Senator Sal DiDomenico was recently honored by two organizations for his advocacy work on Beacon Hill.
The national anti-hunger campaign No Kid Hungry recently named DiDomenico as a 2020 Breakfast Hero contest recipient and he was recently named as a 2020 Legislative Reception Award honoree by the Jewish Community Relations Council (JCRC) and the Massachusetts Association of Jewish Federations (MAJF).
Last week, the Massachusetts Legislature overwhelmingly passed Senator Sal DiDomenico’s bill to fight childhood hunger and boost participation rates in school breakfast programs in schools with high percentages of students from low-income families in the Commonwealth. The bill, An Act regarding breakfast after the bell, would require all public K 12 schools with 60 percent or more students eligible for free or reduced-price meals under the federal National School Lunch Program to offer breakfast after the instructional day begins.
The American Federation of Teachers Massachusetts announced this week it is joining the much larger Massachusetts Teachers Association in urging its local affiliates to push their districts to begin the school year with instruction at home – at least for the first few weeks.
An Everett man has been charged with trying to damage the Boston FBI headquarters in Chelsea by scaling a perimeter fence and then breaking a window and pounding a door with rock in a failed attempt to get inside the building.
Brian Ricardo Dennis, 52, of Everett was charged in a criminal complaint with damaging government property following an appearance in Federal District Court in Boston Monday. He is being held without bail and will be detained until a probable cause and detention hearing this week.
Dennis allegedly scaled the perimeter fence at the Chelsea headquarters of the FBI on Friday, July 31 at 1:20 am.
Video surveillance recorded Dennis climbing over the fence, approaching an exterior door, banging on the door with his hands and then retrieving a large rock and repeatedly throwing the rock against the door, shattering it’s glass before he allegedly climbed back over the perimeter fence and left the area.
