Berger erased from county website


WILMINGTON, NC (WWAY) -- It did not take long for New Hanover County's government to move on from Commissioner Brian Berger.

A WWAY viewer noticed that at least as early as yesterday afternoon Berger's picture and biography had been removed from the county's website. A page on the site showing the commissioners has a silhouette that says, "No Photo Available" with the caption "Vacant" where the commissioner's name would be. Clicking on the image takes you to a high-resolution photo of Commissioner Thomas Wolfe. A phone number listed under the image still rings to Berger's office voicemail. Though it's no longer listed on the page, a message sent to Berger's e-mail account did not bounce back. Berger's biography is still available on the site by entering his name in the site's search engine.

Commissioners voted 3-2 Monday to approve a petition of amotion removing Berger from office.

Commissioners have said they will wait for now to fill Berger's seat. He has 30 days to appeal the decision to New Hanover County Superior Court.

I guess they are counting on

I guess they are counting on "out of sight, out of mind". When the next election comes up the voters of New Hanover County need to remind these tyrants, who really is in charge and they cannot make you forget what they have done by trying to erase all things Berger.

this whole debackel is just

this whole debackel is just discusting, watching these BULLYS and TYRANNICAL POLITICKERS gang up on poor brian burger and pick on him and play a game of "kick the autistic", brian burger is a good boy and him's did the best he could and he may not have been absolutely perfect and he may have shown a small lack of judgement here and their but no one's perfect and the level of audacious unconstitutionality that is shown by woodrow white and jon garfield and that other old man is bordering on the obscene, they are in affect canselling the voter's decision to elect him, they should all be impeached and be exiled to the green swamp to live in a cave, and brian burger should be made president of new hanover county, that would show them good old boy's they can't boss ppl around like that, ha!

I think you mean Barfield

I think you mean Barfield and he voting against the amotion. On this matter, you cannot blame him for the wrongdoing.

Is That You?

You sound nuttier than Berger. You must be buddies....OR......Berger? Is that you?


These three are simply bullies that didn't like Berger and used any means necessary to get rid of him. They were never scared of him. Is anyone buying that? For real? I think he was a guy with good intentions for the people of NHC. But problems in his personal life troubled him and then the media and fellow commissioners used his troubles to make him look even worse. Why could they not simply work with him the best they could? I don't hear any talk about the others' personal lives. Are they all squeaky clean? If they were, they aren't now! I believe in karma and hope they get what's coming to them. So people of NHC--kick them all out and get a fresh batch

The days of voting a

The days of voting a straight Republican ticket are over for me. Berger is no doubt a joke but this process they removed him by was a bigger joke.
