The executive director of Colorado’s public pension system has been on leave for a month. PERA won’t say why.

The Colorado Sun: The leader of Colorado’s $60 billion-plus public pension system has been on a leave of absence for more than a month and officials at the Public Employees’ Retirement Association won’t discuss why or how long he will be away. 

Ron Baker, who is paid more than $400,000 a year to lead PERA, went on leave March 8. A day later, the organization’s 16-member board held an unscheduled meeting where they convened in executive session for nearly three hours to discuss “specific legal questions.” 

“There was no other business to discuss,” meeting minutes say.
