organizational skills, who understands the social and emotional needs of students and adults and knows the diff erence between a small issue and a big issue.” Some of the things mentioned specifically by parents include fi nding candidates who will enforce the dress code and a code of conduct, who will plan more community events and engage families and students in decision-making. “We have also engaged the Collins Center to help us with this search, and they are going to do a second round of surveys and focus groups with teachers, students and parents,” said Kelly. Kelly said those forums and surveys will take the feedback the administration has already received to help bring the search into focus. “Rather than just starting with the universe of options and characteristics and things like that, we’re starting with what people had already identifi ed as important, and then asking people to help us narrow that down,” said Kelly, “so when it gets to be time to do the search, we will know exactly what we are looking for.” Kelly said there have been several parent volunteers to serve on the search committee. She said the administration is looking for additional parent volunteers, as well as high school staff , to serve on the committee. “This is a very dense process that we are going through, but we are hoping when we make corrections for some of the time delays we have right now, that we would be fi nished with both appointments by the middle of June,” said Kelly.

Guilherme da Silveira, 29, of Revere, and Priscila Barbosa, 35, of Saugus, pleaded guilty to one count each of conspiracy to commit wire fraud. Barbosa also pleaded guilty to one count of aggravated identity theft. In May 2021, da Silveira and Barbosa were charged along with 17 codefendants with conspiracy to commit wire fraud by using stolen identities and falsifi ed documents to create fraudulent driver accounts for rent or sale to individuals who might not otherwise qualify to drive for the rideshare or delivery services. According to the allegations in the charging documents, the defendants used victims’ identifying information to apply for driver accounts with the rideshare and delivery companies – enabling them to pass the companies’ required background checks and create driver accounts in victims’ names. Allegedly, the defendants obtained victims’ names, dates of birth, driver’s license information and/ or Social Security numbers from coconspirators and other sources, including sites on the “darknet,” and the defendants and coconspirators also obtained driver’s license images directly from victims by photographing their licenses while completing an alcohol delivery through one of the service companies or while exchanging information with victims following vehicle accidents. Allegedly, some of the defendants or coconspirators intentionally caused the accidents to obtain license information. As a result of the scheme, IRS Forms 1099 were generated in victims’ names for income that conspirators earned from the rideshare and delivery companies. In connection with the scheme, Barbosa and da Silveira obtained driver’s licenses and Social Security numbers that they and their coconspirators procured from the “darknet” and other sources. They then used these stolen identifi ers to create and apply for numerous fraudulent accounts with the rideshare and delivery companies and supplied these identifi ers to other coconspirators who also created fraudulent accounts. To circumvent facial recognition technology utilized by rideshare and delivery companies as a security measure, Barbosa edited victims’ driver’s license images to display photos of the drivers renting or buying the fraudulent accounts. In total, Barbosa admitted to creating over 2,000 fraudulent rideshare accounts. Barbosa and da Silveira also advertised fraudulent driver accounts for rent and purchase to potential drivers, including via WhatsApp chat groups targeted to Brazilian nationals living in the United States. Barbosa and da Silveira managed the fraudulent accounts they rented out, specifi cally by collecting rental payments and troubleshooting issues that arose. Additionally, Barbosa and da Silveira used fraudulent driver accounts to exploit referral bonus programs off ered by the rideshare and delivery companies and used “bots” and GPS “spoofi ng” technology to increase the income earned from the companies. Barbosa and da Silveira each received over approximately $791,000 and $570,000, respectively, from the scheme in the form of rental payments from individuals driving under these accounts and payments from the companies generated with these accounts. U.S. Senior District Court Judge Mark L. Wolf scheduled sentencings for both defendants on Aug. 4, 2022. The charge of conspiracy to commit wire fraud provides for a sentence of up to 20 years in prison, three years of supervised release and a fi ne of $250,000 or twice the gross gain or loss from the off ense, whichever is greater. The charge of aggravated identity theft provides for a sentence of at least two years in prison to be served consecutive to any other sentence imposed. Sentences are imposed by a federal district court judge based on the U.S. Sentencing Guidelines and statutes which govern the determination of a sentence in a criminal case. Sixteen of the defendants have been arrested in connection with the conspiracy and three remain at large. Barbosa and da Silveira are the fi fth and sixth defendants, respectively, to plead guilty in the case.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2022 Page 3 School Committee raises high school attendance concerns By Adam Swift T he past several years of pandemic learning have had a big impact on school attendance, and some School Committee members are calling for a return to stricter attendance policies in the school. However, Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly said the district has to walk a fi ne line as the pandemic evolves between making sure students are in the classes they are supposed to be in and realizing the impact years of the pandemic learning have had on students. “I looked at the state law for attendance and basically it states that if you are out for eight days in a semester, that the attendance offi cer will literally bring you to court,” said School Committee Member John Kingston at Tuesday’s meeting. “While I am not looking so much for that, I am concerned about the number of students who are not attending school on a regular basis.” Kingston said he is especially concerned about attendance at the high school. He said that while there may have been some relaxation of attendance policies over the past year because of the COVID-19 pandemic, it is time for attention to attendance to once again come to the fore. “I think that going forward for next year, it needs to be stated loud and clear that students need to be in school … and students need to understand that coming to school and being at school is their job, so to speak,” said Kingston. Kelly commented on the legality of the school attendance policies, noting that while children need to be at school if they are under 16, over that age it becomes a bit more of a challenge. “I will also say that I don’t think that court is a place to go when kids are disengaged from school,” said Kelly. “I think the issue is diff erent from getting litigious. Usually, students who aren’t attending school have more social emotional problems that need to be addressed.” Kelly noted that the school system has increased its number of social workers and guidance counselors to help with those social emotional issues. “But we have not shied away from our responsibility of making sure our parents and families are aware when their kids are not attending school, and if children are under 16, we do still follow the state laws and work Billy Tse’s 441 Revere St., Revere (781) 286-2882 www.Billytserevere.com Hours: Sunday – Thursday, 11:30 AM – 9:30 PM; Friday & Saturday, 11:30 AM – 10:30 PM • Order Online: www.order.mealkeyway.com • Reservations: Billytserevere.com Sushi Chef David, formerly of Super Fusion in Boston with Billy Tse’s owner, Xiang Wang at the brand new Sushi bar.

Elle Baker, the city’s open space and environmental planner, said the Gibson Park Resiliency Study is the outgrowth of several years of work, including the Riverfront Master Plan and a coastal resiliency study. “Here in the Gibson Park resiliency project, we are able to tie resiliency into recreation as well,” said Baker. “This will be a great benefi t to the neighborhood as well as the community as a whole.” Through grant funding, Baker said, the city should soon be able to move into the fi nal design and permitting for the project. The highlights of the resiliency eff orts include stormwater storage under the planned multipurpose athletic fi eld, new salt marsh and a living shoreline along the edge of the park, and a walkway out over the new saltmarsh area so residents can enjoy the area. A raised seating area at the edge of the multipurpose fi eld will also act as a physical barrier between the edge of the fi eld and the start of the shoreline, according to John McAllister of McAllister Marine Engineering. “A big issue for everyone on the East Coast is rising sea levels, so we’re going to put in some space for the marsh to creep up,” said McAllister. “That way, it will continue to maintain protection as sea levels rise.” McAllister said the stormwater storage under the new fi eld will help alleviate some of the stormwater fl ooding issues in the Riverside neighborhood. In addition, the project calls for additional stormwater mitigation measures through the use of rain gardens and bioswales. The plans also call for a temporary natural berm protection against fl oodwaters on Mills Avenue. The Geocube sand dune design system would also encourage natural vegetation and provide about a decade of protection against rising sea levels as the city works on plans for a longer-term seawall solution along Mills Avenue. “Structurally, if it is vegetated and maintained, it could probably last 30 years, but in terms of sea level rise, we are looking at a 10- to 15-year solution,” said McAllister. Baker said the city has applied for funding for the design of a seawall, but she said the city knows it will take time to design, implement and fund the construction. Baker said the city will be applying for another round of grants to fund the permitting of the resiliency project and bring it to construction. McAllister said one more public forum on the Gibson Park project is planned for May.

However, Squire manager Peter DePesa updated the commission on steps he has taken since the fight on Feb. 28 and said those involved in the incident have been banned from the club. “Since that night, we have barred everyone that was there that night,” said DePesa. “It’s a group from Lynn, and we have all their IDs and names and information.” DePesa said the club uses a machine that scans licenses and takes photos of patrons entering the establishment. He added that the group did attempt to return to the club after the date of the fi ght, but the police detail barred their entry. In addition, DePesa said the club added more outdoor lighting in the parking lot and has worked with the police to make sure the club’s security personnel have more easily identifiable uniforms that show up better on surveillance video. “I also changed our soda glasses to plastic acrylic, so those are some small steps we have taken so, hopefully, nothing like this happens again,” said DePesa. DePesa said the incident stemmed from an incident between a boyfriend and girlfriend that quickly got out of control. License Commission Chair Robert Selevitch said DePesa and the security staff might want to come up with better contingency plans to make sure future incidents don’t escalate as quickly. “The fight breaks out and, obviously, spreads very quickly,” said Selevitch. “Once these things happen, it is very difficult to control, but it seems if you were able to deploy the security staff in such a way; for example, if you put one up on a riser so they are able to overlook the crowd and not through it, there might be a better opportunity of getting in front of things before they start getting out of control.” Selevitch also questioned why on the video the night of the incident it appeared that people were being let into the club at 1:28 a.m., two minutes before last call. DePesa said he would take a closer look at the video, but noted that people use the door to go outside and smoke, so it could have been people who were already in the club. The offi cial hearing into the incident was continued until the commission’s May meeting.

An especially touching moment on Marathon Monday took place at the fi nish line for Henry Richard, of Boston, who was running his first Boston Marathon. Richard, 20, is a college student and the brother of the late Martin Richard, who was killed in the 2013 Marathon bombing tragedy. At only eight years old, Martin was the youngest victim that fateful Marathon Monday. A younger sister, Jane, now 16 years old, lost a leg in the tragic bombing. Henry Richard carried both his late brother and sister with him during the race, with Martin's name etched in marker on his right arm and Jane's name emblazoned on his chest inside his shirt. Henry was also at the bombing scene on Patriot’s Day, 2013, just 11 years old, but emerged from the tragedy with just cuts and bruises. "I know Martin was with me during the race," Henry told reporters afterward, pledging to continue to run the Boston Marathon next year in #127, in 2023, and thereafter in his family's honor.

Baseball Pats improve to 5-2 this week By Greg Phipps B y winning fi ve of their fi rst seven contests, the Revere High School Patriots baseball team is off to an impressive beginning to 2022. This week, the Patriots scored two home victories: a close 3-2 triumph over Malden on Monday and a convincing 11-1 win against Everett Wednesday. The eff ort of starting pitcher Domenic Boudreau was the highlight of Monday's victory. He went the distance, allowing the two runs on just three hits and fanning 12. Meanwhile, the off ense mustered enough to bring home the W. Giancarlo Miro led the way with a hit and two runs driven in. Several players got into the act off ensively Revere’s Domenic Boudreau pitched a complete-game against Malden on Monday. He struck out 12 and allowed just three hits in a 3-2 victory. (Advocate photo by Greg Phipps) in Wednesday's defeat of the visiting Crimson Tide. Boudreau followed up his pitching performance two days earlier by smacking three hits and driving in three runs. Mike Popp added three RBI of his own with a base hit. Contributing two hits each were Brendan Sack (two RBI) and Ollie Svendson (RBI). Sal DeAngelis also fi nished with a hit and a run batted in. Starting pitcher Kyle Cummings hurled another strong game for Revere. He went the full six innings, striking out seven and giving up just one hit. Since losing the season opener to Lynn Classical (a close 3-1 aff air), the 5-2 Patriots have won fi ve of the last six games, including their last three in a row after dropping an 11-4 decision at Swampscott last week. Revere resumes its season next Monday, April 25, when it hosts Somerville (scheduled 4 p.m. start). The Patriots then have a rematch at Lynn Classical on Wednesday, April 27. It's a big game, as the Rams currently sit in fi rst place in the Greater Boston League with a 6-0 league mark. Classical was 8-1 overall as of midweek.

I encourage everyone to dispose of unneeded prescription medications now.” Drug overdose deaths have risen by 16 percent in the last year, claiming more than 290 lives every day. According to a report published by the Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration, most people who misused a prescription medication obtained the medicine from a family member or friend. The Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC) estimates that in the United States more than 106,000 people died as the result of a drug overdose in the 12-month period ending November 2021, marking the most drug-related deaths ever recorded, with opioid-related deaths accounting for 75 percent of all overdose deaths. For more than a decade, DEA’s National Prescription Drug Take Back Day has helped Americans easily rid their homes of unneeded medications – those that are old, unwanted or no longer needed – that too often become a gateway to addiction. Working in close partnership with local law enforcement, Take Back Day has removed more than 15 million pounds of medication from circulation since its inception. These eff orts are directly in line with DEA’s priority to combat the overdose epidemic in the United States. On April 30, DEA and its law enforcement partners will collect tablets, capsules, patches and other solid forms of prescription drugs.

Nahant Police render mental health services and aid to distressed person who barricaded themself in a home N ahant Police reported that the Department, assisted by specially trained mutual aid partners and state agencies, responded to a mental health call on Wednesday night during which a person barricaded themself inside a home and threatened self-harm. On Wednesday, April 20, at about 8:07 p.m., Nahant Police received a 9-1-1 call from a Sherman Avenue resident requesting that a visiting family member be removed. Upon arrival, police learned that the family member was barricaded inside the bathroom. Based on information provided at the scene, Nahant offi cers escorted other occupants out of the home safely. The family member exited the bathroom, but based on statements made to police a Nahant Police Offi cer deployed a Taser and pepper spray in an attempt to force the person to drop a weapon. The family member returned to the bathroom and refused to come out. A responding Swampscott Police Offi cer with experience in negotiations and high-risk situations spoke with that family member, and through further discussion successfully convinced the person to leave the home at about 10 p.m. Nahant Police Offi cers took the resident into protective custody. The family member will be connected with appropriate social service and mental health agencies. The Nahant Police Department wishes to thank the Lynn Police Department, Swampscott Police Department and the Massachusetts State Police STOP Team for their assistance in bringing this call to a successful conclusion.

There were no roll calls in the House last week. CLEAN ENERGY AND REDUCED EMISSIONS (S 2819) Senate 37-3 approved a bill that would expand the clean energy industry and reduce emissions from the transportation and building sectors across the state with the goal of reaching net-zero emissions by 2050. Provisions include providing creating a $100 million Clean Energy Investment Fund, $100 million to incentivize adoption of electric vehicles and $50 million to increase the number of electric vehicle charging stations; requiring all new vehicles sold to produce zero emissions beginning in 2035; requiring the MBTA to purchase or lease only zero-emission buses starting in 2028 and to convert its entire fl eet by 2040; increasing from $2,500 to $3,500 rebates for drivers who purchase electric vehicles; requiring the state to prepare a report on the estimated cost of converting school buses to zero-emission vehicles; and updating the procurement process for new off shore wind energy investments. “We know climate change is relentless, so we think Massachusetts needs to be relentless, too,” said Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), Senate chair of the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee. “No one’s around to give out ‘A’s’ for eff ort. What matters are results. [The bill] pushes back against global warming on multiple fronts, and with an emphasis on innovation and smart experimentation. It’s about thinking long-range but executing now, in the short term. It’s about problem-solving, confi dence and even optimism.” “Clean energy policy must be as realistic as it is bold,” said Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “After over 12 hours of debate, the Massachusetts State Senate voted on a bill that was bold, but not realistic. Although wellintended, the fi nal bill neglected undeniable realities for our economy, workforce and supply chain. My colleagues that voted no and I proposed a plan that would have boldly invested in a green future without putting too much strain on taxpayers, but this was rejected. That is why I voted against the fi nal version of the bill.” “The [bill] will help Massachusetts reach net-zero emissions by 2050 by paving the road to clean transportation, clean buildings and clean electric and thermal energy,” said Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton), chair of the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change. “It is an impressive achievement, one that should give every resident of the commonwealth hope about our ability to mitigate climate change.” “The bill as written signifi cantly increases demand for electricity, without corresponding cost controls, increases in supply and transmission capacity, or support for conservation measures,” said Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “These factors could well combine to cause economic harm and hardship, unsustainability and failure to meet the signifi cant carbon reduction requirements of the Global Warming Solutions Act and its successors and related regulations.” “Combating climate change requires an honest assessment of the challenges before us, and constant work to change the course we are on,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland). “I’m proud to say that the Senate has never shied away from either and that we continue to lead on taking action to combat climate change.” “Many states are trying to provide tax relief for consumers and small businesses due to the high cost of infl ation and states having extra money from over taxation,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. The Massachusetts State Senate is taking another approach by passing a multifaceted climate bill which aims to restrict energy supplies and options for consumers while mandating costly alternatives. The Senate Democrats passed a climate bill which will eliminate popular and reliable gas- and -diesel powered vehicles, joining the likes of California. This ban will become a significant problem for Massachusetts motorists when their options are arbitrarily taken away from them due to this bill.” The House has already approved a diff erent version of the proposal and the Senate version now goes to the House for consideration. The bills will likely end up in a conference committee to hammer out a compromise version. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes ENVIRONMENTAL JUSTICE (S 2819) Senate 11-28, rejected an amendment that would convene a Building Justice With Jobs Task Force to establish the Building Justice With Jobs Plan – a statewide strategy to retrofi t and electrify 1 million residential homes over the next ten years and to implement a comprehensive strategy that extends targeted fi nancial resources for homes located in environmental justice communities. Another key provision transfers $1 billion in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) resources to the Mass Clean Energy Center, a state agency dedicated to increase and accelerate the growth of the state’s clean energy sector, create jobs, deliver statewide environmental benefi ts and secure long-term economic growth. Earmarked funds include $350 million to carry out the Building Justice With Jobs Plan; $250 million to establish a clean energy investment institution or mechanism including a green bank; and $150 million for clean energy infrastructure. “I am disappointed that our chamber passed up an incredible opportunity to invest in our collective future and our statewide economy,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton). “According to the 2050 Decarbonization Roadmap, we need to retrofit and electrify 1 million homes over the next decade to comply with our updated emission reduction laws. By deploying $1 billion of our one-time federal ARPA resources - which revert if unused - this powerful statewide plan would have helped ensure equity, create thousands of new clean energy jobs and ultimately achieve the progress we need to decarbonize our commonwealth. It is imperative that the Legislature invest these federal ARPA funds, which come at no cost to the state, otherwise, the cost of inaction will simply be unaff ordable.” Amendment opponents said the amendment results in the Legislature giving too much power and authority to an unelected task force in place of the Legislature. They noted the amendment sets a bad precedent and might even be unconstitutional. Despite repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call, several senators did not respond to a request to comment on why they voted against the amendment including two key players in the drafting of the bill: Sen. Mike Barrett (D-Lexington), Senate chair of the Telecommunications, Utilities and Energy Committee and Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), the chair of the Senate Way and Means Committee. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards No DIVEST FOSSIL FUELS (S 2819) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would confi rm the authority of local retirement boards to divest their respective pension funds from investments in fossil fuel companies including those in sectors related to coal and consumable fuels; integrated oil and gas; and oil and gas exploration and production. “The need for a local divestment option bill arose in 2017 after a local vote to divest retirement funds from fossil fuel companies was ruled invalid, on the basis that they lacked the authority to do so,” said Sen. Marc Pacheco (D-Taunton). “Fossil fuel investments are extremely volatile and in direct confl ict with our continued progress toward a clean energy future. This amendment is a common-sense solution that empowers local communities to divest from fossil fuel companies by confi rming their right to cut ties with risky longterm commitments.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes ELECTRIC BUS ROLLOUT (S 2819) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment that would require the Massachusetts Department of Transportation to provide each of the state’s 15 regional transit authorities (RTAs) with assistance to create an electric bus rollout plan that includes a goal to transition to zero-emission buses. Amendment supporters, noting that 55 percent of Bay State residents are serviced by the state’s 15 RTAs, said these RTAs need this assistance in order to make progress and reach the goal of all zero-emission buses. “I proposed this amendment to support RTAs in electrifying their bus fl eets to ensure a sustainable and continued critical service to some of our most vulnerable groups including riders who are low-income, paratransit, older adults and essential workers,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Harriette Chandler (D-Worcester). (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes PRESERVE OPEN SPACE (S 2820) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a bill that would place into state law a current state policy regulation designed to ensure preservation of open space lands protected under Article 97 of the Massachusetts Constitution by ensuring there be no net loss of conservation land when a city, town or the state acquires conservation space and uses it to build on or develop. The land must be replaced with land of comparable acreage, location, fair market value and natural resource value. “I am pleased that the Senate has passed this legislation ensuring that all Massachusetts residents have access to public land and a healthy environment,” said Senate sponsor Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton). “Protecting public land is vitally important, and any loss has a direct impact on those who rely on open space lands. Throughout the COVID-19 shutdowns, public lands became an important part of everyday life for Massachusetts residents looking to exercise, spend socially distanced time with their loved ones and care for their mental and physical health during a time of great stress.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Sen. Lydia Edwards Yes HOME HEATING OIL SPILLS (S 2821) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House legislation that would require homeowner insurance policies sold in Massachusetts to include coverage for the cost of cleaning up accidental home heating oil spills. Current law only requires companies to make the insurance available to a homeowner as a separate rider. Supporters said that remediation and clean up can cost homeowners anywhere from $20,000 to $1 million. They noted that most homeowners do not have this insurance because it must be bought separately as a rider and most of them don’t even know it is available. “This legislation is a necessity for homeowners protection and peace of mind,” said sponsor Sen. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer). “The cost of remediation is expensive BEACON | SEE Page 15

It is only fair that the state takes actions to protect its citizens from this danger. I urge the House of Representatives to move quickly on this legislation, too. It is in the best interest of the residents of Massachusetts. This is the right move, and the time to act is now.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). 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..

When to Expect Your Social Security Checks Dear Savvy Senior, I am planning to retire and apply for my Social Security benefi ts in July. When can I expect my fi rst check, and is direct deposit my only option for receiving my monthly payment? Almost 62 Dear Almost, Generally, Social Security retirement benefi ts, as well as disability and survivor benefits, are paid in the month after the month they are due. So, if you want to start receiving your Social Security benefi ts in July, your July benefi ts will be distributed in August. The day of the month you receive your benefit payment, however, will depend on your birthdate. Here’s the schedule of when you can expect to receive your monthly check. If you were born on the: • 1st through the 10th : Expect your check to be deposited on the second Wednesday of each month. • 11th through the 20th : Expect your check to be deposited on the third Wednesday of each month. • 21st through the 31st : Expect your check to be deposited on the fourth Wednesday of each month. There are, however, a few exceptions to this schedule. For example, if the day your Social Security check is supposed to be deposited happens to be a holiday, your check will be deposited the previous day. And, if you are receiving both Social Security benefi ts and SSI payments, your Social Security check will be deposited on the third day of the month. You should also know that for Social Security benefi ciaries who started receiving benefits before 1997, their Social Security checks are paid on the third day of the month. To get a complete schedule of 2022 payment dates, visit SSA. gov/pubs/EN-05-10031-2022.pdf. Receiving Options There are two ways you can receive your Social Security benefits. Most beneficiaries choose direct deposit into their bank or credit union account because it’s simple, safe and secure. But if you don’t want this option, or you don’t have a bank account that your payments can be deposited into, you can get a Direct Express Debit MasterCard and have your benefi ts deposited into your card’s account. This card can then be used to get cash from ATMs, banks or credit union tellers, pay bills online and over the phone, make purchases at stores or locations that accept Debit MasterCard and get cash back when you make those purchases, and purchase money orders at the U.S. Post Offi ce. The money you spend or withdraw is automatically deducted from your account. You can check your balance any time by phone, online or at ATMs. There’s also no cost to sign up for the card, no monthly fees and no overdraft charges. There are, however, some small fees for optional services you need to be aware of, like multiple ATM withdrawals. Currently, cardholders get one free ATM withdrawal per month, but additional monthly withdrawals cost 85 cents each not including a surcharge if you use a non-network ATM. To learn more, visit USDirectExpress.com or call 800-333-1795. When and How to Apply The Social Security Administration recommends that you apply for benefi ts three months before you want to start receiving checks. This will give you enough time to make sure you have all the needed information to complete the application. See SSA.gov/hlp/isba/10/isba-checklist.pdf for a checklist of what you’ll need. You can apply for your Social Security benefi ts online at SSA. gov, by phone at 800-772-1213, or in person at your local Social Security offi ce – call fi rst to make an appointment.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, APRIL 22, 2022 Page 17 RUNNER | FROM Page 1 remains involved with a number of running groups, such as the Pioneers and the Trailblazers that have social outreach and community engagement components. “All of these running groups share one goal, which is using running as a vehicle and mechanism for uplifting people,” he said. It’s those bonds and community feeling that make marathon RAILLINE | FROM Page 1 duction goals as outlined in the Next Generation Roadmap legislation signed into law in March 2021,” the resolution continued. “And Whereas: The Town of Saugus has long missed out on rapid transit and is in dire need of affordable, reliable public transportation to alleviate traffi c and congestion; and Whereas: The way to solve the Commuter Rail’s existential crisis is to embrace the vision of a 21st century regional rail system that will make it more relevant for residents and riders to utilize while making their trips.” The resolution passed by Saugus selectmen requests the MBTA Board of Directors to include funding for the following projects in its Fiscal Year 2023– 2027 CIP: • Electrifi cation of the of the Newburyport-Rockport Line • The design and construction of high train platforms for step-free access onto commuter rail trains • The construction of infi ll stations in Everett, Revere, and Salem • Bus rapid transit from downtown Peabody to Salem Depot to integrate commuter rail ridership With passage of the resolution, Saugus joins the City of Lynn, which already passed an electrifi cation resolution. Similar resolutions are pending before the running something special for Osueke. This year’s race wasn’t without its struggles for the Revere runner, who ran the race alongside his friend, Kristopher Tong. Looking to approach his time from last year, Osueke noted that it is harder to train for a marathon in the winter months compared to last year, when the marathon was held in the fall and he was able to ramp up training in the summer. “I didn’t run as well as last year, Revere City Council and Chelsea City Council. Selec tmen considered the resolution after receiving correspondence from state Rep. Jessica A. Giannino (D-Revere), whose district includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus. Board of Selectmen Vice Chair Debra Panetta said that Rep. Giannino reached out to her for support, and that state Rep. Donald Wong (R-Saugus) also supports the resolution. “If electrifi ed, the price drops drastically to take the commuter rail which would increase the number of people who ride, decreasing our traffi c and congestion,” Panetta wrote in an email to The Saugus Advocate on Wednesday. “As you know, Saugus is a cut through from the North Shore to Boston. The current line runs from Gloucester to Boston. The federal government (Rep. Clark and Sen. Markey) just got funding to add a stop in Revere at Wonderland (existing stop),” Panetta said. “The electrification in addition to the new stop (2 separate projects) will be transformative for Revere but will impact traffi c in Saugus by taking cars off the road. This is also a big environmental impact because it would convert from fossil fuels to electric,” she said. Giannino seeks “a priority investment” in EJC and by mile 20, I had some trouble at Heartbreak Hill and my pace fell off significantly,” Osueke said. He added that the last miles of the race can often seem as long, if not longer, than the fi rst 20. Osueke said he was helped across the fi nish line. And while there were no personal records for this race, he said he still cherishes the race because of the support from the community and the greater meaning of what the Boston Marathon repRep. Giannino provided selectmen with a copy of a letter she wrote last month to the MBTA Fiscal and Management Control Board. That letter informed the control board that she was writing to testify in favor of “a priority investment in the Environmental Justice Corridor (EJC) of our regional rail system.” “This specifically includes the electrification of this element of the regional rail system and the introduction of Electric Multiple Unit (EMU) vehicles between Boston and Beverly, which would allow for transit frequency and transit fares on this segment of the Boston to Newburyport Line,” Giannino said. “This project would prove to be both economically and environmentally benefi cial for the residents of the Sixteenth Suffolk District as well as the surrounding districts. Firstly, upgrading the now obsolete train equipment to a cleaner and more reliable structure would significantly minimize equipment breakdowns, toxic emissions, and noise pollution; all of which are factors in the quality of life for the residents and frontline workers from the Greater Boston Area,” she said. “In addition, as climate change continues, it is common for fl ooding to occur on the tracks, under train bridges, and on land along the EJC.

Osueke has an impressive resume outside of his marathon accomplishments, and currently works as a quantitative analyst and AVP at State Street in Boston. A graduate of Morehouse College and Johns Hopkins University, Osueke has also worked for the International Monetary Fund and the World Bank Group in Washington, D.C. Closer to home, Osueke, who bought a home in Revere in es to the Newburyport/Rockport Line begin to take place, resilient infrastructure planning along the line will help to alleviate the consequences of changing climate,” she said. “As for the economic factors, current commuter rail fares are unaffordable for the residents of working-class communities like Revere, Lynn, Chelsea and Everett; and even with no capacity problems, that eff ectively eliminates the commuter rail as a practical transportation option. Equally important, if it were aff ordable, a regional rail system with transit frequency and transit fares would link both Boston and the North Shore to residential and job opportunities in each of the communities on the line. That in turn would support economic development, workforce development and aff ordable housing strategies in Revere certainly, but also in Chelsea, Everett, Lynn and beyond, where such opportunities are increasingly viable especially with a supportive transportation network.” In her letter, Giannino also called connections to Wonderland and Encore Boston Harbor “invaluable aspects of the EJC proposal that will reinforce and multiply access to opportunity.” “The casino has already proven to be a major driver of economic development in the region. This will be enhanced by increasing access to the com2020, was one of the initial appointments to serve on Revere’s Aff ordable Housing Trust Fund Board of Trustees, with Mayor Brian Arrigo praising his wealth of expertise and experience in fi nancial modeling and macroeconomic policy. “I really enjoy this whole community thing and I try to get involved in as many community causes as I can,” said Osueke. Next up on the marathon list for Osueke is the New York City Marathon in November. munities of the EJC,” she said. She continued, “Creating a transfer station for the Blue Line and the Newburyport/Rockport Line will open the door to numerous new economic and commuting opportunities for residents of the EJC. Lastly, in the case of Revere in particular, my community has none of the benefi ts of a regional rail since we do not have a regional rail station. More frequent rail service will also add capacity on a rail line that is frequently unavailable to inner belt communities at peak-periods since trains often arrive in Lynn already fully occupied. To a large extent, this investment would also serve the transportation purposes that would have been provided by the proposed extension of the Blue Line to Lynn at far less cost and for a far greater distance. “In conclusion, the investment in electrifi cation of the Boston to Newburyport rail line will both reduce the burdens and increase the benefi ts of the rail system for the urban communities through which it passes. That is the essence of the environmental justice that has long been denied to Revere and other urban communities, which are among the most economically challenged communities in the Boston Metropolitan Area. These are cities and towns that are still aff ordable and are remarkably diverse.” Hall Rentals Available Excellent rates Call 781-324-9570                                                    
