It appears the changes in the Blunt Administration are not over yet. Last month, Ed Martin resigned as Chief of Staff in the wake of the controversy over retention of e-mails. Now, Governor Matt Blunt (R-MO) has a new General Counsel to advise him on legal dealings.

Lowell Pearson, who had served as Deputy Director of the State Revenue Department, replaces Henry Herschel. Governor Blunt’s Press Secretary Jessica Robinson confirms Herschel is being appointed an Administrative Law Judge at the Division of Workers’ Compensation. Pearson had moved to the Governor’s Office when Trish Vincent, who had been Revenue Director, was named Blunt’s Chief of Staff to replace Martin.
