THE REVERE ADVOCATE - Friday, May 10, 2019 ~ Op-Ed ~ Page 3 Continuing to build a better Revere By Mayor Brian Arrigo ith tremendous pride in Revere, and excitement about our future, I am officially running for re-election as Mayor of our great city. Four years ago, we set off to prove that fresh, forwardthinking leadership would allow Revere to tap into its tremendous potential. We conducted a thorough, comprehensive review of the City’s finances, to make sure we are spending taxpayer dollars wisely. That audit process discovered nearly $2.2 million that had been withering in 86 different accounts that were inactive for years. We immediately put W that money to work for you. That was just the beginning. Since then, we have enacted sound financial management practices that have helped Revere achieve new levels of financial stability and its highest bond rating in history. Due to our careful control of the city’s finances, we were able to give Revere residents their first water and sewer rate decrease in 20 years – and we’ll be cutting rates again this year. We also enacted a real estate tax break for eligible seniors, supporting some of the most vulnerable members of our community. Over the last three years, John R. Correggio running for City Council we’ve made record investments in city services to improve your quality of life. We’ve given the DPW muchneeded new equipment and more workers, delivered over 16,000 heavy-duty trash containers to every residential property in the city, and increased funding to repair streets and sidewalks. We also made it easier and more transparent than ever to request a pothole repair or trash cleanup with our new 311 phone system and app. We’re rebuilding Revere’s commercial tax base and making our beachfront more active and dynamic. We’re in the midst of a record period of commercial investment in the city, with more to come when the redevelopment of Suffolk Downs breaks ground – bringing much-needed jobs, amenities, and over $50 million annually in revenue to invest in our residents. But the accomplishments of our first term are only just the beginning. With your help, we’ll make our city even stronger over the next four years.
