BERGER MEANS BUSINESS THE MAN IS SINCERE AND IS CONCERNED ...It's often said that politicians can truly be themselves when they don't have a future run for office on their minds. Such appears to be the case with New Hanover County Commissioner Jason Thompson.

Apparently upset that some wanted to access his county-subsidized cell phone records, Thompson decided to stop taking a stipend for his phone and stop taking calls concerning county business.

He'll return calls. But he wants callers to call the county commissioners' office and they'll send him an email, giving us yet another way to decrease efficiency in government.

This is a childish solution and a cop-out for Thompson. He was once seen by many as a maverick that would not back down from an opinion or a fight. But with this move he appears to be checking out early and decreasing his commitment to service.

Jason Thompson is still a county commissioner, and he still needs to be responsive. If this is any indication of how he is going to serve his remaining time in office, then why wait for the next election?
