FY2018 budget proposal maintains fiscal discipline while making key investments By Mayor Brian Arrigo

O

n Monday night, I submitted to the City Council my proposal for the Fiscal Year 2018 budget. In the coming weeks, I look forward to a wide-ranging conversation with the Council. This year’s budget continues the progress made last year toward putting Re-

vere on sound fiscal footing and making strategic investments in the future of our city. • Maintaining fiscal discipline: This year’s budget proposal continues to hold the line on unnecessary expenses, ensuring that we are delivering city services as efficiently as possible.

• The budget includes salary increases negotiated with the DPW, police and fire unions. In spite of these mandated raises, overall non-school spending increases were held under 3%. • No use of stabilization funds: The proposed budget does not tap into rainy day funds at all. Additionally, we added $1 million in free cash to our reserves this year. It is critical to ensure that our reserves remain strong in the event of an economic downturn. • Continued investment

evere Beach is at the top of the class in terms of water quality, according to a report card recently released by a local environmental organization. Revere received a 98 percent on primar y beach safety in the Beach Water Quality Report Card released by environmental advocacy organization Save the Harbor/Save the Bay. The report card is based on water quality data collected during the 2016 beach season on 15 public beaches in 10 communities, including Lynn, Swampscott, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull. “ This year ’s report card contains good news for many of our beaches,” said Save the Harbor’s spokesman, Bruce Berman. “Howev-

er, 2016 was a very dry year, with just 5.3 inches of rain and one large storm with over one inch of rain compared to the 10.2 inches we had in 2015 and the 13 inches of precipitation we expect in a typical beach season. Though the annual re-

T

he Revere City Council discussed the residency requirement for city employees once again at the June 5 City Council meeting. The council placed on file an appointment for Public Safety Information Technology Professional position on May 22 because the applicant, Tab Bandit, is from Saugus. Mayor Brian Arrigo said there were comments during that City Council meeting that upset him, namely the notion that he constantly is asking for residency waivers, a comment he believed was misleading. He pointed out that he has hired 39 people and 37 of those people live in Revere. The two employees who required waivers are Reuben Cantor of the IT Department and Omar Boukili of the Mayor’s Office. “I am here every day to make

sure I provide the best services for the city,” he said. “For me to do that, I need to hire the best and brightest.” Even so, the mayor went on to affirm that he is committed to hiring Revere residents for city jobs. “I don’t want to give waivers out. The best thing for me is to hire Revere people,” he said. Ward Four Councillor Patrick Keefe said he was ok with hiring people outside of Revere if they were the best candidates. “I prefer to see Revere residents get jobs,” he said. “I want to see the most qualified applicants getting jobs as well.” Keefe voted in favor of Cantor and Boukili for their waivers but not Bandit. Keefe said he felt that with the other two residency waivers he was more aware of the of the applicants’ credentials and why the city wanted them and needed a waiver. He said he felt that he

didn’t know that much about Bandit. “I want to be more prepared when I come to council,” he said. Councillor-at-Large Anthony Zambuto said he is going to work on changing the residency requirement to a residency preference. According to Zambuto, in years past the council has ignored that requirement unless it is an election year. Ward Five Councillor John Powers agreed. “The people of the city voted for you and myself to represent them to the best of our ability,” he said. “To give someone a job just because they are from Revere and not the best applicant is the wrong thing to do.” The council agreed to have conversations about the requirement in the future. The council placed Bandit’s application on file and he will not be taking the position.

State Rep. RoseLee Vincent says bill to ban Native American mascots at Massachusetts schools “lacks common sense” By Mark E. Vogler

S

tate Rep. RoseLee Vincent said she believes Saugus residents won’t have to worry about renaming their beloved Sachem sport teams. “I don’t believe the legislation has any legs,” Vincent, a Revere Democrat who represents part of Saugus (Precincts 3 and 10), said of proposed legislation that would prohibit Massachusetts schools from using Native American mascots. “I would be opposed to that bill. I received quite a few emails from Saugus residents who aren’t happy about it,” she said. “If it came to the House floor, I don’t believe it would pass. I knew that when I saw it. Common sense should prevail. Unfortunately, a lot of people have lost common sense,” she said. One of Massachusetts’ most powerful politicians also stands in the way of the proposed statewide ban against Native American mascots. The legislation (S 291), which was the subject of a public hearing in Boston this week before the Legislature’s Education Committee, drew criticism from state Senate President Stanley Rosenberg. “I think this is something the

cities and towns should decide for themselves,” the North Hampton Democrat told WGBH Radio this week. “I don’t think the state needs to regulate it. We regulate enough things; it should be left up to the communities.” In an interview with The Saugus Advocate yesterday, Vincent also considered the matter a home rule issue that shouldn’t involve state government. And even under the unlikely circumstances that the legislation did become law, Vincent said Saugus should be exempt. “In Saugus’ case, I believe it’s paying tribute to the town’s rich Native American history. “I never felt -- during my years in representing Saugus -- that it was anything but a tribute by a town that’s deep into its history,” she said. “I don’t understand what the big deal is unless it’s an offensive term. And Saugus, certainly, is just the opposite -- a matter of pride. I feel sometimes we try way too hard to be politically correct,” she said. Vincent said she’s also troubled by the statewide implications for Massachusetts, which uses Native Americans in the state symbol and on flags across

the Commonwealth. “A lot of our Native American history. We have so many symbols. Would we have to remove the Native American symbol on our state seal,” Vincent said. “I would be opposed to that sym-

410 Revere Beach Blvd. Revere * (781) 284-9129

bol being stripped of the Native American. Nor should we be removing a symbol in a community. Just consider the cost factor of replacing it. Just in the state building. That seal is everywhere. It keeps our heritage alive.”

Local entertainer Big D partners with MHSA to combat homelessness

ocal entertainer Derek Cummings, professionally known as Big D, has partnered with the Massachusetts Housing and Shelter Alliance to help the homeless in the Commonwealth releasing a single for download. On June 9, the entertainer will release a single titled “Help The Homeless” for download on the iTunes store, all of the profits from which will be donated directly to the MHSA. “Money, fame or success should not define you as a person,” said Cummings. “How much effort you put in today, and how you make others feel is what really matters. Listening to ‘Help the Homeless’ helps us realize that we are all the same, and it’s all about helping each other.” Cummings writes and performs in English, Spanish, and Portuguese with equal facility. He has blended them into a new style of music that defies most regular descriptions not rap, rock, pop, or

Derek “Big D” Cummings world, but actually a rich mix all of them rolled into a fresh new sound he calls, The Boston Beat. Big D feels it’s more inclusive and representative of the people in New England, most specifically the Boston area.

T

he annual FUN-damental Basketball Camp, open to boys and girls in the local area, will be held from July 24-July 28 at the Immaculate Conception Parish Center, which is located at 59 Summer St. in Everett. The camp will be held between the hours of 9:00 a.m. and 1:00 p.m. for boys and girls entering grades 3 thru 9 as of September 2017. The cost of the camp is $100. Tony Ferullo, boys’ varsity basketball coach at Mystic Valley Regional

Charter School in Malden, will be the camp director. The purpose of the camp is as follows: • To provide all campers with the fundamental tools to help them become better basketball players; • To create a positive atmosphere where the camper will learn and have fun at the same time; and • To instill the spirit of the game into all campers, and inspire them to con-

tinue playing the game either competitively or just for fun. Each camper – who will receive a t-shirt, certificate and medal – will participate in various drills, scrimmages and individual contests. Special guests will speak and share their personal basketball tips. An awards ceremony will take place on the last day of the camp, and parents and friends are welcome to attend.

EPINEPHRINE BULK PURCHASE PROGRAM (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an amendment creating a Municipal Epinephrine Bulk Purchase Program that will allow cities and towns to save money on their purchase of epinephrine for municipal first responders agencies and schools. Epinephrine is a drug that treats life-threatening allergic reactions caused by a variety of things including an insect bite or sting, food, medication and latex. Amendment supporters said the cost of a pair of lifesaving EpiPens has skyrocketed from $100 in 2006 to $608 in 2017. They noted that this price gouging by the maker Mylan has made the EpiPen unaffordable to many people who need them and has sadly resulted in deaths. They argued that banding together and bulk-purchasing allows the government to negotiate with the manufacturer to get the lowest price. (A “ Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes $1 MILLION FOR EMERGENCY FOOD ASSISTANCE (S 3) Senate 37-0, approved an amendment increasing funding for the Massachusetts Emergency Food Assistance Program (MEFAP) by $1 million (from $16.5 million to $17.5 million). MEFAP provides quality and healthy

foods and locally grown fresh produce to a statewide network of over 800 emergency food providers who distribute the food to low-income families. Amendment supporters said this program, established in 1995, has fed hundreds of thousands of people. They said that projected federal government rollback of protections for the state’s neediest requires the state to step up and make up the shortfall. (A “ Yes” vote is for the amendment.) Sen. Joseph Boncore Yes $2 MILLION FOR LEGAL SERVICES FOR INDIGENT (S 3) Senate 38-0, approved an increase of $2 million (from $18 million to $20 million) in funding for the Massachusetts Legal Assistance Corporation (MLAC). The MLAC provides le gal representation for indigent and disadvantaged residents. Amendment supporters said these services ensure equal access to the justice system for thousands of below-poverty level Massachusetts residents including accused criminals, the poor, seniors, battered women, ten-

ing all funds to support free events and programs on the metropolitan beaches in Lynn, Nahant, Revere, Winthrop, East Boston, South Boston, Dorchester, Quincy and Hull this summer. Consequently, all of the grants for the Better Beaches Program in 2017 come from the proceeds of the Harpoon Shamrock Splash, where 250 brave souls jumped into the cold waters of M Street Beach in South Boston in March to raise money for free programs on their beach. “In May the House and the Senate restored funding for this program for FY2018,” said Save the Harbor/Save the Bay’s President, Patty Foley. She urged the Governor to “fully fund Metropolitan Beaches line item in the budget, and to make the funds available as soon as possible, so we can continue to invest in these free programs, which are so important to the region’s kids and families.” This year’s Better Beaches Program Grants will fund concerts and sand-sculpting competitions, beach festivals, movie nights, free kayak and aquatics instruction, Art on the Shore and Storytelling by the Sea on public beaches from Nahant to Nantasket. “We are especially pleased that Intertidal Artist Andres

Amador will join us on the beach again this summer,” said Save the Harbor’s spokesman, Bruce Berman. He is looking forward to the Boston Circus Guild’s performances “featuring fire-juggling clowns, and of course the Pokémon Go Festival, though I understand it is not a ‘thing’ anymore.” “Though all of us at DCR are, of course, disappointed that we can’t help fund the program this year, we will continue to provide staff time and other resources to support these events,” said Susan Hamilton, DCR’s Director of Park Operations/Metropolitan Beaches Commissioner. She added, “Thanks to our partners at Save the Harbor/ Save the Bay for helping to make this summer a great one for the region’s residents and visitors from across the Commonwealth.” At the event on the Fish Pier, Save the Harbor/Save the Bay thanked Metropolitan Beaches Commission Co-Chairs State Senator Tom McGee and State Representative RoseLee Vincent and the legislative and community members of the Commission for making this great program possible.

(A “ Yes” vote is for the amendment). Sen. Joseph Boncore 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.

The district received results from the test in December which led them to believe that they were in the clear, though a recent, more thorough examination of those results convinced administrators to take some precautionary measures. According to Superintendent Dr. Dianne Kelly, in five

of those cases, the school system was recommended to flush its water fixtures for 30 seconds each morning before use. However, the school district has decided to turn the water off of these units and replace them over the summer. “ We we re to l d t h i s i s above and beyond what we have to do,” Kelly said at the School Committee meeting on May 23. “We are happy

to do it.” In two other cases, the amount of lead is too high to flush each morning. One of these units is a water fountain in a Lincoln School classroom and another is a sink in a classroom in Revere High School. Thankfully, both of these units are already not used. The water fountain is too high for students to reach at Lincoln School. The sink

in the classroom was used years ago for a home economics class but the room is now used as a special education classroom. Also, the faucet has been re moved from the sink for years. However, the district is taking the extra step of removing these units permanently. “We want to do what is best for our students,” Kelly said.

Revere softball team suffers heartbreaking loss in state tournament

THANKS FOR A GREAT SEASON: Seven stellar seniors graduated from the RHS Patriots softball team this season: Andrea Lauria, Victoria Puopolo, Samantha Woodman, Vanessa Puopolo, Elizabeth Lake, Giana Berkowitz and Tia Fichara. (Advocate file photo)

he Revere High School softball team couldn’t do what they did in the regular season and beat Medford in the post-season, as the Patriots fell, 7-5, in extra innings in the first round of the state tournament last Friday at Griswold Park. Revere bested the Mustangs, 5-4, in the regular season, but the playoffs were a different story. Medford garnered a 1-0 lead in the first inning, scoring off a sacrifice fly to right. Patriots pitcher Olivia McManus, the go-to star ter throughout the campaign, then gave up a solo home run to Medford’s Kimberly Scanlon to start the fourth inning and make it 2-0. Medford added another run on a passed ball later in the inning. “We started shaky, but,

down 3-0, we didn’t give up,” said Patriots coach Joe Ciccarello. “We made a comeback.” Revere took advantage of a few fielding errors in the fifth and sixth innings to mount a rally. They scored three in those two innings to get back in the game, as Medford narrowly escaped by tagging out Jordan Sullivan at third, who was trying to stretch a double into a triple. “Same as we did a few times this season, we committed some base-running errors,” Ciccarello said. “But the chances were there. We had a ton.” Revere managed to force extra innings, though the game ended in the ninth as Scanlon made the Patriots pay once more. She converted an RBI triple to put the game away and hand

Last year the beach also received a 98 percent score, and its sixyear average is 95 percent. The highest grades received by Revere Beach in the past

six years were in 2014 and 2012, when it received 100 percent. Its lowest grade occurred in 2011: 88 percent. King’s Beach in Lynn and Swampscott and Tenean Beach in Dorchester have consistently been at the bottom of the report card, with scores below 85 percent. However, Save the Harbor has installed rain gauges and

the Patriots a loss in the first round of the post-season for the first time in Ciccarello’s tenure. Ciccarello said he was proud of his team’s efforts throughout the season, especially since he lost so many starters from last year. “It was supposed to be a rebuilding year but we made the playoffs, won as many games and scored more runs,” Ciccarello said. “That’s retooling, not rebuilding … There were tears obviously, it was sad for the team, but I just wanted to communicate to the seniors that we’re proud of them and their character. Winning is important to our program, but having pride in representing Revere once you put the jersey on is what matters most.” Revere graduates seven seniors: Vanessa Puopolo (Mount Ida College), Victoflow meters at King’s Beach to help the community evaluate and address the persistent pollution problems that close that beach nearly one in five days in a typical year.

practice. Lisa Thomas, one of two Tewksbury residents who petitioned Sen. Barbara L’Italien to file legislation that would impose the ban, told the Joint Committee on Education Tuesday that she grew concerned the town’s Redmen mascot would teach her children that “stereotypes and caricatures were OK.” Jason Packineau, an enrolled citizen of the Three Affiliated Tribes of North Dakota and community coordinator at the Harvard University Native American Program, discussed what he described as the impact of such mascots on his own life. The Lincoln resident said people call him “chief” or “savage,” and strangers ask to touch his long hair, which he wore in braids Tuesday. Following the Gill-Montague Regional School Committee’s decision Tuesday to retire its Native American mascot and Indians name for its sporting teams, take a look at other Massachusetts high schools maintaining similar logos, sporting team names and imagery. “Native people want to control their identity,” he said, asking the committee to remember that the mascots were not created by Native Americans. While bill supporters (S 291) said the portrayal of Native Americans as mascots can be harmful and disrespectful to people they are intended to represent, opponents of the ban said the mascots honor historical relationships with Native American tribes and have become sources of town pride over the years. “The town has an affinity and a great relationship with this name,” said Rep. Jim Miceli, who represents Tewksbury, citing a

T

well-known statue in the town “of an Indian brave overlooking the community,” and the recent opening of a bowling alley and recreation complex named after the Wamesit village. “I’ve lived in Billerica essentially all my life,” Lombardo wrote. “Never, in over three decades have I ever witnessed the name ‘Billerica Indians’ used and received by residents in anyway other than with pride and joy.” The Massachusetts Teachers Association supports the bill, and the union’s Shauna Manning said mascots do not represent the“rich and complex history”of Native American people and do not acknowledge a “long history of genocide from the United States toward Native Americans.” “We feel that Native American mascots are demeaning and perpetuate a myth that Native Americans are relics of the past who no longer exist,” she said. Residents of Amesbury, Melrose and Winchester testified in support of the bill, saying they disagreed with their towns’ use of Native American mascots. Miceli, a Wilmington Democrat, told the committee the issue is a priority in Tewksbury, where the school committee in March 2016 voted 4-1 to keep its mascot after hearing support from residents. “I would love to see this bill killed, and I’m looking around and I think that’s a possibility,” Miceli said. Billerica Republican Rep. Marc Lombardo changed his Twitter profile picture on Tuesday to the Billerica Memorial High School Indians logo and described the bill in written testimony as “political correctness run amok.” Editor’s Note: The State House News Service contributed to this report
