Integrity

What does it mean for a public servant to have integrity? Is it the same as being consistent? What if events demand a change of mind, policy or law? Does working with and for others support integrity or corrode it? Is the creation of a public persona a failure of integrity or a way of protecting the personal self? Can institutions have integrity? Can the sustain important values when individuals lose sight of them? What of the people whom public servants serve: how can the public’s integrity be understood and respected?
