MARKEY SCORES REELECTION WIN see page 15 Vol.29, No.36 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday 781-286-8500 Friday, September 4, 2020 Giannino wins Democratic State Rep. Primary C By Adam Swift ouncillor-at-Large Jessica Ann Giannino cruised to victory Tuesday night in the Democratic primary to replace RoseLee Vincent as the state representative in the 16th Suff olk District. Giannino outpaced Joe Gravellese, a former aide to Mayor Brian Arrigo, by about a 60-40 margin across the district, which comprises a large chunk of Revere and portions of Chelsea and Saugus. On the Republican side of the ballot, Philip Russo mounted a write-in campaign for the representative seat. Write-in votes were being hand-counted across the district to see if he garnered the 150 necessary to appear on the November general election ballot. Unofficial results on primary night showed Giannino defeating Gravellese 3,093 to 2,017. Across the district, AP results showed Giannino prevailing 3,770 to 2,396. “I don’t have words for how grateful I am and how truly overwhelmed by the amount of support and kindness people have shown myself and my family over WINNING FAMILY: City Councillor Jessica Ann Giannino celebrated her Primary win with her grandmother JoAnn and her father Christopher. (Advocate photo by Tara Vocino) the past few months,” said Giannino during an interview on RevereTV late on election night. “For years, the 16th Suff olk District has been represented by strong women who knew how to get things done,” Giannino said. “They have been in leadership at the State House and given a new generation of elected offi cials a lot to live up to.” Gravellese said he spoke to both Giannino and Vincent after the votes came in to let them know he’s ready to help on shared policy interests with them. “I’m incredibly grateful that 2,200 people voted for me,” said Gravellese. “When I got into the race, I didn’t think that that many people would vote.” Election Commissioner Diane Colella said more than 6,000 of Revere’s 29,218 voters took advantage of mail-in ballots, absentee ballots, or early voting. Colella said that even with the large number of early ballots, the polls were still busy throughout the day on Tuesday. Due to the COVID-19 pandemic, election night had a different feel on Tuesday night, as few candidates were spotted at City Hall, and the election staff took over the City Council Chambers to check in the ballot boxes. Still, election workers began taping the familiar vote tally strips to the wall outside the Chambers shortly after 8 p.m., and all the precincts were accounted for by 9:30 p.m. In other contested races, Terrence Kennedy outpaced challenger Helina Fontes, 4,225 to 2,142, in Revere in the Democratic Governor’s Council race, and Felix Arroyo got 5,226 votes to 1,120 WINS | SEE Page 8 Part-time bus drivers, cafeteria workers to be $1.59 W GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal. Min. 24 Hr. Service 781-286-2602 offered furloughs due to remote learning By Adam Swift ith remote learning scheduled to get underway in the Revere schools on Sept. 16, there won’t be much to do for the district’s cafeteria workers, crossing guards, bus drivers and bus monitors. Last week, the School Committee authorized Superintendent of Schools Dr. Dianne Kelly to see if those part-time workers would take a voluntary furlough. The furlough would allow the employees to collect unemployment and put them in a position to be hired back by the district if and when the schools move toward a hybrid learning model with students in the buildings. “In light of the fact that we’re not going to have any students coming to our schools for the foreseeable future, I think it would be prudent for the School Committee to consider the viability of keeping all staff in the cafeteria, crossing guards, bus drivers and bus monitors on staff in light of a very diffi - cult budget this year,” said Kelly. “I think it should be considered by the School Committee as the fi scal agents of the school department.” Rather than cutting the positions outright, the School Committee approved a motion by employees, we will get a good sense of what those next steps will be.” School Committee Member Fred Sannella said the district has to act quickly to fi nd out if the employees will take the furlough. “We can’t see 120 people going a month, because if it is not accepted, they will be laid off ,” Sannella said. Kelly said late last week that Dr. DIANNE KELLY Supt. of Schools Member Carol Tye to get information on if the employees would be willing to take part in a furlough program. “I do appreciate the idea of an optional furlough program as a fi rst step to really consider how we best move forward with these staff members,” said Mayor Brian Arrigo. “Giving the option is an important piece, and off ering it to those she would begin reaching out to union leaders and administrators as soon as possible. “A furlough means folks will still be employed by the school district; they will just not be paid while we are not utilizing their services,” said Kelly. “But when we are able to come back to a hybrid model of learning where we have kids coming in every day, their jobs would still be promised to them. At that time, they could choose to come back or resign. They will be able to collect unemployment.”

Page 2 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Jon E. Norton Leading a Life of Giving to Community “Older adults want to be happy living in their own home. I give to Mystic Valley Elder Services because people want to be at home when they receive care!” exclaimed Jon E. Norton. Mr. Norton has served on the Mystic Valley Elder Services Board of Directors for the past two decades. He is a firm believer in the importance of care options and personal choice for older adults and adults living with disabilities. “Home care is very, very important. Getting the right help and good help makes it possible for people to stay in their homes as they grow older,” shares Mr. Norton. The City of Everett has always been “home” to Mr. Norton. He was raised in Everett and made certain that his mother, as she grew older, could remain in Everett in an accessible condominium with the care she needed until her death. So, when asked to serve on the Mystic Valley Elder Services Board by Mayor David Ragucci of Everett in 2000, Mr. Norton readily agreed. Jon E. Norton He continues to generously give his time and donations to this day – “I want to know what I can do to help people. I think my role as a Board Member and as a donor can ensure that older adults will get the care they need and be taken care of the right way.” Mr. Norton is someone who has led a life of giving to others. He influenced the lives of many 4th, 5th and 6th graders through his 35-year career as a public elementary school teacher, first in Burlington and then Melrose. This was followed by his career of public service for the City of Everett, serving as Chairman of the Conservation Commission for many years. He continues to serve on this commission, having proudly never missed a meeting. He also served as Everett’s City Recycling Coordinator for years. When asked about the future, Mr. Norton said that he believes donors know that Mystic Valley Elder Services does important work that must continue. He also shared that legacy giving is definitely very important for donors to consider. Leonard Florence Center for Living resident Eleanor Karp turns 106 CHELSEA – If anyone knows the secret to longevity, it is Eleanor Karp, a much-beloved resident at the Leonard Florence Center for Living. Eleanor turned 106 on September 1. What a milestone event for an extraordinary woman! Born on September 1, 1914, in Dorchester, Eleanor was the youngest of three. She loved school, dancing and socializing with her many friends. In fact, Eleanor met her husband, Henry Karp, through her girlfriend, who ultimately turned out to be her sister-in-law! It was love at fi rst sight. Eleanor and Henry married on June 26, 1938. Before starting a family, Eleanor worked at Schrafft’s, the renowned candy company in Charlestown. After her sons, Michael and Harvey, were born, Eleanor devoted her time to running the household. Celebrations played a huge role in their lives. “The Jewish holidays were legendary in our house,” said son Harvey Karp. “We had at least 30 people, with the tables extending into three rooms.” Added Harvey, “My mom is an amazing cook; her brisket, matzah ball soup, gefi lte fi sh and stuff ed knadles were the best I have ever eaten. She even made her own horseradish!” Eleanor and Henry lived in Everett and Malden for most of their married life. They led a highly active social life, frequently entertaining friends and family. Henry was one of eight siblings – four boys and four girls – and Eleanor was extremely close to all of them. She organized huge family outings every summer. Eleanor and Henry were married for 46 wonderful years. Sadly, Henry passed away in 1984 at 74 years of age. Adored by her children – son Pictured from left to right are Harvey, Henry, Eleanor and Michael Karp. Harvey and his wife Jeanne and son Michael and his wife Charlene – Eleanor cherishes her four grandchildren and seven great-grandchildren. She presides over the family with love, warmth and humor. In 2010, Eleanor moved from the Jack Satter House in Revere to the Cohen Florence Levine Estates Assisted Living in Chelsea. Both staff and residents have adored her! She has loved ELEANOR KARP the bus trips and visits to area restaurants, especially Jimmy’s Steakhouse, The Continental and Kowloon. Meals in the dining room at Cohen Florence Levine Estates have been the highlight of her day. “Eleanor is a truly remarkable woman,” said daughter-inlaw Jeanne Karp. “She is generous, loving, sharp and fun to be around. Actually, I can’t imagine having a better mother-in-law.” “Eleanor brings a sense of warmth to everyone she comes into contact with,” said Leonard Florence Center for Living Recreation Program Director Joseph “Coty” Miller. “An amazing cook herself, she is always helping the chefs tweak their recipes to perfection.” Miller described Eleanor as full of life. “Eleanor possesses wisdom, intellect and wit. Her stories about her life are overwhelmingly joyful and insightful. In short, Eleanor Karp is truly one of kind.” Harvey and Jeanne Karp are thrilled Eleanor is a resident at the Leonard Florence Center for Living. “We feel extremely fortunate she is living in such a beautiful building with a private room and bath, but even more importantly, we are deeply grateful to the incredible staff at the Center,” said Jeanne Karp. “They genuinely care about her.” When asked the secret to her longevity, Eleanor is very matter of fact. “Who would ever have expected me to live to 106?” she asked. “Yet here I am!”

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Page 3 DCR implements parking reduction along Revere Beach By Adam Swift I f there’s an extended Summer rush at Revere Beach this fall, beachgoers might have some trouble fi nding a parking spot near the beach. Earlier this week, the state’s Department of Conservation & Recreation (DCR), which manages approximately 1,070 parking spaces along Revere Beach Boulevard, announced that eff ective immediately, parking capacity would be reduced by 50 percent at DCRmanaged properties. The DCR is working in conjunction with the City of Revere, and the reduction in parking will be in eff ect until further notice, according to DCR spokesperson Olivia Dorrance. The DCR warned that parking reduction could aff ect traffi c on surrounding streets. “The parking reduction is similar to a recent measure taken by the agency and local offi cials at Nantasket Beach in the Town of Hull,” said Dorrance. The move is part of an eff ort to aid in the prevention of spreading the COVID-19 virus, and the DCR is working with the City to prevent overcrowding at the reservation, Dorrance stated. Council wants action on overflowing dumpsters By Adam Swift I t’s bad enough living in the midst of a pandemic without windswept visions of overfl owing dumpsters and trash blowing down the street thrown on top of it. That’s one of the reasons why the Revere Beautifi cation Committee recently reached out to several City Councillors, asking them to ask the mayor to request that the Inspectional Services department enforce the city’s dumpster regulations. “We want to make sure the ordinance is being enforced,” said Ward 3 Councillor Arthur Guinasso. With the beautifi cation committee working to keep the city looking in tip-top shape, and the council spending a lot of time on quality of life issues such as rodent control, Guinasso said it only makes sense that the city keeps an eye out for open, overfl owing, and nuisance dumpsters. DUMPSTERS | SEE Page 8 News Analysis: Don’t poke the bear... just ask Ed Markey By Steve Freker W hen Joe Kennedy III fi rst announced he would challenge Malden’s own Ed Markey for the U.S. Senate seat, the pundits and pollsters tripped over themselves trying to establish Kennedy as the oddson favorite. They beefed it up, too. It was 14 points, they said, though eschewing the “shoo-in” label, After all, there was a campaign to run, of course. All told, reactions were mixed. “It’s about time,” some undoubtedly said, embracing Kennedy’s pledge to “shake up the status quo in Washington.” “His time has passed, time for a change,” they might have added, in reference to Senator Markey. Others were more than mildly irritated by the move, they of the “wait your turn” mentality, despite being in a world seemingly fueled and driven by the then 1989 Queen megahit, “I Want it All and I Want it Now.” “Who are you to challenge Ed Markey?” they wondered aloud. “Ed’s been doing a fi ne job for all these years and he’s got some great new initiatives and ideas like the Green New Deal out there right now. There’s no reason for him to go anywhere. He’s got work to fi nish.” Even supporters of Markey must have had their doubts. Maybe some of them even had fl eeting thoughts of the Senator perhaps stepping aside from a reelection bid in light of the latest developments. They were wrong. So very wrong. Kennedy and his supporters did something that many of us know that you should never do. They poked the bear. Don’t poke the bear. Ed Markey’s response to Kennedy’s offi cial announcement was about as swift as the polling numbers rolling in Tuesday night lighting up his primary win.

I took a job at Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution fresh out of college, determined to make a career in opera while working as a research technician. A few years later, as I was about to move to the Boston area to be closer to the musical action, I attended a presentation at my church by a woman who was about to become the Minister of Missions at St. Paul’s Episcopal Church in Malden. Part of her work would be to oversee a new ministry the church had begun to the hungry and homeless. I knew instantly that I wanted to be part of that church and I soon was on the Missions Committee. Meanwhile, I realized that my work in the lab was not using my gifts and passions. I started praying about what work God might be leading me to do. I was drawn to the idea of working oversees in a refugee camp, but it became clear to me that I was too young and inexperienced to have much to off er people in that desperate situation. I needed to stay put and learn a few things. I started volunteering and doing some sub work at the Pine Street Inn in Boston. Then, in 1988 Tri-City Community Action Program created the position of Homeless Advocate to work at the St. Paul’s evening meal, the ministry that eventually became Bread of Life. It seemed too good to be true. It was the exact fi t for a saying of Jesus that tugged at my conscience: “For I was hungry and you gave me something to eat, I was thirsty and you gave me something to drink.” Matthew 25:35. I applied for the job and was interviewed by Tri-CAP staff and by Tom Feagley, the ministry director. Amazingly, they hired me! To this day, I see that call to be the greatest miraculous intervention of God in my life. I became a fellow pilgrim with Tom and many, many other loving people with hearts broken by what breaks God’s heart: poverty, hunger, homelessness, injustice, violence, neglect, loneliness. As we work to build our Under One Roof multi-purpose facility to serve more neighbors well into the future, I’m forever grateful to do this work feeding, advocating, coming alongside, and loving people just like me who are going through hard and lonely places in their lives. And I’m forever grateful for fellow pilgrims like you on the journey. May God bless Bread of Life with another 40 years and beyond! And may God bless each of you.

Malden Public Schools Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Health Charlie Conefrey told the Malden School Committee last week that the GBL powers-that-be are considering moving some or all fall sports to the newly-designated “Fall 2” season, which is tentatively set for the period February 22, 2021-April 25, 2021. The GBL consists of fi ve full members – the public high schools of Everett, Malden, Medford, Revere and Somerville – as well as a sixth school, Chelsea High School, which is at present an independent. Chelsea is designated as a scheduling partner of the GBL schools for the 202021 school year and is planning to join the GBL as a full league member in the fall of 2021 for the 2021-22 school year. Several meetings on the issue of “What will GBL Fall Sports look like” have been held at various school and city levels, including Malden Public Schools Director of Athletics, Physical Education and Health Charlie Conefrey is also chairman of the MIAA’s District G and a fi rst-year member of the MIAA’s Board of Directors. (Courtesy Photo/MHS Blue and Gold) this week, but a fi nal decision has yet to be reached, Conefrey said Wednesday. The main point of contention is whether or not GBL schools will compete in games, in any individual sports, this traditional fall season, or would fall sports all be pushed to the “Fall 2” season designation. A major part of the conversation is the recent color-coded system released by the offi ce of Governor Charlie Baker which has rated individual communities according to the rate of COSPORTS | SEE Page 18 Summer is Here!

DUMPSTERS | FROM Page 3 “One of the biggest problems in the city is with dumpsters,” said Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna. “On a windy day … all the things could be coming out of a dumpster.” In addition to there being fences around dumpsters, McKenna said the city needs to enforce the ordinance to make sure the lids are closed on the trash receptacles. “We need to make sure it’s not an open dumpster and the lids are always shut,” she said. “They should be fi ned if they are open. That would limit some of the litter that comes from these dumpsters.” Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino praised the beautifi cation committee for its eff orts in bringing the issue forward and going around to count every Revere dumpster. “The dumpster issue has kind of been an issue where people are leaving their dumpsters open at apartment complexes and at businesses and restaurants. I won’t name and shame, but I know there is a business on Squire Road that their dumpster is on the sidewalk near the rotary and sometimes people have to walk around it.” Serino also pointed out that there is an apartment complex on North Shore where the dumpster is always open, leaving a steady stream of trash fl owing down the street. “This is a great motion, and like all ordinances we have as a city, we need the enforcement to back it up, otherwise there are no teeth,” said Council President Patrick Keefe.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Page 9 The Coronavirus Count Revere has 79 new confi rmed COVID-19 cases; city has state’s 3rd highest rate over the last 14 days R evere had the third highest average daily incidence of COVID-19 cases among Massachusetts communities over a recent two-week period, according to statistics released on Wednesday (Sept. 2) by the state Department of Public Health (DPH). The city had a daily incidence rate of 20.9 new cases per 100,000 over the period of August 9 through 22. Only Chelsea (29.4) and Westhampton (21.0) had higher rates over that time span. This marked the fourth consecutive week that Revere was among a handful of communities marked in red on a state map – the designation for a high-risk community for having a daily rate of 8 or more cases per 100,000 over the most recent 14-day reporting period. The city had ranked second in the state last week and third in the previous two weeks. Meanwhile, the state reported 79 new cases of COVID-19 in Revere over the past week, raising the total to 2,354 confi rmed cases. The most recent statistics show that 25,096 city residents have been tested for the virus so far – including 3,964 over the past 14 days. Of those tested, there were 228 confi rmed cases of the virus for a positivity rate of 5.75 percent during that time. That is more than fi ve times the average state positivity rate of 1.3 percent. Last week’s positivity rate was 5.51 percent. That was more than four times the state positivity average of 1.3 percent over the same period. People can compare the number of COVID-19 cases confirmed in Revere to those in neighboring cities and towns as well as communities of similar size by going to the DPH website at https://www.mass.gov/ info-details/covid-19-responsereporting – click on COVID-19 cases by city/town. Here’s how nine area communities compare to Revere: Lynn: 4,507 cases, 259 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 5.00 percent positivity. Average daily incidence rate per 100,000 last 14 days – 12.1, sixth highest in the state. Revere: 2,354 cases, 228 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 5.75 percent positivity. Average daily incidence rate per 100,000 last 14 days – 20.9, third highest in the state. Everett: 2,083 cases, 120 total positive tests in the last 14 days, 4.93 percent positivity.

City Councilor George Rotondo is on the right track. As a retired police offi cer of 28 years, I was glad to see the Revere City Council approved a motion by Rotondo that could eventually bring these body cameras to the Revere Police Department. I know many police offi cers are for the idea and many others are against it. I believe body cams will protect both police officers and provide accountability. It will protect police and it will provide the community with the knowledge that transparency is fi rst priority for the city’s police department in dealing with the public they serve and protect. Now is the time for the police union and the mayor’s offi ce to get together and make it happen. There should be no adversarial role in making this happen. It would benefi t all parties concerned. The City Council is just the fi rst step of many that hopefully will end up in the right place for both the public and the police. I thank City Councilor George Rotondo for getting the ball rolling on this issue at this critical moment of time our nation is going through.

Page 12 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Governor proclaims September to be Emergency Preparedness Month G overnor Charlie Baker has proclaimed September to be Emergency Preparedness Month to encourage residents, families and organizations to prepare for emergencies and disasters. September is also National Preparedness Month. The Commonwealth will kick-off the annual observance by launching a public Thank You campaign on social media to recognize the tireless eff orts of essential workers and organizations that are doing so much to keep the Commonwealth prepared and safe during the COVID-19 pandemic. “The COVID-19 pandemic has underscored the importance of emergency preparedness, and the role we all must play in better preparing our homes, workplaces and communities for the unexpected,” said Baker. “It has also highlighted the incredible contributions of so many individMassort Noise Complaint Line: 617-561-3333 uals who have stepped up every day to ensure that essential services and goods continued to be delivered throughout this public health emergency.” “Emergency Preparedness Month provides us with an opportunity each year to focus on what we can do to make ourselves and our families better prepared,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “Especially now, we are thankful for all the tireless eff orts of the Commonwealth’s essential workers throughout the COVID-19 pandemic.” Visitors to Mass.Gov/EPmonth can download a certificate of appreciation to thank an essential worker or organization in their community. After personalizing the certifi cate, residents are asked to post a picture of the certificate to the social media platform of their choice with the hashtag #EPisEssential. “Everyone plays an important role in staying prepared, especially in the face of new challenges posed by the pandemic,” said Public Safety and Security Secretary Thomas Turco. “I hope these initiatives raise awareness of present-day risks, outline measures we all should be taking, and facilitate collaboration between the public and private sectors. When we embrace preparedness, we all have an opportunity to serve our communities.” “Preparedness takes a whole community effort and during the COVID-19 pandemic so many essential workers and organizations across the Commonwealth have worked tirelessly to keep medical services operating, public safety operations functioning, food, medicine and commodities stocked, and other vital needs met during the COVID-19 pandemic,” said Massachusetts SENATE | FROM Page 3 ponent in Kennedy... and that he expected to win and continue to champion the causes he initiated and the causes supported by his Massachusetts. In short, he was loaded for bear. What we witnessed was a revitalized Ed Markey who hit the campaign trail as soon as the pandemic restrictions lessened a bit in mid-June, and launched what was essentially a 10-week campaign leading up to Tuesday’s Sept. 1 primary. As late as June, the “experts” Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) Director Samantha Phillips. During September, MEMA and the state Department of Public Health will share information on their respective social media accounts about emergency preparedness topics, including emergency planning, building an emergency kit, preparing for disasters, youth preparedness and ways to get involved in community preparedness. This emergency preparedness information includes guidance about how to prepare for emergencies during the COVID-19 public health emergency. The state Department of Transportation will feature signage along highways to raise awareness of Emergency Preparedness Month.

This did not seem to faze Markey and his campaigners at all. Perhaps it gave them more motivation. Young people – college students and many of those in the coveted 18-34 age group – began to gravitate toward Markey in droves. In Bernie Sanders-esque fashion, they Tweeted, Instagrammed and SnapChatted Markey to new heights on social media. “Markeyverse” was launched and tall, smiling Ed Markey ate it all up, while sporting his clunky, but classic, 1987 Air Jordans. Three weeks ago it was called a “dead heat.” Three days ago, it was Ed Markey in the lead... just about everywhere. Tuesday night? The “all gas, no brakes” fi nish got Malden’s Markey to the finish line on the day he called “Game Seven of the World Series.” Go get fitted for the ring, champ. You won it! The transformation from unexpected underdog facing an unsuspected challenge to a beaming, tireless, energetic winner was complete. There are plenty of people in this area who check all the same boxes as Ed Markey does on his “to do” list and lots of others who just don’t agree with his politics and ideas. A lot of both voted for him Tuesday, some did not. But just about anyone who lives in these parts would agree with the following statement. Don’t poke the bear. You probably won’t get the result you expected or wanted.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Page 13 Baker launches additional intervention initiatives for high-risk COVID-19 communities T he Baker-Polito Administration recently stepped up its targeted initiative to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in communities across the Commonwealth with the highest number of positive cases. This initiative brings even greater focus to the top 5 highest-risk communities with regular neighborhoodlevel assessments and a comprehensive multi-lingual public messaging campaign. The initiative focuses eff orts on Chelsea, Everett, Lawrence Lynn and Revere. The Commonwealth’s COVID-19 Enforcement and Intervention Team (CEIT), in partnership with local community offi cials, is leading this eff ort. This targeted initiative includes regular meetings with local leadership to understand residential and business activities contributing to trends, an even greater level of state focus to stop the spread and a new public messaging campaign. The goal of the public messaging campaign is to ensure residents know they live in a high-risk community and reiterate the importance of wearing a mask and other best practices to stop the spread. Built around a message of, “You have the power to save a life,” the comprehensive campaign will encourage the use of masks and social distancing and will run in English, Portuguese, Spanish, Haitian Creole, Vietnamese, Arabic and COVID | SEE Page 17 RMV offers by-appointment service hours for customers 75 years of age or older T he state Registry of Motor Vehicles (RMV) is announcing that it will begin offering dedicated service hours for customers who are 75 years of age or older and are required to renew their Massachusetts driver’s license in person.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Page 15 Markey scores reelection win over Kennedy Incumbent U.S. Senator comes full circle from underdog to commanding winner By Steve Freker F or someone other than Ed Markey, it might have raised an eyebrow when the victorious candidate strode to the openair podium, arm-in-arm with his wife and a radiant gleam in his eye as he began to speak. The tall victor looked resplendent and refreshed in a neat sport coat, not tired or worn down from seemingly endless campaign runs from one end of the state to another. Standing at the podium on the lawn of the Malden Public Library on Tuesday night, Markey seemed just serene and satisfi ed, from the top of his head... right down to those authentic 1987 Nike Air Revolution sneakers. To say Ed Markey is unique is an understatement. But really, how many U.S. Senators have given a major victory speech across our nation wearing Jordans? All the way back from down double-digits in June Then again, how many incumbents were down doubledigits to an upstart challenger just 10 weeks before the primary election and forcefully fl ipped the script to pull out a nearly 11-point victory? That’s unique. Trailing at many junctures to challenger U.S. Rep, Joe Kennedy III in the polls, the Maldenbred Markey tenaciously campaigned hard all summer and essentially ran on his record on a number of major issues. Called a dead heat just three weeks ago – Markey stuck to his frenetic campaign pace and made a stunning turnaround, grabbing the lead in every poll just days before Tuesday’s election, on his way to a 55-45 percent win by nearly 150,000 votes statewide. Sen. Markey, who is the heavy favorite to fend off a Republican challenger, Kevin O’Connor, in the General Election on Nomargin, 3,583 votes to Joseph Kennedy III’s 3,667 votes. Markey, who appeared at 11:00 p.m. in Malden at an open-air victory celebration on the lawn of the Malden Public Library in the heart of Malden Square, introduced and thanked his wife, Dr. Susan Blumenthal, and then thanked his supporters. Markey: “It is a celebration of a movement” “Tonight is more than just a HOMETOWN HERO: U.S. Senator Ed Markey celebrates his win over U.S. Congressman Joseph Kennedy III in the September 1 Primary Election. (Advocate photo by Josh London) vember 3, handed his primary foe the fi rst defeat a candidate from Kennedy’s extended family has ever sustained in Massachusetts politics. Markey, 74, a lifelong Malden resident who was fi rst elected to Congress nearly 50 years ago, in 1976, did it by harnessing the youth vote, exemplifi ed by an emphasis on social media and groups like @StudentsforMarkey fl ooding Twitter and Instagram with support for much of the 18-month campaign. Landslide wins in college towns a harbinger of support source Probably no better harbinger of Markey’s groundswell of support among younger voters in the 18-34 age bracket was how he dominated in college towns, such as Amherst and Northampton, nearing or topping 80 percent in both and bringing out near-record primary turnouts surpassing 50 percent there. Here in his hometown Malden, Markey also won big, taking a 69-31 percent victory (7,798-3,474 votes) over Kennedy, the eighth-highest percentage win of all communities in the Commonwealth. Malden also saw a larger than usual turnout of 39 percent, primarily due to the Markey-Kennedy race. Other big victories came in liberal Democratic strongholds, such as Cambridge (81-19 percent) and Arlington (77-34 percent). Markey also won the biggest prize, Boston, by a commanding 59-40 percent margin. In Revere, Markey lost by a slim celebration of an election; it is a celebration of a movement. Thank you to the thousands of grassroots supporters who organized around the principles that we believe in. We could not have done it without you,” Sen. Markey said. Markey recalled his Malden roots, including the very library where he studied “until they turned off the lights” while attending Boston College and then Boston College Law School, his parents “sitting at the kitchen table [in Edgeworth] trying to fi gure out how MARKEY | SEE Page 21 Wishing you a happy and safe Labor Day Weekend!

The complaint alleges that since 2013, CAC failed to inform investors that the company topped off the pools of loans that they packaged and securitized with higher-risk loans, despite claiming otherwise in disclosures to investors.

The state is seeking relief for Massachusetts borrowers harmed by these alleged practices, as well as civil penalties and injunctive relief. This lawsuit is part of Healey’s review of securitization practices in the subprime auto market – an industry-wide investigation that remains ongoing. Last year Exeter Finance paid more than $5.5 million for its role in fi nancing unfair subprime auto loans. Previously, Healey’s offi ce secured $22 million from Santander for its role in fi nancing subprime auto loans for Massachusetts residents.

The campaign includes: • A new online resource at Mass.gov/StopCOVID19 (Spanish: Mass.Gov/DetenCOVID19) (Portuguese: Mass.Gov/ PareCOVID19) (Additional multilingual online resources will be available soon) • Advertising on billboards, digital and social media • Downloadable materials in multiple languages • Multi-lingual fi eld teams deployed in the communities • Phone and text communications • Outreach to local community groups This new website Mass. gov/StopCOVID19 provides residents and local business owners with information on how to stop the spread, state restrictions on gathering sizes, testing locations and materials that can be printed for display in apartment complexes, restaurants and community areas. The campaign’s advertising will run on hundreds of displays, message boards, signs, billboards and other channels in these top 5 communities through paid partnerships and via state-owned resources, such as at MBTA stations, on MassDOT signs and much more. During Labor Day weekend, the fi eld teams will be active at approximately 15 locations in these top fi ve communities. All aspects of this campaign will expand throughout the fall. In early August, the Administration established CEIT through the COVID-19 Command Center. CEIT is a crossagency response unit, which includes representatives from the Community Tracing Collaborative, Department of Public Health, Alcoholic Beverages Control Commission, Massachusetts State Police, Department of Labor Standards and other agencies. Since it was launched, this team has worked closely with all higher-risk communities to help stop the spread of COVID-19 in areas that are persistently above the state average. CEIT partnered with local elected and community offi cials, including municipal leadership, police chiefs and local health departments, to assess trends and most eff ectively utilize resources. Collectively, these teams have enforced gathering size restrictions and shared with municipalities additional state support, such as testing and contact tracing information. In recent weeks, the statewide average daily incidence rate is 4.2 cases per 100,000 people, while Chelsea is 29.4, Revere is 20.9, Lynn is 12.1, Everett is 15.9 and Lawrence is 14.9. As new community data is reported, CEIT will adjust as cities and towns move into or out of higher-risk categories. Throughout September, the campaign will expand beyond the top fi ve communities. How to Prevent Falls During a Pandemic Dear Savvy Senior, My 80-year-old mother, who lives alone and is self-isolating during the coronavirus pandemic, has fallen several times. Are there any extra precautions you recommend that can help prevent this? Concerned Daughter Dear Concerned, Falls are a common concern for many elderly adults and their families, especially during the coronavirus pandemic when many seniors are sheltering at home alone. Each year, more than one-infour older Americans fall, making it the leading cause of both fatal and nonfatal injuries for those ages 65 and older. But many falls can be prevented. Depending on what’s causing your mom to fall, here are some diff erent tips that can help prevent it. Encourage exercise: Weak leg muscles and poor balance are two of the biggest risk factors that cause seniors to fall. Walking, strength training and tai chi are all good for improving balance and strength, as are a number of balance exercises your mom can do anytime like standing on one foot for 30 seconds then switching to the other foot, and walking heelto-toe across the room. For additional balance and leg strengthening exercises, see AgeBold.com. Review her medications: Does Space for Lease 3 Large Rooms, each with Large Walk-in Storage Area. or Aerobics Studio. Located at Route 1 South at Walnut Street. Rollerworld Plaza, Route 1 South, 425 Broadway, Saugus. Call Michelle at: 781-233-9507 your mom take any medicine, or combination of medicines, that make her dizzy, sleepy or lightheaded? If so, make a list or gather up all the drugs she takes – prescriptions and over the counter – and contact her doctor or pharmacist for a drug review and adjustment. Get a vision test: Poor vision can be another contributor to falls, so your mom should get her eyes checked once a year and be sure to update her eyeglasses if needed. Also be aware that if your mom wears bifocal or progressive lenses, they too can cause falls, especially when walking outside or going down steps. These lenses can aff ect depth perception, so she may want to get a pair of glasses with only her distance prescription for outdoor activities. If your mom is concerned about a trip into her eye doctor during the pandemic, she can get her vision tested online. Put a call her eye doctor about this option, or consider some online vision testing sites like Essilor.com or 6over6.com. And to buy eyeglasses online, some popular options include WarbyParker.com and ZenniOptical.com. Fall-proof her home: There are a number of simple household modifi cations you can do to make your mom’s living area safer. Start by helping her arrange or move the furniture so there are clear pathways to walk through and pick up items on the fl oor that could cause her to trip like newspapers, shoes, clothes, electrical or phone cords. If she has throw rugs, remove them or use double-sided tape to secure them. In the bathroom buy some non-skid rugs for the fl oors and a rubber suction-grip mat or adhesive non-skid tape for the fl oor of the tub or shower, and have a carpenter install grab bars in and around the tub/shower for support. Also, make sure the lighting throughout the house is good, purchase some inexpensive plugin nightlights for the bathrooms and hallways, and if she has stairs, put handrails on both sides. For more tips, see the NIA “fallproofi ng your home” web page at NIA.NIH.gov/health/fall-proofing-your-home. Choose safe footwear: Going barefoot or wearing slippers or socks at home can also cause falls, as can wearing backless shoes, high heels, and shoes with smooth leather soles. The safest option for your mom is rubbersole, low-heel shoes. Purchase some helpful aids: If your mom needs some additional help getting around, get her a cane or walker. Also, to help ensure your mom’s safety, and provide you some peace of mind, consider getting her a medical alert device that comes with a wearable emergency button that would allow her to call for help if she were to fall or need assistance.

Page 18 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 SPORTS | FROM Page 6 MASSHEALTH ELIGIBILITY OPERATIONS MEMO 20-16 M assHealth is now using the Social Security Administration (SSA) Life Estate and Remainder Interest Tables to calculate the value of remainder interests and life estates. It no longer is going to use the IRS Book Aleph Life Estate and Remainder Interest Tables which provide for the utilization of the Internal Revenue Code Section 7520 interest rates in eff ect at the time of valuation. This may very well lead to litigation as virtually all of the elder lawyers in the Mass Chapter of The National Academy of Elder Law Attorneys believe MassHealth should not be using the SSA tables. The problem is that the SSA tables use a higher percentage allocable to the life estate than to the remainder interest. In the future, if the home of a MassHealth applicant/ member is sold, more of the net sales proceeds will be allocated to the value of the life estate. As a result, the net sales proceeds are once again countable assets in the name of the applicant/member and will have to be spent down on nursing home care. Typically, a parent would be deeding the home to the children reserving a life estate in the deed itself. If all parties agree to sell the house, a calculation would have to be made in order to determine the amount of net sales proceeds allocable to the life tenant/parent and the remainderman/children. As an example, if the applicant/member/life tenant/parent and the remaindermen/ children sold the home and netted $232,000, assuming the parent was 87 years old at the time of sale, MassHealth will calculate the disqualifying transfer as follows: $232,000 x.32262 equals $74,848. If the parent is given back the $74,848, the money would have to be spent on nursing home care as he or she would be over the $2,000 limit. If the money is not given back to the parent, MassHealth will simply use that fi gure in order to determine the penalty period wherein MassHealth simply will not pay for nursing home coverage for the member/applicant. This is a very high percentage allocated to a life estate for someone 87 years of age. If the Book Aleph table was used, the percentage would drop to 2.146%. In our example, the value of the life estate would then only be $4,979! The disqualifying transfer would only be $4,979. The reason for this is the September, 2020 IRS Section 7520 interest rate is now down to.40 percent. I am hopeful that this issue will be litigated as it is just another example of MassHealth’s continuing attack on the elderly. Joseph D.

Unshaded are fi ve or fewer total active COVID-19 cases. According to Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA)–adopted guidelines, in conjunction with state guidance, cities and towns coded “Red” are not allowed to participate in high school athletics. As of Wednesday, the latest report issued by the Executive Offi ce of Environmental Aff airs (EEA), three of the six GBL communities – Chelsea, Everett and Revere – were three of the eight statewide listed in the “Red” category. The other three – Malden, Medford and Somerville – were designated “Yellow.” At the School Committee meeting, Conefrey acknowledged that this was a year like no other, in which an entire season, spring sports, this year was canceled outright due to COVID-19. “This is not going to be like any athletic year we have ever seen before,” said Conefrey, who is beginning his fi fth year as Director of Athletics. “We are looking for new and innovative ways to deal with our studentathletes, and we really hope it changes for the better. “But we are not going to make any decision, not one move, unless it is fully and completely in the best interests, safety and physical and emotional health of our students, coaches, staff and their families,” said Conefrey.

SALES * RENTALS * MANAGEMENT * BUYERS OF HOMES Board of Directors, the high school athletic calendar on August 14 was changed to provide for four sports seasons, as opposed to the traditional three: fall, winter and spring. The MIAA Board accepted recommendations of its Sports Medicine Committee and other committees before voting in favor of the four-season plan. Coincidentally, Conefrey just began his fi rst year as a member of the MIAA Board of Directors in July. He is also District G Chairman with the MIAA. Also on the MIAA Board is Malden High School House Principal Stephanie Sibley, who formerly served as a Board member when she was an administrator in the Boston Public Schools. As for fall sports, football has already been moved to the Fall 2 season. At this time, the GBL athletics directors and principals are considering whether to allow any fall sports to compete this fall, or move any or all to Fall 2 with football. Conefrey said he believes in the “all for one, one for all” mentality, in that if three of the GBL member schools cannot compete due to “Red” status by the EEA, then none of the GBL schools should compete this fall. “My biggest concern in any scenario is the day-to-day protocol, if and when we do return to playing games in any of the seasons – what type of prescreening of athletes and coaches would we have, what former of contact tracing, how we would respond to varying scenarios,” the Malden athletic director told the School Committee. Conefrey added that there would have to be a protocol in place where all information would have to be shared among league partners and any other opponents if teams played games. He said the MIAA Sports Medicine Subcommittee is tasked with coming up with further guidance for those matters. Another key consideration is that all six of the communities in the GBL group, including Everett, Malden and Revere, are opening their academic instruction in a fully remote learning mode. Conefrey said there are fundamental objections present among a number of stakeholders in the issue of fall sports and high school athletics in general who have diffi culty justifying how participation in interscholastic athletics can be allowed when students are not allowed to be educated in-person in their school buildings. Some leagues have already made decisions. The Northeastern Conference (NEC), of which the GBL schools were formerly members, have already voted to push fall sports to Fall 2. Other leagues, primarily parochial schools, like the Catholic Central League and Catholic Conference, have declared they will play all fall sports this year, excluding football. But many, if not most, of the parochial schools, which are tuition-based, are also having either fully in-person learning or a hybrid model weighted heavily to in-person attendance. Conefrey said he and the other GBL athletic directors are working to come up with a plan as soon as possible, with the start of school looming on September 16 for most of the member schools. “I’m a competitor,” said Conefrey – himself a 1997 Malden High graduate, former threesport standout, Golden Tornado Hall of Famer and former MHS coach – “and I want our kids out there as much as anyone. But not at the expense of a player, coach, staff or family member getting sick.” “We need and will have a decision based on safety; that is the bottom line,” Conefrey said.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 4, 2020 Page 21 MARKEY | FROM Page 15 to pay the bills.” The Senator also had positive words for his opponent in the hard-fought campaign, Joe Kennedy. “I look forward to working closely with Joe Kennedy to help move Massachusetts and this nation forward,” Markey said. Markey noted the advancement of his Progressive movement in this campaign. “The progressive movement knows how to fi ght. We will not surrender,” Markey said in his victory speech. “We made it clear that we’d rather lose fi ghting as hard as we could for what we believe in than in fi nding the middle ground.” He added, “The time to be timid is past. The age of incrementalism is over. Now is our moment to think big and take bold and urgent action. This is what this election is all about. This is what this moment demands.” “Young people not afraid to raise their voices” Markey praised his supporters around the state, particularly the young people who followed him from the outset and whose numbers grew as the race went on. “Our movement is fueled by young people who are not afraid to raise their voices or make enemies,” he said. “Tonight’s victory is a tribute to those young people and to their vision. They will save us if we trust them and I do.” In announcing a run for Senate, Kennedy had to forgo a reelection campaign for Congress. Speculation is that the other incumbent, Sen. Elizabeth Warren, would be a coveted appointee to a Cabinet position, possibly Education Secretary, if Democrat Joe Biden is elected President in November. That would force a Special Election to fi ll her seat, which Kennedy could pursue, though other speculation is that he might face off in another tough race, this time against a potential candidate, such as Congresswoman Ayana Pressley of Boston.

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports on the percentage of times local senators voted with their party’s leadership in 2020 through August 27. Beacon Hill Roll Call uses 104 votes from the 2020 Senate session as the basis for this report. This includes all roll calls that were not on local issues. The votes of the 34 Democrats were compared to Senate Majority Leader Cynthia Creem (DNewton), second-in-command in the Senate.

None of the 34 Democratic senators voted with Creem 100 percent of the time. Three senators voted with Creem all but one time: Sens. Julian Cyr (D-Truro), Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) and Adam Hinds (D-Pittsfi eld). Twenty-six (76.4 percent) of the 34 Democrats voted with Creem 90 percent or more of the time. Only eight (23.6 percent) voted with Creem less than 90 percent of the time. The Democratic senators who voted the lowest percentage of times with Creem were Sens. Anne Gobi (D-Spencer) who voted with Creem only 81.7 percent of the time; Diana DiZoglio (D-Methuen) 83.4 percent of the time; and John Velis (D-Westfi eld) 84 percent of the time. The votes of three Republican senators were compared with those of GOP Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). None of the three voted with Tarr 100 percent of the time. The Republican senator who voted the lowest percentage of times with Tarr was Sen. Ryan Fattman (R-Sutton) who voted with Tarr 93.2 percent of the time. Sen. Dean Tran (R-Fitchburg) voted with Tarr 94.1 percent of the time and Sen. Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth) sided with Tarr 98.0 percent of the time. PERCENTAGE OF TIMES SENATORS VOTED WITH THEIR PARTY’S LEADERSHIP The percentage next to the senator’s name represents the percentage of times the senator supported his or her party’s leadership. The number in parentheses represents the number of times the senator opposed his or her party’s leadership. Some senators voted on all 104 roll call votes. Others missed one or more roll calls. The percentage for each senator is calculated based on the number of roll calls on which he or she voted and does not count the roll calls for which he or she was absent. Sen. Joseph Boncore 98.0 percent 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 August 2428, the House met for a total of one hour and 15 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 20 minutes. Mon.
