In recent times, the governor has received some praise from Mrs. Hansen, including for his efforts in saving the Government Employees' Retirement System.
"I am extremely happy that the Bryan-Roach administration made a move and formula that worked because we saw the money going into the bank at G.E.R.S. — over $89 million. So I am grateful that they were able to do that," Ms. Hansen said in the latest episode of her program, published on April 16.
