Have a Safe & Happy Mother’s Day! Vol. 31, No.18 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net School Committee approves school calendar for next year, sets start dates for future By Adam Swift S tudents and teachers in Revere will be going back to school a little later than they have for the past several years for the 2022-23 school year, but still before Labor Day. Last Wednesday afternoon, the School Committee rescinded an earlier vote it took in April approving an Aug. 24 start date for teachers with students heading to class the following day. Now, the fi rst day of school for teachers will be Monday, August 29, with students heading to class on Tuesday, August 30. In addition, the School Committee voted 4-2 to set the fi rst day of school for teachers as the Monday before Labor Day, with students starting on Tuesday moving forward. The committee also voted to have students go to class on Tuesday, Sept. 6, the day after Labor Day. Under the original calendar, there was no school scheduled for that day because of the state primary election. For about a decade, schools have been closed on election days because of safety concerns. “I think the Election Day this year is a little diff erent because there are no challengers in the primaries on Sept. 6 [for the state representative races],” said Tye. By holding school on Sept. 6, the district will be able to pick up a day in the schedule and plan on June 16 as the last day of school. School Committee Member Susan Gravellese said she was Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Friday, May 6, 2022 City gathers to Celebrate Ramadan CAROL TYE School Committeewoman hesitant about changing the schedule on Election Day. “I think it is good to be consistent with having election days with no school,” she said, adding that students and parents she’s spoken to like the consistency of the schedule with no school on the election days. Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly has stated that she is not in favor of the later start date for the school calendar. After voting on the school calendar for the 2022-23 school year, the committee then approved a motion by Member Stacey Bronsdon-Rizzo and then amended by Member John Kingston setting the Monday before Labor Day as the fi rst day of school for teachers and the Tuesday before as the first day for students moving forward. Gravellese and Tye voted against the motion.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2022 Page 3 Local businesses fined for selling tobacco to minors By Adam Swift E ight Revere businesses have been fi ned for selling tobacco products to minors. Under a new state law, the businesses have been fi ned $1,000 and will have their tobacco sales licenses suspended for three days later in May. The fi nes and suspensions are the new penalties for a fi rst off ense for selling to minors. The eight businesses that were found to sell to minors without asking for an ID by the Six City Tobacco Initiative are Shirley Ave. Variety at 65 Shirley Ave., Oak Island Convenience at 831 North Shore Rd., Convenience Mart at 270 Broadway, GasCo at 520 Broadway, Battambang Market at 120 Shirley Ave., ABC at 170 Revere St., Anthony’s Supermarket at 760 Broadway, and Joe’s Kwik Mart at 41 Lee Burbank Hwy. “Recently, I did a compliance check in Revere using a 17-yearold girl and a 16-year-old boy, and there were several violations found at the time where the young person, especially the boy, was not asked for any identifi cation,” said Bonny Carroll, director of the grant-funded Six City Tobacco Initiative. Carroll said the young people who take part in the tobacco operations are trained, and not allowed to lie about their age or if they have an ID if they are asked. Prior to the new state law, the maximum fi ne faced by retailers for selling tobacco to underage customers was $300. “Most retailers had gotten used to that,” said Carroll. Under the new law, the fi nes are much heftier, starting with the $1,000 and three-day suspension for fi rst off enses. Second violations carry a $2,000 fi ne and a seven-day suspension and third violations carry a $5,000 fi ne and a 30-day suspension. Battambang Market and GasBilly Tse’s 441 Revere St., Revere (781) 286-2882 www.Billytserevere.com Co unsuccessfully appealed their fi nes at the Thursday, April 28 meeting of the Board of Health. “The Board of Health is responsible under the new law to uphold the state’s decision on this and not lower the amount of the fi ne or the suspension,” said Carroll. “That means if the retailer can provide evidence that a protocol was not done correctly by me or my staff , then there would be a case for negotiating the lowering of the fi ne and/or the suspension. But unless that is the case, then the board is charged by the state to uphold that cease and desist order with that amount of the fi ne.” Board of Health Chair Drew Bunker said he understood that the fines are fairly severe for small businesses. “Obviously, it is a very hefty fi ne and we don’t want anyone to have to pay that or deal with that, but we are forced by the law in terms of the fi ne, and it’s frustrating, because obviously we understand you are all business owners and it is a diffi cult time,” said Bunker. “My worry is that if we don’t follow this law, then we can get in trouble with the District Attorney’s Offi ce.” Lauren Buck, the city’s public health director, said there is some reasoning for the seemingly punitive fines. “From a healthcare perspective, the rationale behind it is there are punitive or harsh laws because we want to prevent children and youth from picking up smoking because we know how harmful it is,” said Buck. “There is a statistic from the American Lung Association that says that every day, almost 2,500 children under 18 try their fi rst cigarette, and more than 400 of them will become new, regular daily smokers, and half of them will die from smoking. That’s the ‘why’ behind the sometimes punitivefeeling laws.” Bike to the Sea to meet May 11 A ll are welcome to come to a meeting of Bike to the Sea to hear about plans to connect the Northern Strand Community Trail to the Minuteman Bikeway.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2022 Page 5 ~ OP-ED ~ We’ve all gone mad… and just too far By Mayor Brian Arrigo “The last hopes of mankind, therefore, rest with us; and if it should be proclaimed, that our example had become an argument against the experiment, the knell of popular liberty would be sounded throughout the earth.” —U.S. Senator Daniel Webster at the dedication of the Bunker Hill Monument, June 17, 1825 I t seems our great American experiment of self-governing democracy is being tested once again. Generation after generation we have seen sanity prevail as great turmoil led our people to turn toward unity and away from division to solve big, history-making issues such as world wars, previous pandemics, and natural disasters. I think of instances locally – in 2014 when the tornado touched down ripping apart our city – while before my time as Mayor, I remember our community coming together to support each other, rebuild together and generally step up to help in any way their fellow neighbors in need. I’ve seen this during the early days of the pandemic when people needed supplies and food and our city needed volunteers – a network of neighbors gave generously of their time, skills and resources to help. When fi res erupt causing great tragedy and displacement, people stand together to help those most in need. This is the spirit of our community – this is the Revere I know and this is the Revere that time and time again supports each other. Like any family our city has each other’s back in time of need – we might argue among ourselves daily but when outside infl uences and uncertain times arise at our doorstep our spirit and resolve to protect one another from harm rises above all else. However, recently it seems we have lost our way – will it really take a tragic or near-catastrophic event to awaken us from a tunnel vision of the ‘you vs. me’ or the ‘us vs. them’ mentality that feeds on itself in extremist groups divided by perceived diff erences? In many instances, it’s taken these tragic or near-catastrophic events to awaken us from a tunnel vision of the ‘you vs. me’ or the ‘us vs. them' mentality that feeds on itself in extremist groups divided by perceived differences. Today, our generation and our city face new challenges; the introduction of social and digital media platforms has fed into this pack mentality – creating echo chambers that fuel the polarizing perspectives of the far-right and left sides of the political aisle. These tactics glorify destructive and violent behavior. They are intentional and they won’t stop until it is no longer fashionable to be extreme, or when the number of hits on an Instagram page isn’t rewarded by big money interests. What tragedy must occur to bring us back together? What war must we fi ght to right our collective spirit of oneness? What heinous act will we have to witness? What storm will we need to weather together to bring us back together? Or, perhaps, we can self-correct and choose to be more tolerant instead of having to suff er hardship to get there. That journey starts by all of us choosing to be more thoughtful with our words and actions. GONE MAD | SEE Page 15 Refinance NOW and SAVE!

HOUSE PASSES FY23 BUDGET, MAKES TARGETED INVESTMENTS TO SUPPORT FAMILIES Highlights include innovative investments in early education and care, universal school meals, and no-cost calls for incarcerated individuals BOSTON – The Massachusetts House of Representatives on Thursday passed its Fiscal Year 2023 (FY23) budget. This budget responsibly responds to the Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order? Do you have an update Will, Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney? If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 needs of residents and makes targeted investments to support families in the Commonwealth. Funded at $49.73 billion, the House’s FY23 budget continues its strong commitment to cities and towns, and includes signifi - cant investments in health care, education, housing, and workforce development, among other priorities. “The House budget responds to the economic challenges currently facing Massachusetts residents by balancing a focus on immediate needs such as workforce development, with a focus on long-term investments that are designed to grow our economy in a sustainable way,” said House Speaker Ronald J. Mariano (D-Quincy). “I want to thank Chairman Michlewitz for his indispensable guidance, as well as the Committee on Ways and Means and my colleagues in the House for their tireless hard work.” “This budget builds off the successes of the last few years and prioritizes our residents,” said Representative Aaron Michlewitz, Chair of the House Committee on Ways & Means (DBoston). “By reinvesting in the people of the Commonwealth we will continue to assist those recovering from this pandemic while making our economy stronger and more equitable for years to come. I want to thank Speaker Mariano for his leadership during this budget process, as well as my Vice-Chair Ann-Margaret Ferrante, and the entire membership for their thoughts and guidance over the last few months to make this a more successful and well-rounded budget.” “I want to thank Speaker Mariano, the Chairman of House Ways and Means, Aaron Michlewitz, and his team for their help and support in securing multiple earmarks for the Sixteenth Suff olk District," said Representative Jessica Ann Giannino (D-Revere). “State funding was so desperately needed by the communities within my district, especially after emerging from the economic damages caused by the pandemic, thus I am proud to announce that I was able to secure the following budget items in the House, which include: over one million dollars for State Police Troop A for directed patrols throughout Revere beach, $50,000 for the Robert J. Haas Health and Wellness Center, $50,000 for the City of Revere’s Food Systems Hub, and $25,000 for an ATV for the Town of Saugus Fire Department. I also want to thank my colleagues, Representatives Turco and Wong for their continued teamwork and support." “This year’s House budget was a win for the people of Winthrop and Revere,” said Representative Jeff rey Rosario Turco (DWinthrop). “With the help of my colleagues, especially Representative Giannino, we were able to secure a number of important budget items, including funding for: the Robert J. Haas Health and Wellness Center in Revere, initiatives to combat domestic violence in Winthrop and child safety programs in both Winthrop and Revere. I would also like to thank Speaker Mariano and Chairman Michlewitz for their leadership and guidance throughout the entire process.” The House FY23 budget expands services without raising taxes and is made possible due to strong revenue collections and increased federal reimbursement. Due to responsible fi nancial leadership, the state’s StabiliJEFFREY TURCO State Representative zation Fund is estimated to stand at $6.55 billion. The FY23 House budget includes an unprecedented $912 million to fund early education and care (EEC). Continuing its longstanding commitment to invest in the workforce, the budget includes a $70 million in rate increases for subsidized child care providers across the Commonwealth, representing a $50 million increase over FY22. It also includes a new initiative funded at $10 million to pay for child care for early educators. Following the recommendations issued by the Special Legislative Early Education and Care Economic Review Commission, the budget includes language requiring the Department of Early Education and Care to base reimbursement on enrollment rather than attendance. Early education and care funding initiatives include: • $16.5 million for Head Start grants; • $15 million for child care resource and referral agencies; • $10 million for EEC higher education provider opportunities; • $5 million to provide additional navigation support and outreach to families; • $3 million for early childhood mental health grants; and • $1 million for Neighborhood Villages to provide bilingual workforce training, instructional coaching, and COVID-19 testing. The FY23 House budget funds Unrestricted General Government Aid (UGGA) at $1.199 billion and Chapter 70 education funding at $5.988 billion, representing a $494 million increase over the FY22 budget and fully funding the second year of a sixyear implementation plan of the Student Opportunity Act (SOA) which was enacted in 2019 to support equitable funding for our most vulnerable students. BUDGET | SEE Page 7

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2022 Page 7 BUDGET | FROM Page 6 The budget also provides $110 million for a year-long extension of universal school meals, providing immediate relief to families by saving them up to $1,200 every year from reduced grocery expenditures, according to The Feed Kids Coalition. Additional education funding allocations include: • $440 million for Special Education Circuit Breaker; • $243 million for charter school aid, fully funding charter school reimbursement; • $77 million for regional transportation; and • $22 million for homeless student transportation. The House budget invests in higher education by allocating $653 million for the University of Massachusetts system, $337 million for community colleges, and $326 million for state universities. Building on Speaker Mariano’s priority to ensure Massachusetts residents from diverse backgrounds have access to meaningful educational opportunities the budget also includes a $25.5 million increase in scholarship funding over the last fi scal year for a new total of $156 million, and funds the community colleges SUCCESS Fund at $14 million and the STEM Starter Academies at $4.75 million. The budget also includes large investments in youth engagement programs, job training and workforce development, including: • $60 million for adult education to support English Language Learners and adults working towards their GED; • $28.3 million for the YouthWorks jobs program to fund over 6,000 summer and year-round jobs for youth in low-wage-earning and fi xed-income families; • $25.7 million for workforce support for K-12 schools; • $20.4 million for Career Technical Institutes to train workers and allow them to close skills gaps and meet the needs of businesses across the Commonwealth; • $17 million for the Workforce Competitiveness Trust Fund; • $15 million for One Stop Career Centers to connect individuals with training and employers; • $1 million investment in Learn to Earn; and • $1 million for the 1199SEIU Training and Upgrading Fund. Additionally, the House budget invests in programs across departments to support workforce equity in Massachusetts that help diverse communities and employers succeed. New initiatives include: • $20 million for a loan forgiveness program within the Department of Mental Health to support their workforce; • $15 million to support teachers of color, including $7.5 million for Tomorrow’s Teachers program to provide scholarships to people committed to teaching in public schools and $7.5 million for loan repayment for teachers of color; • $10 million for loan repayment FY22 and FY23 for home health aides and homemakers, and $1 million for the Nursing and Allied Health Workforce Development program. Additional investments include funding for programming such as the Elder Mental Health Outreach Teams, the Safe and Successful Youth Initiative Expansion, nine Elder Supportive Housing Sites, and the SHINE Program. The budget fully funds Transitional Aid to Families with Dependent Children at $343 million, as well as Emergency Aid to the Elderly, Disabled and Children at $137 million. The House budget refl ects the commitment to supporting health and behavioral health needs across the Commonwealth. Investments include: • $10 million to expand JESSICA GIANNINO State Representative and bonuses for the homeless shelter workforce that continue to provide critical services to the most vulnerable populations; and • $1 million for a public awareness campaign to ensure all communities can utilize these programs. The Commonwealth’s commitment to MassHealth remains one of the largest drivers of the budget. In FY23, the House is providing $18.40 billion to fully fund its caseload, which has increased as more residents became eligible during the pandemic. The House’s FY23 budget accurately refl ects this enrollment growth due to the federal extension of the public health emergency, showing the necessary increase in spending beyond what was included in the Governor’s budget proposal, while also factoring in the increased Federal Medical Assistance Percentage (FMAP) reimbursement levels. The budget prepares for the transition of individuals from MassHealth to the Health Connector when the federal public health emergency ends by providing $50 million for a Connector Care Pilot Program, which utilizes savings from the American Rescue Plan Act to fund subsidized health insurance plans for members that are between 300%-500% of the federal poverty level (FPL) for two years. It also invests $37 million to expand eligibility for the Medicare Savings Program to 250% FPL. The House FY23 budget invests in the human services workforce who provide services to our most vulnerable, including $230 million for Chapter 257 rates for health and human service workers, $40 million to continue higher rate add-ons and ensure a smaller wage cliff between emergency diversion boarding programs within the Department of Mental Health; • $188.6 million for the Bureau of Substance Addiction Services; • $12.5 million for behavioral health supports; and • $48.3 million for early intervention services, with dedicated funding to help its workforce recover from the pandemic. The House FY23 budget includes funding for housing and homelessness prevention, investing $150 million for the Massachusetts Rental Voucher Program (MRVP), $140 million for Residential Assistance for Families in Transition (RAFT), $100 million for homeless individuals, $92 million for housing authority subsidies, and $59.4 million for HomeBASE. The budget funds the Department of Developmental Services at $2.44 billion, aimed to support individuals with developmental disabilities and their families. It includes $278.4 million for Community Day and Work Programs, $90.6 million for respite services, $42.3 million in autism supports and services, $33.9 million in transportation services, $13.9 million for the autism division, and $1.8 million for supportive technology for individuals. To ensure every resident has equal access to the criminal justice system, the House’s FY23 budget includes a $824.6 million investment in the Trial Court, $39.5 million for the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation, and increases for Prisoners’ Legal Services and Mental Health Legal Advisors. The budget also upholds commitments made by the Legislature’s criminal justice reform, such as $11.3 million for community-based residential re-entry programs and establishes an Employment Services Division within Probation funded at $2.2 million. Other investments include: • $24 million for re-entry and recidivism reduction programs; • $5.8 million for fi ve new commissions created by the police reform law and a police reform reserve; • $11.6 million for the Municipal Police Training Council, which will provide standardized training to all sworn law enforcement offi cers; • $2 million for a new pilot program to provide rent subsidies to formerly incarcerated individuals returning to the community; • $27.5 million for probation community corrections centers; • $11.2 million for residential reentry programs; • $6 million for Emerging Adults Recidivism Reduction Grant Program; • $3.8 million for Demonstration Workforce; and • $3.6 million for the creation of two new After Incarceration Support Centers, modeled off the Hampden County Center For the first time ever, the House FY23 budget removes barriers to communication services for incarcerated persons and their loved ones. The Department of Correction (DOC), sheriff s and the Department of Youth Services (DYS) must provide phone calls free of charge to persons receiving and persons initiating phone calls and other services such as video or electronic communications, who are currently paying $14.4 million per year to communicate. The newly-created Communications Access Trust Fund includes $20 million in initial funding to make payments to DOC, sheriff s and DYS to cover the cost of providing these free services. The budget also eliminates probation and parole fees to reduce the burden on individuals during their re-entry process. Currently, individuals pay $50 per month for administrative supervised probation fees, $65 per month for probation supervision fees, and $80 per month in parole fees. The budget also continues the House’s focus on environmental and climate protection by investing $349.7 million for environmental services, which include funding increases for state parks, environmental protection, and fi sheries and wildlife. Additional measures include promoting electric vehicles and funding for environmental justice and climate adaptation and preparedness. Speaker Mariano and the House Ways & Means Committee introduced their FY23 budget on April 13, 2022, following a review of the Governor’s proposal and a series of budget hearings.

May 6, May 13, 2022 Alba as May 2022’s Public Servant of the Month. Chris works in the City of Revere’s Substance Use Disorder and Homelessness Initiatives Office (SUDHI) doing work with our most vulnerable residents. Every day Chris works with those facing substance use disorders and homelessness. With May being Mental Health Awareness Month, there was no better option for Public Servant of the Month than someone who every day helps those facing mental health challenges. A lifelong Revere resident, Chris Alba loves giving back to his community, and he is a clear choice for Public Servant of the Month. Q: What do you do and what is your day like? A: I do outreach in the City of Revere to some of our most vulnerable residents. Many people I meet with are struggling with mental health, at risk of losing housing and a variety of other diffi cult situations. I meet them where they are at, not just physically where they are at but in every sense of where they are at. My days are never really the same. I go out and see folks      Q: What’s the highlight of your career? A: I have been doing this work in the street, some people I already know some people I don’t, and I go introduce myself and explain what I do. Yesterday I spent the entire day with four diff erent people bringing them to and sitting with them during their medical appointments. Sometimes I work with first responders to meet someone who is need of mental health or housing services. I also work in the city following up with individuals who have had a substance use related medical call, most often an overdose but it can be a range of issues. Basically, I am the person they meet, connect with and I work to get their basic needs met and to support people who may have no support from anyone else. I reconnect people to care, the opposite of addiction is connection and that is my main role, to connect people. Q: What does Revere mean to you? A: This is my hometown; I was born and raised here. I still live here. I want this city to be a place that everyone is welcome to live regardless of what they are going through. People have a right to be here and a right to be part of this community. I am proud of this city for creating this role and other programs that help take responsibility for their residents and attempt to give everyone a better quality of life. for a long time in Revere and other communities. Now I get to come full circle back to the city I grew up in and to support my people. Q: What does public service mean to you; why do you choose this work? A: Public service means to be open minded, to make sure no one is excluded from services and the community. Public service means we serve the public not just the people who make us look good or people who may have a higher station in life. I choose this work because substance use and mental health has been a part of my entire life. My father was homeless in this city throughout my life and I want to make sure others going through that know they are loved and cared for. They aren’t throw aways. I have done outreach I feel for my entire life but it was just called looking for my dad. Now I have the opportunity to make a living, share my experience and love people. Remind people they matter no matter what. Q: If you can give advice to the future of Revere, what would it be? A: We all go through things in life; it’s a lot easier to get through things with help and support from others. They say a community can be judged by how it treats its most vulnerable folks. I would hope that the city of Revere and all of us that live here, grew up here, and are moving here can be kind to our most vulnerable folks, no matter what.

Baseball Pats bats go quiet on offense in recent losses By Greg Phipps A fter a huge win at Lynn Classical last week, the Revere High School baseball team was unable to carry the momentum of that victory into their next two games. The Patriots were edged in a 2-0 nonleague loss to Cambridge Rindge & Latin last Saturday at home and dropped a 6-1 decision at Lynn English in a Greater Boston League (GBL) tilt on Monday. Revere mustered just two hits in the loss to Cambridge. Patriots starting pitcher Chris Cassidy probably deserved a better fate, as he hurled six strong innings and didn’t allow an earned run. Cassidy surrendered four hits and walked four while striking out fi ve. Freshman reliever Brendan Sack fared well in his one inning of work by giving up no hits and fanning a batter. Both Revere hits came in the bottom of the second inning when Domenic Boudreau and Sal DeAngelis both singled. Revere shortstop Mike Popp reached down too late to tag out a Cambridge base runner during this steal of second base last Saturday. But the Patriots failed to score and Cambridge pitching pretty much kept them quiet the rest of the way. Boudreau was the lone Patriot Revere’s Sal DeAngelis followed through on this second inning base hit last Saturday against Cambridge. Revere pitcher Chris Cassidy put forth a strong outing in a losing cause against Cambridge last Saturday. Through six innings, he allowed no earned runs, gave up just four hits and fanned fi ve hitters. to sparkle off ensively in the loss at English. He swatted two hits and drove in Revere’s lone tally. The Patriots managed just four hits total. They defeated English by a 6-2 count when the two teams battled each other back in April. Revere, which was 6-5 overall on the season as of midweek, now has three losses in league play and is tied with English for third place in the GBL. The Patriots took on Medford in a league battle at home on Thursday, and then host Mystic Valley on Friday and Boston Latin on Monday, May 9. League statistics that were published at the end of April showed Mike Popp third in the GBL in hitting with a.417 average. Andrew Leone was close behind at.389 and Sack was hitting.353. Kyle Cummings was among the leaders in the pitching category. He stood at 3-0 with an impressive 1.38 earned run average.

Third-place winner Mia Waldron, 13, of Revere, crossed the fi nish line at 21:01 during Sunday’s John DiLiegro memorial race at A.C. Whelan School. GONE MAD | FROM Page 5 This runs contrary to everything happening at the national level, which at one time we could simply ignore and focus on issues close to the hearts of Reverians. At one time, the issues and mindsets on the national political stage had little in common with what was happening on Broadway and what people were thinking in our city. Those times are over now, as the bombardment of social media, and media in general, has woven national political tactics into the discourse of our local and municipal discussions. No longer can we shake our heads and ignore the spew of Washington, D.C., as a problem only “down there.” It is here in our city. It is on the doorsteps of our community. This might be new to us, but history shows that such venom is not new to the United States – and not even to Massachusetts. In 1851, our own U.S. Senator, Charles Sumner, was violently beaten on the fl oor of the U.S. Senate by South Carolina Senator Preston Brooks – in what became known nationwide as the “caning” of Sumner. The beating, the result of deep divisions among ideology leading to the Fifth-place winner Rick Gately, 51, of Revere, crossed the fi nish line at 22:14. Civil War. It is the distant past, but it feels like history could repeat itself any day now – like on January 6th in our Nation’s Capital – and even now, perhaps even in Revere City Hall? Neighbors, citizen volunteers and fellow residents were harassed and intentionally made to fear their participation in open forums meant to bring us closer together. Let me be very clear, the Human Rights Commission is not going anywhere, and their work is valued more now than ever as exhibited by a vocal few in attendance at their last meeting. We only need to look at the Civil War memorial next door to Revere City Hall to remember those from Revere (then North Chelsea) who were dragged from their comfortable homes to fi ght in a bloody war because so many like Brooks and Sumner could not fi nd civility and didn’t carefully consider their words and actions. It is time to stop demonizing each other – professing that everyone who disagrees with one’s viewpoint is wrong, or worse, ‘evil.’ The inciteful tactics, ranting and name-calling at City Hall with those that have diff erent opinions will not result in better democracy or a better City Revere resident Zack Carifio, 21, ran a 30:15 5K, followed by Erin Furey, 20, who ran a 30:17 5K. He placed 67th overall. of Revere. We have a duty to uphold the civility of the public square and to respect our neighbors around us, and at this moment there seems to be a real threat to that at our grassroots level of municipal government. Our city is changing – that is true – but our values and our shared interest in a better life for our children and next generation is not. Just how and what we do to get there is up for debate – but I assure you all this – the debate will be civil, and the behavior exhibited at the last HRC meeting will not be tolerated.

MASSHEALTH’S CALCULATION OF VALUE OF LIFE ESTATES M assHealth issued Eligibility Operations Memo Geri Damiano, second from right, danced around the room during last Tuesday’s Garden Party at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center. 19-12, “Calculating the value of a life estate and remainder interest” on August 15, 2019. Eff ective September 3, 2019, MassHealth no longer uses the IRS Table S interest rates (found in Book Aleph) along with interest rates published by the IRS pursuant to Internal Revenue Code Section 7520 when calculating the value of a life estate and remainder interest in real estate. MassHealth is now using Wildlife Control and Tree Service 24-Hour Service the Social Security Operations Manual (POMS) SI 01140.120 Life Estate and Remainder Interest Table. The result of this is that the value of a life estate interest as calculated by MassHealth is much higher than it otherwise would be under the old valuation method. Therefore, if a parent had deeded his or her home to the children many years ago with a reserved life estate and now wishes to sell the home, the amount of the net sales proceeds that will belong to the parent is a lot higher than it otherwise would be. Once the home is sold and the parent is now credited with the portion attributed to the life estate interest, those monies will then be considered countable assets when applying for MassHealth. If the parent immediately transfers those monies to his or her children, a new fi ve year look back period would commence as of the date of the transfer. As a result, much more money is at stake if the parent were to go into a nursing home prior to the expiration of that fi veyear period. If the real estate is a vacation home, if MassHealth utilizes the new tables for valuing the life estate in the vacation home, the parent may very well be over the asset limit due to the higher valuation. Using the old IRS Table S along with the Internal Revenue Code Section 7520 interest rates would result in much less exposure as far as countable assets are concerned. One option would be to rent out the vacation home at a profi t and take the position that the vacation home is necessary for self-support. In this case, the vacation home would not be considered a countable asset. The net income from the vacation home would have to be paid to the nursing home as part of the patient pay amount, but MassHealth would pay the bulk of the monthly nursing home cost if the application is otherwise approved. If the real estate in question is your principal residence and it is sold, under the MassHealth new calculation methodology, more of the gain will be allocated to the life tenant resulting in less or no capital gains tax due to the $250,000 capital gains tax exclusion (if single) or $500,000 (if married). If the children do not live in the home, they would not be able to take advantage of the capital gains tax exclusion. In that situation, having less of the sales proceeds attributed to the remaindermen (i.e. children) would end up saving them in taxes. The irrevocable trusts offers the best approach to protecting assets and assuring favorable tax results now that court cases have been decided against MassHealth in support of the use of these trusts as an estate planning/Medicaid planning strategy.

A House-Senate conference committee will eventually craft a plan that will be presented to the House and Senate for consideration and sent to the governor. Provisions include $18.4 billion REVERE PUBLIC SCHOOLS Public Hearing A public hearing for the conversion of SeaCoast to an innovation school will occur on May 17th at School Committee meeting. May 6, May 13, 2022 to fully fund MassHealth caseloads; $70 million in rate increases for subsidized child care providers; $3 million for early childhood mental health grants; $110 million for a year-long extension of universal school meals; $243 million for charter school aid; $60 million for adult education to support English Language Learners and adults working towards their GED; $15 million to support teachers of color, including $7.5 million for Tomorrow’s Teachers program to provide scholarships to people committed to teaching in public schools and $7.5 million for loan repayment for teachers of color; $188.6 million for the Bureau of Substance Addiction Service; and $653 million for the University of Massachusetts system. Another provision would require the Department of Correction (DOC), sheriff s and the Department of Youth Services (DYS) to provide phone calls free of charge to persons receiving and initiating phone calls and other services such as video or electronic communications, who are currently paying $14.4 million per year to communicate. The package also would outlaw child marriage of children under the age of 18 and empower minors currently in marriages to seek divorce or annulment on their own. “The House budget responds to the economic challenges currently facing Massachusetts residents by balancing a focus on immediate needs such as workforce development, with a focus on long-term investments that are designed to grow our economy in a sustainable way,” said House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). (A Yes” vote is for the budget.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes PRESCRIPTION REBATE FOR SENIORS OVER 67 (H 4700) House 28-127, rejected an amendment making seniors, aged 67 or older, who are at or below 300 percent of the federal poverty guidelines, eligible for a prescription drug rebate on their total outof-pocket expenses of up to $2,500 for the 12 months from July 1, 2022 until June 30, 2023. Amendment supporters said this rebate will help low-income seniors on fi xed incomes. They noted some of these seniors currently have to choose between paying for prescription drugs, food and heating costs. Amendment opponents said there are several bills being worked on that would help seniors pay for their prescription drugs. They said this proposal should be fi led as a separate bill in order to hold public hearings on the measure. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), sponsor of the amendment and Tom Stanley (D-Waltham), the main opponent of the amendment did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for the up to $2,500 rebate. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Jessica Giannino No FARM FUEL TAX REBATE (H 4700) House 29-127, rejected an amendment that would provide a tax rebate to farmers for the cost of fuel taxes paid for the operation of farm equipment from July 1, 2022 through December 31, 2022. Amendment supporters said the rebate will help hardworking farmers during this diffi cult economic time. They noted it will also help combat food shortages. Amendment opponents said this rebate is a new idea and should be fi led as a separate bill in order to hold public hearings on the measure. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment and Mark Cusack (D-Braintree), the main opponent of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. “Farmers, like everyone in this ‘Bidenfl ation’ economy, are struggling to survive, and with the state’s historic surplus revenue bonanza (aka, over-taxation), the state can certainly aff ord to lighten some of their burden easily,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Every small savings for producers will reduce the infl ated end-cost for beleaguered consumers.” (A “Yes” vote is for the rebate. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Jessica Giannino No REDUCE ESTATE/DEATH TAX (H 4700) House 30-126, rejected an amendment that would exempt the fi rst $2 million of the value of a person’s estate from the state’s estate/death tax that a person is required to pay following their death before distribution to any benefi - ciary. Under current law, only the fi rst $1 million is exempt. Under the current $1 million threshold and under the proposed $2 million threshold, the tax on anything over the threshold is a graduated one that ranges from 0.8 percent to 16 percent. This tax applies to the entire estate value, not just the portion above the threshold. Most Republicans are against any such tax and coined the name “death tax” to imply that the government taxes you even after you die. Most Democrats support the tax and call it an “estate tax” to imply that this tax is only paid by the wealthy. Amendment supporters said that in light of the rising value of houses, with the average home price more than $500,000, the $1 million threshold of this unfair regressive tax is too low and noted the federal tax exempts the fi rst $12 million. They noted that Massachusetts is losing many residents, who move to Florida and other states where this tax does not even exist. “Massachusetts has the most aggressive estate tax in the entire country,” said Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “This tax is very unpopular in every state that still has it and many states are eliminating it completely. The estate tax drives people out of the state and even President Joe Biden’s home state of Delaware recently repealed it completely. Only the Massachusetts Legislature would be willing to keep the country’s most aggressive estate tax, which hurts our elderly population the most.” Amendment opponents said that this proposed tax reduction is one of many that are included in a separate stand-alone piece of legislation fi led by Gov. Charlie Baker. They argued the amendment is premature and that the House should not act on this or any other tax reduction piecemeal here in the state budget but rather should wait until the Revenue Committee holds a public hearing on the governor’s package as a whole. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment and Mark Cusack (D-Braintree), the main opponent of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for exempting the fi rst $2 million of the value of a person’s estate from the state’s estate/ death tax. A “No” vote is against it) Rep. Jessica Giannino No REDUCE CAPITAL GAINS TAX FROM 12 PERCENT TO 5 PERCENT (H 4700) House 29-127,rejected an amendment that would reduce the short-term capital gains tax from 12 percent to fi ve percent. Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation said that anything that can help the investors in Massachusetts keep up with mounting infl ation is a positive step for the commonwealth’s economy, “Why should the capital gains or any tax imposed be charged at a higher rate than earned income, especially considering the multi-billions in historic revenue surpluses?” asked Ford. “The Massachusetts Legislature had a great opportunity to lower the capital gains tax, which taxes economic growth,” said Paul Craney, executive director of the Mass Fiscal Alliance. “Unfortunately they refused to lower it and in fact, their legislature’s ballot question this November hopes to increase the tax from 12 percent to 17 percent for some earners. It’s clear the Legislature wants to bring us back to Taxachusetts.” Amendment opponents again said that this amendment is premature and urged the House not to act on tax reductions one at a time but instead to wait and consider Gov. Baker’s comprehensive tax reduction package which might be voted on in a few weeks. Reps. Nick Boldyga (R-Southwick), the sponsor of the amendment and Rep. Mark Cusack (DBraintree), the main opponent of the amendment, did not respond to repeated requests from Beacon Hill Roll Call for a comment. (A “Yes” vote is for reducing capital gains tax from 12 percent to 5 percent. A “No” vote is against the reduction). Rep. Jessica Giannino No INCREASE TAX BREAK FOR SENIORS (H 4700) House 31-125, rejected an amendment that would increase by $1,005 (from $750 to $1,755) the maximum tax credit which seniors over 65 who qualify, can receive under the Senior Circuit Breaker Tax Credit Law. The law applies to seniors with homes valued at less than $884,000 and who earn $62,000 or less for a single individual who is not the head of a household; $78,000 for a head of household; and $93,000 for married couples fi ling a joint return. BEACON | SEE Page 19

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, MAY 6, 2022 Page 19 BEACON | FROM Page 18 Also to qualify, if you are a homeowner, your property tax payments, together with half of your water and sewer expense, must exceed 10 percent of your total Massachusetts income for the tax year. If you are a renter, 25 percent of your annual Massachusetts rent must exceed 10 percent of your total Massachusetts income for the tax year. Amendment supporters said this will help seniors on fi xed incomes who are having a diffi cult time as infl ation and the cost of food and gas soar. Amendment opponents again said that this amendment is premature and urged the House not to act on tax reductions one at a time but instead to wait and consider Gov. Baker’s comprehensive tax reduction package which might be voted on in a few weeks. (A “Yes” vote is for the increased tax credit of $1,005. A “No” vote is against it). Rep. Jessica Giannino No GAS TAX SUSPENSION (H 4700) House 32-124, rejected an amendment that would have suspended the state’s 24-cents-pergallon gas tax for 60 days. The measure also requires the state to use money from its General Fund to cover transportation costs, normally funded by the gas tax, such as road and bridge maintenance, during the two-month holiday. “The gasoline tax relief would help individuals with the rising costs of transportation, groceries, goods and services,” said sponsor Rep. Paul Frost (R-Auburn). “Democrats and Republicans came together in Connecticut to temporarily eliminate their state gasoline tax and there is no reason we can’t provide that immediate relief for the residents and businesses here in Massachusetts.” Rep. William Straus (D-Mattapoisett) said the tax is currently paid by distributors, not directly by consumers at the pump. He noted that the amendment does not assure that the tax cut will be passed along to consumers. “If Rep. Straus is claiming the savings won’t be passed down to the consumer than that can be addressed through the attorney general or Rep. Straus could’ve offered a further amendment to address the issue when it was on the fl oor instead of making it an excuse not to vote for it,” responded Frost. “Rep. Straus wasn’t interested in making it work for Massachusetts residents or businesses but rather chose to grandstand against much needed tax and cost relief.” (A “Yes” vote is for the suspension of the gas tax. A “No” vote is against the suspension). Rep. Jessica Giannino No REDUCE GAMING TAX (S 2844) Senate 4-35 rejected an amendment that would reduce from 20 percent to 10 percent the gaming excise tax for in-person betting and from 35 percent to 12.5 percent the tax for mobile bets and daily fantasy sports. “This amendment creates a much more practical accounting for taxes that refl ects the market realities that are present in the sports wagering industry across the nation,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “If you want to have a successful sports wagering business in the commonwealth then the tax rates in the bill have to be more realistic and practical.” Senate Ways and Means chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) urged senators to defeat the amendment. “One of the missions of this particular bill was to provide the best benefi t for the commonwealth’s citizens and taxpayers, not the best benefi t for the online gaming operators that want to work here.” (A Yes” vote is for the reduction. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards No PROHIBIT CREDIT CARD USE FOR SPORTS BETTING (S 2844) Senate 39-0, approved an amendment to a section of the sports betting bill that prohibits a credit card from being used to place bets. The amendment clarifi es that any use of credit, whether the credit card itself or some other third-party, is prohibited. Amendment supporters said that without the amendment, a consumer could link a credit card to an online payment system, such as PayPal, or use a credit card to purchase sports betting gift cards at retailers like 711, Walmart and various gas stations. “Prohibiting credit card use, particularly for those with a gambling addiction, will prevent consumers from going into insurmountable debt,” said amendment sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford). “If the commonwealth is going to allow this form of gambling, then we have a responsibility to protect the public by ensuring all forms of credit are not allowed. We cannot leave signifi cant consumer protections in the hands of a profit-driven industry, and this amendment ensures there are no credit loopholes for third-party payment methods like gift cards or online payment systems.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). 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 April 25-29, the House met for a total of 31 hours and 27 minutes and the Senate met for a total of nine hours and 42 minutes. Mon. April 25 House 11:01 a.m. to 8:54 p.m. Senate 11:16 a.m. to 1:42 p.m. Tues. April 26 House 11:00 a.m. to 7:43 p.m. No Senate session Wed.

Specialized Moving Services That Help Seniors Downsize and Relocate Dear Savvy Senior, Can you recommend any businesses or services that specialize in helping seniors downsize and relocate? I need to fi nd some help moving my mother from her four-bedroom home – where she’s lived for nearly 50 years – to an apartment near me. Overwhelmed Daughter Dear Overwhelmed, The process of downsizing and moving to a new home is a big job for anyone, but it can be especially overwhelming for seniors who are moving from a long-time residence fi lled with decade’s worth of stuff and a lifetime of memories. Fortunately, there’s a specialized service available today that can help make your mom’s move a lot easier for her, and for you. Senior Move Manager To help your mom get packed up and moved into her new home, you should consider hiring a “senior move manager.” These are trained organizers (they are not moving companies) who assist older people with the challenges of relocating and can minimize the stress of this major transition by doing most of the work for you. A senior move manager can help your mom pare down her belongings, decide what to take and what to dispose of, recommend charities for donations and help sell her unwanted items. They can even create a customized fl oor plan of her new home so your mom can visualize where her belongings will fi t. Senior move managers can also get estimates from moving companies, oversee the movers, arrange the move date, supervise the packing and unpacking and help set up her new home, have the house cleaned and just about anything you need related to her move. If you want to do some of the work yourself, you can pick and choose only the services you want. For example, you may only want a move manager’s help with downsizing and selling excess furniture and unwanted belongings but plan on doing the actual packing and moving yourself. The cost of working with a senior move manager will vary depending on where you live, the services you want and size of the move, but you can expect to pay somewhere between $60 and $125 per hour or more, not including the cost of movers. How to Find One To locate a senior move manager in your area, visit the National Association of Senior Move Managers website at NASMM.org or call 877-6062766. The NASMM is a trade association with an accreditation program that requires its members to abide by a strict code of ethics that ensures integrity. They currently have around 1,000 members across the U.S. You can also search at Caring Transitions (CaringTransitions.com), which is the largest senior relocation and transition services franchised company in the U.S. They currently have nearly 200 franchises throughout the country. But, before you hire one, be sure you ask for references from previous clients and check them, and check with the Better Business Bureau too. Also fi nd out how many moves they have actually managed and get a written list of services and fees. And make sure they’re insured and bonded. If you can’t find a senior move manager in your area, another option is to hire a certified professional organizer who specializes in downsizing and relocating. To fi nd one, check the National Association of Productivity and Organizing Professionals, which has a searchable database on its website at NAPO.net. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior. org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.
