During City Council Ways & Means Subcommittee budget hearings, city fi nance director Richard Viscay fi lled in the council on how the City of Revere has appropriated or plans to use those funds. “These funds cover the period from March 11, 2021, to December 2024, with obligated dollars being spent by December 2026,” said Viscay. Viscay detailed the approval process for fund requests set up by Mayor Brian Arrigo’s administration, with Viscay, the mayor’s chief of staff , and planning director Tech Lang reviewing applications before sending them off to Arrigo for his fi nal approval. To date, Viscay said, about $18 million of the $30 million has either been spent or committed for various programs. The federal Covid relief act set up several categories for the use of the ARPA funds. “We set up the $30 million like any other budget,” said Viscay. “We put $5.3 million of that for the response of the public health emergency, and we have committed and expended approximately $3.9 million.” Some of the uses of the money in that category are funding for a new city health and wellness center on Charger Street and Covid outreach measures, such as testing, vaccinations and other administrative costs. Other projects include $475,000 for the replacement of the turf fi eld at Revere High School and $442,000 towards a Covid vaccination incentive program for city employees. The city also set aside almost $5 million for household assistance, with $2.2 million towards housing relief payments for residents, $555,000, and additional funds for housing stability legal assistance. The small business and nonprofit assistance includes $4 million mostly administered by the Planning & Community Development Department. Those funds have been used for small business facade improvements, a restaurant recovery program and fi nancial aid to youth sports nonprofi ts. About $7.2 million is earmarked for water and sewer infrastructure. The administration is proposing using $3 million of that to help subsidize water and sewer rates for residents. Another $3.4 million is set aside for travel and tourism purposes, including the creation of a new travel and tourism department in the city. Viscay said the fi nal $5.2 million is in a contingency fund for projects that do not fall into the other categories. Some of those funds will be used for riverfront public improvements and gate valve and hydrant replacements across the city. ~ REVERE BEAUTIFICATION COMMITTEE ~ Wanted! Beautifully landscaped homes and businesses! ummer will soon be here! What better way to celebrate than to beautify your property? The Revere Beautification Committee (RBC), in continuing its mission of “working to improve the image of the city of Revere through an aggressive cleanup and beautifi cation program,” urges all residents to begin thinking of the various ways in which their property can be beautifi ed. To encourage this, every year the RBC recognizes homes and businesses that take special pride in the appearance of their property. To be able to do this, the organization needs your help in identifying the people who make an extra eff ort to beautify their property. After all, you are the person who might live next to a very special property or ride by such a property on your way to work, the gym or a shop. Who would be better qualified to identify a home/business that deserves to be recognized? Although RBC members travel throughout the city during the warm weather searching for homes that meet their criteria, it is impossible for them to see every property in the city. Therefore, they could use your eyes to help them fi nd worthy properties to recognize. They are asking all residents to let them know if a property should be recognized for the eff ort that the owner has expended in making their property beautiful. It’s easy to do. Just call the RBC at 781-485-2770 and leave the address of the property that you think should be considered and the RBC will do the rest. “We thank you in advance for all the help that you can give us. Please remember to call the Revere Beautifi cation Committee to nominate your candidate for “Beautiful Home/Business of the Month” award.” Prices subject to change Ask about our Heating Oil Conditioner!

(Courtesy photo) We Sell Cigars & FATHER’S DAY Accessories ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Mission from Mars By Gini Pariseau I n a conversation not long ago, I asked a man where he was from. He told me he was from Mars originally but had moved on. Having originally been from Venus and moved on myself, I was fascinated to hear about his journey. He told me Mars was a starting point in his Map Quest of life. Fatherhood was the vehicle that catapulted him off the planet, and it took him to a place he had never known existed. For the fi rst time in his life, he fastened his seat belt. From the moment he beheld that extension of himself, he realized that Mars would probably not be a habitable place for him anymore. Mars off ered selfi sh awareness, the supposed liberation of an unplanned future and a dayto-day existence that required little emotion and plenty of instant gratifi cation. Fatherhood, from the moment this man was awarded the title, was a vehicle that burst R.Y.O. forward at whiplash speed. He cruised through inspiring territories of awareness and being. To this very special man, “that moment” crowned him with responsibility. Winning was never again to be determined in innings or goals or yards. On Mars, winning was the epitome of every endeavor or challenge. Fatherhood changed all that. Now it wasn’t a matter of winning. Rather, it was the hope that when all was said and done, there would be no losers. So many of us will celebrate this Father’s Day with special thoughts and memories of the journey that these former Martians took us on. I will never “dine out” without giving thanks for my father’s continuous eff ort to make sure I knew my table manners. I will never start to walk up a set of stairs and not hear my father always saying…”There’s always something that needs to be carried MISSION | SEE Page 21 TOBACCO ---------TUBES CIGAR Churchill Size Cigars including a Cohiba - Long    SMOKERS DELIGHT! 15 Handmade Churchill Size wrapped $43.95 FIFTY YEARS 2022 Happy Father’s Day 1972 HUMIDOR SPECIAL! $99.95 Complete!

The poll gauged the opinions of voters on President Joe Biden’s handling of the economy and inflation, the open Governor’s race, the legislature’s graduated income surtax amendment ballot question, the eff ort to suspend the state gas tax, and reasons for why nearly 1 in 4 voters are currently considering leaving Massachusetts. The poll was conducted with live operators and fi elded between June 1 - 5, 2022, surveyed 750 registered voters with a history of voting in elections. The margin of error is +/3.5% with a 95% confidence level.

The FAF poll asked voters if they think Massachusetts should temporarily suspend the state gas and diesel taxes and 68% said yes, while 18% said no. The poll asked voters if they are considering or have made plans to leave Massachusetts to reside somewhere else and nearly 1 in 4 voters responded that they are. For voters who responded they have plans or are considering leaving Massachusetts, the poll off ered selection of several reasons for why they are leaving and the number one response was “taxes are too high” at nearly 32%. A similar poll was conducted in March by John Zogby of Zogby Strategies in New York state that also found “taxes are too high” as the primary reason for people leaving that neighboring Northeastern state. This is the second FAF poll that shows that a majority of voters would be against the legislature’s proposed income surtax amendment ballot question. In February, the poll found nearly 52% were against the question while 37% were in support of it. This June’s poll results show a sharp shift in opinion against the proposed ballot question. Nearly 69% of voters would not support it, while only 20% would support it. Among Massachusetts voters, concerns over infl ation seems to be intensifying and the increasingly high costs associated with nearly everything may be causing voters to sour on proposed policies, and the politicians that advocate for them. President Joe Biden’s job performance and handling of infl ation took a hit from FAF polls in March and February. Nearly 49% approve and 46% disapprove of the President’s job performance, a drop from 54% approve and 44% disapprove in March. When asked specifically about President Biden’s handling of infl ation, the President’s numbers continue to decline. In March, the approval and disapproval of the President’s handling of inflation was tied at 48%, while they now stand at 38.5% approve and 53% disapprove. That represents a 14.5-point swing in opinion against the President’s handling of infl ation. The poll also asked about the candidates running for Governor. Once again, infl ation and overall economic anxiety seem to be impacting the Governor’s race. With 60% unsure who they will vote for in November, June’s poll demonstrates an electorate that remains unsold on Healey. “The poll is starting to show strong changes in feelings on issues and candidates as a result of economic anxiety being the top issue on most people’s minds. The President’s handling of infl ation is taking a nose dive, the legislature’s ballot question to raise taxes on the affl uent and small businesses is beginning to unravel, and nearly three in fi ve voters remain undecided in the Governor’s race, which is not a good sign for Maura Healey, the establishment’s pick,” stated Paul D. Craney, a spokesman for the Fiscal Alliance Foundation. “For voters who want to leave or plan to leave Massachusetts, they made it clear their primary reason is due to taxes. When asked about suspending the state gas tax, there was overwhelming support by voters, which is not encouraging if you are Senate President Karen Spilka or Speaker Ron Mariano who have described gas tax relief as a ‘gimmick.’ These very strong feelings as a result of taxes and infl ation may be the primary reason for why the legislature’s ballot question has seen a 33-point swing since our poll in February. The campaign for the grad tax may not be in full swing but voters are already starting to sour on it,” continued Craney. “The poll seems to show that general election voters, who do not pay as much attention to daily politics as do primary or caucus voters, are beginning to show strong feelings toward candidates and policies due to concern for economic anxiety,” concluded Craney.

On Saturday, June 4, students, staff , and family members gathered at the Kevin O'Grady School. As part of the event, participants walked or rolled around the school 10 times. Attendees also enjoyed music, ice cream, and socializing with classmates. "This was a fantastic way for the community to get out and enjoy the fresh air with their family and friends while supporting a great cause," Guiney said. "Many in our student population have varying abilities, and I know that students truly enjoyed participating in an activity that was inclusive to all." The event raised more than $7,000 through donations from family and friends. Funds will support the installation of an outdoor musical memorial space in honor of several students and teachers who have passed away. The space will include several instruments fi tted for outdoor use. "Through the kindness of our community members, we were able to raise enough money to build a memorial space on campus. This will be a special spot for students and staff to gather while remembering and honoring those who hold a special place in our hearts," Director Rosenberg said.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 City Council’s Ways & Means Subcommittee Meeting Library Director adding new positions, bookmobile By Adam Swift T he Revere Public Library is adding two new positions and will have an increased budget for capital improvements in Fiscal Year 2023. Library Director Diana Luongo appeared before the City Council’s Ways & Means Subcommittee on Wednesday evening as part of the FY23 budget hearings, highlighting recent accomplishments and plans for the next year. Luongo pointed to recent improvements that have been made to the physical condition of the library and a revitalized focus on staffing. “When I inherited the library right before Covid, it was a mess; there were a lot of old items piled up and junk,” said Luongo. “Some of it we successfully auctioned off and that [money] went back into the general fund. We cleared out the library completely and refurbished the old fl oors and brought them back to life.” Luongo also noted that when she took over as director there wasn’t enough staffi ng in place to successfully run programs for the community. She said she was able to work with the union to add some new roles and responsibilities for staff to help create new positions that could provide new programming. In FY23, Luongo said, the library has two new positions – a young adult librarian and an adult librarian – in the budget to help expand services and programming. Those positions will be paid for with state grants the library typically receives each year. The library will also have an increased budget for capital improvements and supplies this year, and the FY23 capital budget includes funding for a bookmobile to bring library services to other parts of the community. “We’re trying to get back to our staffi ng levels from pre-pandemic and also giving some additional funds so they can expand their programming and services,” said city Finance Director Richard Viscay. Viscay said there was feedback from the library trustees indicating that Revere is one of the lowest funded libraries per capita in the state. “We certainly don’t want that moniker,” said Viscay. Councillor-at-Large Dan Rizzo, who is chair of the Ways & Means Subcommittee, said he would like to see either a new library or an expansion to the existing library down the line. “I’ve always viewed the library as the center of our community,” said Rizzo. “You look around at some other communities, and there are some beautiful libraries – not to take anything away from the [Revere] library – I think it has a lot of charm, but its old, needs ‘TLC’ and needs to be expanded.” RevereTV Spotlight F irstly, this is a reminder that RevereTV’s full coverage of the Pride Flag Raising Ceremony and Revere High School Class of 2022 Graduation are currently replaying on RTV.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 9 BBB Scam Alert: Spot red flags when looking for deals on dental work D ental work can be expensive, insurance or not, and scammers know it. Recently, BBB Scam Tracker has received multiple reports from people who were scammed by con artists claiming to off er expensive dental equipment at discounted rates. How the scam works You do an online search for a retainer, dental veneers, or another kind of dental equipment. You fi nd an online ad that looks legitimate and click on it to visit the website. The website may feature high-quality customer videos that seem convincing. Best of all, the price is right. You’ll only pay a few hundred dollars instead of the thousands your dentist quoted you. Once you place your order, the charge appears on your credit card, and the business claims your order is on its way. If the order does arrive at all, consumers report that it comes long after your credit card’s dispute limit has expired. For example, one victim reported: “The fi rst indication of something not quite right was the length of time to receive the product, which was nearly a full month later! Plus, they advertised a California location, but the tracking number for my package indicated the origination point was China. When the item fi nally arrived, the veneers were total junk. You could fi nd teeth like these in any Halloween costume display. It’s a total misrepresentation from the online ad.” If you try to contact the company’s customer service, you’ll quickly fi nd it doesn’t exist. The company will be unreachable, and you likely lost all that money for good. How to avoid online purchase scams • Research a company before you buy. A quick internet search of the business name and “complaints” or “scam” could reveal you’re dealing with a less than honest vendor. Always do thorough research on a company before making a purchase, especially if it’s one you haven’t heard of it before. • Be wary of online ads. Search engine results and social media often feature online ads that are eye-catching and appear professional. While many legitimate businesses advertise this way, scammers do too, so don’t take every ad at face value. • Don’t fall for deals that are too good to be true. Many a scam victim fell for a great deal that didn’t turn out to be great at all. Scammers love to offer high-dollar products (like dental equipment) at prices way lower than the actual cost. • Pay with your credit card. When paying with a credit card, you can usually dispute fraudulent charges. Be sure you know your dispute time limit though. If a company hasn’t delivered by the date they promised, it’s time to fi le a dispute.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 11 1031 EXCHANGES AND LIMITED LIABILITY COMPANIES Revere Firefi ghters are shown saluting during the playing of taps. State Senator Lydia Edwards thanked fi refi ghters for serving. Internal Revenue Code Section 1031 allows an investor of real estate to sell his or her property at a substantial gain and replace that property with like-kind property within a certain period of time in order to defer paying capital gains taxes. The Investor must use a qualifi ed intermediary to handle the transaction from beginning to end. The deferred capital gain serves to reduce the cost basis of the replacement property for purposes of a later sale and for purposes of calculating depreciation on the replacement property. Form 8824 is used to report the “like-kind” exchange as part of your 1040 or entitylevel return. A single member LLC can Bugler Stephen White and bagpiper Daniel Norton played taps. enter into a 1031 exchange as well as a two or more member LLC. A single member LLC is transparent for tax purposes. No separate tax return has to be fi led. If you are a self-employed individual operating as a single member LLC, you would simply report your income and expenses on Schedule C. If you own rental real estate titled in the name of a single-member LLC, you would report the rent income and expenses on Schedule E. If, however, you operate as FOREVER IN THEIR HEARTS: Shown from left to right: Russell Vitale’s wife of 50 years, Beverly Rogers, his sister, Elaine Bougiouris, and brother-in-law, Kyriacos Bougiouris, held a memorial plaque for Russell, 84, who served on the department for 21 years.

You can also choose to be taxed as a corporation and either choose regular C Corporation status or S Corporation status. In Massachusetts, a common law state, a husband and wife that are 50% owners of a limited liability company must fi le Form 1065. In community property states, a husband and wife are considered to be one owner and therefore do not have to fi le Form 1065. Even if you owned a rental property just in your name, you could title the replacement property in the name of a single member LLC and still take advantage of Internal Revenue Code Section 1031. The single member LLC is disregarded for tax purposes. For a two or more member LLC, the 1031 exchange must take place at the entity level. The LLC would sell the rental real estate that it has title to and would title the replacement property in its name as well. The LLC would fi le its own Form 8824 to report the sale, deferred gain, any recognized gain if the full selling price was not reinvested, etc. A safe harbor holding period of the replacement property in order to secure the validity of the 1031 exchange is two years. Three years would be even better. There often are complexities when one or more of the partners do not wish to remain invested in rental real estate and would simply rather cash out and pay the tax. In that event, the partnership would look to into formulating a tax strategy that would accommodate the partners wishing to remain invested and wishing to defer the recognition of gain and the partners that wish to cash out can pay the capital gains tax on their share of the capital gain. Taking advantage of the 1031 exchange can save a signifi cant amount in capital gains taxes and it should not be overlooked. Joseph D.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Save the Harbor Awards $250K for Free Beach Events O n Saturday, June 11 at 10:00 AM at their offi ces on Boston’s Fish Pier Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay awarded more than $250,000 in Better Beaches program grants to 62 organizations and creatives to support 100 free beach events and programs in nine communities on the region's public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket as part of their Better Beaches Program partnership with the Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR). In 2021, the Better Beaches Program supported more than 60 organizations in nine waterfront communities from Nahant to Nantasket with events including festivals, movie nights, concerts, and beach parties. Save the Harbor has invested nearly $1.75 million dollars to support free beach events and programs since they began their partnership with DCR in 2007. This year’s Better Beaches Program grants will bring free movie nights, DJ sets, circus performances, bike rides, Asian, Latin-American, and Afro-Arabian cultural nights, physical and mental wellness workshops, beach parties for kids and teens, beach wheelchairs, mobility mats, and much more to the region’s waterfront neighborhoods and beachfront communities of Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy, and Hull. “The metropolitan beaches are extraordinary assets that belong to all the people of our region,” said Chris Mancini, Executive Director of Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. “We’re proud to fund free community events led by organizations that celebrate and represent Representatives of more than 60 area organizations received grants to fund programs on the region’s public beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull. our communities' cultural and racial diversity, and what we have in common: we love our beaches." This year, at the recommendation of the Metropolitan Beaches Commission, the three largest grants were given to organizations that promote racial justice, access for people with disabilities and language accessibility, which were the subjects of three recent MBC hearings with more than 250 participants. Save the Harbor/Save the Bay awarded $7,500 each to the Veronica Robles Cultural Center, A Trike Called Funk, and Triangle, Inc. These organizations will host Vamos a la Playa, a series of activities to foster an appreciation for Latin American cultures, Bike to the Beach and Boogie, a series of bike-riding events at fi ve diff erent beaches with guest DJs, and Beach:Ability, a day of beach activities with sand and fl oating wheelchairs available. Save the Harbor also used $7,500 to fund free mobility mats and beach wheelchairs to ensure the beach is accessible for everyone. “The Better Beaches Program events are as diverse as the communities that host them,” said Metropolitan Beaches Commission Co-Chair, Senator Brendan Crighton of Lynn, “But one thing they all have in common is that they bring communities together to enjoy our region’s public beaches. Thank you to Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay and DCR for working together to strengthen our beachfront communities and waterfront neighborhoods.” Metropolitan Beaches Commission Co-Chair Representative Adrian Madaro of East Boston agreed saying, “Our beaches are most active when Save the Harbor and their partners are hosting free family-friendly and fun activities on them. They are especially important to my constituents in East Boston and all those people who rely on these spectacular urban natural resources for recreation.” This year, Save the Harbor also let kids and the community decide how to invest $25,000 in Better Beaches funds in a participatory budgeting process that generated more than 200 ideas. Over 600 people voted for their favorites: Boston Harbor Beach Market, Diversity Matters Fest, Beats on the Beach Block Party, Teen Beach Bash, and Wellness Fest. Each winning idea received $5,000 in funding for the summer. “The metropolitan beaches belong to our communities and our young people,” said Maya Smith, Partnerships and Program Development Director at Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. “Participatory budgeting lifts up their voices and lets them be a part of the BEACH | SEE Page 17 This year’s Better Beaches Events include concerts, festivals and performances by the Boston Circus Guild.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 13 BBB Tip: Help choosing a summer camp for your child C amps are once again looking like a good option for child care and entertainment over the long, hot summer. Now that many pandemic restrictions have been lifted, there are more camps available for caregivers looking to have their youngsters spend the summer being active and engaged. In the United States, the American Camping Association (ACA) accredits camps based on accountability, credibility, and commitment. The YMCA of the USA (Y-USA) off ers camps through local YMCAs across the U.S. In Canada, check with the Canadian Camping Association - they encourage campers and camp professionals to look to their local Provincial Camping Association and Provincial Health Authority for the most up-to-date information. BBB off ers these tips to parents searching for the right summer camp: • Check for accreditation. Regardless of pandemic-related issues, the safest way to ensure your child’s safety is to send them to a trustworthy camp. ACA accredited camps must meet the 32 national summer camp standards, and BBB Accreditation requires the organization meet eight BBB Standards for Trust. Search for camps in the ACA and find camps near you in the BBB Directory to check for BBB Accreditation. • Know required safety standards. Individual states will provide health and safety guidelines for summer camps, following CDC recommendations. These protocols may include measures such as monitoring health of staff and campers, limiting visitor access to campgrounds, adapting meal distribution and providing sanitation products to staff and campers. • Use references. Ask if they have a list of references or past campers you can contact. You may also want to consider asking trusted friends or family their recommendations for summer camps. Reviews and complaint histories can also be found on the camp’s business profi le at BBB.org. • Assess medical resources. Camps should have resources for treating sick and injured campers. Some children need daily medication; ask about the camp’s medical facilities and how those resources can accommodate your child's needs. • Review contracts and fees. As always, you should review contracts before you sign them. Find out the total cost and if a deposit is required. See which activities or services require additional fees. You should also check for details regarding refunds. If that information is not outlined in the contract, ask a camp employee. Find a summer camp near you at BBB.org. Will Hurricane Season Be Starting Earlier? While NWS considers moving the Atlantic storm season up 2 weeks, BoatUS has the goods on how to prepare your boat now SPRINGFIELD, Va., May 16, 2022 – No, you’re not going crazy. The current six-month Atlantic Hurricane Season, set in 1965, begins June 1 and runs through November 30. But if you have a recreational boat on the Eastern Seaboard or Gulf, you’ve likely noticed that the last seven annual hurricane seasons have experienced some type of tropical storm system in May – or earlier. Those early forming storms are now leading the National Weather Service to consider officially moving the hurricane season up two weeks to May 15. What’s a boater to do? “You can’t change hurricane season, but you can set up a customized hurricane plan for your boat now,” says Scott Croft, Boat Owners Association of The United States (BoatUS) vice president, Public Aff airs. Researchers from Colorado State University are predicting another active Atlantic hurricane season for 2022 with 19 named storms and nine expected to reach hurricane strength (winds of 74 mph or greater). BoatUS notes it is the wind-driven storm surge of water that causes the most damage to recreational vessels as docks and infrastructure are torn apart and lowland boat storage areas fl ood. BoatUS, the national advocacy, services and safety group for boat owners with more than 800,000 members, has free recreational boat-, yacht club-, and marina-preparation information at BoatUS.com/Hurricanes. Also off ered is an extensive library of hurricane-preparation videos and BoatUS Magazine articles containing proven tips and techniques amassed from the nearly four decades of post-storm recreational vessel recovery, salvage, and wreck removal experience. “How to Find and Fix Potential Breaking Points on Your Boat” and “How Not to Read a Hurricane Map” are just a couple of the helpful short reads available. More extensive downloadable guides include “BoatUS Magazine Hurricane Preparations” and “Preparing Boats and Marinas for Hurricanes” and an easyto-download “BoatUS Hurricane Preparation Worksheet” to take with you to the boat. To help know when to prepare, an Active Storm Tracker helps keep boaters up to date on the direction and intensity of incoming storms, and the BoatUS App off ers text alerts. Putting together a hurricane plan today will make preparations easier when a storm approaches – and you will already have everything you need.

Now, video ads on places like TikTok are promoting small, short-term loans to a new, young audience – and making them seem cheap and easy. However, just because it looks simple, doesn’t mean it is. Predatory payday lenders are using the platform to make dishonest claims promising instant cash with no credit checks, late fees, or interest rates. Many times, the advertisers are getting around the rules of the platform. TikTok and Meta have rules restricting ads for short term/payday loans, but some have found their way through. Here’s what you should know before taking out a payday loan from a social media ad. Understanding payday loans featured on social media ads • Apps might not call it an “interest rate” but that’s what it is. Many of the lenders that advertise on TikTok try to skirt regulations by creating new names for their service. By calling their interest rates a “tip” or a “fee,” lenders hope you won’t notice just how much interest you’ll actually pay. Keep in mind that responsible lenders will always be willing to disclose the APR on their loans. • Payday loans are costly. A twoweek payday loan with a $15 fee to borrow $100 translates to an annual percentage rate (APR) of almost 400 percent, according to the Consumer Financial Protection Bureau. That’s a huge jump from even a high interest rate credit card, which have rates of about 30 percent. • Just because it’s easy, doesn’t make a payday loan a good idea. If you are young or have no access to other types of credit, you are an ideal target for a payday lender. Less-than-scrupulous lenders promote the fact that you don’t need a credit check or any paperwork to get a loan. However, that ease can come at a high cost. Before you pursue a payday loan, spend some time shopping around for other options. • Not all social media ads are truthful. Payday lenders seen on TikTok may promise you instant cash. But if it sounds too good to be true, it probably is. Many companies like these have faced scrutiny for deceptive lending practices, and some may simply be after access to your bank account. Don’t believe everything you see on social media ads without doing further research. • Be sure you can repay the loan. With such high interest rates, many people find themselves stuck in a debt cycle. In addition, payday loans can ruin your credit if you fi nd yourself unable to pay back what you owe. Better alternatives to payday loans • Develop a budget with an emergency fund. Create a budget so you know how much money you have coming in and how much you need to pay your bills. This will help you avoid needing a loan in the fi rst place. Then, set aside some cash each month to build up an emergency fund. Then, you will be covered even if an unexpected expense or an emergency comes up. • Get credit counseling. If you fi nd yourself unable to pay your bills or if you are caught in a debt cycle due to a high interest loan, get credit counseling. The U.S. Department of Justice has a list of agencies for people looking for debt reduction assistance. In Canada, see this list of Canadian nonprofi t credit counselling agencies. Also, check out BBB’s tip on credit counseling for more resources. • Shop around if you need a loan. Compare interest rates, charges, and late fees by reading the fi ne print before you choose a lender. Pay close attention to both interest rates and loan rollover fees. Credit unions are a good place to take out a small loan with reasonable interest rates. Even credit card cash advances, which usually have interest rates in the double digits, likely have lower interest rates than what a payday lender will off er you. See tips on choosing a bank or credit union. • Contact creditors if you can’t pay on time. If you realize you won’t be able to make a payment on time, don’t panic. Contact the creditor directly. Many creditors will be willing to work with you to come up with a payment plan that you can aff ord. For more information Read the BBB Tip: Payday Loans for more considerations on working with payday lenders. You’ll fi nd practical tips in the BBB Tip: How to shop for fi nancial services as well. If you feel a payday lender has committed fraud or taken advantage of you, fi le a complaint on BBB.org and with the Federal Trade Commission.

North Shore Navigators' Gigliotti Named NECBL Pitcher of the Week LYNN, Mass. -- The New England Collegiate Baseball League (NECBL) recognized the North Shore Navigators’ Jake Gigliotti (Northeastern) as the fi rst Pitcher of the Week for the 2022 season, it was announced on Monday afternoon. Gigliotti shut down the Ocean State Waves during his fi rst debut start of the summer last Wednesday in South Kingstown, R.I., tossing six scoreless, nohit innings with 11 strikeouts, which are tied for the most by any pitcher in an NECBL outing so far this summer. The right-hander from Paxton, Mass., issued just two walks in the entire outing, facing the minimum through fi ve innings after starting the game with three consecutive 1-2-3 frames. Gigliotti shares the spotlight with Vermont Mountaineers third baseman Ben Williamson (William & Mary), who was named NECBL Player of the Week.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 17 BEACH | FROM Page 12 decision-making process for their community.” Funds to support the program How to Choose a Medicare Supplemental (Medigap) Policy Dear Savvy Senior, I’m planning to enroll in original Medicare in a few months and have been told I probably need to get a Medicare supplemental policy too. Can you off er any tips on selecting one? Almost 65 Dear Almost, If you’re enrolling in original Medicare, getting a supplemental policy (also known as Medigap insurance) too is a smart idea because it will help pay for things that aren’t covered by Medicare like copayments, coinsurance and the Part A deductible. Here are some tips to help you choose an appropriate plan. Medigap Plans In all but three states (Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin), Medigap plans, which are sold by private health insurers, are available to new enrollees in eight different standardized plans. These plans are labeled with the letters A, B, D, G, K, L, M and N, with two more, C and F, that are only available to those eligible for Medicare before 2020. Plan G is the most popular policy among new enrollees because it covers the most comprehensive range of benefi ts. Monthly premiums for Plan G typically range between $100 and $300, depending on your age and the state you reside in. If that’s more than you’re willing to pay, there are also high-deductible plans that have lower premiums but impose higher out-of-pocket costs. For more information on the different types of plans and coverage details, including Medigap options in Massachusetts, Minnesota, and Wisconsin, go to Medicare.gov/ publications and type in “choosing a medigap policy” in the Keyword box, and download their 2022 guide. Or call 1-800-MEDICARE and ask them to mail you a copy. How to Choose To pick a Medigap policy that works best for you, consider your health, family medical history and your budget. The diff erences among plans can be small and rather confusing. To help you choose, visit Medicare.gov/medigap-supplemental-insurance-plans and type in your ZIP code. This will give you a list of the plans available in your area, their price ranges and the names, and contact information of companies that sell them. But to get specifi c pricing information, you’ll need to contact the carriers directly or call your State Health Insurance Assistance Program. See ShipHelp.org or call 877-839-2675 for contact information. Since all Medigap policies with the same letter must cover the exact same benefi ts (it’s required by law), you should shop for the cheapest policy. You’ll get the best price if you sign up within six months after enrolling in Medicare Part B. During this open-enrollment period, an insurer cannot refuse to sell you a policy or charge you more because of your health. You also need to be aware of the pricing methods, which will aff ect your costs. Medigap policies are usually sold as either: “community-rated” where everyone in an area is charged the same premium regardless of age; “issue-age-rated” that is based on your age when you buy the policy, but will only increase due to infl ation, not age; and “attained-age-rated,” that starts premiums low but increases as you age. Community-rate and issue-age-rated policies are the best options because they will save you money in the long run. You can buy the plan directly from an insurance company, or you can work with a reputable insurance broker. Drug Coverage You also need to know that Medigap policies do not cover prescription drugs, so if you don’t have drug coverage, you’ll need to buy a separate Medicare Part D drug plan too. See Medicare.gov/ plan-compare to compare plans. Also note that Medigap plans do not cover vision, dental care, hearing aids or long-term care. Alternative Option Instead of getting original Medicare, plus a Medigap policy and a separate Part D drug plan, you could sign up for a Medicare Advantage plan (see medicare.gov/ plan-compare) that provides all-inone coverage. These plans, which are sold by insurance companies, are generally available through HMOs and PPOs that require you to get your care within a network of doctors.

LEGISLATURE OVERRIDES BAKER’S VETO OF BILL ALLOWING DRIVER’S LICENSE FOR UNDOCUMENTED/ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (H 4805) House 119-36, Senate 32-8, gained the two-thirds vote necessary to override Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of legislation that would allow, starting July 1, 2023, undocumented/illegal immigrants to apply for a Massachusetts standard driver’s license. The legislation requires an applicant “without legal presence” in the United States to provide the Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) with a foreign passport and at least one of fi ve other documents: a driver’s license from another state, a foreign driver’s license, a birth certifi cate, a foreign national identifi cation card or a marriage certificate or divorce decree from any U.S. state. “I cannot sign this legislation because it requires the Registry of Motor Vehicles to issue state credentials to people without the ability to verify their identity,” Baker had said in his veto message. “The Registry does not have the expertise or ability to verify the validity of many types of documents from other countries. The bill also fails to include any measures to distinguish standard Massachusetts driver’s licenses issued to persons who demonstrate lawful presence from those who don’t.” “By making driver’s licenses accessible to individuals regardless of immigration status, Massachusetts will take a strong step to both strengthen our economy and strengthen relations between immigrants and law enforcement,” said Elizabeth Sweet, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Immigrant and Refugee Advocacy Coalition. “This is a victory for all, making our roads safer and allowing the 185,000 immigrants without status the ability to earn a driver’s license,” said sponsor Sen. Brendan Crighton (D-Lynn). “No one should fear deportation over essential everyday tasks, such as getting to work, school, doctor’s appointment and grocery stores.” “We all know the many issues our commonwealth’s RMV has had,” said Sen. John Velis (DWestfi eld), an opponent of the proposal. “Just this week it was announced that 53,000 licenses sent out were missing a key fraud protection feature and will need to be replaced. My vote has nothing to do with immigration and has everything to do with the enormous ask we are making on an already underfunded and understaff ed RMV. I remain concerned that RMV employees will be now tasked with reviewing hundreds of additional foreign documents, in hundreds of diff erent languages and formats, without any additional funding or training.” “This commonsense legislation will improve safety for all on our roads, and ensure all drivers are licensed, registered and insured … This bill has broad support from numerous members of law enforcement, local faith and business leaders and immigrant communities statewide,” said Rep. Christine Barber (D-Somerville), a co-sponsor of the measure. Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) said, “I do not support this legislation as I believe it disincentivizes the individual from pursuing citizenship through legal means … This bill does not provide a clear distinction on the driver’s licenses between an unlawfully present individual and a U.S. citizen nor does it permit the RMV to share the citizenship information with municipalities that are entrusted to register only U.S. citizens to vote. Without these protections, the chances that these individuals will be able to register to vote increases.” Co-sponsor Rep. Tricia FarleyBouvier (D-Pittsfield) said she was disappointed that the governor is spreading misinformation about voting access when he well knows the strong safeguards that are already in place. “Gov. Baker’s own RMV has been processing driver’s licenses for years for those already eligible to drive but ineligible to vote such as 16- and 17-year-olds, people with green cards and student and worker visas … Sixteen other states have implemented similar laws already and have seen improved safety on roads with no issues related to voting.” “Despite the record high overcollection of Massachusetts tax dollars being available to provide some kind of relief to families struggling with infl ation and high prices, the speaker is prioritizing giving illegal immigrants driver’s licenses over Gov. Baker’s warnings that it will most likely lead to voter fraud,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. “Just because the speaker was able to twist arms and override the governor’s veto, doesn’t mean these House members will be off the hook. With the vote taken, they will now have to face their constituents and explain why they follow their speaker’s orders instead of their constituents’ opinions.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Ye s Rep. Jeff Turco N o Sen. Lydia Edwards Ye s ELECTION LAW CHANGES (S 2924) Senate 37-3, approved and sent to the House a conference committee version of a bill making permanent the mail-in and early voting options used in Massachusetts in 2020 during the COVID-19 pandemic. The House and Senate had approved diff erent versions of the bill and a conference committee hammered out this compromise version which did not include the section allowing same day voter registration that was in the Senate version but not in the House one. The measure requires the secretary of state to send out mail-in ballot applications, with return postage guaranteed, to registered voters before each presidential primary, state primary and biennial state election. It also allows registered voters to request a mail-in ballot for all elections in a single calendar year. Other provisions include reducing the registration blackout period from 20 days prior to an election to 10 days; electronic voting options for voters with disabilities and military service members; allowing a voter with disabilities to request accommodations including an accessible electronic ballot application, ballot and voter affi davit that can be submitted electronically; ensuring that non-felons who are incarcerated who are currently eligible to vote are provided with voting information and materials to exercise their right to vote; mandating that felons who are incarcerated but prohibited from voting are notifi ed of their right to vote upon release and given the opportunity to fi ll out a voter registration form; and requiring the secretary of state to conduct a comprehensive public awareness campaign to publicize the new voting and registration options. “This landmark election reform bill will empower voters and strengthen our democracy,” said Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover), Senate Chair of the Committee on Election Laws and the co-sponsor of the bill. “In 2020, mail-in and early voting options helped generate record-breaking turnout. It is now time to build on this progress and enact long-lasting voting reforms. The [bill] is a big step in the right direction and will help ensure that every voter can exercise their fundamental right to vote.” “I am so proud that at a time when access to the ballot is under attack in states nationwide, Massachusetts is passing landmark voting reforms to permanently enshrine expansions to voting access in statute and further underscore the Commonwealth’s commitment to ensuring all eligible voters can exercise their right to vote,” said Senate Majority Leader Sen. Cindy Creem (D-Newton). “Although I am disappointed same-day registration was not included in the fi nal bill, even with the Senate offering multiple compromise approaches, I will continue to push for its passage and plan to fi le legislation on the subject going forward.” Opponents saythe bill goes too far and does not provide suffi cient safeguards to protect the integrity of the voting process. They argued that universal mail in voting was designed solely to protect voters during the pandemic. They argued that continuing this forever would cost far too much for smaller towns Despite repeated attempts by Beacon Hill Roll Call, none of the three Republican senators who voted against the bill responded to requests for a comment on the reason they voted “No.” The three non-responsive senators are: Sens. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester), Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) and Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it). Sen. Lydia Edwards Ye s REQUIRE CERTIFICATION FOR TECHNICIANS WHO STERILIZE AND MAINTAIN HOSPITAL SURGICAL EQUIPMENT (S 2913) Senate 39-0, approved and sent to the House a measure that requires standardized certifi cation of an estimated 1,800 Bay State hospital technicians, by a nationally accredited organization, of hospital technicians who are responsible for ensuring that surgical instruments are safe and sanitary to protect patients from possible infection. The measure ALSO UP ON BEACON HILL $350 MILLION FOR ROADS AND BRIDGES AND MORE (H 4638) – The Senate approved a House-approved $350 million package that includes authorizing $200 million in one-time funding for the maintenance and repair of local roads and bridges in cities and towns across the state to be distributed under the Chapter 90 program formula. Only fi nal House and Senate approval are needed prior to the measure going to the governor. The package, a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds, also includes $150 million to pay for bus lanes, improvement of public transit, electric vehicles and other state transportation projects. “The commonwealth’s overall transportation system relies on the health of our roads, bridges, and other critical infrastructure,” said Sen. Brendan Crighton (DLynn), chair of the Senate Committee on Transportation. “The bill … represents a $350 million investment that will help cities and towns make the improvements they need so that residents can travel safely and effi - ciently.” BEACON | SEE Page 19 also requires the technicians to complete an annual continuing education curriculum. It was fi led as a response to several high-profi le incidents across the state in which surgical tools used in operations on patients may have been improperly disinfected. Supporters said that technicians are currently allowed to work with a high school diploma or equivalent degree and without additional relevant training, despite being required to keep up to date with the latest practices for over 37,000 diff erent surgical instruments. “As a world leader in the healthcare industry, Massachusetts must maintain the highest standards of patient safety,” said sponsor Sen. Mike Rush (D-West Roxbury). “I’m proud of the work my colleagues in the Senate and I have done today to protect the citizens of the commonwealth as well as those who come from around the globe to seek treatment.” “[These] technicians play an unseen but vital role for patients undergoing surgery,” said Sen. Jo Comerford (D-Northampton), Senate chair of the Committee on Public Health. “They are responsible for ensuring that equipment and instruments used during surgical procedures are properly decontaminated, cleaned, inspected and sterilized prior to patient use. Every day, thousands of Bay Staters rely on them doing their job with perfection.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Sen. Lydia Edwards Ye s

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 19 MVES Commits To Justice on World Elder Abuse Awareness Day MALDEN — June 15 marks World Elder Abuse Awareness Day, a time to bring attention to this critical issue aff ecting older adults worldwide. Elder abuse can include physical, emotional, sexual, caregiver neglect, selfneglect, and fi nancial exploitation. It impacts seniors from all walks of life. The International Network for the Prevention of Elder Abuse and the World Health OrganizaBEACON | FROM Page 18 Geoff Beckwith, the executive director of the Massachusetts Municipal Association, is one of the biggest advocates for increased Chapter 90 funding. “With the local road construction season underway, passage of the Chapter 90 bond bill is an important priority so that communities can maximize the number of projects that can be completed this year,” said Beckwith. Many local offi cials across the state continue to advocate for additional money to increase the funding and argue that the cost of repairing roads has increased by up to 40 percent while the state has kept this funding fl at at $200 million for the past 11 years. EXPANDED USE OF MEDICAL MARIJUANA (H 4537) – A bill that would add Post Traumatic Stress Disorder (PTSD) and opioid use disorder to the current list of conditions for which a doctor could prescribe medical marijuana, is stuck in the Committee on Health Care Financing which gave it a favorable report on March 24. The bill is a redrafted diff erent version of an earlier bill, sponsored by Rep. Michael Soter (R-Bellingham), designed to expand access to medical marijuana for veterans. “This legislation is the result of a collaboration with a constituent of mine, Stephen Mandile, who is a veteran, local elected offi cial and father,” said Soter. “The initial intent of the bill was to expand access to medical marijuana for veterans. However, I am disappointed to say that specific veteran-related pieces of the original bill were removed during the committee process, the scope of the bill has changed and the current language works to benefi t a broader population while straying away from the initial intent of a strong veterancentric bill. Beacon Hill Roll Call asked Soter several times whether he supports the new version of the bill since his version is now essentially dead. Soter’s “non-answer” came from his chief of staff Eric Eisner. ““The representative stattion at the United Nations (UN) launched the first World Elder Abuse Awareness Day (WEAAD) on June 15, 2006 in an eff ort to unite communities around the world in raising awareness about elder abuse. WEAAD serves as a call-to-action for our communities to raise awareness about abuse, neglect, and exploitation of elders, and reaffi rm our country’s commitment to the principle of justice for all. ed that he is disappointed that the veteran-centric language within the bill has been stripped out during the committee process,” said Eisner. Further, this is not the fi rst session that this legislation has been presented. “ SEVERAL BILLS ON THEIR WAY TO A “STUDY” COMMITTEE – The Committee on Cannabis Policy recommended that several bills be shipped off to a study committee where bills are rarely actually studied and are essentially defeated. It is a way to kill a proposal without holding a vote on the bill itself. Here are some of the bills that will soon be sent off to a study committee: PREVENT YOUTH SUBSTANCE ABUSE (S78) – Would direct 1 percent of the state tax revenue generated from the cannabis excise tax toward a fund that would be responsible for supporting programs dedicated to prevention of youth substance use. “A report released this week by the Department of Public Health indicated the rate of opioid-related overdose deaths increased 8.8 percent in 2021 compared to 2020,” said sponsor Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth). “With the continued rise in substance use deaths, I believe we need to provide as much support as possible to ensure we do not lose any more of our neighbors. The state currently financially benefits a great deal from the legalization of cannabis, and I believe this legislation provides us with an opportunity to educate young people on the dangers of addiction. I am looking forward to fi ling the bill again next session.” PROHIBIT TESTING FOR MARIJUANA USE WITHOUT CONSENT (H 4026) – Would prohibit doctors and health care facilities from testing a patient for the presence of marijuana without fi rst obtaining written consent from the patient. If written consent is given, the measure prohibits the release of the results to anyone except for the patient unless the patient gives written consent. Sponsor Rep. Russell Holmes (D-Boston) said he fi led the bill after hearing from a constituent who was tested for marijuana, without her consent, by her Elder abuse is widespread. Every year an estimated 1 in 10 older Americans are victims of elder abuse, neglect, or exploitation. And that’s only part of the picture: Experts believe that elder abuse is signifi cantly under-reported, in part because so many of our communities lack the social supports that would make it easier for those who experience abuse to report it. Research suggests that as few as 1 in 14 cases primary care physician during a routine physical that included standard urine and blood work. Holmes noted she was under federal probation and marijuana, while legal in Massachusetts, is still prohibited federally and a positive test could have forced her again away from her family and back to federal prison. “My constituent changed her primary care physician because she could no longer trust her,” said Holmes. “That was the only recourse she had. The bill will be filed again next term because more protection is needed.” FINE FOR OPEN CONTAINER OF MARIJUANA IN VEHICLE (H 149) – Would apply the current alcohol open container law to marijuana. This would impose a $100 to $500 civil penalty on anyone who is driving with an open container of marijuana or any marijuana products in the passenger area of a motor vehicle. Sponsor Rep. Shawn Dooley (R-Norfolk) said the bill doesn’t criminalize anything but it simply imposes a civil fi ne—the same as having an open container of beer. He noted that police have a very hard time enforcing impaired driving under the infl uence of marijuana use due to lack of a Breathalyzer-type test. “As dispensaries become more popular and accessible—there will naturally be more of a chance for use while driving,” said Dooley. “And while I believe the vast majority of users are responsible—this is meant to hopefully incentivize those few who might partake while driving— just like with alcohol to not do it and wait till they are not behind the wheel.” of elder abuse come to the attention of authorities. Mystic Valley Elder Services Protective Services Department plays a proactive role in addressing elder abuse by not only investigating cases but by proactively off ering education and trainings in the 11 communities served. MVES has developed a strong rapport with mandated reporters of elder abuse such as police offi cers and hospitals. The agency QUOTABLE QUOTES “I think on this matter I will turn it over to [Sen. Brendan Crighton] the real expert on this subject matter, the gentleman from Lynn, the Senate chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation. Because he truly is the expert on this and so many other issues before this body.” ---Ways and Means chair Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) when asked during fl oor debate to comment on the bill providing $350 million for local roads and bridges and other transportation projects. “I want to say thank you to the chair of Ways and Means for his very kind and exaggerated remarks.” ---Sen. Crighton responding to Sen. Rodrigues. “I’m finding I’m being introduced these days in the past tense, which is actually a little nerve-wracking. But I suspect the closer we get to January, the more it’s going to sound that way.” ---Gov. Baker who is not seeking re-election and will leave the governor’s offi ce in January. “I’m not going to go away quietly, and I’m certainly not going to -- I am not going to retire. My wife would never let me. That would cause all kinds of issues. I think I’ll end up doing a bunch of diff erent things. Some of them will be related to government, some will be related to traditional private sector-type stuff .” ---Gov. Baker on his future plans. HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION?

Over the past year, Callahan said, the department completed a review and update of 80 percent of its policies and procedures as part of the effort to keep in line with the police reform law passed in 2020.

The department purchased 10 solar-powered speed signs to help assist with speeding issues in thickly settled neighborhoods. “This is a constant problem we have in the city, and it seems like it’s not just here in Revere; we are all fl ooded with the same complaints,” Callahan said. Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky advocated for more of the speed signs in his neighborhood, noting he has asked for them for several years and still only has one in his ward. Other highlights of the past year according to the chief include the upgrading of twoway radios to digital units with improved coverage, and expansion of the Police Athletic League programs for the city’s youths. The department is also in the process of releasing a new app that includes a 411 anonymous tip line. “I think that will be very benefi cial to the city and the Police Department,” said Callahan. “I spoke to other cities near us that have it, and they said it has been very successful for getting information about some very serious crimes.” In FY23, Callahan said, the department’s top goal is to continue with the implementation of a new use of force policy which will create separate documentation for each use of force incident. “The objective is to increase offi cer accountability and transparency and provide better and more accurate documentation of use of force incidents by offi cers,” said Callahan. Other goals for FY23 include expanded crisis intervention training for officers and the creation of a new behavioral health unit within the Police Department. The long-term goal of the unit is to increase an equitable approach to public safety and public health outcomes. The department will hire for three civilian positions to staff the new unit – a public safety case worker, a program coordinator and a behavioral health clinician. “We have a lot of public health issues with homelessness, substance abuse and people with mental health issues that may not be getting addressed,” said Callahan. “We are hoping to get help for people in need and navigate them to the resources they need.” City Council President Gerry Visconti asked about the department’s current staffi ng levels and if Callahan believes there is a need for more school resource offi cers. Callahan said he would like to see the department come up to a full complement of 110 active duty offi cers from the approximately 102 on the roster now. However, Callahan noted that because of problems with getting recruits into the police academy and a lower interest in the position than in the past, it has been diffi cult to hire new offi cers. He also agreed that there is likely a need for at least one or two more school resource offi cers. ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS...Beautiful 8 room Split Entry Ranch                                                                                                                             View the interior of this home right on your smartphone.       OBITUARIES Paul Collins July 10, 1953 - June 10, 202 erett.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 17, 2022 Page 21 FUNDING | FROM Page 1 of concern for city councillors when Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly presented the School Department budget to the Ways and Means Subcommittee last week. Over the past two weeks, the City Council subcommittee has been hearing from every department in preparation for a fi - nal vote on Mayor Brian Arrigo’s proposed FY23 $240 million operating budget. The school budget is the biggest chunk of the overall budget, with the Revere School Department fi guring coming in at about $108 million. While the rising transportation costs have been an issue for districts across the state, Kelly pointed to a number of positives in the FY23 budget. “One of the things that have been helpful to the School Department is the Student Opportunity Act, and for the second year in a row, that has put us in a relatively stable place fi nancially, along with pandemic stimulus funds,” said Kelly. “It’s really been a game-changer for us over the past couple of years, and we’ve been able to use the money to right-size our staff , because we have been understaff ed for a very long time.” The additional funds have also allowed the School Department to upgrade its technology, provide appropriate supplemental services for its students and purchase new instructional tools. “We’re very excited for the coming school year,” said Kelly. “Our major additions for this year’s budget include increases in our staffi ng for English language learners.” The School Department is also reintroducing two new positions that have not been in the district for a number of years – a fi ne arts director and a comprehensive health and wellness director. “We have also added a number of interventionist teachers who will be providing tier 1 support for students who are struggling to get up to grade level academically,” said Kelly. The biggest swing in the budget was with transportation, a trend that Kelly said has been ongoing for the past several years. Kelly said the increases are not unique to Revere and are due in part to lower staff levels and a lack of competition among transportation companies. Kelly said the School Department is working with the City of Revere and its Finance Director, Richard Viscay, to help address issues with the transportation budget. City Council President Gerry Visconti said he understands the city is responsible to pay for the transportation costs, but noted that the costs are about $2.5 million over budget. “My problem is it aff ects quite a bit of residents and homeowners who do not have kids in the school system,” said Visconti. Visconti asked if there is a way more federal pandemic relief funds could be used to help cover some of those transportation costs. Kelly said the School Department is allowed to use some of that funding to address the transportation costs. She also pointed to other steps the schools have taken, including switching to small buses rather than vans to transport special needs students in the district. Kelly said that move alone saved nearly $500,000. Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe asked if the district would look into an internal transportation system, rather than contracting out most of the service. Kelly said the schools looked into that fi ve or six years ago and the costs were prohibitive. However, she said, with rising costs, the district would continue to look at all options. Keefe said the schools could possibly use some of the pandemic relief funds to help with startup costs. “I’d like to think we could operate a small city transportation department,” he said. MISSION | FROM Page 3 up!” It may be why my father was never a big sports fan. He had gone on to other provocations. I proved to be enough of a challenge. On my wedding day, when he gave me away, I was never sure whose special day it really was. There wasn’t a trophy or tee-shirt or award of any kind that could trump that moment. He knew he never actually gave me away. I think perhaps a father’s love is quiet and not always as obvious as a Mother’s might be. A Father’s love is more of a reverberation that comes to you later on in the everyday happenings of your life. Father’s Day is a perfect time to not only remember who your Father was or is, but who you are on ordinary days because of him. I think that maybe the best tribute of all I could give my Dad is that through all the ups and downs of my life, I never felt like a loser. Game point!
