WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover County Commissioners held their agenda briefing meeting this afternoon. They expected controversy, but it never happened.

The board expected to hear from fellow commissioner Brian Berger about a number of things he asked to have added to the agenda, but that never happened.

Berger showed up 20 minutes late to Thursday’s agenda briefing meeting. He missed the item on Head Start he wanted to discuss.

Commissioners breezed through the agenda they will discuss Monday. They were almost done with Thursday’s meeting by the time Berger arrived.

When they reviewed three other items Berger asked to add near the end of the meeting, he then removed them. When we asked him why, he said he did not remember asking to have them added in the first place.

We also asked if Berger planned to pay the county back for money he owes that kept him from attending a conference in Chapel Hill last week. He said he planned to do that at the meeting on Monday, because there would be a bigger audience.

Berger was also asked if he was planning to support anyone to take over the commission seat left empty when Ted Davis replaced Danny McComas in the state House of Representatives. Another could open if Rick Catlin wins his state House race in November. Berger said he supported a few candidates, but would have some trepidation supporting former County Manager Bruce Shell.

The items Berger removed from the agenda include consideration of a resolution that commissioners will serve on all boards and committees, policy clarification, and a public information discussion.

Who cares? It doesn’t matter.
He is a sad individual. And will not get reelected.
But no worse than the others.
Remember Jason Thompson telling a member of the public “meet me in the
parking lot and we will settle this” at a Board meeting?
And Barfield? He is a racist. Everyone knows that.
No wonder Ted Davis wanted to leave this board and go to Raleigh.
Catlin is getting off too – no surprise there.
Maybe some reasonable folks will get back on this board soon.

There are medical conditions out there that cause some memory loss. It’s not always due to drugs or losing one’s mind.

Whoa…wait…WHAT??!? Brian Berger has/had a mind??!? I’m afraid I’m gonna need some proof that he ever had one.

So…anyone? Anybody? Bueller? Bueller?? Please show proof.

Seriously…ANYONE??!?

He’s either doing drugs, or he’s totally lost his mind!

He wants a bigger audience to witness the, unprofessional, manner in which he will make payment. My bee is he will bring in a wheelbarrow of pennies.

Same old crap, just a different day. Next, he will claim someone else sent those disparaging texts and e-mails to the county manager and staff. Doesn’t remember? He was probably drunk again. One day, someone will just step on him and squish him like a bug. He makes all of these accusations and always backs down. It is time for the current contingent of commissioners to call him on it and not relent until he fesses up, shows proof of his allegations, submits to any questions in regards to his rants toward staff and gives him an ultimatum to settle his bill with the county. Enough is enough. More than two years left of this crap? The county has to endure this? The New Hanover County Republican party needs to speak up also. It is way past rock the boat time.

That is a fact. It is science.

Hey Berger, IT IS time for you to go away from New Hanover County. You do not seem to be the person we need on Council to help keep the County together. SO, leave but just remember, there is an election and hopefully those who voted you in WILL vote you out in November
