No Perdue solution to group homes Medicaid dilemma

Gov. Bev Perdue will not present a solution to the problem with funding for group homes for people with mental disabilities today, as she said she would on Monday.

Group home providers, residents, and their families are waiting anxiously for Perdue's announcement because thousands are in jeopardy of losing Medicaid money that helps pay for their lodging. The change comes Jan. 1.

"I think we are still examining all of our options," said Perdue spokeswoman Christine Mackey. The office will announce its move next week, she said.

Personnel file: Pearse Edwards rejoins Gov. Perdue's staff

Pearse Edwards is rejoining Gov. Bev Perdue's office 14 months after he departed.

He assumes his former post as senior advisor on communications and even retakes his old office. Edwards most recently worked as a spokesman for Lt. Gov. Walter Dalton's Democratic primary campaign and then led a communications firm in Greensboro.

His move comes days after two top Perdue staffers departed the lame-duck administration. Perdue's chief communications aide Jon Romano left for a job in D.C. Perdue press secretary Chris Mackey will assume the communications director responsibilities. Her position will not be filled.
