City of Everett dedicates Memorial Stone to Steve Supino


  Mayor Carlo DeMaria, alongside family members of Steve Supino, gathered at Wehner Park to unveil a new memorial stone that was placed in honor of his memory. Supino was described as one of the most compassionate and hardworking team members who served the City of Everett and saw each day of his service to the City as an opportunity to help someone. He was particularly devoted to working on issues to support families.

  “Steve was an exemplary member of the City team because he went above and beyond to provide assistance,” said Mayor DeMaria. “If a resident or a colleague asked Steve for help with an issue, he would take care of not only that issue, but also find additional supports and services that he thought might help the situation. He offered his help in a kind manner and made sure that those in need of services got the help they needed in a respectful and dignified way. There aren’t enough words or space to share with you all the wonderful messages I have received from so many people Steve helped over the years.”

  Supino was instrumental in bringing the Boys & Girls Club and YMCA programs to Everett, worked with First Lady Stacy and Mayor DeMaria to help establish the Wellness Center, helped create the shoveling assistance program and the home cleanup program for seniors, worked with families after devasting fires, finding housing for residents who were homeless, worked with the Department of Transitional Assistance to find housing solutions for families facing housing instability, worked with Mystic Valley Elder Services and worked with the team at the Connolly Center and as part of the 3-1-1 team.

  “Steve Supino was a great person who loved his family and who loved Everett,” said Mayor DeMaria. “He persevered in his public service despite the personal health challenges he faced. Steve always put the needs of the residents he served and those of his own family ahead of his own. That kind of work ethic and commitment is inspirational. I hope that like me, each time you see Steve’s plaque, you will be reminded of the difference that the kindness and compassion we show one another can make in this City, which is the greatest legacy that Steve left to our community.”
