WILMINGTON, NC (STARNEWSONLINE.COM) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger is back on the offensive challenging a recently passed travel policy after his request to use county funds to attend an upcoming conference was denied.

His request was denied because Berger is in violation of the county’s new travel policy because he owes the county $547.09 for unused hotel rooms and conference fees.

    Star News is pathetic rag sheet- biased and dishonest. Catlin talks about relevance when he is no more and no less than a political jackal-short on facts long on slimy tactics. Kevin why not tell us which Republican operative offered you Berger’s stolen notes? Kevin why not tell us which County employee violated the law and offered you an exclusive story when they violated Berger’s confidentiality and the law by releasing info directly to you? Catlin and the other jerks have a lot more to hide and explain than Berger.
    The smear job and gang up by the vulger wilmington cabal on Berger will boomarang.
