Mayor proposes banning marijuana shops from operating in city By Brendan Clogston

T

he city may ban marijuana shops from opening within its borders, if an ordinance pro-

posed by Mayor Carlo DeMaria is approved. In a letter submitted to the City Council on Monday night, DeMaria argued that the intention of the legislation

is to “promote both community health and appropriate economic development.” “A majority of Everett voters did not support the legal-

ization of recreational marijuana. Every day, we are still confronting issues of young people misusing drugs or alcohol, and I am concerned about the risk of diversion if recreational marijuana is sold commercially in our community,” said Mayor DeMaria. “Lastly, we have the positive momentum now to attract vibrant businesses that will increase our quality of life and contribute positively to our city, and I do not believe that recreational pot shops would add value for our residents. The State of Massachusetts legalized recreational mari-

juana by ballot initiative with a little under 54 percent of the vote last November. In July, however, Governor Charlie Baker signed a law regulating its sale which, among other things, allowed municipal governments in communities that voted against the initiative to ban pot shops from operating within their borders. (Communities that voted for the initiative would have to pass a local ballot initiative to institute similar bans.) Individuals in those communities may still possess and grow marijuana

vironment that aligns with the mayor’s vision and goals, while creating a compelling culture for the city and our employees. I have called Everett home for the past 23 years, and it is important for me to deliver the best possible service to the residents.” Mayor DeMaria over the past several years has improved city government and ensured the most efficient use of taxpayers’ dollars by introducing the following: • Everett 311 – provides a single point of contact for residents for city government services • Offset property tax bills by $8 million in 2017, largely with funding secured through the Wynn Boston Harbor development’s Host Community Agreement • Refinanced $14 million of existing debt to reduce borrowing costs, which resulted in a savings of $1.3 million • Enhanced City of Everett website to allow citizens to access budget documents to better understand how the budget and city government works • Hired a Business Manager within the City Services De-

~ Political Announcement ~

Michael Marchese announces for Councilor-at-Large Seat

I

am pleased to announce my candidacy for re-election to the Everett City Council, as your Councilor-at-Large. My family has played an active and involved role in our community for generations. The Marchese family arrived in Everett in the 1890’s. My grandparents raised a family in Everett while working hard to sponsor new family members to come to the United States. My parents raised four sons and were a very close and respectful family. My Dad built a very successful business which exists today. Understanding my obligation to give back to a community that has given me so many opportunities, I have served you at City Hall for almost 20 years. Throughout my time in public office, I have been guided by the belief that being honest and independent is the only way to represent your interests at City Hall. I am not beholden to campaign benefactors, nor am I beholden to the establishment at City Hall today. My vote is not reliant on jobs for family and friends, and I am committed to giving you the unvarnished truth when

Michael Marchese

it comes to the affairs at City Hall. In addition to my tenure in public office I have been active in and supported a number of community organizations for the past 30 years. This includes, the E-Club; Knights; Elks; Huskies; Cal Ripken; Little League; Friends of the Everett Libraries.

Everett has witnessed dramatic change over the years – much positive, but some negative. I have always viewed my role as your representative to be that of an advocate, ensuring that my decisions were in the City’s best interests, and were never made simply by serving as a rubber stamp for those in power at City Hall. That exists today. Establishment governing that exists at City Hall today. More than at any time, the era in which we live requires greater independence on the City Council – not less. The impending Wynn development; the demand to enhance our public safety needs; the commitment to make our neighborhoods great again; and the desire to provide our children with a world class education; all require advocacy at City Hall that is not beholden to family members who work there, or campaign donors who do business there. Please vote on Tuesday, Sept. 19, 2017. The polls are open from 7 a.m. to 8 p.m. I am the only candidate in this race with the experience and independence capable of serving as your Council-

or-at-Large during these historic times. I am the only candidate in this race who is not beholden to the establishment at City Hall. I am the only candidate in this race who is committed to continuing honest, independent representation as your Council-

or-at-Large. On Tuesday, Sept. 19, I respectfully ask for your vote as Councilor-at-Large to allow me to continue to be your honest and independent voice on the City Council. I CARE FOR EVERETT / I CARE FOR YOU!

A call upon Congress to act on DACA By Mayor Carlo DeMaria

L

ast week the president rescinded the DACA, or Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals, program created by executive order in 2012 and called upon Congress to act within 6 months to pass legislation instead. If Congress does not enact legislation within that time frame, deportations of young people previously registered through DACA may begin. I join hundreds of elected officials, without regard to political party or belief, in calling on Congress to act quickly. Immigration reform is long overdue. And the 800,000 young people across the country registered through the DACA program, 8,000 of whom reside here in Massachusetts, now face uncertain futures. These young people arrived here as children and grew up in the United States, and through the program, have registered

with the government, passed background and biometrics checks, received state identification cards and in some cases driver’s licenses, enrolled in college, held jobs and paid taxes, and even purchased homes. Several hundred of them even enlisted in the military through a 2014 program of the Department of Defense, designed to recruit those with specialized skills – like fluency in critical foreign languages. Every two years, the DACA program required them to reapply and pay a $495 fee for a work permit and a two-year deportation stay. It required them to be enrolled in school, or have already completed school. It did not provide amnesty or a path to citizenship. They cannot vote. They cannot receive any federal benefits, like Social Security payments, food stamps, or college financial aid. Beyond consequences for the young people themselves, there are real consequences for our

Mayor Carlo DeMaria

economy if this program is not acted upon by Congress quickly as part of immigration reform. As a group, they contribute about $1.2 billion annually in tax revenue, and a study by the Center for American Progress found that the loss of DACA workers would reduce the country’s GDP by a staggering $433 billion over the next decade. For all of these reasons, I call upon Congress to act swiftly to craft bipartisan, sensible legislation that will allow the benefits of the DACA program to continue.

Preliminary Councillor-at-Large election – Tuesday, Sept. 19 By The Advocate

Pioneer Charter School assures Council new Village school project impacts will be minimal By Brendan Clogston

P

ioneer Charter School of Science officials appeared before

the City Council to explain to councillors – though not to seek their approval – the school’s plan to convert the former Teleflex building in

Everett Village into a new school complex for k-8 students. Pioneer Charter, which currently operates out of the former Immaculate Conception School building on Summer Street, announced at a Planning Board meeting earlier this month that it intends to create a second facility at 7-9 Plymouth St. as a part of an initiative to boost enrollment. The Planning Board, while nervous about certain aspects of the project – particularly the notion of shuttling several hundred students daily in and out of a dense neighborhood – soon discovered that their hands were tied in reviewing it. Under the Dover Amendment, which exempts certain structures, such as schools and churches, from

most local zoning, the project does not require any site plan review. Theoretically, certain zoning ordinances like building height, lot coverage or parking could apply to a project protected by the Dover Amendment, but none apply to Pioneer Charter’s plan, given the school’s intention to work entirely within the existing footprint. The Planning Board approved the project, but city councillors, sharing some of the Planning Board’s concerns, asked to meet with school officials at their next meeting to get some answers about the project. Pioneer Charter obliged the councillors Monday evening, as officials presented councillors with an overview of the project, its public safety plans and

its traffic projections. “Knowing the density of the Village area, knowing that that’s the home of many people, knowing that bringing this number of students in transport trips could potentially impose an impact on that community – the school is very cognizant of that. They’ve developed a transportation plan to deal with it, said the school’s Attorney, David O’Neil. At the peak population of the school, the school is expected to be served by a staff of 50 with a student population of 500+. However, the school maintains that the traffic impact of the school on the neighborhood will be minimal. Many students, they suspect, will walk to the school; parking at the location for staff is ample enough that there is “not going to be any parking in the neighborhood; there’s simply no need for it,” according to O’Neil, and bus routes will skirt traveling through the Village altogether. “There will be no bus routes through the Village,” said O’Neil. “The bus routes proceed around Santilli Circle, Route 16, come around the rotary, enter back in Bizzaro Lane, make an entry into the existing curb cut into the Teleflex facility, fully load and unload on the premises of the school. No use of the public ways, no queuing of busses.” At peak population, the school is expected to draw between four and five bus trips. Given the younger age of the population, none of the students will be driving. Councillors, while pleased with the information, remained nervous about putting a school in such a dense neighborhood. “I was blown away to hear this proposal,” said Ward 6 Councillor Michael McLaughlin. “We all know that neighborhood. Mr. O’Neil talks about getting four to five busses in a day through Bizzaro Lane. We all know that the rotary in the morning – you cannot pass. So now you’re going to fight to get busses through the already over-congested area. … There are so many underlying issues. I respect what they’re trying to do. I respect that they’re growing … but this is the densest community in Everett. Homes are on top of each other down there as it is today. You’re going to add over 540 students over, I would say, a very short amount of time.” While McLaughlin pressed school officials on certain details, he was under no illusions about the council’s options. “They’re coming to the Village,” said McLaughlin. “We cannot stop them from coming in. What we can do is protect the residents and protect the children.” School officials stated that they

History of a Rivalry: Everett High School vs. Xaverian Brothers O f all the great things a high school athletic program can achieve, none is more enviable than sky-high sustainability. We don’t mean a run of titles over four of five years. We’re not even talking about a decade of dominance. We mean generational greatness. We’re referring to those programs that need entire cases, not shelves, for their trophies. We’re talking about football programs like Everett High School (EHS) and Xaverian Brothers High School (XBHS). How not to think about these two powerhouses at this moment? The Hawks came to town for Saturday’s Homecoming extravaganza without longtime coach Charlie Stevenson on the sidelines – a fact that demands a moment

of nostalgia. The game was the 20th meeting between the two schools since John DiBiaso began resurrecting the Crimson Tide in the early 1990s. It was their third meeting in 12 months, including last December’s Division 1 Super Bowl (won by Everett, 21-7). If you crave symmetry, there’s this: With Saturday’s 38-7 dismantling of XBHS, DiBiaso’s Tide are now 10-10 lifetime vs. their foes from Westwood. A fitting record between two teams that hoard Division 1 Super Bowl trophies. From 2003 until his retirement at the end of the 2016 season, Stevenson won seven Super Bowls. DiBiaso has a jaw-dropping 11 (and counting) since 1997. But there is another, even more striking fact that illus-

g!

trates how consistently great these teams have been for the past quarter century. Consider that since 1994, there have been only two years in which the Massachusetts Interscholastic Athletic Association (MIAA) Division 1 Super Bowl lineup hasn’t included Everett and/or Xaverian: 2000 and 2008. That’s it. Saturday marked the first time that DiBiaso looked across a field at the Hawks and didn’t see Coach Stevenson. We must note Stevenson’s retirement with a quick salute here. He was a great coach by any and all measures, leader of powerhouses from the early 1990s through 2016. It should also be said that he epitomized the ideal of going out on top. The Hawks were a dazzling 44-4 over his final

four seasons, reaching four consecutive Super Bowls and winning two of them (2014 and 2015). When it comes to playoffs and Super Bowls, the very best Everett and Xaverian teams have tended to flex their muscles at the expense of the other. Of their eight postseason games, only one can be safely labeled a classic. That was the 1998 Super Bowl in which XBHS snatched a 23-21 win from Everett courtesy of a last-second field goal. Other than that memorable game in 1998, the Crimson Tide and Hawks have traded haymakers. For example, Everett beat the X-Men in Division 1 semifinal games in 2004 and 2006 by an aggregate score of 67-12. The Hawks, on the other hand, dispatched Everett in Division 1 Super Bowl matchups at Gillette Stadium in 2009 (29zip for Stevenson’s crew) and 2014 (39-28, in an entertaining game featuring Everett’s dynamic Lukas Denis, now at Boston College, and Xaverian wrecking machine Joe Gaziano, now at Northwestern). The two teams have played an always-anticipated non-

league game every September since 2006. Last year’s installment was unquestionably one of the very best, as Xaverian won a 17-14 contest in Westwood, with victory coming in the final seconds when an interception deep in Hawks territory ended a frenetic last-second drive by EHS and quarterback Jordan McAfee. Of course, other programs have brought out the best in Everett and XBHS over the past two decades. St. John’s Prep is Xaverian’s chief Catholic Conference rival and Thanksgiving opponent (not to mention a frequent regular- and post-season opponent of Everett’s). Brockton has played memorable Super Bowl games vs. DiBiaso and Stevenson. Bridgewater-Raynham, Barnstable, Central Catholic, and BC High belong on the list. But there’s no disrespect to anyone else to say that EHS and XBHS are the standard-bearers of excellence among the Bay State’s Division 1 football powers. When it comes to winning big over a long period of time, no one has done it better than DiBiaso and Stevenson.

EVERETT HIGH SCHOOL HOMECOMING FIREWORKS & JOHNNY THE K

The Everett Public Schools (EPS) kicked off its 2017 Homecoming in grand fashion, hosting an evening of entertainment on Friday, Sept. 8 featuring renowned children’s entertainer Johnny the K and a spectacular fireworks show. “It was a fantastic way to begin the weekend,” said Superintendent of Schools Frederick F. Foresteire. “Children and families from across the city gathered in Glendale Park for an enjoyable, safe night of fun and celebration. My thanks to everyone who helped organize the night’s program.” Families who arrived early were treated to a live performance by John Kelleher, a.k.a. Johnny the K, who was an EPS teacher for more than 10 years. Since leaving the teaching profession in 1989, John has become a recognized name in the Children’s music industry. Performing more than 200 shows annually, John has attained national and international prominence with highly acclaimed performances across the United States and Canada. John’s dynamic and inspiring programs for young audiences balance timely messages of environmental conservation, cultural diversity, positive behavior, self-esteem, and drug abuse awareness with music, dialogue, visual props, and lots of audience participation. The Everett High School Marching Band also performed for the audience prior to the start of the fireworks show. On Saturday, Everett High School hosted its traditional array of Homecoming events, including a community breakfast in the EHS Cafeteria, the Homecoming Hustle 5K Road Race to raise money for breast cancer research and awareness, a massive parade featuring dozens of bands and performers, and a dominating victory by the Crimson Tide over the Xaverian Hawks.

Willcox gets golden debut for Crimson Tide football By Julian Cardillo Everett football picked up precisely where it left off last season, as the Crimson Tide steamrolled Xaverian, 38-7, in the season opener at Veterans Memorial Stadium on Saturday. The Crimson Tide bested the Hawks, 21-7, in last year’s Super Bowl, but turned up the heat even more as they kicked off the new campaign. Jake Willcox, a junior quarterback who has spent the last two years behind now-University of Connecticut quarterback Jordan McAfee, turned in a sterling performance, picking apart Xaverian like a true high school veteran. Willcox, who had big shoes to fill in replacing McAfee, was dominant. He threw for 306 yards and two touchdowns; he completed 11 of 16 passes; and he dismantled the Hawks, who entered the season ranked second, according to a Boston Globe poll. “He did it himself,” Everett coach John DiBiaso told reporters when asked about Willcox’s performance. “There’s no plan or formula that you use. You just hope that the kid works hard at practice, and he did. He took a lot in and he’ll be the first one to tell you he has a lot of weapons.” Willcox connected with Jason Maitre for a 70-yard touchdown in the first quarter. Jacob Miller ran into the end zone to make the two-point conversion. Miller then doubled the Crimson Tide lead with a two-yard end zone rush in the second, the extra point making it 15-0 at the half. Everett’s defense penned the Hawks in to start the third quarter and got a safety to make it 17-0; on the ensuing drive, the Crimson Tide scored their third touchdown as Wilcox connected with Isaiah Likely in the end zone off a 17-yard pass. Mike Sainristil’s 18yard end zone rush made it 31-0 after the extra point. Jaden Mahabir’s 22-yard run pushed the lead to 38 in the fourth; consolation points came late in the game for Xaverian, who managed to get on the board with Michael Saliba’s 12-yard end zone rush. “It’s a great start against a great team,” said Willcox. “They played hard. We played hard. We were just [better].” Everett will look to continue their positive momentum in Week 2, as they take on Leominster on the road tonight at 7 p.m. Leominster lost to Marlborough in Week 1 and have lost to the Crimson Tide every year since 2004 – except 2016, when the two sides did not play. In preseason ranking The Tide was ranked No. 1 in the Boston Globe polling. After the shellacking of No. 2 Xaverian, there’s no doubt, The Tide is well on its way to another Super Bowl Championship and undefeated season.

DeMaria joins community groups & members for DACA candlelight vigil

O

n Friday, September 8, Mayor Carlo DeMaria joined the Safe and Welcoming Everett Coalition, La Comunidad and other community members at a vigil in response to President Donald Trump’s decision last week to cancel the Deferred Action for Childhood Arrivals (DACA) program. Over 100 attendees gathered together as a community to hear stories and call on Congress to act quickly to help the 800,000 young people across the country registered through the DACA program; 8,000 of them reside in Massachusetts. Mayor DeMaria stated, “These young people arrived here as children and grew up in the United States, and

through the program, have registered with the government, passed background and biometrics checks, received state identification cards and in some cases driver’s licenses, enrolled in college, held jobs and paid taxes, and even purchased homes. For these reasons, I called upon Congress to act swiftly to craft bipartisan, sensible legislation that will allow the benefits of the DACA program to continue.” Earlier in the week, Mayor DeMaria had joined hundreds of elected officials and called on Congress to act swiftly to craft bipartisan, sensible legislation that will allow the benefits of the DACA program to continue.


THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, September 15, 2017 THE HOUSE AND SENATE: There were no roll calls in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call looks at the handful of major legislation that was approved by the Legislature and signed into law so far by Gov. Charlie Baker in 2017. In the first eight months of the 2017 session, only 79 bills out of more than 6,000 filed have been approved by the House and Senate and signed into law by Gov. Charlie Baker. Thirty-five of those were local bills dealing with an individual city or town and 29 were on sick leave banks for individual state workers. Sick leave banks allow employees to voluntarily donate sick, personal or vacation days to a pool for use by ill fellow state workers so they can get paid while on medical leave. Of the 15 remaining, 10 ranged from supplemental budgets and extending simulcast racing to designating May as Seatbelt Awareness Month and the first week in August as Ice Bucket Challenge week. The remaining five are five major key issues that came to a roll call vote in both branches and were signed into law by Gov. Baker. Here they are: $18 MILLION IN PAY HIKES (S 16) On February 2, the House 116-43, Senate 31-9, overrode Gov. Charlie Baker’s veto of an $18 million pay raise package including hikes for senators, representatives, judges, court clerks, the governor and the other five statewide constitutional office holders. The measure increases the salaries of the two leaders who filed the bill, House Speaker Robert DeLeo (D-Winthrop) and Senate President Stan Rosenberg (D-Amherst), by $45,000 from $97,547 to $142,547. The measure also hikes the pay of the Legislature’s two Republican leaders, Sen. Bruce Tarr (R-Gloucester) and Rep. Bradley Jones (R-North Reading) by $37,500 from $85,047 to $122,547. Another provision hikes the salaries of the state’s judges by $25,000 and of court clerks over an 18-month period. The proposal raises the governor’s salary by $33,200, from $151,800 to $185,000; the lieutenant governor by $30,068, from $134,932 to $165,000; secretary of state by $34,738 from $130,262 to $165,000; treasurer by $47,083 from $127,917 to $175,000; auditor by $30,048 from $134,952 to $165,000; and the attorney general by $44,418 from $130,582 to $175,000. It also bans the six constitutional officers and the House speaker and Senate president from earning outside income, other than passive income from investments. “Given the current fiscal outlook for the state, now is not the time to expend additional funds on elected officials’ salaries,” Baker said. “This bill is the result of a hasty process that included little substantive debate or time for public comment.” Supporters said that only $1.4 million is for the legislative pay raises while the remainder is for hikes for constitutional officers, judges and court clerks. They said that the hikes will be entirely paid for from existing funds with no net new cost to taxpayers. They noted many of these legislative salaries are still lower than the average salary of school superintendents and town managers in most communities. The pay raise package made it through the Legislature at lightning speed. It was only Thursday, January 18, when the temporary Joint Committee on Ways and Means held a brief one-hour hearing on a December 2014 report of the Special Advisory Commission on the Compensation of Public Officials. At that point, DeLeo and Rosenberg had not yet appointed members of any committees so a temporary Ways and Means Committee was hastily appointed and assembled for the hearing. The hearing was convened with less than 72-hours-notice to the public. Then just a week later on January 25, a pay raise package was approved. Rosenberg defended the bill. “We followed overall the recommendations of the independent commission, that was appointed two years ago,” he said. “They came back and said that the constitutional officers’ salaries are out of line with national salaries and ought to be increased ... Fair minded people will consider the fact that the stipends for the presiding officers have not changed for 33 years. Who works for the same amount 33 years later?” The commission was chaired by Ira Jackson, Dean of the John W. McCormack Graduate School of Policy and Global Studies at UMass Boston. Other members were from the League of Women Voters, Mass. Taxpayers Foundation, Massachusetts Business Roundtable, University of Massachusetts President’s Office and the

Simmons College of Management. “The Advisory Commission conducted a transparent, open, data-driven review of the current compensation of public officials and developed a series of major reforms and recommendations based on its research, as well as input from the public,” said Jackson. An excerpt from the report sums up the commission’s findings. “After extensive analysis and fact finding, the Special Commission concludes that the compensation of the commonwealth’s constitutional officers and legislative leadership is generally outdated and inadequate.” The report continued, “Massachusetts state government is the instrument through which we govern ourselves as a commonwealth. It is a large and complex organization that provides vital services that affect every citizen, and as such it needs to attract talented, publicly spirited and honest individuals from diverse socio-economic and geographic backgrounds to fulfill its mission of serving every citizen. In recent years, state government has increasingly been asked and expected to provide more and better services with fewer resources. A greater premium is placed on efficiency and effectiveness in government today than in the past, and there is a greater need for modern management practices in all of its aspects.” “The Beacon Hill power brokers robbed the taxpayers,” said Rep. Jim Lyons (R-Andover). “They voted to increase their salaries by over 50 percent. The Republican caucus voted unanimously against this thievery and abuse of power. We must end one-party rule on Beacon Hill.” “This wasn’t myself just thinking during the Christmas holiday that this would be a good thing to do,” said DeLeo. “This is something which I’ve been hearing about for years from constitutional officers. I’ve been hearing from House members and Senate members and an awful lot of folks.” Chip Ford, executive director of Citizens for Limited Taxation, said, “These cynical actions demonstrate that when the leadership and enough beholden members in the Legislature want something badly enough they just take it. Disguising it as something at all legitimate required a whole two days.” Ford continued, “There was little if any trickery and manipulation that didn’t go into this shameless effort on behalf of legislative leadership and others with much to gain.” “Strange — no one’s talking about the effect these raises will have on bringing out more candidates against incumbents,” said Sen. Michael Barrett (D-Lexington) who supported the raises. “It’s going to happen. These are the first salary adjustments in recent memory big enough to draw the interest of potential competitors employed in the private sector today.” Paul Craney, Executive Director of the Massachusetts Fiscal Alliance said, “The move sends the worst type of message. Good work should be rewarded but there’s no good in this. Salaries and pensions will go up for these lawmakers and they’ll be quick to call for more tax hikes.” “These are serious jobs,” said Sen. Will Brownsberger (D-Belmont). “And you want people to compete for these jobs and you don’t want these guys under financial strain. You’re talking about the legislative leaders, you don’t want them under financial strain any more than you want a police officer walking the beat under financial strain.” “I don’t think anyone that works in the Legislature as a representative or senator is struggling to put food on their table or get health care for their families,” responded Rep. Shauna O’Connell (R-Taunton). “And we have people in Massachusetts that are struggling. We have a budget deficit right now. And the first thing that

we go in and do, the very first session we have, is to vote on a substantial pay raise.” In 1998, voters approved by a two-toone margin a constitutional amendment requiring governors to calculate and announce an increase or decrease in legislative salaries every two years. The specific language requires legislative salaries to be “increased or decreased at the same rate as increases or decreases in the median household income for the commonwealth for the preceding two-year period, as ascertained by the governor.” Under that formula, legislators’ salaries were increased by $2,515 for the 20172018 legislative session. The current base pay for legislators is now $62,547. That hike came on the heels of a salary freeze for the 2015-2016 legislative session, a $1,100 pay cut for the 2013-2014 session and a $306 pay cut for the 2011-2012 session. Prior to 2011, legislators’ salaries had been raised every two years since the $46,410 base pay was first raised under the constitutional amendment in 2001. The new $62,547 salary means legislative salaries have been raised $16,137, or 34.8 percent, since the mandated salary adjustment became part of the state constitution. Currently, 99 of the state’s 200 legislators receive a stipend. Thirty-eight of the 40 senators and 59 of the 160 representatives receive bonus pay for their service in Democratic or Republican leadership positions, as committee chairs or vice chairs and as the ranking Republican on some committees. Currently, annual stipends for these positions range from $7,500 to $35,000 above their annual base salary. The bill would increase many of those stipends and the new range would be from $15,000 to $65,000. The bill requires that every two years the salaries of the governor, the other five constitutional statewide officers and the House speaker and Senate president be increased or decreased based on data from the Bureau of Economic Analysis (BEA) that measures the quarterly change in salaries and wages. It also requires that the same formula be used every two years to increase or decrease the stipends that 99 other legislators receive. There is a caveat that the salary they receive can never be less than it was when the pay raises were approved in January 2017. The measure puts an end to legislative per diems which are travel, meals and lodging reimbursements collected by the legislators. These reimbursements were given to legislators above and beyond their regular salaries. The amount of the per diem varied and was based on the city or town in which a legislator resides and its distance from the Statehouse. In 2016, 103 or more than one-half of the state’s 200 legislators were paid per diems totaling $278,601. Another provision increases the annual general expense allowance for each legislator from $7,200 to $15,000 for members whose districts are within a 50-mile radius of the Statehouse and to $20,000 for districts located outside of that radius. The most recent increase in the general expense allowance was a hike from $3,600 to $7,200 in 2000. This allowance is used at the discretion of individual legislators to support a variety of costs including the renting of a district office, contributions to local civic groups and the printing and mailing of newsletters. Legislators are issued a 1099 from the state and are required to report the allowance as income but are not required to submit an accounting of how they spend it. Under current federal law, which the bill does not affect, these same legislators who live more than 50 miles from the Statehouse are eligible for a special federal tax break. A 1981 federal law al-

Page 21

lows them to write off a daily expense allowance when filing their federal income tax return. The complicated system determines a daily amount, ostensibly for meals, lodging and other expenses incurred in the course of their jobs, which can be deducted for every “legislative day.” Under the Massachusetts Legislature’s system and schedule, every day of the year qualifies as a legislative day. The Legislature does not formally “prorogue” (end an annual session) until the next annual session begins. This allows these legislators to take the deduction for all 365 days regardless of whether the Legislature is meeting or not. Legislators do not have to travel to the Statehouse to qualify for the daily deduction. The amount of the deduction is based on the federal per diem for Massachusetts. It varies from year to year. The daily per diem for legislators for 2016 varies in different parts of the state and is seasonal. It ranges from $162 per day to $366 per day or between $59,130 and $133,590 annually. It is estimated that more than onethird of the state’s 200 legislators qualify for this deduction and are eligible to pay little or no federal income tax on their legislative salaries. Other provisions of the pay hike package give a $65,000 housing allowance for the governor. Massachusetts is one of only six states that supplies neither a governor’s residence nor a housing allowance, even as Boston has the among the most expensive housing market of any of the state capitals. The package also has an emergency preamble attached to it. That means it goes into effect immediately instead of in the usual 90 days. The preamble says, “Whereas, the deferred operation of this act would tend to defeat its purpose, which is to make certain changes in law for compensation of public officials, therefore, it is hereby declared to be an emergency law, necessary for the immediate preservation of the public convenience.” Opponents said it is unfair that voters are not allowed to collect signatures to put a question repealing the pay raises on the November 2018 ballot because the package includes judicial pay hikes which under the Massachusetts Constitution cannot be the subject of a repeal on the ballot. “The judges were included because judges haven’t had a pay raise in a couple of years and we’re below the national average [in pay],” said Rosenberg. “We are having trouble recruiting people to apply for judgeships.” Ford responded, “With such careful thought and consideration given to the mechanics of this legislation, this certainly cannot be unintentional. It is to ensure that this pay grab is referendum-proof, preventing any kind of citizen input whatsoever, every step along the way, and beyond.” (A “Yes” vote is for the pay raise. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle  Sen. Sal DiDomenico

$200 MILLION FOR LOCAL ROADS AND BRIDGES (H 3648) House 159-0, Senate 36-0, approved and on May 4 Gov. Baker signed into law a bill authorizing $200 million in onetime funding for the maintenance and repair of local roads and bridges in cities and towns across the state. The package is a bond bill under which the funding would be borrowed by the state through the sale of bonds. The measure also authorizes $70 million for the completion of the ATLAS, the Registry of Motor Vehicles’ technology system that will replace an archaic system that is 30 years old and difficult to maintain and use. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Sen. Sal DiDomenico

Yes Yes

$40.2 BILLION FISCAL 2018 STATE BUDGET (H 3800) House 140-9, Senate 36-2, approved and on July 11 Gov. Baker signed into law a conference committee version of a $40.2 billion fiscal 2018 state budget to cover state spending from July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018. The governor vetoed $320.3 million in spending. The Legislature has yet to override any of the vetoes. (A “Yes” vote is for the budget. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle  Sen. Sal DiDomenico 

Yes Yes

FAIRNESS FOR PREGNANT WORKERS (H 3816) House 150-0, Senate 38-0, approved and on July 27 Gov. Baker signed into law the Pregnant Workers Fairness Act that prohibits an employer from discriminating against, refusing to employ or firing a woman because she is pregnant or has a condition related to pregnancy. The measure guarantees reasonable accommodations and safety measures for pregnant mothers. Reasonable accommodations include time off to recover from childbirth; more frequent, longer paid or unpaid breaks; acquiring or modifying equipment or seating arrangements; and a private non-bathroom space for expressing breast milk — unless any of these would create an undue hardship on the employer. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle Yes Sen. Sal DiDomenico Yes REGULATE MARIJUANA (H 3818) House 136-11, Senate 32-6, approved and on July 28, Gov. Baker signed into law a bill changing some provisions and adding other provisions to the law, approved by voters on the 2016 ballot, legalizing the possession, growing and sale of marijuana. The measure taxes all marijuana sales with a 10.75 percent excise tax, 6.25 percent state sales tax and a local option allowing cities and towns to impose an additional tax of up to 3 percent. In addition, any agreement between a retail marijuana establishment and a host community for the first five years may include a community impact fee of up to another 3 percent paid by the seller to the city or town to cover the costs imposed upon the municipality by the operation of the establishment. Medical marijuana remains tax-free. If a city or town voted for the 2016 marijuana ballot question, the decision to prohibit or restrict marijuana establishments will be determined by a local city or town wide referendum. If a city or town voted against the ballot question, the decision would be made by the municipality’s governing body until December 2019 and then by a local city or town wide referendum. Other key provisions of the new law include: Allowing persons over 21 to give an ounce or less of marijuana to others; possess up to one ounce of marijuana outside their home and ten ounces in their home. Any quantity above one ounce in the home must be under lock and key. Allowing each person to grow six plants per person in his or her home, with a maximum of 12 plants per household. Prohibiting plants that can be visible by neighbors or from a public place and putting growing areas under lock and key. Giving landlords the right to prohibit smoking or growing of marijuana on their properties. Allowing advertising on TV, radio, billboard, print or the Internet only in markets where at least 85 percent of the audience is over 21. Banning retail shops from being located near school zones. (A “Yes” vote is for the bill. A “No” vote is against it.) Rep. Joseph McGonagle  Sen. Sal DiDomenico 

Yes Yes

HOW LONG WAS LAST WEEK’S SESSION? Beacon Hill Roll Call tracks the length of time that the House and Senate were in session each week. Many legislators say that legislative sessions are only one aspect of the Legislature’s job and that a lot of important work is done outside of the House and Senate chambers. They note that their jobs also involve committee work, research, constituent work and other matters that are important to their districts. Critics say that the Legislature does not meet regularly or long enough to debate and vote in public view on the thousands of pieces of legislation that have been filed. They note that the infrequency and brief length of sessions are misguided and lead to irresponsible late-night sessions and a mad rush to act on dozens of bills in the days immediately preceding the end of an annual session. During the week of September 4-8, the House met for a total of 17 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 12 minutes.

LIFE ESTATES

life estate refers to property that an individual has an interest in only for the duration of his or her life. If you have a life estate interest, you are referred to as the life tenant. If you own your own home, you could deed it to your children and reserve a life estate within the deed itself. You would be the life tenant and your children would be the remaindermen. The life estate would allow you to use, occupy and enjoy the property for the remainder of your life. The remaindermen’s interest is vested but they would not have the right to actually use, occupy and enjoy the property. The life tenant would have complete control over the property until he or she dies. The life tenant, however, cannot sell the home or mortgage the home without the consent of the remaindermen. The life tenant can rent out the property and collect the net rental income from the property. The life tenant also has the obligation to maintain and preserve the property for the future benefit of the remaindermen. If the property is sold, a certain amount of the sales proceeds must be

allocated to the life tenant. One needs to refer to the IRS Section 7520 interest rates as well as the Book Aleph table in order to determine the percentage of the sales proceeds that is to be allocated to the life tenant and the portion to be allocated to the remaindermen. If the property is the principal residence of the life tenant, in all likelihood, there will be no taxable capital gain. An individual has a $250,000 capital gain exclusion while a married couple enjoys a $500,000 capital gains exclusion. For an 86 year old female, if a home were sold for $800,000, approximately 12.5% of the sales proceeds, or $100,000, would be allocable to her. In this scenario, there certainly would be no taxable capital gain to her. The other $700,000 of sales proceeds would be allocable to the remaindermen. If they do not occupy the home as their principal residence, there would most likely be a capital gains tax to pay on that portion of the sale. The other issue to make note of is that once the home is sold, as in our example, the $100,000 of sales proceeds allocated to the life tenant (less selling expenses of course) would then

become a“countable”asset if she were to go into a nursing home. If she decided to give the monies to her children, there would be a 5 year look-back period applicable. She would not be able to apply for MassHealth prior to the expiration of that 5 year period and become eligible. MassHealth would consider that to be a disqualifying transfer. Life estates do avoid probate. That is a plus. So long as the 5 year lookback period has elapsed, the home would also be protected in the event of nursing home placement and a subsequent application for MassHealth benefits is submitted. Another benefit of a life estate is that the children (i.e. remaindermen) will receive a cost basis equal to the fair market value at the time of the parent’s death. In many cases, no estate tax is due and if the children subsequently sell the home, there will be no capital gains tax as well. Any appreciated asset includible in one’s“taxable” estate receives this “step-up” in cost basis. The retention of the life estate is what leads to inclusion of the appreciated asset such as a home as part of the“taxable”estate. However, if

W

the gross estate is below $5.5 million, no federal estate tax return would be due and if the gross estate is below $1million, no Massachusetts estate tax return would be due. With a life estate, your children’s interest could be attached by a creditor or a spouse in the context of a divorce. If your child were to file for bankruptcy, his or her interest would be part of the bankruptcy filing. If your child were to die before you, his or her estate would have to be probated in order to determine the ownership succession. There are pros and cons to using life estates as opposed to living trusts. As in every case, the facts and circumstances of your unique situation will dictate the best course of action to take.

Everett voted against the initiative by a margin of a little over 300 votes, with 6,853 voting against the ballot question and 6,539 voting for it. Ward 1 Councillor Fed Capone praised the letter when it came before the council Monday evening, saying he thought it was “something that expresses the will of this community. The voters have spoken about this question. They do not want it. It think it undermines where we’re heading as a community.” The City Council voted to forward the proposal to the Planning Board for review.

Dialogue is expected to continue on the matter, the council voting to refer the item to their traffic commission. An official construction timeline has not been released, but O’Neil stated that the school hopes to begin classes in January.

How to Find a Better Medicare Prescription Drug Plan Dear Savvy Senior, I think I’m paying too much for the medications I take. I have a Medicare Part D prescription drug plan and my out-of-pocket spending is over $4,000 thus far in 2017. When and how can I change my Medicare drug plan?  Inquiring Carol Dear Carol, You can change your Part D prescription drug plan during Medicare’s open enrollment period, which runs from October 15 through December 7. During this time, beneficiaries can switch drug plans or join a drug plan if you didn’t have one before. They can also switch from Original Medicare to a Medicare Advantage plan, or vice versa if they wish. Any changes to coverage will take effect January 1, 2018. In September, you should also keep your eyes peeled for your “annual notice of change” from your drug plan. It will outline any changes in coverage, costs or service that will take effect in January. If you take no action during open enrollment, your current coverage will continue next year. Yet even those who are happy with their coverage should review their plan for any changes to come.

Change Medicare Plans If you have Internet access and are comfortable using a computer, you can easily shop for and compare all Medicare drug plans in your area, and enroll in a new plan online. Just go to Medicare’s Plan Finder Tool at Medicare.gov/ find-a-plan, and type in your ZIP code or your personal information, enter in how you currently receive your Medicare coverage, select the drugs you take and their dosages, and choose the pharmacies you use. You’ll get a cost comparison breakdown for every plan available in your area so you can compare it to your current plan. This tool also provides a fivestar rating system that evaluates each plan based on past customer service records, and suggests generics or older brand name drugs that can reduce your costs. When you’re comparing drug plans, look at the “estimated annual drug costs” that shows how much you can expect to pay over a year in total out-of-

pocket costs, including premiums, deductibles and co-pays. Also, be sure the plan you’re considering covers all of the drugs you take with no restrictions. Most drug plans today place the drugs they cover into price tiers. A drug placed in a higher tier may require you to get prior authorization or try another medication first before you can use it. Need Help? If you need some help choosing a new plan, you can call 1-800-MEDICARE and they can help you out over the phone. Or, contact your State Health Insurance Assistance Program (SHIP), which provides free one-onone Medicare counseling. They also conduct seminars during the open enrollment period at various locations throughout each state. To find the contact information for your local SHIP visit Shiptacenter.org, or call the eldercare locator at 800677-1116. Low-Income Assistance If you find yourself struggling to pay your medication costs, check out Medicare’s “Extra Help” program. This is a federal low-income subsidy that helps pays Part D premiums, deductibles and copayments. To be eligible, your income must be under $18,090 or $24,360 for married couples living together, and your assets must be below $13,820 or $27,600 for married couples. For more information or to apply, call Social Security at 800-772-1213 or visit SSA.gov/ medicare/prescriptionhelp. Other resources that can help include RxAssist.org, which maintains a comprehensive database of patient assistance programs, set up by drug companies for those who have trouble affording their medications. And NeedyMeds.org, a national nonprofit organization that maintains a website of free information on programs that help people who can’t afford their medications or other health-care costs.

THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, September 15, 2017 Foresteire. “Mayor Carlo DeMaria, the members of the School Committee, various city departments, and construction crews showed great cooperation and dedication in preparing this space for the 2017-18 school year.” In converting part of the first

floor of the old High School into the Webster School Extension, workers replaced and upgraded the lighting, refinished the floors, completely renovated the bathrooms to make them age appropriate, installed heating and air conditioning units, and wired

the facility with the technology required of 21st-century classrooms. The opening of the Webster School Extension will help alleviate over-crowding issues at the Webster, Parlin, and Keverian schools. “Our thanks to the city for helping us find a creative solution to our ongoing efforts to meet the needs of our expanding student population. These classrooms

will serve the dual purpose of providing dedicated classrooms for some of our youngest students, while freeing up much-needed space at three existing elementary schools,” said Superintendent Foresteire. Webster School Principal Denise Hanlon will serve in the same role for the Extension, while Michelle Bosco will serve as the Head Teacher.

PURPLE HEARTS REUNITED

Surprisingly many Purple Heart medals turn up in yard sales, pawn shops, antique stores, attics, flea markets and rubbish. Some are just plain lost or forgotten. Purple Hearts Reunited is an organization whose purpose is not only to seek out the medals but to reunite them with their recipients or their families. Zachariah Fike founded the organization as he was dismayed to find the medals being sold or just being held by people with no connection to them. His team researches the recovered medals and gets them to the recipients, their families or descendants. He collaborates with Valor Research which tracks down recipients or families and Valor Guard which presents the medals. Lost a Purple Heart medal or wanting to get a medal to the recipient or family?
