PEABODY AND LYNNFIELD REPS SET 2017 GOALS

 

PEABODY AND LYNNFIELD REPS SET 2017 GOALS

January 5, 2017

By LEAH DEARBORN

PEABODY — Fresh from being sworn in to new terms, state Rep. Thomas Walsh (D-Peabody) and state Rep. Bradley H. Jones Jr. (R-Reading) said they are opening their offices to constituents to hear their views and ideas.

Walsh’s first open office of the year at the Torigian Family Health Center will be Jan. 13 from 9-10 a.m.

“I’m very pleased to be sworn into a full two-year term,” said Walsh, who was sworn in at the State House Jan. 4. “It’s been a very interesting several months.”

Walsh won the 12th Essex representative seat last spring that had been vacated in September of 2015 by Leah Cole.

Jones, who was also reelected for an eighth term as minority leader of the Massachusetts House of Representatives, said residents of Lynnfield, North Reading, Reading and Middleton tend to visit his office for two sets of reasons.

“They might want to talk about an idea they have for legislation. The other side is people having a particular problem,” said Jones. “It goes from policy to personal.”

Constituents can also arrange for individual appointments and he called every coffee shop in the area his office. Jones’ office hours will be the second Friday of every month at Lynnfield Town Hall from 9-10 a.m., beginning Jan. 13.

Walsh said one of his newest initiatives is a collective effort through city government and state Sen. Joan Lovely to conduct a study exploring the use of existing rail lines to run a trolley to the Salem MBTA Station.

“I see it as an economic development tool,” said Walsh. “It’s something we would like to pursue.”

Walsh said the initiative is still in the preliminary stages and that the first step is to secure funding to hire a consultant.

“I think it’s the future,” said Walsh. He added that Mayor Edward A. Bettencourt Jr. and city council have done a very effective job rejuvenating the downtown, but that there are still vacancies in a number of buildings.

Additional transportation options will help fill those vacancies and bring more young professionals into the city, he said.

Walsh was elected to city council in 2015 for a two-year term as well, which he plans to complete. He said he will not seek reelection to the council when that term is up.

CITY COUNCIL FACING QUESTION OF LEADERSHIP

LYNN The new year will bring fresh leadership to the city council.

Ward 3 Councilor Darren Cyr has lined up votes to be the next city council president and Councilor-at-Large Buzzy Barton has secured the vice president post. The vote is expected to take place on the council’s first meeting of 2017.

“I believe Buzzy and I have the votes,” said Cyr. “We will be an unbelievable team, we are all about openness and have already had lots of discussions and are looking forward to working with the mayor to make sure things keep moving in the city.”

City Council President Daniel Cahill, who was elected to the legislature in May, told councilors he planned to step down as president in January. He had been juggling being a councilor-at-large, state representative and working at a Lynn law firm. In addition, he has a wife and two young children. “The council presidency takes up a great deal of time,” he said. “It’s a lot of extra work. In order for me to be an effective city councilor, state legislator, lawyer, father and husband, I needed to relax some of my obligations and the presidency was a likely choice.”

Cahill won’t say whether he will run for reelection to the council in 2017.

City councilors earn $25,000 annually and the council president gets an extra $2,000.

Councilor-at-Large Brian LaPierre said he is looking forward to serving with Cyr as council president.

“He’s been a great mentor over the years and we have been friends for a long time,” he said. “His leadership style will complement the council in 2017 and I look forward to big and little projects as we move the city forward and continue working well together as a council.”

On Barton’s selection as vice president, LaPierre said he has known his family for many years.

“In this new capacity, he will be able to showcase his leadership talents,” he said. “Together Cyr and Barton will be a formidable force on the Lynn City Council to lead us in 2017.”

Ward 1 Councilor Wayne Lozzi said he was a candidate for council president because the job requires someone who can work with the business community, understand issues facing residents, has experience at City Hall and can work with the mayor.

“It’s a void that I could have filled,” he said. “But you need six votes and I wasn’t going to get there. That said, Cyr will make a fine president, I’m supporting him and I expect the vote will be unanimous.”

Ward 7 Councilor Jay Walsh also put his support behind Cyr.

“He’s a good leader who will bridge the gap between businesses and residents,” he said. “He is a good fit.”

Barton said he’s reluctant to comment until the councilors vote. “I’m voting for Councilor Cyr for president and I’m a candidate for vice president,” he said. “But beyond that, let’s wait to see what happens.”

SAUGUS ON THE MOVE WITH RIVERWALK

 

web-11-2-16-saugus-vitale-park-4

ITEM FILE PHOTO
Lt. Gov. Karyn Polito tours the area where the projected RiverWalk will go with Town Manager Scott Crabtree and Carolyn Kirk, right, executive director of the Seaport Economic Council in this November 2016 file photo.

Saugus’ RiverWalk plan deserves praise for being a home-grown project inspired by town residents and for the opportunity it potentially provides to transform a stretch of the river bank into park land.

First imagined in 2013 and refined during public meetings, including one last week, the RiverWalk accomplishes several important goals by providing pedestrians with access to the town’s largest natural resource and channeling foot traffic past businesses along the river.

More planning needs to be done to make the project a reality. But the preferred option for the path’s course along or near the river spans 15 properties for a distance just over half a mile.

The RiverWalk’s hidden beauty is its ability to expand over years and decades.

The preferred option plan links the proposed walk to walking and bicycling paths planned as part of the Belden Bly Bridge project. Access from the trail across the bridge into Lynn opens the possibility of creating a RiverWalk extension on the Lynn side of the river between Western Avenue and Boston Streets.

Future efforts to allow Lynn residents to walk along the river with ease could coincide with an increase in housing construction in the neighborhood wedged between Western Avenue and the river.

The RiverWalk also offers expansion potential in the direction of Revere with state restoration plans aimed at preserving Rumney Marsh’s natural acreage. To its credit, Saugus Wheelabrator already offers bird watchers and walkers opportunities to explore marsh and uplands off Route 107.

It makes sense to make the RiverWalk plan a reality and then work to connect it to Lynn and expand the walking path to connect with the beautiful marsh vistas located between Revere and Saugus.

It’s rare when a community successfully combines land preservation and open space plans with economic development efforts on a relatively small scale. But that is what the town has in mind with plans to couple riverside pedestrian access with the goal of bringing in new riverside businesses, including ones linked to the river’s commercial fishing industry.

Saugus has again proven it is adept at forward thinking and neighboring communities are sure to benefit from the town’s vision.

ROWE ELECTED CITY CLERK

In a 6-5 vote, Janet Rowe, the Lynn’s assistant clerk for more than a decade, was elevated to city clerk by the city council on Tuesday night.

She replaces Mary Audley, who has held the position since 2001 but plans to retire at the end of January.

Rowe bested Andrea Crighton who has worked as a clerk in state Senate on Beacon Hill for 11 years and is married to state Rep. Brendan Crighton.

Just minutes before the vote, City Council President Daniel Cahill announced a third candidate, former city councilor and attorney Timothy Phelan, had withdrawn from consideration. Sources said he lacked the votes to get the position which pays about $100,000.

“I am so happy,” Rowe told The Item following the vote. “I’m just surprised that Tim Phelan dropped out. So it came down to the two of us and I’m really just so thrilled.”

Rowe will take over the job at a time when Mayor Judith Kennedy Flanagan and the council are at odds over the hiring of a deputy election commissioner to augment the city clerk’s office. Last summer, the panel hired Michele Desmarais for the new position in time for this fall’s elections. But the mayor refused to fund the job, saying the city doesn’t need and can’t afford it. Desmarais was later named to head the city’s health department.

Looking ahead, Rowe said there will be a smooth transition as she takes over the clerk’s office.

“I pretty much know what’s ahead of me,” she said. “I’m ready for the challenge. I think I can take it on. I love the people I work with, I love the office so I’m not afraid of it and I’m looking forward to it.”

Ward 7 City Councilor Jay Walsh said Rowe was the logical candidate to fill the position.

“She’s been there, doing the job and I think she’s a good fit,” he said.

At-Large Councilor Brian LaPierre said Rowe has had many years to prepare for the job.

“Janet will serve our city very well as city clerk, she’s done the job as an assistant, she’s got huge shoes to fill in replacing Mary Audley,” he said. “Her selection was in the best interest of the city and she’s a hard worker.”

3-ALARM FIRE ON CHESTNUT STREET

Image result for breaking news logo

 

There were no injuries in a 3-alarm fire at 259 Chestnut St. that reportedly began at 3 a.m.

Lynn District Fire Chief Stephen Archer said it was too early to determine the cause of the blaze. By 6:30 a.m., the fire was mostly out with a few remaining hotspots.

“It just wouldn’t go out,” said Chestnut Street resident Kalisha Mullen, whose cousin is a tenant in the building.

Vanak Hok, who is the next-door neighbor of the house that caught fire, said it was frightening to see flames so close to home.

Fire Chief James McDonald confirmed that the property was a sober living house. McDonald did not know where the residents will be directed after the fire.
