WILMINGTON, NC (StarNewsOnline.com) — New Hanover County Commissioner Brian Berger will have the chance to represent the county on several boards and committees, after being removed from most of these last year.

Commissioner Jason Thompson resigned from all boards and committees he served on as a county representative at Tuesday’s board meeting and asked that Berger take his place.

"I would like to make a motion that I be removed from all of my boards and committees, and I would make a motion that Mr. Berger be appointed to those in the short term," he said. "Simply because right now he doesn’t have any and he can do them."

    Mr. Thompson, why would you do this given what you know of Brian Berger? How can Berger’s appopintment to Boards serve the citizens in any way? This man needs to be ignored not elevated. I am profoundly disappointed at your lack of concern for the citizens of NHC which you are supposed to represent. This decision certainly was a poor one.
    I wonder why you would do this. In fact I wonder why Mr. Barfield would vote in agreement to appointing Berger to Boards? Some backroom deal for a future appointment to a vacated seat possibly?

    Is this Thompsons way of getting back at voters for not re electing him? He wanted Berger voted out and now gives him his seats on boards? This is why the spoiled child was not re elected to start with!!
