Cansler mental health advocate 'support' was private provider, The Arc

I was wondering who all those 'mental health advocates who supported Cansler as a choice' were.

Come out, come out, wherever you are: who were the mental health 'advocates' besides The Arc that supported the appointment of Mr. Revolving Door Cansler?

So, he was a lobbyist for:

1. The Arc (mental health provider)

2. Value Options, the authorizing agent for NC Medicaid services

3. the company that snatched the Medicaid contract away from EDS which does the billing for NC Medicaid.


So he assisted Visingardi in eviscerating mental health in NC via privatization (provides competition!). Then seeing how badly things were going, his smart accountant head saw the EXIT sign; quick revolve around, make some big bucks, seat some of his friends (those 'mental health advocates' making money off of mentally ill people), and VOILA, back in the ringleader's seat.

I find it hard to imagine how Perdue could have made a WORSE choice.

Gosh, I better run over and see if I can get a job as a 'consultant' with The Arc before they read this post.
