    Hello Joe, I just wanted to take a second to thank you for being a part of the Everett Chamber of Commerce event tonight. It was an absolute pleasure to share the night with you where the Sober Shuttle was acknowledged for their support in the fight against the Opioid Epidemic. Please know that we stand by your side and we are here to partner in any way necessary!

    Dear Representative,

    I am writing to request that you consider co-sponsoring MTA-backed amendments to the House budget that together will provide the Commonwealth’s public K-12 and higher education students with the resources they need to thrive, and support our active and retired public employees.

    Specifically, I ask that you sign on to the following MTA-backed amendments:

    Amendment #246 filed by Rep. Sean Garballey (D-Arlington) – Implements the Recommendations of the FBRC

    This amendment would add the funding and language needed to establish an annual schedule-setting process to implement all five recommendations of the FBRC: the English learner increment; low-income increment; healthcare costs; special education enrollment and costs; and the school-level data advisory commission.

    Amendment #403 filed by Rep. Gerard Cassidy (D-Brockton) – Increases Economically Disadvantaged Calculation in the Foundation Budget

    This amendment would increase the economically disadvantaged calculation in the Foundation Budget. Foundation budget per pupil rates are adjusted annually for inflation. However, in H.4400 as well as Governor Baker’s FY19 budget proposal, the economically disadvantaged decile rates were not adjusted for inflation and they were reduced from the FY18 rates, as DESE was able to identify more economically disadvantaged students than in FY18. This reduction in the rates is a step backward in addressing the inadequacies in the foundation budget as determined by the FBRC.

    Amendment #156 filed by Rep. Natalie Higgins (D-Leominster) – Increases Funding for the State’s Higher Education Institutions

    This amendment would add much needed funds to Massachusetts public higher education campuses at the levels requested by public higher education systems.

    Amendment #TBD filed by Rep. Marjorie Decker (D-Cambridge) – Mandates Recess as Part of the School Day in Grades K-5

    This amendment would mandate at least 20 minutes of unstructured recess per school day for students in grades K-5 as part of a school’s structured learning time.

    Amendment #13 filed by Rep. Frank Smizik (D-Brookline) – Freezes Municipal Retirees’ Health Premiums in Certain Communities

    This amendment extends the current prohibition on raising healthcare premiums splits for retired municipal employees in cities and towns that have adopted the municipal health care reform law. Without this change, these communities would be permitted to increase the percentage of premiums paid by retirees to 50% as of July 1, 2018. This proposed amendment would extend the current prohibition for an additional 2 years.

    Amendment #379 filed by Rep. Dan Cullinane (D-Boston) – Adds Labor Seats to the GIC and Requires Advanced Notice Prior to Votes

    This amendment adds two additional labor representatives to the GIC and makes changes to how all labor seats are appointed.

    It also increases transparency in GIC decision-making by requiring 21 days advance notice and public hearings prior to votes on major issues impacting subscribers.

    Thank you for your time and attention in this important matter, and for all you do in support of public education and public employees.

    Hello Joe;

    We run into each other during your campaign walkthrough Everett when you walked by near my house and we spoke of our mutual appreciation for politics between your work in the eState House and my work with the federal government. I wanted to have a moment of your time to discuss an important issue with you regarding changes in the flight path to Logan that puts airplanes right over Malden and Everett at an alarmingly low altitude. My neighbors, like myself, are impacted by this in many ways. Just when Everett has been named within the top three cities for coming development, I don’t want to see something like a flight path hamper Everett’s progress. You offered a moment of your time when we met and I hope that I can take you up on that offer. Please let me know when you may have a convenient day to speak.

    Happy Memorial Day;

    Ken Kato

    Joe Mc Gonagle can be assured of the support of all the Mc Gonagles throughout the US.

    This Mc Gonagle’s family are native to the Clonmany/Ballyliffen area , in Inishowen, N. West Donegal. You need to be very careful there if you say anything bad about the Mc Gonagles there as there is likely to one nearby listening – or they are married to one!

    Many people from the Clonmany area emigrated to Boston at the turn of the century – there was actually a Clonmany Assocation in Boston and they raised a lot of money for the building of the church back home. A lot of them were young girls who came over to see what was going on and stayed. There wasn’t an awful lot going on back home at the time!

    My grandparents were married in 1911 in Boston in St. Cecilia’s Church I believe.

    Granny did not care for the American ways so her husband had to follow her back home, eventually!

    Mr. McGonagle, please vote “NO” on the bathroom bill. This is a disaster for the parents and children of Everett.
