he City Council unanimously voted to adopt a split levy rate on Monday night, shifting the burden from residential to commercial, industrial and personal property (CIP) at the highest shift of 175 percent. The FY 18 tax rate will be $13.78 per $1,000 of valuation on residential properties and $33.74 per $1,000 of valuation on CIP properties. If the council

hadn’t approved the shift, the flat rate for residential and CIP properties would have been $19.28 per $1,000. The shift will not prevent homeowners from seeing a small increase in their actual taxes, as home values have skyrocketed in the city over the last year. On average, single-family home values rose by about $39,000 since the

S

tate Senator Sal DiDomenico recently received the 2017 Legislator of the Year Award from the Massachusetts Association of School Committees (MASC) for his work on behalf of Massachusetts public schools and the students of the Commonwealth. Senator DiDomenico was nominated for this recognition by the Everett School Committee and accepted his award at the MASC Annual Joint Conference in Hyannis. MASC selected Senator DiDomenico as their 2017 Legislator of the Year for his â&#x20AC;&#x153;tireless advocacy and service on behalf of children and families in Massachusetts and for ensuring the strength and survival of local municipal government in the great tradition of the Commonwealth of Massachusetts.â&#x20AC;? â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would like to sincerely thank the Massachusetts Association of School Committees for naming me their 2017 Legislator of the Year,â&#x20AC;?said Senator DiDomenico. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I would also like to especially thank MASC Executive Director Glenn Koocher and my friends on the Everett School Committee for nominating me for this award. It is an honor to be recognized by a group of people who have devoted their lives to giving all of Massachusettsâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;students the tools they need to succeed in school and beyond, and I am proud to support their work in the State Senate.â&#x20AC;?

Since his election to the Senate, Senator DiDomenico has been a vocal advocate for children and families and an ardent champion of Massachusetts public schools. Throughout his tenure, he has filed several major pieces of legislation that have been signed into law â&#x20AC;&#x201C; focusing on issues of education, childrenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s health

and human services, among others. In 2015 he was selected as one of only 22 legislators throughout the United States to serve as an Early Learning Fellow by the National Conference of State Legislators. He

Mayor signs order to transfer $12.5 million from Community Mitigation Stabilization Fund

O

n Monday, November 27, Mayor Carlo DeMaria signed an order to transfer $12.5 million from the Community Mitigation Stabilization Fund. This funding is part of the Host Community Agreement with Wynn Resorts, and Mayor DeMaria is pleased that the project will directly benefit residents in this way even before opening. Wynn Boston Harbor will create a large municipal revenue stream when it becomes operational in June 2019, as outlined in the Host Community Agreement. On November 13, Mayor DeMaria introduced the order that will save money for the homeowners and business owners of Everett. He stated, “I believe that we are on steady financial ground and will responsibly use this money to offset the tax levy at this time. I would like to thank the City Council for their consideration and approving my proposal. I look forward to continuing to work with them to protect the taxpayers of Everett.” In a letter to the City Council, Mayor DeMaria explained how the City of Everett is uniquely positioned to invest those significant new revenues into the components that will make Everett a tremendous place to live or visit: mod-

While future revenues will be dedicated to transformational projects such as these, Mayor DeMaria understands how important it is to provide a measure of tax relief to our residents and business owners now.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, December 1, 2017

Legislature passes DiDomenico’s bill to expand language opportunities for students L

ast week the Massachusetts Legislature passed bipartisan legislation sponsored by State

Senator Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) that updates the existing statute relative to English Lan-

guage education in the Commonwealth’s public schools. An Act relative to language opportunity for our kids, also known as the LOOK bill, promotes research-based best practices for programs serving English learners (EL). Since the year 2000, the number of EL students in Massachusetts has doubled to more than 90,204 students, or 9.5 percent of the student population. While statewide graduation rates for students have risen over the past 10 years, the achievement gap between EL students and their peers persists. “While the current English language instruction model has proven to be beneficial for some of our Commonwealth’s English learners, countless other EL students have found themselves falling behind in this restrictive academic environment,” said

Senator DiDomenico, the Senate sponsor of the bill. “This legislation changes that by rethinking the way we approach educating our English learners and giving our schools greater flexibility to select the programs that fit the diverse and unique needs of their students. I am confident this bill takes crucial strides towards guaranteeing that every student receives a fair opportunity at educational success, and I would like to thank my fellow conference committee members and the many advocates who helped to bring this legislation to fruition.” “Allowing parents and local school districts the flexibility to choose the most effective programs to cater to the specific needs of their students is not only good public policy but also what is best for our students to be successful,” said Senate Pres-

ident Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst). “We live in a global community and we must be able to adapt to the changing needs of our communities … This bill achieves that goal.” “Every student has unique needs, and it is our obligation to foster an environment where they are afforded an education tailored to them,” said House Speaker Robert A. DeLeo (D-Winthrop). “Massachusetts’ education system is the best in the nation, and I believe that this legislation will enhance our standing while ensuring that education is, indeed, the great equalizer.” “The accord reached today by the conference committee is a huge step forward for English language instruction in our Commonwealth,” said Senator Sonia Chang-Díaz (D-Boston), co-chair

SOUNDS OF E VERET T Is the MIAA alright? What are they thinking scheduling the Div. One Super Bowl, EHS vs. Xaverian at 8 p.m.? Or maybe they’re not thinking at all. In my opinion, heading to Gillette Stadium in the evening hours and leaving the fans to drive home on a Saturday night around 10:30 is disastrous in itself, but starting the Div. One Super Bowl game at 8 p.m. is foolhardy. Why can’t they figure that out?

FENWAY’S CLEAN-UP HITTER: Tide running back Kevin Brown, who was sensational on offense against Masconomet while scoring three touchdowns for 100 yards total, earning the senior honors as the Boston Herald’s “Star of the Week” for his sensational running efforts. The game was played at Fenway Park, where Kevin, you might say, was the Tide’s clean-up hitter.

IMMIGRANT | FROM PAGE 1 country she’s never known. Flores has lived in America her entire life, but her parents’ legal status is dependent on Temporary Protected Status (TPS), a designation allowing people to legally reside in the country if it would be dangerous for them to return to their native country due to extraordinary conditions like war and natural disaster. Immigrants under TPS from several countries, namely Nicaragua and Honduras, have had their status stripped under the Trump administration. Despite an 18-month delay, thousands of Haitians who fled the 2010 earthquake will lose their TPS status soon, and many fear that El Salvador will be next. “I can be a shy person, but I’m speaking today because I want to speak on behalf of those who are afraid to speak in my community. I want to be part of a city that has leaders that will stand like they are today, and will continue to stand to make sure that my family, my neighbors and my friends will continue to have the right to live and work and add a lot to this community,” said Flores. As she finished, Mayor DeMaria approached the podium and went off-script. “This little girl here is in the seventh grade,”he said.“Could you imagine, if her parents were deported and she has to go to a country that she doesn’t know anything about – and the violence in those countries. This is something that we need to take seriously. This is a human issue. This is not a political issue; it’s a human issue. And I think if the Republicans and the Democrats can just put the B.S. to the side and come up with an immigration bill together and get something passed, then these people could be paying taxes, living their lives and being productive citizens.” For months, local immigrant organizations have lobbied the city to take action – beginning with taking a public stand of support with the immigrant community – as the Trump administration has rescinded programs which provide legal status to hundreds of thousands of immigrants nationwide, several hundred of them in Everett alone. Key among these programs are Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA), an Obama-era program rescinded by the Trump administration in June, which allowed some individuals who entered the country as minors to remain legally and receive work permits, and TPS. According to Iliana Panameño, an organizer with the local group La Comunidad, the group’s “little office” on Broadway is currently serving 400 TPS

At a rally on Tuesday, Mayor Carlo DeMaria called for the U.S. Congress to act and restore legal status to immigrants formerly protected by TPS and DACA– surrounded by members of local community groups, State Rep. Joseph McGonagle, Council President Anthony DiPierro and Police Chief Steve Mazzie.

recipients and 200 DACA recipients. Their work is paying off this week. At Tuesday’s press con-

ference outside City Hall, Mayor DeMaria, standing with activists and city leaders, called

for the U.S. Congress to restore legal status to those who were protected under TPS and DACA

Page 9 and to create a legal pathway to citizenship: “The people here through TPS work hard, many filling much-needed and critically important jobs in our region’s booming healthcare sector. They own or rent homes, support our local businesses and volunteer in our community. Many are sending money back to their countries to help rebuild. We count on them. They pay taxes and yet cannot receive any benefits; therefore, they are actually providing support for the rest of us who expect to receive Social Security or other federal benefits someday.”

The Massachusetts State Senate Recognizes

The Massachusetts State Senate feted the Everett High School “Crimson Tide” Marching Band on November 15, 2017 at the State House in Boston. State Senator Sal DiDomenico (right) recognized the Band for its undefeated competitive season, extraordinary community service and yearlong dedication to the performing arts. The highlight of the day was the performance in the Senate Chambers

by the Crimson Tide of its program, “The Home of The Brave’, a tribute to the Men and Women of the United States Military. The combined members of the Massachusetts Senate rewarded the students with a rousing ovation at the conclusion of its historic performance. Pictured with band members at right are Superintendent Frederick F. Foresteire, EHS music teacher Cassandra McDonald,

DiDomenico, Senate pass bill to establish climate change adaptation management action plan S

enator Sal DiDomenico (D-Everett) and his colleagues in the Massachusetts Senate recently passed S.2196, An Act providing for the establishment of a comprehensive

adaptation management plan in response to climate change. This is the fifth time such a plan has been passed by the Senate: first in July 2014, then July 2015, followed by January 2016, and

A weekly feature in The Advocate

as part of the Energy Diversity bill in June 2016. “As a Commonwealth and a nation, we can no longer wait to properly address and plan for the harmful realities of climate change,” said Senator DiDomenico, who is Vice Chair of the Senate Committee on Ways & Means. He continued, “This critical piece of legislation will put Massachusetts at the forefront of innovation when it comes to addressing climate change by creating a long-term, preemptive strategy that will help to protect our environment, as well as invest in our local economy and infrastructure. I am proud to have voted in favor of this bipartisan bill, and I look forward to advocating for its passage as it moves to the House of Representatives for consideration.” A Comprehensive Adaptation Management Action Plan (CAMP) would be established through a collaboration led by the state Secretary of Energy and Environmental Affairs (EEA) and the state Secretary of Public Safety and Security. CAMP would codify for the Baker Administration and all future administrations the goals, priorities and principles for resiliency, preservation, protection, restoration and enhancement of the Commonwealth’s built and natural infrastructure, based on data around existing and projected climate change impacts, including temperature changes, drought, inland flooding and sea level rise. The plan would go into effect in 2018 with an

update every five years. “If gone unchecked, severe weather will wreak immense havoc on Massachusetts,” said Senate President Pro Tempore Marc R. Pacheco (D-Taunton), who is founding chair of the Senate Committee on Global Warming and Climate Change and the original sponsor of the bill. He continued, “An adaptation plan must be codified in statute to protect our economy, public health and built and natural infrastructures. We can make our communities more resilient to the harmful effects of climate change by using our unique system of federalism to forge our own paths and organize for survival. This is the fifth time the Senate has sent resiliency legislation to the House, and it is high time that these protections make their way to the Governor’s desk.” “The recent historically damaging and powerful hurricanes have put climate change at the forefront of international issues,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst). “We believe it is essential for us to act right now, at least on the key issues of adapting to the potential change, being ready for them and reducing emissions. Senator Pacheco’s bill once again puts Massachusetts in a leadership role on a critical issue. If we don’t plan and adapt for climate change now, we will pay dearly down the road, both in terms of potential harm to our residents and in dollars we will have to spend. This bill creates a proactive, long-term strategy to

deal with the realities of our changing climate.” “Merely reacting to climate change is not cost-effective, and it can have many advance consequences,” said Senate Minority Leader Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester). “Having a dynamic and responsive plan can maximize the potential for success in addressing the impacts we must face on this front.” Through the legislation, a CAMP advisory commission would be established through EEA and the Executive Office of Public Safety and Security (EOPSS). The committee would be charged with producing a report that documents the preparedness and vulnerabilities in the Commonwealth’s emergency response, energy, transportation, communications, health and other systems. The group would also put forth a proposal that establishes and commits to sound management practices while compiling data on existing and projected sea-level rise using the best available science. The legislation also establishes a regional, comprehensive CAMP grant program to aid in the development of regional adaptation plans. The program consists of financial assistance to municipalities for the development and implementation of comprehensive cost-effective adaptation management plans; technical planning guidance for adaptive municipalities through climate vulnerability assessments and adaptation strategy development; and development of a definition of impacts by supporting municipalities conducting climate vulnerability assessments. The grants shall be used to advance efforts to adapt land use, zoning, infrastructure, policies and programs to reduce the vulnerability of the built and natural environment to changing environmental conditions that are a result of climate change. The EEA secretary shall also develop and implement an outreach and education program about climate change and its effects in low-income and urban areas. The bill also creates a coastal buy-back program authorizing EOPSS to acquire, by voluntary purchase, property abutting areas subject to tides or barrier beaches or located in velocity zones of flood plain areas that contain

)HQZD\ZLQWXQHXS7LGHIRU6XSHU%RZO6DWXUGD\DW*LOOHWWH By Julian Cardillo The Everett High School football team got a tuneup sorts the day before Thanksgiving when they beat Masconomet, 3620, at Fenway Park. Given that they’ll play Xaverian in the Super Bowl on Saturday night at Gillette Stadium, getting a chance to play in a professional arena is a huge experience. “I think it put us in big-game mode,” said Everett coach John DiBiaso. “The team was excited to be in that setting, and I think it helps to be in an environment like that.” The Crimson Tide is 10-0 ahead of the championship game. Masco gave Everett a game, but couldn’t overcome a tsunami RI RႇHQVLYH ¿UHSRZHU Even so, DiBiaso was QRWIXOO\VDWLV¿HGZLWKKLV team’s performance. “I hope it was a wakeup call ahead of the Super Bowl, because we were sloppy … I think we overlooked Masco a bit,” said DiBiaso, whose team turned the ball over twice last Wednesday. Kevin Brown scored three touchdowns for Everett and had 100 yards rushing on 11 carries. Quarterback Jake Willcox connected with Mike Sainristil, who scored a 32yard touchdown. The Crimson Tide got help from their special teams, too, as Lewis Cine blocked a Masconomet punt, Jordan Riggs scooping up the ball and returning it 11 yards for another score. “Coming to Fenway – it was a big experience,” Brown told reporters. “Coaches stressed that [Masconomet] were going to come out and want to play. In a big environment – all the people coming out, playing at Fenway Park – you just got to play your game and have fun.”

Playing Xaverian will be another animal entirely. Everett has notched three consecutive victories against the Hawks, including one in this season’s opener, but LVH[SHFWLQJDVWLႇWHVW “We’ve had a good week of practice,” DiBiaso said. “But we can’t take anything for granted. Xaverian will be up for the game … It’s a lot like last year. They were the undefeated team, and we came into the Super Bowl and shocked them. We don’t want to fall into that trap.” &ULPVRQ7LGHWDNHVWKH¿HOGDW)HQZD\3DUN

Pride is what makes our city a great community

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, December 1, 2017 THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ and representatives’ votes on roll calls from earlier November sessions. There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. CORRECTION: Beacon Hill Roll Call made an error in a recent report. The first roll call vote below (CUT $550,000 FOR VARIOUS HEALTH-RELATED PROGRAMS) has the correct information and how your local legislators voted. CUT $550,000 FOR VARIOUS HEALTH-RELATED PROGRAMS (H 3800) House 125-28, Senate 35-2, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s reduction of $150,000 for programs for the promotion of health and disease prevention including prevention of breast cancer, hepatitis C and colorectal cancer; and screening for prostate cancer, diabetes, ovarian cancer, multiple sclerosis and osteoporosis. The $150,000 is not earmarked for any specific program. The governor also vetoed another $400,000 for specific programs including $100,000 for macular degeneration research into prevention and treatment of the disease; $25,000 for a diabetes prevention program; $25,000 for a program that provides peer support and education, home independence training and adaptive aids to people who are learning to cope and function safely and independently with the loss of sight; $100,000 for research to provide solid scientific evidence for the cranberry’s role in health and nutrition; and $100,000 for providing medically tailored meals to persons battling chronic illnesses and providing workforce training programs to people recovering from addiction. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $550,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes Yes

PROHIBIT CONSIDERATION OF DETAINING ILLEGAL IMMIGRANTS (H 4011) House 119-34, upheld the ruling of Acting House Speaker Patricia Haddad (D-Somerset) that prohibited consideration of an amendment that would authorize police officers, court officers and other law enforcement officers to detain a person under certain circumstances, at the request of Immigration and Customs Enforcement (ICE) on the grounds that there is probable cause that such person is a removable illegal alien. This would apply only in those cases where an individual has already been arrested and is about to be released from custody or is deemed to pose a threat to public safety because he or she has engaged in terrorism or has been convicted of a serious crime such as a felony, human trafficking or drug trafficking. The amendment also restricts the amount of time an individual can be detained to no more than 12 hours. The amendment was filed in response to a July decision by the state’s highest court which ruled that state local law enforcement officials do not have the authority to detain a person based solely on a request from ICE. Haddad ruled that the amendment is not properly before the House because it was not included in any earlier versions of the bill and introduction of this new subject-matter would expand upon the bill and violate House rules. Supporters of the ruling said the ruling is appropriate and follows the rules of the House. Opponents of the ruling said clearly the issue of arresting and holding illegal immigrants is related to a bill making changes in the criminal justice system. (A “Yes” vote is for the ruling. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

Yes

PROHIBIT MORE WIRETAPPING TO BE CONSIDERED (H 4011) House 123-34, upheld the ruling by Acting House Speaker Paul Donato (D-Medford) that prohibited consideration of an amendment that would al-

low law enforcement to request the authority from the courts to use wiretapping in cases of murder, manslaughter, rape, human trafficking, drug trafficking, the manufacturing or distribution of drugs, weapons trafficking, witness intimidation and use or possession of explosives or chemical weapons. Current law, which has not changed since 1968, allows wiretapping to be used only when the crime is committed in connection with organized crime. Donato ruled that the amendment is not properly before the House because it was not included in any earlier versions of the bill and introduction of this new subject-matter would expand upon the bill and violate House rules. “Such new subject-matter in the form of an amendment from the floor of the House and thereby by-passing the deliberative steps required under our rules for the passage of a bill,” said the ruling. “That would violate the essence of the legislative process.”

Supporters of the ruling said the ruling is right on target and follows the rules of the House. Opponents of the ruling said the issue of using wiretaps to help convict criminals is related to a bill making changes in the criminal justice system. (A “Yes” vote is for the ruling. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

Yes

EXPUNGE JUVENILE RECORDS (H 4011) A section of a proposed criminal justice bill would have allowed offenders who committed a crime before their 21st birthday to apply for expungement of certain records after 10 years for a felony or a misdemeanor if the individual has met all other qualifying criteria. The House 127-26, approved an amendment that reduced that waiting period to seven years for a felony and three years for a misdemeanor. Amendment supporters said research

Page 21

shows states with shorter expungement periods have reduced recidivism rates. They noted that the amendment will create earlier possibilities for these offenders to turn their lives around while still ensuring public safety. They argued that the amendment will reduce barriers to employment, housing and educational opportunities. Amendment opponents said the reduction is excessive and argued that the original ten-year waiting period for both felonies and misdemeanors is fair to offenders and also in the best interest of public safety. They noted that allowing an offender who is convicted of breaking and entering and larceny under $1,000 to apply to have his or her record expunged after three years is too lenient. (A “Yes” vote is for the reductions. A “No” vote is against the reductions.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle

Yes

CUT ENTIRE $60,000 FOR TEACHING FINANCIAL LITERACY (H 3800) Senate 30-7, overrode Gov. Baker’s veto of the entire $60,000 for a program that mentors and teaches financial literacy to low-income women. (A“Yes”vote is for funding the $60,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

CUT $122,274 FOR PRISONER’S LEGAL SERVICES (H 3800) Senate 30-6, overrode a reduc-

tion of $122,274 (from $1,609,465 to $1,487,191) in funding for Prisoners’ Legal Services, a program that provides legal representation for indigent and disadvantaged defendants. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $122,274. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes

HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of November 2024, the House met for a total of 34 minutes and the Senate met for a total of 27 minutes.

day nightâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s meeting was no exception. Twenty-one-year-old Fatima Melara was born in El Salvador, but she was brought to the United States when she was five. She attended Madeline English School and graduated from Everett High in 2014, and is now working on an Associateâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Degree in radiography at Bunker Hill Community College. And all of that could be in vain, Melara said, because she is a DREAMer (from an acronym for Development, Relief, and Education for Alien Minors Act), one of the 800,000 people who lost their status when DACA was rescinded. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I feel like Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m home here, except for the fact that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not sure that Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;ll be able to stay and finish my career and all the goals I have yet to accomplish,â&#x20AC;?she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As a DREAMer, I have my working permit; therefore, I work and file taxes as any other citizen. The only difference is that I donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t have benefits, such as voting and getting financial aid. I am aware that I have to work twice as hard to get half of what my friends that were born here have. If I get deported back to El Salvador, it will be as if I were a foreigner there, because I would have to start from zero. â&#x20AC;Ś If this happens, then where did all my hard work go, all my dreams?â&#x20AC;? A 15-year-old student named Kevin shared similar fears on Monday. While he is a citizen, his parents are protected by TPS.

My parents are my main role models.

To see [that] this program that is protecting not only their legal status in this country but also protecting my goals and my dreams could be deteriorating or retracted, is disastrous in all forms and ways for me.â&#x20AC;? He also fears for his younger brother, who is handicapped from the waist down. â&#x20AC;&#x153;How would he even go to school?â&#x20AC;? asked Kevin.

IMMIGRANT | FROM PAGE 22 These are fears that Peter Lahey, Vice President of Everett Teacher’s Association and a History teacher at EHS for the past 14 years, said he often hears in his classes. “Often these are some of my best students: students in honors and AP courses that I teach,” said Lahey. “They have all the characteristics that we claim to admire in the young: They are diligent, smart, well-mannered and eager to continue their path to a solid career. None of these students is a bad kid. Many of them work 30 hours a week; they pay taxes on their earnings; they contribute to their family economies; they help pay rent and put food on the table. This they do while they’re going to school.”

Having heard similar testimony for months, the council took its first step last week, creating an immigrant dialogue committee. On Monday night, the council attempted to pass a resolution calling for Congress to act and provide legal status to those formerly protected under DACA and TPS. While many councillors voiced their support, Ward 1 Councillor Fred Capone stated that under the council’s rules, such “expressions of sentiment” have to first be considered by a council committee. “I know that we’re all in favor of this resolution, and I commend all the speakers who came forward … unfortunately, under rule 18, if there’s an expression of sentiment, it has to go to legislative affairs [subcommittee]; it’s not debatable, and none of that can be suspended. So unfortunately, as much as we would like to vote on this piece this evening, it has to go to the committee,” said Capone. Councillors promised to schedule that meeting “as soon as possible.” Ward 3 Councillor/ Council President Anthony DiPierro apologized for the delay and promised at Tuesday’s rally that the “rule will be changed” and such a delay would “never happen again.” The council asked members of the local immigrant community and the Everett Police Department to attend a Public Safety Committee meeting to discuss immigration and safety issues.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE–Friday, December 1, 2017

STUDENTS | FROM PAGE 6 of the LOOK bill conference committee and Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Education. “It will empower parents and educators to make the most effective educational decisions, based on each student’s individual needs. And it includes safeguards to ensure English learners don’t fall between the cracks … Thank you to Rep. Sánchez and Sen. DiDomenico for introducing this critical legislation, and to all the advocates who’ve pushed for it for so many years. Thanks also go to my conference committee co-chair, Rep. Peisch, and all the members of our conference committee for their dedication to fixing our state’s failed one-sizefits-all model with an effective, bipartisan solution.” “I would like to thank the primary sponsors of the legislation, Chairman Sánchez and Senator DiDomenico, for insisting that we

address the needs of the growing English language learner population in the Commonwealth, and my fellow conferees for their hard work … The legislation permits districts to choose English Learner programs that best fit the needs of their students, while ensuring those programs will be of the highest quality. This combination of flexibility and high standards will allow all students to achieve a level of English proficiency so that they can access the academic success for which Massachusetts students are known,” said Representative Alice Peisch (D-Wellesley), House Chair of the Joint Committee on Education. “The Commonwealth has a responsibility to each and every one of its students to give them the resources to succeed,” said Senator Patrick O’Connor (R-Weymouth), a member of the conference committee who also sits on the Joint Committee on Education. “This bill gives English Learners more opportunities to simultaneously become proficient in their studies as well as in the English language. These opportunities are reinforced by affording local school districts the flexibility to implement programs that they believe

Page 25 work best … by giving parents a choice in what course they believe is best for their child, and by giving the Department of Elementary and Secondary Education [ESE] the tools they need to efficiently implement and monitor English Language curriculum. I am confident that we will now be able to effectively serve our entire student population for the future success of the Commonwealth.” This bill makes changes in several areas: It expands on the current mandate requiring schools to use Sheltered English Immersion (SEI) by giving schools the flexibility to establish programs based on the diverse needs of their students. Under this legislation, school districts can maintain current SEI programming or choose to implement an alternative instructional program that meets federal and state standards. In addition, this bill supports parental choice and involvement by expanding the role of Parental Advisory Councils and allowing parents the flexibility to choose programs that best meet their child’s needs. To better identify and assist EL, this legislation requires greater tracking of academic performance and enhanced review of programs. Furthermore, this legislation directs ESE to develop additional guidelines and supports for school districts. Recognizing bilingualism and biliteracy as valuable strengths for students in a 21st century world, this legislation establishes a state Seal of Biliteracy. The seal will be awarded by participating school districts to students who have attained a high level of proficiency in English, and one or more foreign languages. On November 15, the Senate enacted this bill and it was laid before the Governor for his signature.

Of Lynnfield and a native of Everett died in Lynn on November 24, 2017. He was born in Everett on May 21, 1934 and was the son of the late Mi-

chael and Mary (Manotta) Formosi. He was raised in Everett and was a graduate of Everett High School where he was a standout in both Football and Baseball. He later attended and graduated from Boston University where he continued his Baseball career and then on to semi-pro Baseball. He later earned a Masterâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s Degree in Science from Syracuse University. Mr. Formosi remained active in athletics and helped establish the Football program at Arlington Catholic High School where he coached for many years. He retired as a teacher from the Pickering Junior High School of Lynn. He was also an avid gardener.

He was the beloved husband of Flora M. (McLaughlin) Formosi and the loving father of William H. Formosi of Groveland, Catherine M. Formosi of Stoneham, Michael H. Formosi of Amherst, Andrea M. Burke of So. Boston and Linda M. McCormick of Lynnfield. He was the devoted grandfather of Katie, Nick, Emma, Jack, Colin, Keeva and Malachy. He was also the brother of the late Eva Covino, Virginia Roberts, Josephine Fordi and Frances Kerns. His Funeral was held from the McDonald Funeral Home in Wakefield on Wednesday followed by a Funeral Mass in St. Maria Goretti Church in Lynnfield.

MASSACHUSETTS ANTI-LAPSE STATUTE s a matter of good drafting A when it comes to Wills, the drafter should always specify whether the legacy will lapse if the beneficiary does not survive the testator, and whether there is an alternate beneficiary in default. It is also a very good idea to have contingent beneficiaries on your IRA, 401(k), life insurance policy, annuity policies, etc. Under Massachusetts General Laws (MGL) Chapter 190B, Section 2-603, commonly known as the â&#x20AC;&#x153;anti-lapseâ&#x20AC;?statute, if a legacy is to a grandparent or a lineal descendant of a grandparent of the testator, and that beneficiary predeceases the testator, the issue (i.e., children or grandchildren) of the deceased beneficiary will take the legacy. If they are all of the same degree of kinship, then they will all take equally. If they are not all of the same degree of kinship, those of the more remote degree take by right of representation. Lineal descendants of a grandparent include adopted children. If a beneficiary isâ&#x20AC;&#x153;notâ&#x20AC;?related by blood or adoption to the testator, and there is no alternate taker in default, the legacy willâ&#x20AC;&#x153;lapseâ&#x20AC;?and fall into the residue of the estate. (Wellman v. Carter, 286 Mass. 237, 255 [1934]). Under MGL Chapter 190B, Section 2-604(b), if a residuary gift to a residuary beneficiary fails, then such share will pass to the other residuary beneficiaries proportionally.

As is usually the case with statutory presumptions, the statutory presumptions found in the anti-lapse statute are designed to approximate what the legislature believes the testatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s intent most likely would have been if the testator had specifically addressed the subject. It is better practice in drafting a Will to specify, for each gift, whether the gift is to pass to the beneficiaryâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s issue if the beneficiary does not survive the testator, or whether the gift is to be only â&#x20AC;&#x153;if he or she survives me.â&#x20AC;? Issue would include children and grandchildren. For example: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give the sum of $10,000 to Jim Bowie, if he survives me.â&#x20AC;? If Jim does not survive the testator, the $10,000 legacy will lapse. The testator could also request the following provision: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I give the sum of $10,000 to Jim Bowie, if he survives me.

If Jim Bowie is not living at the time of my death, I give the sum of $10,000 to his children who survive me, the issue of any deceased child to take their parentâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s share by right of representation.â&#x20AC;? If Jim does not survive the testator, and has one son living at the time of his death, his son will receive the $10,000 legacy. If both Jim Bowie and his son are not living at the time of the testatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s death, but Jimâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s grandson is living, his grandson will receive the $10,000 legacy. In this instance the gift will not lapse and fall into the residuary estate. The residuary estate is that part of the testatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate that is not specifically bequeathed or devised to an individual or entity or that part of the testatorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s estate that includes bequests or devises to individuals or entities that have â&#x20AC;&#x153;lapsed.â&#x20AC;? Right of representation (or â&#x20AC;&#x153;per stirpesâ&#x20AC;? as the two phrases are used interchangeably) means that eachâ&#x20AC;&#x153;branchâ&#x20AC;?of your descendants will share equally. For example, if you die having had three children, with one child having two children, one child having three children and the third child having four children, but one child had predeceased you, your estate will still be divided equally among three â&#x20AC;&#x153;branchesâ&#x20AC;? or â&#x20AC;&#x153;stalks.â&#x20AC;? If the child who predeceased you was the one with four children, his four children will share equally in one third of the estate.

BUDGET | FROM PAGE 1 last fiscal year, while two-family and three-family residences on average rose $50,000. Given this surge in home prices, the average tax bill under the new rate will be as follows: Single-family home: $4,503.30, given an average evaluation of $326,800 (FY 17 average was $4,144.28 on a $287,000 evaluation); Two-family home: $6,107.30, given an average evaluation of $443,200 (FY 17 average was $5,666.25 on a $392,400 evaluation); and Three-family home: $7,092.57, given an average evaluation of $514,700 (FY 17 average was $6,697.27 on a $463,800 evaluation). The council also voted to approve a 25-percent residential exemption, which provides a 25-percent discount of the average residential value to owner-occupied residences, excepting vacant land and residential properties that aren’t used as the owner’s primary residence. There are 4,094 residential parcels (a little under half of the 8,544 total) that qualify for a residential exemption. For homeowners who qualify for a residential exemption, the average rates would be as follows: Single-family home: $3,067.69 (FY 17 average was $2,807.11); Two-family home: $4,329.09 (FY 17 average was $4,671.69); and Three-family home: $5,360.10 (FY 17 average was $5,656.96). The council voted to apply a $12.5 million payment from Wynn Boston Harbor to offset the tax rate. According to the City of Everett, that money shaved $3 per $1,000 off the residential tax rate and $6 per $1,000 of the CIP rate.

City to suspend parking meters during holiday season

M

ayor Carlo DeMaria and the Office of the Parking Clerk are happy to announce the suspension of parking meter fees for a period during the holiday season. From Friday, December 1 to Saturday, December 30, all parking meters in Everett will be free of charge. Mayor DeMaria encourages everyone to take advantage of the free parking and consider Everettâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s businesses and restaurants first when choosing holiday destinations. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Small businesses help to drive our economy, and I hope that â&#x20AC;Ś people will shop local,â&#x20AC;? Mayor DeMaria stated. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We all know that each dollar you spend at a small independent business returns three times more money to a local economy than one spent at a chain, or 50 times more than buying online. That generates a lasting impact in our local economy. I wish you all a Happy Holiday season and donâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t forget to shop local!â&#x20AC;?
