NEW HANOVER COUNTY, NC (WWAY) -- New Hanover County swore Rick Catlin and Brian Berger as their newest commissioners.
The two take the seats of former commissioners Bill Caster and Bobby Greer. The county commissioners also elected and welcomed Barfield as head of the commission. Barfield replaces current commissioner Jason Thompson. Thompson was named vice chair. Barfield's father served as chairman years ago in the county. He says he's excited about all the changes.
"We got a great compliment of two new commissioners coming on board," said Barfield. "I think they both bring something unique to the table. I think it's going to be a great addition to our county. I call it completing our puzzle."
The county held a reception Monday night for the newcomers.
