(Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) Councillors call for muscle at meetings By Barbara Taormina D espite concerns about cost and public perception, the City Council seemed inclined to support Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna’s proposal to provide security for the council once City Hall reopens and live meetings return to the Revere City Council Chambers. McKenna introduced her proposal and followed up with a story about a Revere resident who threatened Boston Mayor Marty Walsh and Governor Charlie Baker in a post on his Facebook page. “The incident was so serious, police tracked him down and now he’s in jail,” said McKenna. Security measures – such as metal detectors, check-in points and identifi cation checks – are JOANNE McKENNA Ward 1 Councillor in place at the Statehouse, in schools and in other public and civic buildings, she said. “After hours in City Hall anyone can come upstairs, and there’s no stopping them if they want to take some kind of action,” said RICHARD SERINO Ward 6 Councillor McKenna, adding that a security guard or police offi cer could keep the council safe. “I know this has been said before, but we were in diff erent circumstances then,” said McKenna. “Now we are in serious times. Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino, who co-sponsored the proposal, works at the Statehouse, and he is grateful for the security in that building. “We live in a really messed up world,” said Serino. “In 2020 we should have a security guard or an armed police offi cer for the council because crazy things can happen, and if they can be prevented, they should be.” SECURITY | SEE PAGE 15 $1.55 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

Nearby, the words “white power” were spray-painted on the street. Police are investigating, and the FBI, the civil rights division of the U.S. Attorney’s Offi ce and the Massachusetts Attorney General’s offi ce have been asked to assist with the case. Over the weekend, Mayor Brian Arrigo said hate will not be allowed in the city in a statement responding to the crime. “Those who are responsible have no place here – they do not represent our people or the strong community of immigrants and diversity of people in race, culture and gender identity and we must continue our work together toward an anti-racist Revere,” said Arrigo. At their meeting last Monday, city councillors joined together to support Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino’s motion that condemned the hate crime and called on the community to stand up and denounce atrocious acts of racism. “I was sick to my stomach when I saw what took place on Lantern Road in my ward,” said Serino. “Sadly, racism is alive and well in Revere.” Serino said residents need to recognize that racism is a problem in the city. “We need to call it out when we see it, and heal the divisions within our city,” he added. City Council President Patrick Keefe asked anyone who might have video footage of the area to share it with police to help with the investigation. “This shames us all, and it’s not something we want to be associated with,” he said. Councillor-at-Large Jessica Giannino said she was appalled when she saw photos of the vandalism. “I agree with Councillor Serino that the fi rst thing we need to do is acknowledge there is a problem in our city,” said Giannino, adding that Revere’s young people have been focusing attention on racism within the city. City Council Vice President Ira Novoselsky said the despicable act of hate targeted toward a Muslim family had a profound eff ect on his family, who are descendants of victims who were murdered in gas chambers by the Nazis. “I know what hatred and evil are; I know what prejudice is, and I have chosen to live my life fi ghting against hatred,” said Novoselsky, who questioned when the hate and evil will stop and when will people RACISM | SEE PAGE 13 DRIVER EDUCATION Our 81st Year Next Classes

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 Page 3 Mayor Arrigo and Revere Board of Health Declare Racism a Public Health Crisis Declaration builds on ongoing racial justice initiatives and new policies to support anti-racism in Revere REVERE - Mayor Brian Arrigo this week was joined by Dr. Nathalee Kong, Chair of the Revere Board of Health, and Dimple Rana, Director of Healthy Community Initiatives, to declare racism a public health crisis in the city of Revere, creating renewed urgency and paving the way for additional funding to address social determinants of health and racial equity, including behavioral health, housing stability and economic mobility. The announcement comes in support of the antiracism rally planned for Friday, June 26. “We have all witnessed very clearly how COVID-19 disproportionately impacts communities of color. Unfortunately, among the medical community, these realities are not new. Study after study shows that Black Americans experience greater rates of diabetes, kidney failure and heart disease, and still more show how they receive inferior care in comparison to their white counterparts,” Dr. Nathalee Kong, Chair of the ReBRIAN ARRIGO Mayor vere Board of Health. “We must all focus our efforts on eliminating the systemic racism that leads to the sharp inequities in health outcomes for communities of color. Over the past several months I have seen fi rsthand the strength of this city, and I know that together we can rise to meet this challenge.” In 2019, the City of Revere parA.B.C.

Among its fi ndings, the assessment identifi ed signifi cant racial and ethnic disparities in chronic conditions that result in higher mortality rates in Revere as compared to the state’s average. Behavioral health, housing stability and economic mobility were the three priority areas identifi ed as greatest needs for additional support and resources. “My team and I have worked diligently over the past several years to dedicate resources and establish programs and partnerships that will address the social determinants of health that result in inequity in our city. We know there is more work to be done, with more urgency, as we see disproportionate impacts this pandemic is having on communities of color, and the continued violence and systemic racism perpetuated against Black residents in particular,” Mayor Arrigo said. Today’s declaration builds on ongoing racial justice initiatives and new policies to support anti-racism in Revere, including the reinstatement of the City’s Human Rights Commission and Appointment of its Executive Director. Mayor Arrigo has recommended Dimple Rana’s appointment as executive director of the Human Rights Commission to the Revere City Council, which will vote on the proposal on Monday, June 29.

As of June 25, the Revere Board of Health had been notifi ed by the Massachusetts Department of Public Health of 1,786 positive cases of COVID-19 in Revere. The city is averaging 3.4 new cases per week. As Massachusetts’s phased reopening plan continues to progress and key metrics continue to trend downward, the City of Revere is urging residents, especially residents over the age of 65 and those with chronic conditions, to remain vigilant, stay safer at home and wear a mask and practice social distancing when away from home. “We're grateful to all our residents for doing their part to get our numbers down to where they are today. We have to continue to be smart if we want reopening to progress further and avoid situations we are seeing in other states where cases are now reaching new highs,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “We are looking forward to providing programming that supports a safe and healthy summer, and we need everyone to keep doing their part.” On Thursday, Revere Parks and Recreation released its Summer 2020 Program offerings. Through hard work and ongoing collaboration with the Revere Board of Health, Parks & Rec has developed off erings to create a safe and healthy environment for summer activities, while engaging young people with in-person programming. Many of the summer activities have a maximum occupancy of 10 and will take place outside whenever possible. Other safety precautions and guidelines specifi c to certain activities are available in the 2020 Summer Program guide, which is available at www.revererec.org.

To date, more than 200 tests have been administered at two facilities in the city. Testing is being made available on-site to all residents who would like to be tested, and visits are being coordinated in collaboration with individual management entities. Mobile testing helps to proactively identify and isolate asymptomatic individuals and monitor trends.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 ~ OP-ED ~ A War Against Ignorance By Mayor Brian M. Arrigo A silent and sinister affl iction threatens our city. We wish it weren’t so, and we mobilize our municipal resources to fi ght it. It is a battle we must win, and it will take everyone’s cooperative eff ort to eradicate it from our midst, regardless how isolated I pray it is. I speak not of Covid-19, but of ignorance. On the morning of June 11 on Lantern Road in our city, we witnessed its latest manifestation when a car was vandalized with spray-painted swastikas and the words “white power” soiled the street. The police characterize it as a “hate crime” and rightfully so. When the perpetrator is identifi ed and brought into custody, our law enforcement community will exert the full extent of punishment. But I am neither a police offi - cer nor a law enforcement offi - cial. I am a Mayor of a city that boasts a widely diverse population of hardworking and cooperative people who look out for and take care of each other no matter their race, color, or orientation. And so when I see what happened on Lantern Road, I call it racism and a crime of sheer ignorance. And I am both infuriated and saddened at the depth of ignorance that can motivate such a hideous act. • It is an act of ignorance because the criminal who wielded the can of paint has no clue about the good and wholesome people whose lives are terrorized by such a cowardly act. Nationality or color or ethnic background all blend when people work to provide a fulfi lling life for themselves and their families. • When a person cannot understand that basic tenet of human life, and attacks the sanctity of a neighborhood in the dark of night with such a vulgar act of racist vandalism, that person is not only hateful; that person is ignorant. • It is an act of ignorance because the criminal who wielded the can of paint has no clue about sordid symbolism of the swastika.

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 Mystic Valley Regional Charter School first in Mass. to cancel football season First school in state to punt away season, despite opener still three months away By Steve Freker A Malden school has become the fi rst in Massachusetts to punt away its football season due to the COVID-19 pandemic. They were the very fi rst charter school to put down roots in the greater Boston community, over 20 years ago, when the doors swung open on Laurel Street at the former Maplewood Elementary School. Since then the Mystic Valley Regional Charter School has had plenty of other fi rsts. The latest one came in mid-March when Mystic Valley became the fi rst school in the state to announce a cancellation of classes due to the coronavirus. That announcement was made way back on March 5, a full week before a global pandemic was declared by the World Health Organization (WHO), and 11 days ahead of Governor Baker's order closing all schools in Mass. until at least early April. First school in state to cancel football This week it happened again when it was learned that the Mystic Valley administration canceled the upcoming football season, the fi rst of over 300 high school teams in all of Massachusetts to do so, citing concerns over COVID-19. According to news reports published online, a statement released by Mystic Valley Superintendent Alexander Dan cited a survey conducted this spring "showed only 16 parents of players who participated in the school’s football program last year felt comfortable making a commitment to varsity football for the fall season." This led to the administration’s deciand fall sports in general, before deciding on how to proceed. No other school in Massachusetts had announced any decisions on fall sports to date, Mystic Valley being the fi rst. Behind the scenes, a number of athletic directors and fall coaches have speculated about the potential risks of fall sports like football and soccer and the close contact involved with both, in practices and games. Cross country teams and their close group running has also been cited as a potential risk, along with girls fi eld hockey. Another fall sport is girls’ volleyball, played in close quarters and indoors. Mystic Valley second-year head coach Danny Kelly was he was surprised and disheartened by the decision to cancel the season this early, in June. In an online report, the Eagles coach said he found out Saturday, but had to keep it to himself until school families were informed. Season taken away three months in TIME OUT: Mystic Valley football coach Danny Kelly and last year’s Eagle football captains. Word was out this week that Mystic Valley decided to cancel this fall’s football season.

According to reports, the school distributed a letter to student-athletes via social media announcing the decision to cut football for 2020, despite the season-opening kickoff being about three months away.

Move is made before any MIAA decisions Also, the move was made in advance of any guidance for fall sports emanating from the overseer of high school athletics, the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA). High school athletic directors and principals have been anxiously awaiting news from the MIAA regarding football advance “It’s one thing if the MIAA said there was no season, we’d be OK with that. But to have this taken away from them when the season is still three months away was tough," Coach Kelly told a Boston newspaper in an online report. “We were just getting ready to start our off season conditioning program. Then I have to tell them that their season was over, it was taken away from them. It was not an easy thing to do, especially for the seniors." If Mystic Valley's decision proves to be a harbinger of what is to come and fall sports becomes a casualty of the coronavirus, it would become a painful, onetwo punch to high school sports, following the cancellation of spring sports season, announced in late April.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 Page 11 The North Shore Nav’s season is on! LYNN – The North Shore Navigators will be playing baseball this summer. The Futures Collegiate Baseball League has formally unveiled its plans to begin the 2020 season with a sixteam schedule on Thursday, July 2. Commissioner Joe Paolucci made the offi cial announcement on Monday. The Navs will open their season with one of the two Futures League games on the fi rst Thursday of July, making a short trip north to Historic Holman Stadium in Nashua, N.H., to face the nearby rival Silver Knights for the fi rst of 12 meetings between the teams this season. “We are beyond excited to get Navs baseball back at historic Fraser Field,” said Navs President Derek January. “Everyone involved from the league, from the ownership groups to front offi ce staff s, should be commended for working to get this season going. The Navs have collaborated with the City of Lynn to put together a great plan to keep everyone safe while enjoying a night at the park. We can’t thank Mayor Tom McGee, his staff and Rich Avery enough for working with us as the new ownership group of this great organization. We promise to make everyone proud both on and off the fi eld.” The Navs’ home opener at Lynn’s 80-year-old Fraser Field is set for Tuesday, July 7 against the defending and four-time league champion Worcester Bravehearts.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 City proposes rules for short-term rentals By Barbara Taormina M ayor Brian Arrigo outlined some of the key points of a proposed short-term rental ordinance in a letter sent to the City Council this week. “The objective of this ordinance is to give residents a reasonable opportunity to rent property short term while having a limited impact on the stock of available rental housing,” wrote Arrigo. “It also seeks to ensure that shortterm rentals will not be a detriment to the character and livability of the surrounding residential neighborhood.” The proposed ordinance would allow short-term rentals in owner-occupied multifamily homes of up to four units and in single-family homes that are the primary residences of the short-term rental operators. Condos in a building where the operator has his or her primary address can also be off ered as short-term rentals. Short-term rentals are capped at 60 days; operators must register their unit with the city’s Short-term Rental Registry and pay an annual fee of $200. “A number of councillors worked on the ordinance, including Councillor Guinasso, Councillor McKenna and myself,” said City Council President Patrick Keefe. “There were also CRISIS | FROM PAGE 3 on June 29 and I want to thank Mayor Arrigo for his leadership in standing up to hate and taking action in reactivating the Human Rights Commission,” said Dimple Rana, Director of Healthy Community Initiatives lots of contributions from the rest of the council. I know this will have a lot of lengthy discussion and it’s going to a public hearing on July 27.” Councillors whose wards have been fl ooded with shortterm rentals were pleased to see a proposal on the table. “There’s been a lot of great work done by councillors to get us to this point,” said Arrigo, who took part in this week’s council meeting. “This is long overdue,” said Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino. “I’m glad to see it’s coming together, and I look forward to diving into it and having more discussion.” Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna said the city would need to watch for people who advertised rentals without registering them with the city. She said there is software available to track advertisements, registrations and other types of data. “If we are going to take this seriously, we are going to need something like that,” said Keefe. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo agreed that without proper software enforcing the ordinance would be a challenge. Rotondo also asked if any thought had been given to approaching major short-term rental agencies, such as Airbnb, Vacation Rentals by Owners, for the City of Revere. “The reactivation of the commission, together with today’s declaration of racism as a public health crisis, mark signifi cant milestones in our ongoing efforts to achieve racial equity in our city. Our work to address racial and health disparities Senior Citizen Work-Off aka VRBO, and Home Away, in the spirit of cooperation. “Have we thought of saying ‘We want you to come to Revere; we want to be a partner with you; here’s our ordinance?’” he asked. Keefe agreed that the city wants to work with the agencies rather than having rental companies work around the ordinance. A business partnership seems appropriate since short-term rentals could generate a significant stream of new revenue for the city. In addition to the annual $200 registration fee, there are inspection fees, excise taxes and community mitigation fees set by the council. And there is a proposed $300-a-day fi ne for anyone who violates the ordinance. Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso said he was thrilled to see Arrigo’s letter of support that addressed a lot of the concerns raised by councillors. “I can’t stress the urgency of getting this program in play, no matter what shortfalls it may have,” said Guinasso, who added that councillors can improve the ordinance as it moves forward. “We have to have something on the books because my neighborhood is a disgrace,” added Guinasso. “I don’t have a neighborhood anymore – I have all hotels. Everyone is renting rooms.” has been underway for years, with much more to be done. In all of these eff orts we will pursue a continuum of community engagement as we work together to eliminate the pervasive racial inequities that exist throughout our society and in our city.” Abatement Program FY 2021 M ayor Brian Arrigo is pleased to announce that the City of Revere will accept applications for the Senior Citizen Work-off Abatement Program beginning July 1. This program provides the opportunity for 50 seniors to work for a $750 property tax reduction and another 50 seniors to work for a $500 water bill credit. The program will off er qualifi ed seniors the opportunity to contribute 62.5 hours throughout various city departments for property tax abatements or 41.5 hours for water bill credits. However, currently the COVID-19 public health crisis leaves the scope of the work for this year’s program uncertain. “While we certainly hope that we will be able to implement a full semblance of our annual Work-off program, we will be guided strictly by the status of coronavirus in our community and will abide the informed advice of our public health offi cials,” said Mayor Arrigo. “Our residents’ health is our primary concern, and we will be extra cautious as we develop the details of this year’s program.” Nonetheless, Mayor Arrigo wants the program ready to go if public health concerns are addressed – “We will follow our usual application and selection procedures, and then react accordingly to whatever extent we can to actually implement the program.” In order to qualify, Revere residents must be at least 60 years of age and the assessed owner of the property, and the income limit has been raised to $77,408 for individual applicants and $94,580 for married applicants. Residents will be required to provide a copy of one of the following: birth certifi cate, driver’s license or passport. A lottery shall be conducted on August 21 at 11:00 a.m. (tentative date) to determine which applicants participate in the property tax or water abatement portion of the program. Applications will be available on revere.org/FY21-senior-workoff -program and in the Mayor’s Office when municipal buildings reopen. Applications can be dropped off or mailed to Revere City Hall. Additionally, applicants can send their completed applications electronically via email to revere_mayor@revere.org. Residents will be notifi ed by mail if they have been selected for the Fiscal Year (FY) 2021 program.

IGNORANCE | FROM PAGE 8 War II, a confl ict that claimed nearly 75 million lives that included millions of civilians who lost their lives to genocide, massacres, and disease. A person who today paints a swastika as some sort of ill-conceived statement is not only hateful; that person is ignorant. • It is ignorant to bellow “white power” when our greatest power, our greatest strength, evolves from the united force of all our people working as one to elevate our discourse and foster our brotherhood and sisterhood toward mutual prosperity and societal security. A person who defi es the power of cultural harmony is not only hateful; that person is ignorant. • And it is an act of ignorance because the criminal who wielded the can of paint has no clue about the resolve and tight bonds that make the people of our city protective of each other. The act on Lantern Road has outraged our population, and their collective eyes and ears will eventually lead law enforcement to the sorry source of this atrocity. When Covid-19 made its unwelcome invasion into our neighborhoods, essential workers, fi rst responders, volunteers and compassionate people paid no attention to color and nationality and ethnic background as they joined forces to protect and help each other and suppress the peril. That is the Revere I am proud to lead. And that is the Revere that will prevail to expunge our community of the vile and obnoxious acts of ignorance that desecrate the City that we proudly call our hometown. We will never tolerate the ignorance that breeds racism, and we will commit our relentless energy to crush it.

Chelsea man pleads guilty; sentenced for bank robbery BOSTON – A Chelsea man pleaded guilty and was sentenced on Friday, June 19, 2020, for the September 2019 robbery of a branch of TD Bank in Chelsea. Edward Robert Rezendes, 66, pleaded guilty to one count of bank robbery. After accepting Rezendes’s guilty plea, U.S. District Court Judge Nathaniel M. Gorton sentenced him to time served (approximately 10 months in prison) and three years of supervised release. Rezendes, who was on probation for an unrelated bank robbery at the time RACISM | FROM PAGE 1 learn to respect one another and live together in peace. “As far as I am concerned, the time is right now,” he added. But organizers of Friday’s rally suggested that the statements from city leaders condemning racism and hate were too little too late. They criticized the city’s lack of transparency about the crime and suggested the delayed public responses from city offi cials came only after the story was covered by local news outlets. Revere resident and activist of the off ense, had been indicted by a federal grand jury in November 2019. On September 10, 2019, Rezendes entered the TD Bank branch in Chelsea and wrote a demand note on the back of a deposit slip. He then presented the note to a bank teller, who removed approximately $3,670 in cash from her drawer, placed it in a clear plastic bag and handed it to Rezendes, who exited the bank and boarded an MBTA bus. Shortly thereafter, Rezendes was located, apprehended and Katherine Occena criticized the Revere police for calling the vandalism a “possible hate crime.” “Name it. Call it out. It's a racist attack against groups of people. Full stop. It’s a hate crime,” she said. Other leaders of the city’s racial and ethnic communities said it is time to unite and confront systemic racism in Revere. “Everyone of color in this city has a story regarding racism,” said MACIR President Rashid Moukhabir. “No one should have to live in fear of becoming a victim of these hate crimes. We should give these people a voice, found in possession of the plastic bag containing the stolen currency, a GPS tracking device that had been embedded in the stolen currency, and the demand note, which had also been handed back to the defendant. United States Attorney Andrew E. Lelling; the FBI’s Special Agent in Charge of the Boston Field Division, Joseph R. Bonavolonta; and Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes made the announcement. Assistant U.S. Attorney Adam W. Deitch of Lelling’s Major Crimes Unit prosecuted the case. and all of us coming together will give one another confi dence to confront this hate.” Flyers for the rally asked residents to join the fi ght against white supremacy that has existed unchecked in the city for too long. The family that was the victim of the hate crime said it was the third time they have been attacked over the past nine months. They are being legally represented by the Council on American-Islamic Relations, which has off ered a $1,000 reward for information about the case. Why High Blood Pressure is Even More Dangerous in the COVID-19 Era Dear Savvy Senior, Are people with high blood pressure at increased risk of getting coronavirus? Hypertensive Helen Dear Helen, If you have high blood pressure, you definitely need to take extra care to protect yourself during the coronavirus (COVID-19) pandemic. Research shows that people with hypertension are more susceptible to getting COVID-19, are more likely to develop severe symptoms if they do get sick, and are more likely to die from the infection, especially if they’re older. High Risk Links A weaker immune system is the key reason people with high blood pressure and other health problems are at higher risk for coronavirus. Long-term health conditions and aging weaken the immune system so it’s less able to fi ght off the virus. Nearly two-thirds of Americans over 60 have high blood pressure. Another concern that has been circulating, but was put to rest last month, were theories that the medications that are commonly prescribed to treat high blood pressure – ACE inhibitors and angiotensin receptor blockers (ARBs) – could make patients more vulnerable to contracting COVID-19, and more susceptible to severe illness if they did become infected. But new research published in The New England Journal of Medicine last month found no risk linked to these medications. COVID Complications While pneumonia is the most common complication of the virus, it can also damage the cardiovascular system. That’s why people with high blood pressure, heart disease, and heart failure are at risk. High blood pressure damages arteries and reduces the fl ow of blood to your heart. That means your heart has to work harder to pump enough blood. Over time, this extra work can weaken your heart to the point where it can’t pump as much oxygenrich blood to your body. Coronavirus can also damage the heart directly, which can be especially risky if your heart is already weakened by the eff ects of high blood pressure. The virus may cause infl ammation of the heart muscle, which makes it harder for the heart to pump. If you also have plaque buildup in your arteries, the virus may make those plaques more likely to break apart and cause a heart attack. Studies have shown that people with heart disease who get a respiratory illness like the fl u or earlier types of coronavirus are at higher risk for a heart attack. What to Do? While everyone needs to take precautions to prevent coronavirus, people with high blood pressure and other health conditions need to be extra careful. The best way to avoid getting sick is to stay home as much as you can. If you have to go out, wear a mask and keep at least 6 feet away from other people. And every time you come home, wash your hands with warm water and soap for at least 20 seconds. Also, clean and disinfect all frequently touched surfaces like cell phones, countertops and doorknobs. The CDC also recommends that you have enough medicine on hand to treat high blood pressure and other health conditions. And stock up on overthe-counter medicines to treat a fever and other symptoms if you get sick. While a coronavirus vaccine isn’t available yet, you should stay up to date on your other important vaccines. The pneumococcal vaccines – Prevnar 13 and Pneumovax 23 – will prevent you from catching pneumonia on top of coronavirus. Also get a fl u shot in September or early October.

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JUNE 26, 2020 THE HOUSE AND SENATE: The House and Senate continued to hold remote sessions with just a few members in the chambers to avoid spreading the COVID-19. Most members watched and listened to the debate from their home or business offi ce through their computers and voted via phone. Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of June 15-19. There were no roll calls in the House last week. EXPAND VOTING (S 2755) Senate 40-0, approved a bill that would provide registered voters three options to cast a ballot in the September 1 primary and November 3 general election including extended early voting periods, voting in-person on Election Day and voting-by-mail. The House has already approved its own version of the bill. Last week, a sixmember conference committee made up of three senators and three representatives was appointed to hammer out a compromise version that would pass both branches. The Senate measure requires an application for a voter to request an early voting ballot for the September 1 primary election to be mailed by Secretary of State Bill Galvin to all registered voters by July 15, 2020. Galvin will then mail a separate application to vote by mail in the General Election along with the voter booklet sent out in the fall. Another key provision allows early voting for the September 1 primary to take place from Saturday, August 22 through Friday, August 28. Early voting for the November 3 general election would be available from Tuesday, October 17 to Friday, October 30. The measure also expands absentee voting by allowing any person taking precautions related to COVID-19 to vote absentee via secure drop boxes that will provide a sanitary drop-off method. Other provisions impose safety measures to be taken at the polls to prevent the spread of the virus to voters and poll workers; allow cities and towns to count vote totals prior to Election Day, provide pre-addressed envelopes for voters to return their applications for an early ballot; requires Secretary Galvin’s offi ce to create an online portal by October 1, 2020 to take some burden off the city and town clerk’s offi ces and make it as easy as possible for people to apply for General Election early voting ballots electronically. “Our goal with this legislation was to make it easier for people to exercise their fundamental democratic right to vote during these unprecedented times,” said Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover), the Senate chair of the Election Laws Committee. “This is the fi rst time in the history of the commonwealth that we are off ering early voting for primaries, sending out applications to vote by mail and counting ballots after Election Day.” MassVOTE Executive Director Cheryl Clyburn Crawford said while the organization is disappointed that voters will not automatically receive ballots this fall, she applauds the Senate for passing the legislation. “This Fall’s elections will undoubtedly prove challenging,” said Crawford. “Nevertheless, we believe the Senate bill passed today will provide local election offi cials the tools they need to run our elections this fall, while allowing voters to cast their ballot in a safe, secure manner.” “The elections bill passed today is a historic step that dramatically increases voting access in our commonwealth,” said Senate President Karen Spilka (DAshland). “This bill would allow voters, for the fi rst time, to cast ballots by mail, vote early and safely vote in person—allowing residents to safely exercise their important right to vote during the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic. The Senate has always championed greater participation in our democracy, and I am proud that ideas we’ve originated over the years are contained in this bill.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes MORE DETAILS ON ENSURING SAFE AND ACCESSIBLE ELECTIONS (S 2755) Senate 16-23, rejected an amendment that would replace a provision in the bill that requires Secretary Galvin, in conjunction with the Department of Public Health, to establish regulations requiring public health safeguards at early voting sites and polling places. The safeguards include requiring the distancing of voters and election offi cers, frequent use of sanitizers, appropriate clothing and the use of marking pens. The amendment includes many more specifi c details and ultimately allows cities and towns to make the final decision on what safeguards it wants to impose. The amendment includes requiring Galvin to provide comprehensive guidance to municipalities on designing polling locations to ensure six-foot physical distancing throughout the voting process; proper signage in and outside of the polling site; implement curbside voting for voters with physical or health limitations; establish a statewide volunteer portal so that all municipalities have adequate poll workers; planning for volunteer poll worker shortages and outreach, recruitment, and training of additional and reserve poll workers to ensure that the burden of administering the in-person election does not fall on older and vulnerable poll workers at greater risk to COVID-19. Another key detailed provision requires the guidance to include protection of poll workers with personal protective equipment, adequate access to cleaning supplies throughout the day, access to hand-washing and bathrooms with adequate soap, water and disposable paper towels and other public health measures to protect poll workers and voters from the spread of coronavirus. “I filed this amendment to ensure that our city and town clerks and their staffs, voting registrars, and voters are as safe as possible, at the election polls,” said Sen. Jamie Eldridge (D-Acton), the sponsor of the amendment. “While voting by mail will surely increase as a result of the Legislature’s actions in this bill, if we truly consider voting as a right, the state should be providing as much guidance, personal protection equipment, enforcement of physical distancing, and no-contact options for people to vote this fall … [The] pandemic has already resulted in challenges for cities and towns to fi nd more election volunteers [and] this volunteer portal will also better support our municipal election clerks.” “[The bill itself] covered the majority of the concerns raised in [Sen. Eldridge’s amendment] … but in broader terms,” said Election Laws Committee chair Sen. Barry Finegold (D-Andover) who was leading the charge for the bill. He noted that he already had commitments from Galvin to implement the rest of Eldridge’s amendment that was not in the bill. (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No UNIFORM EARLY VOTING/ ABSENTEE BALLOT APPLICATIONS (H 2755) Senate 14-25, rejected an amendment that would standardize early voting/absentee ballot applications, ballots and permits including voter indication of early voting or absentee voting on applications to track non-voter-specifi c rates of early voting and absentee voting. “A uniform application and ballot would help to eliminate voter confusion and reduce processing ineffi ciencies and unintentional errors that could lead to potentially invalid ballots,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Diana DiZoglio (DMethuen.) “Clerks in my district have faced the issue of whether a ballot should count because the voter received or submitted the wrong type of ballot. No one’s vote should be excludible on account of a mistake in form. This amendment makes an investment in our electoral system that can reduce costs in the long run, by simplifying the process for requesting, receiving and returning ballots. With the fi nancial burden the pandemic has imposed on the commonwealth, we must think outside the box and make investments that will provide reduced cost returns.” “I support options to limit confusion for voters and our clerks,” said Finegold who opposed the amendment. “However, there are diff erent legal requirements for absentee voting and early voting by mail, which is why two separate applications are standard.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No PROCESSING OF ABSENTEE BALLOTS (S 2755) Senate 10-29, rejected an amendment that would require absentee ballots only be processed during the normal hours of operation of the city or town hall and that a member of the board of registrars in the city or town representing the two leading political parties be notifi ed about the time and location of the processing and be permitted to observe. “The purpose of this amendment is to create more safeguards around the expansion of absentee voting and the processing of absentee ballots during this election cycle,” said the amendment’s sponsor Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton). “I believe that it is necessary to add these layers of additional protection to minimize the risk of fraud and abuse with election ballots.” “I respect and understand what Sen. Fattman was trying to do with this amendment,” said Sen. Finegold. “Unfortunately, it is too prescriptive for what we are trying to do with this legislation. We’ve spoken with Secretary Galvin and are confi dent that his regulations will provide an opportunity for public observation.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore No VOTING BY MAIL APPLICATIONS (S 2755) Senate 39-0 approved an amendment to a section of the bill that requires Secretary Galvin to include early voting by mail applications with the voter information booklet that gets sent to every Bay State household in the fall. The amendment guarantees that the cover or exterior envelope of the voter booklet will clearly state that voting by mail applications are included inside, and that the booklets and applications will be mailed to households by October 5. It also requires that any vote by a select board or city or town council to relocate regular polling places be both public and recorded and directs the secretary of state to conduct a public awareness campaign to promote the new voting options included in the bill. “I’m proud that the Senate unanimously adopted my amendment … in a bipartisan show of support for equity and education when it comes to ballot access and vote by mail,” said Sen. Becca Rausch (D-Needham). “This amendment … enhances voter education and outreach promotes government transparency. “We know that historically, Black and Latinx voters rely on in-person polling places, and that changes to those locations, especially at the last minute, have a disproportionate impact on voters of color,” continued Rausch. “Thanks to my amendment, if city and town offi cials vote to relocate regular polling places, the votes must be both public and recorded. This is a crucial change for government transparency—if our local elected offi cials are going to make these changes just weeks before an election, it’s critical that they stand up and own their votes.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of June 1519, the House met for a total of one hour and 11 minutes while the Senate met for a total of two hours and 46 minutes. Mon.

OBITUARIES | SEE PAGE 16 PAYCHECK PROTECTION PROGRAM EZ FORGIVENESS FORM T he SBA, working with the Department of the Treasury, announced the release of new Form 3508EZ for certain Paycheck Protection Program (PPP) borrowers in order to apply for forgiveness of the PPP loan. This Form is much simpler than the initial forgiveness loan application. This will not only streamline the process for the PPP borrowers, but also for the lenders that served as the intermediary between the SBA and the borrower. The lender is the one that has to actually approve the forgiveness loan application. In order to be eligible to complete Form 3508EZ, borrowers must meet the following criteria: 1. The borrower is self-employed and has no employees; or 2. Did not reduce the salaries or wages of their employees by more than 25% and did not reduce the number of hours of their employees; or 3. Experienced reductions in business activity as a result of health directives related to COVID-19 and did not reduce the salaries or wages of their employees by more than 25%. On page one of the instructions to Form 3508EZ you will find a checklist with 3 checkboxes. If you can check off at least one of those 3 checkboxes, you will be able to complete Form 3508EZ, which is only a two-page form. On page two of Form 3508EZ, the borrower must check off certain representations and certifi cations. The fi rst page of the application has the forgiveness amount calculation: 1. Line 1: list the gross payroll for the covered period 2. Line 2: list business mortgage payments made during the covered period 3. Line 3: list business rent paid during the covered period 4. Line 4: list business utility payments made during the covered period 5. Line 5: add the amounts on lines 1 through 4 6. Line 6: insert the amount of the PPP loan other questions. “Do we have a threat we know about or is this total proactive behavior?” asked Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo, who also asked whether council security would be armed or unarmed. Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso acknowledged there are reasons to be concerned about the mood of the public. “People have become a little outrageous in their reactions,” he said, adding that people’s mindsets are really uneasy. “Everybody is out there walking on quicksand,” said Guinasso. “Some people are unemployed, some people are losing their jobs, their property or they can’t pay their bills.” In addition to possible problems due to the stress people are experiencing, Guinasso said, there are other questions to consider. Like Keefe, he wondered about the cost of security for the council. “The Zoning Board of Appeals is a controversial board. Do they also have a police offi cer at their meetings?” he asked. “I think we should have input from residents to see if they think it’s reasonable that we should be protected and they’re not,” he said, adding that the proposal comes with a lot of issues to consider. “But I think we should talk about this in the Public Safety Committee.” Councillor-at-Large Jessica Giannino, chair of the Public Safety Committee, agreed and gently ushered the proposal into her committee for further review. ~ Home of the Week ~ SAUGUS - 1st AD Wonderful 10 rm., 3-4 bdrm., 3 bath Split Entry boasting bright and sunny living rm. w/gas (propane)         w/seating and additional storage, formal dining rm. w/bow                                                                                                     View the interior of this home right on your smartphone.       7.
