Jim VerhulstJournalist, Tampa Bay Times

Jim Verhulst edits the op-ed page at the Tampa Bay Times and writes editorials as a member of the editorial board, mostly about science, education, environment and civil rights. He was a 2016 Pulitzer finalist in public service for editorials based on Failure Factories, a series about St. Petersburg schools that were allowed to resegregate, become almost exclusively poor, and then were denied the resources to serve their challenged students. The series went on to win the local reporting Pulitzer for three of the Times' metro reporters. He has contributed on occasion to PolitiFact, the fact-checking website owned by the Poynter Institute, which, in turn, owns the Times.
