Ron is a lifelong resident of Revere and has lived in the Point of Pines his entire life. Ron is married to his wife of 30 years Marilyn and has fi ve children. They are also very proud of their fi ve beautiful grandchildren. Ron is proud to say his family now has 4 generations in Revere. Ron has served his community in many ways, most notably at the Point of Pines Yacht Club where he was elected Commodore for 9 years and in fact served in many other elected positions over 20 years. Change happens everywhere, but the rate of change and the detriments that come with change such as stress on our schools, public safety, traffic, and parking are beginning to overwhelm the neighborhoods of Ward 5. In fact, nowhere have the residents and is running for City Council because he believes that the residents should have a Councilor and a voice that speaks for them. Ward 5 voted for change in RON CLARK these changes impacted residents more than in Ward 5. Ron is a strong supporter of getting the Point of Pines fi re station under construction as soon as possible to ensure safety and fast response time for our Ward 5 residents. Ron believes in listening to November. Ron believes now is the time to continue that change. It is time for Ron Clark to bring his experience and his knowledge to ALL of Ward 5 where he will work towards bringing his constituents the highest quality of representation they deserve. Ron is a graduate of Northeast Regional Vocational School and has been employed as a Technology Manager for major corporations for over 40 years. Using these skills that he has learned, Ron, will create and maintain strong communication with the residents of Ward 5 and will make certain that they stay informed about projects and programs that will impact them directly. ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Civil Discourse in the Era of Polarization By Sal Giarratani A few weeks past Mayor Brian Arrigo wrote a powerful commentary on the pages of the Revere Advocate. His piece titled “We’ve all gone mad...and just too far,” spoke truth to power. As Arrigo stated, “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?” I agree with the mayor that America’s experiment of self-governance is being tested once again. Living in this age of polarization, the stakes are too high to maintain neutrality. Thanks to the echo chambers out there in our midst being fed by a media less intent on giving us news and facts and more intent on both dividing and pitting us against each other. Our elected offi cials in both parties act out against each other and all we get is a maddening crowd. There is a lot of sound and fury but most of it is meaningless. President James Madison, the Father of the Constitution, once observed that if men were angels there would be little need for government, which is why we have a constitution to follow. We are far lesser than angels and we see this fact every day. Lately, in the City of Revere, we see this national passion play at work. Civil discourse has given way to an explosion of passion. It has been seen recently at both City Council meetings and those of the Human Rights Commission. We need to listen more than talk. We need to maintain respect for opposing views. We should be able to listen and respond without going to the nuclear option. Words and actions must be respectful. We are all one people. We are all looking out for what is best for our nation, our state and here in this city, for ReGONEMAD | SEE Page 16 Prices subject to change Ask about our Heating Oil Conditioner! FLEET

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Attendance policy continues to be a City Council issue Visconti: ‘We do not need to police ourselves’ By Adam Swift T he battle over City Council attendance continued at Monday night’s meeting. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo presented a motion that some councillors claimed was a retaliatory strike against a motion made last month seeking to dock the pay of councillors who don’t show up to meetings. In May, Ward 3 Councillor Anthony Cogliandro and Councillor-at-Large Marc Silvestri presented a motion seeking to cut councillors’ pay by some percentage if they are absent from a meeting without a good excuse. Rizzo, who took exception to that motion in May, presented his own motion on Monday night requesting the City Council consider overhauling its pay structure and handing out a fl at $100 fee for each meeting councillors attend. “I think at the last meeting I had stated that we don’t work for each other – we get elected by the voters,” said Rizzo, “so if the sole mission here is to compensate councillors by the meetings they attend and not the job they do with phone calls they return … personally, I think this is a slippery slope. In all the years that I’ve sat on the council, I have not heard a councillor indirectly go after other councillors for their attendance; that’s insane to me.” Rizzo said the councillors put themselves before the voters every two years, and that the voters should be given enough credit to determine who is doing their job and who is not. Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe sought to take a middle ground in the conversation, stating he understood where Rizzo was coming from in making his motion, as well as the frustrations voiced by Cogliandro and Silvestri in making their original motion. “I think we are probably going down a slippery slope when we start this fi ning each other and what not,” said Keefe.    Attorneys at Law                   14 Norwood St., Everett, MA 02149 Phone: (617) 387-4900 Fax: (617) 381-1755  John Mackey, Esq. * Katherine M.

Rizzo said his was not a tit-fortat motion, but an eff ort to create transparency and start a discussion on attendance and pay issues. Silvestri said his original motion was not aimed at any particular person on the council. “We don’t make millions of dollars up here – that’s a fact – we probably don’t get paid enough,” said Silvestri. “But we put ourselves on the ballot and we get elected by the people and we should show up here every chance we get.” Cogliandro said he agrees that the original motion was not an indirect attack on anyone, but a measure aimed at making the council as a whole more accountable. “We are not employees of the city; we are elected offi cials … the voters are the ones who put us here,” said Rizzo. “It is not up to you to count absences and who is not here and why you don’t have a quorum.” City Council President Gerry Visconti said the motion would GERRY VISCONTI City Council President MARC SILVESTRI Councillor-at-Large be put into the Legislative Affairs Subcommittee, and he added that he hopes the council could get down to more important business. “We are elected by the residents of the city, and we do not police ourselves,” said Visconti. “It is not the council president’s job to call the Treasurer’s Offi ce and say I’m going to deduct someone $50 because he did not attend a meeting and calculate it out.” Visconti also noted that the job of a councillor extends well outside the City Council Chambers in dealing with constituent issues. “I think we should work rather than nitpicking each other,” Visconti said. “I think we should work collaboratively and get some work done that has to be done in the city.” Work Completed on Pedestrian Bridge at Suffolk Downs Station BOSTON – As part of the MBTA’s Capital Program, the MBTA’s Capital Delivery team has completed critical work that took                                                       place over 18 consecutive days on the Blue Line to repair the Suff olk Down pedestrian bridge and accomplish other Blue Line maintenance work. During this time, shuttle buses replaced Blue Line service from May 22 through June 8 between Wonderland and Orient Heights stations, and regular Blue Line service resumed at the start of service on June 9. Closed since late 2021, the Suff olk Downs pedestrian bridge will fully reopen to the public this summer. “As we continue to make these kinds of important investments in MBTA infrastructure, I want to thank our riders for their continued patience during this surge in repair work on the Suffolk Downs pedestrian bridge and maintenance work along the Blue Line,” said MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak. “We know these kinds of service suspensions can be frustrating, but they provide additional time to expedite important safety and service improvements for our riders.” Due to the pedestrian bridge’s position in the immediate vicinity of the Blue Line’s overhead wires, the work to demolish the bride deck would not have been possible during regular overnight hours. This 18day suspension in service was a valuable work window that allowed crews uninterrupted access to the area in order to safely perform demolition work on the Suff olk Downs pedestrian bridge, which would otherwise have required additional service shutdowns. This important work to repair and reopen the Suff olk Down pedestrian bridge also needed to be proactively accomplished prior to the beginning of MassDOT’s Sumner Tunnel Restoration project, which begins June 10. If the MBTA had not completed this now, the pedestrian bridge would likely not have been repaired for another two years until the Sumner Tunnel reopened seven days a week in winter 2023. While the Suff olk Downs pedestrian bridge remains closed at this time as fi nal repairs are made to the concrete ramps BRIDGE | SEE Page 9

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Page 5 City Council focuses concern on school safety following recent school tragedy By Adam Swift S chool security was on the forefront of the minds of several city councillors on Monday night. Three councillors presented separate motions regarding safety in the schools in the wake of the school shooting in Uvalde, Texas, in May. Councillor-at-Large Steven Morabito’s motion asked that Mayor Brian Arrigo add a line item in the Fiscal Year 2023 budget for any school safety measures the School Committee deems necessary. “Although we do not oversee the School Committee and the school system, we do as a City Council have the responsibility of approving the school budget as a whole each year,” said Morabito. “Also, we can make recommendations to the mayor to provide funds for schools. We also have the responsibility of acting in the best interest of the city, and being that these schools are in our city, we have every right to be cautious and take precautions.” Morabito said the schools should be a beacon of safety for students, staff and teachers. “I feel it is imperative that we request the mayor to add a line item to the budget to support our colleagues on the School Committee and the superintendent … by providing the funds as the School Committee deems Committee after a recent Safety and Security Subcommittee meeting, Cogliandro asked that his motion be tabled. However, he did note that there could be improvements made to security training and measures at the schools. Ward 4 Councillor Patrick STEVEN MORABITO Councillor-at-Large necessary, based on a feasibility study,” said Morabito. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo commended Morabito’s motion, but recommended that the city’s state legislative delegation look into adding money in the state budget for school safety measures. “I think an issue like this where it aff ects everyone [in the state], it might be worth asking the state delegation if they can make an additional appropriation for school safety,” said Rizzo. Ward 3 Councillor Anthony Cogliandro presented a motion asking the mayor, School Committee and City Council to hold a joint meeting to discuss security measures. After speaking to members of the School Keefe presented a motion asking the mayor to have the Police Department update the City Council and School Committee on security measures. Keefe said it is important for councillors and other elected offi cials to refl ect on how the Texas school shooting and other national tragedies impact students and families locally in Revere. “I don’t want to grandstand in the light of another tragic school shooting, but I have received a number of calls and messages from concerned parents, and I also go home, and like many of you, have to see your family and your children and you have to answer to them,” said Keefe. Keefe said the recent School Committee Subcommittee meeting addressed a number of questions and concerns, and he added that he has full confi - dence in the city’s School and Police Departments. But Keefe said he would still like to hold a joint meeting to make sure the city is taking advantage of all the resources it can when it comes to school safety and security.

Tompkins, members the Department and participants in the Department’s Community Works Program joined State Representative Jessica Giannino, who invited the group out to Revere to personally thank them for their work in helping to clean up and beautify sites across the City of Revere. The Community Works Program (CWP), which is made up of volunteers from the Department’s in-custody population who must meet strict classifi cation standards to be selected for the program, helps participants to gain work experience and build upon valuable skills learned through vocational and job training that can help to remove the barriers to employment that they often face upon their return to society. Under the constant supervision of Deputy Sheriffs, who also provide on-site training to participants, CWP members work on assignments that include: cleaning vacant lots, beautifying roadway intersections, painting street lamps, boarding and securing abandoned homes, shoveling walkways for senior citizen housing, and more. Many of the assignments are made through requests to the Department for assistance from municipal governments, non–profi ts and various divisions within the Commonwealth of Massachusetts. “I am so grateful for the partnership that I have with Suff olk County Sheriff Steve Tompkins,” said State Representative Giannino. “Every day, I receive requests from the residents of Revere and Chelsea regarding litState Representative Jessica Giannino stands with Suff olk County Sheriff Steven W.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Page 7 Paula Sepulveda is June 2022’s Public Servant of the Month M ayor Brian Arrigo announced that June 2022’s Public Servant of the Month is Paula Sepulveda. Paula has worked in the Revere Department of Public Health since 2020, where she administered vaccination clinics and worked to help our residents throughout the pandemic. A Shirley Avenue resident for more than 10 years, Paula is raising her son, Enzo, in Revere. Paula is an incredible asset to the residents of Revere who goes above and beyond her duties to help her community, making her a clear choice for June’s Public Servant of the Month. Q: What do you do? What was your career prior to City Hall? A: I am the Administrative Assistant for Health and Human Services, where I work with the Director of Public Health to help coordinate and administer vaccination clinics and other events in the City of Revere. I also work as a clerk for both the Board of Health and the Human Rights Commission. Before working at Revere City Hall, I worked at the East Boston Neighborhood Health Center where I was a care coordinator for kids with disabilities. Q: What does Revere mean to you? A: I always joke that Revere chose me, I didn’t choose Revere. My parents immigrated to the United States when I was 8 years old – we started living in East Boston and eventually made it to Revere. I’ve been living on Shirley Ave. since I was 14, and Shirley Ave. will always be home to me. My son goes to the Revere Public Schools and I’m happy to say Revere is where I’m going to stay! Q: What was it like working in the public health sector during the pandemic? A: It’s strange – I started this job in the middle of the pandemic, so it almost feels like a blur. Coming from East Boston Neighborhood Health Center, I was just going from one public health space to another. In a lot of ways, I feel like I was privileged to be able to leave the home and work – but sometimes I was so involved in my work that I forgot what was really happening around me. At the time, there was this adrenaline rush among those in the public health sector – especially at the very start of the pandemic. Sometimes it was hard to really take it all in and understand the weight of what we were experiencing. Q: At the peak of the pandemic, what did your weeks look like? A: Probably the hardest point personally for me during the pandemic was the start of vaccination clinics. All of a sudden, thousands of residents were eligible for the vaccine, and it really came down to us to make a decision on where to host these clinics and how to make it as streamlined as possible. It was a lot of work – working through the weekends and coordinating all the appointments. But what I love the most about this job is that there is not one day that’s the same – every day we’re faced with a new challenge and there really couldn’t be a job description for what we do. We just love what we do and do everything we can to help the community. Q: What does public service mean to you? A: Public service is a natural human experience – we see people in need, and we help them. It’s what you do because you love it and enjoy it, not just because it’s your job. Before working at City Hall, I had never stepped into the building, as bad as that sounds. There was a huge separation between the community I lived in (Shirley Ave.) and City Hall for years, but a lot of that has changed in recent years. I almost wish I felt a connection to it sooner. What I hope to teach my son and others in the community is that it’s never too late to get involved and make a diff erence, and getting involved locally is one of the best ways to create change in your community.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Page 9 Baseball Pats conclude fine season with playoff loss to Beverly against the Panthers, who ended up losing, 11-2, to 10th-seeded Braintree in the Round of 32. Along with accumulating 13 total victories, Revere went 11-3 in the GBL to earn second place in the league. It was just one game behind 12-2 Lynn Classical. The Patriots split their two games against the Rams during the regular season. Revere’s Sal DeAngelis smacked one of his three base hits in last Friday’s Division I preliminaryround game at Beverly. By Greg Phipps H ead Coach Mike Manning and his 2022 Revere High School baseball team can take plenty of positives from a campaign that saw the Patriots win 13 games and fi nish second in the Greater Boston League (GBL). The Patriots entered last Friday’s Division I preliminary-round game at Beverly on a roll, having won six of their fi nal seven regular-season contests. Unfortunately, 42nd-seeded Revere couldn’t keep the momentum going and dropped an 8-1 decision to No. 23 Beverly. Revere had its chances to score but left the bases loaded on two occasions, once in the fi fth inning and once in the seventh. Meanwhile, the host Panthers reached Patriot pitching for eight runs as Beverly pitching held Revere to just one run. Ollie Svendsen, Mike Popp and Kyle Cummings all saw work on the mound for the Patriots. The Revere off ense was led by Sal DeAngelis, who stroked three hits in three at-bats. Popp belted a hit and drove in Revere’s lone BRIDGE | FROM Page 4 and pathways that lead to and from the pedestrian bridge, the pedestrian bridge is anticipated to fully reopen to riders this summer. Following extensive planning and coordination with other internal departments, the unencumbered access to the Blue Line tracks and stations in this area for 18 days also allowed the MBTA to accomplish other maintenance activities, including: • Upgrading a tremendous amount of utilities at Wonderland station, including work on electrical, communications, and fi re safety systems. This work would have taken about one year to complete if it had been accomplished during overnight hours; Revere’s Chris Cassidy attempted a bunt against Beverly last Friday. run, and Domenic Boudreau added a hit in the defeat. The game was out of character to what the Patriots had done over their fi nal sevengame stretch to end the regular season. "Despite the outcome, I’m proud of the way [the team] battled today, as they did all season long," Manning said after the game. Revere had outscored the opposition 47-18 during those last seven regularseason contests. But the offense couldn’t break through • Upgrading the plaza and sidewalks at Beachmont station; • Replacing lighting at Revere Beach and Wonderland stations; • Performing signal repairs and replacement work; • Upgrading the track at Revere Beach station; • Performing tactile repairs at Suff olk Downs station; • Performing tree trimming and vegetation management within this area of the Blue Line corridor; and • Repairing and replacing the fencing along the Blue Line track area between Orient Heights and Suff olk Downs stations.

School Board Member Anthony D’Ambrosio Best Wishes Class of 2022 Councillor-at-Large “Be bold, be courageous, be your best.” Steve Morabito The Publisher & Staff of “If opportunity doesn’t knock, build a door.” Graduation remarks by Mayor Brian Arrigo G ood evening Superintendent Kelly, Dr. Perella, distinguished staff and faculty, invited guests, parents, friends, and, most important, Graduates of the Revere High School Class of 2022. I have to admit… it feels great being up on this stage once again! I never had a doubt Revere would get to this point again and we did it - together. The class of 2022 endured a high school experience unlike any other in our history. When asked to give graduation addresses, I attempt to bring words of inspiration and impart some lessons of my own experience – But, here, today, your life and your lessons are far from what I could have ever imagined. The life you are living today — and the world you’re heading into — is dramatically different than the one you entered high school in 2019 … not to mention June of 1998 when I was sitting in one of those chairs. Here’s how easy and carefree life was in 1998: gas was only a about a dollar a gallon.. The Backstreet Boys were on Billboard’s Hot 100… and Apple had just released their fi rst iMac. We barely had the internet and email. No Amazon Prime deliveries. No social media (thank god)... and social issues of justice, inequality and violence were discussed in ways that brought more respect and peace for one another rather than driving divisiveness across ideologies, race and cultures. Our city has always been a brilliant example of how New Americans can build a dream of better for the next generation and today you carry that tradition forward with your commencement. Your class, Revere High school 2022 will be our champions for GRADUATES | SEE Page 14 City Council approves use of Community Improvement Trust Fund money Approves $25K for reuse study of Beachmont Fire Station By Adam Swift A t Monday night’s meeting, the City Council approved using Community Improvement Trust Fund money for several park upgrade projects as well as a reuse study for the Beachmont Fire Station. The City Council unanimously approved $80,000 for the Department of Planning and Community Development as matching funds for the Parkland Acquisitions and Renovations for Communities (PARC) grant program for upgrades to Costa, Gibson and Harmon Parks. The PARC grants were established to assist cities and towns in acquiring and developing land for park and outdoor recreation purposes. These grants can be used by municipalities to acquire parkland, build a new park or renovate an existing park. “To be clear, the matching funds will cover the matching funds for all three of these [park] projects,” said Richard Viscay, the city’s fi nance director. The council also unanimously approved $25,000 for the Department of Planning and Community Development for an adaptive reuse study for the Beachmont Fire Station. The city’s Public Arts Commission is looking to convert the unused fire station into a community arts center and fi re museum with gallery, studio and public use space. The project is very near and dear to the heart of Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna, who also serves on the Arts Commission and has been a driving force behind the reuse of the fi re station. “I’m very happy about that; thank you very much,” McKenna said to Viscay at Monday night’s meeting. In other business at Monday night’s meeting, Viscay said the City of Revere is looking to establish three new revolving funds for the city government. Revolving funds are funds where a department or service, such as water and sewer, are funded exclusively through the money it brings in. One is for the parks and recreation program at the Garfi eld Pool; the second is for Electric Vehicle charging stations; and the third is for trash and recycling barrels. Viscay said the City of Revere has been off ering Electric Vehicle charging stations free of charge in the city, but as the number of stations and vehicles increases, the City may look to collect some revenue from the stations to help pay for their upkeep. With the trash and recycling barrel fund, Viscay said, the goal is to have barrels in stock for those in the community who need new or extra barrels. “We have satisfied our three-year debt service on the purchase of these barrels, but we want to maintain an inventory,” said Viscay. “If people want a second barrel or a recycling barrel, we can set up a revolving fund so the dollars are in place so we can go back to purchase more and keep an inventory on hand.”

Revere’s Ollie Svendsen looks to a cloudy sky as he warms up his arms to take the batter’s box. Third pitcher up, Kyle Cummings takes his chance at the mound against the Panthers. Getting his second run of the game, Mikey Popp makes his way to fi rst base. Chris Cassidy slides head fi rst into second to secure two runners on base.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 GONEMAD | FROM Page 2 vere. This “us” versus “them” mentality hurts everyone and it is up to each of us to understand this reality. The last time America fought like one nation was back on Tuesday, September 11, 2001, when America was attacked at the World Trade Center. I still remember what that felt like. It felt good but it took a horrible tragedy to knock some sense into us. That period of oneness was far too brief. Today, America is back once again to September 10, 2001, when we were our usual disunited selves. In more recent years this polarization has gone really out of control and grown into a spreading cancer of sorts. The cure is found in each of us to fi nd those ways to bind us together. There is always more that unites us, than divides us. This polarization isn’t helping fi x anything in this country and only builds walls around each of us. We can’t wait for our elected leaders to fi nd solutions when most of them are the problem. We wait for the free press to offer solutions when they seem to enjoy the turmoil. To put it short and simply, Mayor Brian Arrigo is correct: WE’VE ALL GONE MAD. The job for all of us is to recognize the madness around us and be part of the solution bringing us back to sanity again. I am willing to take the fi rst step. Anyone want to join me? Government, after all, is our business. Act like you know that either we run it or it runs us. Standing together beats screaming and yelling like a bunch of banshees. Stop the madness. ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS.....Elegant, Custom CE Col boasting 10+ rms, 4 bedrms, 3 1/2 baths, gorgeous, gourmet kit w/custom quartz counters & center island, top-of-the-line Wolfe 6 burner gas stove w/griddle                                            molding throughout, incredible master suite w/”walk-around” walkin closet & NEW bath w/oversized, custom shower & double sink                                                              View the interior of this home right on your smartphone.                            APARTMENT FOR RENT EVERETT                                                 

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Page 17 RATES | FROM Page 1 Adaptive Clothing Takes the Stress Out of Dressing Dear Savvy Senior, What kinds of clothing options are available to mobility challenged seniors who have a diffi cult time dressing? Looking for Mom Dear Looking, The chore of dressing and undressing in traditional clothing can be diffi cult, time-consuming and even painful for millions of people with certain health and mobility problems. Fortunately, there’s a wide variety special clothing, known as “adaptive clothing,” that can help with most dressing challenges. Here’s what you should know. What is Adaptive Clothing? Adaptive clothing is specially designed garments for people with mobility issues, disabilities and cognitive challenges who have a diffi cult time getting dressed. This type of clothing incorporates discreet design features to make dressing and undressing easier, while still having the outward appearance of typical clothing. Depending on your mom’s needs, here are some of the many diff erent types of adaptive clothing options that could help. For self-dressing seniors who suff er from Parkinson’s or other disabilities that aff ect dexterity, there are pants, shirts, dresses and outerwear made with Velcro or magnetic closures instead of buttons and zippers, which are much easier to fasten and unfasten. But be aware that magnetic closures are not suitable for those who have pacemakers. For those who are disabled or who have limited range of motion and need assistance dressing, there are adaptive pants with zippers or snaps on both sides of the pants that are easier to pull on. And a wide range of rear closure shirts, tops and dresses with Velcro or snap fasteners in the back for those who can’t raise their arms over their head. For wheelchair users there are higher back and elastic waistband pants that don’t slip down, as well as pants with fabric overlaps at the seat to allow for easier toileting access. For people with tactile sensitivity, there are garments you can purchase that have soft and stretchy fabrics without tags and are sewn with fl at seams to help preventing chafi ng. And for seniors with Alzheimer’s disease there are one-piece jumpsuits that have a back-zipper access to prevent the wearer from disrobing inappropriately. Where to Shop? Because each person’s dressing needs and style is so specific, fi nding appropriate adaptive clothing can be diffi cult. Recently, mainstream clothing stores like JCPenney (jcpenney.com), Target (target.com) and Tommy Hilfi ger (usa.tommy. com) have started off ering a line of adaptive clothing for adults that combines fashion and functionality, but their instore options are limited. To get a bigger selection, visit the store’s website and type in “adaptive clothing” in their search engine. You can also fi nd a large selection at online stores that specialize in adaptive clothing like Buck & Buck (buckandbuck.com) and Silverts (silverts.com). Both of these companies have been selling adaptive clothing for decades and off er a wide variety of garments to accommodate almost any need, condition or style, for independent self-dressers and for those who need help. Some other adaptive clothing sites you should visit include Joe & Bella (joeandbella.com), Ovidis (ovidis.com), and IZ Adaptive (izadaptive.com), which sells clothing primarily designed for wheelchair users. And, if your mom is in need of adaptive footwear, Velcro fastening shoes (instead of shoelaces) have long been a popular option and can be found in most local shoe stores. Some other new lines of adaptive shoes that may interest her include Kiziks (kizik.com) and Zeba (zebashoes.com), which make fashionable sneakers and comfortable walking shoes that just slip on, hands-free, along with Billy Footwear (billyfootwear.com) and Friendly Shoes (friendlyshoes.com), which makes uniquely designed zip-on shoes.

Viscay noted that the actual operating costs outside of the fi xed costs decreased by 6.4 percent from FY2022. “We all know that this is terrible news, so after strategizing and talking to the mayor and some of the people in the Water and Sewer Department, we are before you to present a plan to try to stabilize the rates over the next three years,” Viscay told the council. The plan would keep the rate hike for FY2023 as well as the following two fi scal years at 4.25 percent, he said. The plan would include the use of $3 million in American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds over the next three years, as well as $1 million from the water and sewer stabilization fund and $900,000 from the water and sewer retained earnings account. “So, long story short, it’s going to take us $3.4 million in FY2023 to keep our rates at 4.25 percent,” said Viscay. “We are asking the council to consider adopting a three-year rate structure so that we can apply our ARPA funds and keep the rate stable over the next three years.” Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe said he has a number of questions about the plan and the rates, but would bring them up at the Ways and Means Subcommittee meeting. “I don’t think anyone is thrilled with that plan, but we are here before you to explain that these unfunded mandates from the consent decree and the debt service charges … [leave] us with no choice but to come up with a plan we think is as best as we can put together for the rate payers and the community,” said Viscay.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local senators’ roll call attendance records for the 2022 session through June 3. The Senate has held 69 roll calls so far in the 2022 session. Beacon Hill Roll Call tabulates the number of roll calls on which each senator voted and then calculates that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. Thirty-six of the 40 senators did not miss any roll calls and have 100 percent roll call attendance records. This high level of participation can likely be attributed to the fact that under emergency rules adopted because of the COVID-19 pandemic, the vast majority of the 40 senators are not in the Senate chamber during a session. Most are watching and listening to the session from their home, business or Senate offi ce and casting their votes remotely. Senators’ remote votes are communicated to Senate offi - cials during the session or prior to the session if senators are informed in advance that there will be a roll call vote. If a member wants to speak on an issue under consideration, they do so on a separate “debate phone line” and their voice is then heard in the Senate chamber and by anyone watching the broadcast online. The number of senators who had 100 percent roll call attendance records in the four years prior to the pandemic was lower than 2022 as follows: 28 in 2019; 20 in 2018; 24 in 2017; and 17 in 2016. It’s a Senate tradition that the Senate president only votes occasionally. Current Senate President Karen Spilka follows that tradition and only voted on 21 (30.4 percent) of the 69 roll calls while not voting on 48 (69.6 percent) of them. Only four senators, other than Spilka, missed any roll calls. Sens. Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and Sen.Joan Lovely (D-Salem) each missed three roll calls for a roll call attendance record of 95.6 percent. Sens. Sonia Chang Diaz (D-Boston) and Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) each missed only one roll and scored a roll call attendance record of 98.5 percent. Beacon Hill Roll Call contacted the four senators asking why they missed some roll calls. Sen. Lovely responded, “I was prevented from engaging in three roll call votes while working remotely because my Internet connection was interrupted. I have participated in every other roll call vote this session and submitted a letter on how I would have voted to the Senate clerk.” “The senator had some significant food allergies and suff ered an allergic reaction to lunch that day,” said DiZoglio aide Tom Arsenault. “However, she was grateful to have been able to get on the record with the clerk’s offi ce regarding her position on that particular amendment and recover in time to vote in favor of the bill.” Friedman and Chang-Diaz did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call asking them for a statement. SENATORS’ 2022 ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORDS THROUGH JUNE 3, 2022 The percentage listed next to the senator’s name is the percentage of roll call votes on which the senator voted. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that he or she missed. Sen. Lydia Edwards 100 percent (0) ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL SHOOTING AT A HOUSE OR APARTMENT (H 1803) – The House gave initial approval to a proposal that would impose up to a fi ve-year prison sentence and/or $10,000 fine on anyone who discharges an assault weapon, fi rearm, large capacity weapon, machine gun, rifl e, sawed-off shotgun or shotgun into a dwelling. Under current law this crime is a misdemeanor punishable by up to a 30-day jail sentence and/or $100 fi ne. “I fi led this legislation to create a criminal penalty for shooting into a house or building because at that time there was a string of shootings into houses in Lowell and I discovered that our police department did not have the necessary tools to enforce the law,” said co-sponsor Rep. Rady Mom (D-Lowell). “I am very pleased that we are moving forward in making what was a misdemeanor, a felony,” said co-sponsor Rep. Colleen Gary (D-Lowell). Individuals fi ring guns at a residential home can kill the residents inside. It is not just shooting at an inanimate object. People should be able to feel safe in their own homes.” Supporters also said that under current law the punishment is disproportionate to the severity of this type of incident. They noted this crime, primarily committed by gang members, is often used as an intimidation tactic without regard for the innocent people in the home. PREGNANT AND POST PARTUM MOTHERS (S 2731) – Stuck in the House Ways and Means Committee for nearly three months, since March 7, is a measure, approved unanimously 40-0 by the Senate, designed to ensure that pregnant and postpartum mothers get necessary and potentially life-saving health care by extending MassHealth insurance coverage to 12 months after pregnancy. MassHealth is the state’s Medicaid program that provides health care for low-income and disabled persons. “The Massachusetts Senate has taken another step to combat inequities in maternal health,” said sponsor Sen. Joan Lovely (D-Salem), when the Senate approved the bill in March. “By extending postpartum healthcare coverage to a full year, birthing individuals will be able to access vital physical and behavioral health resources that will decrease mortality and severe morbidity and improve the overall health of parent and child, especially for our minority populations.” At the same time, Senate President Karen Spilka (D-Ashland) said, “The danger of dying during pregnancy or childbirth is still far too high in the United States, particularly for Black women. But the Senate is committed to continuing our eff orts to ensure pregnant and postpartum mothers and people who give birth receive the critical care they need and deserve.” FUNDS FOR HOMELESSNESS – The U.S. Department of Labor announced the awarding of more than $57 million in grants nationwide to organizations that help veterans experiencing homelessness fi nd meaningful employment and assist them in overcoming barriers to transition back successfully into the workforce. The grants include $1,506,323 for the Bay State including $501,834 For Volunteers of America of Massachusetts in Jamaica Plain; $184,489 for the Massachusetts Military Support Foundation in West Barnstable; and $820,000 for Veterans Inc. in Worcester. The funding will support 112 continuation grants totaling more than $37 million as well as 56 new three-year grants totaling some $20 million. “The pandemic further exposed the diffi culties faced by our nation’s homeless veterans,” said U.S. Secretary of Labor and former Boston Mayor Marty Walsh. “The Homeless Veterans’ Reintegration Program grants announced today will fund initiatives that help our veterans— particularly those in underserved communities—get the training and support they need return to the workforce and use their skills to make valuable contributions to our society.” Proponents also noted that the awards will enable recipients to provide a wide range of services to homeless veterans and those at risk of homelessness including learning occupational skills, attaining apprenticeships or on-the-job training opportunities and receiving job search and placement assistance. STATE BUDGET DEADLINE IS JULY 1 (H 4701/S 2915) – The House and Senate each appointed three members to a conference committee to hammer out a compromise version of the different $49 billion plus versions of the fi scal 2023 budget passed by each branch. Reps. Aaron Michlewitz (D-Boston), Ann-Margaret Ferrante (D-Gloucester) and Todd Smola (R-Warren) were appointed by Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy). On the Senate side Senate President Karen Spilka chose Sens. Michael Rodrigues (D-Westport), Cindy Friedman (D-Arlington) and Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). QUOTABLE QUOTES “The alarm has been sounded. There is an inability of police departments to recruit and retain police offi cers. It’s deeply concerning because having diverse, well-trained and eff ective police professionals is a necessity. We need to study the issue, understand it better and focus on making sure we have police departments that are suffi ciently staff ed with qualifi ed and diverse offi cers.” ---Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) on his bill to create a special commission charged with taking stock of the police workforce challenges experienced by cities and towns across the state. “It is unacceptable that we as a country continue to live in a seemingly endless cycle of gun violence. Traditional approaches are not working, and we must do what we can to potentially save lives. I implore the Legislature to support the divestment of our public pension funds from gun and ammunition manufacturers and distributors in support of the American people who are victims and survivors of preventable gun violence, just as we did recently by divesting from companies in Russia following their invasion of Ukraine.” ---State Treasurer Deb Goldberg. “As we publish yet another audit revealing a lack of cybersecurity training, we continue to see a pattern across the commonwealth, as inadequate cybersecurity training practices put government agencies in a vulnerable position at this time of heightened cyber threats.” --- State Auditor Suzanne Bump on her report on the lack of cybersecurity training in the offi ces of district attorneys across the state. The auditor recommended that the offi ces develop and implement policies and procedures which require newly hired employees to receive initial cybersecurity awareness training within 30 days of their hiring, as well as annual cybersecurity awareness training for all employees. “Without METCO, diversity would be virtually nonexistent in some districts.” ---Dr. Ken Ardon, co-author of a study of the 56-year-old Metropolitan Council for Educational Opportunity (METCO) program under which some 3,200 mostly Black and Hispanic students from Boston and Springfield attend public schools in about three dozen surrounding communities. 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 BEACON | SEE Page 19

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 10, 2022 Page 21 BUDGET | FROM Page 1 uled over the next week, with the subcommittee scheduled to hold its fi nal FY23 budget discussion and recommendations for the full City Council on Thursday, June 16. The proposed operating budget is about $14 million higher than the $225 million operating budget passed by the City Council for FY22. “The FY23 budget is a responsible, balanced budget that continues to bring back staffi ng and services that were lost due to the economic downturn caused by the pandemic,” said Viscay. The proposed budget is made up of the general fund, which totals $206,953,284, and the water/sewer and solid waste enterprise funds, which total $33.7 million, for a total of $239,690,838. In the general fund, the city side of the budget is $46.3 million, the school total is $110.8 million and the fi xed costs, which are costs such as health insurance and pension costs shared by the city and the schools, is $48.8 million. Viscay pointed out some of the overall highlights of the budget, including the creation of a new Talent and Culture department in the general government account, as well as settled union contracts with labor and management units within city government. For public safety, Viscay said the city settled a new threeyear contract with the firefi ghters’ union and E911 employees, with bargaining in progress for the police patrol and superior offi cers contracts ongoing. Viscay said there is $500,000 being held in the mayor’s budget as a contingency fund to pay for anticipated costs associated with a settled contract. “We do have a particular interest for funding training in public safety and maintaining of staffi ng levels for our uniformed police and fi re departments,” said Viscay. “It is a key component of the administration’s commitment to public safety.” On the school side of the budget, Viscay noted that transportation costs have skyrocketed, and that it is an issue that the city government and the schools are working together to try to address. In the public works department, Viscay said the DPW contract is still open, and construction of a new $25 million public works facility is slated to get underway soon. In the culture and recreation budget, the city has created a new travel and tourism department funded by American 73 Plummer Ave, Winthrop MA 02152 Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds, and there is increased funding for the library. The library will see improvements to the facility in the coming year, as well as a new bookmobile, which Viscay said will improve access to books and other library services for residents. Viscay also pointed to some good news on the typically onerous health insurance costs for the city, stating that health insurance rates are level funded with a zero percent increase for FY23. In addition, he said the city has successfully negotiated a change in health insurance benefi ts with the Public Employees Commission that will go into eff ect for FY25. The employee contribution for health insurance will increase from 20 percent to 22.5 percent in exchange for a.75 percent raise that will go into eff ect on the last day of FY24. Ways and Means Subcommittee Chair Dan Rizzo worked steadily through the department budget presentations scheduled for Wednesday, and the majority of the focus was on the various department goals and achievements, with some questions asked about small amounts of money that were largely being transferred between various departments.
