industry, works hard every day and carefully crafts regulations to ensure that the casino industry yields positive impacts for not just host communities, but for the entire state of Massachusetts. Years before the first gaming resort opens its doors, the transformative and positive effect of the Commonwealth’s gaming legislation is already being felt. In the City of Everett, where I am proud to serve as mayor, construction of the $2.4 billion Wynn Boston Harbor resort is progressing at a rapid pace. Today, nearly two years before the destination resort opens its doors, more than $3 million in salaries have been paid to construction workers

Vacant and abandoned Summer Street house removed

M

ayor Carlo DeMaria and Director of Inspectional Services James Soper are pleased to report that the property at 97 Summer St. was recently demolished. The debris has been removed from the site and the property is being leveled and cleaned up. The building that was previously on the site had been issued multiple sanitary and building code violations. And the property was the site of a Christmas Day standoff and fire in 2015. At that time, the property became vacant. Mayor DeMaria became immediately concerned about the property, the numerous violations of the State Sanitary Code and the negative effects of having a vacant building in the neighborhood. The City of Everett immediately began enforcement actions. After several months of no response, the City secured the services of law firm D’Ambrosio Brown LLP. The firm was able to expedite the lengthy legal process, and a judge issued receivership of the property to Community Revitalization Group LLC. As appointed receiver, Community Revitalization Group took full responsibility for the property and was tasked with clearing all State Sanitary Code violations. On

Wednesday, August 9, Community Revitalization Group knocked down the house. Once the project is complete, Community Revitalization Group will collect payment for the cost of the repairs with additional fees allowed for management of the project. The City of Everett will be paid all fines, back-taxes or any other monies owed in regards to the property. Mayor DeMaria stated, “I am glad to finally see some resolution with 97 Summer St. For years the neighbors have been dealing with this neglected property. Our ISD [Inspectional Services Department] team has been diligent in its dealing with this case through the court system. This is a great improvement and we look

forward to working with the neighborhood in improving this lot.” Community Revitalization Group Principal Scott Fitzpatrick stated, “The City of Everett, especially the Fire, Inspectional Services and Legal Departments, made it easy on our end to complete this receivership process. They exemplified what it means to be professionals and it was a great experience working with them and the entire city.” Once the City of Everett clears the property of violations, the owners of the property and the banks or management companies will then be given first opportunity to make repayment to Community Revitalization Group, otherwise they can take advantage of a rapid foreclosure process through the Court. Assistant City Solicitor/ Chairperson of Everett’s Task Force Keith Slattery stated, “With the groundwork and procedures put in place by Attorney Peter Brown, coupled with the coordination between the departments as undertaken by the Task Force, this is a great example of what can and will be accomplished going forward.”

George Clinton and his band the Parliament Funkadelic to our great City. This yearâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s show will be fantastic.â&#x20AC;? The past two editions of Village Fest have been a smashing success, with huge turnouts from residents of Everett and several surrounding communities.

Engaging in our community By Mayor Carlo DeMaria

A

s we enter the end of the summer season and the beginning of fall I wanted to reach out to my neighbors, my family, and my friends to remind them of several community events occurring in the upcoming months. As Mayor, it has always been important for me to make sure that my administration offers a variety of programs, events, and opportunities for our residents. This year is no exception. In the month of August there are several dates to keep in mind. This year we have brought back outdoor family movie night. Two more nights of movies are planned. On Friday, August 18th the featured film will be Despicable Me 2 and on Friday, August 25th we will be showing Zootopia. Both films will be shown at Everett Stadium at 8 p.m., but I encourage everyone to come at 7:00 p.m. and enjoy pre-movie entertainment. On August 24th at 6 p.m. we will be having another Summer Fun Series with a Concert at the Park featuring Smokinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Joe & the Henchmen at Werner Park (across from Dairy Maid). Smokinâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; Joeâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s music spans all generations and will be sure to get you up and moving, so bring your chairs and blankets and enjoy the show.

Club Fit Kids the latest in Mayor DeMaria’s public health achievements

M

ayor Carlo DeMaria’s resume on business development often gets the spotlight, and not without reason; one of his signature initiatives as mayor has been work on public wellness and health programs. And by all accounts, whether you’re talking about the farmers’ market, the Healthy Meals program, the opening of the Wellness Center or any of a number of milestones and programs – to say nothing of Wynn Resorts’ cleanup of the long polluted site formerly occupied by Monsanto on the Mystic River – his effort to make Everett healthier is an overwhelming success. His most recent program (with the Health & Wellness Center), “Club Fit Kids,” promotes healthy lifestyles among Everett’s youths with a program including fitness, play and nutritional education. The program begins the last of its four weeks on Monday, but we hope this won’t be the last we see of it, and we predict that it won’t be the last public health initiative coming out of the mayor’s office.

The play (workshop)’s the thing

T

he city has welcomed many new businesses and organizations to the community in the last few years, but few are as exciting as the Huntington Theatre Company, which recently opening their new production workshop at 46 Garden St. off Revere Beach Parkway. The shop will handle all of the company’s set-building work and house much its costume supply. In a formerly industrial neighborhood undergoing a long-overdue turnaround, these talented professionals and their Tony Award-winning company are welcome additions to the community.

Everett’s Matt Nuzzo readies his bat for Pedro

Former EHS football great and Brown University football and baseball star Matt Nuzzo was honored with the Greg Montalbano Award when he suited up at the 24th annual Oldtime Baseball Game at St. Peter’s Field in Cambridge on Thursday, August 17. Dressed in the gray throwback 1925 St. Louis Cardinals uniform, Nuzzo, who also played professional baseball for the Toronto Blue Jay’s organization minor league team the Auburn Doubledays, will bat against former Red Sox Hall of Fame pitcher Pedro Martinez. Matt is a three-time veteran of the Oldtimer Game and told the Boston Herald on Wednesday that if given the opportunity to bat against Pedro, “I’m not going to walk…I’m going to get my money’s worth, that’s for sure.” Knowing Matt, he certainly will.

Mayor’s Club Fit Kids’ program a success with Everett’s youths

M

onday, August 21, will commence the final week of Mayor Carlo DeMaria’s Club Fit Kids’ program. The program, which has run for four weeks between the months of July and

August, has been a huge success among Everett’s youths and their families. The mayor has remained committed to bringing more health and wellness opportunities and education to Everett and its residents. The DeMaria administration developed the Club Fit Kids’ program out of the Health & Wellness Center to promote a healthy and active lifestyle for Everett’s children. The curriculum includes indoor and outdoor fitness play along with daily nutritional segments. Fitness games, play and challenges have nutritional lessons directly related to them, so children can better understand each lesson in a fun and creative way (Human Hungry Hungry Hippos, Sugar Tag, Dodge [The Sugar] Ball, and Through the Heart Obstacle Course). Mayor DeMaria stated, “We wanted to teach kids how to incorporate healthy living into their daily lives. In this program, children learn, through games and interactive fitness activities, the importance of a healthy physical self and making the appropriate food choices to maintain that health.” In addition to learning the importance of proper nutrition, the children have also learned the fundamentals of basic exercise. They acquire ways to have fun – while also staying fit – and learn how to easily incorporate physical activity into their everyday routine. The program participants are also introduced to some of the new parks available to them within the community as part of outdoor adventures. The program provides the children each day with prepared, healthy meals from the City Chef, Tina Souza. It was important for the mayor to incorporate nutritionally balanced meals into the program. Chef Souza prepares meals everyday in the Connolly Center kitchen, using fresh and clean ingredients.


THE EVERETT ADVOCATE - Friday, August 18, 2017 THE HOUSE AND SENATE. There were no roll call votes in the House or Senate last week. This week, Beacon Hill Roll Call reports local representatives’ roll call attendance records for the 2017 session through August 11. The House has held 80 roll call votes so far in 2017. We tabulate the number of roll calls on which each representative was present and voting and then calculate that number as a percentage of the total roll call votes held. That percentage is the number referred to as the roll call attendance record. Several quorum roll calls, used to gather a majority of members onto the House floor to conduct business, are also included in the 380 roll calls. On quorum roll calls, members simply vote “present” in order to indicate their presence in the chamber. When a representative does not indicate his or her presence on a quorum roll call, we count that as a roll call absence just like any other roll call absence. Only 69 (43 percent) of the House’s 160 members have 100 percent roll call attendance records. The representatives who missed the most roll calls are Reps. Marc Lombardo (R-Billerica) and Rep. Jose Tosado (D-Springfield), who both missed 17 (78.8 percent attendance).

Also included in the top six worst records are Reps. James Arciero (D-Westford) who missed 13 (83.8 percent attendance); Chris Walsh (D- Framingham) who missed 13 (83.8 percent attendance); John Rogers (D-Norwood) who missed 12 (85.0 percent attendance record); and Nicholas Boldyga (R-Southwick) who missed 10 (87.5 percent attendance record). Beacon Hill Roll Call requested a statement from those six representatives. Here are their responses. Rep. Marc Lombardo: “I missed the rules debate in January where the majority of the session’s roll calls all occurred on the same day. This was a rules debate, not a 2YHUDSSOLDQFHVLQVWRFN policy debate. I was out of town that day.” Rep. Jose Tosado: “Most [of the roll calls], if not all occurred on the same day. My-sister in-law had been diagnosed with pancreatic cancer and my wife and I flew out to Orlando Florida to pay our last respects. She has [since] passed away.” Rep. Chris Walsh: “In 2015 I discovered a lump in my leg that when biopsied tuned out to be a reasonably rare form of lymphoma ... And since then I have been undergoing weeklong continuous chemo-

Page 15

therapy sessions in a 21-day cycle that required hospitalization for a week, followed by a week when I could barely stand ... [It is] a very dangerous condition to be around people with all their various germs ... I am at Dana Farber being infused in a new immunotherapy trial that has promised to get me to a place where I can have a successful bone marrow transplant hopefully this fall. All in all I have continued to work by phone when I could not make it to the office, and attended functions and meetings when humanly possible. This new therapy will allow me to go back to a full schedule.” Rep. James Arciero: Jeff Tucker from Arciero’s office responded. “The representative’s mother had terminal lung cancer and he spent some time with her at the end of her life. She lived in North Carolina, so [he] missed these roll calls.” Rep. John Rogers: Rogers did not respond to the requests for a statement. Rep. Nicholas Boldyga: Boldyga did not respond to the requests for a statement. 2017 ROLL CALL ATTENDANCE RECORD THROUGH AUGUST 11 The percentage listed next to the representative’s name is the percentage of roll call votes for which the representative was present and voting. The number in parentheses represents the number of roll calls that the representative missed. Rep. Joseph McGonagle

98.8 percent (1)

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 mat-

ters 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 August 7-11, the House met for a total of 19 minutes while the Senate met for a total of 12 minutes. Mon. August 7 House 10:15 a.m. to 10:23 a.m. Senate 10:01 a.m. to 10:09 a.m. Tues. August 8 No House session No Senate session Wed. August 9 No House session No Senate session Thurs. August 10 House 11:03 a.m. to 11:14 a.m. Senate 11:08 a.m. to 11:12 a.m. Fri. August 11 No House session No Senate session

COMMUNITY SPOUSE PROTECTION OF ASSETS

M

edicaid (MassHealth in Massachusetts) law provides certain protections for the spouse of a nursing home resident in order to make sure he or she has the minimum support necessary to live in the community. If the MassHealth applicant is married, the countable assets of both the community spouse and institutionalized spouse are totaled as of the date of “institutionalization”, the day on which the ill spouse enters either a hospital or a long-term care facility in which he or she then stays for at least 30 days. This is also commonly referred to as the “snapshot” date because MassHealth is taking a picture of the couple’s assets as of this date. For calendar year 2017, the community spouse may keep up to a maximum of $120,900. Called the“community spouse resource allowance”, this is the most that a state may allow a community spouse to retain without a hearing or a court order. Example: If a couple has $122,900 in countable assets on the date the applicant enters a nursing home, the institutionalized spouse will be eligible for MassHealth. The community spouse may keep $120,900 in his or her own name while the institutionalized spouse may keep up to $2,000 in his or her own name. Therefore, in Massachusetts, the entire $122,900 may be kept and no spend down is necessary. The income of the community spouse will continue undisturbed. He or she will not have to use his or her income to support the nursing home spouse receiving MassHealth benefits. What if most of the couple’s income is in the name of the institutionalized spouse, and the community spouse’s income is not sufficient to live on? In such cases, the community spouse is entitled to some or all of the monthly income of the institutionalized spouse. How much the community spouse is entitled to depends on what MassHealth determines to be the minimum income level for the community spouse. This figure, known as the minimum monthly maintenance needs allowance or MMMNA, is calculated for each community spouse according to a complicated formula based on his or her housing costs. From

July 1, 2017 to June 30, 2018, the MMMNA may range from a low of $2,030 to a high of $3,022.50. If the community spouse’s income falls below his or her MMMNA, the shortfall is made up from the nursing home spouse’s income. In some instances community spouses may seek to retain more of the couple’s countable assets and/or some of the institutionalized spouse’s income by asking for a Fair Hearing with MassHealth. The spousal resource allowance is adjusted on January 1st of each year. It is important to know that for a married couple, there may not be a need to transfer assets directly to the children if the countable assets are at or below the $122,900 figure and one spouse is healthy and at home. Planning ahead of time with married couples is very important from an asset protection standpoint. Avoiding an unnecessary spend down is often critical in terms of maintaining some sense of financial stability for the community spouse. It is important to know all of the options available to you under the law. For example, there are numerous key exceptions to certain asset transfers that would otherwise constitute a disqualifying transfer under MassHealth rules. It is important to know whether or not you might fall under one of these exceptions. Obtaining MassHealth eligibility is often a daunting task these days, particularly in light of MassHealth’s legal department challenging many of the applications on numerous legal fronts. I believe the staggering Medicaid budget has a lot to do with the increased difficulty in obtaining approvals on applications. Such has been the case for that past four years or so.

Finding Money for Long-Term Care Dear Savvy Senior, What resources can you refer me to for long-term care financial help? My 84-year-old mother needs assisted living or nursing home care, but we don’t have a lot of money and she doesn’t have long-term care insurance. Searching Daughter Dear Searching, If your mother does not have a long-term care insurance policy, depending on her circumstances, here are several other sources you should check into that can help pay for her care. Medicaid: The first thing you need to understand is that Medicare (the government health insurance program for seniors 65 and older and those with disabilities) does not cover long-term care, which includes nursing home care, the costs of assisted living facilities and home aide services, unless your mom is receiving skilled nursing or therapy services too. It only provides limited short-term coverage, up to 100 days for skilled nursing or rehabilitation services after a hospital stay. However, Medicaid (the joint federal and state program that covers health care for the poor) as it currently stands, does cover long-term care facilities and it covers in-home care too. But to be eligible for coverage, your mother must be very low-income. Her countable assets can’t be more than around $2,000, including investments. Note that most people who enter a nursing home don’t qualify for Medicaid at first, but pay for care out-of-pocket until they deplete their savings enough to qualify. Contact your state Medicaid office (see Medicaid.gov) for eligibility details. Veterans aid: If your mom is a wartime veteran, or a spouse or surviving spouse of a wartime veteran, there is a benefit called Aid and Attendance that can help pay between $1,153 and $2,127 a month toward her long-term care. To be eligible, your mom must need assistance with daily living activities like bathing, dressing or going to the bathroom. And her yearly income must be under $13,836 as a surviving spouse, $21,531 for a single veteran, or $25,525 as a married veteran – after her medical and long-term care expenses. Her assets must also be less than $80,000 excluding her home and car. To learn more see Benefits.VA.gov/pension, or contact your regional VA office, or your local veterans service organization. Call 800-8271000 for contact information. Life insurance: If your mom has a life insurance policy, find out if it offers an accelerated death benefit that would allow you to get a tax-free advance to help pay for her care. Or, consider selling her policy to a life settlement company. These are companies that buy life insurance policies for cash, continue to pay the premiums and collect the death benefit when she dies. Most sellers generally get four to eight times more than the policy cash surrender value. If you own a policy with a face value of $100,000 or more and are interested in this option, there are various companies you can turn to like GWG Life (GWGLife.com), which offers some of the highest cash payouts for life insurance policies. Tax breaks: If you’re helping out your mom financially, you may also be able to claim her as a dependent on your taxes and reduce your taxable income by $4,050, which you could use for her care. To qualify, you must pay at least half of your mom’s yearly expenses, and her annual income must be below $4,050, not counting Social Security. For more information, see IRS Publication 501 at IRS.gov/pub/ irs-pdf/p501.pdf. If you can’t claim your mom as a dependent because her income is too high, you may still be able to get a tax break if you’re paying at least half her living expenses including her medical, dental and long-term care costs, and they exceed 7.5 percent of your adjusted gross income. You can include your own medical expenses in calculating the total. See the IRS publication 502 (IRS.gov/pub/irs-pdf/p502.pdf) for details.

WYNN CHANGING | FROM PAGE 1 who reside in our city. Everett residents are also receiving priority access to the more than 4,500 job openings at Wynn Boston Harbor. These are careers, not just jobs, providing excellent salaries, benefits and opportunities for advancement. More than money, there is a forceful and transformative spirit that has permeated our city. Wynn is revitalizing an industrial and underutilized neighborhood, and opening a beautiful urban waterfront that has been fenced off from the public for over 100 years. Soon, our residents will be able to walk or bike along the entire Malden River- something many never dreamed possible. More than $30 million was spent by Wynn and Wynn alone to clean the former chemical plant site, which was highly contaminated and blighting the community. Since construction of Wynn Boston Harbor started, my office regularly takes calls from developers worldwide interested in investing in our city. Just four months ago, Everett opened its first new hotel in 70 years. Just last week, we welcomed the Huntington Theatre Company set production team of 200 employees to a site down the road from the resort. The number of new businesses who want to open here, and existing companies who want to expand here, is skyrocketing. There is an infectious excitement and optimism that can be felt whenever I talk to local business owners. A five-star gaming resort thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s the caliber of Wynn Boston Harbor does not take away from local businesses. Rather, Wynn is bringing in tourists who would never otherwise have visited our city, while generating $660 million a year in taxes, payroll, goods and servicesâ&#x20AC;&#x201D;including at least $100 million in commerce with local vendors. Thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s nearly $2 million a day injected into our local economy. And thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s not counting one dollar of secondar y spending in and around Everett by Wynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 8 million guests a year, or Wynnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s 4,500 employees. This economic stimulus creates growth and prosperity which, in turn, only improves public safety and overall quality of life. The fact of the matter is, the City of Everett is thriving today and will continue to thrive in the future because Wynn is a catalyst for our economic revitalization and that of the entire Commonwealth.
