Senator Boncore Appointed Chair of Transportation

January 25, 2018   Story  John Lynds – Revere Journal Staff   With a major international airport, highway, toll plaza and the MBTA Blue Line in his district it made sense for Senate President Harriette Chandler to appoint Sen. Joseph Boncore (D-Winthrop), who represents East Boston, Revere, Winthrop, the North End and part of Cambridge as the new Senate Chair of the Joint Committee on Transportation.  Former Senator Tom McGee previously held the post until he resigned his seat upon winning election as the mayor of the City of Lynn.   Senator Boncore has served as the Vice Chair of the Committee on Transportation and has taken lead on issues related to MBTA privatization and transit-oriented housing development.  Senator Eric Lesser (D – Longmeadow) was appointed to as the committee’s Vice Chair.   “The need for effective and efficient transportation intersects with the need for affordable housing, economic opportunity, and …

Revere to receive $9,700 in S.A.F.E Grants

ADVOCATE NEWS ONLINE   January 19, 2018 BOSTON – Governor Charles Baker, Secretary of Public Safety and Security Daniel Bennett, State Fire Marshal Peter Ostroskey and Revere’s state delegation are pleased to announce that the grant funds for Student Awareness of Fire Education (S.A.F.E.) and Senior SAFE Programs have been awarded for FY2018. The Revere Fire Department has been awarded $6,700 for the S.A.F.E Program and $3,000 for the Senior Safe Program. Twenty-three years ago, the S.A.F.E. Program was created. Since that time, average annual child fire deaths have been reduced by 72%. More recently, a similar fire safety education program was created to offer funds to local communities in support of senior fire-prevention training because seniors are the most vulnerable of populations at risk of fire-related deaths. Senior SAFE is aimed at educating seniors on fire prevention, general home safety and how to be better prepared in the event of …

Ward 5 Councillor John Powers:We Must Be Better Prepared for Natural Disasters

January 10, 2018 By Journal Staff Last week’s major coastal flooding in our city and other Massachusetts communities served as a reminder of the immense respect we must have for nature, and a warning of the growing consequences of increasingly extreme weather. There is plenty of anecdotal and scientific evidence to support the claim that our climate is going to extremes more frequently. In recent years we have seen several major weather events in Revere that, in days gone by would have qualified as once-in-a-lifetime happenings. The winter of 2015 pummeled us. A tornado ripped through the middle of our city. The floodwaters last week – wich submerged Pearl Avenue, Winthrop Parkway, Riverside and for the first time I can ever remember crested over North Shore Road – seemed to rival what we dealt with in the Blizzard of ’78. Also last week, the Chelsea Creek rose high enough to …

Revere Deputy Fire Chief Paul Cheever deals with these buildings, new and old, every day. As a licensed engineer and a firefighter, he is uniquely positioned to work with builders to make sure fire safety is addressed.  In addition to these developments, there are more four hotels planned for the city and more development being proposed. “What concerns us is the wood-frame construction,” said Fire Chief Christopher Bright. “Deputy Chief Cheever has been way ahead on this.” Fires have started on construction sites in Waltham and Cambridge.
