The Issue is that our result set included an array column.

SQL

select 

          tblUSR.name
            as "region"

        , array_agg
            (
                tblUSS.name
            )
                as "stateAsArray"

from   us.state tblUSS

inner join us.region tblUSR

        on tblUSS.region = tblUSR.name

group by
    tblUSR.name

order by
    tblUSR.name

Output
