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.

Wake-up our local delegation! Make calls, write e-mails and text our local delegation, Tom Goolsby, Ted Davis, and the chairman of the Republican party to find a way to remove Berger!

I’m sorry, but your statement, “NO ONE can get in to see a doctor without weeks of waiting” is totally untrue. When I’m sick and call my doctor, they ALWAYS either work me in the same day or the next. I’ve never had to wait “weeks” to see a doctor. As usual, it’s just an excuse that Berger uses to try to justify his behavior.

Mr. Berger one time you stated that you would pay back the money you owe the citizens of NHC “next week”. Another time you said you would bring a check to the next B.O.C. meeting because you wanted a large audience. So what happened? Did you forget? I think not. I think you never intend to repay what you owe. The County staff has given you clear information as to the amount you owe. Stop lying, pay up and please resign.
