WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – New Hanover County School Board Chairman Don Hayes says County Commission Chairman Jonathan Barfield recently got in his face and threatened him over redistricting decisions.

Hayes says Barfield is now making good on that threat, trying to take control of the school board’s budget.

While threatening him, Hayes said Barfield told him he was unhappy about redistricting and that it could affect their funding.

No word yet from Barfield on if he agrees with Hayes accusation.
