Hutchinson lobbyist moves to Teacher Retirement System

Rett Hatcher, director of legislative affairs for Gov. Asa Hutchinson, has left the governor's staff to go to work Wednesday as deputy director of the Arkansas Teacher Retirement System.

He'll be paid $114,028.

Long-time ATRS Director George Hopkins, a former Democratic senator, tells me not to read the hire as an indication  he's going anywhere soon. He had an opening and he said Hatcher's resume was a perfect fit for the job.

In informing the ATRS Board of the hire, Hopkins said he'd worked with Hatcher on legislative issues since 2015. He said he was informed, highly respected by legislators and well-liked by his co-workers. Hatcher, 30, has a law degree and has passed two of the four parts of the CPA exam and awaiting results on the other two. Hopkins noted that Hatcher, though only 30, has 10 years of credit in state retirement systems, including three for work as a police officer.
