NEW BUFFALO — Berrien County Commissioner Ezra Scott has been invited to meet with top officials in Washington so many times, he says he’s lost track.

Scott said Tuesday will be the fifth or sixth time he’s traveled to the nation’s capital, this time to take part in a meeting about Operation Warp Speed, the public-private partnership aimed at accelerating the development, manufacturing and distribution of the COVID-19 vaccines.
