WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) — New Hanover Commissioner Brian Berger returned our messages today that we left yesterday and said a stomach bug kept him from going to Monday’s commission meeting.

He also said he didn’t go see a doctor because he didn’t think he could get in. He said he did not inform Chairman Jonathan Barfield that he was sick either.

Meanwhile Commissioner Jason Thompson, who had surgery last week, did show up for the meeting, even though he was in obvious pain. Thompson says Barfield encouraged him to try to make the meeting so that they would be ensured of a quorum.

Berger also told us he still wants to pay back travel money he booked through the county but never used. But now he says county staff keeps changing the total, and he’s not sure what it is and that he’s not sure whom he should pay.

His irresponsibility really is mind boggling. How could Brian not know that Jason was going to be out, and so therefore there wouldn’t be a quorum if Berger was going to be at home on the crapper?

How come he can send a thousand text messages and slit-wrist photos to that classy lady-friend, but can’t make a phone call or text to anyone with the county?

However, the article states that Berger “said he didn’t go see a doctor because he didn’t think he could get in.” So the issue isn’t that he should have gone to see a doctor over a little stomach bug… it is that once again he’s saying something questionable.

Mr. Berger has very good medical insurance benefits which would go along way towards paying for an emergency room visit.
He also has available to him a clinic at the Government Center where he could have been seen before the B.O.C. meeting.
