WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) – We found an email on the county server from New Hanover County Commission Chairman Jonathan Barfield to a constituent that says he supports neighborhood schools.

That’s not what some New Hanover County School Board members say. Two, Chairman Don Hayes and Member Janice Canvenaugh, say that Barfield threatened them directly, saying he could affect their budget directly because of their vote in favor of neighborhood schools.

However, on March 31st, Richard C. sent an email to Barfield saying, “I fully SUPPORT neighborhood schools…..FLAT OUT.”

In response, Barfield replied, “Me too. I love the concept.”
