Gov. Bev Perdue got a surprise Christmas present from her son.
Garrett Perdue, an economic development attorney, set up a shell of a company called Perdue Global LLC for the outgoing Democrat that may take form in January or beyond.
According to the Triangle Business Journal, the corporate entity was registered in late October with the North Carolina Secretary of State’s Office.
“It was a Christmas present,” Garrett told TBJ, “set up in a totally transparent way… to be used by members of my family if they want to explore opportunities.”
He added: “I will say that I’m excited about the arrival of a new administration, and excited about the opportunity of being able to get some work done in North Carolina. If you know of anyone with an economic development idea, have them call me.”
