Revere’s local news source for over 30 years! Vol. 31, No.36 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Revere voters go with Healey, Diehl for governor By Adam Swift R evere voters generally fall in line with voters statewide during Tuesday’s primary election. Attorney General Maura Healey topped the Democratic ticket for governor, while Trumpbacked former State Representative Geoff Diehl more than doubled Chris Doughty’s vote total in Revere on the Republican side. Healey and Diehl will square off in the state general election on November 8. Healey fi nished with 2,511 of the votes cast for governor on the Democratic ballot. State Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz, who withdrew from the race but was still on the ballot, fi nished with 646 votes. Diehl garnered 811 votes on the Republican ballot to Doughty’s 384. In the lieutenant governor’s race, Salem Mayor Kim Driscoll easily outdistanced the other two candidates in Revere and statewide, and will be on the ticket with Healey. On the Republican side, Leah Allen topped Kate Campanale, 707 to 392, locally. Statewide, Allen was less than 10,000 votes ahead of Campanale as of Wednesday morning.

(Advocate photo) Updated plans for Suffolk Downs open space presented to Conservation Commission By Adam Swift A n outdoor park and amphitheater at the Suffolk Downs development will serve a dual purpose. Wednesday night the Conservation Commission approved changes to the orders of conditions which will allow for the completion of the amphitheater basin as both a public space and a stormwater management area. “We understand that open space is a key aspect for all the future residents and tenants here, but also, we are in a very sensitive resource area, and having a high level of stormwater management treatment is important,” said project engineer Liz Clark. The basin, which is located on the edge of the property near Sales Creek, would have a wet bottom about six feet deep with subsurface chambers underneath to maximize stormwater fl ood storage. Clark said there will also be a data system with sensors and a valve that can open and close and adjust to fl ooding in real time. The basin will safely fi ll about two-thirds of the way up during 100-year fl ood events, according to Clark. “We really see this as a great opportunity to design a fully accessible public park that just happens to do all it needs to do from a stormwater standpoint,” said Founding Director Chris Reed of Stoss Landscape Urbanism. There will be a set of pathways all the way around the basin that will be fully accessible to the public, said Reed. “On the side closer to where the buildings will be, we’re looking at more active edges, so there will be stepped seat walls where people can gather under trees,” said Reed. The seat walls will be set up as if they are looking at a performance at a wood deck hovering over the water, he added. “We are really trying to do something that performs for stormwater that’s really a beautiful space for people to hang out in and that can host some activities and events, but that really works as an everyday park,” said Reed. Conservation Commissioner Joseph Lavalle raised some questions about mosquito control at the basin. Clark said there will be an aerator at the bottom of the basin that will help move the water and cut down on the potential mosquito population. Conservation Commissioner Brian Averback said he was excited when he fi rst heard that the amphitheater basin park is going to be part of the Suff olk Downs project. “It reminds me of what the town of Wakefi eld has with a lake that people can walk around,” he said. While the path around the basin will only total about oneeighth of a mile, Reed said, people looking to exercise can also use other planned paths near the basin.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 3 Chloe Gladu is September 2022’s Public Servant of the Month W hen the Mayor’s Office reached out to department heads about “stand-out” interns this summer, almost immediately three department heads suggested Chloe Gladu for Public Servant of the Month. Working as a paralegal in the Solicitor’s Offi ce, as well as being co-chair of the Revere Cultural Council, Chloe is an exemplary example of giving back to her community. Her help this summer in the Solicitor’s Offi ce and the Cultural Council – on-top of her full-time position as a teacher – makes Chloe a clear choice for this month’s Public Servant of the Month. Q: What do you do in the City of Revere? A: I am currently a paralegal in the Solicitor’s Offi ce at City Hall in the City of Revere.

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 ~ GUEST COMMENTARY ~ Campaign Underway to Repeal New Law Allowing Driver’s Licenses for Undocumented/Illegal Immigrants By Salvatore Giarratani A new law (H.4805) that would allow undocumented/illegal immigrants to apply for a Massachusetts driver’s license is scheduled to start July 1, 2023. Voters will be headed to the polls on Election Day, NoGerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order? Do you have an update Will, Health Care Proxy or Power of Attorney? If Not, Please Call for a Free Consultation. 14 Proctor Avenue, Revere (781) 284-5657 vember 8 so taxpayers, not Beacon Hill, can decide whether to repeal it or keep it. I was reminded about this important ballot question on November 8 after reading Beacon Hill Roll Call by Bob Katzen which runs in The Revere Advocate each week. This column is a great way to see just what our legislators up on Beacon Hill are doing in our name. The campaign to repeal the new law was steered by Maureen Maloney, whose son, Matt Denice, was killed by a drunk driver who did not have legal status in this country and illegally drove a motor vehicle. During the period that the petition drive was on, voters lined up in droves to sign the repeal voicing their opposition to the new law not even yet in eff ect. Opponents of the repeal campaign reportedly harassed and tried to prevent voters from signing the petition and in some cases forced local police to shut down volunteers from collecting more signatures. The other side obviously likes the new law that is coming if the voters don’t stop it on Election Day, November 8. One supporter of the new law, Elizabeth Sweet says, “The [law] keeps people safer by ensuring that all drivers, regardless of immigration status, know and follow the rules of the road, take the same driver’s test and have insurance when they need it.” Still trying to fi gure out what she means by “have insurance when they need it.” Isn’t the answer, all motor vehicles on the road need to be insured? I believe it is up to We the People of Massachusetts to decide if this new law is right for us. I do believe this new law could open the door to non-citizens voting. That is a real concern considering just how badly the RMV has performed of late, right? I trust voters will make the correct call in November. While the other side says, “We are disappointed that this unnecessary and divisive repeal question appears to be moving forward, we are more than determined than ever to defend the expansion of permission to apply for a driver’s license.” This ballot question is crystal clear who should or shouldn’t be able to apply for a MA driver’s license. Driving a motor vehicle in Massachusetts is not a right but a privilege. I didn’t say this, the Registry of Motor Vehicles states this. I am tired of those sob stories about illegal immigrants afraid to take their children to the doctor’s offi ce for fear of getting caught by the police. One fi nal question few want to answer. Does this mean that illegal or undocumented immigrants given driver’s licenses means that there will be no longer be unregistered or uninsured cars on the road? I was born at night but not last night. As the grandson of immigrants to this country, I am not anti-immigrant. Never have been. I am all for helping those who come here legally like my grandparents and the grandparents of many who are reading my words right here. We will need to fi nd a way to fi x our immigration policy because the status quo ain’t working out too well. However, driver’s licenses are not yet a top priority for most of us. Vote NO on driver’s licenses for illegal immigrants this November 8!

Members of the WAA famiWE'RE OPEN! 8 Norwood Street, Everett (617) 387-9810 STAY SAFE! ly, including staff , volunteers, Gold Star and Blue Star Families, and veterans, will join to share in the patriotic act of waving the fl ag, and sharing the stories of those who raised their hand to serve following the events of that fateful day. The fl ag waving will start at 8:46 am ET, when on Tuesday, Sept. 11, 2001, five hijackers took control of American Airlines Flight 11 and fl ew it into the heart of New York City and the northern facade of the World Trade Center's North Tower (1 WTC) and end at 10:03 am ET when four hijackers crashed United Airlines Flight 93 into a fi eld in Stonycreek Township near Shanksville, Penn., on the same day. You too can join by tuning in to the organization’s Official Facebook page, to share pictures and videos from your own community fl ag waving. Participants are encouraged to take video and pictures of their participation in the national fl ag waving and share them with WAA, their family, and their friends to help REMEMBER, HONOR and TEACH the generation born after 9/11, how hard times can strengthen us as a nation. Please use the hashtag #FlagsAcrosstheCountry and #AmericaStrong when posting on social media and tag the Wreaths Across America Offi cial Facebook page. WAA waves the American Flag every Tuesday morning between 9-10 a.m. ET and encourages the public to join them. Each week, messages of unity and remembrance are shared and the legacy of the “Freeport Flag Ladies” – who took to the Hill in Freeport on 9/11/01 following the events of that morning to hoist the fl ag and share a message of strength – lives on as it did each week for 18 years. After they retired on September 11, 2019, WAA took over the tradition and continues the weekly fl ag waving along US Route 1 in Jonesboro, Maine. “Each Tuesday, we are joined by dozens of members of the local community and curious people stopping to be part of something meaningful,” said Karen Worcester, Executive Director, Wreaths Across America. “I hope people will join us this year, both on the anniversary of 9/11, as well as each Tuesday moving forward. This fl ag waving has taken on new meaning for us all and given a spark of hope for unity and patriotism during this diffi cult time in our country.” Following the events of 9/11, three patriotic women (Elaine Greene, Joann Miller and Carmen Foote) were moved to fi nd an old American fl ag they had stored at home and stand on a hill in Freeport, Maine, waving that flag to honor victims. These women became nationally known as “The Freeport Flag Ladies,” and proudly hoisted the Stars and Stripes every Tuesday morning for the following 18 years. After they retired on September 11, 2019, (their last 9/11 remembrance) the following Tuesday, September 17, 2019, Wreaths Across America took the helm and continued the weekly fl ag-waving tradition along US Route 1 in Jonesboro, Maine.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 7 A Disagreement over Meeting Dates Panetta questions timing of Selectmen meeting on WIN Waste Innovations deal; Cogliano denies her request to wait until after DEP offi cials meet with town By Mark E. Vogler S augus Board of Selectmen Chair Anthony Cogliano has scheduled a meeting for Sept. 20 to begin discussions on WIN Waste Innovations’ proposed deal to pay the town up to $18 million in return for permission to extend the life of its ash landfi ll 25 years. But the board’s Vice Chair, Debra Panetta, said she and her colleagues should wait until after a community meeting with Massachusetts Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) offi cials about the future of the ash landfi ll before considering WIN’s proposed Host Community Agreement (HCA). “We should wait for the Sept. 28 meeting so we can make an informed vote,” Panetta told The Saugus Advocate this week after Cogliano denied her request. “I feel strongly that it would be imperative and prudent that before taking on any vote that we listen to what the DEP says. I think we should wait until the fi rst meeting in October [Oct. 4] before discussing the Host Community Agreement,” she said. Cogliano said he has no plans for rescheduling the Sept. 20 meeting. “I’m not waiting for anyone,” Cogliano said, in response to Panetta’s request. “I’m the Chairman – not Deb. I’ll set the time and the agenda for our meetings and I will always do what’s in the best interest of Saugus,” he said. “If the DEP has a problem with plan A, I will be happy to deliver them plan B.” State Rep. Jessica Giannino (D-Revere), whose district includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus, and state Rep. Jeff rey Turco (D-Winthrop), along with the Alliance for Health and Environment, are hosting a meeting set for 6 p.m. Sept. 28 in the second-fl oor auditorium of Saugus Town Hall at 298 Central St. The hosts have invited MassDEP offi - cials to appear at the meeting to answer questions about the future of the landfi ll. Citizens may submit questions in advance to allianceforhealthenvironment@ gmail.com. Members of the Landfi ll Subcommittee voted 5-1 with two abstentions in support of a motion to accept WIN Waste Innovation’s latest proposal and forward it to the Board of Selectmen. Cogliano, Selectman Corinne Riley, former Board of Health Member Joe Vinard, Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member Peter Delios and Saugus Fire Department Captain and Precinct 8 Town Meeting Member William E. Cross III all voted to support WIN Waste’s latest offer. Jackie Mercurio, a Saugus resident and local environmentalist who has been a vocal critic of the trash-to-energy plant, cast the lone opposition vote. Board of Health Chair William Heff ernan and Health Director John R. Fralick III abstained from the vote. The deal is contingent on whether MassDEP permits the company to expand an ash landfi ll that is expected to meet its capacity by the end of 2025. Any HCA would also require input and backing from town offi cials, particularly the Board of Health. WIN Waste Innovation’s proposed HCA, if approved by the town and the state, would also require WIN Waste Innovations to: • Reduce NOx and other emissions below current permit limits in place at time of agreement that are protective of public health and environment • Conduct optimization testing to determine levels of additional NOx reductions • Fund the installation of one stand-alone ambient NOx monitoring station in Saugus • Request the Massachusetts Department of Public Health to update its 2016 health study of Saugus residents as it relates to the plant’s operations and the landfi ll • Provide $26,000 per year to fund an independent third-party consultant to inspect the waste-to-energy facility and monofi l A major obstacle to any deal would be whether MassDEP would allow extending the life of the ash landfi ll. MassDEP Commissioner Martin Suuberg shared his concerns in a Nov. 16, 2021, letter to State Rep. Turco: “Any future proposals for expansion would require a modifi cation to the facility’s site assignment and approval from MassDEP and the Saugus Board of Health. As the landfi ll is located within an ACEC, an expansion of the landfi ll (including vertical expansion) would need to meet the site suitability criteria in the Regulations with respect to the site assignment. While an applicant is free to propose a site assignment modifi - cation, and MassDEP will review information submitted, based upon the information presently before MassDEP, the facility fails to meet the necessary site suitability criteria to allow for expansion within the ACEC and therefore would not receive a positive site suitability determination. Without a positive site suitability determination from MassDEP, a proposal to amend the facility’s site assignment to allow for vertical expansion would not advance to the Saugus Board of Health for consideration.” ~ HELP WANTED ~ Experienced Oil Truck Driver wanted.

Page 8 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Conservation Commission seeks avenue to issue fines By Adam Swift T he Conservation Commission is looking for an easier avenue to issue fi nes for violations of the Wetlands Protection Act. “If you look at the city for the wetlands protection, the Conservation Commission can impose fi nes on a daily basis of $300 for fi nes, but there is no process in place to do that,” said Commission Chair John Shue at Wednesday night’s meeting. “Sometimes I feel like we don’t have much in the way of teeth if we threaten to fi ne because it would take us weeks to fi gure out even how to do it.” Shue said he has sent out emails to several city officials to see if there is a way to give the commission more authority and ease to issue the fi nes. He said the commission should kick off the process by requesting to work with the City of Revere to come up with a process to issue the fi nes. “This is something we would not do very often,” said Shue. “I don’t know if it has ever been done.” Longtime Commission member Joe Lavalle said he could not remember a time when the commission had issued a wetlands protection fi ne. “So, because it would be rarely used, I wouldn’t recommend [the city] updating any computer systems or anything like that,” said Shue. “It would be so few and far between it should be able to be managed somewhat manually, I think.” The commission unanimously approved the request to work with the City of Revere to come up with a system for the commission to issue the fi nes. “One of my thoughts with this is that when we fi nalize the process, we would only ever approve fi nes if it came before the commission and the commission voted and approved to fi ne someone, much like we would do with an enforcement order,” said Shue. “Then, I’m sure there’s going to be some legal stuff we are going to have to comply with on the part of the city to be able to do this.” In other business, the Conservation Commission approved a notice of intent allowing Irving Oil on Lee Burbank Highway to complete improvements to its marine pier. 425r Broadway, Saugus Located adjacent to Kohls Plaza Route 1 South in Saugus at the intersection of Walnut St. We are on MBTA Bus Route 429 781-231-1111 We are a Skating Rink with Bowling Alleys, Arcade and two TV’s where the ball games are always on!

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 9 MBTA Launches Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Office to Address FTA Safety Management Inspection Report BOSTON – The MBTA this week launched the Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce to address the Federal Transit Administration’s (FTA) fi ndings contained in the Safety Management Inspection report. MBTA General Manager Steve Poftak also detailed the MBTA’s progress to date on addressing the report’s fi ndings, several of which the MBTA has already completed or is undertaking now. The MBTA announced Katie Choe, an over-20-year veteran of construction management and safety oversight, will focus solely on launching the Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce, which will operate outside of the T’s current organizational structure and implement actions to address the report’s fi ndings. The Offi ce will also report publicly every month on the T’s progress toward implementing the FTA’s directives. “The MBTA’s number one priority remains safety for both our riders and our employees. We are grateful to the FTA for their recommendations as we build on numerous actions and initiatives already in place across the organization to strengthen our safety management,” said General Manager Poftak. “Under the leadership of Katie Choe, I am confi dent that through the Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce, the MBTA will be better positioned to address the challenges it has faced and implement changes to the organization and system to provide a safer and more reliable T.” The FTA’s August 31 SMI report found four categories for the MBTA to improve upon. They included: • Managing the impact of operations, maintenance, and capital projects requirements on the available workforce; • Prioritization of Safety Management Information; • Eff ectiveness of Safety Communication; and • Operating conditions and policies, procedures, and training. To address these areas, the FTA ordered the MBTA to carry out 53 total actions. Today, the MBTA has either implemented or began the process of implementing half of those including: • Safety has facilitated multiple new safety risk management workshops over the past two months in coordination with management and subject matter experts from outside departments. The workshops have allowed for proactive hazard identifi cation and mitigation in areas including hiring, training & certifi cation, and fi eld-based exercises working with Operations, Maintenance, Training, and Human Resources. • The Safety Department has also expanded its safety meeting framework to include performance-focused safety data reviews with senior managers and executives, and will continue to use this meeting framework for review and discussion of data-driven safety analyses and risk management. • Radio dead spots have been confi rmed with frontline staff , and a regular reporting and confi rmation has been established with the majority of spots resolved. The MBTA will begin working on the additional actions immediately and will continue to seek FTA approval as it progresses through the directives. Building on the MBTA’s safety management plan as well as initiatives and projects in place, the MBTA has established the Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce led by Katie Choe, reporting directly to the General Manager to implement all of the FTA’s recommended actions. The Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce will focus on assessing, recruiting, and hiring as part of workforce management, collecting and analyzing safety data, instilling safety culture across the organization, and improving operating practices. Progress on these initiatives will be reported monthly to the MBTA Board of Directors. “The Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Offi ce will help support the MBTA’s over-6,000 employees, from track walkers to inspectors to operators and motorpersons by giving them the tools they need to succeed, including training, documentation, and support systems as we continue to implement the recommended actions presented in the FTA’s report,” said MBTA Director of Quality, Compliance, and Oversight Katie Choe. “I have seen fi rst-hand, through countless New England winters, events like championship parades and in their everyday work, the perseverance, eff ort, and focus of the MBTA workforce and I am confi dent that they will rise to the occasion again.” Katie Choe has currently served as the MBTA’s Chief of Capital Delivery since January 2020, where she has led and delivered on many major infrastructure projects that support and transform the entirety of MBTA’s subway, Commuter Rail, and bus systems through her successful leadership and collaboration with and across multiple MBTA departments on the same project. She has served in a number of transportation construction roles in the public sector for over 20 years. Prior to joining the MBTA, Katie worked as Chief Engineer and Director of Construction Management at the City of Boston Public Works Department where she oversaw a range of sectors including construction management, asset management, utility coordination, and resiliency initiatives. At Boston Public Works, Choe led the development of the award-winning Public Works Climate Resilient Design Standards, the StreetCaster equity-based infrastructure investment strategy, and was responsible for an annual $40 million construction program. She began her career in various roles at Massport, including as a construction project manager, Sustainability Program Manager, and Assistant Director of Capital Programs, overseeing the development of the award-winning Sustainable Design Standards and Guidelines and responsible for the development and implementation of Massport’s fi ve-year, $1 billion capital plan. She earned her Bachelor of Science in Civil EngineerAs seen on: ing and Master of Science in Civil and Environmental Engineering through the Construction Management Program from the Massachusetts Institute of Technology. She is an active member of Construction Management Association of America (CMAA) and WTS, serves on the CMAA Board of Governors, and served as Chair of the Construction Management Certifi - cation Institute Board of Governors. This year, she was honored as the WTS-Boston 2022 Woman of the Year. In addition, the MBTA has taken several other immediate steps to address these actions, including engagement SAFETY | SEE Page 12 PUBLIC AUCTION FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 23RD AT 1:00 PM MORTGAGEE’S SALE OF REAL ESTATE  MALDEN  15 ROOM / 6 BEDROOM TWO FAMILY DUPLEX STYLE HOME Malden, MA To Be Sold On The Premises FEATURES:  Two Family Duplex Style Home   Total of (15) Rooms w/ (6) Bedrooms & (2) Bathrooms   ±4,317 S/F of Area  Gas FWA Heat  Basement   Clapboard Siding           Zoned: Residential A              Attorney Keith K.

Page 10 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Patriots have sights set on tourney bid in 2022 Head to Peabody for big road test, kickoff 7 pm By Greg Phipps T he sting of not receiving a state tournament berth despite losing just two games in 2021 still appears to resonate with the Revere High School football team. And the Patriots seem determined to make sure they are not overlooked again this fall. Last season, Revere, despite owning a 6-2 record at the time, did not get into the tournament due, in part, to the state's condensed postseason format and an apparent strength of opposition issue. Head coach Lou Cicatelli admitted that this Friday's season opener at Peabody (scheduled 7 p.m. kickoff ) could play a huge role in determining playoff qualifi cation. The Patriots fi nished 8-2 in 2021. Cicatelli told the press recently that games like the Peabody contest are big because of the ratings points they can generate by earning a victory. Otherwise, he said, because of the system, the Patriots could be on the outside looking in once again even if they fi nish 8-2 or 7-3. Cicatelli said the Patriots are confi dent they can pull off the win at Peabody, which is always a tough place to play. In recent years, Revere has emerged victorious there and has had some success against the Tanners. Though Peabody defeated the Patriots, 28-7, in last year's season opener at Harry Della Russo Stadium. Having prepared well in the preseason by participating in a number of scrimmages, including one against powerhouse Everett, Revere is hoping to lead off 2022 with a road win against KAMAL MAJID WILLIAM ROSALES CHRIS CASSIDY JUEIZ ACEVEDO HAMZA GORDINAS the Tanners, who were responsible for handing the Patriots one of their two defeats last year. The other 2021 loss was to Everett by a 36-11 score. Cicatelli cited players Max Doucette, who was identifi ed as a preseason Player to Watch by the Boston Herald, Chris Cassidy, Danny Hou, Domenic Boudreau, Sami Elasri, Jason Shosho, Kamal Maijid and quarterback Carlos Rizo for their strong preseason performances. After the season opener at JOSUE MAYORGA Peabody, the Patriots return home to face Plymouth South next Friday, Sept. 16, at 6 p.m. and Medford on Thursday, Sept. 22, also at 6 p.m. Meet the 2022 RHS Patriots Football Team (Advocate photos)

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 11 SCHOOL | FROM Page 8 For 37 years, Bronfman Fellows have built a pluralistic community through a transformative, intellectual and deeply personal journey in which they have the opportunity to see the world through a lens broader than their own. Fellows expand their perspectives as they build community with those representing different backgrounds, worldviews and approaches to Jewish life and practice. Inspired by a stellar faculty of Rabbis and educators, Fellows explore a wide range of Jewish texts, from classic religious works to contemporary poetry and philosophy, using these sources to spark conversations, engage with stimulating existential questions and achieve a deeper understanding of themselves and one another. In addition to learning with stellar educators, Fellows also have the unique opportunity to engage with leading intellectuals, artists, and religious and cultural leaders. Past speakers have included journalist Matti Friedman, author Nicole Krauss, musician and Yiddish scholar Anthony Russell and Torah scholar Dr. Avivah Zornberg. Fellows also interact with a group of Israeli peers who were chosen through a parallel selection process by the Israeli branch of the Fellowship, Amitei Bronfman. Additionally, they have the opportunity to participate in the Fellowship’s arts tracks: workshops in areas including poetry, dance, drama, visual narrative and music, taught by leading innovators in the fi eld of Jewish art. Upon returning home from the summer in Israel, Fellows explore major themes in North American Jewish life and embark on projects to bridge the ideas and questions from their Bronfman summer with their daily lives and home communities. “My father, Edgar M. Bronfman, placed enormous faith in young people’s ability to see the world not just as it is, but as it ought to be,” said The Samuel Bronfman Foundation President Adam R. Bronfman. “He believed that young people energized by their Judaism were best equipped to both shape a Jewish ‘Renaissance’ and improve the world.” “The Fellowship is an opportunity for dynamic personal and intellectual growth in a group of carefully chosen peers,” said Executive Director Becky Voorwinde. “We seek to increase communication between young people across the Jewish spectrum including fostering bonds between Jews in North America and Israel. This program serves as a creative force that has inspired some of our best Jewish young adults to become leaders in their communities.” Alumni of The Bronfman Fellowship are leaders in their community, playing key roles in fi elds such as social justice, academia, law and the arts. There are now nearly 1,400 Bronfman Fellowship alumni across North America and Israel. Among them are eight Rhodes Scholars, four former Supreme Court clerks, 20 Fulbright Scholars, 36 Wexner Fellows and 29 Dorot Fellows. Leaders of note among Fellowship alumni include Daniel Handler, a.k.a. Lemony Snicket, author of the best-selling Series of Unfortunate Events children’s books; Jonathan Safran Foer, author of “Everything Is Illuminated”; and Rabbi Rachel Nussbaum, Rabbi and co-founder of a pluralistic Jewish community, the Kavana Cooperative, in Seattle. Others include Judy Batalion, author of “The Light of Days”; Anne Dreazen, Foreign Affairs Specialist in the Department of Defense; Itamar Moses, Tony award-winner for “The Band’s Visit”; and Rabbi Deborah Sacks Mintz, Community Singing Consultant of Hadar’s Rising Song Institute. Alumni also include entrepreneurial Jewish leaders who have founded organizations like Keshet, Sefaria and YidLife Crisis, and serve in central leadership roles at major organizations like the Shalom Hartman Institute of North America, the Jewish Women’s Archive, Central Synagogue, Hillel International and the Foundation for Jewish Camp, to name a few. Our Israeli alumni have also ascended to positions of infl uence in government, civil groups, the private sector and cultural institutions. Amitei Bronfman alumni include attorneys at the Justice Department, noted journalists, successful filmmakers (including a Tribeca Film Festival winner), political advisers to Members of Knesset, members of elite IDF units and university lecturers. About The Bronfman Fellowship The Bronfman Fellowship, the fl agship program for outstanding young Jews, taps 26 North American teenagers at a formative point in their lives, the year before college, when an intense, immersive experience will have the most impact. The Fellowship is an opportunity unlike any other: a space where young people who want to see the world through a lens broader than their own can explore issues with depth, candor and joy while forming friendships to last a lifetime. Fellows wrestle with major issues in contemporary Jewish life, meet some of today’s most infl uential fi gures and expand their perspectives as they build community with those representing diff erent backgrounds, worldviews and approaches to Jewish life and practice. The year begins with an immersive summer study program that typically takes place in Israel and includes an encounter with a parallel cadre of outstanding Israeli teenagers. Programming continues throughout Fellows’ senior year of high school with a series of lively in-person and virtual seminars, gatherings and projects. Upon graduating high school, the Fellows join an alumni community that has become a model for lifelong engagement, as Bronfman alumni continue to exchange ideas and inspire one another to contribute their talents, vision and creativity to the Jewish community and the world. The Fellowship, now in its 37th year, was founded in 1987 by Edgar M. Bronfman, z”l, and refl ects his early and impassioned belief that for the Jewish people to thrive, Israeli and American Jews from a variety of backgrounds must be engaged in open and creative discourse with one another. The alumni embody his vision that young people who are enriched and energized by their Judaism are poised to contribute not only to Jewish life, but to improving the world. For more information about The Bronfman Fellowship, including how to apply, please visit www.bronfman.org. Our Mission: The Bronfman Fellowship nurtures intellectually curious young Jews from Israel and North America to build a more dynamic and pluralistic future. Our Vision: We envision a future led by people who see the world through a lens broader than their own and who value Jewish learning as an instrument for discovery, creativity, and change. What We Do: We thoughtfully select promising Jewish people with diverse backgrounds and identities who demonstrate the ability to be cultural creators, deep thinkers, moral voices and community builders. By exploring the plurality of Jewish life, and by creating a rich tapestry of Jewish ideas, we build a community rooted in meaningful relationships and an expanded sense of possibility.

The renewed relationship builds on a successful four-year partnership which has brought funding into local markets and seeded Feeding America’s Ending Hunger program. This year’s funding is primarily categorized as equitable access grants, which aim to increase access to nutritious food among households with individuals who are Black, Indigenous, and People of Color (BIPOC) residing in communities experiencing high food insecurity rates. “For millions of people in America, a daily meal isn't a choice between diff erent dishes.

The MBTA is targeting the end of the week to issue RFQs directly related to the scope of the Offi ce. With a goal of the T’s workforce fully embracing a safety-fi rst culture and adopting its practices for sustained improvement, the T’s unions and MBTA leadership, including the General Manager, began meeting at the end of last week in order to engage these groups on workforce safety communications and meetings on safety themes and issues. Also, based on the FTA’s concerns regarding the MBTA’s ability to balance larger capital projects and day-to-day maintenance, MassDOT will lead an engagement with a consultant to investigate the potential benefi ts of a multi-modal large construction unit apart from the MBTA and other agencies of MassDOT that would develop, design, construct, and deliver large capital assets to the operating agencies, relieving them from the burden of managing large capital projects while also trying to maintain day-to-day maintenance. The MBTA has already employed this type of project management with the Green Line Extension and South Coast Rail projects, as they are separate projects reporting directly to the General Manager, but this new engagement will investigate the opportunities to expand this model. Today, Governor Charlie Baker is fi ling a supplemental budget that includes $200 million for the MBTA to provide additional resources towards addressing the FTA’s safety directives and ensuring a safe, reliable transit network for its riders. The supplemental budget also includes $10 million for MassDOT, in collaboration with the MBTA, to develop a training academy to create a talent pipeline to address the staffi ng challenges at the MBTA. Over the last several months, the MBTA has continued to make progress on the FTA’s initial safety concerns through safety plans to address track conditions and maintenance, updated safety trainings and directives, and has addressed staffing shortages. The MBTA has met all the FTA’s deadlines and requirements to date in response to the four special directives issued.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 13 VOTE | FROM Page 1 both ran unopposed in their respective districts in the Democratic primary and will go unchallenged on the ballot in the general election, as well. Total voter turnout in Revere was just under 15 percent, with 4,509 of the city’s 30,265 registered voters casting ballots on Tuesday. Paul Fahey, in his fi rst citywide election as Election Commissioner, said there were some issues related to voters finding polling locations due to the recent redistricting and reprecincting, and that his offi ce would address any issues moving forward to the general election in November. “This was the fi rst citywide election since the redistricting and reprecincting, so we had 21 precincts before and we are down to 19,” said Fahey. “We did see some changes in voting locations, primarily from Covid. Most of them stayed the same, but we did have to make some changes, so that caused some confusion.” Fahey noted that postcards were sent out to all households, including registered voters, informing them of their polling locations, and he said the voter outreach would continue through to the general election. Other than some confusion over the polling locations, Fahey said, the day went well, and he praised the work done by the Board of Election Commissioners and the poll workers. The toughest local contest on the ballot was the Democratic race for Suffolk County District Attorney between current DA Kevin Hayden and Boston City Councilor Ricardo Arroyo. Hayden was the projected winner of the race, and in Revere, he easily topped Arroyo, 1,749 to 1,190. Other Democratic races where Revere fell in line with the statewide winners included auditor, attorney general and secretary of state. Locally, Andrea Campbell outpaced Shannon Liss-Riordan in the AG’s race, 1,469 to 1,172. Longtime Secretary of State William Galvin outpolled Tanisha Sullivan, 2,381 to 750, and Diana DiZoglio beat Christopher Dempsey, 1,653 to 1,228. Steven Tompkins outpaced Sandy Zamor Calixte in the Democratic Suffolk County Sheriff race. State Senator Lydia Edwards and Congresswoman Katherine Clark ran unopposed in the Democratic primary. Edwards faces no competition in November, while Clark will face Republican nominee Caroline Colarusso, who ran unopposed in the Republican primary. On the Republican side, James McMahon ran unopposed for Attorney General, Rayla Campbell for Secretary of State and Anthony Amore for Auditor.

How the Inflation Reduction Act Will Lower Your Drug Costs Dear Savvy Senior, What kind of changes can Medicare benefi ciaries expect to see in the Infl ation Reduction Act that was recently signed into law? I’m enrolled in original Medicare and have a Part D prescription drug plan but spent more than $6,000 out-of-pocket last year on medications alone. ESTATE TAX PORTABILITY E state tax portability was introduced into law on December 17, 2010 as part of The Tax Relief, Unemployment Insurance Reauthorization and Job Creation Act. Massachusetts has not adopted portability. Encourage your elected offi cials to pass legislation authorizing it at the state level. Portability allows the federal unused exemption amount for one spouse to be passed to the surviving spouse. A Federal estate tax return would have to be filed even though no federal estate tax is due. If one spouse dies and leaves $5million to his or her spouse, there is an unlimited marital deduction so no federal or Massachusetts estate tax will be paid. If a federal estate tax return is fi led within 5 years from the time of death, you can preserve the DSUE (Deceased Spouse Unused Exemption) for the surviving spouse. The due date for fi ling an estate tax return to avoid any late fi ling or late payment penalties if a tax is actually owed is 9 months from the date of death. Congress has given taxpayers more time to fi le a federal estate tax return in order to preserve the portability election. Revenue Procedure 2022-34 was promulgated this year which extended the due date from 2 years to 5 years. This fi ve year period applies in the situation where an estate tax return would not otherwise be required to be fi led for the decedent’s estate. If the husband were to die in 2022 leaving $5million to his wife, there would be no estate tax to be paid on that $5million. If his wife had Overpaying Paul Dear Paul, The climate, tax and health $10million in her own name she would then end up with a $15million estate. If the wife were to also die in 2022 there still would be no federal estate tax, even though her estate would have been valued at $15million at the time of her death. The 2022 federal estate tax exemption is $12.6million. Therefore, the husband’s DSUE of $12.06million is added to the wife’s $12.06 federal estate tax exemption resulting in a total federal exemption for the wife of $24.12million. Consequently, none of her $15million estate would be subject to federal estate tax. It is therefore important to know when to fi le a federal estate tax return when the fi rst spouse dies. The federal exemption is slated to be reduced to $6.2million beginning on January 1, 2026, unless congress extends the higher exemption amounts. Preserving a $12.06 portability election now might come in very handy several years down the road when a surviving spouse dies at a time when the federal estate tax exemption is much lower. You would want to lock in the higher federal estate tax exemption now. Joseph D. Cataldo is an Estate Planning/Elder Law Attorney, Certifi ed Public Accountant, Certifi ed Financial Planner, AICPA Personal Financial Specialist and holds a Master’s Degree in Taxation. care bill known as the Infl ation Reduction Act that was passed by Congress and signed into law by President Biden last month includes signifi cant improvements to the Medicare program that will kick-in over the next few years. These changes will lower prescription drug prices for millions of seniors by allowing the government to negotiate drug prices for the fi rst time and capping seniors’ out-of-pocket drug costs at $2,000 annually. Some other popular changes will include free vaccinations, lower insulin costs and expanded subsidies for lower income seniors. Here is a breakdown of the changes to expect in Medicare and when they will roll out. 2023: Starting this January, all vaccines covered under Medicare Part D, including the shingles vaccine, will be free to benefi ciaries. And the skyrocketing cost of insulin will be capped at $35 per month. This will be a signifi cant saving for the more than 3 million Medicare enrollees who currently use insulin to control their diabetes. Also starting next year, drug makers will be penalized in the form of “rebates” that they would be forced to pay to the government if they impose price increases that exceed general infl ation. 2024: Cost sharing for catastrophic coverage in Part D will be eliminated. Under the current Part D benefit, once your out-of-pocket costs reach $7,050 in 2022, you enter “catastrophic” coverage but are still responsible for 5 percent of your prescription drug costs, with no limit. But in 2024, people with Part D coverage will no longer be responsible for any out-of-pocket drug costs once they enter catastrophic coverage. This is signifi - cant for seniors who use expensive medications for conditions like cancer or multiple sclerosis. Also starting in 2024 through 2029, Part D premiums will not be allowed to grow faster than 6 percent per year. And for lower income Medicare benefi ciaries, eligibility for the Part D Low Income Subsidy (also known as Extra Help) will be expanded to 150 percent of the federal poverty level, from today’s limit of 135 percent. This change will mean about 500,000 more seniors will qualify for fi nancial assistance to help pay some or all of their prescription drug premiums and deductibles. 2025: One of the biggest cost reduction measures for Medicare beneficiaries will begin in 2025 when out-of-pocket spending on Part D prescription drugs will be capped at $2,000 per year. This will be a major savings for the more than 1.5 million benefi ciaries who currently spend more than $2,000 outof-pocket each year. 2026: When Medicare’s Part D program was enacted in 2003, negotiating lower drug prices was forbidden. But because of the Infl ation Reduction Act, starting in 2026 Medicare will be empowered to begin negotiating prices with drug companies for 10 of the most expensive drugs covered under Part D. In 2027 and 2028, 15 drugs would be eligible for negotiations and in 2029 and subsequent years, 20 drugs would be chosen. And, in addition to all the Medicare improvements, the Infl ation Reduction Act also extends the Aff ordable Care Act (Obamacare) premium subsidies for three years that have helped millions of Americans gain coverage before they’re eligible for Medicare.

This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local representatives’ roll call attendance records for the 2022 session. The House held 165 roll calls in 2022. Beacon Hill Roll Call tabulates the number of roll calls on which each representative was present and voting, and then calculates that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. The vast majority of the 153 representatives are not in the House chamber during a session because of the COVID-19 pandemic. Most are watching the session from their Statehouse offi ce, home or business and voting remotely. Here’s how the remote voting WASTE REMOVAL & BUILDING MAINTENANCE • Landscaping, Lawn Care, Mulching • Yard Waste & Rubbish Removal • Interior & Exterior Demolition (Old Decks, Fences, Pools, Sheds, etc.) • Appliance and Metal Pick-up • Construction and Estate Cleanouts • Pick-up Truck Load of Trash starting at $169 • Carpentry LICENSED & INSURED Call for FREE ESTIMATES!                        KITCHEN CABINETS To Look Like New 508-840-0501 FURNITURE STRIP & FINISH system works: Eight appointed monitors are required to be present in the House chamber and are each given the task of recording the votes of approximately 20 members who are watching the session remotely from their homes or business offi ces. Each monitor has their 20 members on a conference call and fi lls out a form indicating how each member voted. The sheets are given to the court offi cers who then give them to the House Clerk who verifi es that the correct totals have been recorded on the sheet and that the sheet is signed by the monitor. The assistant clerk records the yeas and nays in the roll call computer, which activates the green (voted “Yes”) or red (voted “No”) lights on the electronic roll call board. Members participating remotely then have the opportunity to see on the broadcast how they are recorded so that they can verify that their vote is recorded accurately. The tally is then displayed on the roll call board and the presiding offi cer announces the totals and the result of the vote. If a member wants to speak on an issue under consideration, they leave the conference call temporarily. Using a different telephone, they call into a line that patches them into the debate. Their voice is then heard in the House chamber and by those watching the broadcast online. In the House, 94.1 percent (144 representatives out of 153) did not miss any roll calls and have 100 percent roll call attendance records while 5.9 percent (nine representatives out of 153) have missed one or more roll calls. The representative who missed the most roll calls is Rep. David LeBoeuf (D-Worcester) who missed 12 roll calls (92.7 percent attendance record). Rounding out the nine representatives who have missed roll calls are Reps. Joan Meschino (D-Hull) who missed six roll calls (96.3 percent attendance record); Nika Elugardo (D-Jamaica Plain), Michael Moran (D-Brighton) and Alice Peisch (D-Wellesley) who each missed four roll calls (97.5 percent attendance record); Colleen Garry (D-Dracut) who missed three roll calls (98.1 percent attendance record); and Reps. Patrick Kearney (D-Scituate), Tami Gouveia (D-Acton) and John Rogers (D-Norwood) who each missed one roll call (99.3 percent attendance record). Beacon Hill Roll Call contacted these nine legislators and asked each one for a comment on his or her attendance record. Only two responded: Reps. Peisch and Meschino. Rep. Peisch: “I was traveling for a significant family event that had been scheduled for some time. Had I been able to vote, I would have voted in the affirmative. At the time, I submitted a statement to the House Clerk for publication in the journal indicating my absence and how I would have voted.” Rep. Meschino: “I missed one day of formal session and roll call votes while traveling for a special family celebration.” Reps. LeBoeuf, Elguardo, Garry, Kearney, Gouveia, John Rogers and Michael Moran did not respond to repeated requests for a comment.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, SEPTEMBER 9, 2022 Page 15 FOOD | FROM Page 12 It’s often an impossible choice between food and other critical needs,” said Bruce Van Saun, Chairman and CEO, Citizens Financial Group. “Our partnership with Feeding America helps to tackle the root causes of hunger and aims to increase the scale and impact of local food banks, particularly now, as our communities continue grappling with economic instability.” In 2021, through the Citizens Helping Citizens Fight Hunger initiative, the bank helped provide 16.3 million meals* via its partnership with Feeding America and other local hunger relief organizations. Citizens colleagues volunteered nearly 90,000 hours to help combat hunger in communities across the bank’s enterprise. In Greater Boston, Citizens has contributed a total of $200,000 to support The Greater Boston Food Bank (GBFB). GBFB will use the $200,000 grant for its transportation fleet, covering the lease of two co-branded, refrigerated trucks for a period of 12 months. “Citizens has been supporting our mission to end hunger here in Eastern Massachusetts for over two decades,” said Catherine D’Amato, GBFB president and CEO. “They come on the road with us every day by supporting our transportation team, and their generosity is needed now more than ever as more and more families need our help due to the lingering FOOD | SEE Page 18 - LEGAL NOTICE -                                       D          To all interested persons: A Petition for                  of   and    of   requesting that the Court enter a formal Decree and Order and for such other relief as requested in the Petition.

Back to school shopping is well underway and soon enough families across the state will be thinking about rising home heating costs. They need this money more than ever.” “In 1986, Citizens for Limited Taxation (CLT) put forth this ballot question with the expectation that Massachusetts taxpayers would one day need this law,” said Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation. “Any required credit should not be delayed as a refund next year, as the original intent when CLT drafted it was to get the money back to the taxpayers expeditiously.

It is a way to kill a proposal without holding a vote on the bill itself. Here are some of the bills that were sent off to a study committee. FEES FOR PAYING AUTO PREMIUMS IN INSTALLMENTS (H 1127) – Would prohibit auto insurance companies from charging a fee for processing an electronic payment by a customer without fi rst giving written notifi cation. “I fi led this legislation on behalf of a constituent who was charged a processing fee for paying his automobile insurance bill electronically but was never notifi ed by the insurer that such a fee existed,” said sponsor Rep. Brad Jones (R-North Reading). “[The bill] will add an extra layer of consumer protection and promote greater transparency by requiring insurance providers to notify consumers in writing if they charge a fee for processing an electronic payment. I’m disappointed this bill was placed in a study order, but I plan to re-fi le it for the upcoming session so consumers will be able to make a more informed decision on how they choose to pay their bills.” PROHIBIT EXPIRED INSPECTION STICKER FROM BEING A SURCHARGEABLE OFFENSE (H 1128) – Would prohibit driving with an expired inspection sticker from being counted as a surchargeable off ense. Under Bay State law, surchargeable off enses can lead to temporary higher insurance premiums. In additional the state will immediately suspend or revoke a learner’s permit or driver’s license for 60 days if a driver has accumulated seven surchargeable off enses or moving violations within a 3-year period. A driver with three surchargeable off enses within a 2-year period will have their license or learner’s permit revoked in 90 days unless he or she completes a mandatory Massachusetts Driver Retraining Program before the revocation takes effect. “Auto insurance premiums should refl ect an individual’s actual driving experience and safe vehicle operating habits and should not be adversely impacted by simple errors such as failing to get an inspection sticker on time,” said sponsor Rep. Brad Jones. “Operating without a valid inspection sticker should not be treated on the same level as speeding or failure to stop, which represent much more serious and potentially dangerous moving violations. Driving with an expired sticker is a relatively minor off ense and should be treated as such.” Jones has refi led the bill for consideration in the 2023-2024 session.

Hannah Kane (R-Shrewsbury). “It will not only benefi t those who complete the course and receive the discount, but in educating drivers, make every resident of the commonwealth safer. I am disappointed this bill has been sent to study and will plan to refi le it next session.” RAISE THRESHOLD FROM $1,000 TO $2,500 (H 1117) – Under current law, in order for an accident to trigger a surcharge, there must be at least $1,000 worth of damage. This bill would raise the minimum to $2,500. “This exemption is outdated at $1,000,” said sponsor Rep. Steve Howitt (R-Seekonk) who plans to refi le the bill next year. “Cars are now costing tens of thousands of dollars [and] no longer have bumpers, but integrated facias that are part of the car’s body. A scratch can cost well over $1,000 to repair and paint. Paint body shop supplies and replacement automotive parts have outpaced inflation. By raising the points threshold to $2,500, it better conforms to these costs and does not cause additional financial burdens to our Massachusetts drivers with additional insurance premiums. This legislation is fair not only to the insurance industry, but to our consumers as well.” REBATES (H 1033) – Would allow auto insurance companies to give rebates to any policy holder who is considered a safe driver under state regulations and who was not involved in any surchargeable incidents during the period the policy was in eff ect. “I believe people should be rewarded for safe driving,” said sponsor Rep. Bruce Ayers (D-Quincy). “This is a bill I plan on re-fi ling next legislative session.” QUOTABLE QUOTES “The industry has grown rapidly since the voters legalized recreational cannabis in 2016, topping $3 billion in sales this past spring. While the law was intended to create new economic opportunities for diverse communities and those previously harmed by harsh drug laws, this promise has not been fully achieved, leaving many aspiring equity entrepreneurs with a very challenging pathway to achieve the success that larger corporate interests have enjoyed.” ---Former State Treasurer Shannon O’Brien on her appointment as chairperson of the Cannabis Control Commission. “It is shameful for the fi rst public transportation system in our country to have reached this entirely preventable point, where deep service cuts and wholesale shutdowns of subway lines are deemed necessary to get the T back on track. It is unacceptable that the MBTA has forced riders to carry the burden of the Baker administration’s failures.” ---U.S. Sens. Ed Markey and Liz Warren in a joint statement. “Obviously the most shocking being our instant ticket numbers being down $22.2 million. And that is a trend that we have seen both nationwide and into this current month of August as well that we’ll be discussing at the next commission meeting, as well as our Keno sales being down $5.5 million which is also a trend nationwide. Plus, we did happen to have a very warm August which, generally speaking, keeps people outside and less in restaurants and liquor establishments. So that’s contributing to somewhat of that decrease.” --- Interim Lottery Executive Director Mark William Bracken. 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 29-September 2, the House met for a total of 45 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 26 minutes. Mon. Aug. 29 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:06 a.m. Senate 11:15 a.m. to 11:20 a.m. Tues. Aug. 30 No House session No Senate session Wed. Aug. 31 No House session No Senate session Thurs.
