WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — Twenty-five minutes before New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger was supposed to do a live interview here at the TV station, he called and pulled the plug. He called it a “postponement” not a “cancellation” even though he confirmed twice over the weekend that he would show up.

He did tell us on the phone, though, that he is considering resigning, but he needs to talk the other commissioners first.

New Hanover County Commission Chair Jonathan Barfield said over the phone that he hasn’t talked to Berger yet but did leave him a message. He also said that he was a little surprised that Berger was considering a resignation but that “Brian needs to do what’s best for Brian.”

Berger also said Monday that he plans to go to the County Commission meeting Tuesday, and that he may talk about his future at that meeting.

Some think he just needs more time to sort out his personal life.

“If we’re all asked to resign when we are a little bit unstable I don’t think any of us would have jobs,” said Anita Naughton, a New Hanover County resident. “Give him a chance. I don’t see anything so critical in the county right now that he can’t just take a little bit of time off to get himself together. If he can’t then let him resign.”

Well, I didnt vote for Berger but I wouldnt say the Tea Party is a bunch of whacko’s. Thats like saying, the Democrats and Republicans are a bunch of money sucking toads and the people that follow are gullible idiots.

speak up? he just sits there and doesn’t say anything. Doesn’t speak out in meetings for any known agenda at all. Just out of the room does he complain about being repressed.
I certainly won’t be voting for him again.

Who are you his cousin? Speak up? Stand up for what is right? Will not be swayed? Your as crazy as He is? Brian Berger has done ABSOLUTELY nothing but embarrass himself, the county as a whole, act like a lovelorn just reaching puberty little schoolboy Who by the way ended up stiffing another county resident when He took out her automobile and lied to her. Hell, He even lies to his main man Ben McCoy. I guarantee no other member of the commission is challenged by anything this Mental Giant… Read more »

Could you please make Wuzzardo’s rant music louder and more intrusive upon what he was trying to say? I could almost hear him, and I almost became undistracted about how mismatched the background noise was to a human speaking voice. Whoever produced that deserves a promotion!
