first_imgOlivia Covington for www.theindianalawyer.comn a decision handed down one day before Indiana’s 2018 primary election, the 7th Circuit Court of Appeals found a rational relationship between an Indiana statute prohibiting sex offenders from entering school property and the state’s interest in protecting children. The court ruled the state does not violate a convicted sex offender’s voting rights by prohibiting him from voting at a polling place located in a high school and instead requiring him to vote via one of three alternatives.In Brian Valenti v. Connie Lawson, et al., 17-3207, Valenti was convicted in 1993 of a lewd or lascivious act with a child under 14 in California and served 10 years in prison. Valenti later moved to Indiana, where he is considered a serious sex offender who is prohibited from knowingly or intentionally entering school property pursuant to Indiana Code section 35-42-4-14(b).That prohibition poses a problem for Valenti on election days, because his neighborhood polling location is in the Blackford County High School gym. Instead of voting in the high school gym, state law allows Valenti to vote via absentee ballot, at the county courthouse, or at the local civic center.Despite those options, Valenti sued the state under the First and 14th Amendments, arguing the prohibition on his entering the high school gym violates his right to vote. Valenti’s as-applied challenge sought declaratory and injunctive relief, but the U.S. District Court for the Southern District of Indiana granted summary judgment to the state after finding the state’s interest in protecting children from serious sex offenders outweighed the “minimal burden” imposed on Valenti. The court relied on the balancing test laid out in Burdick v. Takushi, 504 U.S. 428, 112 S. Ct. 2059, 119 L.Ed. 2d 245 (1992) to reach that decision.The 7th Circuit Court of Appeals upheld the grant of summary judgment to the state on Monday, though Senior Judge J. Phil Gilbert — sitting by designation from the Southern District of Illinois — said the district court’s reasoning was wrong. Gilbert pointed to Indiana’s practice of allowing felons to vote once they have been released from prison, but with some restrictions such as those imposed on sex offenders such as Valenti.“Accordingly, Valenti only has a statutory right to vote here, not a constitutional right,” Gilbert wrote. “And since the Indiana statute does not infringe on any fundamental right or suspect class, it only requires rational basis review — not something higher, like the constitutional balancing test seen in Burdick.”The 7th Circuit then found that the restriction placed on Valenti survives rational basis review because Indiana’s interest in keeping serious sex offenders away from schools is rationally related to I.C. 35-42-4-14(b).FacebookTwitterCopy LinkEmailSharelast_img read more

first_imgDear Friends,I’m sad to report on the passing of two citizens who were dedicated to the service of their country and community. Joe Somerville and Don Doll died last week, and I’d like to extend my deepest condolences to all of their family and friends.Joe served two years in U.S. Army and led a successful business career before retiring to Ocean City. He was an officer and long-time member of Fairness in Taxes, a former chairman of Ocean City’s Utility Advisory Commission, a citizen representative on the city’s Floodplain Management Committee, and a member of the former Economic Advisory Council. Somerville was never afraid to speak his mind and did not always agree with city officials. But his loyalties were always with Ocean City and with his fellow citizens.Don was a U.S. Air Force veteran and a long-time member of the American Legion Morvay-Miley Post 524 in Ocean City. He was a two-time president of the Ocean City Board of Realtors. He served on Ocean City’s Zoning Board and Historic Preservation Commission. As an officer and active member of the Exchange Club of Ocean City, Don was involved in planning Ocean City events like the annual Halloween Parade, Miss Ocean City Pageant and Exchange Club Fishing Tournament. He was also a member of the Miss Night in Venice Committee.Joe and Don are great examples of the community spirit that makes Ocean City unique, and they both will be missed.I want you all to be aware that the paving contractor for South Jersey Gas will be restoring streets this month that were excavated during an upgrade to high-pressure lines earlier this year. Milling and paving on Asbury Avenue from 21st Street through 29th Street is expected to start on Monday (May 8). Crews then will move on to West Avenue from 12th Street to 16th Street (starting approximately May 15). All work is scheduled to be complete before Memorial Day Weekend.Ocean City is the subject of a case study published by the U.S. Communities Government Purchasing Alliance. The article explains how the Purchasing Office saved the city $44,517 per year or more than $220,000 over the term of a 60-month contract without sacrificing any productivity. The feature is great example of the day-to-day work that all city departments do to increase efficiency and save taxpayer dollars. Read the complete story .Our 35th annual Spring Block Party is scheduled for 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. tomorrow (Saturday, May 6) on Asbury Avenue between Fifth Street and 14th Street. Parking in the area of the block party will be free on Saturday. I hope you get a chance to stop by and check out all that our downtown merchants and event vendors have to offer.Warm regards,Jay A.

first_imgGovernor Wolf Declares “Juneteenth National Freedom Day” in Pennsylvania June 19, 2019 Holidays,  Press Release Harrisburg, PA – Today, Governor Tom Wolf signed into law Act 9, formerly House Bill 619, which designates June 19 as “Juneteenth National Freedom Day” in Pennsylvania.“While Independence Day marks the conception of a free nation, Juneteenth is a celebration of the fulfillment of this ideal through the Emancipation Proclamation,” said Gov. Wolf. “In honoring this day, I encourage all Pennsylvanians to reflect on the struggles and sacrifices our forefathers made to give us freedom, while realizing the importance of continuing to build a nation that truly reflects the self-evident truth that all people are created equal.”Juneteenth, a portmanteau of June and nineteenth, recognizes news of the Emancipation Proclamation reaching the furthest point in the south, Galveston, Texas, on June 19, 1865. Slaves were previously unaware they had been made free nearly two years earlier until Union soldiers reached them after the conclusion of the Civil War. Act 9 establishes Juneteenth as an official annual observance in Pennsylvania.“I am thrilled to see House Bill 619, Juneteenth National Freedom Day, signed by the governor, and I thank him and my colleagues in the House and Senate for their unanimous support,” said Rep. Sue Helm, who sponsored the legislation. “I hope that the annual observance of Juneteenth will lead to more knowledge and awareness of the events that unfolded in the years after the Emancipation Proclamation, and will help to tell the whole story of the abolition of slavery.”“On Juneteenth, we commemorate the day when millions of African Americans were freed from the horrors of slavery. We also celebrate the continued education and achievement of African Americans, in the face of overwhelming discrimination and hardship,” said Rep. Stephen Kinsey, Chairman of the Pennsylvania Legislative Black Caucus. “Today should be a reminder to us – as individuals, as institutions – to recommit to liberty, justice and equality, so we can move our nation forward, providing opportunities and promoting success for all.”center_img SHARE Email Facebook Twitterlast_img read more
