Auto repair shop owner files ethics complaint against city councillor, subcommittee By Barbara Taormina local business owner is crying foul over the way city officials have handled his license to sell used cars at his auto repair shop. Ed Bukirch, owner of AutoTech on Eastern Ave. in Malden for 27 years, believes that the City Council’s Licensing Subcommittee – and Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica in particular, who is vice chair of the Licensing Subcommittee – acted improperly by first increasing his auto dealer license from five to 23 cars

with an unexpected cost – the trees. Earl Street is part of a batch of 24 roads that were slated for repairs and reconstruction this year. Since work began, several large shade trees on Earl Street were removed to make way for new sidewalks. But recently when crews started lopping the limbs off a stately 70-foot tree near the corner

of Earl and Dexter Streets, neighbors Lenny Merullo and Brian DeLacey stepped in. State law requires cities and towns to hold a public hearing before a public shade tree is removed. But no notices were given, and no hearings were held about that tree. Merullo told workers there was a problem and

son took office. In 2012 funding was requested to buy back Malden’s streetlights from National Grid. When that process was complete and ownership was secured, the City of Malden began the process to upgrade the lights to the latest LED standard. A grant was applied for and received in the amount of almost $20,000 to conduct an investment grade audit of the streetlights throughout Malden. That was followed by the execution of an Energy Management Services Agreement with Tanko Lighting that called for the replacement of all cobra head lights citywide and will result in a guaranteed savings associated with the upgrade. The conversion will be partially funded through a grant from the Baker-Polito Administration’s $11.4 million Rapid LED Streetlight Conversion Program that offers grants to help cities and towns across Massachusetts convert traditional streetlights to LED technology through the Department of En-

ergy Resources. “Converting municipally owned streetlights into energy-efficient LEDs helps cities and towns across the Commonwealth realize thousands of dollars in annual energy savings while reducing emissions,� said Lieutenant Governor Karyn Polito. “LED streetlights reduce energy usage during peak demand times, lessening the burden on our regional electric grid and reducing costs for all ratepayers.� “This is a great initiative for the City of Malden and its residents,� said Mayor Christenson. “The project will save over $240,000 per year in energy costs. Taking into account the $187,000 Department of Energy Resources grant along with utility rebates, the project has a payback of about two years.

DEBBIE DeMARIA COUNCILLOR AT-LARGE

HONEST, HARDWORKING and HUMBLY ASKING FOR YOUR VOTE ON NOVEMBER 7, 2017 (Paid Political Advertisement)

Ward 3 Councillor candidates clash over short-term rentals By Barbara Taormina ne of the perennial complaints on Maldenâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s different message boards and social media sites is houses that offer transient short-term rentals to visitors who gobble up parking spaces, dump trash and blast music in the cityâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s quiet neighborhoods. This week Ward 3 Councillor John Matheson reintroduced a proposal to remove homes that rent rooms on a short-term basis from the owner-occupied tax exemption program and to review ordinances on short-term rental that have been adopted by other communities. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We are lacking a public policy on this,â&#x20AC;? said Matheson. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Our state, other states and the nation as a whole is dealing with this problem of short-term rentals that creates neighborhood distractions that prevent people from the quiet enjoyment of their home.â&#x20AC;? Mathesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s proposal addresses one slice of a wideranging issue of short-term rentals. He said that by referring it to the Rules & Ordinance Subcommittee, he hopes to start a broader conversation on how the city can regulate short-term rentals. Linking the rentals with the owner-occupied tax exemption program compels councillors to consider whether these residences should be considered homes or busi-

O

nesses. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy seemed to understand and appreciate what Matheson was aiming at. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am glad to see this topic come to the table,â&#x20AC;? she said. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s long overdue. Whether itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner-occupied, or nonowner occupied this needs to be looked at in its totality.â&#x20AC;? A lot of the complaints about short-term rentals in Malden are focused on rooms and apartments posted on the Airbnb website, which offers travelers affordable and sometimes Spartan accommodations for brief stays. Matheson has said his proposal is in response to problems that have arisen at several Malden Airbnbs that rent out multiple rooms to groups of guests that party like tomorrow will never arrive. But Candance Julyan,

Mathesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s opponent in the race for the Ward 3 City Council seat, has cast Mathesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s interest in regulating shortterm rentals as an attack on her and her business, Treetops Suite, a short-term rental apartment thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s part of Julyanâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s owner-occupied home. Treetops was launched 13 years ago and has never received a complaint from neighbors. Matheson did hand Julyan a small helping of ammunition in a community rant about Airbnbs that unfolded on the Nextdoor Malden website. During that conversation, one not-so-subtle Matheson supporter said that politics had been injected into the Malden Airbnb issue. He then asked the following question: â&#x20AC;&#x153;So, with that in mind, and to give a fair hearing on this matter, we must ask if any of the can-

didates that own AirBnBs are adhering to law?â&#x20AC;? Matheson then ramped up the semi-snide implication with the following response: â&#x20AC;&#x153;I do not rent my home. The challenger for Ward 3 councillor advertises short term rentals at her home.â&#x20AC;? Although Mathesonâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s statement is accurate, it fails to draw a distinction between Treetops and Airbnbs, and they are two very different types of enterprises. Julyan fired back, claiming that Matheson was using the Nextdoor.com Malden website to attack her. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I am tru-

ly disheartened that our current Councillor has chosen to deliberately mislead voters by making false statements about me,â&#x20AC;? she wrote in a statement responding to Matheson, who didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t actually make any false statements. Julyan then offers some history about Treetops, and stressed that she has never been part of the Airbnb network. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Finally, I must say I'm very troubled by our current Councillorâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s attempt to slander my reputation with innuendo,â&#x20AC;? wrote Julyan. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I realize

Councillors want more time with treasurer candidates By Barbara Taormina he search for Malden’s new Treasurer/Chief Financial Officer (CFO) crept forward this week with city councillors deciding to schedule another round of interviews with the four finalists. The decision to continue the interviews came after councillors spent nearly two hours behind closed doors questioning two of the candidates, former City Councillor Neil Kinnon and Somerville Treasurer Michael Bertino, on issues related to character and reputation. Those executive session interviews were requested by councillors who wanted to ask the candidates about an alleged problem involving a past job and about issues raised during the first round of public interviews. None of the councillors requested a closed-door dialog with either of the other two finalists: Jonathan Davis, a former deputy general manager of the MBTA, and Dan Grover, a mutual fund manager with Eaton Vance. Councillors were not allowed to share any information on their interviews with Kinnon and Bertino. Instead they jumped back into a dis-

T

cussion on the next steps of the search. Most agreed that they need more time and information, including references and background checks, to decide among the finalists. Still some councillors pushed for a final vote for the Treasurer/CFO, albeit for different reasons. Councillor-at-Large David D’Arcangelo has adamantly supported Kinnon and argued that the former Ward 6 councillor is so qualified, and so familiar with city government that the City Council is almost compelled to hire him. Still, D’Arcangelo did not seem to want to take chances. “I’m not sure why we need more time,” he said, adding that a majority of the council had already indicated which candidate they support – “I think we’re ready to vote tonight.” Ward 4 Councillor Ryan O’Malley, who nominated Bertino for the job, wanted to make sure the councillors vote before the upcoming election on Nov. 7. Different pockets of grassroots opposition to Kinnon have emerged, and O’Malley wants voters to know where councillors stand on the Treasurer/CFO before they head to the polls. “I really appeal to the residents of Malden to see

through the smoke and mirrors here,” said O’Malley. “There’s only one candidate who benefits from our pushing this past the election.” But Ward 8 Councillor Jadeane Sica, who served on the Treasurer /CFO Search Committee, slammed councillors for trying to rush a decision without first learning more about the candidates. “I am not sure how anyone up here can vote knowing what we just heard in executive session,” she said. As a member of the search co m m i t te e, S i c a wo r k e d throughout the summer to help compile a short list of finalists from a pool of more than 175 applicants. But the closed-door interviews left her with some uncomfortable questions. “I am actually appalled that some of you are OK with the way people acted in that back room, and that you are still OK with voting for who you want to vote for. I am actually speechless,” she told fellow councillors. Sica said the upcoming election is irrelevant, and councillors are obligated to conduct a thorough search and make the best choice for Malden. Sica’s comments drew ap-

Ward 3 Malden parent raises concerns about Smith campaign funding, secret ties to charters Dear Editor, Amidst all the political chaos of recent months, some folks may not have realized that a Chief of Staff for a national, for-profit, controversial chain of charter schools is running for school committee in Malden. It’s bad news for Malden students and schools. The big out-of-town

money backing Mekka Smith is in many ways an infringement on our democratic process and on our local school system. Sadly, the big-money special interests Smith has brought to Malden’s Ward 3 are also part of a much broader effort to siphon millions of dollars of funding away from public schools and into for-

profit hands. Malden may seem like an unlikely place for the wealthy backers of the failed “question 2” ballot initiative to grab for control of more public tax dollars. As readers will recall, Massachusetts and Malden voters overwhelmingly rejected question 2 which would have drained millions from our public schools. Malden voters should similarly reject Smith’s candidacy for Ward 3 school committee. Unfortunately, for-profit charter school officials like Mekka Smith and her employer “KIPP Academy” are part of a coordinated effort to maximize the amount of tax dollars that get funneled to profit-hungry, privately owned schools, away from the true district public schools – the sort that educate all children who register and cannot counsel out English language learners, students with special education needs, or students who fit other demographics that statistically score lower on standardized tests. Their efforts come at a time when our public schools need more funding, not less. As we have seen in other cities, these salaried charter “profiteers” will often run for school committee masquerading as champions of “change” or “reform” when in fact the opposite is

true. As a Ward 3 resident and parent, I have posed several still-unanswered questions to Smith’s campaign in recent weeks. The lack of response is troubling. Those questions have included: Why won’t Smith answer questions from voters except through one-on-one meetings? Why has she declined to meet with groups of Malden parents who are worried about her growing out-of-town donor list? Why does the candidate feel prerecorded videos are preferable to simply answering voters’ questions – including about her campaigns fundraising efforts and ties to charter groups? If elected, will the candidate continue to be this unresponsive to parents? This lack of engagement is worrisome for Ward 3, especially because in nearly all of Smith’s polished campaign materials, the candidate notably avoids mention of her significant and ongoing ties to the charter school industry. We have seen this kind of secrecy and postured campaigning from charter backers before. These shrouded ties to big money charter schools call to mind the largest-ever campaign finance penalties recently levied on charter backers “Families for

Excellent Schools-Advocacy,” whose clandestine and secretive fundraising operations were recently deemed unlawful by Office of Campaign and Political Finance. Why does Smith, who is paid to drive the agenda of charter schools forward over the interests of public schools, want to be on Malden’s School Committee? A canvasser from Smith’s campaign who recently knocked on my door in Malden did not have any real answer to this key question. The Smith canvasser wasn’t even a Malden resident. The canvasser said she had met Smith through the group Leadership for Educational Equity (LEE). LEE is a pro-charter outfit that works to support poetical candidates associated with Teach for America (TFA), the notorious, union-busting, aggressively pro-charter organization that strategizes to place its members into positions of political and policy influence over district public schools. As it turns out, Smith is the current Board Chair of TFA-Massachusetts — a fact she conveniently omits from her campaign website’s “About Mekka” section. In fact, Smith also omits

~ Letter to the Editor ~

Mekka for Malden: “A clear vision for a better tomorrow” y name is Ted D. Louis-Jacques and I have been a Malden resident for the past 18 years. I want to share with you why I believe that Mekka Smith is the most qualified candidate to serve on the School Committee, Ward 3. Now more than ever when I look at our elected officials, I am searching for people who lead with compassion and empathy. I want people who can relate their experience to my experience and show that we are on the same team, working towards a better future. I see the importance to have people in position with experience who have a record of getting things done, and are still relatable to the average Maldonian family that they are working with. I am a US Army veteran and still currently serve in the Massachusetts Army National Guard. Just a short year ago, I came back home from my deployment in the Middle East. As a veteran and someone who deeply appreciates people who dedicate themselves to public service, and their country, I strongly support Mekka’s candidacy for School Committee. In Mekka, I see someone who has been battling on behalf of children and families all of her career. She has been on the front lines of education. She spent 10 years in

M

public education, starting as a teacher in Miami Dade Public Schools. She was a member of the teachers’ union and worked as an elementary school teacher for five years. Last year she graduated with a Master’s Degree in Education Policy and Management from The Harvard Graduate School of Education. Her experience, her education, her work ethic, and her charisma prove that she is clearly qualified to serve on the School Committee. Here in Malden, we are so proud of our cultural diversity in our children. As a dad and uncle, I recognize that our kids help us understand and see the world in different ways. My family moved to Malden from Haiti, and we all have gone through the Malden Public Schools. I currently have family members – two 5th graders and two 8th graders in the public school system. I believe that Mekka brings a diversity of work experience in the types of schools where she has led classrooms, the types of teachers she has coached, and even in the cities she has worked in. She’s bringing what she knows from working in public schools systems around the country and she has worked in districts in the Commonwealth like Boston, Chelsea, and Lawrence. Many of these urban school

districts have some of the same challenges we are facing – such as tight budgets, increases in population, and growing class sizes. I put my trust in someone who has seen these challenges before and can talk firsthand about how they’ve been addressed in other settings. There’s been some chatter about Mekka’s affiliation with Teach for America and Leadership for Educational Equity, and whether she would be committed to Malden Public Schools. The answer is YES! She is a strong advocate for Malden Public Schools and is eager to start working on behalf of our students. By the way, we currently have a very effective member of the Malden School Committee, who, like Mekka, is a product of and affiliated with TFA and LEE. Mekka simply seeks to join those who are entrusted with making sure that the decisions made at the School Committee level are in the best interest of our children. I’m also hearing that some people are unfairly trying to label Mekka with a “pro charter” agenda. I’m actually shocked at how far-off some of these stories are. Instead of battling each other, we need to join forces and battle the issues that our children face every day. We all

Malden debuts Ofo and LimeBike – dockless bike-sharing programs rides! When use of the bike is complete, the rider will park and lock it and will receive a digital receipt, all through the app. For $1 per hour, a rider may pick up and leave a bike in a convenient spot. Riders are asked to follow safety guidelines and park bikes in recommended areas, out of the public right of way and in a proper and safe spot. Traditional bike-sharing systems charge cities and taxpayers up to $5,000 per bike (for

he City of Malden is pleased to announce that two bikesharing programs are debuting pilot programs in Malden this week. Companies Ofo and LimeBike each offer users a station-free biking experience. Ofo’s bright yellow bikes and LimeBike’s lime green bikes offer riders a convenient, inexpensive, healthy method of transportation that is good for the environment. “This pilot program through the end of 2017 is a great way to gauge residents’ interest and will help inform us on implementing a permanent

T

program in the spring if we decide to go that route,” said Mayor Gary Christenson. “Biking is another way to navigate the city and will encourage travel along our bike path while promoting a healthier lifestyle.” The “smart bikes” are enabled with GPS, 3G wireless technology and self-locks. A would-be rider needs only to download the app to a smartphone to arrange credit card or PayPal payment and locate a bicycle. Then the user simply gets the bike, scans the QR code to unlock the bike and

TREE | FROM PAGE 1 they turned off their chainsaws. M e a nw h i l e, D e L a ce y tracked down Public Works Director Bob Knox, who is also Malden’s tree warden, and explained the situation. Knox came down to Earl Street and spoke with Merullo, DeLacey and the workers. However, as soon as Knox drove off, the saws started up again, and within a couple of hours the tree was gone and the landscape on that corner in that neighborhood was dramatically changed. DeLacey then met with Mayor Gary Christenson, Knox, Yem Lip, who is director of the city’s engineering department, and Steve O’Neill, who is managing the city’s road repair program, to discuss concerns about the way trees were being handled within the road improvements. DeLacey said everyone was straightforward and clear about the need to remove certain trees to complete roadway projects. When roads like Earl Street undergo full-depth reconstruction, which involves tearing out everything and

stations and maintenance) in order to maintain the network; therefore, they do not have as large a bicycle inventory as Ofo and LimeBike. Ofo, founded in in 2014, is the world’s first and largest station-free bike-sharing platform operation via an online mobile application. Ofo’s goal is to continue to make bikes accessible to everyone; to date Ofo has over eight million bikes in over 180 cities across 16 countries. For more information on

Ofo, please visit www.ofo.com. In January 2017, LimeBike was founded. It is headquartered in San Mateo, Calif., and has 50 employees. LimeBike has had successful launches in 12 states. Malden is the first Massachusetts location for LimeBike, and Holy Cross College is Worcester is the first Massachusetts college campus to host the bike-sharing company.

rebuilding the street from scratch, new sidewalks must comply with the design standards outlined in the Americans With Disabilities Act (ADA). Sidewalks must be wide enough and level enough to safely accommodate anyone in a wheel chair. The city’s engineering team said that often involves removing trees to meet width requirements or taking them out so that roots won’t raise the concrete and create a slope. City officials did, however, acknowledge they need to do a better job informing residents about plans to take trees down. “Technically, you are supposed to have a public hearing on shade trees whether you are trimming roots, branches or removing it,” said Knox. “We are going to tighten that up. People will have the knowledge they need going forward.” Knox said the city will post hearing notices on trees it intends to remove. Advertisements for hearings will also be published in two newspapers, and hearing notices will be posted in at least two public places. “We can get everybody together and explain how things

work,” said Knox. And as people often point out, you never know what ideas will arise when you have everyone around the table. Streets that are being repaired and resurfaced but not fully rebuilt are not subject to the same ADA sidewalk design standards, and there is more leeway to develop strategies to fix sidewalks and save trees at the same time. Merullo suggested that some residents might be willing to sacrifice a slice of their front yard if providing that extra space for a sidewalk led to saving a shade tree. Other communities are experimenting with new construction materials that allow them to build ADA-compliant sidewalks without removing trees. “A tree is a tough thing,” said Knox. “We always look at ways to save them.” Knox said the DPW plants 150 trees every year, and the department saves thousands of dollars by doing the work in-house rather than hiring a contractor. And in addition to building the city’s urban forest, Knox said the DPW is making better decisions about where

~ Letter to the Editor ~

LETTER | FROM PAGE 6 from her campaign website that she is currently the paid Chief of Staff at KIPP Academy Lynn Charter School. KIPP runs over 200 charters across the US and is notorious for its severe suspension punishments, suspending over a shocking 35% of its students over the 2014-2015 school year (Joseph, September 2016, Where charter-school suspensions are concentrated, The Atlantic). Clearly, the political machine of big-money charters is back in the form of Smith’s campaign — and it has set its sights on Malden. As Smith’s campaign finance filings make clear, her very well-funded campaign is woefully short on supporters who actually live in Malden. Smith taking on so much money from outside of our community is troubling to me and it should be similarly troubling to all Malden voters. A candidate with this type of corporate education agenda is hardly the “refreshing change” Smith’s campaign slogan touts. As a Ward 3 resident, as a Malden taxpayer, and as a parent who expects our city’s public district School Committee to work exclusively in the best interests of its students, I am extremely concerned about Smith’s motivations. You should be, too. Signed Elizabeth Paulsen Tonogbanua, Ed.D. 31 Grace St.

Support Jenn Spadafora for school comm. Dear Editor, Malden’s Ward 3 has a choice for its Public School Committee representative in two weeks, and the choice is clear. Jenn Spadafora is the transparent and responsive candidate. Jenn is a strong advocate for children, and her campaign is based on experience, not rhetoric. With deep roots in the community, and a graduate herself of Malden High, this mother of three has long-term involvement with the betterment of Malden Public Schools. Some examples of that include participating in the Beebe Parent Council and the Malden Special Education Par-

ent Advisory Council (SEPAC), as well as getting involved in the No on 2 campaign. Due to her public school volunteer efforts and her sincere, personable style, Jenn has earned the respect of teachers and teacher leaders over time. The Malden Education Association (MEA) has endorsed her for Ward 3 School Committee. Jenn Spadafora understands Malden’s diverse student body. She describes herself as the daughter of a strong, Black, single mom. Jenn continues this tradition of raising her own family in the Malden Public Schools. With a wealth of diversity with-

in her own family, including having a child with special needs, Jenn is able to provide an honest and authentic choice for Malden’s School Committee. Even more, Jenn Spadafora has the fiscal experience Malden so needs at a time when public schools are forced to do more with less. She understands how to operate with fiscal responsibility. As a professional in the Global Controllers department of a major financial services company, she has extensive experience working on complex, multi-million dollar budgets. Jenn’s life experience reso-

nates with many Malden residents. For me, as a Ward 3 voter, her background, her strength and continuity in the community, as well as her transparency absolutely make Jenn Spadafora the candidate with the winning qualifications to be my next School Committee representative. Please join me on Tuesday, November 7th in voting for Jenn Spadafora for Malden’s School Committee. Sincerely, Fern Remedi-Brown, M.Ed., MBA Ward 3 resident and mother of two children in the Malden Public Schools

Beacon Hill Roll Call By Bob Katzen THE HOUSE AND SENATE: Beacon Hill Roll Call records local senators’ votes on several roll calls on overriding some of Gov. Charlie Baker’s cuts of $320 million in spending in the $39.4 billion fiscal 2018 state budget. A two-thirds vote in both branches is needed for a veto to be overridden. The House has restored the entire $320 million and the Senate has restored only $75.8 million but plans to override other vetoes in the coming weeks. House and Senate Democratic leaders say Baker’s cuts would hurt many people including the sick, seniors, children and minorities. The governor and GOP leaders question if the state can afford to restore all this funding. Some Republicans said that because of this uncertainty they voted to sustain all of Gov. Baker’s vetoes, even though it meant voting against restoring funding for many good pro-

grams they would otherwise have supported. $2.5 MILLION FOR HIV AND AIDS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $2.5 million (from $30,834,416 to $28,334,416) for HIV, AIDS, viral hepatitis, sexually transmitted infections and tuberculosis programs. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $2.5 million.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $275,000 FOR PROSTATE CANCER (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $275,000 (from $550,000 to $275,000) for prostate cancer awareness, education and research programs focusing on men with African-American, Hispanic or Latino heritage, family history of the disease and other men at high risk. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $275,000.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes

$200,000 FOR STROKE PROGRAMS (H 3800) Senate 36-1, overrode a cut of the entire $200,000 for stroke treatment and prevention programs. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $200,000. A “No” vote is against it.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $100,000 FOR DOWN SYNDROME PROGRAMS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a cut of the entire $100,000 for a Down Syndrome Program at the Children’s Medical Center at the University of Massachusetts Memorial Medical Center in Worcester. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $100,000.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $1.1 MILLION FOR RECOVERY HIGH SCHOOLS (H 3800) Senate 37-0, overrode a reduction of $1.1 million (from $3.6 million to $2.5 million) for recovery high schools -- public schools where students can earn a high school diploma and are supported in their recovery from alcohol and drug use. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $1.1 million.) Sen. Jason Lewis Yes $150,000 FOR JOB TRAINING FOR YOUNG ADULTS WITH DISABILITIES (H 3800) Senate 36-1, overrode a cut

to plant trees so there won’t be problems with underground utilities, sidewalks and power lines. And the department has also become a lot wiser about which types

of the entire $150,000 for an employment training program for unemployed young adults with disabilities. (A “Yes” vote is for funding the $150,000. A “No” vote is against funding it.) Sen. Jason Lewis 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 ses-

plause from the audience of about 50 people at the Senior Center even though listeners were left wondering about what happened during the closed-door interviews. In addition to a second round of interviews, councillors agreed to take City Solicitor Kathryn Fallon’s advice and develop a matrix to evaluate the

candidates. Councillors agreed to develop a list of assets and qualities that can be numerically scored to help them assess the finalists. Councillors plan to interview the finalists sometime within the next week. Notices about times and places will be posted on the city’s website and at City Hall 48 hours before the interviews take place.

of trees will thrive in certain areas and which trees have roots that are sidewalkfriendly. Still, Knox acknowledges that a new tree can’t replace a 70-foot maple or oak that’s been part of a neigh-

borhood for generations. He also said that the new trees he plants each year won’t be a responsibility or concern for the DPW any time soon. “They won’t affect me,” he said. “They will affect the DPW director in the future.”

Massachusetts Senate Releases Healthcare Report and Draft Legislation to Contain Costs, Protect Consumers he Massachusetts Senate released a repor t “Working Together to Improve Our Health: Right Care, Right Place, Fair Price, Recommendations from the Senate Working Group on Health Care Cost Containment and Reform,” that focuses on both short and long terms goals on how to strengthen our healthcare system to lower costs, improve outcomes, and enhance access. The report and accompanying draft legislation is the result of a collaborative effort by a group of Senators to address the healthcare system by analyzing the best practices in other states and engaging stakeholders in a series of meetings over the last year. Healthcare costs are continuing to strain the budget of working families, businesses, and working families. The Senate has continued to push for reforms to the current system through diligent research, stakeholder engagement, and legislation. The working group of Senators, with the logistical support of the Milbank Memorial Fund spent the last year meeting with officials from seven states, healthcare experts, and stakeholders to examine best practices while lowering costs and improving outcomes. “Massachusetts should continue to lead on healthcare, and having a robust economy depends upon on lowering costs for everyone without compromising quality or access. The recommendations in this report will help working families, businesses, and our state budget,” said Senate President Stan Rosenberg. “I’m very proud of the work the Senate did to craft a comprehensive report and draft legislation that touches so many aspects of our healthcare system and meets the needs of all engaged stakeholders.” “This important legislation takes meaningful steps to both improve healthcare quality and outcomes, as well as contain costs,” said Senator Jason Lewis, who served on the Senate Working Group on Health Care Cost Containment and Reform, as Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Public Health. “More deeply, this legislation furthers efforts to address the social determinants of health that are responsible for many health inequities in our system; and, innovative steps are taken to make prevention a more central component of our health-

T

care system, which will improve our quality-of-life and save money.” The goals outlined in the report vary from more effective care delivery such as telemedicine and mobile integrated health to reducing emergency room visits to expanding provider versatility while also addressing price variation between larger hospitals and their smaller community hospital counterparts. The report outlines a series of recommendations that will achieve these goals and lower costs as a result of implementation. The bill takes concrete steps to expand provider versatility to increase access to lower cost providers. It expands provider treatment authority for nurse practitioners, certified registered nurse anesthetists, psychiatric clinical nurse specialists, optometrists, and podiatrists; additionally, it establishes a mid-level dental therapist (DT) certification. A DT would be able to perform procedures including basic tooth extractions, fillings, and taking x-rays, freeing up dentists to focus on

complicated cases. Currently, in Massachusetts over a half-million residents live in dentist shortage areas as defined by the US Department of Health and Human Services, and in 2014 only 35 percent of dentists treated MassHealth patients. As a result, 44 percent of children on MassHealth (over 284,000) did not see a dentist in 2015. This bill is uniquely designed to target those living in dentist shortage areas by allowing DTs additional freedoms to operate under non-profits and in a licensed mobile dentistry program. By reaching out to underserved populations, the culture around oral healthcare can begin to change. The bill also reauthorizes and updates the successful Prevention and Wellness Trust Fund (PWTF), and provides opportunities for new sources of funding, a major priority of Senator Lewis’. The PWTF funds community partnerships made up of municipal governments, healthcare providers, and local health and human service organiza-

tions, all working closely together to achieve a community-wide focus on prevention and wellness. Early results from an assessment conducted by Harvard Catalyst indicate that “to date, PWTF appears to be a very sound investment from the point of view of improving outcomes and controlling costs.” The report aims to reduce hospital re-admissions and emergency department use through mobile integrated health and telemedicine as well as expanding access to behavioral health. Massachusetts Health Policy Commission has estimated that 42 percent of all Emergency department visits are avoidable. Post-acute care in an institutional setting and long term care and supports (LTSS) cost the state an estimated $4.7 billion in 2015, a major cost driver for MassHealth. The report recommends increased transition planning for patients into community settings and strengthening coordination between providers. Pharmaceutical costs have been a driver of increased

healthcare costs for a number of years. The Center for Health Information and Analysis (CHIA) reported a 6.4 percent growth in pharmaceutical spending in 2016. Drug costs are making families choose between filling prescriptions and paying for other essentials like housing and food. The report recommends greater oversight and transparency in drug costs and encourages Massachusetts to enter into bulk purchasing arrangements, including a multistate drug purchasing consortium like other states, to lower costs and protect consumers. The scope of the report encompasses the whole system from Medicaid to the commercial market, and makes additional recommendations on how to lower costs, address price variation, increase price transparency for consumers, leverage better federal funding opportunities, and many other recommendations. A copy of the report and draft legislation can be found online at https://malegislature.gov/Committees/Detail/ S61/Documents.

45 Mystic Valley Seniors Win Adams Scholarships

orty-five of the eighty-nine members of the Mystic Valley Class of 2018 were recently notified that they have been awarded the Commonwealth of Massachusetts’ John and Abigail Adams Scholarship. Mystic Valley is one of a very small number of schools in which the majority of its graduating seniors received the scholarship awards. Approximately half of all of the Mystic Valley graduates to date have received the scholarships. The scholarship award entitles the

F

graduate to four years of tuition-free attendance at any Massachusetts state college or university. Matt Stone, Mystic Valley’s Assistant Director, Grades 9-12, was very happy with the results. After receiving the news he said: “Six years ago I was their teacher in 7th grade so it is an honor for me to see their success. It is a testament to the hard work of the students, their parents, and Mystic Valley community. I know they will

be productive members of our society who will contribute to making our communities better places!” The scholarship winners are: Omar Alani, Sofia Antonucci, Youssef Asrih, Phyllis Brady, Matthew Brewer, Thomas Callanan, Anthony Campana, Barry Chen, Connie Cheung, Nico D’Alleva, Michael Daly, Emily DaPonta, Hannah DiGiovanni, Raniyah Fanchaouy, Maggie Finn, Taylor Gibson, Philippe Guerrier, Jason He, Andrew How-

The win over Austin Prep came on Saturday and was a big win for the team, as they had lost to Austin Prep earlier in the season. The Ea-

gles won, 2-1, with a goal by Ethan Nguyen in the first half and Julian Ospina scoring the go-ahead goal in the second half. The defense played a great game despite missing three players who see regular time. Sophomore Ian Schofield stepped up and played a great game at left back,

and Steve Nguyen also stepped in to bolster the defensive ranks at right back. On Wednesday, the Eagles won, 3-2, over Whittier with goals by Ethan Nguyen, Anthony Russo-Penta and Soufyane Missbah. Nguyen, Henri Di and Ospina had assists on the goals.

GARDEN | FROM PAGE 1 planted this year. “We didn’t have enough to make a strawberry shortcake, but there were usually enough berries for a snack.” Tucked between Railroad Avenue and the Northern Strand Community Trail, and bordered by Faulkner and Bryant Streets, the Malden Community Garden is a hidden treasure filled with both familiar and unusual vegetable plants, florist shop flowers and gardeners who tend their individual gardens and work together to keep the site growing. Even last week, when gardeners were sweeping up and preparing their beds for winter, there were still plenty of juicy tomatoes and bunches of fragrant basil thriving throughout the garden. Ward 5 Councillor Barbara Murphy originally planned the project as a Ward 5 garden, but it didn’t take long for her to realize something this good should be shared with the entire community. She tapped funding available in the Community Development Block Grant and received private donations from Keurig, Inc. and

and 8th-grader Gianna Gray each added a goal for Mystic Valley. Three of the five goals scored in a playoff-clinching game being scored by 8th-graders certainly speaks well for the future of the program. Also on Tuesday, the boys’ soccer team put together a 1-1 draw with the Greater Lowell Gryphons. It was a backand-forth stalemate for most of the game until

Ethan Nguyen connected on a one-time banger from Julian Ospina in the 29th minute of the second half. Quickly, Greater Lowell capitalized with a goal on a penalty kick with minutes to go to tie it up. An aggressive attack from Mystic Valley in the final minutes of the game came up short, and both teams came away with a draw and a point in the standings.

Seeds of Change, a nonprofit organization that provides grants for community gardens. Volunteers from Bike to the Sea and Groundwork Somerville helped build the first section of the garden, which opened in the fall of 2013 with about 25 individual beds. Since then it has doubled in size, and Murphy is planning another expansion that should add about 25 more individual beds for gardeners and groups who are willing and able to pitch in to help keep the site going. She also has plans to use a patch of grass

along the garden as a performance space where local musicians can play for summer night gatherings. “There’s just so much collaboration and diversity here,” said Murphy as she pointed out a garden where Asian squash was still growing and another spot where spices were still available to flavor Turkish dishes. Members often cook what they grow and share their recipes and secrets with fellow gardeners. “The garden gives people a place to gather and learn about different cultures from

Everett took no prisoners against their rival Golden Tornadoes last Friday, maintaining their unbeaten record with a 44-0 win. The Crimson Tide did all their scoring in the first half. They took their foot off the gas in the third and fourth quarters, but Malden couldn’t escape the chokehold. For Malden and Coach Bill Manchester, who are winless on the year, the game was a positive learning experience. “I’d definitely say it’s a measuring stick,” Manchester said. “We spoke last week about how very few teams get the chance to host the best team in the state. It was a learning experience for us. We saw again that we did some good things and some not so good things. Most importantly, I think the guys get a sense of what it takes to play at this level.” Youth and inexperience have defined Malden this season, while their former Great-

T

er Boston League rivals have continued to roll without too much trouble as reigning Super Bowl champions. The Golden Tornadoes have had plenty to learn in a short amount of time. The opportunity to play Everett – and the season, overall – were good experiences for younger players, per Manchester. “The guys have come in committed every day, and heads haven’t dropped,” he said. “It’s a young team and I think they recognize that.” Manchester’s team plays on Thanksgiving against Medford, but they will likely have at least three more non-playoff games to round out the season. The first of those games is on Friday night against Haverhill, a recent playoff powerhouse that is suddenly growing through its own growing pains. “They’ve been very strong for quite a while, so this is an off-year for them,” said Manchester. “I think we match up well. We just want to show that we’re improving every week. I think our future is bright, but right now one of our goals is to start a one-game winning streak.”

one another,” said Murphy. Julie Mangan is the garden manager but she prefers the title Garden Queen. “I love being here,” said Mangan. “It’s never a chore.” But it is a lot of work and planning because there’s always something going on at the garden. There’s a garden group for young kids, cooking classes for tweens and special projects like cutting flowers and creating bouquets delivered to the Senior Center. Like other community gardens, Malden’s community

garden is meant to empower residents and help them form bonds to the community and the local environment. The garden encourages members to become active stakeholders in the community and to give back whenever they can. But all that seems to just come naturally to members who are just grateful to be outdoors working alongside of their fellow gardeners. “The garden gets people out and gets them talking to one another,” said Karen Buck. “It’s really way more than a garden.”

Bike to the Sea Inc. annual meeting on November 9 Celebrates 25 years of bike trail development

ike to the Sea, Inc. will celebrate its 25th anniversary at its annual meeting on Nov. 9 at Down the Road Beer Co., the newest brewery to open in Everett. The meeting, which is free and open to the public, will be held from 6 p.m. to 9 p.m. It will include food, beer and an inspiring talk by Craig Della Penna, a leader in the development of the Mass Central Rail Trail. Donations are encouraged. Beer tickets will be available with donation. A limited potluck buffet will be

B

available. The brewery is located at 199 Ashland St. in Everett. “We are happy to be a sponsor for Bike to the Sea and join them in celebrating 25 years of trail development as one of our newest customers,” said Down the Road’s taproom manager, Mellissa Conner. Years of work finally paying off For the past 25 years, Bike to the Sea, Inc. has worked on creating the Northern Strand Com-

Advocate

munity Trail, which now runs from Everett through Malden, Revere and Saugus and ends on the Lynn line. Plans are being made to continue the trail through Lynn and end at Nahant Beach. A major focus of the group this past year has been to pave the one-mile Revere segment of trail, which is now covered in gravel. Once this is paved, riders from the North Shore will easily and safely pass under Route 1 on their way to Boston, creating a truly regional bike trail on the scale of the popular Minuteman Bikeway that runs from Somerville to Bedford. For more information about this effort and to make a donation, visit biketothesea.com.

Connecting through Everett to the Casino In Everett the group has been supporting the city’s effort to extend the trail from its current end in the “Village” neighborhood to the Mystic River, which will help the trail connect to Boston. This work is being considered as traffic mitigation for the Wynn Boston Harbor resort/casino development. Saugus improvements coming next year In Saugus, Bike to the Sea, Inc. has been awarded a grant from the DCR Recreational Trails Program to improve trail access points, particularly at the Lynn town line. You will see these efforts take shape in the spring

and summer of 2018. Urban Art Project launched in Lynn In Lynn, and indeed along the entire length of the trail, Bike to the Sea has launched an exciting urban art project. The goal of this program is to link together the five communities through which the trail travels into a linear outdoor art gallery. The gallery’s culmination will be at Central Square in Lynn, where the “Beyond Walls” mural project is located. This onemile gallery could draw people from the larger region to explore the area by bike, helping to spur economic development and healthy, active lifestyles from Lynn to Boston.

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, October 27, 2017

COMPLAINT | FROM PAGE 1 caâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s brother, Richard Sica, Jr., was a tenant in AutoTechâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s building. Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license was cut back to five cars after Richard Sica, Jr. moved his business following disputes over unpaid rent and parking. Bukirch has written a letter of complaint to the Massachusetts Ethics Commission. But Councillor Sica said the Licensing Subcommittee had no choice but to cut back on the resale cars allowed at AutoTech because Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auto sales license was granted by a special permit from the Planning Board, which only allows five cars. According to Ward 7 Councillor Neal Anderson, who is chairman of the Licensing Subcommittee, when he and other members realized the conflict between the 23-car license they granted and the special permit, they sought to correct the error. Sica also said that itâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s possible Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s complaint is politically motivated because AutoTech has several campaign signs for Richard Correale, who is challenging her in the race for the Ward 8 City Council seat. But Bukirch said he placed the signs on his property after he filed his complaint when he found out Sica had an opponent. Bukirch said the idea of increasing his auto dealer license first came up during an inspection of the property by Malden Compliance Officer James Tuxbury back in 2015. Burkrich said an increase in his dealerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license would help his business, and Tuxbury encouraged him to apply for the change through â&#x20AC;&#x153;proper channels.â&#x20AC;? At the end of September 2015, the Licensing Subcommittee reviewed Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s application to increase his license from five to 23 cars. Tuxbury told committee members that the property was â&#x20AC;&#x153;neat and cleanâ&#x20AC;? and that Bukirch said there was enough space to accommodate the increase. According to the minutes of that meeting, Sica said she would like to see the increase granted. Bukirch was asked to submit a plot plan and to settle up some unpaid taxes, and ultimately the City Council, on the recommendation of the Licensing Subcommittee, approved Auto Techâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license to display and sell 23 cars for 2016. During the spring of 2016, the relationship between Bukirch and Richard Sica, Jr. deteriorated over problems

with unpaid rent and parking. Bukirch said he was also concerned with renovations Ricard Sica was doing to a vacant office space in the buildingâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s second floor. Richard Sica, Jr. relocated his business at the end of June 2016, and Bukirch said thatâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s when troubles started for his business. â&#x20AC;&#x153;As soon as he left, stuff started happening,â&#x20AC;? said Bukirch. First, there were several parking tickets for cars with dealersâ&#x20AC;&#x2122; plates parked in front of the shop on Eastern Avenue. Those tickets were ultimately dismissed. Bukirch said that during the summer of 2016, Councillors Sica and Anderson made an unannounced visit to the site. According to Councillor Sica, the Licensing Subcommittee was advised by former City Clerk Karen Anderson that the 23-car license needed to be reviewed because it conflicted with the Planning Boardâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s special permit. In October, Bukirch was told that his auto dealer license was under review. In November, he met with the committee to discuss problems with his license and city zoning ordinances. â&#x20AC;&#x153;We were concerned with the overuse of the space,â&#x20AC;? said Councillor Anderson, adding that there was a fear that cars would end up parked on the street. At that November meeting, Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s lawyer asked if Councillor Sica should be

deliberating on AutoTechâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license since her brother had adversarial business history with Bukirch. Sica recused herself and left the meeting. The Licensing Subcommittee then held Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s auto dealer license in abeyance to give him time to apply for a change in his special permit. Bukirch asked the Planning Board to increase his five-car permit to 10 cars. Last May, the Planning Board denied that application, saying it would be an overuse of the site, would change the nature of Auto Techâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business from repairs to sales and would, under city ordinances, require 47 parking spaces, which are not possible on the site. In its decision, the Planning Board also noted that the City Council erroneously granted a license for 23 cars. Bukirch, who has been in business in Malden for nearly three decades, said his hearing with the Planning Board was miserable. Planning Board members cited several permit violations, such as vehicles parked in front of garage doors, unregistered vehicles parked on the site and vehicles parked on Eastern Avenue. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They made me feel like a criminal,â&#x20AC;? said Bukirch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;They really didnâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t give me a chance. I canâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;t even tell you how they made me feel.â&#x20AC;? But what troubled Bukirch more than what he described as hostile questioning by the Planning Board

were emails from Councillors Sica and Anderson urging the board members to deny the request to allow 10 cars under the special permit. â&#x20AC;&#x153;I have received complaints regarding the congestion of parking in this area, and feel it would not be in the best interest of the neighborhood for you to grant this increase,â&#x20AC;? wrote Sica. â&#x20AC;&#x153;First, she approves an increase, and then she opposes it,â&#x20AC;? said Bukirch. â&#x20AC;&#x153;She recuses herself, but then she jumps back in.â&#x20AC;? Sica said she did not think her email to the Planning Board was a problem. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m not a member of that board,â&#x20AC;? she said. In his email to the Planning Board, Anderson focused on the number of cars at the AutoTech site which, in addition to Bukirchâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s business, houses two other auto-related shops. â&#x20AC;&#x153;With multiple businesses operating at this location and the current overflow of automobiles parked on the public

street, allowing an increase in auto sales would be detrimental to the neighborhood,â&#x20AC;? wrote Anderson. As of this writing, both Anderson and Sica have political signs at used automobile dealerships on Broadway. AutoTech is located in an industrial zone on the 1200 block of Eastern Avenue. The neighborhood is made up of other autorelated businesses and a welding supply shop. Holy Cross Cemetery is across the street from the shop. It is one of few places in Malden where parking a car is not an ordeal. Bukirch was clear that his dealings with the city over licensing have been detrimental to AutoTech. â&#x20AC;&#x153;This hurt my business, and I was harassed all last summer,â&#x20AC;? said Bukirch, adding that he had spent a significant amount of time and money pursuing an increase in his dealerâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;s license. â&#x20AC;&#x153;Iâ&#x20AC;&#x2122;m just starting to make up for it now,â&#x20AC;? he said.

RENTALS | SEE PAGE 13 this type of personal attack is what politicians often do – but it is definitely not my style. Ward 3 voters deserve better.” Despite Malden’s problems with several Airbnbs, most people would probably concede that the resource-sharing network offers alternative accommodations for travelers who can’t afford a four-star hotel. It also provides families, single moms, and other people scraping along and trying to make ends meet an opportunity to earn a little extra income. Failing to distinguish Treetops from an Airbnb doesn’t seem to rise to the level of a personal attack, and even if Matheson was deliberately vague, does associating someone with Airbnb qualify as slander? Has Julyan been watching City Council meetings lately? That’s where one can often see genuine slander being tossed around. The exchange between the Ward 3 councillor candidates over short-term rentals did not end there. When Matheson first proposed taking away tax exemptions for people who offer shortterm rentals, Julyan and her supporters again suggested it was a political attack. A reporter for The Boston Globe, a newspaper not known for its coverage of small urban community ward races, somehow found a way into the story, featur-

I have been out canvassing with Mekka, I see all of the joy and passion that she expresses when she talks with neighbors about her plans to fight for: all schools to take their fair share of kids; how district schools need more funding and support; and how discrimination of any kind against children is wrong. These are ideas that everyone can get behind and it’s what Mekka cares about and speaks about a lot. Here are some of the issues that Mekka stands for: • Making sure that all students, especially those who need additional support, receive the services they need; • Informing families about the resources available to

THE MALDEN ADVOCATE - Friday, October 27, 2017 ing a lead photo of Julyan at Treetops. But Julyan was not pleased with the Globe story on Malden’s short-term rentals and said that the paper “missed the point entirely.” “The ‘growing problem’ of short term rentals in Malden is predominantly about absentee landlord properties,” she wrote in a statement responding to the Globe. Julyan goes on to say that Matheson also missed the point by focusing his proposal entirely on owneroccupied properties rather than absentee landlords, the real problem that he has ignored for years. But as Councillor Murphy pointed out, the short-term rental issue has a lot of positive and negative spokes, and any entry point into the discussion is worth following. Finally, earlier this week Julyan posted a message on Nextdoor Malden announcing with “deep regret” that Treetops was temporarily shutting down while the City Council decides how to address the issue of owneroccupied short-term rentals. It was a hyper-dramatic and completely unnecessary response to a proposal that was merely referred to in a subcommittee meeting, and it seemed to reflect how little Julyan knows about the way the council functions, not to mention grandfather clauses. That message has since been deleted, but no doubt there will be more statements issued before Nov. 7.

I am encouraging you the residents in Ward 3 to please consider voting for Mekka Smith on November 7th. I am thrilled and happy that she’s running and I’ve seen the hard work that she has put into sharing her vision for our schools. I have no doubt that she will use her skills, energy and new ideas to work on behalf of our students of Malden. As her campaign slogan states, she would be “a refreshing change for Malden Public Schools.” Ted D. Louis-Jacques Malden Resident
