Edgar Ross Resigns from GERS Board

Former Judge Edgar Ross has tendered his resignation from the Government Employee Retirement System, effective March 31, citing personal reasons. According to the board, a special election will be held to fill the remainder of Ross’s term.

“Judge Ross’s experience as a learned attorney, former attorney general, judge and senator, as well as his knowledge of government operations, contributed immensely to the board,” GERS officials said in an unsigned statement from the board.

Ross was an elected retiree representative and vice president of the board. He was elected for a second term on March 17, 2016 and his term would have run until March 16, 2021.
