first_imgBiden says VTS COVID-19 vaccine clinic is example of ‘America at its finest’ By Adelle M. BanksPosted Apr 8, 2021 Associate Priest for Pastoral Care New York, NY President Joe Biden visited Virginia Theological Seminary on April 6, 2021, to celebrate the seminary’s provision of COVID-19 vaccines. Photo: Elizabeth Panox-Leach/Virginia Theological Seminary[Religion News Service] President Joe Biden visited a Virginia seminary chapel that is being used as a COVID-19 vaccination clinic as his administration moved up the date when he hopes all Americans will be eligible to get a vaccine.“We’re in a situation where we — I believe, by the end of this summer, we’ll have a significant portion of the American public vaccinated,” the president said on April 6 at Virginia Theological Seminary in Alexandria.“I think before another 25 days, we’ll probably have somewhere in excess of 200 million shots that have been administered.”Since early February, the Episcopal seminary has worked with Neighborhood Health, a nonprofit organization focused on health equity in Northern Virginia, to use the school’s Immanuel Chapel as a clinic for distribution of the COVID-19 vaccine to patients and family members.“Our chapel is continuing to share the gospel in this season, although it is taking a slightly different form,” said the Very Rev. Ian S. Markham, dean and president of VTS, in a statement. “The president’s visit to the campus is a celebration of a faith-based organization working in partnership with a neighborhood health association to ensure that people stay well and safe during this pandemic.”The chapel-turned-clinic has provided an average of 300 vaccinations twice a week.In remarks from the State Dining Room later in the day, Biden noted that the partnership is one of many such alliances between faith and medical institutions happening across the nation. Two-thirds of patients at such centers live below or at the poverty level, he said, and 60% are ethnic and racial minorities.“People are coming together across the different faiths to serve those most in need, with a special focus on vaccinating seniors from all races, backgrounds, and walks of life,” he said. ”It’s an example of America at its finest.”From Oklahoma to North Carolina to Washington, D.C., vaccination clinics have been hosted by houses of worship in conjunction with health professionals to inoculate older adults and others.Biden said his visit to the seminary coincided with “an important milestone”: The previous day “we crossed 150 million shots in 75 days” — his tenure in office to that date.But with the country reaching more than 554,000 COVID-19 deaths, Biden urged seniors in particular to “get vaccinated now,” as his new date of April 19 approaches of having all American adults eligible to register for vaccinations. The previous date was May 1.“To make it easier, my administration is sending aid to community groups to drive seniors to vaccination sites,” he said. “We’re incredibly grateful to all the volunteers, houses of worship, and the civic groups that are helping us in this effort.”Biden added that his staffers also will continue to link with faith-based and community groups as vaccinations become available to all adults — registering people for appointments, hosting clinics and transporting people to get their shots.This story was originally published by Religion News Service and is republished here with permission.

Court reprimands Judge Pando

first_imgDade County Judge Ana Maria Pando has been ordered to pay a $25,000 fine and be publicly reprimanded by the Florida Supreme Court for campaign financing violations, including misrepresenting a $25,000 personal loan from her mother during her unsuccessful 1998 campaign.In case no. SC04-1636, the court on May 12 approved the Judicial Qualifications Commission’s sanctions for Pando’s misconduct.According to the court’s order, Pando, from Coral Gables who was sworn in as a county judge January 26, 2001, and the JQC stipulated the following:• She “knowingly or recklessly accepted a $25,000 loan from a family member (her mother) made for the purpose of influencing the results of an election in excess of the $500 limit on contributions proscribed by law. Further, she misrepresented the source of this loan in an attempt to avoid the $500 contribution limit.”• She certified the correctness of campaign loan reports when “she knew the reports were incorrect, false, or incomplete because they failed to disclose that her mother, Millie Bencomo, and her stepfather, Esteban Bencomo, and/or their respective businesses were a source of numerous loans in excess of the $500 limit.”• “She inaccurately reported the source of certain of her contributions in her campaign finance reports.”• During the course of her deposition by special counsel on July 2, 2003, “she made statements tending to mislead the JQC as to a purported loan that she received from Eastern National Bank.”“A review of the stipulation entered into by Judge Pando and the JQC, as well as the JQC’s findings, demonstrates by clear and convincing evidence that Judge Pando’s conduct violated Chapter 106 of the Florida Statutes and canons 1, 2, and 7 of the Code of Judicial Conduct,” the court said.In a specially concurring opinion, Justice Fred Lewis wrote: “I continue to hold the view that if conduct is so egregious as to require enormous monetary fines, the judicial office itself has been soiled and damaged. If we continue down this path, in my view, we undermine trust and confidence in the judicial system.”Pando “certainly did not engage in the type of conduct condemned in Kinsey, 842 So. 2d 77 (Fla. 2003),” Justice Lewis wrote. “However, I continue to believe as I voiced in Kinsey :. . . ‘Selecting an enormous fine as discipline only sends the message that “anything goes” in judicial elections if a candidate has the ability to pay the monetary consequences.. . . ’” Court reprimands Judge Pando Court reprimands Judge Pandocenter_img June 1, 2005 Regular Newslast_img read more
