Michelle DeMauro, 48, of Revere, was indicted on Monday by a Suffolk County Grand Jury on Larceny Over $1,200 by Single Scheme (two counts), Tax Evasion, Failure to Collect or Pay Tax, Keep Records or Supply Information (one count), and Obtaining a Signature Under False Pretenses (two counts). She will be arraigned in Suffolk Superior Court on October 16. The AG’s Office alleges that between March 2016 and April 2019, DeMauro used her position as president of the organization to embezzle more than $42,000 in charitable funds that she used for personal expenses, including home improvement projects, electronics, concert tickets, cash withdrawals and gift cards. The AG’s Office also alleges that DeMauro made some personal purchases using the charity’s taxexempt status to avoid paying sales tax to the state. The Revere League for Special Needs is an organization that aims to “promote the general welfare of children and adults with special needs in RPS students MCAS results fall short of meeting State expectations By Alexis Mikulski T he Massachusetts Comprehensive Assessment System, also known as MCAS, released the 2019 test results for Revere public school students’ grades three through 10, this week. Every year, public school students across Massachusetts are required to complete the mandatory test in areas of Reading, English Language Arts, Writing, Mathematics and Science. All the tests issued are “standard base” and measure specific skills designed for each grade or subject by the state of Massachusetts. For students in grade 10, it is necessary to pass the MCAS in order to graduate from high school. The tests are normally completed between March and April, with individual test results being sent home to parents and students in the fall. According to the official Massachusetts Education website, each subject area has four different achievement levels. They are “exceeding expectations, meeting expectations, partially meeting expectations and not meeting expectations.” Students who score between 530–560 exceed expectations; students between 500–529 meet expectations; students between 470–499 partially meet expectations; and students who fall between 440– 469 do not meet expectations. For the 2019 school year, these are the average MCAS test results for Revere Public School Students: the home, church, school, or community.” All of the League are volunteers who donate their time to hold events and activities for members of the organization and do not receive any compensation for their work. Reportedly, the League’s other board members fully cooperated and assisted with the AG’s investigation. This matter is being prosecuted by Assistant Attorney General Gretchen Brodigan of AG Healey’s White Collar and Public Integrity Division and Sallyann Nelligan, Chief of the AG’s Financial Investigations Division. The Massachusetts State Police provided valuable assistance to this investigation.

Grade six achieved very similar scores, with an average of 497 in English Language Arts and 494.4 in Mathematics. Grade seven received an average score of 495.6 in English Language Arts and 493.3 in Mathematics, while grade eight received an average score of 495.9 in English Language Arts, 495.8 in Mathematics and 493.3 in Science. Finally, for grade ten, the only grade in high school required to take the test, students received an average score of 499.1 in English Language Arts and 499.3 in Mathematics. The MCAS has been distributed annually for the past 26-years. It was developed by the Commonwealth of Massachusetts as a response to the Education Reform Act of 1993, which called for dramatic changes in public education over the course of seven years. Many students find themselves anxious over this test, with parents wondering how to best prepare their children. Carol Tye, a former Superintendent and English teacher and current member of the Revere School Committee, says there are steps to take at home to alleviate this worry. “Get a good night’s sleep the night before, have a good breakfast and try and stay as calm as possible,” she said. “We say if you do your work all year long and do the best you can throughout the school year, you’ll be absolutely fine.” For a more in-depth look at the Revere Public School’s MCAS results, or for questions about the test, you can visit www.doe.mass.edu. A graph depicts the MCAS results for grade three. ~ OP-ED ~ Our children are crying out for help; why don’t we hear them? By Anthony D’Ambrosio W hile it should be common sense that good mental health is critical to a child’s success in school and life, we, as a community, need to do better for our children. Let me be clear and speak plainly, America’s youth, and Revere’s youth, are in the midst of a mental health crisis. The explosion of snapchat, twitter, and Facebook have dramatically changed the way our children are growing up today. They can no longer come home after school and shut out the negative influences of the day. Their smart phones and laptops ensure that they are wired in 24/7. The resulting data is startling. According to research done by the US Department of Health and Human Services, major depression among teenagers has surged 69 percent over the past 10 years; one out of every five girls experiences major depression. The suicide rate among 18 year olds has increased by a whopping 56 percent since 2008. The situation is even worse for younger children. Pediatric hospitals have determined that admissions of children ages five to 17 for suicidal ideation have more than doubled over the past decade. Here in Revere the statistics are similar. And anecdotally, we all know friends and family who suffer from depression and other related illnesses. While I understand that childhood depression and related mental health issues are complex, I don’t understand why we aren’t all discussing this awful crisis more during this political season. Yes, tax rates, congestion, and development are all important issues, but isn’t the health and well-being of our children just as important? Isn’t the health of a community inextricably linked to the health and treatment of its children? As a united City, Revere needs to do better. While it is difficult to determine the exact causes behind such spiking numbers, social media bullying, spotty mental health screening, and inadequate medical access are surely contributing factors. Regardless, more can be done to help our youth. Our schools provide a unique opportunity to identify and treat mental health conditions by serving students where they already are and at an age when the biggest difference can be made. Well trained school personnel play an essential role in identifying the early warning signs of emerging mental health conditions and in linking students and families with effective services and supports. Our caring and committed teachers are at the forefront of this crisis. We must support them in their efforts to combat mental health issues. After understanding the crucial position that Revere Public Schools have in this crisis, we need to reexamine and redouble our efforts at assisting children. I believe in the creation of a system-wide, true “ombudsman’s program” to support children struggling with mental health issues. The new program will: • Re-prioritize our resources and begin by increasing awareness of this difficult issue. Many of our students are afraid to seek help because they fear ridicule from their peers. We need to change the culture surrounding this issue in our schools. We must shatter the societal stigma that is too often attached to depression and other mental health issues. We are all God’s children with different strengths and abilities. Revere Public schools must take the lead in raising awareness on this issue; • Increase training of school faculty and staff on the early warning signs of mental health issues and how to connect our students to mental health professionals; and OP-ED | SEE PAGE 13

THE REVERE ADVOCATE–Friday, October 4 , 2019 Page 5 ~ POLITICAL ANNOUNCEMENT ~ D’Ambrosio announces bid for School Committee I t is with a great sense of humility and excitement that I declare my candidacy for the Revere School Committee. Election Day is Tuesday, November 5, 2019, and I am asking for your vote. Please consider me because of: My Deep Community Roots: My family spans three generations in the City of Revere. My grandfather, Antonio D’Ambrosio, immigrated to Revere in 1972 and started a successful landscaping business, Revere Gardens Company. My father, Attorney Gerry D’Ambrosio, was raised in the City and has operated a law office on Proctor Avenue since 1998. I was raised on Taft Street, played baseball on the old McMackin Field, and attended the Paul Revere School. I currently live at 33 Prospect Avenue. My Education: My family strongly believes in the transformative power of education and pushed me to study hard. With some good fortune and hard work, I was blessed with the opportunity to have attended some of the finest schools and univerAnthony D’Ambrosio School Committee Member candidate sities in the world. I graduated from Phillips Academy (Diploma), Yale University (B.A.), and the University of Cambridge, UK (Master’s). At Yale, I graduated near the top of my class and received several academic and leadership honors. While I have learned a great deal in my travels and studies of science, history, and math, I have also learned the importance of public service and the need to give back to one’s community. For this reason, I seek a position on the Revere School Committee. I wish to give back. I hope to contribute to a better Revere. My Relevant Work History: I have significant experience working with public school children and have taught on disability and mental health issues. As a Community Health Educator from 2015 to 2017, I worked directly with children and school administrators on developing new strategies to overcome the many psychological and physical challenges that children face today. Then, from 2016 to 2018, I served as the Coordinator (leader) of Dwight Hall, a 3,500-person non-profit organization that provided community-based services, ranging from early childhood education to youth homelessness relief. During those years, I worked “handson” to provide better social services to those in need. My Campaign Focuses: Creating improved access to resources for children with learning and physical disabilities is one of the cornerstones of my campaign.

Morabito is seeking reelection this fall and will face off against nine other opponents. In addition to City Council, he currently serves on six of the 10 council subcommittees, and is chairman of the Economic Development Subcommittee. Find out more about him below! Q: What is your hometown? A: Revere, Massachusetts. Q: What is your education background/experience? A: I received a Bachelor’s of Science in Business Management from Salem State. Q: What is the biggest issue the city is currently facing? A: Although we have one of the best beaches and livQ: How long have you been serving on City Council? A: Three terms. Q: What is your biggest accomplishment? A: There have many accomplishments achieved together on the City Council along with the Mayor. Our city has the highest bond rating a city can attain, and this shows we are making fiscally responsible decisions. My biggest accomplishment this year was an ordinance that can give a $1,000 additional tax break to Veterans while working towards an owner-occupied exemption. Q: Do you have a proposed solution for this? A: We need to strengthen coastal community resilience by continuing to reduce vulnerability. Every year flooding seems to get worse with every storm due to the rising sea levels. We have already received designation by the state as a Municipal Vulnerability Preparedness community. This makes us eligible to apply for MVP action grants to help us pursue strategies to combat climate change. Conducting a coastal resilience feasibility study in the Point of Pines and Riverside sections of Reing by the ocean can be nice, the biggest issue we face being a coastal community is the threat of coastal erosion. vere will be the first step of preparedness. Q: Why did you want to become a city councillor? A: I worked as a Manager for Johnnie’s Foodmaster supermarkets in Revere, which is now the location of the HarleyDavidson headquarters. While working there, I was able to talk to so many people in our community – many who engaged in local politics and encouraged me to run for office, because I had a passion for local, state and federal politics. I contemplated the idea to run for office but put it on the back burner for a while, after losing my mom unexpectedly at the age of 57. This put a lot into perspective for me and made me come to terms with how Steven Morabito short life is, and to not put anything you’re passionate about on the back burner. My outlook was, “Why not put myself in a position where I can influence change?” Therefore, I ran for office over and over. I never gave up and eventually persevered and got elected. Q: Why do you think voter participation is so essential in local elections? A: Voting is a right that generations of Americans have struggled to win. It’s a civic engagement some countries still lack.

(Photo Courtesy of the Revere Police Department) OP-ED | FROM PAGE 4 • Increase our internal services and supports so that our community schools provide an effective level of school-based mental health services. Such services, offered on the spot and over time, are the most effective method of helping our children and giving them a real opportunity at better mental health. I am often told that Revere politics amounts to nothing more than a popularity contest during election season; that it’s only about shaking hands and doing favors. I refuse to believe that it’s simply that shallow. With more young people suffering from depression and other issues, we can no longer ignore the mental health crisis in our backyard. While this may not be popular to say, in good conscientious, I surely will not avoid saying it. y name is John Kingston and I am pleased to announce my candidacy for one of the six positions on the Revere School Committee. The Revere Public Schools have been a big part of my life. I attended Revere Public Schools and graduated from Revere High School as did my daughter Jennifer and my son, Jeffrey. My father, George Kingston, was a teacher and principal in the Revere Public Schools for over thirty years. My brother is a twenty-threeyear veteran of the Revere Public Schools, currently at Revere High School. My daughter, Jennifer, is in her sixth year of teaching at the Whelan School. As the son of an educator, you could say education is in my blood. While my children were attending Revere schools, I began to volunteer wherever I could to help. PTA, school improvement councils at multiple schools, school safety at the Lincoln School, working with Revere SEPAC, Revere High School Accreditation, and assisting on countless fundraising ventures for all of the schools. Many of these activities have continued after my children graduated from Revere High School. I am always trying to help where I can, that is who I am.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE–Friday, October 4 , 2019 Page 15 Revere remembers lives lost to addiction A By Tara Vocino lthough loved ones remember daily, they remembered together during the 13th Annual Revere Beach Memorial at the William Reinstein Bandstand, which was a candlelight vigil in remembrance of those lives lost to the disease of addiction. Felipe Aguilera spoke in memory of his older brother, John, 44, who died of a drug overdose. He said he looked up to him and admired his gogetter, fearless attitude. “I stand here today, because I believe we need to educate others that people that struggle with addiction and mental illness are somebody’s father, brother, son, mother, sister, daughter, etc.,” said Aguilera, who grew up in Fords Village in Beachmont. “I think people forget that sometimes.” He encouraged listeners to not judge addicts, but instead help them to recover, as referenced in First John in the Bible: “A new command I give you: Love one another as I have loved you. So you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another” (John 13:34-35 NIV). He went on to say that nobody can do it alone. “It takes a community,” Aguilera said. “Together we can make a difference and help one another.” Tara Vocino may be reached at printjournalist1@gmail.com. Event organizers: Police Chief James Guido, Harm Reduction Specialist contractor Gary Langis, North Suffolk Mental Health Director of Addiction Services Kim Hanton, Substance Use Disorder Initiatives (SUDI) Office Direct Services Coordinator Carrieann Salemme, Police Capt.

Third Annual Beachmont Multicultural Festival By Kathleen Heiser M usic, dancers, puppets, painters, kids, old folk and young folk played, ate and had fun. The Beachmont Improvement Committee (BIC) hosted its third annual Multicultural Festival on Saturday, September 28. Beautiful weather made Jim Kimmerle Park a lovely setting for the bustling crowd. Entertainment started with the Omar Sosa Trio followed by Veronica Robles Cultural Center presenting both children and adult dancers from Mexico and other Latin and South Seniors learn about insurance options from United Healthcare American countries all dressed in authentic native dress. Laurie Gardin Zieden added her beautiful voice with sounds of Barbara Streisand. Dozens of children and adults paraded down the sidewalk on Bennington Street donning bright and colorful puppets. Everyone loves a parade! Len Piazza, a lifelong resident “real home town boy” was honored by the BIC for his lifetime achievements. His 1945 yearbook describes Len as “wearing sharp socks, tall and willowy, a good worker, always on the go, one of the comics in the class, and a great man with the ladies!” Len hasn’t changed all that much in his 92 years. There was plenty to do, plenUnited Healthcare recently presented insurance options to seniors at the Rossetti-Cowan Senior Center.

The Little Free Libraries of Revere encouraged folks to “take a book, leave a book” at any of the 18 locations in the city. On display were some of the 300 books donated by the Row, Row, Row team. You could even quite easily register to vote with the Election Commission, and Mobile City Hall was there with 311 information. With the help of many youth volunteers from the High School, games from the Recreation Department, and with a very supportive presence from the Revere Police Department, it was a perfect day in Beachmont.

Survey hopes to expand farming opportunities in Revere By Alexis Mikulski L ast week, Revere on the Move, an organization that promotes healthy food choices around the city, sent out a survey to the Revere community in the hopes of expanding and improving the new Revere Urban Farming Committee. The survey, which contained two-questions and the chance for participants to win $50, wanted to give residents the opportunity to provide feedback on ways the organization can increase resources to further develop farming communities in Revere. “We want to make it easier for people in Revere to move more and more and eat healthier. It’s very simple,” said Viviana Cataño, the Communications Manager of Revere CARES. “We want to provide food and farming access that is local and have a chance to hear from residents about what areas interest them and how we can give them the resources to make that happen.” The Revere Urban Farming Committee, a sub-section of Revere CARES, has been in the making for the last 10 years. The organization became possible due to a collaboration between the coalition and the City of Revere. “We have two community gardens and a farmers market, and we thought to ourselves, ‘How can we expand?’” said Cataño. “Urban farming can mean many things, such as composting, helping people grow food in their own backyard and providing workshops where they can learn these tools.” Cataño, who has been a lifelong city dweller, explained that she knows from firsthand experience how difficult it can be to learn these traits. “No one in my family knew how to garden, and I would constantly kill basil,” she said. “After having a friend build me a raised garden bed, I went from killing basil to having an abundance of tomatoes. This summer I didn’t have to purchase any vegetables because I had enough food for me and my two children.” “We want to help residents in the same way,” said Cataño. In addition to participating in the survey, the Revere Urban Farming Committee has a plethora of events residents can participate in. “We just wrapped up our summer series with a gardening basics workshop, and we had a beekeeper talk about the importance of bees,” said Cataño. “Just last week we finished a composting workshop. With winter coming there isn’t anything planned for the next couple of months, but every year we open the list to the available community garden spots,” she said. “We currently have a waiting list for these plots, so after we analyze the results of the survey, we can see what resources we need more of and what partnerships we need to build.” The survey is currently still live and allows residents to input additional comments at the end. There are English, Arabic and Spanish versions available online. and maintenance. “When we were notified of some infrastructure issues in our senior center we took immediate action,” Mayor Arrigo said. “Our seniors deserve the best and we won’t allow maintenance issues like these to be kicked down the line.” Completed repairs included repairs to the elevator, water pumps and other electrical and sanitary corrections including: - Solidifying hydraulic guidelines and correcting elevator operational issues - Installation of a new sump pump, electrical outlet and dedicated electrical line to remove water and prevent future issues - Cleaning of the basement floor to remove water, stains and debris and allow easy access - Removal of older, out of use electrical panels, junction boxes and other electrical components - Collection and removal of trash and junk Volleyball team improves to 9-1 By Greg Phipps T hree solid Greater Boston League wins helped the Revere High School volleyball team improve their season record to 9-1 as of early this week. The Patriots defeated Everett on Monday for their ninth victory. In last week’s action, Isabella Martinez drilled 10 kills and setter David Del Rio contributed 11 assists in a 3-0 sweep of Medford. That victory was followed by a close 3-2 triumph at Malden, where Revere fell behind by two sets before battling back to win the next three games. Del Rio was huge with 29 assists, and Martinez led the offensive attack with 17 kills. Olivia Winsor had 16 kills and four blocks. Other contributors included Lynzie Anderson with 11 kills and Tracy Gutierrez with two kills, three block assists and four service aces. The Patriots finished off the week by facing Everett last Friday in its first home match of the season (due to floor repairs at the Revere gym). Head coach Lianne O’Hara Mimmo said many players contributed to the Everett win “but we earned most of our points off of Everett errors.” The coach cited the standout play from first-year player Gianna Mahoney, who is developing into a defensive specialist. After last week’s play, Mahoney had 20 service aces to go with 37 playable digs and 31 passes in service-receive. Like us on Facebook advocate newspaper Facebook.com/Advocate.news.ma

Page 22 THE REVERE ADVOCATE–Friday, October 4 , 2019 Revere girls’ soccer notches seventh win Offense does the job for Pats in win over Rams Revere girls’ soccer captains Elsy Romero, Carolina Bettero, Camila Perez and Luana Barbosa (Advocate Photos by Greg Phipps) By Greg Phipps R evere girls’ soccer head coach Megan O’Donnell was asked after Monday’s win over Lynn English what the key to her team’s success has been this year. “We’re working together and there’s a lot of teamwork,” she said. “We’re moving the ball well and the team never gives up. They continue to fight and work hard no matter what.” Certainly the strong ball movement was on display on Monday at Revere High School Field, where the Lady Patriots scored twice in each half and defeated the Lady Bulldogs, 4-2. Sophomore forward Carolina Bettero was the biggest weapon offensively, as she scored three times. Bettero’s most impressive score came early in the second half when she dribbled through several English defenders and poked a shot into the far corner of the net for a 3-1 lead. She would score again later to increase the margin to 4-1. A goal in the waning seconds by English accounted for the final result. Revere’s Nahomy Galvez Martinez, a freshman, opened the scoring at 14:30 of the first half when she took a cross pass from Bettero and slammed a shot into an open net. Bettero added Revere’s second tally 15 minutes later off a feed from Sofia Choqri. The Lady Bulldogs did threaten several times and finally broke through with a goal just before halftime to make it 2-1 at the break. Revere goalie Camila Perez was called upon Lady Patriots’ forward Carolina Bettero races past a Lynn English defender in Monday’s win at home. Patriots senior RB Joe Llanos had another big game with 200 yards rushing and two scores in last Friday’s win over Lynn Classical at Harry Della Russo Stadium. (Advocate Photo by Greg Phipps) By Greg Phipps O n a night when the defense was less than stellar, the Revere Patriots got in gear offensively and outscored the Lynn Classical Rams, 43-26, in a Northeastern Conference clash last Friday at Harry Della Russo Stadium. It was Revere’s third win in a row to start the season, as the Patriots were perfect on their three-game home stand. This was probably the most impressive victory so far for Revere. The Rams are a formidable foe, having knocked off legendary powerhouse Brockton for their only win earlier in the season. On Friday, there was a total of 10 touchdowns scored and, fortunately, it was the home team that had the larger number of scores. It looked like the Patriots Revere’s Luana Barbosa fights for ball possession against Lynn English on Monday. to make a number of challenging saves that helped keep the lead intact. “The ball movement was the biggest key for us today. We got everyone involved [offensively],” O’Donnell pointed out. “We kept shooting, which is good, but I’d like to see us finding the back of the net more often. Hopefully, that will come as the season progresses.” O’Donnell also cited the strong on-the-field bond being forged by sophomore teammates Bettero and Choqri. “They just started playing together this year, and they’re showing good chemistry together,” she said. The Lady Patriots had yet to lose after Monday’s win, as they upped their season mark to 7-0-1. might be on their way to another convincing win (They had outscored the opposition 62-8 the first two weeks) when touchdowns by Jonathan Murphy, Zach Furlong and Lucas Barbosa gave them a 20-0 bulge. A late second-quarter TD got Classical back in it at 20-7 entering the half. The Rams drew closer at 2014 early in the third quarter before Revere running back Joe Llanos scampered 54 yards for a TD, and kicker Rayan Riazi later booted a 44-yard field goal for a 29-14 Revere advantage. After the Rams pulled to within 29-20, Llanos struck again by racing 35 yards for what turned out to be the game-clinching touchdown. Classical attempted an onside kick late, but Riazi was able to pick it up and run 50 yards the other way for the game’s final score. Llanos led the way for the Patriots’ offense, amassing 200 yards rushing and adding two more TDs to his early-season total. Revere head coach Lou Cicatelli was obviously pleased with the offensive output but heeded some warning after seeing his defense, which had given up just one touchdown in its first two games, surrender points and yards to the Rams. “When you can move the ball around and get a lot of guys involved what’s better in high school football?” he asked the press after the contest. “There was no quit in Classical, though. This game goes another quarter and who knows? We were fortunate to get out of here with a win.” The 3-0 Patriots look to make it four straight when they travel to Stackpole Field in Saugus to take on the 0-3 Sachems this Saturday afternoon (scheduled 2:30 p.m. kickoff). Saugus suffered a tough 43-0 loss to Marblehead in its home opener last week.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE–Friday, October 4 , 2019 Page 23 Len Piazza, a real hometown guy L By Carol Tye en Piazza is a real hometown boy. Born on July 28, 1927, in the Revere Hospital, he went to three Revere schools: the Shurtleff, the McKinley, and Revere High School, from which he graduated in 1945. In the ’45 yearbook, he is described as “wearing sharp socks, tall and willowy, a good worker, always on the go, one of the comics in the class, and a great man with the ladies!” Len hasn’t changed all that much in his 92 years. Like so many others of his “greatest generation,” Len entered the service (the U. S. Navy) immediately after graduation. After basic training as a firefighter, he assisted in the commissioning of the USS Leyte, which was then our largest aircraft carrier, with a crew of 5,000. Although he loved traveling to Cuba and passing through the Panama Canal to Peru and Chile – especially because everyone loved Americans then, he was happy to be honorably discharged in 1948. Len returned to his parents’ house at 148 Warren St., where he received his bonus of $20 a week for one year. (He gave his mother $10 and kept $10 for himself.) His first job lasted only one day. When he came home from the East Boston shipyard with holes burned in his clothes, his mother (on the advice of a neighbor) sent him to Dewey Square to the Acme Steel Company. To his interview he wore a white wool jacket and bright blue pants, and he was hired as a shipping clerk at $39 per week. Throughout his 16 years of employment there, the company KINGSTON | FROM PAGE 13 Revere Municipal Employees Federal Credit Union for the last 19 years with the last 11 serving as the manager/treasurer. My employment has afforded me the opportunity to work with teachers and other school staff each and every day, helping them with their financial needs. This has granted me the unique ability to see what goes on in the schools. This valuable time has afforded me the opportunity to see what we need to do to help the children and all those involved in the Revere Public Schools. I spearheaded the opening of a branch of the Credit Union at Revere High School. This has brought some degree of financial literacy to the over 2300 students and staff in the building. It is common for me to go to RHS advisories to talk to the students about financial literaed through all the departments. At the time that the company was bought out by Mobil Oil, he was managing $3,000,000 in accounts. The business from which Len would retire in 1992 was Bicknell and Fuller Corrugated Container Company. There he received continual recognition for his success in design, sales and customer service. His contribution to the success of the company resulted in his being named vice president of sales. Sadly, Len’s beloved wife, Len Piazza recognized his talent and work ethic, moving him up the ranks and sending him traveling all over New England to train employees at other sites. We all know that Lennie is very social. On a night in 1949, when he accompanied his cousin Josephine to a party, he was particularly attracted to a redheaded girl. So he joined with three guys from Broadway to take four girls, all telephone operators from Beachmont, home in a cab. And he was thrilled to get the telephone number of that redhead, Shirley Young. They were married in 1950; their reception was at the old General Edwards Inn, and they moved into the first floor apartment at 177 Bellingham Ave., where they raised their daughter, Deborah Ann, and their son, Robert Leonard. When Acme Steel moved to Philadelphia, Len applied to the Container Corporation of America, then located in Medford. This time he wore a blue suit to the interview. Once again his talent and work ethic resulted in his being continually promotcy and how to be prepared for their financial futures. Financial literacy will be required to graduate in the coming years as the State adds it to the curriculum. Dedication and hard work are important to me, aside from all I do for my city, I still work a part time union job. I am a proud and loyal member of UFCW Local 1445. My union affiliation has taught me the value of working together to achieve a common goal. The common goal I look forward to the most is working for the children of Revere. This work will include building a new Revere High School to prepare our children for 21st century careers. We must work together to ensure that each student has every opportunity to reach their potential. Thank for your time and I hope you consider me for one of your six votes. If you have any questions or Shirley, passed in 1996. Len remained the caretaker for Shirley’s aunt for many years. He still lives at 177 Bellingham Ave., the house in which Deborah and Robert were raised. In his retirement years, Len is a civic activist. The list of his contributions to our community include the Children’s Charity of the Beachmont VFW, the Beachmont Summer’s End Barbecue to benefit MDA, the Revere Historical Society, which as president for three years he shepherded through extremely hard times, the Rumney Marsh Burying Ground (rebuild and Bocce Tournament), the Beachmont Improvement Committee and the Knights of Columbus. He is also an usher at the Immaculate Conception Church. In all these endeavors, Leonard is an active participant. He is still motivated by a strong work ethic to use his talents to serve his/our community.

CHANGES IN CAMPAIGN FINANCE LAWS FOR LEGISLATIVE CANDIDATE (H 4087) House 121-35, approved and sent to the Senate a bill making changes in the state’s campaign finance rules for candidates running for a seat in the Massachusetts House or Senate. Provisions include requiring legislators and candidates for the state Legislature to set up depository committees with a bank, similar to statewide candidates; requiring itemized disclosures to be filed quarterly for the first 18 months of the two-year election cycle, and before the primary and general elections of an election year; and increasing the number of reports for each candidate from five to nine per cycle. The controversial part of the bill was changing how the director of the Office of Campaign and Political Finance (OCPF) is chosen. The controversy comes amidst speculation that current OCPF Director Michael Sullivan, who has held the job since 1994, may soon retire. Under current law, the director is appointed by a 4-member committee including the state chair of the Democratic party, the state chair of the Republican party, the secretary of state and the dean of a law school located in Massachusetts to be appointed by the governor. The director must be appointed by a unanimous vote of the four members. Under the proposed legislation, the director is comprised of a 5-member committee including the governor, the attorney general, the secretary of state and two people appointed by that preceding trio, one who must be an elected municipal official and the other an elected county official. The director must be appointed by at least a 4/5 vote of the five members and no more than three commissioners can be from the same political party. Rep. John Lawn (DWatertown), the House chair of the Elections Laws Committee and the Democratic leadership in the House led the fight to change the makeup of the commission and to reduce to 4/5 the current unanimous requirement necessary to appoint the director. Republicans and a handful of Democrats voted in favor of leaving the makeup of the committee intact and requiring a unanimous vote for appointment. Lawn did not respond to repeated requests by Beacon Hill Roll Call for a statement on the legislation. “We are supportive of any initiatives that increase election transparency and lessen the appearance of partisanship,” said Democratic party chair Gus Bickford. “As we have seen with the Trump Administration’s craven disabling of the Federal Elections Commission, voting rights should exist free of any real or perceived partisan action. I applaud the legislature for looking into ways we can protect our election process.” “This proposal further proves that the Democrats are shameless and will stop at nothing to maintain their stranglehold on power in the commonwealth,” Massachusetts Republican Party Chair Jim Lyons said. “This is an obvious power play to eliminate any say that the minority party has when it comes to selecting the next OCPF director.” “This is nothing more than a solution in search of a problem,” said GOP Minority Leader Brad Jones (R-North Reading) who led the unsuccessful effort to adopt several amendments. ”And it would unfairly limit or exclude the minority party’s ability to participate in the selection process.” “There are a lot of good things in this bill that I support, including a provision to bring the campaign finance reporting requirement for state legislators in line with those who hold statewide elected office by requiring legislative candidates to designate a bank as a depository for their campaign finance funds,” Jones continued. “I would have voted for this bill if not for the ‘poison pill’ … that would severely diminish Republican input in selecting the director of the state’s Office of Campaign and Political Finance by removing the state party chair from the nominating commission.” (A Yes» vote is for the bill. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent 4087) Yes Yes MAKEUP OF COMMISSION (H House 46-112, rejected an amendment that would leave the current makeup of the commission intact. “By all accounts, the existing system has worked well,” said Jones. “The current makeup of the commission ensures full participation and input by both Democrats and Republicans by requiring the state chairs of both parties to serve as voting members. If something isn’t broken, then why try to fix a problem that doesn’t exist?” «I think taking party chairs, both Democrats and Republicans, out of the process is depoliticizing the process,” said House Speaker Bob DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “I think it’s the right thing to do.” (A Yes» vote is for the amendment. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent No No UNANIMOUS VOTE (H 4087) House 34-124, rejected an amendment that would require a unanimous instead of a 4/5 vote of the five commissioners to appoint the director. “Requiring a unanimous vote by the commission members to select an OCPF director offers a safeguard to prevent disenfranchising either political party,” said Jones. “Since the proposed make-up of the new commission does not explicitly guarantee minority party representation, it is important that we retain the current requirement for a unanimous vote so that every member has an equal say in the process, regardless of their party affiliation.” “Why?” asked Rep. Josh Cutler (D-Duxbury). “Just means we could have gridlock like the Federal Elections Commission. Four-fifths is still a high bar.” (A Yes» vote is for the amendment. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent No No ONE DEMOCRAT AND ONE REPUBLICAN (H 4087) House 39-119, rejected an amendment requiring at least one Democrat and one Republican on the commission. “By default, the proposed five-member commission would include at least one Republican, namely Gov. Baker,” said Jones. “However, in the future, we could have a Democratic governor, which would alter the equation. Even though the bill prohibits more than three commissioners from being enrolled in the same political party, this does not guarantee a Republican will hold a seat because the remaining two commissioners could be unenrolled or affiliated with some other political third party. By stipulating that at least one member be a Republican and at least one member be a Democrat, we can guarantee that the majority party and the minority party continue to have a role to play in the process.” “The point of the bill is to take political party leaders out of the process,” said Cutler. [There is already] a requirement that one party can’t dominate. [We need] elected accountable leaders making choices, not party insiders chosen only by their partisans.” (A Yes» vote is for the amendment. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent 3087) No No ETHICS BACKGROUND (H House 42-116, rejected an amendment requiring a background investigation to be conducted into the financial stability, integrity and responsibility of each candidate of the commission, including the candidate’s reputation for good character and honesty. The amendment also would make anyone who has been convicted of a felony ineligible to serve on the commission. “The OCPF serves an important purpose by enforcing campaign finance laws and making sure elected officials and candidates for public office are fully transparent in reporting all of their campaign fundraising activities and expenditures,” Jones said. “Because the commission is entrusted with nominating the director of OCPF, it is important that all of its members be held to a high moral and ethical standard, and that anyone convicted of a felony be excluded from serving as a commissioner.” “These things are certainly important but there is already a vetting process in place,” Cutler said. “And there are already ethics compliance steps in place.” (A Yes» vote is for the amendment. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent No No USE CAMPAIGN MONEY FOR CHILDCARE (H 4087) House 155-0, approved an amendment that would establish a special legislative commission to examine the feasibility of authorizing the use of campaign funds to pay for childcare services by candidates for state, county and municipal elected office. «As they currently exist, Massachusetts’ campaign finance laws may discourage individuals, particularly based on gender and socioeconomic status, from running for office,” said the amendment’s sponsor Rep. Joan Meschino (D-Hull). “Childcare is a professional expense that unlocks economic potential, and in this case, opens the door to broader civic engagement and public service. I am grateful for the special legislative commission as a mechanism to create opportunities to support a more diverse pool of candidates for public office.» (A Yes» vote is for the amendment. A «No» vote is against it.) Rep. Bob DeLeo Rep. RoseLee Vincent Yes Yes HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. 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 September 2327, the House met for a total of seven hours and 8 minutes while the Senate met for a total of one hour and 53 minutes. Monday, Sept. 23 House 11:01 a.m. to 11:19 a.m. Senate 11:05 a.m. to 11:48 a.m. Tuesday, Sept. 24 No House session Wednesday, Sept. 25 House 11:03 a.m. to 5:39 p.m. Thursday, Sept. 26 House 11:00 a.m. to 11:12 a.m. Friday, Sept. 27 No House session No Senate session.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE–Friday, October 4 , 2019 Page 27 Savvy Senior An Affordable Way to Go Cremation: Dear Savvy Senior, How much does cremation cost and how can I find a good deal in my area? I would like to get a simple, basic cremation that doesn’t cost me, or my family, a lot of money. Dear Frugal, Cremation costs can vary widely. Depending on your location, the provider and the services you request, cremation can range anywhere from $500 to $7,500 or more. But that’s a lot cheaper than a full-service funeral and cemetery burial that averages nearly $11,000 today. Here are some tips to help you get a good deal. Shop Around Because prices can vary sharply by provider, the best way to get a good price on a simple “no frills” cremation is to call several funeral homes in your area (most funeral homes provide cremation services) and compare prices. When you call, ask them specifically how much they charge for a “direct cremation,” which is the basic option and the least expensive. With direct cremation, there’s no embalming, formal viewing or funeral. It only includes the essentials: picking up the body, completing the required paperwork, the cremation itself and providing ashes to the family. If your family wants to have a memorial service, they can have it at home or your place of worship after the cremation, in the presence of your remains. If you want additional services beyond what a direct cremation offers, ask the funeral home for an itemized price list that covers the other service costs, so you know exactly what you’re getting. All providers are required by law to provide this. To locate nearby funeral homes, look in your local yellow pages, or Google “cremation” or “funeral” followed by your city and state. You can also get good information online at Parting. com, which lets you compare prices from funeral providers in your area based on what you want. Or, if you need more help contact your nearby funeral consumer alliance program (see Funerals.org/local-fca or call 802-865-8300 for contact information). These are volunteer groups located in most regions around the country that offer a wide range of information and prices on local funeral and cremation providers. Pricey Urns The urn is an item you need to be aware of that can drive up cremation costs. Funeral home urns usually cost around $100 to $300, but you aren’t required to get one. Most funeral homes initially place ashes in a plastic bag that is inserted into a thick cardboard box. The box is all you need if you intend to have your ashes scattered. But if you want something to display, you can probably find a nice urn or comparable container online. Walmart.com and Amazon. com for example, sells urns for under $50. Or, you may want to use an old cookie jar or container you have around the house instead of a traditional urn. Free Cremation Another option you may want to consider that provides free cremation is to donate your body to a university medical facility. After using your body for research, they will cremate your remains for free (some programs may charge a small fee to transport your body to their facility), and either bury or scatter your ashes in a local cemetery or return them to your family, usually within a year or two. To find a medical school near you that accepts body donations, the University of Florida maintains a directory at Anatbd.acb.med.ufl.edu/usprograms. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.
