WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — At a candidate forum Monday night hosted by 91.3fm WHQR, Democratic candidate for NC Senate District 9 Deb Butler addressed her recent comment at another debate, in which she referred to County Commissioner Brian Berger’s state of mind as “mentally challenged.”
“It’s clear to me that Commissioner Berger is not fit to serve,” Butler said. “He does not attend all of the meetings. He’s frequently late. He’s doing these late-night diatribes that accuse people of conspiracy. Again, the business of the people has to come first.”
Butler also said it may come down to passing legislation for a recall election to get the county back on track.
