The economic development process is flawed, outdated, and secretive...and it’s costing taxpayers big bucks. Brian Berger has been calling on local governments that handout taxpayers’ hard-earned money to poorly performing "insider clubs" like "The Committee of 100" (WID), including New Hanover County and the City of Wilmington, to conduct a comprehensive review of economic development activities and formulate a real 21st Century strategic plan to add private sector jobs to the local economy.
ABLE is RIGHT, it is irresponsible for New Hanover County government to invest even more of your tax dollars in a broken and incompetent system, especially on an issue as important as jobs and economic
growth, without first investigating alternative policies which might provide improved results and more new jobs for the local economy.
Brian Berger is the one candidate for Commissioner who has advocated reforms for many years, but maybe when unemployment is high enough and there's no more cigars left to charge on the taxpayer-supported credit card, the air 'round here is brown and the local waters even more polluted, ABLE's efforts and Brian Berger's reform efforts will lead to changes that are long overdue. Thank You ABLE and Keep up the good fight for our community.
