BOSTON – State Representative Timothy R. Madden (Barnstable, Dukes & Nantucket) would like to congratulate the students in his district that represented their High Schools in this years, the 67th Annual Student Government Day at the State House in Boston earlie this month. Participants included James Driscoll and Sara Buscher of Falmouth High School, August Welles and Russell Shapiro of Martha’s Vineyard Regional High School and Grace Mulcahy and Olivia Slade of Nantucket High School.

Since 1947, Student Government Day has afforded students from across the Commonwealth an opportunity to take on the roles of Governor, state legislators, constitutional officers and court justices to see what it is like to “run” State Government.

All five students in attendance were assigned as members of the House of Representatives and participated in events in the House Chamber.  They engaged in mock debates, simulated Committee hearings and formal Senate and House  sessions while shadowing their assigned official.

“It was wonderful to see so many students from the district in the building and participating in this unique experience including spending the day with government officials and observing the process of government first hand,” said “Representative Madden. “I was pleased to have the oppertunity to see Thomas, Vincent and Nikolay again as well as meet Meghan and Kevin for the first time”.

Student Government Day participants are selected by a process similar to local elections. Elections to select student delegates and their alternates are traditionally held in high schools throughout the state on the first Tuesday in November.

Derrill Bazzy of Aquinnah and Philippe Jordi of West Tisbury were two of ten “Community Preservation Heroes” selected statewide and honored by the Community Preservation Coalition at a ceremony Tuesday at the State House in Boston.

The two Islanders received Kuehn Community Preservation Awards, named for Robert H. Kuehn Jr., who was instrumental in the drafting and passage of the Community Preservation Act (CPA) in Massachusetts, signed into law in 2000. They also received citations from the Massachusetts House of Representatives, presented by Representative Tim Madden, and congratulations from Speaker of the House Robert DeLeo.

The Kuehn Community Preservation Awards honor individuals who have made significant contributions to the CPA’s success in communities across the state, and whose work best exemplifies the spirit of Mr. Kuehn’s legacy, according to a press release.

Mr. Bazzy was recognized for his work as chairman of Aquinnah’s Community Preservation Committee since its start in 2002. Mr. Jordi, the Executive Director of the Island Housing Trust, was recognized for his work over the last 17 years as a developer and manager of affordable community housing for the Island Housing Trust and the Dukes County Regional Housing Authority.

CPA funding comes from a surcharge of up to three percent on property taxes, plus a variable state match from real estate deed recording fees, to raise money for open space, historic preservation, affordable housing, and outdoor recreation.
