THE ADVOCATE - A HOUSEHOLD WORD IN REVERE Vol.29, No.42 -FREEwww.advocatenews.net Free Every Friday State approves loan forgiveness for city wastewater and sewer upgrades By Adam Swift T he City of Revere recently received some good news about its nearly decade-long wastewater and sewer upgrades mandated by the state and federal governments. The Massachusetts Clean Water Trust recently announced that the Revere project received loan forgiveness for $398,262 of the just over $4 million slated for Phase 10 construction of the project. The news of the loan relief came shortly after the City Council approved loans for phases 11 and 12 of the project. Phase 10 construction “is in progress and will continue in the spring after a likely winter shutdown,” said Nicholas Rystrom, the City Engineer. “Phase 10 work is focused on streets in our Flow Meter 8 area, which are streets in the Beachmont neighborhood.” The Phase 10 construction project includes the removal of infi ltration and infl ow from the city’s sewer system and the redirection of public and private infl ow sources discovered during the Phase 10 Field Investigations, Illicit Discharge Detection Elimination Source Removal, and Drainage Improvements project. Those illicit connections include sump pumps and roof leaders that have been or will be removed from the city’s sewer system to remove infl ow and increase wastewater capacity, according to the MassaLOAN | SEE Page 17 $1.55 GALLON We accept: MasterCard * Visa * & Discover Price Subject to Change without notice 100 Gal.

By race, 80 percent of the city’s residents identify as white, and 5 percent as Asian, 6 percent as Black/African American, 5 percent as some other race and 4 percent as two or more races. Coolidge noted that in the race data many Hispanics or Latinos identify as white. The ethnicity demographics show 32 percent of the city’s residents identifying as Hispanic or Latino and 68 percent as not Hispanic or Latino. “Most of the data is from the American Community Survey conducted by the U.S. Census Bureau,” said Coolidge. “Broken out, about 44 percent of the city identifi es as a race other than white, non-Hispanic.” The demographic data shows that the older age groups are predominately white, nonHispanic, and the percentages decrease in the younger age groups. “The under 20 and 2034 ranges have a significant majority who would be considered People of Color,” said Coolidge. Nowhere is that number more evident than in the school population, where Hispanics or Latinos make up 57 percent of the students, but less than 4 percent of the teachers. Other demographic information showed that Hispanics and Latinos and Blacks are less likely to own a home than white people in Revere, and that those populations have a greater burden of their income taken up by rent and home ownership costs. “This gives us a good understanding of where the city is demographically and racially, and who has access to what and where we need to put our attention to those who probably need more access,” said Commission Member and Assistant Superintendent of Equity and Inclusion Lourenço Garcia. Commission Member and Founder of Moroccan American Connections in Revere Rachid Moukhabir noted that the numbers may undercount certain populations in the city. “There is a huge Moroccan population in Revere that is not refl ected in the statistics,” he said. “There are almost 20 percent of the students at the Beachmont School who are of Moroccan descent. It’s a huge population and we need to fi nd a way to capture that data.” Revere Chief Innovation Offi - cer Reuben Cantor said the city will continue to collect and refi ne its racial and demographic information. Mayor Brian Arrigo had some words of encouragement for the commission as the Zoom meeting came to a close. “I know that all of you are going to do some great work,” he said. “The one thing I want to impress on every single one of you on this call now is that I want all of you to think about how you can challenge us as leaders of the city to do better.” In other business related to racial equity, last week Arrigo announced that Revere, along with fi ve other Greater Boston communities, will participate in the Racial Equity Municipal Action Plan (REMAP) program, a collaboration between the Metropolitan Area Planning Council (MAPC), the Government Alliance on Race and Equity (GARE) and the Federal Reserve Bank of Boston (FRBB). The program will help the city explore racial equity in Revere and help tackle causes of inequality in the community. The fi rst four months of the year-long program will focus on training, reflection and self-assessment. In the fi - nal eight months, each municipality will develop a racial equity municipal action plan and begin to implement elements of the plan. Looking for a home loan?

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 3 ConCom gives okay to Yacht Club dock storage T By Adam Swift he Point of Pines Yacht Club will be storing some of its docks and fl oats next to the club, as well as near a berm it created as a barrier against fl ooding back in the 1980s. Last week, the Conservation Commission gave its permission for the dock and fl oat storage for the second consecutive year, although one city councillor said he wants to see the Yacht Club, City of Revere offi cials, and nearby residents meet to discuss longer solutions to any potential environmental issues near the club. “Last year, we had a unique situation with a lot of catastrophic storms that destroyed a lot of our dockage,” said Jay Bolton, Commodore of the Point of Pines Yacht Club. “We needed a plan to store them and put them where we could work on them.” That plan was placing four of the docks next to the yacht club building for easy access for repairs, as well as up to 15 docks and floats on the berm over the dune created by the yacht club to protect the neighborhood against flooding. Bolton MORTGAGE | FROM Page 1 gle/condo, two-family, threefamily • Property must be owner-occupied • Homeowner income cannot exceed HUD’s 80% Area Median Income (AMI) • Property must be up to date on tax payments and have no outstanding violations • Tenant rental arrearages do not qualify for mortgage assistance, but may qualify for rental assistance. This announcement is the latest commitment the city government has made to ensure housing stability for Revere residents throughout the COVID-19 pandemic. Revere’s Rental Assistance Program remains open for renters who are late on rental payments as a result of COVID-19. Additionally, the City of Revere has used Federal CARES funding to hire Housing Stability Offi cer Valentina Moreno, who will support residents directly in navigating housing programs, benefi ts and challenges. She can be reached at vmoreno@revere.org.

The history of the berm and dune go back to the No Name storm in the 1980s. “We were asked after the No Name storm, because of the fl ooding, to build a berm, and we did so, and we were asked to maintain it for 10 years back in the 1980s,” said Bolton. “So we are obviously past that time, and we obviously don’t want to take that berm out because we want to protect the neighborhood from fl ooding.” Bolton stated that it’s always a catch-22 as far as storing the docks in the winter and keeping the neighbors happy. “Another thing the neighbors ask us is not to stack those fl oats so high [in the parking lot],” Bolton said, since it blocks the view of the ocean. However, if the fl oats are spread out, he said, it eats up more of the club’s parking spaces, potentially upsetting neighbors by having more visitors looking for parking along Rice Avenue. Ward 5 Councillor John Powers, who represents the Point of Pines area, said that the yacht club has been a good partner with the City over the years. “But I think our fi rst priority is to the residents in that area; those are the people that live there,” said Powers. “Even though [the vegetation] will come back, it sort of slows the growth of that vegetation, and the dunes down there and the dune grass does a lot to protect the neighborhood all along Rice Avenue, and that is not something I would want to see in any way impacted for any particular reason.” Powers said he would like to set up a meeting when the Coronavirus pandemic is over with the yacht club, city offi cials and neighbors to discuss long-term environmental and mitigation issues in the area. Bolton said he would be open to a meeting. “Let’s put this to rest and defi ne what can and can’t, and what should and shouldn’t be done so that we are all on the same track here,” said Powers. Conservation Commission Chair Nick Moulaison said he would also be open to a “big picture” meeting, but in the meantime, he recommended approval to let the yacht club store the docks as requested. “I think the best option right now is to allow them to do this and give the stipulation that if there is a problem with the dune grass and it doesn’t grow back, it’s the responsibility of the yacht club to bring it back no matter how much it costs,” said Moulaison. Bolton said one long-term fi x could be to beef up the dune on the property. “It doesn’t do anyone any good if the neighbors are fl ooded out, and it doesn’t do us any good if our parking lot is fl ooded out,” he said. The Conservation Commission ruled that the yacht club can go forward with its dock and fl oat storage plan. In other business, the commission approved a postponement for Amazon’s plan to increase parking at its VFW Parkway facility. Moulaison said he expects Amazon to be back before the commission with a revised plan next month. Lawrence A.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 5 Many Greater Boston colleges able to keep COVID threat at bay By Christopher Roberson D uring the opening weeks of the fall semester, the majority of colleges and universities in Greater Boston have been able to shield themselves from the affl ictions of the COVID-19 pandemic. Katherine Gianni, spokesperson for Boston University, said approximately 200,000 COVID-19 tests were administered during the past 10 weeks. “Generally, things are going very well and we’re pleased with the success of our screening, testing, contact tracing and other measures to limit and contain the spread of the virus,” she said. “By and large, our students are complying with the commitments and expectations they have agreed to.” Joseph O’Connell, spokesperson for Regis College, said a “limited number” of students, faculty and staff returned to campus last month, thereby keeping the number of positive cases under control. “They are adhering to a strict and robust return protocol that includes weekly testing and required mask wearing, among other measures,” he said. “We are pleased with how the semester has gone so far and continue to monitor the spread of the virus.” Daniel Magazu, spokesperson for Framingham State University, said there have only been a few minor hiccups since the semester began. “Students, faculty and staff have done a good job overall of following our safety guidelines around face coverings, social distancing and avoiding large gatherings,” he said. “We have not Veterans Day Dinner Dance cancelled this year A s a result of the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic, the annual Veterans Day Dinner Dance, which is usually held the week of Veterans Day, has been cancelled. The Veterans Committee and the Department of Veterans Services wish everyone a safe and healthy holiday. Please remember to wear your masks, keep a safe distance and remember our veterans. had any major student disciplinary issues to this point. We’ve followed up on reports of small student gatherings off campus, but nothing has risen to the level of a major disciplinary issue.” Magazu also said the university’s positive test rate has been well below the state average at 0.61 percent during the past 30 days. At Emerson College, spokesperson Rosemary Lavery said the college is utilizing its Campus Compact and the One Emerson Flex Learning Model for the fall semester. “The college has worked closely with our community members to ensure they understand the importance of following the Campus Compact, which outlines the health and safety guidelines that will ensure the safety of those on and surrounding campus,” she said. “We are confi dent our community takes these new protocols seriously.” Kimberly Allen, spokesperson for the Massachusetts Institute of Technology (MIT), said the school has reported an “extremely low prevalence” of COVID-19. Although strict penalties are in place for any violations, Allen said, such action has not been necessary thus far. “The vast majority of our students are committed to acting responsibly to ensure their safety and the safety of their peers and neighbors,” she said. However, that has not been the case everywhere as 11 freshmen from Northeastern University were found in the same room at the Westin Hotel in Copley Square. As a result, those students were dismissed from the university for the remainder of the semester and their tuition fees will not be refunded. “Northeastern takes violations of health and safety protocols very seriously,” said Madeleine Estabrook, senior vice chancellor of student affairs. “Cooperation and compliance with public health guidelines is absolutely essential. Those who do not follow the guidelines are putting everyone else at risk.” Estabrook also issued a stern warning at the beginning of the fall term. “Students who attend an unsafe gathering, social or party, either on or off campus can expect suspension,” she said in her letter to the student body. In one Merrimack College residence hall, 47 students tested positive for the virus. The school’s president, Dr. Christopher Hopey, said the building was closed and its 266 residents were moved into isolation. However, additional test results showed that the virus was confi ned to that particular residence hall. “We are optimistic that the campus can stay open and fully operational,” said Hopey. He also defended his reason to invite students back to campus rather than putting the entire semester online. “There are those who will argue the best way to minimize COVID-19 spread is not to have students on campus, but we felt that choice was and still is very harmful to our students, their mental health and their educational progress,” said Hopey. “Merrimack is an anchor organization in the Merrimack Valley and thousands of people are dependent on us being open, being safe and being present.” Gerry D’Ambrosio Attorney-at-Law Is Your Estate in Order?

MassFiscal praises AIM’s position on potential tax hikes T he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance (MassFiscal) recently responded to the Association of Industries of Massachusetts (AIM) coming out against future tax increases that would hurt the state’s businesses. AIM’s newsletter points out the hard reality that countless small businesses are currently facing, many of which are on the verge of collapse. AIM calls for support from Beacon Hill for these businesses, by extinguishing calls for new taxes. “Any tax hike or new tax, whether broad based, targeted (often euphemistically called “user fees”), should be rejected by State House leaders.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 7 Rev. Granitsas: Unwavering hope in the face of a pandemic By Dnee Sirichantaropas R ev. Nicholas Granitsas sat in his offi ce, praying, while across town his longtime friend and parishioner, Roland Morse, was buried alone. Granitsas looked up at the crucifix, his hands shaking underneath the fl uorescent lights. He wished he could be with his friend during his fi nal moments. But the dangers of COVID-19 made it impossible. This has become Granitsas’ new reality. He was no longer able to perform rituals or fulfi ll his usual duties. When Morse died in the ICU at Massachusetts General Hospital, he was one in a long line of Granitsas’ parishioners who will meet the same fate. “I should’ve been there,” Granitsas said. The two men were friends for over 40 years. Granitsas offi ciated at Morse’s wedding ceremony in 1985 and was saddened that he couldn’t perform his funeral services. “He was on the verge of death,” Granitsas said. “And I wasn’t able to be there with him.” Congregational churches and worship services, long known for their adherence to tradition, have been signifi cantly transformed due to the pandemic. More than 90 percent of regular churchgoers in the United States reported that their churches closed to prevent the virus’s spread, according to a survey by the Pew Research Center. Prior to the pandemic, about 175 people regularly attended Sunday services, Granitsas said. Now, about 30 people attend Mass. “Before the pandemic, we had three hardcore regulars in their 90s that never missed a single service,” Granitsas fondly recalled. The Church has been off ering livestream resources for those unable to attend in-person, he said. “Our attendance for live services has greatly reduced,” he said. “But actually, I think we TAX | FROM Page 6 Governor to roll up their sleeves and put the interests of the public ahead of their big government wish lists,” said MassFiscal Spokesperson/Board Member Paul Craney. “State House leaders need to realize they cannot spend their way out of a budget and economic crisis. They cannot tax businesses into prosperity; rather, they should focus on government spending reform.” He added, “Today’s warning by AIM should not fall on deaf ears among State House leaders. It’s a warning for all legishave more altogether because we have people watching on the stream.” Dr. John H. Ewart, director of Pastoral Leadership at the Southeastern Baptist Theological Seminary, said counseling classes and crisis intervention classes are part of the pastoral care training. However, no amount of training could have prepared church leaders on how to shepherd their congregants during the pandemic. “It’s been a huge shock to try to walk through the minefi eld of a church during a pandemic,” Ewart said. According to Ewart, there has been an increase in ministers’ resources on how to handle the pandemic. Centers for preaching and pastoral leadership, faith, culture and missions have released special resources that range from podcasts to panel discussions and blog posts. “There was not a class that was designed for COVID,” Ewart said. “But it will certainly be a part of the curriculum from now on.” One of the most diffi cult challenges Granitsas has had to face is losing close friends and people he considers family. When Granitsas and his family fi rst moved to Revere in 1970, the friendly couple next door would always come over to help out and babysit Granitsas’ young child. “They both died of COVID a month ago,” he said. Although Granitsas feels disheartened by all the losses, his faith remains unbroken. “I still have this joy that no one can take away from me,” Granitsas said. “It’s a gift from God.” Granitsas came to Revere and helped make the Church fl ourish by establishing specialized ministries, which range from annual Gospel music festivals to ESL classes to the Food Pantry, according to Loralei Lauranzano, the Church’s administrative assistant. Lauranzano, who has known Granitsas for more than half of lators, whether they represent the most conservative or the most left-wing districts across the state. Ignoring AIM’s concern, which in turn represents the concerns of businesses all around the state, will only result in a loss of more jobs and a deeper economic hole to climb out of…Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance is pleased to see AIM use their important voice to appropriately weigh in on the looming budget and policy battle that will take place after the election. The employer community is often on the table, and never at the table. It’s time that changes.” her life, said he always lifts everyone’s spirits. His joy is constant and contagious. “Every year, we have church picnic and play softball,” Lauranzano said. “And Pastor Nick is our pitcher every year, all day long. Every age plays. He pitches and he calls and just laughs and enjoys the whole time.” Local parishioner Lisa Sturgis said that finding her way to the Church and to Granitsas changed the trajectory of her whole life. She still looks back to 1979, the year she discovered the Church, as a pivotal point in her life. “Pastor Nick was always prepared for his sermons,” Sturgis said. “He is very knowledgeable and always encouraged people to be who God has called them to be.” He has always been warm, genuine and encouraging, Sturgis recalled. To be able to have that level of caring is a gift. “The thing that shines most brightly in him,” she paused, “is that he cares about people in a way that is palpable.” As Granitsas ended his solemn prayer honoring Morse, his thoughts returned to his parishioners, who need his strength and leadership now more than ever. He made the sign of the cross and stood up. Mass was about to begin. “I have the sense that God is with me,” he said. “He’s going to A.B.C.

This is a modular constructed testing facility within the International Arrival area of pre-security Terminal E that is expected to host seven separate testing rooms with an anticipated capacity to administer more than 400 tests per day. COVID-19 testing options will include a rapid molecular COVID-19 test, the polymerase chain reaction test and the blood antibody test. All three tests are similarly off ered at the XpresCheck locations in JFK International Airport and Newark Liberty International Airport. “We are eager to launch XpresCheck at Boston Logan International Airport, which will be our third COVID-19 testing facility this fall. We believe that our current presence in JFK and Newark, and upcoming expansion to Logan enables us to play an important role in supporting the return of domestic and international air travel to pre-pandemic levels by making sure both airport employees and travelers feel safe and confident when they come to the airport,” said XpresSpa Group CEO Doug Satzman. “As previously indicated, our intention is to continue XpresCheck’s national expansion and we remain in active discussions with additional airports for further development of this concept.” FROM MTVʼS AMERICAʼS BEST DANCE CREW

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 9 RevereTV Spotlight R evereTV recorded its first cooking show in the new kitchen studio! This shoot was a mock cooking show, rather, a run-through only consisting of the current staff . It didn’t hurt that the staff got fresh baked cookies out of the deal. With this shoot, it is now clear that RTV has the tools to complete a multicamera shoot with proper audio, lighting and coverage of the complete kitchen. Once the studio is open to the public, community members will be given information and guidelines about the use of the kitchen studio, as well as a full list of available equipment and appliances. Don’t forget that RevereTV also has a state-of-the-art full television studio, which is used more often for program recordings. Last Thursday, RevereTV covered the Revere Youth Baseball Championship Game at the Griswold Baseball Field. The RTV crew has been covering at least one game a week through the summer season, which has continued through to October due to initial delays. Each game covered has been streamed live to YouTube, Facebook and the RTV Community Channels. Last week’s game was Indians versus Phillies. To view all games covered by RevereTV this year, visit the RTV YouTube page. Replays will also air on Friday and Saturday nights on Comcast channel 8 and 1027 and RCN channel 3 and 614. RevereTV produced a highlight program by a group of Revere youths, along with a RHS staff advisor, who teamed up with City Hall to create the COVID-19 Oral History Project. RevereTV was not part of the actual project but helped with facilitating this specifi c recording. The youths interviewed many people from diff erent backgrounds and professions about their experience with the virus this year. The project is extensive, and the program in the studio was hosted by longtime RTV community member Ed Deveau. The students participated via Zoom while Deveau hosted from the studio. You can soon fi nd this program airing on the RTV community channels, on Facebook and on YouTube. Watch to learn more about this youthled project. To watch government programming, watch RevereTV on Comcast channel 9 or RCN channels 13 and 613. All city meetings air live but can always be found on the RTV YouTube page.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 11 FBI Warns of Potential Charity Fraud Associated with the COVID-19 Pandemic M any Americans want to help during the COVID-19 pandemic by contributing to charities, but the FBI is warning that scammers also want to help—they want to help themselves to your money. Nationwide, the FBI and other law enforcement agencies have received reports of scammers fraudulently soliciting donations for individuals, groups, and areas aff ected by COVID-19. They are leveraging the COVID-19 pandemic to steal your money, your personal information, or both. Don’t let them. Charity scams often occur when a scammer poses as a real charity or uses the name of a real charity to get money from you. Be careful about giving money to any charity calling you for donations and be wary if you get a call about a donation pledge that you don’t remember making. Remember, you can’t always believe your caller ID. Scammers often spoof organizations’ phone numbers. It’s always best to research the organization telephone number yourself and call direct to verify. Do not be pressured or rushed to donate. That is a strong indicator of a scam. Similarly, if you receive an email purporting to be from a charitable organization, do not click on links. These could be attempts to download viruses onto your computer or cell phone. Watch out for charity names which sound very similar to well-known charities, as well as email addresses that are not consistent with the charity soliciting donations. Instead, search for the charity using an internet search engine to ensure you’re connected to the actual charitable organization. The best way to protect yourself is by doing your research. Here are some tips on how to avoid becoming a victim of a charity fraud: • Do your homework when it comes to donations, whether you’re donating through charities, social media, or crowdfunding websites. • Look for online reviews of charity organizations or use information from your state’s regulator of charities or from websites like the Better Business BuGovernor announces COVID-19 measures in place to ensure winter readiness O n October 13 the BakerPolito Administration provided an update on a series of initiatives that will keep supporting the residents of the Commonwealth to stop the spread of COVID-19 and ensure the state’s readiness status heading into the fall and winter. Led by the COVID-19 Command Center, the Administration outlined interdepartmental programs that have been built or expanded since the start of the pandemic in March, all of which strengthen the Commonwealth’s ability and capacity to respond if COVID cases in Massachusetts increase. This includes: • One of the most robust testing networks in the nation • A fi rst-in-class contact tracing network • Investments and strengthened initiatives to provide appropriate care for older adults and staff at Long-Term Care Facilities (LTCF) • Hospital preparedness plans • Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) stockpile investments • Health and Safety requirements to protect teachers and students as schools reopen • A cautious, phased approach to resume business activity Testing Since the start of the pandemic, approximately 4.8 million tests have been administered to more than 2.4 million residents in Massachusetts. Growing steadily from approximately 2,000 tests per day in March to about 13,000 a day in May, today approximately 65,000 tests are administered every day. A key driver in this success has been the Stop the Spread initiative, which has sites in 18 of the highest-risk communities. On October 13 the Administration announced that the Stop the Spread initiative has been extended through December. As part of its readiness, the state now has the in-state lab capacity to process more than 100,000 tests per day if demand warrants. This level of testing, which has an average turnaround time of 1.8 days, is part of a strong readiness foundation to identify COVID, stop the spread and inform policy through data analysis. WINTER | SEE Page 14 reau, give.org, charitynavigator.org, or charitywatch.org to check on the legitimacy of charitable organizations. • Before donating, ask how much of the donation will go toward the program or cause you want to support. Every organization has administrative costs, and it’s important to understand those structures. • Never pay by gift card or wire transfer. Credit cards are safer. • After making a donation, be sure to review your financial accounts to ensure additional funds are not deducted or charged. • Always do your research before clicking on links purporting to provide information on the virus, purchasing COVID-related products online, or providing your personal information in order to receive money or other benefi ts. The FBI has more tips at fbi. gov/charityfraud. If you think you are a victim of a scam or attempted fraud involving COVID-19, report it to the FBI online at tips.fbi.gov and to FTC at: ftc.gov/complaint.

I invite you, your family and your friends to jump in my Delorean time machine and join me every Sunday night between 6 p.m. and 8 p.m. for a trip back to a time we all fondly call “The Good Old Days.” The show is pure fun!

There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call looks at Question 1, one of the two questions on the ballot that will be decided directly by the voters in November. Secretary of State Bill Galvin has mailed the “Information for Voters on the 2020 Ballot Questions,” nicknamed the “Red Book,” to voters across the state. If you didn’t receive a copy, you can see one online at https:// www.sec.state.ma.us/ele/elepdf/ IFV_2020.pdf or call the secretary’s offi ce at 1-800-462-VOTE to have one mailed to you. Question 1 asks voters if they approve of a proposed law that would require that motor vehicle owners and independent repair facilities be WINTER | FROM Page 11 Contact tracing In April – responding quickly to the increasing number of cases – the Commonwealth established the Contact Tracing Collaborative (CTC), a collaboration between the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), local boards of health and Partners in Health. Today, this network includes just less than 2,000 workers who maintain regular connection with and support for individuals who are isolated in quarantine. A team of epidemiologists was recently added to CTC to investigate cases, identify the source of transmission and catch clusters early. To date, more than 100,000 people have been contacted. Hospital readiness Hospitals are now required to continue adherence to the policies put in place upon reopenquired by law to analyze the fi scal consequences if the proposed law is approved. “The proposed law has no discernible material fi scal consequences for state and municipal government fi nances,” says the analysis. “Massachusetts voters voted a record-setting 86 percent in favor of the Right to Repair ballot initiative in 2012,” said Tommy Hickey, Director of the Right To Repair Coalition, the group urging a “yes” vote on Question 1, to Beacon Hill Roll Call. “Technology has evolved and there was a loophole in the law carving out wireless communications that manufacturers are using to restrict access to independent repair shops forcing consumers to dealerships. This ballot initiative would give car owners direct access to their diagnostic and repair information because we, as a coalition, believe if you bought the car, you should get all the information necessary to fi x it and share the information with a repair shop of your choice.” “Question 1 is not Right to Repair,” said Conor Yunits, spokesperson for the Coalition for Safe and Secure Data, the group urging a “no” vote on Question 1, to Beacon Hill Roll Call. “We already have Right to Repair in Massachusetts, and it works: more than 70 percent of post-warranty repairs are done by independent mechanics. They are a critical piece of the repair network and that will not change. Question 1 is about major national retail chains like AutoZone and NAPA spending $21 million in Massachusetts because they want your data. Question 1 creates an ‘open access platform’ that connects to every vehicle in Massachusetts and unlocks a secure system, which is why the National Highway Traffi c Safety Administration warns that malicious actors could access and potentially take control of your vehicle.” A dispute has also erupted between the two groups on whether the availability of this information can be dangerous for victims ing to ensure continued readiness, including regarding PPE inventories, Intensive Care Unit (ICU) nursing staffi ng ratios, and strictly ensuring suffi cient inpatient capacity. Massachusetts hospitals have approximately 50 percent ICU capacity available, plus additional beds can be made available by converting medical or surgical beds through established and proven procedures. Further, temporary spaces can be reused. In the spring, the state set up fi ve alternative medical sites. The Massachusetts Emergency Management Agency (MEMA) is prepared to rapidly reinstate these if necessary. LTCF readiness Caring for older adults in LTCF has been a priority since the earliest days of the pandemic. Early on, the state provided approximately 2.8 million pieces of PPE to nursing homes and opened dedicated COVID isolation spacof domestic violence. “Domestic violence advocates warn how dangerous this information could be,” says Yunits. “Jane Doe Inc., the Massachusetts Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, wrote, ‘Access to vehicle data, particularly call logs and GPS location, enables persons who perpetrate abuse to possess the tools necessary to track and monitor their victim.’” But supporters of Question 1 disagree. “The Jane Doe group was ill-informed that this ballot initiative was about GPS location which it is not,” responded Hickey. “They have since withdrawn their position after fi nding out that this was simply about mechanical information necessary to diagnose, maintain and repair the car. In fact, they have also stated they did not give permission to car manufacturers to use their group’s name in the voter guidebook.” Toni Troop, Director of Communications and Development for Jane Doe Inc., responded to Beacon Hill Roll Call’s request to explain the situation. “This past week, many of you received a 2020 Voters Guide in the mail,” said Troop. “In that guide, Jane Doe, Inc. is quoted and portrayed as opposing Question 1. We would like to be clear that [we were] not consulted about our inclusion in this guide. While Jane Doe Inc. is not taking a public stand on this ballot question, at this time, we do not believe that a yes vote on Question 1 would uniquely compromise survivor safety in the manner portrayed by opponents [of the bill].” Opponents of Question 1 defended their use of the quotes from Jane Doe. “Our Red Book language quotes directly from public testimony Jane Doe Inc. submitted to the Legislature,” countered Yunits. “We followed appropriate channels to inform them this language would be included in the Red Book before it was submitted in July.” “When we were fi rst presented with the Right to Repair issue late last year, we turned to our coalition partners in California for guidance given that they had recently navigated a similar initiative in their state,” said Troop. “Drawing from es and facilities to safely cohort and protect residents and staff and help stop the spread. An additional measure to protect staff and residents: The state implemented a surveillance testing program ahead of federal guidance. From July 1 to October 8, approximately 280,000 state-fi - nanced tests for residents and staff have occurred. The Commonwealth has retained clinical rapid response teams if severe staffi ng shortages occur. The latest set of reforms, which include more than $400 million in new funding for infection control and staffi ng, build on the legislatively authorized Long Term Care Facility Commission’s report. PPE stockpile In the early days of the pandemic, the global supply chain struggled to deliver critical PPE. Massachusetts pursued every piece of it and partnered with local manufacturers, which pivtheir experiences and insight, we wrote testimony in opposition to the Right to Repair legislation. At the time, our analysis of that legislation raised some safety and privacy concerns for victims and survivors of sexual and domestic violence that we did not feel had been adequately addressed by proponents. We raised specifi c concerns regarding the potential for abuse due to the broadening of avenues to abuse access to data.” “Since January, our analysis has evolved,” continued Troop. “The current ballot question proposed is distinct from what was initially proposed in California and does not appear to pose the heightened risk of breach of personal information as suggested by those who oppose this initiative.” “Let’s be very clear,” said Brian Johnson, owner of Brian’s Auto Repair and Tire in Fitchburg and a supporter of Question 1. “Car manufacturers have one goal here, and one goal only—to steer you to their dealerships where you will pay more for the services. They may tell you otherwise, but the bottom line is this: Without access to their secure gateways, we will have no way of accessing the diagnostic information we need. And it is prohibitively expensive to gain that access.” “Right to Repair 2020 is not about repair at all,” said General Manager Jason Pappas of Copeland Chevrolet in Brockton, an opponent of Question 1. “The OnStar system is the largest vehicle telematics system in the United States and as a Chevrolet dealer we do not use it to repair vehicles. We connect to vehicles through the OBD 2 Connector under the dashboard, which is the same way independent repair facilities connect to a vehicle. Vote no on Question 1 and protect your data. This is nothing more than a data grab by aftermarket parts manufacturers and large repair chains.” Here are the offi cial arguments, gathered by the secretary of state, by each side of the question. A maximum of 150 words is allowed. IN FAVOR OF QUESTION #1: Written by Tommy Hickey, Massaoted operations to support essential workers in a time of need. The Commonwealth has added millions of pieces of PPE to the state stockpile over the last several months with suffi cient material to support medical institutions if their supplies run low through 2021. In addition to masks, gowns, gloves and other PPE, the stockpile includes approximately 1,200 ventilators, almost double the number on hand in the spring. For perspective, the peak number of ICU patients was 1,085 in April. K-12 After extensive consultation with infectious disease physicians and pediatricians, the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education provided districts with detailed guidance on how to develop plans for safely delivering in-person instruction. The guidance was endorsed by the Massachusetts Chapter of chusetts Right to Repair, 617-2489772 www.massrighttorepair.org “A yes vote for Right to Repair will guarantee that as technology advances, drivers can continue to get their cars repaired where they want. We passed the fi rst Right to Repair law in 2012, but as new cars become more computerized auto manufacturers are using a loophole to restrict access to data needed to diagnose problems, make repairs and perform maintenance. This means car owners are steered toward more expensive dealer repair options. Vote yes to protect independent repair shops and preserve your ability to shop around. Voting yes provides access only to mechanical and repair information, not personal information. A yes vote ensures that you will have the choice to provide access to the repair information necessary to fi x your car to your local independent repair shop even as cars become more computerized. It’s your car, you paid for it, you should get it fi xed where you want.” AGAINST QUESTION #1: Steve McElhinney, for Safe and Secure Data 617-398-0281 www.safeandsecuredata.org. “Vote no on Question 1 to protect your privacy, your safety and your family. Question 1 has nothing to do with fi xing cars. Question 1 is a data grab by third parties who want to gather your personal vehicle information and access it remotely, including location data in real time. Domestic violence advocates warn how dangerous this information could be. Jane Doe, the Massachusetts Coalition Against Sexual Assault and Domestic Violence, wrote, ‘Access to vehicle data, particularly call logs and GPS location, enables persons who perpetrate abuse to possess the tools necessary to track and monitor their victim.’ A similar proposal failed in California after the California Coalition Against Sexual Assault warned, ‘from this information, a third party, such as a sexual predator, could stalk and/or harm victims.’ Privacy advocates, cybersecurity experts, and domestic violence advocacy groups urge you to vote no on Question 1.” HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S the American Academy of Pediatrics. DPH developed town-bytown health metrics to guide school districts on whether to be fully in-person, hybrid or remote, based on three weeks of community-wide data. DPH has also made available rapid response mobile testing for any school that experiences a COVID cluster. To help districts bring their children back to school, Governor Charlie Baker allocated nearly $1 billion to municipalities and school districts, through formula distributions of COVID Relief Funds and targeted grants, providing students with access to computers and connectivity. In collaboration with legislative leaders, the Administration has committed to increasing Chapter 70 school aid – adjusting for infl ation and enrollment – to ensure stable funding even in this challenging economic and fi scal climate.

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 October 5-9, the House met for a total of 16 minutes while the Senate met for a total of two hours and 30 minutes. THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Mon.

I would like to create some type of online memorial for her so family and friends can express their condolences and share their stories. What can you tell me about making an online memorial for my mom? Grieving Daughter Dear Grieving, I’m very sorry for your loss. Creating an online memorial for your mom is a great idea and one that’s become increasingly popular in the age of COVID. Thousands of families have created them for their departed loved ones, especially those who didn’t have a proper funeral because of the pandemic. Here’s what you should know. What is an Online Memorial? An online memorial is a website created for a deceased person that provides a central location where their family and friends can visit to share stories, fond memories, photographs, comfort one another and grieve. The memorial can remain online for life, or a specifi c period of time, allowing people to visit and contribute any time in the privacy of their own space. Online memorials started popping up on the Internet in the late 1990s but were created primarily for people who were well known. But now, these sites are for anyone who wants to pay tribute to their departed family member or friend and ensure they will be remembered. Content typically posted on an online memorial includes a biography, pictures and stories from family and friends, timelines of key events in their life, along with favorite music and even videos. Another common feature is an online guestbook where visitors sign their names and write tributes to the departed. Online memorials can also direct visitors to the departed person’s favorite charity or cause to make a donation, as an alternative to sending funeral fl owers. Some online memorial sites today even off er virtual funeral/event capabilities as a replacement for an in-person funeral. They’ll help you get the word out by offering invitations and RSVP tracking. Top Online Memorials To make an online memorial there are a wide variety of websites available that make it easier than ever to create a thoughtful, personalized profi le for your mom to celebrate and honor her life, and the process of creating it can be very satisfying. You also need to know that some online memorial sites are completely free to use, while others off er a free and a paid version that provides additional features. Some of the best sites that offer both free and paid options are MyKeeper.com (free or $75) and iLasting.com (free or $49/ year or $99 for a lifetime membership). Or, if you’re interested in one that’s completely free to use, some top options are GatheringUs.com (they do charge for virtual events), Memories. net, InMemori.com and WeRemember.com. Memorialize Facebook If your mom used Facebook, you can also turn her profile into a memorialized account for free when you show proof of death. This option will let your mom’s family and friends share stories, photos or memories to celebrate her life, with the word “Remembering” shown next to her name. Once her account is memorialized, the content she shared is still visible on Facebook to the audience it was originally shared with, however, her profi le will not show up in public spaces such as people she may know, ads or birthday reminders. In addition, you can also request a Look Back video, which is a short video created by Facebook highlighting your mom’s pictures and most liked status messages. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O. Box 5443, Norman, OK 73070, or visit SavvySenior.org. Jim Miller is a contributor to the NBC Today show and author of “The Savvy Senior” book.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 MassFiscal weighs in on governor’s $45.5B budget proposal T he Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance recently responded to Governor Charlie Baker’s $45.5 billion revised state budget, which calls for more spending than his preCOVID budget released in January. Despite the increase in spending, the new budget anticipates less tax money being collected by the state than in January. To cover this gap, the Governor’s budget spends approximately $1.35 billion of the state’s $3.5 billion “rainy-day” fund, leaving the balance at around $2.2 billion at the end of the year. “Governor Baker was right to propose the state draw on the ‘rainy day’ fund to pay for state spending during a once in a generation crisis. However, without reducing state spending, the state continues heading in the wrong direction. Taxpayers would be more willing to see their savings be spent if it included a reduction in state government spending,” said Paul Craney, spokesman for the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance. Massachusetts remains operating under pandemic-related executive orders, originally promulgated in March, that have shut down or limited economic activity around the state. After setting records for highest unemployment in the country over the summer, the Commonwealth continues to be among the states with the highest unemployment and its economy remains severely distressed. Despite this, the Baker administration proposed raising taxes on popular services like Uber and Lyft and further squeeze struggling businesses by implementing an immediate collection of the sales tax and increased the level of state government spending. “In this pandemic, few industries have been hit harder than ride sharing services and retail businesses. To then decide that their pain can be best addressed with a tax increase, and accelerated tax collections, shows a tone JOIN OUR TEAM “We seek a quality box truck driver and mover for vending equipment.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, OCTOBER 16, 2020 Page 17 LOAN | FROM Page 1 chusetts Clean Water Trust announcement. Construction also includes stormwater and wastewater pump station improvements, cured-in-place pipe lining, sewer spot repairs, replacements, new sewer lines, cleaning and additional wastewater metering. Rystrom said the level of loan forgiveness the City of Revere receives each year varies depending on the specifi c details of the Department of Environmental Protection’s state revolving fund loan program. In September, the City Council approved loan orders for phases 11 and 12 of the project. The work is required through a consent decree entered into by the City of Revere in 2011 following an enforcement action taken by the Department of Justice and federal Department of Environmental Protection along with the state DEP. The issues were primarily related to sanitary sewer overfl ows and illicit discharge detection and elimination causing public health issues in the city, according to Bob Button, a vice president with the engineering fi rm of CDM Smith. The $6.7 million Phase 11 loan approval is for a further construction project, while the $1.3 million for the Phase 12 investigations project includes funding for the further investigation of the condition and operation of the city’s sanitary sewer and storm water system. Rystrom said that DEP guidelines for loan forgiveness are available for construction loans, but not planning loans, so the Phase 11 construction project could be eligible for future loan forgiveness, but not the Phase 12 investigations phase.                     KITCHEN CABINETS To Look Like New 508-840-0501 FURNITURE STRIP & FINISH                                                                                   Gina S Soldano REALTOR® ABR®, AHWD, e-PRO®, GREEN, MRP®, PSA®, SFR®, SRES®, SRS® Broker/Associate Millennium Real Estate 291 Ferry Street, Everett, MA 02149 (857) 272-4270 Gina.Soldano@era.com gsoldanorealtor.com AAA Service • Lockouts Trespass Towing • Roadside Service Junk Car Removal 617-387-6877 26 Garvey St., Everett MDPU 28003 ICCMC 251976 We follow Social Distancing Guidelines!
