NC DHHS Head a Former Lobbyist

Incoming North Carolina Governor Beverly Perdue selected Lanier Cansler to head up the states Department of Health and Human Services, according to this report.

Cansler told reporters that he registered as a lobbyist strictly out of caution. He did no real lobbying other than to introduce his clients to lawmakers.

Perdue said she talked about lobbying issues extensively and that Cansler will not participate in decisions that might present a conflict of interest.
