But Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso took the hearing as an opportunity to bring up some less than ideal goings on; he said he’s gotten wind of at the new hotel. “This is the new folks who came into town with the thoughts of doing a good thing for our community and build a nice structure,” said Guinasso. “They only thing they forgot to do was put qualifi ed people inside to manage the hotel to stop prostitution and other illegal activities that are occurring there. This is not germane to your proposal tonight, but I want the council to be aware that this type of activity is occurring there, and I am talking about not one or two or three occasions.” Guinasso said he got his oil changed at a shop next to the hotel and asked about their new neighbor. “Boy, did I get an earful,” said Guinasso. “They said – on several occasions – this type of activity: young girls running out.” City Council President Anthony Zambuto said he had to put a stop to Guinasso’s comments because they were outside the purview of the granting of a fl ammables permit. Paul Moan, the fi re proARTHUR GUINASSO Ward 3 Councillor tection engineer from Code Red Consultants in Southborough, was quick to point out that Guinasso’s concerns were outside his customary role. “I am not a lawyer. I am a fi re protection engineer from Code Red Consultants. You’ll have to forgive me; I have a very limited context here,” said Moan. Zambuto said he understood Moan was before the council for the fl ammables permit and that he wouldn’t have knowledge of any alleged criminal activity at the hotel. While the council approved the permit by a 7-4 vote, the issues raised by Guinasso did give some councillors pause. In addition to Guinasso, Councillors Jessica Ann Giannino, Richard Serino and George Rotondo voted against granting the permit, while Ward 4 Councillor Patrick Keefe voted for it, but only after making it clear that the only issue at hand was the vote on fi re suppression issues. Rotondo suggested the council write to the police chief about issues at the hotel, and Guinasso said he spoke to the chief recently about his concerns.              Prices subject to change Have a Happy &   FLEET

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 Page 3 Silencing the Sound WIN Waste Innovations offi cial credits a new silencer system with keeping the noise level down in recent turbine shutdown By Mark E. Vogler S augus Board of Health members are happy about what they are hearing – or not hearing – this summer related to the noise emanating from the WIN Waste Innovations trash-to-energy plant on Route 107 in Saugus. Usually in the past, the board would fi eld numerous neighborhood complaints about disruptive noise every time a turbine tripped and had to be shut down for maintenance at the former Wheelabrator plant. But things have been quiet so far this summer – even after the recent tripping of a turbine at the plant – an incident that would draw numerous neighborhood complaints in recent years. The installation of the new silencer at a cost of $750,000 is responsible for the lack of noise from the plant and the absence of complaints from the neighborhood, according to WIN Waste Innovations’ VP of Waste to Energy, Peter DiCecco. “The newly installed silencer worked very well – worked like a charm,” DiCecco told the Board of Health during a Wednesday night (July 14) meeting conducted virtually via Zoom videoconferencing. DiCecco told the board that there were “no audible sounds from that silencer.” “It’s good seeing the investment there coming to fruition and doing its job,” DiCecco said. “Probably a year ago, you would probably be talking about it right now,” he added. Board of Health Chair William Heff ernan was pleased with the progress the company has made in drastically reducing the sound. “Kudos to your team,” Heff ernan told DiCecco. “I heard about it,” he said of the recent turbine shutdown. “I did not receive any phone calls, which is odd when the turbine seems to go down,” Heff ernan said. “I just want to say ‘thank you’ to you and your entire team. That was a worthwhile investment and it seems to be paying off already. So, thank you very much,” he said. A consultant hired by WIN Waste Innovations determined that the new silencer installed at the plant this past spring could reduce the noise level from 96 decibels to 70 decibels – roughly the difference between the sound of a power mower and a vacuum cleaner. WIN Waste InnoRevereTV Spotlight L et’s introduce RevereTV’s four summer interns! Arianna Sweeney is a Revere High School student who is interning at the studio to explore her interests in digital media and television. Chris Fortin is heading to Emerson College in the fall, majoring in Media Production, and hopes to get some hands-on experience around the studio this summer. Isabella Pino, already a community volunteer at RevereTV, is studying at UMass Boston with a major in Communications. Angelina Gallarelli has also volunteered at RTV in various studio and member productions, and is now pursuing her interests in fi lmmaking. RevereTV is a great place to be introduced to all sorts of production skills no matter what route these students hope to take in the future. All four have already taken the core production classes RTV off ers to all community members. With the new equipment and studio this year, even current community members will need a refresher when they come back! These classes include studio directing, fi lm composition, fi eld production, and editing. The RTV interns participated in a few productions last week. vations learned of the less-noisy alternative as a result of an ongoing consultant’s engineering study being performed as a condition of a state Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) consent order in response to numerous citizen noise complaints and enforcement action initiated by the Saugus Board of Health about two years ago. The noise emanating from the plant generated frequent complaints from Saugus, Revere and Lynn. But the Board of Health received no recent complaints from people in the three communities who were irked by the noise in the past, according to Heff ernan. In his briefing of Board of Health members, DiCecco noted other improvements at the plant, including a new fi re alarm system call box that has been programmed and is scheduled to be tested next week by the Saugus Fire Department. Heff ernan asked DiCecco for the company’s explanation of another recent instance of a company hauling low level radioactive wastes to the Saugus plant. DiCecco deferred to Plant Manager Chris Bourque for an explanation. Bourque told the Board of Health that censors at the plant detected the presence of a radioactive material – probably iodine – and the material was removed from the truck and processed. “I’ve seen two of these incidents in the last six months,” Heffernan said. “The censors worked as necessary,” he said. “It’s nice to know that when something gets in there before it gets into the plant, that you are able to fl ag it,” he said. $2.39 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 Page 5 Resident, councillors spar over City Council procedures By Adam Swift I t was the kind of City Council exchange you can’t get on Zoom when Thorndike Street resident Wayne Rose squared off with several councillors over a proposed ordinance he presented. It ended with Rose and several councillors shouting over each other and one audience member storming out, slamming the City Council Chamber doors and knocking the clock off the wall as City Council President Anthony Zambuto restored order. Rose proposed an ordinance which would give the City Council the right to repeal any municipal board or commission member by a majority vote. Zambuto and several councillors noted that this is a power the council isn’t allowed under Massachusetts General Laws. “I hear many sitting council members talk about checks and balances, yet we have no mechanisms to remove anyone from any of these commissions or committees, so I am asking that you would fi le an appropriate ordinance to address this,” said Rose last Monday night. He said Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo fi led a motion giving the council some of those powers in the Legislative Affairs Subcommittee chaired by Councillor-at-Large Steven Morabito that sat in committee. Rose also criticized how that and other motions go into subcommittee and sometimes never get reported out. “On that particular motion, actually, I had surgery and wasn’t able to go forward with the motion,” said Rotondo. “But Councillor Morabito made a very poignant statement of fact that if you do for one you have to do for all, and so to leave it in committee and let it die was the appropriate thing to do. To single out any one group is incorrect … the question is, what is the litmus test and who decides?” Rose asked if anyone did a criminal background check or vetted the appointees to the city’s boards and commissions. “People go onto these committees; no one knows anything about them; they’re just appointed. You people vote on them; you don’t vet them; you don’t CORI [Criminal Off ender Record Information] them,” said Rose. “So what’s going on? Why can’t we have a balance here?” Zambuto said that what Rose was requesting was not possible by the means he was asking to do it. “This can’t be done in an ordinance,” said Zambuto. “This is Mass.

I’m asking you to quote the law,” Rose said. “Can I see it? I would love to see it. Do you have it in front of you?” “I don’t have it in front of me,” said Zambuto. “Or are you just going to say you have it?” said Rose. “I don’t have it in front of me,” said Zambuto. “Then it’s not here,” said Rose. “Listen,” said Zambuto. “I’ll stake my reputation on it.” Zambuto said the appointees are made by the mayor and approved by the council, and that the council has no recourse to remove the appointees. Rose then began talking over Morabito as Morabito began explaining the process for appointing board and commission members. “In these council chambers, we speak to each other with respect,” said Morabito. “Then lower your tone, please, if you are going to respect me,” said Rose. Zambuto eventually ruled that the motion by Rose would be placed on fi le and not moved forward to subcommittee. As another resident was addressing the council on the subject after Rose spoke, another audience member stormed out, slamming the chamber doors and bringing down the clock. “I guess we need a new clock,” said Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna. Councillor-at-Large Jessica Ann Giannino said it was one of the most embarrassing moments she has ever experienced in the City Council Chambers.

To further prepare for this mansite vaccination clinics to facilitate meeting this important requirement. The organization thanked its employees for their incredible dedication, loyalty, courage and compassion. “COVID-19 has been devastating, especially for those of us who care for the most vulnerable,” said Berman. “I am so proud of our staff and how they have persevered throughout these challenging times. They are the real heroes in this story.” Berman noted that ADAM BERMAN President/CEO of Legacy Lifecare date, senior leadership will continue to off er comprehensive information about vaccine safety and effi cacy, including encouraging employees to ask questions and addressing concerns on a one-on-one basis. In addition, all campuses will off er onthe organization did not make the vaccine mandate decision lightly. “Simply put, implementing this mandate is the only way we can fully protect our staff and our residents,” said Berman. “I absolutely believe it’s the right decision for us.” About Chelsea Jewish Lifecare Chelsea Jewish Lifecare is redefi ning senior care and re-envisioning what life should be like for those living with disabling conditions.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 Page 9 City Council questions ConCom resignations By Adam Swift L ast Monday night, the City Council approved the appointments of Zachary Bisconti and Nathalie Pardo to the Conservation Commission. But more pointedly, Ward 3 City Councillor Arthur Guinasso, chair of the Appointments Subcommittee, requested a meeting with Mayor Brian Arrigo to sort out why there have been so many recent resignations from the Conservation Commission. Chair Nick Moulaison has resigned from the commission, and members David Eatough and Deborah Santiano-McHatton are resigning eff ective July 15, according to mayor’s aide J.D. Jaramillo. A Conservation Commission meeting was scheduled for Wednesday, July 14. “What’s going on with the Conservation Commission is something so many people in the community have asked me and have asked members of this City Council,” said Guinasso. “In the past couple of weeks and months, several members of this commission resigned. It’s never happened; this is my 34th year as a public servant serving in the capacity as a city councillor, and we’ve never had so many resignations from one committee representing the people of Revere.” Guinasso said it is the obligation and responsibility of the council and the subcommittee to get the questions answered about why the Conservation Commission has been depleted. “We need to do something; we need to respond to people in an intelligent fashion, and we need to know what is taking place in our city,” said Guinasso. Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna said she has talked to some of the former Conservation Commission members, who stated that they were discouraged that they had no real say in the matter of conservation land. “What’s happening is they will get something in front of them, and they will go down to the site to see it, and the production has already started,” said McKenna. “They are getting fed up with the process, and they don’t want to be there anymore because the process is not working. This is what I am hearing, and I think it is my Child tax credits are coming – so are the scammers F rom July 15 through December, for people who qualify for payments through the American Rescue Plan Act, the Internal Revenue Service (IRS) announced, it is sending monthly payments by direct deposit, paper check or through debit cards. These payments are an advance on the child tax credit, which means eligible people will get up to half of their child tax credit in these monthly payments and the other half when they fi le their 2021 taxes. You can go to IRS.gov to see who qualifi es, how much you may receive and how to address any problems. You will also have the option of unenrolling from the Advance payments program. According to the Federal Trade Commission (FTC), when it comes to government being in the news, the scammers will likely use their standard playbook, meaning impostor scams might appear, with con artists pretending to “help” you get your payments earlier, get more money or commit identity theft. The Better Business Bureau (BBB) and the FTC share these tips: • Avoid Impostor scams – government agencies, like the IRS or Social Security Administration, will not call, text, direct message or email you. • Do not give out any personal information, like social security numbers, bank account information or credit/debit card numbers. • Eligibility requirements and payment disbursements are monitored by the IRS only. • When someone is requiring payments by gift card, wire transfers or cryptocurrency, it is likely a scam. Learn more tips on how to avoid scams by reading BBB’s “10 Steps to Avoid Scams.” If you have been the victim of this or another scam, make others aware by fi ling a report on BBB.org/ScamTracker.

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 AG Healey joins coalition calling on federal regulators to act on child car seat safety A ttorney General Healey recently joined a coalition of 18 attorneys general calling on the National Highway Traffic Safety Administration (NHTSA) to take stronger measures to protect children while traveling in car seats, including stricter testing standards and labeling measures. Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children between one and 13 years of age. In a letter sent to NHTSA and the Department of Transportation, the coalition urged NHTSA to create and implement side-impact testing standards for child car seats as quickly as possible, after 20 years of delay that has endangered children’s safety. The coalition also ~ FLASHBACK ~ 50th in a series of      called on NHTSA to require that all child car seat labels include clear, concise language conveying that every child should remain in their current seat until exceeding its height or weight maximum, a practice endorsed by experts. “Car crashes are the leading cause of death for young children and federal regulators should be doing everything they can to protect children from this risk,” Healey said. “We are calling on the NHTSA to prioritize implementing these critical requirements, so that we can ensure our children are safe while on the road.” Congress fi rst called on NHTSA to adopt side-impact standards for child car seats in 2000. More than two decades later, there are still no such standards from any federal government entity. Some manufacturers do conduct their own sideimpact testing, but without critical federal standards in place. Side-impact crashes cause almost as many child injuries and deaths as frontal-impact crashes and are more likely than any other types of crashes to cause serious or fatal injuries. The coalition also urged NHTSA to implement labeling standards that encourage parents to delay the transition to the next car seat for as long as possible depending upon the height and weight limits of the product. There are currently three major categories of car seats: rear-facing seats with a fi ve-point harness, forward-facing seats with a fi ve-point harness, and booster seats used in conjunction with a traditional lap and shoulder seat belt. Determining which seat is appropriate for a child also depends on the child’s development and maturity level. Experts universally agree that children should delay transition to the next seat in the progression for as long as possible, until they exceed their current seat’s height or weight limits. “Motor vehicle crashes are the leading cause of death for children aged one to 13. Almost 5,000 children under 15 have died in car crashes from 2015 to 2019, which equates to about 19 children each week over that time period,” the letter states. “Since their introduction in the 1970s, child car seats have significantly reduced the risk of injury to children, and numerous technological advances have made them safer over the years. NHTSA shares credit in this success, but as the data shows, there is still room for improvement. One such area in need of improvement is making sure that parents use the most appropriate car seat given their child’s weight, height and age.” AG Healey sues Google over illegal app store monopoly conduct A 2011’s Revere Little League banquet watched Coaches Scott Sullivan and Bill Day present the Minor League Championship Trophy to their team the Rangers.    AUTOTECH 1989 SINCE Is your vehicle ready for the Summer Season?!!

We Pay Cash For Your ttorney General Maura Healey recently joined a bipartisan coalition of 37 attorneys general in fi ling a lawsuit against Google for using its market dominance to unfairly restrict competition within the Google Play Store for Android mobile devices, harming consumers by limiting choices and driving up app prices. The lawsuit, which was fi led in the U.S. District Court of the Northern District of California–San Francisco Division, alleges that the tech giant violated the federal Sherman Antitrust Act and various state antitrust and consumer protection laws with its exclusionary conduct, which substantially shut out competing app distribution channels. In addition, according to the complaint, Google requires that developers off ering apps through the Google Play Store use Google Billing, which forces them to pay Google’s exorbitant commission – up to 30 percent – on in-app purchases made by consumers. This commission is signifi cantly higher than commission fees charged by other competitive payment processors for digital and nondigital goods. “Smartphones are a source of information, entertainment, and commerce in our daily lives, but Google’s abuse of its Android market dominance has stifl ed competition and consumer options for app downloads,” Healey said. “We are fi ling this lawsuit today to end Google’s web of restrictive contracts that have unlawfully infl ated the cost of many digital goods, services, upgrades or other purchases made through apps downloaded from the Google Play Store. This lawsuit seeks to protect both consumers and innovative app developers from these unlawful practices.” According to the complaint, Google had previously promised app developers and device manufacturers that it would keep Android as an “open source” platform (allowing developers to create compatible apps and distribute them without unnecessary restrictions) but did not keep that promise – implementing contractual restraints that both disincentivized and restricted mobile device manufacturers and network operators that adopted the Android ecosystem from competing in the relevant market. The Google Play Store, which is Google’s app store, accounts for over 90 percent of all app downloads on Android smartphones. The attorneys general allege that Google engaged in the following conduct to enhance and protect its monopoly position over Android app distribution: • Imposed technical barriers that strongly discouraged or eff ectively prevented third-party app developers from distributing apps outside the Google Play Store • Prohibited Android from being “open source” for many years, effectively cutting off potential competition; Google forces mobile device manufacturers who wish to sell devices that run Android to enter into agreements that prohibit creating or implementing any variants of the Google-certifi ed version of Android; this includes prohibiting changes that could facilitate the distribution of apps outside the Google Play Store. • Foreclosed competition by forcing Google’s proprietary apps to be “pre-loaded” on essentially all devices designed to run on the Android OS and requiring that Google’s apps be given the most prominent placement on device home screens • Entered into arrangements with mobile device manufacturers and network operators that provided a share of Google’s monopoly profi ts in exchange for not competing with the Google Play Store • Forced app developers and app users alike to use Google’s payment processing service, Google Play Billing, to process payments for in-app purchases of content consumed within the app, unlawfully tying the use of Google’s payment processor, which is a separate service within a separate market for payment processing within apps, to distribution through the Google Play Store

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 Baker-Polito Administration kicks off statewide small business tour LT. Governor Karyn Polito joined Housing and Economic Development Secretary Michael Kennealy and local business, community and municipal leaders on the fi rst stop of a statewide small business and downtown conversation tour. The purpose of the tour is to celebrate the Commonwealth’s reopening and discuss the Administration’s $2.9 billion proposal for American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) funds to jumpstart the Commonwealth’s economic recovery, including $450 million for economic development. “Our plan for ARPA funding will provide immediate relief to help the Commonwealth’s main streets and downtowns recover from the COVID-19 pandemic in a sustainable way,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Our goal with this tour is to hear directly from business owners in communities hit the hardest and highlight the once-in-a-generation opportunity to make a signifi cant impact for so many in need.” “Small businesses are fundamental to the character of our downtowns and main streets and our proposal to use federal funding targets the communities and neighborhoods hit the hardest to ensure an equitable recovery,” said Polito. “We look forward to getting back out into communities across the state to engage with and work with our partners at the local level in order to restart and re-energize Massachusetts’ economy.” The tour, which officially launched today, will continue throughout the summer and will stop at approximately two dozen city and town centers across Massachusetts. Each stop will include a tour of downtown and main street businesses and a roundtable conversation with business owners, community leaders, and state and local offi - cials to engage directly on how the Administration can continue to off er necessary support for economic recovery. While Massachusetts is known as a global leader in industries such as life sciences and the innovation economy, research conducted by the US Small Business Administration found that prior to the pandemic; more than 45 percent of the entire Commonwealth’s workforce was employed by a small business. “COVID-19 created unprecedented economic pressure on the small business community across Massachusetts,” said Kennealy. “As we continue taking steps to put the eff ects of this virus behind us, our proposal to direct $2.9 billion to existing, proven programs will accelerate the Commonwealth’s economic recovery with a focus on equity and sustainability.” In June, the Baker-Polito Administration fi led a plan to put $2.9 billion of Commonwealth’s direct federal aid from the American Rescue Plan Act to use immediately through existing, proven programs to support key recovery priorities including housing and homeownership, economic development and local downtowns, job training and workforce development, health care, and infrastructure. The proposal expressly targets support for lower-wage workers and communities of color. Included in the Administration’s plan is $450 million for economic development. Of that total, $100 million will be allocated specifi cally for downtown development to concentrate economic growth activities, resources, and investments within local neighborhood areas in municipalities disproportionally impacted by COVID; $250 million will support investments and regional collaboration aimed at invigorating downtowns and main streets throughout Massachusetts; and, $100 million will be designated for eff orts to support cultural facilities and tourism assets throughout Massachusetts. During the pandemic, the Administration established the largest state-sponsored business relief program in the nation that distributed approximately $705 million in direct fi - nancial assistance to over 15,000 small businesses throughout the Commonwealth. That program, which was administered by the Massachusetts Growth Capital Corporation, awarded grants based on a combination factors including demographic priorities, businesses operating in the sectors most heavily impacted by the pandemic and in Gateway Cities, to ensure funding was distributed equitably throughout Massachusetts. Over the course of the program, 43 percent of grants were awarded to minority-owned businesses, and 46 percent of grants went to women-owned businesses. International Faculty Returns to Brandeis/Israel for Intensive Summer Program The Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University resumes Summer Institute for Israel Studies after pandemic hiatus T he long-running Summer Institute for Israel Studies (SIIS), a competitive faculty fellowship that examines the subject of Israel in all its complexity, is resuming after postponing its 2020 program. When the Covid-19 pandemic precluded travel and gatherings last summer, organizers opted to postpone to 2021, rather than move the program online. Now in its 17th year, SIIS is the fl agship program of the Schusterman Center for Israel Studies at Brandeis University in Waltham, MA. The fellowship prepares professors across the country and around the world to teach about Israel in a nuanced way, grounded in rigorous scholarship, rather than polemics The intensive program begins on the Brandeis campus with a multidisciplinary two-week seminar exploring multiple perspectives on Israeli society, politics and culture. During their Brandeis residency, participants draft a syllabus to teach at their home institution. This year’s group represents disciplines ranging from dance, art and visual culture, to business, literature, religious studies, sociology and comparative politics. Next, fellows travel to Israel for an immersive 10-day study tour. There they engage with Jewish and Arab intellectuals, politicians and community leaders, encountering diverse voices and viewpoints. The 2021 fellows have just begun their Israel study tour. Schusterman Center director Jonathan D. Sarna, said he is thrilled SIIS participants will be able to meet in person. “Never has teaching about Israel been more SIIS | SEE Page 17 The Hidden Dangers of Sleep Apnea Dear Savvy Senior, How can you know when someone has sleep apnea? My husband has become such a terrible snorer that he wakes himself up at night, and he keeps me up too. Tired Teri Dear Teri, If your husband is a loud snorer who wakes himself up during sleep, he probably needs to be tested for sleep apnea, a dangerous disorder that aff ects more than 22 million Americans, but often goes undiagnosed. Sleep apnea is a disorder that causes a person to stop breathing during sleep, hundreds of times during the night, for 10 seconds or more at a time. Left untreated, it can cause extreme daytime sleepiness, as well as a host of serious health conditions like high blood pressure, heart attack, stroke, diabetes and dementia. In fact, it’s estimated that every year, around 38,000 Americans die in their sleep from a heart attack or stroke because of sleep apnea. But the good news is that sleep apnea is very treatable and most insurance companies, including Medicare, cover it. Who Has It? There are three types of sleep apnea: obstructive, central and mixed. Of the three, obstructive sleep apnea (or OSA) is by far the most common and occurs when the throat muscles relax during sleep, blocking the airway. While anyone can have it, sleep apnea is most common in people who are overweight, male, middle-aged and older. For women, the risk increases after menopause. The symptoms include loud snoring (however not everyone who snores has apnea), long pauses of breathing, gasping or choking during sleep and daytime drowsiness. But because most of these symptoms happen during sleep, most people don’t recognize them. It’s usually the person they’re sleeping with who notices it. Diagnosing Sleep Apnea To help you get a handle on your husband’s problem, the American Sleep Apnea Association has several diagnostic tests he can take at SleepApnea.org/ treat – click on “Test Yourself.” If the screening indicates that he may have sleep apnea, make an appointment with his doctor or a sleep specialist who will probably recommend an overnight diagnostic sleep test called polysomnography, which can take place at a sleep center lab (see SleepEducation. com), or at home using a portable device. Treatment Options Your husband is at greater risk for sleep apnea if he’s overweight, smokes, and/or consumes excessive amounts of alcohol. Excess weight, especially around the neck, puts pressure on the airway, which can cause it to collapse. Smoking can increase the amount of infl ammation and fl uid retention in the upper airway. And alcohol and sleeping pills can relax the muscles in the back of his throat, interfering with breathing. Addressing these issues, if necessary, is usually the fi rst line of treatment. If that doesn’t do the trick, mild cases of sleep apnea may respond to oral devices that fi t into the mouth like a removable mouth guard or retainer. These devices work by positioning the lower jaw slightly forward to keep the airway open during sleep. Another noninvasive treatment option to consider is the new FDA approved eXciteOSA device (eXciteOSA.com). This treats sleep apnea and snoring by improving tongue muscle function by delivering electrical stimulation to the tongue through a mouthpiece that’s worn for just 20 minutes during the day. If none of these options work, the most effective and commonly prescribed treatment for OBA is a continuous positive airway pressure (CPAP) device. This involves sleeping with a snorkel-like mask that’s hooked up to a machine that gently blows air up the nose to keep the passages open. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 Page 17 SOUNDS OF REVERE J udging from the buzz going around the local political scene of State Sen. Joe Boncore’s early departure for a job at the non-profi t MassBio, candidates are lining up for his seat at the state house. But one candidate seems to be standing out as reported on the political online website MassterList on July 14, 2021. If it opens up, he's running for it If the First Suff olk and Middlesex Senate seat opens up, Revere School Committee member Anthony D'Ambrosio says he's running for it. "If the seat is open, we will fully run for it and we will run hard," he told MassterList in an interview. "The group of people I'm around and myself, we pride ourselves on being the hardest working people in the room. There are always hard-working people but the one thing we can control in this race is that we're going to outwork the other candidates." Of course, this all hinges on whether or not Sen. Joseph Boncore steps down to take the top job at the Massachusetts Biotechnology Council. Boncore fi led documents Monday with the State Ethics Commission disclosing that he is in conversations with a search committee "concerning a position at the council" after it was reported last week that he had been telling associates he expected SIIS | FROM Page 16 urgent,” said Sarna, University Professor and the Joseph H. and Belle R. Braun Professor of American Jewish History. “Too many people only view Israel from afar, through the media. To help students properly contextualize and understand contemporary developments requires well-informed experts who know Israel at fi rsthand. So as soon as the opportunity arose to bring our program back to Israel, we seized it.” The 2021 cohort includes participants from the Czech Republic and Switzerland, as well as Hawaii, Maryland, West Virginia, Colto get the CEO job. So who is D'Ambrosio? Well, he's a 25-year-old son of immigrants, his father having come to the United States in the 1970s from southern Italy. He's a graduate of Yale University, earned a master's at the University of Cambridge in England, interned for U.S. Sen. Markey, and has served on the Revere School Committee member for the past two years. "[Markey is] just an incredible public servant who has given so much to the state in every single way possible," D'Ambrosio said. "And learning the ropes, particularly with regard to the issue of constituent service, which is so often overlooked in public service, it was just incredibly instrumental for my development in a pretty critical time in your life. So I was able to sort of watch a master at work during those experiences." And where does he put himself on the political spectrum? "I would place myself as a working-class supporting Democrat," he said. "My political orado and Texas, among others. The Summer Institute has a truly global impact. To date, the program has prepared 336 professors at 235 institutions across North America and around the world to teach Israel Studies in their respective disciplines. Summer Institute alumni have taught 1,400 courses about Israel to more than 33,549 students worldwide, in countries including Azerbaijan, Brazil, China, Cyprus, France, Germany, Hungary, India, Indonesia, Romania, Poland, Turkey, the Ukraine and Zimbabwe, among others. Public health and safety are paramount. The Schusterman views don't align cleanly with many, if any, establishment fi gures in the country right now. And there is an opportunity to bridge both a generational and ideological gap that is growing ever wider as we proceed forward here. So we are going full-on supporting the working-class Democrats in this race." D'Ambrosio fi led paperwork with the state's campaign finance office to begin raising money to seek the office on Monday. And while D'Ambrosio hasn't offi cially announced his candidacy, he says he wants to focus on getting people back to work and educating children. "I'm an education guy. The school committee has really been my life in Revere, sort of a backbone of my own experience in the city and one of the highlights of my life and honors of my life to serve on it," he said. 'I'm going to extend that work and eff ort to fi ght to educate the children of the 21st Century, for the economy of the 21st Century, which is the backbone of this Boston economy." Center has ensured that all participants are fully vaccinated, and is following all national, state, local and University guidelines in both countries, such as periodic testing, social distancing and maskwearing as advised.

MASSHEALTH SUPERIOR COURT CASE A recent Massachusetts Superior Court Judge held against MassHealth with respect to the countability of assets housed in an irrevocable Trust. It is well settled law that for purposes of determining eligibility for MassHealth benefi ts, countable assets include any portion of the Trust principal that could under any circumstances be paid to or for the benefi t of the applicant. Such circumstances need not have occurred, or even be imminent, in order for the principal to be treated as countable assets; it is enough that the amount could be made available to the applicant under any circumstances. This was set forth in the Heyn case, a Massachusetts Appeals Court case decided in 2016. In this Superior Court case, the applicant had retained a limited or special power of appointment in the Trust that she created that she could have exercised during her lifetime “to appoint the remaining principal and any undistributed income of the Trust among the members of the class consisting of her issue of all generations or charitable organizations other than governmental entities, but no such power or payment shall be used to discharge a legal obligation of the applicant”. In a simple sense, appoint is another word for distribute and an example of issue would be children or grandchildren. MassHealth argued that if the applicant appointed Trust principal to family members, those family members could then in turn return the Trust principal to the applicant to be used for her benefi t. The Superior Court once again cited the Heyn case which stated that “Medicaid does not consider assets held by other family members who might, by reason of love but without legal obligation, voluntarily contribute monies toward the grantor’s support”. The grantor of the Trust is also referred to as the Settlor or Donor, and in this case, was the applicant for MassHealth benefi ts as well. The court also stated that “the limited power of appointment is exercisable only in favor of permissible appointees, and any attempt to exercise a limited power of appointment in favor of an impermissible appointee (i.e. to use principal for the personal benefi t of the grantor), is therefore invalid. An appointment to a permissible appointee is ineff ective to the extent that it was: 1. Conditioned on the appointee conferring a benefi t on the impermissible appointee 2. Subject to a charge in favor of an impermissible appointee 3. Upon a trust for the benefi t of an impermissible appointee 4. In consideration of a benefi t conferred upon or promised to an impermissible appointee 5. Primarily for the benefi t of the appointee’s creditor, if that creditor is an impermissible appointee, or 6. Motivated in any other way to be for the benefi t of an impermissible appointee. The above six items are set forth in the Restatement (Third) of Property and the Superior Court judge held that MassHealth cannot argue that Trust principal could ever be distributed to a permissible appointee in order to benefi t the applicant and held that none of the Trust principal was countable. The applicant then qualifi ed for MassHealth benefi ts. In the case at hand, no principal could under any circumstances be appointed to the applicant. The applicant clearly was not a permissible appointee. If she was, her retained right would have been deemed a general power of appointment thereby providing her a right to receive Trust principal.

THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records the votes of local representatives and senators from the week of July 5-9. The House and Senate approved a $48.1 fi scal 2022 budget. The House also approved a new set of rules under which the Houser will operate beginning October 1. Despite repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call, Rep. Bill Galvin (D-Canton), the chair of the Rules Committee and author of the new rules package, did not respond to e-mails asking him to explain his reasons for voting against many of the amendments proposed to the package. Other representatives in the Democratic leadership who did not respond to repeated requested for a comment on why they voted against many of the amendments include Reps. Claire Cronin (D-Easton), Kate Hogan (D-Stow), Michael Moran (D-Brighton), Sarah Peake (D-Provincetown) and Joe Wagner (D-Chicopee). $48.1 BILLION FISCAL 2022 BUDGET (H 4002) House 160-0, Senate 40-0, approved and sent to Gov. Charlie Baker a compromise version of a $48.1 billion fi scal 2022 state budget for the fi scal year that began on July 1. The House and Senate had approved diff erent version of the budget and a sixmember conference committee hammered out a compromise version. The state has been operating on a temporary onemonth budget approved by the Legislature and the governor. Baker now has ten days to use his veto power to veto any items in this new budget and send them back to the Legislature which can override any of the vetoes with a two-thirds vote. The budget is based on new estimates that tax collections in fi scal year 2022 will increase by more than $4.2 billion above the amount originally predicted by the governor, the House and the Senate a few months ago. In light of the pandemic, elected offi cials had for months braced themselves for a substantial decrease in tax revenues and a cut in some programs and/or even a tax increase. The new estimates also led to the conference committee’s cancellation of a planned withdrawal from the state’s Rainy Day Fund of at least $1.5 billion. Offi cials also project a $1.1 billion deposit into the fund which will drive its balance to $5.8 billion by the end of fi scal year 2022. It also cancels a plan to raise fees on Uber and Lyft rides in order to generate new money for cities and towns, the MBTA and other infrastructure projects. Other provisions include a $350 million fund that could be used in future years to help cover the cost of the $1.5 billion school funding reform law passed in 2019; permanently extending the state’s tax credit for fi lm production companies in Massachusetts; and a new law that will provide victims of violent crime and human traffi cking enhanced protections. That provision is based on a bill fi led by Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford). “The conference report … upholds our Senate values, charts a hopeful path forward for our commonwealth and more importantly refl ects our priorities,” said Senate Ways and Means chair Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport) to lead off the debate on the Senate fl oor. “We maintain fi scal responsibility and ensure our commonwealth maintains healthy reserves for years to come. It safeguards the health and wellness of our most vulnerable populations and new supports for children and families.” “It invests in K-12 education, early education and childcare, housing, mental health, public health and other areas to ensure our citizens and our communities will benefi t equitably as we recover from the lasting impacts of the pandemic,” continued Rodrigues. “We address long term liabilities and make down payments to fulfi ll future                           obligations. This fi scally responsible and forward-looking budget doubles down on our commitment to build an equitable recovery and addresses our critical needs as we work to getting back to a new better.” Although she ultimately voted for the budget, Sen. Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) said during the debate on the Senate fl oor that she objected to the fact that legislators were given only a few hours to read the 434page bill before voting on it. The budget was released late Thursday night and was voted on Friday afternoon. DiZoglio said that positioning members to take a vote on something they did not get adequate time to review is not acceptable. “If we keep doing this over and over again, it’s not going to magically become acceptable,” she said. “The fact that we didn’t get even a day to review this is very disappointing. But what’s more disappointing … is the fact that those in our communities who have a stake in what happens in the bill before us, those it will impact most -- our schools, our elderly populations, those who are coming from positions of powerlessness, those folks, probably many of them, still don’t even know that we’re taking this bill up today. And yet we continue to call what happens in this chamber part of the democratic process.” (A “Yes” vote is for the budget.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes ADOPT NEW HOUSE RULES (H 3930) House 129-29, approved a set of new House rules that will go into eff ect on October 1, 2021. Until then, the House will continue to operate under the emergency COVID-19 rules it adopted last year. Without this bill, the emergency rules would expire on July 15. The new rules package includes requiring both formal and informal sessions of the House to be livestreamed; giving House committee chairs the ability to allow for both inperson and virtual hearing testimony from the public; allowing any member serving on active reserve military duty to cast a House vote remotely; and requiring committees to publish names of representatives who vote against advancing a bill through committee but not the names of legislators who vote in favor of or do not vote on the matter. “The challenges over the last 14 months have made us work and function differently,” said House Rules Committee chair Rep. Bill Galvin (D-Canton) during debate on the House fl oor. “This experience has shown us a new way to operate and to utilize technology, both procedurally and administratively. As we emerge from the worst of the pandemic, we have a unique opportunity to incorporate lessons learned, thereby providing for a more effi cient, fl exible and accessible legislative process.” House GOP Minority Leader Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading) said that the few changes do not go far enough: “I off ered multiple amendments to help shed more light on the way the House of Representatives and its committees conduct their business, but those amendments were struck down, leaving me with no choice but to reject the underlying rules package.” (A Yes” vote is for the House rules package. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino Yes TERM LIMITS FOR SPEAKER OF THE HOUSE (H 3930) House 35-125, rejected an amendment that would reinstate a 2009 rule that prohibited any representative from serving as speaker of the House for more than eight consecutive years. The rule was repealed in 2015. “Instituting term limits is about putting in place the guardrails to help ensure a more democratic and responsive House,” said amendment sponsor Rep. Tami Gouveia (DActon). “One that fosters fair and thoughtful competition required of a strong democratic entity. It is important to so many of our constituents across the state that we bring diverse and distinct experiences, identities and geographic representations to the table and I believe that term limits for the speaker will help us do this more eff ectively.” “While I appreciate diff erent ideas to continuously improve our Legislature, I do not support term limits,” said Rep. Jim O’Day (D-West Boylston). “Term limits can place the House at a severe disadvantage during negotiations with the governor and other offi cials, which is not benefi cial for advancing legislation or for our districts.” “The speaker holds the most powerful office in the House of Representatives, but all 160 Representatives stand as equals when it comes to representing their constituents,” said Rep. Brad Jones. “Setting term limits on the speaker’s offi ce is a way to prevent too much power from being consolidated in the hands of any one individual over time. Reinstating the term limits that were repealed in 2015 would send a powerful message that the House is committed to inclusion and the periodic transition of power.” Rep. Jack Lewis (D-Framingham), speaking on the House floor during debate, talked about campaigning, knocking on doors and asking his constituents which issues are important to them. “I’ll tell you what I’ve never heard when knocking on those doors: ‘Jack, I’m concerned that there are no term limits for the Massachusetts’ speaker of the House.’ Never once,” said Lewis. “And I urge all of my colleagues today to think back to those days … sometimes meeting our constituents for the fi rst time. Did any of you ever hear one of them ever bring this up as an issue? I’m confi dent that nearly universally, the answer is no.” (A “Yes” vote is for term limits. A “No” vote is against term limits.) Rep. Jessica Giannino No ALLOW MEMBERS TWO HOURS TO VOTE IN COMMITTEE (H 3930) House 35-124, rejected an amendment that would give legislators two hours to vote electronically when casting a vote on a bill in committee. “Members are often given very little time to respond to committee polls, even when the poll involves multiple bills and complicated issues,” said sponsor GOP House Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “One of the more glaring examples … was a recent House Ways and Means poll that gave members just 16 minutes to review a 38-page supplemental budget and a separate election reprecincting proposal. That is simply not enough time to properly review and understand these bills.” “The Republican caucus has consistently pushed for greater transparency during the rules debate of the House because the more information the public has access to the better,” said Rep. Todd Smola (R-Warren). “Having a two-hour window to read and comprehend legislation before it is voted out of committee is not asking for the world. This would help members digest bills and make informed decisions on what is before the House. Poll windows continue to shrink, and this practice contributes to the lack of transparent government for the people’s elected representatives.” Opponents of the amendment did not offer any arguments during debate on the House fl oor. This is one of the amendments on which Beacon Hill Roll Call made repeated requests to reach several representatives in the House DemoBEACON | SEE Page 19

Representatives not responding include Reps. Bill Galvin, Claire Cronin, Kate Hogan, Mike Moran, Peake and Joe Wagner. (A “Yes” vote is for giving two hours to vote. A “No” vote is against giving two hours). Rep. Jessica Giannino No POST HOW REPRESENTATIVES VOTED ON BILLS IN COMMITTEE (H 3930) House 38-121 and 41-117, rejected two similar amendments that would require that committees make public how each legislator on the committee voted on whether or not to favorably report a bill to the House. This would replace a section of the proposed rules that would only post the names of legislators who voted against the bill and list the aggregate vote tally without names, of members voting in the affi rmative or not voting. “The public has a right to know where their legislators stand on the issues being debated in committee, and it makes absolutely no sense to identify by name only those members who vote no at an executive session or on a poll,” said Rep. Brad Jones, sponsor of one of the amendments. “When we vote in the House chamber, our individual votes are displayed for all to see, and legislative committees should be held to the same standard by providing full disclosure of where each member stands on a given issue.” “I believe every resident of Massachusetts has the right to hold their elected state representative accountable,” said Rep. Erika Uyterhoeven (D-Somerville), the sponsor of the other amendment. “Under current rules, there is no accountability on the votes we take in committee. This amendment ensures that every vote taken in committee is available to the public, including when bills are sent to study.” Rep. Joe Wagner (D-Chicopee) opposed the listing of which representatives vote yes or did not vote. “The names of votes of those voting in the negative being there for everyone to see is Page 19 suffi cient in terms of transparency,” said Wagner during the debate on the House floor. “I have always been concerned, and I’ve chaired committees for about 20 years, and I have been always concerned that when we take votes in committee, the votes that we take to advance legislation does not refl ect necessarily, when an affi rmative vote is taken, the support for the matter as it is before the committee.” Wagner continued, “So for example, there are points at which members will vote affi rmatively to move a matter from a committee because they support the idea conceptually of a particular piece of policy or legislation. But with that support affi rmatively, if that was a fi nal form that the legislation may take. And so I think that where a vote in the negative is very clear, a vote in the affi rmative is less clear. And there are interest groups and there are people frankly who may have agendas and would use a vote in the affi rmative, if a member’s name were attached in that way, to try and discredit a member perhaps or potentially misconstrue a member’s position on a particular issue.” (Both roll calls are listed. On both roll calls, A “Yes” vote is for the amendment. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Jessica Giannino No/No EXTEND THE EMERGENCY RULES FOR COVID-19 (H 3929) House 130-30, approved a measure that would extend until October 1, 2021, the emergency rules under which the House has been operating since the COVID-19 pandemic began more than a year ago. There was no debate on the proposal. House Speaker Ron Mariano (D-Quincy) told reporters his team wanted to keep temporary rules in place “until we were sure the pandemic was over.” “The House of Representatives has been operating under emergency rules throughout the COVID-19 pandemic in response to the many public health and safety issues surrounding the coronavirus, and those temporary rules should be allowed to expire as planned on July 15,” Rep. Brad Jones told Beacon Hill Roll Call. “Now that more than four million Massachusetts residents are fully vaccinated, and the rest of the state has opened up, I cannot see any valid reason why the House should continue to operate under a diff erent standard than the rest of the commonwealth.” (A “Yes” vote is for extending the emergency rules. A “No” vote is against the extension). Rep. Jessica Giannino 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 July 5-9, the House met for a total of 15 hours and 45 minutes while the Senate met for a total of three hours and 19 minutes, Mon. July 5 No House session No Senate session Tues.

Page 20 OBITUARIES Frederick J. Ambrosino (Retired Lt RPD) THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, JULY 16, 2021 BEACH | FROM Page 11 “This time of year serves as O f Revere on July 8, 2021 at the age of 98. Born in Boston on December 13, 1922 to the late Alfonzo and Genieve (D’Amore). Beloved husband of 64 years to the late Margaret (Margareci). Devoted father of Paul Ambrosino and his wife Joan of Peabody, and Thomas Ambrosino and his partner Laurie Giardella of Nahant. Cherished grandfather of Brianna, Brittany, and Alexandra. Adored great grandfather of Olivia and Eva Sweezey. Dear brother of Gilda “Gail” Hagstrom of Revere, and the late Mary Alba, Violet Finamore and Phillip, Louis, Anthony and Alphonse Ambrosino. Also survived by many loving nieces and nephews. Frederick was a Revere High Class of 1940 graduate. He proudly served his country in the United States Army during WWII under General Patton in the 3rd Army. His group was engaged in battle in the European Theatre and Battle of the Bulge where he would go on to receive the European African Middle Eastern Theatre Campaign Ribbon, Good Conduct Medal, American Theatre Campaign Ribbon, the Victory Medal and the French Legion of Honor Medal. Upon his return to Massachusetts Frederick became a Revere Police Offi cer retiring in 1987 as a Lieutenant after 35 years of service. He will be sorely missed by all who knew him. In lieu of fl owers donations may be made in Frederick’s name to Immaculate Conception Church, 133 Beach St., Revere, MA 02151. a great opportunity to explore Massachusetts’ many waterfronts, but as is clear from the tragic number of water-related accidents the Commonwealth has seen so far this year, it is critical that all visitors be diligent about water safety to help keep everyone safe,” said Theoharides. “The health and safety of Massachusetts residents and visitors is the Baker-Polito Administration’s top priority, and we are continuing and increasing eff orts to inform the public about dangerous places to swim at state parks, as well as safe, fun alternatives to swim and cool off .” “Summer is here and this highly-anticipated season is bringing more and more people to DCR waterfronts, where we all must be diligent in our eff orts to ensure a fun, safe visit,” said Montgomery. “We ask that all visitors heed park signs, staff direction, and today’s water safety recommendations. Additionally, DCR continues to interview, train, and hire candidates to serve as agency lifeguards throughout the state, and we are proud to announce that we are increasing pay for these incredibly imSKATING CENTER www.Roller-World.com 781-231-1111 HELP WANTED Skate Guards • Snack Bar    Adults Prefered - Hours Can Be Arranged Open 7 Days Per Week Call Jerry at 617-620-9201 or Michelle at 781-233-9507 Located at 425R Broadway (Route 1 South), Saugus MBTA Bus Route 429 portant members of our staff .” As part of DCR’s commitment to the safety of beachgoers and appreciation for the agency’s lifeguard staff , DCR has announced a $3 pay increase for all DCR lifeguards, who will now receive $20 per hour (or $21 per hour for head lifeguards). Additionally, lifeguards who remain committed for the entire season with DCR will also receive a $500 bonus at the end of the season. DCR lifeguards are professional rescuers who are trained to prevent injuries and respond in the event of an emergency to help save a life. As part of a team, lifeguards must work together calmly and effi ciently to manage crisis situations. “We know that most drownings occur in the summer months, particularly July and August,” said Acting Public Health Commissioner Margret Cooke. “Drowning is swift and silent – there may be little splashing or cries for help and it can take as few as 20 seconds to sink below the water. It is so important to learn to swim as early as possible, to only swim where swimming is allowed, and to follow safety tips while enjoying water whether around a pond, lake, river, ocean, or pool this summer.” “The range of victims whose losses we have endured in the last few weeks shows that water-related tragedies play no favorites. From an infant in Wrentham, to two boys in Brockton, to an adult male earlier this week in Shrewsbury, to the teenager who drowned in Turtle Pond in Hyde Park, to Police Offi cer Manny Familia, who made the ultimate sacrifi ce trying to save another teenage boy in a Worcester pond – among numerous other victims – every drowning incident has left loved ones and friends with irreparable holes in their hearts and their lives,” said Mason. “The American Red Cross has developed a variety of water safety and Learn-to-Swim programs that our aquatic training providers offer. Programs are available for a variety of ages and abilities including our Parent and Child Aquatics and Preschool Aquatics courses. Many providers also off er courses for adults,” said American Red Cross of Massachusetts CEO Holly Grant.

Mariano ignored MassFiscal’s call for transparency, and the Speaker’s emergency House rules are set to expire on July 15. In early January, the newly elected Speaker took the controversial measure of extending emergency House rules that were originally enacted at the onset of the COVID-19 pandemic. The temporary House rules delayed debate and roll call votes on the permanent House rules, which outline the parameters of operation and govern debate in the House of Representative’s two-year legislative session. Despite Speaker Mariano’s opaqueness and gamesmanship, Senate President Karen Spilka and the State Senate passed their rules in February. MassFiscal Spokesperson/ Board Member Paul Craney said, “Mariano’s Speakership has operated under a cloud of secrecy in which the House doesn’t even have its own rules voted on. No democracy can endure this level of prolonged secrecy…Under ~ HELP WANTED ~ Bilingual Italian or Spanish speaking woman wanted for senior citizen. Light housekeeping, preparing dinner.

Fluent in Chinese, Cantonese, Italian & Spanish! Speaker Mariano’s lawless leadership, he’s passed several controversial bills and he is planning to spend billions of dollars in the budget process and from federal COVID relief money. How can the public, or rank and fi le House members, be expected to weigh in if the State House is closed to the public and there are no permanent rules for the House? The answer is that they aren’t.” “By now it’s clear to anyone carefully watching that Speaker Mariano is most frightened of transparency. He will go to great lengths to keep it as far away as possible,” said Craney.
