Rochester-based journalist David Cay Johnston has been elected to a second term as president of Investigative Reporters and Editors Inc., a national non-profit organization aimed at improving the quality of investigative reporting.

The IRE has been in existence since 1975 and has grown from 4,200 members to more than 4,500 during the past year. Johnston has served as president since June 2012.

Johnston is a journalist and author, and, among other things, a guest lecturer at Syracuse University College of Law and Whitman School of Management.

The Brighton-resident won the Pulitzer Prize for Beat Reporting in 2001 for reporting on tax loopholes in the New York Times. Johnston is also a radio essayist and television commentator for WXXI–AM 1370.
