Dear Colleagues:

On Thursday, April 19, 2018, the MPSA council held an emergency board meeting and voted

unanimously to 1) accept Professor William Jacoby’s resignation as AJPS editor, effectively immediately,

and 2) move quickly forward with installing a team of interim editors. We will share details as soon as the

terms of our agreement with the interim team are finalized. The MPSA Council is preparing a statement

that will be shared with the membership in the next several days.

Liz Gerber, MPSA President

Vince Hutchings, MPSA Past President

Sarah Binder, MPSA President-Elect

Will Morgan, MPSA Executive Director
