  Mayor Brian Arrigo announced last week that he would not be running for reelection, ending his years of service as mayor later this year. Last week he spoke of the city’s triumphs and goals throughout his time as mayor in the annual State of the City Address at the auditorium of the Susan B. Anthony and Whelan Schools. This year’s address was rather short compared to in years past. RevereTV streamed the mayor’s speech, as has been done every year, on social media and RTV GOV. You can watch it again at your convenience on RevereTV’s YouTube page.

  Last week was a popular week in local government meetings. There has been large public attendance at Ways and Means Subcommittee and City Council meetings over the past few months as councillors heard public comment and expert opinion and debated about moving forward on plans to build Revere a new high school. The building plans and process discussion has been taking place at meetings over the past few years and ramped up as they tried to meet certain deadlines this month. The plans were voted favorably out of subcommittee last week, and the official vote of the City Council to approve or disapprove was held right after. You can watch the Revere City Council vote on this matter as well as other agenda items as the meetings replay on RTV GOV and remain posted on YouTube.

  You might be familiar with RevereTV’s public service announcement postings called “In the Loop.” These are announcements based on city flyers posted the week of recording and include information about initiatives, events and programs around Revere. The latest recording of “In the Loop” is a message about road construction happening in Beachmont.

  This week you will see a similar announcement series called “Focus on Health Minute.” These short minute-long videos are like the “In the Loop” PSAs, but they are actually a spin off from the Board of Health’s monthly program called “Focus on Health.” Instead of the half-hour long interview style show, these recordings will be focused on a public health issue and summarized and explained in a brief minute. The “Focus on Health Minute” will also be posted to RevereTV’s YouTube page and will be played in between programming on RTV.
