The City Council has about three weeks to approve the new map for the city, with a deadline of Dec. 15 set by the state. At last Monday night’s meeting with the council; Revere Director of Innovation Rueben Kantor laid out the map recommended by the city’s redistricting committee. With the city seeing 20 percent growth over the past decade, the biggest growth was in Ward 2. To keep the city’s six wards approximately the same size, Kantor said Ward 2 will be losing some area, while Ward 6, which had the slowest growth, will be CENSUS | SEE Page 17 An end date for ash landfill? DEP Commissioner says his agency won’t allow future expansion at Saugus site By Mark E. Vogler S tate Department of Environmental Protection (MassDEP) Commissioner Martin Suuberg says WIN Waste Innovations won’t be able to expand the ash landfill near its trash-to-energy incinerator in Saugus under current regulations. In a letter this week to state Rep. Jeff rey Turco (D-Winthrop), Commissioner Suuberg noted that his agency’s opposition to future expansion of the landfi ll is based on its location within an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC). “While an applicant is free to propose a site assignment modifi cation, and MassDEP will review the information submitted, based upon the information presently before MassDEP, the facility fails to meet the necessary site suitability criteria to allow for expansion within the ACEC and therefore would not receive a positive site suitability determination,” Suuberg wrote Turco in a letter dated Nov. 16. “Without a positive site suitability determination from MassDEP, a proposal to amend the facility’s site assignment to allow for vertical expansion would not advance to the Saugus Board of Health for consideration,” the commissioner said. WIN Waste Innovations Vice President of Environmental Affairs James Connolly issued a brief statement when contacted yesterday. “The DEP’s letter concerns procedural steps that any proposal involving expansion would need to follow, including a lengthy review by both the town and state,” Connolly said.

Polystyrene is based on styrene, a neurotoxin and probable carcinogen based on benzene. Styrene leaching increases with temperature and with certain foods. Other risks include synthetic chemical additives, such as colorants. Polystyrene also poses a significant environmental hazard. The foam form is often mistaken as food by both domesticated and wild animals. Birds may also use foam for nesting material. Untold numbers of animals die per year by ingesting polystyrene and other plastic items.

Once microplastics enter our oceans, they will stay there virtually forever, because they persist, and their removal is not possible. As Revere is a coastal community, this is incredibly concerning. The bulky foam form is not accepted in curbside recycling programs in Massachusetts (and most other states). The reason for this is because foam is 95% air and often contaminated with food residue; recycling is impractical. “It is for all these reasons and more that I am so proud this ordinance is now in place in Revere,” said Giannino. “This is the last major ordinance I will have presented and passed as a City Councilor and another accomplishment in a series of environmental motions Councilor McKenna, and I have worked on together.” State Rep./Councilor-at-Large Jessica Giannino (right) and Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna “Sounds of Christmas” Concert Returns in Revere M usic Director Robert Lehmann and The North Shore Philharmonic Orchestra will return to St. Anthony’s Church on Sunday, December 5 at 4 p.m. for the Robert A.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Page 3 State Senate candidate Lydia Edwards endorsed by Democratic Socialists of America & Our Revolution Advocate Staff Report B oston City Councilor Lydia Edwards, a candidate for Revere’s State Senate district, has secured far-left endorsements in past political campaigns. As an elected offi cial, Edwards has been endorsed by the Democratic Socialists of America (DSA), the largest socialist organization in the United States. Revere man charged with rape, held without bail By Christopher Roberson The Boston DSA chapter, which has been active for more than 30 years, has provided Edwards with signifi cant support in past political races, including volunteers and community door knocking. The purpose of DSA is to create a mass democratic socialist movement in the country with the goal of society’s transformation from capitalism to socialism. DSA espouses various leftist political philosophies, including “defunding the police/refunding communities” and “single-payer Medicare for All,” according to its website. Edwards has also been endorsed by Our Revolution, an organization that has advocated, among other things, for the defunding of police departments in Massachusetts. She has spoken in support of an “alternative police mechanism that is unarmed” and lauded Boston’s Ballot 1 initiative that will give the Boston City Council authority to cut the police budget. L uis Salinas-Ibanez, 33, of Revere, is being held without bail after allegedly sexually assaulting a woman inside an MBTA train station. According to Suff olk County District Attorney Rachael Rollins, SalinasIbanez has been charged with rape and was arraigned in the Central Division of Boston Municipal Court on November 15. During the arraignment, Assistant District Attorney Daniel Nucci said live video surveillance from November 12 showed the woman, whose identity has not been released, lying down on the fl oor of State Street Station to sleep at approximately 10:30 p.m. Allegedly, minutes later Salinas-Ibanez began to sexually assault the woman, and this happened “multiple times” over the course ASSAULT | SEE Page 5 Lawrence A.

According to police, at approximately 1:10 p.m. on November 10, the trooper and a rookie trooper stopped an Audi operated by Juan Pineda, 21, of Lynn. Pineda was reportedly wanted for a prior incident in which he failed to stop for police. One of the troopers ordered Pineda to get out of the car; however, he refused to comply. He then allegedly hit the accelerator and took a run at the troopers. According to police, “one or both” troopers opened fi re on Pineda’s vehicle. Pineda was not injured during the exchange. After fl eeing the scene, Pineda was stopped approximately a half-mile away on Arlington Street. According to police, Pineda got out of the car and attempted to fl ee on foot. However, Revere Police Offi cers were waiting for him and took him into custody. Both troopers were taken to a Boston hospital for evaluation. Pineda is facing charges including assault and battery with a dangerous weapon and having an outstanding warrant. Pineda was arraigned in Chelsea District Court.

Page 4 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 School Committee approves agreement for new contract with RTA By Adam Swift T he School Committee approved an agreement for a new three-year contract with the 675-member Revere Teachers Association (RTA) at its meeting last Tuesday. The new contract will see modest cost of living raises for union members over the next three years, as well as additional personal time and increases in longevity pay. School Committee Member Carol Tye, who has been involved in some manner in every teacher contract negotiation since 1967, offi cially announced the agreement at the meeting. “The fi rst contract came in 1967 and since then, every single one of them has had a huge problem with funding because the city, being not a very rich one, is never able to pay our employees as much money as they deserve and that we would like to give them,” said Tye. “But we have come up with a compromise, and the essence of negotiation is compromise.” The Cost-Of-Living Adjustment (COLA) is 2.5 percent for the fi rst year of the contract, 2.5 percent for the second year and two percent for the third year. “The school department and the teachers association worked on professional development language and stipends for vari   Attorneys at Law                   14 Norwood St., Everett, MA 02149 Phone: (617) 387-4900 Fax: (617) 381-1755  John Mackey, Esq. * Katherine M.

There was also work on grievance language that Tye said could create a speedier and less complicated procedure for grievances. She said the agreement also addresses new grading language and online courses. “We also gave them additional personal leave,” said Tye. “As you know, our school system is open much longer than the bare minimum required by the state of 180 days. Our kids go to school for 182 days, and there are other days on which our teachers report.” The contract also has incentives to reward those teachers who have been in the system for 10 years or more. “Recognizing that many of our staff have devoted their lives to teaching in Revere, and many more plan to spend their professional lives in Revere, we made adjustments to the existing longevity schedule, ranging from 10 years at $2,000 to 35 years at $6,000,” said Tye, adding that the sick leave buyback was also increased. The agreement also increased the number of days people can take for bereavement and other CAROL TYE School Committee Member leave as necessary, and it gives the superintendent the discretion in extraordinary cases to allow more leave than is prescribed in the agreement. “It was very difficult, and it should be, because there should be an exchange of ideas,” said Tye. “I’ve been in on the fi rst contract that came out in 1967, and I’ve been in on every one ever since, and none of them have ever been easy.” Barbara Wallace, the acting RTA president, said the union was pleased with the vote. “The Revere Teachers Association is pleased that the School Committee voted [Tuesday night] to ratify our MOA [Memorandum of Agreement],” said Wallace. “Our teachers of this city have been working without a contract since June of this year. We are glad this is settled, so that we can focus on caring for and educating the students of Revere Public Schools.”

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Page 5 Gone to Pot: Medicinal marijuana sellers seek Park & Fly permit over growing space By Adam Swift T he owners of the long-proposed medical marijuana facility on Railroad Street are asking for a change in their special permit to allow for a park and fl y parking lot on a portion of its property. Attorney Lawrence Simeone, Jr., representing owners Wellness Connection and Gunnar Holdings, said that due to changes in the marijuana industry, his clients are no longer proposing to construct a large cultivation building. Instead, he said they are looking to operate a 220 space park and fl y parking facility on the property at 44 Railroad St. The City Council approved the original site plan for the medical marijuana facility at 30-44 Railroad St. in 2015. “These modifications and changes to the original site plan emanate out of industrial changes to the way business is done today as opposed to the way we thought it was going to happen in 2015,” said Simeone. “It has made it more economical for us to make these changes while moving forward with the business for which the special permit was granted.” In the original site plan, there ASSAULT | FROM Page 3 of the next two hours. The live video feed caught the attention of an MBTA employee, who immediately called the Transit Police. According to Transit Police, the woman told offi cers that she was “woken multiple times to a male pulling down her pants and touching her without consent.” The woman was taken for treatment at Massachusetts General Hospital. The day after the incident, a photo of Salinas-Ibanez was released to the public. Within two hours, Transit Police were able to make a positive identification. Police found Salinas-Ibanez at his workplace at 12:19 p.m. on November 13 and took him into custody. Salinas-Ibanez will be back in court on November 22 for a dangerousness hearing. “I’m so grateful to everyone who acted swiftly to protect this sleeping victim of sexual assault and to hold the assailant accountable. The MBTA employee who witnessed the assault immediately called for help, allowing for a swift response from responding offi cers,” said Rollins. “Further investigation and the caring and dedicated services of law enforcement professionals, including people working were 88 parking spots for the marijuana business. With a nearly 40,000-square-foot cultivation building out of the picture, Simeone said his applicants are looking to reduce the number of parking spaces to 39 for the business. “That would leave us the remaining area for the operation of a park and fl y, which ends up being 220 spaces,” said Simeone. An attorney representing several businesses abutting the property, Durant Performance Coatings and Burbank Realty Trust, said the project could interfere with an easement his clients have to access their properties. “Just as a general matter, the park and fl y is currently operating on the site and it has been for months without a permit,” said Bradley Croft of Boston-based law fi rm Ruberto, Israel & Weiner. Croft said there are vehicles that are parking on his clients’ properties and causing obstructions. “The Licensing Commission has not issued a license for parking lot operations at that location, because the business has not applied for a parking lot license,” said Jackie McLaughlin, communications associate for Mayor Brian Arrigo. “However, the business would fi rst need to get a special in my offi ce, notifi ed the community of an unknown rapist and the community responded immediately. Brave members of the public shared what they knew with police and this individual was placed under arrest and removed from the community. The victim in this case was sleeping when she was sexualpermit before they could apply for a license, so the process (absent the allegations of operating without a permit) is being followed.” The License Commission has not investigated it because they were not made aware of any allegations or complaints about unlicensed operations, McLaughlin added. “Because of this, they are not sure if the attorney is correct or not,” said McLaughlin. “If we had received the complaint, the Licensing Board would have investigated with the proper channels – in this case, parking lots are licensed under MGL Chapter 148, so they would have reached out to the Revere Fire Department.” Ward 1 Councillor Joanne McKenna said the park and fl y would be in her ward, and that she currently doesn’t have an issue with it. “I understand that there are a couple of businesses down there, but I just don’t see a problem with it,” McKenna said. “It’s hidden from the public, you can only see it from Winthrop Avenue, and it’s a big lot. If it’s going to give revenue to the city, I’m in favor of it.” The council’s zoning subcommittee will take up the issue at its Nov. 22 meeting. ly assaulted.

Page 6 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 ~ OP-ED ~ Coming Infrastructure Relief W ith the passage of the federal Infrastructure Investment and Jobs Act last week, the future of U.S. infrastructure—both physical and digital—has become a lot brighter. Massachusetts alone is expected to receive over $9 billion to make road and bridge repairs, improve the MBTA, and expand access to broadband Internet service. While we should celebrate this hard-won victory at the federal level, the diffi cult state level work is about to commence. The most critical decisions— to what programs the money will go, when infrastructure improvements begin, and who will most benefi t—have not yet been made. State leaders in western Massachusetts and the Cape have already started lobbying for large portions of the funds to be allocated to their districts. Now more than ever, we, too, need a senator with a strong understanding of infrastructure, fi nance, and technology to ensure that our District is not overlooked during this crucial allocation process. People often assume that the greatest infrastructure needs are in rural or inland settings where lack of population 8 Norwood St. Everett (617) 387-9810 HOURS: Open Daily at 4:00 PM Don’t Forget to Book your Holiday Party Early!

BAKED HADDOCK Friday Special GRILLED RIB EYE Saturday Special Includes 2 Sides Includes 2 Sides ~ www.eight10barandgrille.com ~ density means there are fewer train lines and digital services, but this is not always the case. Our District—as coastal and urban as any place in Massachusetts—faces some of the largest infrastructure challenges in the Commonwealth. Let’s start with the T. As a daily user of the Blue Line, I understand the importance of regular and reliable T-service, including early-morning and late-night service. I support using part of the $2.5 billion from the federal infrastructure bill to expand T accessibility and stop restrictions on T hours, as such restrictions disproportionately impact our District’s workers. Additional funds should be used to finance innovative technological solutions to solve long-standing transportation problems. To start, we must upgrade and spread awareness of the MBTA’s apps so that residents can access MBTA schedules, delays, and digital payment options on the fl y from their phones. Additionally, MassDOT should work with municipalities to roll out “smart parking” tools that reduce traffi c and allow drivers to receive real-time updates of parking availabilities near their location. More than $5.5 billion has been set aside for upgrades to our roads, bridges, and airports. Since 2011, commute times in the Commonwealth have increased by 10.9%, and each driver pays an average of $620 per year in costs due to driving on roads in need of repair (e.g., blown tires, damaged rims and windshields). We must fi ght to ensure that a signifi cant chunk of the allocated funds goes toward improving the roads in our district to ease the congestion that disproportionately costs our residents time, money, and their health, due to vehicle emissions. Additionally, most of the $244 million for airport infrastructure should be used to reduce the air and noise pollution emitted by Logan Airport. Our residents have suffered from broken windows and higher rates of respiratory illnesses for far too long. Massachusetts can also expect to receive $100 million for the purpose of expanding access to broadband Internet services. An estimated 11% of households in Massachusetts do not have an Internet subscription, but that percentage rises to 25% in some neighborhoods in our district. Now more than ever, Massachusetts residents need Internet service that not only connects them to a search engine, but also can support video communication. Reliable Internet service helps students connect to virtual classes, people fi nd and apply for new jobs, healthcare professionals more easily treat their patients, and seniors maintain critical social ties amidst the country’s loneliness epidemic. We must make sure that our District is not overlooked, as it is clear there is great need here. Like many others, I want to make Massachusetts the fi rst state in the United States to provide universal, aff ordable, and reliable broadband Internet to all residents. In order to do that, state officials must estimate the total cost associated with this policy and determine if the new federal funding will be enough to cover it. If not, additional state funds should be deployed. Finally, our District is particularly vulnerable to infrastructure problems arising from climate change. While the Act grants Massachusetts funding for clean drinking water initiatives, cybersecurity, and even fi ghting wildfi res, there is no mention of, or funding set aside for, coastal fl ooding, erosion, and storm surge issues. The latter issues present great risks to the safety and livelihoods of our residents. We must make clear to state offi cials that road and bridge improvements are less eff ective when they do not include companion improvements to climate resilience infrastructure. Without strong sea walls, even the best built coastal road will face signifi cant damage. The federal infrastructure bill is a real asset to Massachusetts as we recover from the Covid-19 pandemic and adapt to the 21st century world, but the cities in our District cannot be overlooked. My unique background in fi nance, technology and education assures that I will have a functional understanding of these issues and best protect our District. Join us in this eff ort. Anthony A.

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Page 7 License Commission issues warning for noise at Cinco de Mayo By Adam Swift O n Wednesday the License Commission issued a warning to a popular neighborhood bar and restaurant on Centennial Avenue for excessive noise and disturbances. However, the commissioners were sympathetic to the manager of Cinco de Mayo and said it seemed as though she was taking the steps necessary to address complaints about the restaurant. “I took over [the restaurant] as manager after my father died, and after COVID, we did our best with the noise because we didn’t want to get a lot of complaints about noise,” said Madeline Rodriguez. Rodriguez noted that she hired a detail officer to help tamp down on complaints and has worked to lower the noise from music at the restaurant. She also said that during weekends she is in the parking lot herself when the business closes at 2 a.m. to try to get everyone off the premises in an orderly manner. Additionally, Rodriguez said she has worked with the DJ to lower the music from the restaurant and is in the beginning stages of a remodel that will likely include additional soundproofi ng for Cinco de Mayo. The restaurant has been open for 15 years, and Rodriguez said she found it odd that the constant complaints have only come to light in the past several months, after her family considered selling the restaurant then changed its mind. “I have no idea why this is going on just recently for the last couple of months,” said Rodriguez. “I have reports here of [complaint] calls on a Monday, and I’m closed on Monday. On a Thursday, I had one call when I was there, and the [detail] offi cer came inside and saw that I had no customers that night and I had no music.” Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky said he lives about 100 yards from the restaurant, and while he can’t hear noise from it, he said, he does get some complaints from neighbors next door and across the street from Cinco de Mayo. Novoselsky said the biggest complaints he gets are about noise and public urination when people are leaving around 2 a.m. “I think you need to be more observant,” he said. “I know there is an issue in the parking lot itself.” Rodriguez said she is out in the parking lot at closing time with onsite security during the weekends to try to take care of those issues. “I’m trying hard to work with my neighbors, and I’m trying my best in controlling the noise the best that I can,” she said. Councillor-at-Large George Rotondo, who lives close to the restaurant on Dehon Street, painted a less rosy picture of the sitWinthrop Public Health Department Issues Warning for Marijuana Laced with Fentanyl WINTHROP -- Public Health Director Meredith Hurley would like to issue a warning for marijuana laced with fentanyl. The Connecticut State Lab recently confi rmed the presence of fentanyl in a marijuana sample after numerous people who reported only using marijuana overdosed. Fentanyl is a synthetic opioid typically used to treat severe pain. According to the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention, fentanyl is 50 to 100 times more potent than morphine, and has been linked to overdoses and death. "Fentanyl is often disguised with other drugs, and people may not know that they are consuming it," Director Hurley said. "With the recent discovery of marijuana laced with fentanyl in Connecticut, it is more important than ever to be vigilant and to know the signs of an overdose. Remember, always dial 911 in the event of an overdose." The Winthrop Public Health Department wishes to share the following symptoms, which may be signs of an overdose: • Small, constricted pupils • Falling asleep or loss of consciousness • Slow, shallow breathing • Choking or gurgling sounds • A limp body • Pale, blue or cold skin If residents notice someone that they believe is experiencing an overdose, they should immediately dial 911 and administer Narcan if available. Narcan, otherwise known as Naloxone, is an opioid antagonist that can reverse the eff ects of a potentially fatal overdose by displacing the drug from the receptors in the brain. Narcan is available for purchase without a prescription at most pharmacies, and health insurance can be used to off set the cost. uation. He said he has been outside at the restaurant at closing time and not seen Rodriguez, but that he has seen patrons bringing bottles out from the restaurant into the parking lot. “There have been people shooting up in cars in your parking lot that had to get Narcan, and I’ve given the Narcan, and they refused medical care,” said Rotondo. The noise and music has kept up his family and his neighbors, Rotondo said. “I can tell you that I am getting sick of it, and this is a huge problem,” he said. “It’s not just me; people in the neighborhood are upset about this.” While Rotondo pointed out some major issues, several people also spoke up supporting Rodriguez and noted that Cinco de Mayo is an integral part of the neighborhood and community. License Commissioner Linda Guinasso said the commission needs to address issues that aff ect the quality of life of residents, but added that the issues brought up at Cinco de Mayo are easily fi xed. “You shouldn’t hear any music when you step outside, and I think you are working in the right direction, but the neighbors do have to be considered,” said Guinasso. Commission Chair Robert Selevitch agreed and said that the restaurant would be issued a warning with no further action taken at this time. “If the situation gets worse or continues, you will have to come back in here, and the next time it won’t be a slap on the wrist,” said Selevitch.                                                                  

Yup. A lot of Malden and Greater Boston League (GBL) fans became newly-minted Braves fans in 1999 when Atlanta won the National League pennant and then squared off against the New York Yankees and guys like Derek Jeter and The Rocket, Roger Clemens. The new-found support of Atlanta in '99 was because of the fact they had a rookie right-handed pitcher on their roster who had played a major role in the team's success that season. That pitcher would be Malden High Hall of Famer Kevin McGlinchy, a 1995 Golden Tornado graduate who had a brief, but impressive Major League professional baseball career after being drafted by Atlanta in 1995. McGlinchy set a then Atlanta franchise record for mound appearances by a rookie — which still stands— as he appeared in 68 games in 1999. He usually pitched the 6th or more often, 7th inning, in front of future Hall of Famers, Greg Maddux, Mike Glavine and John Smoltz. The closer was usually Mark Wohlers. I was fortunate enough to have coached McGlinchy at Malden High from 1992-95 where he ended up winning 14 games and leading the GBL in hitting twice, including a blistering, record-setting.581 his senior year. McGlinchy said last week he had been closely following the World Series this year and was pleased to see his former team win it all for the fi rst time since 1995. He still had some links to this team, 22 years later, including the Manager Brian Snitker, who was McGlinchy's very fi rst coach in the pros, way back in ShortSeason Single-A Ball at the minor league outpost of Danville, Virginia. "He (Snitker) always treated me great and I was very happy to see him win that ring," McGlinchy said. **** Early predictions on the GBL Boys Basketball race Like the song goes, "Same As it Ever Was".... Everett and Lynn English are expected to be the leaders in the GBL Boys Basketball standings when winter season starts. It is not only right The last time the Atlanta Braves were in the World Series, Malden High 1995 grad Kevin McGlinchy was on the mound, in 1999. around the corner; it is right in our face, with preseason tryouts starting on Monday, Novermber 29.

But to suggest he was a racist with no proof is disingenuous. It’s also disingenuous to suggest that Columbus statues are rooted in racism. Some issues to consider when discussing this matter are: Eleven Italians were lynched in New Orleans in 1891 while thousands cheered on what was the largest mass lynching in US history. To fi ght the oppression, Italian Americans promoted Columbus Day. Columbus was a progressive. Claims that the statues symbolize racism are simply not true. Humanity was separated for 10,000 years until his Atlantic voyage to America, creating a United world as we know it. Columbus was a dreamer not a slave owner. What the HRC should be doing besides more research, is celebrating his legacy. Columbus Day is not about the discovery of America it’s about providing a safe have for immigrants withing to leave oppressed foreign governments where human life has no value. Revere should be in the forefront of stopping this ridiculous dialogue of changing Columbus Day to Indigenous Day. My suggestion is fi nd another day for Indigenous Day. Sincerely, Toni Esposito

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Page 13 Baker refiles legislation to improve roadway safety and combat impaired driving T he Baker-Polito Administration recently refi led legislation to improve safety on the Commonwealth’s roadways and combat drug-impaired driving. This proposal would update road safety laws by implementing uniform standards and promoting proven strategies to reduce motor vehicle crashes, and it implements recommendations made by the Special Commission on Operating Under the Infl uence and Impaired Driving. The refiled legislation – An Act implementing the recommendations of the Special Commission on Operating Under the Infl uence and Impaired Driving, which is known as the “Trooper Thomas Clardy Law” – honors Massachusetts State Trooper Thomas L. Clardy. On March 16, 2016, Clardy was conducting a traffi c stop on the Massachusetts Turnpike in Charlton when his parked cruiser was hit by a speeding motorist who swerved across three lanes of traffi c. Tetrahydrocannabinol (THC), the psychoactive ingredient in marijuana, was detected in the motorist’s blood. This preventable crime resulted in Clardy’s tragic and untimely death at the age of 44. He was an 11-year member of the State Police and a United States Marine Corps veteran. He was survived by his wife and six children. The bill’s refi ling this week coincides with the twoyear mark since the conviction of the driver in the case. “This legislation aims to make the Commonwealth’s roads safer and save lives, and we are grateful to the Clardy family for off ering their family’s name and support for this legislation, which will help us avoid impaired driving incidents in the future,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “This bill will provide law enforcement offi cers with more rigorous drug detection training and will strengthen the legal process by authorizing the courts to acknowledge that the active ingredient in marijuana can and does impair motorists. The bill draws on thoughtful recommendations from a broad cross-section of stakeholders, and we look forward to working with our legislative colleagues to pass this bill and make our roads safer.” “Our administration is refiling this legislation as part of our steadfast commitment to safeguarding our roadways and protecting the people of the Commonwealth from preventable crimes,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “With the continued implementation of adult-use marijuana in the Commonwealth, it is vital that we continue to focus on eff orts to both combat drugged driving and raise awareness about the dangers of operating while under the infl uence.” First fi led in 2019, this legislation is based on recommendations issued by a Special Commission on Operating Under the Infl uence and Impaired Driving, which was created as part of the 2017 law legalizing adultuse marijuana, to develop a series of recommendations to mitigate the negative impacts of increased marijuana use in Massachusetts, including the anticipated increase of impaired driving. The Special Commission included a diverse cadre of experts in policing, prosecution, the criminal defense bar, medicine, toxicology and civil liberties. The Special Commission’s report outlined recommendations that require legislative changes and promote consistency with state law on alcohol use and driving. “Our family has been profoundly impacted by the tragic loss of my loving husband. Our children lost their hero, a man who had love for his family and an unquenchable love for life,” said Clardy’s widow, Reisa Clardy. “We wholeheartedly support the implementation of these critical measures to improve public safety in the hope of sparing other families from our sorrow and preventing the heartbreak caused by a driver’s decision to get behind the wheel when under the influence of drugs.” “It’s simple: you can’t drive safely when you are impaired. This legislation will improve community safety and advance good criminal justice policy by ensuring our ability to off er the public the same protections whether a driver is under the infl uence of alcohol or drugs,” said Secretary of Public Safety and Security Terrence Reidy. “The provisions of this legislation will be important tools to law enforcement offi cers to enhance interdiction of drugged drivers and refl ect a necessary evolution in our criminal laws to recognize and address the signifi cant dangers of drivers who are under the infl uence of narcotics,” said Massachusetts State Police Superintendent Colonel Christopher Mason. “It is imperative that police have the training and tools necessary to effectively combat drugged driving,” said Chelsea Police Chief Brian Kyes, who is president of the Massachusetts Major City Chiefs Association. “This legislation will equip law enforcement with drug recognition experts to address the dangers of impaired driving and to improve road safety across Massachusetts.” “Life can change in the blink of an eye and, because of impaired drivers, it often tragically does. To prevent these tragedies, we must do everything we can to keep impaired drivers off the roads,” said Worcester County District Attorney Joseph D. Early, Jr. “This legislation is a great step to making our roads safer for all our loved ones who use them. It will better address the issue of impairment in the courtroom and, ideally, avert a tragedy before it happens.” “AAA Northeast applauds the Baker-Polito Administration for fi ling this legislation, which would make the roadways of the Commonwealth much safer. Impaired driving accounts for roughly a third of roadway deaths across the county, and the numbers are climbing. We also welcome the opportunity to honor Trooper Thomas Clardy and his family in the naming of this bill,” said AAA Northeast Director of Public and Government Aff airs Mary Maguire. “The work of the Special Commission on Operating Under the Infl uence and Impaired Driving started with the basic premise that you don’t, under any circumstances, drive better when you are impaired,” said Cannabis Control Commission Executive Director Shawn Collins, who is the Chair of the Special Commission. “The Baker-Polito Administration’s legislation seeks safer roadways throughout the Commonwealth by implementing the Special Commission’s fi ndings and empowering the public with expanded resources to prevent the risks of driving under the infl uence of any intoxicating substance.” The Special Commission’s 2019 report contained a series of recommendations, many of them unanimous among the experts and stakeholders, to improve how Massachusetts combats operating under the infl uence. The proposed adjustments encompass the entire process leading up to, during and following a motor vehicle stop for suspected driving under the infl uence. Many of the Special Commission’s 19 recommendations require legislative changes, which are refl ected in the Trooper Thomas Clardy Law. The proposed legislative changes in this refi led bill include: • Adopting implied consent laws to suspend the driver’s licenses of arrested motorists who refuse to cooperate in chemical testing for drugs, as existing law has long required for arrested motorists who refuse breath testing for alcohol • Adopting a statute authorizing courts to take judicial notice that ingesting THC, the active chemical in marijuana, can and does impair motorists • Directing the Municipal Police Training Committee (MPTC) to expand the training of drug recognition experts, and allowing them to testify as expert witnesses in civil and criminal cases • Prohibiting drivers from having loose or unsealed packages of marijuana in the driver’s compartment of a vehicle, under the same provision of the motor vehicle code that has long prohibited driving with open containers of alcohol • Recognizing the eff ectiveness of the horizontal gaze nystagmus test, which has been shown through scientific research to be the single most reliable fi eld sobriety test • Empowering police offi cers to seek electronic search warrants for evidence of chemical intoxication, as is the practice in over 30 other states; any blood draw would have to be authorized by a neutral magistrate after a showing of probable cause, and would be performed by a doctor, nurse or other appropriate medical staff at a health care facility. • Developing educational materials and programming on drug impairment to share with trial court judges Recent data released by the National Highway Traffi c Safety Administration (NHTSA) showed that traffic fatalities have reached a 15-year high in the fi rst six months of 2021. More than 20,000 people have died in motor vehicle crashes so far this year. The NHTSA attributes this alarming trend to an increase in risky behavior, including driving under the infl uence of drugs and alcohol. Indeed, NHTSA’s recent review of fi ve trauma centers, including one in Worcester, Mass., found a signifi cant increase in the prevalence of drugs detected in seriously and fatally injured drivers, with 56 percent testing positive for at least one impairing substance, up from 50.8 percent before the public health emergency. According to the U.S. Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC), THC, marijuana’s principal active ingredient, impairs coordination, judgment and balance – the skills every operator needs to drive safely. A February 2020 survey conducted by Mothers Against Drunk Driving found that one in eight adults (12 percent) admitted to driving within two hours of consuming marijuana. Public Safety Alert Stay Connected: Massachusetts Residents Encouraged to Plan Ahead For the Shutdown of 3G Cellular Networks The federal government and cellular providers have announced that older phones and devices will lose call and data functions, including the ability to contact 911 T he Executive Offi ce of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS) is supporting eff orts by carriers and the federal government to raise awareness about plans by major cellular providers to phase out 3G coverage beginning in early 2022. EOPSS urges Massachusetts residents and businesses who rely on older technology to plan for the potential loss of cell and data functions, specifi cally 911 service availability. Mobile carriers are retiring 3G technology to add bandwidth for faster and more reliable network services, such as 5G. The decommissioning eff ort is underway, and 3G coverage is already being phased out as the fi nal sunset dates approach. If a mobile phone is more than several years old (e.g., older than an iPhone 6 or Samsung Galaxy S4), the phone may require an upgrade before mobile carriers eliminate 3G technology. For older phones and devices, the loss of 3G coverage will impact call and data service, inCELLULAR | SEE Page 20

Page 14 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Mass. opioid-related overdose death rate up one percent in first nine months of 2021 O pioid-related overdose deaths in Massachusetts rose slightly in the first nine months of 2021 compared to the same time last year, according to preliminary data from the Massachusetts Department of Public Health (DPH), according to a November 10, 2021, DPH press release. In the first nine months of the year, there were 1,613 confi rmed and estimated opioid-related overdose deaths, approximately 21 more deaths than in the fi rst nine months of 2020, or a one percent increase. Data released earlier this year noted that Black non-Hispanic men made up the largest increase in opioid overdose death rates, a fi nding reinforced by the November report, underscoring the importance of the Commonwealth’s continued investments to address this issue with a focus on equity. Throughout the ongoing COVID-19 pandemic and related public health challenges, the Commonwealth has continued to focus on the opioid epidemic, most recently investing over $45 million in federal dollars to support prevention, treatment and recovery programs for vulnerable populations. This includes a combined $19 million for early childhood and youth substance use prevention, treatment and recovery programs; $9 million for low-threshold access to treatment for people struggling with opioid use disorder; $2.8 million for treatment for people experiencing homelessness; and a combined $11.3 million to support transitional and permanent housing programs for adults, families and young adults in treatment and recovery from substance abuse disorder. “The COVID-19 pandemic has exacerbated substance misuse not only in Massachusetts, but across the country. Our Administration has continued to tackle both the opioid epidemic and the COVID-19 pandemic with a focus on equity,” said Governor Charlie Baker. “Since 2015, we have more than doubled spending on substance misuse programs across state government, boosted the number of treatment beds, and signed two landmark laws to respond to this public health crisis. We continue to invest in treatment, support, intervention, and education programs, primarily for residents experiencing the highest burden of this epidemic.” “We remain committed to increasing resources to battle the opioid crisis amid the challenges presented by the COVID-19 pandemic over the past 20 months, particularly for those struggling with substance use and mental health disorders,” said Lt. Governor Karyn Polito. “We will continue to work collaboratively with all stakeholders to ensure residents struggling with addiction have access to necessary supports.” The Baker-Polito Administration has continued to build on its work and funding to address this crisis, more than doubling investments in this area since 2015. The Fiscal Year (FY) 2022 budget includes a total investment of $408 million across various state agencies to address substance misuse, a 22 percent increase over last fi scal year and an increase of $288.8 million (242%) since FY15. Since the early days of the pandemic, the Administration has continued to expand overdose-targeted initiatives to ensure uninterrupted substance abuse treatment/support. DPH has distributed more than 124,000 naloxone kits to opioid treatment programs, community health centers, hospital emergency departments and houses of correction since March 2020. With a blanket exception from the federal Substance Abuse and Mental Health Services Administration (SAMHSA), 35 percent of Massachusetts opioid treatment program patients have been receiving take-home doses of Medication for Opioid Use Disorder (MOUD) as of September 2021, compared to the pre-pandemic average of 16 percent in December 2019. Massachusetts is among the states with the smallest increases nationwide in all drug overdose deaths between March 2020 and March 2021, according to the latest preliminary data from the Centers for Disease Control and Prevention (CDC). The data show that while drug overdose deaths surged by 31 percent nationally in that time period, Massachusetts’s increase was in the single digits. “We have seen the impacts of the intersecting COVID-19 pandemic and opioid epidemic on some of our most vulnerable communities,” said Health and Human Services Secretary Marylou Sudders. “As the Commonwealth emerges from the pandemic, we must engage with trusted community-based health care providers to provide culturally responsive support and treatment.” “Prior to the pandemic, opioid-related overdose death rates in Massachusetts had been stable. Unfortunately, the pandemic exacerbated the opioid crisis, particularly in communities of color which have also been disproportionately impacted by COVID-19,” said Acting Public Health Commissioner Margret Cooke. “Our goal is to reverse this troubling trend by continuing to build on our aggressive, data- and equity-based public health approach to prevention, intervention, treatment, and recovery.” Overall, there were 2,106 opioid-related overdose deaths in 2020, a five percent increase over the previous year and just shy of the 2016 peak of 2,110 deaths, according to the latest preliminary data. The 2020 opioid-related overdose death rate of 30.2 per 100,000 people was approximately 1.6 percent lower than in 2016 (30.7 per 100,000), the latest data show. In 2021 the powerful lethal synthetic opioid fentanyl continues to be the main driver of opioid-related overdose deaths in Massachusetts. In the fi rst half of 2021, fentanyl was present in 92 percent of opioid-related deaths where a toxicology report was available, preliminary data show. Cocaine is the next most prevalent drug among opioid-related overdose deaths after fentanyl, present in 52 percent of toxicology reports in the fi rst six months of 2021 – a 13 percent increase over 2020. In 2017 cocaine was present in 39 percent of opioid-related overdose deaths. The rate of heroin or likely heroin present in opioid-related overdose deaths was nine percent and has been declining since 2014. The presence of benzodiazepines, amphetamines and prescription opioids in opioid-related overdose deaths remained stable in the fi rst half of the year, toxicology screens show. The percentage of benzodiazepine has been declining since 2018. In the fi rst half of 2021, males ages 25-34 continued to represent the greatest number of suspected opioid-related incidents treated by Emergency Medical Services (EMS), accounting for 22 percent of opioid-related incidents with a known age and sex. Among the other fi ndings of the latest opioid report: • Between 2019 and 2020, the confirmed opioid-related overdose death rate for white non-Hispanic residents decreased slightly: 33.4 per 100,000 in 2019 to 33.1 per 100,000 in 2020. Meanwhile, the rate for all Black non-Hispanic residents increased 63 percent from 22 to 36 per 100,000. • The confi rmed opioid-related overdose death rate for Asian Pacifi c Islander non-Hispanic residents increased about 27 percent from 2.6 to 3.3 per 100,000 between 2019 and 2020. For Hispanic residents the rate increased over 12 percent from 32 to 36 per 100,000. • In the same time period, the confi rmed opioid-related overdose death rate per 100,000 for Black non-Hispanic, Asian Pacifi c Islander non-Hispanic and Hispanic men increased, while it decreased for white non-Hispanic men. • Between 2019 and 2020, the opioid-related overdose death rate among all females increased by 15 percent, from 14 to 16 per 100,000. • In the same time period, the confi rmed opioid-related overdose death rate increased for Black non-Hispanic, Hispanic and white non-Hispanic women: Black non-Hispanic up 32 percent from 12 to 16 per 100,000; Hispanic up 68 percent from eight to 14 per 100,000; White non-Hispanic up eight percent from 17 to 19 per 100,000 • Males comprise 73 percent of all opioid-related overdose deaths occurring in 2020. • In 2020, 50 percent of opioid-related deaths occurred in people who were between 25 and 44 years old; 40 percent were between 45 and 64 years old. Naloxone was administered in 96 percent of acute opioid overdoses during the fi rst six months of 2021. Of all opioid-related EMS incidents in the fi rst half of 2021, 53.1 percent were categorized as acute opioid overdoses. Approximately 469,000 individuals in Massachusetts received prescriptions for Schedule II opioids in the third quarter of 2021, a 44 percent decrease from 841,990 in the fi rst quarter of 2015.

You will be responsible for the remaining 20 percent unless you have supplemental insurance. Here’s a breakdown of how it works. Schedule an Appointment Your fi rst step is to call your doctor or primary care provider and schedule a Medicare required, face-to-face mobility evaluation to determine your need for a power scooter or wheelchair. For you to be eligible, you’ll need to meet all of the following conditions: • Your health condition makes moving around your home very diffi cult, even with the help of a cane, crutch, walker or manual wheelchair. • You have signifi cant problems performing activities of daily living like bathing, dressing, getting in or out of a bed or chair, or using the bathroom. • You are able to safely operate, and get on and off the scooter or wheelchair, or have someone with you who is always available to help you safely use the device. If eligible, your doctor will determine what kind of mobility equipment you’ll need based on your condition, usability in your home, and ability to operate it. It’s also important to know that Medicare coverage is dependent on your needing a scooter or wheelchair in your home. If your claim is based on needing it outside your home, it will be denied as not medically necessary, because the wheelchair or scooter will be considered a leisure item. Where to Buy If your doctor determines you need a power scooter or wheelchair, he or she will fi ll out a written order or prescription. Once you receive it, you’ll need to take it to a Medicare approved supplier within 45 days. To fi nd Medicare approved suppliers in your area, visit Medicare.gov/ medical-equipment-suppliers or call 800-633-4227. There are, however, circumstances where you may need “prior authorization” for certain types of power wheelchairs. In this case, you’ll need permission from Medicare before you can get one. Financial Aid If you have a Medicare supplemental (Medigap) policy, it may pick up some, or all of the 20 percent cost of the scooter or wheelchair that’s not covered by Medicare. If, however, you don’t have supplemental insurance, and can’t aff ord the 20 percent, you may be able to get help through Medicare Savings Programs. Call your local Medicaid offi ce for eligibility information. Or, if you fi nd that you’re not eligible for a Medicare covered scooter or wheelchair, and you can’t afford to purchase one, renting can be a much cheaper short-term solution. Talk to a supplier about this option. For more information about power mobility devices call Medicare at 800-633-4227 or visit Medicare.gov/coverage/ wheelchairs-scooters. Medicare Advantage If you happen to have a Medicare Advantage plan (like an HMO or PPO), you’ll need to call your plan to fi nd out the specific steps you need to take to get a power-wheelchair or scooter. Many Advantage plans have specific suppliers within the plan’s network they’ll require you to use. Send your senior questions to: Savvy Senior, P.O.

Patriots shut down Belmont, 28-0 By Greg Phipps I f any team has a legitimate beef against the newly instituted state high school football playoff system, it’s the Revere Patriots. Coming off an unusual week in which they were idle, the six-win Patriots had nearly two weeks to accept their postseason slight and prepare to battle the Belmont Marauders last Thursday night at Harry Della Russo Stadium. Victory number seven came in convincing fashion as Revere shut down the Belmont off ense and scored four touchdowns to coast to a 28-0 win. The triumph left the Patriots with a 7-2 overall record heading into the annual Thanksgiving Day clash against Winthrop. Due to an apparent weakLANDFILL | FROM Page 1 pacity to last through the end of 2024 and that the company is interested in future expansion. “Obviously, we’d like to continue to use the site,” WIN Waste Innovations’ James Connolly told members of the Saugus Board of Health’s Wheelabrator Subcommittee. “It’s convenient and adjacent to the plant,” he said. Connolly also said the company has some concerns about the longterm environmental eff ects of trucking the ash off site and the rising fuel costs connected with that should the ash landfi ll be closed permanently after 2024. But Rep. Turco – whose 19th Suff olk House District includes part of Revere – said he now believes the landfi ll’s future days are now numbered. “Environmental Justice means nothing to the people of the North Shore so long as the Wheelabrator Saugus Ash Landfi ll continues to operate in an ACEC,” Turco said in a statement this week. “Commissioner Suuberg’s letter makes clear that the long overdue closure of the Saugus Ash Landfi ll is on the horizon,” he said. State Rep. Jessica Giannino (D-Revere), whose district includes Precincts 3 and 10 in Saugus, said the Suuberg letter is welcome news. “I am so excited for this important step forward for Environmental Justice in the ness in their schedule, the Patriots were not awarded a spot in the Div. 3 postseason fi eld of 16. They were ranked 18th after eight games despite having more wins than several other teams that made the tournament. The two Div. 3 semifi nal games scheduled for this Friday are Marblehead against Westfi eld in Shrewsbury and Billerica against North Attleboro in Quincy. The winners move on to the Div. 3 Super Bowl game in December. As for the Patriots, they took care of business against 4-6 Belmont. Davi Barreto rushed for two touchdowns and Dominic Giordano hauled in a touchdown pass from quarterback Anwar Marbouh. Revere was coming off a 21-6 road win over Lynn Classical two weeks earTown of Saugus and City of Revere,” Giannino said. “We have been waiting my whole lifetime for this progress,” she said. Stephanie Shalkoski, co-president of Saugus Action Volunteers for the Environment (SAVE), said her group was pleased with MassDEP Commissioner Suuberg’s letter. “DEP clearly shares our long-standing concern that any plans to increase the height of the ash landfill will endanger the Rumney Marsh ACEC,” Shalkoski said. Attorney Kirstie Pecci, director of the Conservation Law Foundation’s Zero Waste Project, declared that “State offi cials would be absolutely right to deny the expansion of this already massive, polluting landfi ll.” “No new landfills or expansions of landfi lls are allowed in an Area of Critical Environmental Concern,” Pecci said. “The Saugus Ash Landfi ll is in the middle of one of these areas, so it is not allowed to expand vertically. End of story.” Commissioner Suuberg mentioned in his letter that during conversations with the Wheelabrator plant operators and community members in 2018, “MassDEP was clear that additional vertical expansion was beyond the limits of the site assignment.” “Any future proposals for expansion would require a modifi - cation to the facility’s site assignment and approval from Masslier. The Patriots didn’t appear to suff er any rust after the twoweek layoff . Their losses came at home to Peabody (28-7) in the season opener and to Div. I powerhouse Everett (37-11). Next on the schedule is the traditional Thanksgiving battle against the Winthrop Vikings. The two teams did not play each other in last spring’s abbreviated season. Revere rolled to a 40-19 win in 2019. The location for this year’s Turkey Day contest has not yet been determined. Winthrop, now 5-5 on the year, made the Div. 6 playoff tournament and advanced to the quarterfinal round by trouncing South Hadley, 350, two weeks ago. The Vikings then lost a close 37-34 affair to Rockland in last weekend’s quarterfi nal game. DEP and the Saugus Board of Health,” Suuberg wrote. “As the landfi ll is located within an Area of Critical Environmental Concern (ACEC), an expansion of the landfi ll (including vertical expansion) would need to meet the site suitability criteria in the Regulations with respect to the site assignment,” the commissioner said. But Suuberg added that it “fails to meet the necessary site suitability criteria to allow for expansion within the ACEC.” Precinct 10 Town Meeting Member Peter Manoogian called Commissioner Suuberg’s letter “an early Christmas present for the residents of East Saugus and Revere.” “I would hope that the WIN or Wheelabrator subcommittee would now shift away from making a ‘more ash for cash’ deal and work towards making the incinerator meet the highest and best emission standards,” Manoogian said. “To continue to pursue an ‘ash for cash’ deal is now nothing more than a fool’s errand that is contradictory towards what is best for the public health and the environment as confi rmed by Commissioner Suuberg. I would further encourage WIN to take advantage of the zoning overlay provided by Saugus Town Meeting that would allow them to develop a solar farm on the soon to be closed ash landfi ll,” he said.

Page 16 THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 IRS-CI releases annual report highlighting 2,500 investigations, law enforcement partnerships M ore than 2,500 criminal investigations, the identifi cation of more than $10 billion from tax fraud and fi nancial crimes, and a nearly 90 percent conviction rate are just a few highlights from the IRS-Criminal Investigation (IRS-CI) Fiscal Year 2021 Annual Report. The report, released Thursday, details statistics, important partnerships and signifi cant criminal enforcement actions from IRS-CI, the criminal investigative arm of the IRS, for the past fi scal year, which began Oct. 1, 2020 and ended Sept. 30, 2021. “IRS-CI agents are the only federal law enforcement officers with the authority to investigate criminal violations of the U.S. tax code. Their work reinforces the backbone of our voluntary compliance tax system -- a system that funds services and benefi ts for our nation, including defense, infrastructure and education,” said IRS Commissioner Charles Rettig. “The special agents and professional staff of the Boston Field Office had an incredible year investigating a broad range of fi nancial crimes” said Joleen Simpson, Special Agent in Charge of the Boston Field Offi ce. “As the only law enforcement agency with jurisdiction to investigate tax crimes and with a 90 percent federal conviction rate, we will continue in the laser-focused pursuit of our mission well into fi scal year 2022 and beyond.” In fi scal year 2021, IRS-CI built upon its existing network of U.S. field offices and international attachés to combat fi nancial crimes across the globe. The agency’s alliance with the Joint Chiefs of Global Tax Enforcement (J5) helped strengthen public-private partnerships with fi nancial institutions and the FinTech industry to deter and identify criminal activity. Additionally, IRS-CI established its fi rst cyber attaché in The Hague, Netherlands, to proactively support cyber investigative needs in coordination with Europol. “IRS-CI continues to lead tax and financial investigations here in the U.S. and across the globe,” said IRS-CI Chief James Lee. “In fi scal year 2021, as we faced the second year of a global pandemic, our team of agents continued to overcome personal and professional challenges to target criminals who exploited the U.S. tax and fi nancial systems for personal gain.” While IRS-CI agents spent most of their investigative manhours, about 72%, investigating tax-related crimes like tax evasion and tax fraud during fi scal year 2021, they also made signifi cant contributions to money laundering, narcotics traffi cking, public corruption, terrorism and COVID-19 fraud investigations. Case examples include: • On April 13, a Massachusetts man was sentenced to more than eight years in prison for aiding romance and lottery schemes targeting the elderly. • On January 8, the former owner of a seafood processing plant was sentenced in Rhode Island for tax evasion and seeking to obstruct IRS collection efforts for 10 years. • On April 20, the owner of two Connecticut nursing homes was sentenced to two-and-a-half years in prison for embezzlement and tax off enses. • On May 12, a Massachusetts painting business owner was sentenced for perpetrating a $2 million income and payroll tax fraud scheme. • On April 14, a New Hampshire man was sentenced to one-and-a-half years in prison for facilitating employment tax fraud. The report includes additional case examples for each U.S. fi eld office, an overview of IRS-CI’s international footprint, details about the specialized services provided by IRS-CI and investigative statistics, broken down by discipline, for fi scal year 2021.

One of the other big proposed changes is the swapping of Ward 3, Precinct 3 and Ward 5, precinct 3. Kantor said there was testimony from the public to shift the precincts so that all of Ward 3 will now be in the 16th Suff olk District, and all of Ward 5 will be in the 19th Suff olk. Before opening it up to discussion from the council, Kantor also noted that Ward 2 Councillor Ira Novoselsky had some issues with the redistricting, which, among other things, moves the Garfi eld School into Ward 1. “As you mentioned, I am not happy,” said Novoselsky when it came time for his input. “I am concerned about the small precinct of 2-3a; it shows that there are only 762 people that were accounted for in that precinct, and that doesn’t mean 762 voters.” Novoselsky asked why there would be a precinct that would be likely to turn out 100 voters. But the bigger bombshell, as far as the rest of the council was concerned, was when Novoselsky brought up a voting block on the map bounded by Waverly Avenue, North Shore Road, and Centennial Avenue that the census data showed had 67 voters. “Now, the way (Kantor) explained it to me, it’s that little block that shows 67 people, and nothing against the owner of the property, but that is Atlas Auto Body, which is an auto body shop,” said Novoselsky. “You don’t have 67 people living in that building; it’s a single building in that one little block.” Novoselsky said he was blaming the people who collected the census data for cheating and fi nding ways to add people to the roles in his ward. “I would ask for a federal investigation on that, because it is ridiculous that that is showing 67 people in that building; it’s impossible and you and the committee should go back and check that because it’s wrong, it’s absolutely wrong,” said Novoselsky. Kantor said he understood Novoselsky’s frustration, but noted several times that the city was working with numbers coming from the U.S. Commerce Department, and that it would be impossible to have the federal government launch an investigation and change data in three weeks. “There is no realistic way that Location of Atlas Auto Body at 1605 North Shore Rd. (Courtesy Photo) the U.S. government is going to change the census data in the next three weeks in time for us to approve a map,” said Kantor. “I hope I am expressing that I am frustrated too, and I wish there was a way out of this, but I don’t actually have one.” Council President Anthony Zambuto said he was deeply concerned that the city was getting census data that apparently showed 67 people living in an auto body shop. “This is the kind of stuff I can’t stand,” Zambuto said. “I know there is a census and all, but if the census data was wrong, it’s got to be corrected and I don’t care how it’s corrected, but there are not 67 people living in that body shop. If that’s an example of the census and how it was done, God help us, this is ridiculous.” Ward 6 Councillor Richard Serino asked what would happen if the council did not approve a new map by the state deadline in order to sort out the data brought up by Novoselsky. “The accusation that there could be individuals who answered the census fraudulently, that’s a federal crime, so I don’t even know where to begin and what to do with that,” said Kantor. “The idea that we could solve this potential federal crime in the next three weeks seems unrealistic, and I’m not just saying that because I want you to do the things I want you to do.” Zambuto noted that another public hearing was scheduled for Thursday evening, Nov. 18 (after presstime) and that some of the issues could be sorted out at that meeting. Attorney Kate Cook of the redistricting committee said that at the moment, it was not clear if the accusations of the fraudulent counts were correct, and that if they were, they would be looked into. “We’re not in charge of the information, we are trying to help the City Council to do its job to approve the maps under its statutory requirements,” said Cook. Later in the evening, the council approved a motion by Councillor-At-Large George Rotondo asking for a state audit of the census data, pending any new information that could potentially have been presented on Thursday evening to help clear up the situation. Following Monday’s meeting, Kantor and election commissioner Diane Colella both confi rmed that because 1605 North Shore Rd. is a commercial property, it wouldn’t be listed in the residential database as maintained by the Secretary of State’s offi ce and that the city does not have any registered voters or residents listed at that address. Kantor said there is no correlation between the U.S. Census data and registered voters, nor is there no connection between the U.S. Census and the city census run by the elections department. He added that no residents are using that address as their city census address. Following the Monday evening hearing, Kantor said the city sent questions related to the 67 people to contacts at the U.S. Commerce Department, and had not received a response to those questions by 11:45 a.m. on Nov. 17. “The anomaly of the Atlas Auto Body being used as a U.S. Census address is notable because 67 people claim to live within a Census Block in which there are no residential structures, and Atlas is the only existing building on the entire Census Block,” said Kantor. “This situation is not unique to Revere. The Secretary of State’s Offi ce informed the city legal counsel that there were other similar anomalies found in other cities.” Kantor said there could be a number of possible explanations for populations being counted in a census block with no residential address. None of those explanations involve any form of fraud or impropriety on the part of city staff or grantees, he added. “In fact, this is not the fi rst time that Revere residents used the Atlas Auto Body census block as their residence in a U.S. Census,” said Kantor. “The 2010 Census shows 35 people living at that block, and the 2000 Census with 57 people.

Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on roll calls from the week of November 8-12. There were no roll calls in the House. Most of the Senate roll calls are on the $3.82 billion package which spends the federal money the state received from the American Rescue Plan Act (ARPA) and the surplus left over from the state’s fi scal year 2021 budget on relief and recovery from the eff ect of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past 18 months. A LOOK BEHIND THE SCENES OF THE $3.82 BILLION FOR COVID RELIEF AND RECOVERY PACKAGE All of the decisions on which senators’ amendments are included or not included in the relief and recovery package are made “behind closed doors in person” or in the COVID-19 era, “behind closed Zoom doors.” Many of the more than 700 amendments proposed were on local projects for cities and towns in individual senators’ districts. Some amendments were considered individually but many were consolidated into “Yes” or “No” bundles, created by the Democratic leadership, and were approved or rejected on a voice vote all at once without debate and without a roll call vote. Supporters of this system say that any senator who sponsored an amendment that was placed in the “No” bundle can bring it to the fl oor and ask for an up or down vote on the amendment itself. They say this system has If you have any questions about this week’s report, e-mail us at bob@beaconhillrollcall.com or call us at (617) 720-1562. worked well for many years. Critics say this system gives too much power to the Democratic leadership and leaves all the decisions up to a handful of senators in the leadership whose word is fi nal. $3.82 BILLION FOR COVID RELIEF AND RECOVERY (S 2564) Senate 38-0, approved a $3.82 billion package which spends the federal money the state received from the ARPA and the surplus left over from the state’s fiscal year 2021 budget on relief and recovery from the eff ect of the COVID-19 pandemic over the past 18 months. The plan includes one-time investments in health and human services, education, housing, the environment including climate mitigation, economic development and jobs. The House has already approved a diff erent version of the measure and a House-Senate conference committee will hammer out a compromise version. Provisions include $400 million in mental and behavioral health support; $118.4 million for public health infrastructure and data sharing; $95 million for grants to local boards of health to be prepared to respond to future public health threats; $60 million for food security infrastructure; $50 million for nursing facilities; $25 million for a grant program for community violence prevention focused on communities disproportionately impacted by the COVID-19 pandemic; $500 million for the Unemployment Insurance Trust Fund to provide relief to small businesses; $75 million for equitable and aff ordable broadband access and infrastructure improvements to close the digital divide; $75 million for the Mass Cultural Council; $50 million for grants to minority-owned small businesses; $600 million for investments in affordable and accessible housing; $25 million for tree planting; $15 million for parks and recreational projects; $10 million for clean energy retrofi tting in aff ordable housing units; and $7.5 million for community colleges to help train underserved populations for green jobs. “The Massachusetts State Senate has acted decisively to support our state’s recovery and ensure we do not go back to normal but ‘back to better,’” said Senate President Karen Spilka (DAshland). “The Senate’s proposal provides a path towards an equitable recovery that benefi ts residents, businesses and communities through transformational investments in public health, housing and climate change.” “The Senate demonstrated its commitment to using the oncein-a-lifetime opportunity that the ARPA funds represent to fuel an equitable recovery and support the communities most impacted by the pandemic,” said Sen. Mike Rodrigues (D-Westport), Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways and Means. “The Senate has risen to the challenge of making meaningful investments in mental health, public health, workforce development, aff ordable housing and so much more, ensuring those hit the hardest by COVID-19—families, essential workers and small businesses—are being helped the most.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill). Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned UNEMPLOYMENT TRUST FUND (S 2564) Senate 5-32, rejected an amendment that would increase from $500 million to $1 billion the amount of money that the bill would place in the state’s Unemployment Trust Fund which pays out unemployment benefi ts to jobless residents. Supporters said that employers are currently saddled with paying back the $7 billion the state borrowed during the pandemic to stabilize the dwindling amount of money in the trust fund. Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (RGloucester), the sponsor of the amendment said businesses will fi nd it diffi cult to bring on new employees while coping with the added costs of repaying the $7 billion. “It was not possible to plan for a global pandemic that would cost $7 billion in the cost of the unemployment insurance trust fund,” said Tarr. “They’re going to say, ‘Can I aff ord that new employee, can I aff ord that new group of employees, when I have my share of this $7 billion mortgage?’ It’s hard enough. We don’t need that additional obstacle to be any higher than it has to be.” “Employers have experienced great hardship and I support funds to reduce unemployment costs, but the underlying bill dedicates nearly 10 percent of our total ARPA funds to this purpose.” said Sen. Pat Jehlen (DSomerville) who voted against the amendment. “The [Baker] administration has presented no evidence to justify the added money, given the current positive trust fund balance of $3 billion, with only $2.2 billion outstanding debt. Until we receive that justifi - cation, I believe the level of contribution off ered in the bill is suffi cient for now.” (A “Yes” vote is for the additional $500 million. A “No” vote is against it.)

THE REVERE ADVOCATE – FRIDAY, NOVEMBER 19, 2021 Page 19 BEACON | FROM Page 18 TWO-WEEK SALES TAX HOLIDAY (S 2564) Senate 3-34, rejected an amendment providing $210 million for a two-week sales tax holiday in 2022 allowing consumers to buy most products that cost under $2,500 during a two-week sales tax holiday without paying the state’s 6.25 percent sales tax. State law currently calls for a twoday sales tax holiday every year. Amendment supporters say this longer tax-free holiday would boost retail sales and noted that consumers would save millions of dollars. They said this is a reasonable way to provide relief to taxpayers who suff ered during the pandemic and are now dealing with infl ation, the high cost of gas, groceries and so many other things. Amendment opponents said extending the holiday is more of a feel-good policy that does little to help families. They noted the extension would actually generate little additional revenue for stores because consumers typically buy the products even without the tax-free days. (A “Yes” vote is for the additional $210 million and the two-week sales tax holiday. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned $5 MILLION FOR COLLEGE STUDENTS’ BEHAVIORAL AND MENTAL HEALTH NEEDS (S 2564) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment that would provide $5 million for grants to public higher education institutions to address student behavioral and mental health needs. “College is the fi rst time many young adults experience living on their own, which can certainly be a challenging transition,” said sponsor Sen. Julian Cyr (R-Truro). “With the increased isolation and stress from the pandemic, there has been an unprecedented increase in the number of college students who report that they suff er from anxiety, depression and suicidal thoughts. Simply put, young adults are suff ering. [This] amendment will help address and support the mental health needs of students in our public higher education institutions.” (A “Yes” vote is for the $5 million). Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned GIVE MEDAL OF LIBERTY TO PEOPLE WHO DIE DURING TRAINING EXERCISES (S 2564) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment that would expand eligibility for the Medal of Liberty to include families of service members who died during training exercises. Current law awards the medal to Massachusetts service men and women who have been killed in action or who died in service while in a designated combat area in the line of duty or who died from wounds received in action. Sen. John Velis (D-Westfield) told the story of Air Force Lt. Col. Morris “Moose” Fontenot Jr., a Longmeadow resident who died in 2014 after his F-15C Eagle fi ghter jet crashed during a routine fl ight. Under 2014 and current law, Fontenot was not and is not eligible for the Medal of Liberty. “There is an expression in the military,” said Velis. “‘Train as you fi ght, fi ght as you train.’ In order to be the best, you need to train to be the best and with that training comes its own set of dangers. Lt. Col. Fontenot’s story is not alone. We have service members completing missions and trainings like him every single day. It is imperative that we recognize the dangers that these even routine missions present and properly honor the sacrifi ces of all of our service members.” (A “Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned ALLOW AMBULANCES TO BE USED FOR INJURED POLICE DOGS – NERO’S LAW (S 1606) Senate 38-0, approved legislation that would require EMS personnel to provide emergency treatment to a police dog and use an ambulance to transport the dog injured in the line of duty to a veterinary clinic or veterinary hospital if there are not people requiring emergency medical treatment or transport at that time. Sponsor Sen. Mark Montigny (D-New Bedford) fi rst fi led the bill in 2019 following the tragic death of Yarmouth Police Sgt. Sean Gannon who was shot and killed in the line of duty. His K-9 partner Nero was severely injured and had to be rushed to the animal hospital in the back of a police cruiser. Nero survived. Montigny also cites the heartbreaking loss of the beloved K-9 Kitt of the Braintree Police Department. “K-9 offi cers protect the men and women in law enforcement as well as the community at-large,” said Montigny. “These animals endure extreme danger from gun violence, narcotics and even explosive materials. Allowing our emergency personnel to provide basic treatment and transport is a commonsense measure that honors their contributions across the commonwealth. Sgt. Gannon was a native son of New Bedford and therefore his K-9 partner Nero is part of our community’s extended family. Words cannot describe the gratitude we have for the Gannon family for their tenacious and compassionate advocacy to get this bill done.” “With Nero’s Law, we have the opportunity to save K-9 members of law enforcement where the opportunity to do so would not place a person at risk,” said Sen. Susan Moran (D-Falmouth). “K-9s are their offi cers’ partners, shields and scouts. Like Nero and Kitt, their job is to put themselves in danger to protect us, and despite the K-9’s service to our commonwealth, an archaic law stood in the way of measures that could save these valued members of law enforcement. This has gone on long enough.” (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned CONTINUE SESSION BEYOND 8 P.M. Senate 35-2, approved a motion to suspend Senate rules to allow the Senate session to continue beyond 8 p.m. Under Senate rules, the Senate cannot meet after 8 p.m. unless the rule is suspended. The session lasted almost three hours beyond 8 p.m. and adjourned at 10:40 p.m. Supporters of rule suspension said that the Senate has important work to fi nish on the $3.82 billion COVID relief and recovery package and should stay in session to work on it. Opponents of rule suspension said it is irresponsible for the Senate to debate and vote late at night when taxpayers are asleep. (A “Yes” vote is for meeting beyond 8 p.m. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Joseph Boncore has resigned HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been fi led. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of November 8-12, the House met for a total of one hour and 24 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 12 hours and 25 minutes. Mon. Nov. 8 House 11:04 a.m. to 12:18 p.m. Senate 11:15 a.m. to 11:23 a.m. Tues. Nov. 9 No House session Senate 1:13 p.m. to 1:24 p.m. Wed.
