Hickenlooper Joins Stapleton’s PERA Lawsuit

I know for a fact that the governor’s office is legitimately worried about the parlous state of PERA’s finances.  Here’s some evidence:

Gov. John Hickenlooper has filed a brief in support of Colorado Treasurer Walker Stapleton’s lawsuit seeking information about employee benefits in the state’s pension system.

The Democratic governor’s brief asks the Colorado Supreme Court to hear Stapleton’s lawsuit after the Court of Appeals ruled against Stapleton in August.

Sure, there’s a political component to anything a governor does.  That doesn’t mean that there’s nothing else to it.  I really think this is a governance issue for him, as well.
