Public Integrity welcomes Dr. Brandi Blessett (Rutgers University) as its new Book and Film Review Editor, who is taking over the Editorship from Dr. Heather Getha-Taylor (University of Kansas).  

Dr. Getha-Taylor has a stellar record of leadership and professionalism in her role as Editor, growing and developing the range of topics, scholarly focus, and number of book reviews published in Public Integrity.  Under her tenure the Journal expanded this section to include film reviews, researched and developed the author guidelines for this initiative and wrote the first Call for film reviews.  Her expertise and excellent judgement will be dearly missed and we are all grateful.  She recommended and strongly endorsed Dr. Brandi Blessett for this role, and we immediately celebrated her choice.  

Dr. Blessett brings to Public Integrity an esteemed record of scholarship and leadership, and we’re delighted to welcome her to the Editorial Team.  Dr. Blessett has begun her position well very prepared by Dr. Getha-Taylor and the transition has been seamless.  We are excited about her ideas for the continuing growth of this key section, and know she will play an invaluable role in achieving our  collective goals for the Journal, it’s support of the SEIGOV section, ASPA membership, and to the broader academic community.  Please reach out to them with both thanks and welcome.
