We love this city and care about its future. That’s why I was proud to stand with him along with so many friends and supporters back on Thursday, April 4th, when he announced his candidacy for Mayor. Our decision was only made after carefully discussing the process and considering what life would be like both during and after the election. As the wife of someone that has had the opportunity to serve as a full time Mayor, and having watched the tremendous workload and toll that managing a city can have on a family, it was a lot for me to absorb and finally agree to. I agreed to this decision because as I said before, we love Revere, and I know just how passionate Danny is about helping make people’s lives the best they can be. But the hard work in doing the job can pale in comparison to the nasty, negative, and personal natures associated with political campaigns. As the parents of two sons, and now proud grandparents to two (soon to be three!) granddaughters, negative personal attacks aff ect all of us. Danny has always remained positive and campaigned on issues that matter to residents. The politics of personal destruction should have no room in elections, and certainly no room in our great community. It only distracts voters from the conversations and discussions that will ultimately separate and distinguish candidates’ views, visions, and records of accomplishments. I am proud of the campaigns we have run together in the past and look forward to working with our dedicated committee of volunteers and supporters to communicate Danny’s vision for a city we can all be proud of. Sincerely, Jane Rizzo Stamp Out Hunger to be held on May 11 T he First Congregational Church of Revere Food Pantry has been serving food-insecure families of Revere, Chelsea, East Boston and other nearby communities since 1983. We are an emergency food pantry and distribute groceries to 300 to 500 families per month. We buy groceries at reduced cost from The Greater Boston Food Bank and rely heavily on food drives that several organizations run for us during the year. One of the major sources of food for our food pantry is the National Association of Letter Carriers Food Drive (Stamp Out Hunger) held this year on Saturday, May 11. Letter carriers pick up donated nonperishable food from customers along their route and deliver the food directly to our food pantry. Many families in our own community are finding it difficult to put food on the table and are turning to local food pantries such as ours. Food donations can also be dropped off directly at the church. Your donations to the Postal Food Drive will have positive impact on the fight against hunger here in Revere and our surrounding communities. Police arrest Chelsea man on suspicion of weapon and narcotics offenses A s a result of some excellent work by members of the Revere Police Department Narcotics/Gang Unit and Patrol Division, a Chelsea resident was arrested on Kimball Avenue in Revere on April 23. Mahdi Raoui, 21, was charged with numerous fi rearm-related charges as well as traffi cking cocaine. “Our main focus is ensuring the safety of our residents by taking a proactive approach to gun violence and street level narcotics distribution,” said Police Chief James Guido. “We continue to work each day to make our streets as safe as possible for the residents of Revere.” “I am proud of the work our men and women of the Revere Police Department do to keep our neighborhoods safe,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “Under the leadership of Chief Guido we have made tremendous progress protecting our residents while building trust in the community.” Beautifying Revere Rich Serino, Sr. is shown with son, Richie removing trash and debris collected along Asti Avenue during Beautify Revere Day on Saturday.
